U23s Premier League Cup Group Confirmed.

Clarets to face Liverpool, Bournemouth and West Brom in group stages.

28 August 2018

Michael Duff's development side have been drawn into a group alongside Liverpool, AFC Bournemouth and West Brom.

Burnley’s U23s will be competing in the Premier League Cup for the third consecutive season.

The Clarets failed to make it out the group stages last season in the final group fixture, after falling to 2-1 defeat at home to Swansea City.

The U23’s have faced Bournemouth before in this competition, a qualifier back in August 2016 saw Burnley proceed into the group stages after a 3-2 victory over the Cherries at Turf Moor.

Duff’s side will play each team in group C home and away throughout the tournament.

Liverpool U23s were knocked out of the Premier League Cup last season, at the last-16 stage after losing 3-1 to Middlesbrough at Bishop Auckland.

Meanwhile, the Baggies in a group alongside Aston Villa, Sheffield United and Ipswich Town failed to proceed into the knock-out stages of the competition.

Dates and venues are set to be announced in due course.
