Source; Burnley Manager React At St James’ Park During Newcastle United Defeat”

Newcastle United defeated Vincent Kompany’s Burnley 2-0 at St. James’ Park to win the Premier League for the third time in a row.

Despite leaving St James’ Park empty-handed, Burnley manager Vincent Kompany was happy with his team’s tenacious attempts.

The freshly promoted team was defeated by Newcastle United 2-0 thanks to goals from Miguel Almiron and Alexander Isak in each half.

A third straight Premier League victory for the Magpies. Burnley, meanwhile, lost for the fifth time in six games, dropping to the bottom of the standings.

“You’re playing against a very good side so it’s supposed to be tough, it’s not supposed to be easy coming to St James’ Park,” said Kompany. “We got off to a good start, we stayed in the game, but I think we made a mistake that cost us the game.


“I can’t criticize the team’s performance; they fought and had character, in my opinion. Not just with the things that people want to link us with, but also with box defense, putting in the effort, winning second balls, and the rest of the games you play against a good side.

“I believe that many managers, particularly those of freshly promoted teams, have come here and stated that in order to win games or obtain results, you need to have a little bit of luck on your side and seize the moment.

We had the exact opposite experience, yet we managed to stay in the game.

In the first 10 minutes, Clarets winger Luca Koleosho defeated Dan Burn, while Nick Pope had to play well to block Zeki Amdouni’s shot. Almiron’s 14th-minute goal broke the tie, giving United the whole contract.

The third point was subsequently added by Isak from the penalty spot after Anthony Gordon was called for a foul.

It’s a good time to take chances since we were aware of their strength, which was their intensity, Kompany added. “We produced opportunities during the first 10 to 15 minutes of the first half and even in the second half.

“But the game happened with the bits in between, the mistake, the penalty and Newcastle are a top side, they showed it’s a really tough place to come to. “From our perspective, we were in the game and that’s important.”
