“But for the fans, the town, the players, the board, it’s to be enjoyed, these times, but it’s not a negative, it’s just to say, the reality is still out there, 40 points for us is a good marker - that’s your first marker, and anything that comes beyond that...that’s still the marker."

Burnley and their opponent next week, Arsenal are level on points, another win at Turf Moor could mean a move up on the table for the Clarets. 

“The next game is the most important, and the bigger picture, the 40 points.

“It just continues the building, the team’s mentality, the development, and everyone keeps moving forward.”
