Burnley's player of the season so far - and how they compare to Aston Villa and Brentford's

It’s been a slow start for Burnley in the Premier League this season.

The Clarets will have wanted to hit the ground running, but have had to settle for just one point from their opening three matches.

That came in a 1-1 draw against Leeds United last weekend, although Sean Dyche’s men were probably disappointed not to pick up the win after succumbing to a late Patrick Bamford equaliser.

But despite their relatively sluggish start, there have been some standout performers at Turf Moor.
