Muric howler costs Burnley potential win

2024/04/13 17:40

Arijanet Muric's 79th-minute mistake cost Burnley a potentially vital three points at home to Brighton & Hove Albion.

The Clarets are desperate for any kind of points as they hope to escape the drop zone and this will feel like two points lost for Vincent Kompany.

The home side had a huge chance to take the lead in the first half when  Jacob Bruun Larsen put his effort wide from very close range.

Indeed, Burnley were probably the better of the two teams overall and did take the lead in the 74th minute when Josh Brownhill took advantage of Carlos Baleba's poor backpass to go through on goal.

Brighton goalkeeper Bart Verbruggen did well to get out of his goal and get in the way of Brownhill's effort but the ball somehow still found its way into the back of the net.

Then just five minutes later Muric made a costly error. The goalkeeper was receiving a pass from Sander Berge but saw the ball then sneak in under his foot as he attempted to control the ball.

It was a bizarre moment that will have Burnley fans cursing their luck this season, especially when you consider the manner of their defeat to Everton last week. The Clarets are now on 20 points, six away from safety.

As a Burnley fan, Muric's 79th-minute mistake was gut-wrenching. We were so close to securing three crucial points but it slipped away due to one unfortunate error. The team fought hard and deserved better.

As a die-hard Burnley fan, I am absolutely gutted with Muric's mistake in the 79th minute. We were on track for a crucial win against Brighton and Hove Albion, but this error has cost us two vital points. We can't afford to lose any points in our fight to avoid relegation. Kompany must be frustrated with this missed opportunity. We had our chances, but we need to be more clinical in front of goal. Let's regroup and
