The Clarets had to dig deep on occasion, and had leading goalscorer Chris Wood to thank several times for his contributions.
The New Zealander hit 12 goals and three assists in 33 top flight outings this term, and was duly awarded with the club’s Player of the Season award.
Admittedly, he didn't score in the last three games of the season, but Burnley had confirmed their survival by that stage, and manager Sean Dyche said: “I think his second half of the season has been very strong, particularly in the last few games.
“His all-round form...I thought he was excellent against Liverpool, his hold up play is improving all the time, his physicality is improving - he can be a real handful as well as being a talented player.
“I’ve been very impressed with him over the season for sure."
Wood’s form also earned him praise from Premier League legend Alan Shearer.
The former Newcastle United striker said: "I like him, I like what he does for the team and he is the focal point for them He is very good at occupying two centre halves.
"He is a get out for Burnley if they want because they are not afraid to knock it long.
"He is horrible to play against and he won't give defenders a moment's peace."
