Burnley all but secured Premier League survival with a 2-0 win over Cardiff at Turf Moor on Saturday.

Below we take a look at the key talking points.

Clarets are creating chances again

One of the main disappointments this season for Clarets fans has been the lack of creativity at times in the final third.

In the first half on Saturday, the home side carved open a number of chances and probably should have been ahead by more than just the single goal at half-time.

You could argue that a couple of chances fell to the wrong person in Ashley Westwood but it was good to see the midfielder in the mix at the attacking end of the pitch.

Most of Burnley’s creativity came down the left with Charlie Taylor and Dwight McNeil looking to get balls into the box at every opportunity, the pair being the standout players on the day.

Ashley Westwood's role continues to evolve

Westwood must be a contender for player of the year alongside Taylor given his fine performances since coming into the side.

The former Aston Villa man has always been a safe pair of hands when called upon but over the last few months he’s become much more than that and is now an essential cog in the middle of the park for Sean Dyche's side.

He scored last time out against Bournemouth, just a month after getting his first Burnley goal at Liverpool, and probably could have helped himself to a couple more against Cardiff City at Turf Moor on Saturday.

The chances were ultimately spurned but despite that he continued to probe going forward and getting himself into good positions in the final third.

Now Dyche's side can relax a little

In his post-match press conference Sean Dyche was at pains to point out at the Clarets were still not mathematically safe in the Premier League.

But given the fact they are now 11 points clear of the relegation zone, the pressure is certainly off going into the final four games of the season.

With the quality of the opposition coming up – home games against Manchester City and Arsenal and trips to Chelsea and Everton – it was important for Burnley to have some daylight between themselves and the drop and the three wins on the spin have given them that.

Dyche will already be planning for next season and I’m sure this campaign, full of ups and downs, has given him plenty to think about as we close in on the summer break.
