Allardyce: Best performance I've seen

Last updated : 21 February 2021 By Wba-mad Editor

Sam Allardyce believes Albion's performance with ten-men at Burnley was the best he's ever seen from a side a man down. 

Albion were down to ten men for more than an hour when Semi Ajayi was sent off for deliberate handball. 

But it was the ten men who created the best chances as the game wore on with Albion unluckly not to take all three points. 

"We are showing how much we are improving," Allardyce told the BBC.

"That was one of the best 10-man performances I have ever seen in my time.

"I have actually won a lot of games with 10 men, and this one well deserved a win with 10 men, but unfortunately we have to kick ourselves for missing golden opportunities."

The draw moves Albion on to 14 points and still 11 behind 17th place Newcastle. 

Allardyce added: "It makes it more difficult because one more game has ticked by and we have not gained any points on teams near by to put them under pressure and make them think we are on our way and catching up.


"We are very, very close but unfortunately - because of our finishing today and against Manchester United - not close enough."
