      Vincent Kompany felt Burnley got a good point late on against Watford when he pointed out that the Clarets found a way to get something out of an encounter they weren’t at their best.

      Joao Pedro gave the Hornets the lead at Turf Moor after the visitors capitalized on a mistake by Aro Muric. Points appeared to go to the visitors, but Michael Obafemi struck from an injury-time corner to claim a point for the Clarets in a 1-1 draw.

      The point leaves Burnley eight points clear at the top of the table, with second-placed Sheffield United having one game to play. It was January signing Obafemi’s first goal with the club.

      Kompany thinks it was a good point for his team and was glad Obafemi found the back of the net. He believes his team weren’t as economical with their chance conversion as they have been in recent weeks and noted the quality of the opposition they were playing against.

      He said: “I think it’s a good point and I didn’t necessarily plan for the drama, but it definitely shows that this team has the right energy and attitude about it and we’re happy for Michael Obafemi for his first goal for us. and the group found a way.

      “In any of these moments where we’ve scored late goals, we’ve been on top, so in my opinion it wasn’t luck or anything, it was just timing, it was in the last minute instead of the 75th minute, but in terms of the pressure we put on opponents, overall they are a true reflection of the nature of the game, but it does add a bit of drama of course.

      “We needed (the goal) to come from someone else. I think in terms of performance, if you had told me at the beginning of the season, this is how you will play at home against Watford, I would have signed him immediately. There is absolutely no shame in how we acted, we did very well.
