Burnley, recently promoted to the Premier League, faces early season challenges. Vincent Kompany, their manager, acknowledges the complexities of the top flight.
After securing the Championship title last season with 101 points, Burnley has struggled in the Premier League, earning just one point from their first four matches. They've faced three home defeats, conceding three or more goals each time.
Burnley's fortunes improved with a 1-1 draw against Nottingham Forest, although they missed out on three points due to Callum Hudson-Odoi's brilliant equalizer. A disallowed late goal by Lyle Foster added to the drama.
Vincent Kompany expressed his challenges in adapting to Premier League rules, especially those involving VAR decisions and handballs. He trusts the referees' intentions but admits to switching off when it comes to the complexities of the laws.
Despite the challenges, Kompany sees potential for Burnley in the Premier League. He believes they can compete with various teams in the league and aims for continued improvement to secure more positive results.
Lyle Foster's red card for elbowing means he'll miss three games, starting with the match against Manchester United. Kompany acknowledges the mistake and emphasizes the importance of supporting Foster's mental well-being for his return to form.
