We will bounce back from West Brom defeat

Burnley FC

9:24am 30th September 2014

Debutant Nathaniel Chalobah has insisted Burnley will learn quickly after a disappointing defeat to West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.

The Clarets lost for the first time in four games as Albion ran out 4-0 winners at The Hawthorns.

Chalobah was introduced at the break for his Premier League and Burnley bow, but despite a promising performance he couldn’t prevent the team from suffering their second away league defeat of this calendar year.

And while the Chelsea loanee was quick to concede that the hosts were the better side, he was also convinced the Clarets would learn from the disappointment.

He said: “We were out-passed today and West Brom were the better team.

“Fair play to them. They were very good at what they were doing and they had obviously worked on set pieces quite a lot on the training ground.

“But at the end of the day, we’ve got to be switched on to things like that and we are going to work on it.

“The lads have been fantastic so far this season and today it might have been more of a concentration thing.

“We were just outfoxed. It’s something that we can work on and we’ve got a fantastic bunch of players to do it.

“We’ve got to keep our heads and concentration. It’s not the end of the world and we need to push on next week.”

On a personal level, Chalobah was proud to have made his first ever start in the Premier League and admits it was a great feeling to step out at The Hawthorns with his Clarets teammates for the first time, albeit in difficult circumstances.

Chalobah added: “For me, it was more about coming on and making an impact today.

“It was the best feeling ever stepping on the pitch. Just looking around the stadium I was lost for words a bit, but I tried to get my head right and settle into the game as quickly as I could.

“Coming on as a sub, you’ve got to get to grips with the pace of the game and I tried to do my best by getting on the ball as much as I could.

“It’s just unfortunate that we lost today.”
