Burnley in numbers

Burnley moved up into fourth place in the Premier League after a late goal from substitute Ashley Barnes secured a 1-0 win over Stoke at Turf Moor.

Here, Press Association Sport takes a look at the numbers behind what has been an impressive campaign so far by Sean Dyche's side.

£33m - Burnley's wage bill for the 2016/2017 campaign. Arsenal's was at some £234m, with Manchester United the highest at £264m.

20,136 - Burnley's average home attendance from nine Premier League matches at Turf Moor. In comparison, Chelsea's figures are 41,499 from eight fixtures while West Ham, struggling for points at the other end of the table have averaged 56,954 from seven matches at the London Stadium.

£14.76m - Burnley broke the club record transfer fee to bring in forward Chris Wood from Leeds, while Manchester City laid out a cool £51.75m for Monaco left-back Benjamin Mendy.

£30.64m - The amount of money Burnley spent during the 2017 summer transfer window. Tottenham, meanwhile, spent a total of £61.4m - while cashing in on defender Kyle Walker, who moved to Manchester City in a £45m deal.

3 - The number of goals the Clarets have let in at home from their nine games - the same amount as United and Liverpool, while City and Tottenham have conceded double that as hosts.

31 - The points Sean Dyche's side have collected from 17 games played, with nine wins. Liverpool have 30, Arsenal 29 and Tottenham 28 - but each from 16 matches so far.

2 - Burnley have lost just twice at home so far in the Premier League - the same number as Chelsea - against West Brom in August and to a controversial late penalty against Arsenal in November. In comparison, United, the Gunners and Spurs can better that by just one result each, while City and Liverpool remain unbeaten on their home grounds.

12 - The total amount of Premier League goals Burnley have conceded, a statistic bettered by only leaders City and Manchester United (11 each).
