How long were Burnley in Premier League? As of the end of the 2022–23 season, the team have spent 59 seasons in the top division of English football, 47 in the second, 11 in the third, and 7 in the fourth. In defence Burnley looked uncharacteristically jittery and they lacked ideas in the final third, mainly hoping for a corner or long throw-in to get near the opposition net. Collins caused further concern for Burnley fans after the interval. A deep cross from Jacob Murphy looked simple for him to deal with but when trying to knock behind for a corner, he instead aimed for the bottom corner and only his poor connection allowed Pope to spare his blushes. Wilson had no problem finding the bottom corner on the hour. Allan Saint-Maximin dribbled into the box and passed into the unmarked striker’s path, allowing Wilson to slot into a gaping net. Cornet provided hope after the makeshift right-back Collins pulled the ball back for the Ivorian. He needed two chances but, after Martin Dubravka saved his first shot, Cornet’s follow-up volley kissed the net to allow Turf Moor to find its voice with the clock ticking. Everyone in claret and blue was fired up. The ball was repeatedly sent into the box for Wout Weghorst and Ashley Barnes to attack. Barnes drove a cross into the area but Weghorst’s outstretched leg could only get the slightest of touches and the ball went wide from five yards. Crosses were flying in from all angles in search of a goal that never came, to leave Burnley with one certainty: they are relegated. A lack of squad depth has cost them: five players without a Premier League appearance this season were on the bench and others played out of position. Burnley go into the summer without a permanent manager and a number of key players out of contract.
