Penalty deduction? Premier League newcomer faces scandal.


Burnley FC has been promoted to the English Premier League since April 8th. The Clarets’ outstanding season now appears to be suffering from a major blemish. Even a severe penalty should threaten.

The English governing body EFL is said to have started investigations into possible distortion of competition against Burnley FC. This is reported by the “Sun”.

Accordingly, Huddersfield Town, which is in 21st place in the table and fighting to stay in the league, complained that Burnley deliberately did not start with the best possible formation in mid-April in the 0-0 draw against FC Reading, a direct competitor of Huddersfield for relegation, and thus distorted the competition has.

As a result of the allegation, the EFL is said to have already contacted Burnley in writing, and the club pointed out that some players in the squad needed to gain match practice.

If convicted, the report says, Burnley could face a point deduction in addition to a fine.

It remains to be seen whether the appeal will be successful. When looking at the formation that Burnley team manager and ex-HSV star Vincent Kompany chose against Reading, there are certainly a few anomalies, but Burnley did not play without top performers.

With midfielder Josh Cullen, right-back Connor Roberts, Gladbach loanee Jordan Beyer and top scorer Nathan Tella, there were four players in the starting line-up who are among the seven players who have scored the most minutes under Kompany so far in 2022/23. Josh Brownhill, number three in this ranking, is also injured.

In addition to Tella, Lyle Foster (14 games/1 goal) and Scott Twine (15/2) and Scott Twine (15/2) were two offensive players on the pitch who didn’t belong to the first guard. In addition to Beyer, the rarely used Ameen Al-Dakhil (9 appearances) also defended, with substitute keeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell in goal.

Also, Tella was replaced by former Stuttgart player Darko Churlinov after an early injury. Churlinov (13 appearances/0 goals) is experiencing a weak season, with Anass Zaroury, a top performer who has been in the same position in recent weeks, has been left out for a long time.

By the way: Burnley played in a top line-up against Queens Park Rangers on Saturday – and lost 2-1 at home. QPR is now three points ahead of the alleged plaintiff Huddersfield Town in the table basement.
