Jeff Hendrick slaughtered on Twitter after Burnley’s 4-0 defeat to West Brom

Jeff Hendrick has been slaughtered online after Burnley’s 4-0 demolition at the hands of West Brom last night.

Sean Dyche’s team beat Crystal Palace 3-2 in a thrilling encounter last year, but produced an insipid performance at the Hawthorns on Monday Night Football.

Burnley decided to host a Twitter Q&A with the Irish international, and the summer signing from Derby took the brunt of the blame for last night’s heavy defeat.

Burnley signed Hendrick for a club record fee (£10.5 million) on deadline day, and the 26 year old is perhaps an easy target after such an ineffectual team display.

Hendrick was guilty of spurning a good opportunity early in the game, and was a spectator throughout as Tony Pulis’ side stormed to a comprehensive victory.

 

The abuse is unlikely to faze Hendrick, as it’s become part and parcel of being a professional footballer on social media.

Last night aside, the Dubliner has produced some good performances for the Clarets, and always puts in a big shift.
