Jay Rodriguez delivers message to Burnley teammates as poor start to the season continues

Despite their poor start to the season, Jay Rodriguez believes Burnley’s players will stick together.
The Clarets suffered their sixth straight home defeat on Saturday, falling to Crystal Palace 2-0.

The performance of Vincent Kompany’s men was much improved, but it was still insufficient to claim a victory.
As a result of only four points from their first 11 games, Burnley remain second from bottom.

“I’m obviously gutted,” Rodriguez told Clarets+ after Saturday’s defeat.

“We know Palace are a good side but I thought we dominated the game.

“To come away losing 2-0 is obviously disappointing but we’ll have to debrief it now, try to pick out the positives and pick ourselves up and go again, stick together as a group.

“They were built to do what they do, and they have good people, but in the Premier League, you get punished.”

“It’s a difficult one to take at this moment in time, but the main thing is to stick together as a group and move forward.”

Despite the poor start, Rodriguez is confident that Burnley will soon turn things around if they continue to do the right things and develop the right habits.

“The manager has touched on it and I think it’s really important not to get too high or too low in these situations,” the 34-year-old said.

“If you’re consistently doing what you need to do, which is work hard and keep doing the right things, then hopefully it will turn around. We won’t change from that.

“As much as it feels low now, I think we will have many more where we will feel high.”
