‘We’ll primarily focus on taking part in the video games and going onerous in every certainly one of them, that might be my private opinion.
‘I’m undoubtedly not questioning Mikel, however my opinion of my group is to maintain going onerous, hold working onerous, hold doing the suitable issues, and add within the element. That’s what I’ll be focussing on.’
Burnley are 4 factors from security with 11 video games to play and are coming off three straight defeats, failing to attain a purpose within the losses to Leicester, Chelsea and Brentford.
After the international break they host Manchester City, which may effectively not improve their run of type, but then face Everton and Norwich in back-to-back games which will be huge in their survival scrap.
Arsenal are three points ahead of Tottenham in fifth, with a game in hand on Spurs, so they are well positioned in the mean time.
