Burnley transfer news: Clarets to battle West Ham for defender, Liverpool make contact with Leeds target
Burnley could decide the Premier League’s relegation battle on Monday evening if they beat Fulham.
The Cottagers are hanging by a thread at the foot of the table, but would be 10 points adrift of safety with just three games left to play if they don’t secure a victory against the Clarets.
For their part, Sean Dyche’s men could climb up to 14th with a win, and would finally put to bed any lingering fears of an unlikely drop down to the Championship for themselves, Southampton, Brighton, and Newcastle United if they avoid defeat.
And the Turf Moor boss has made it clear that his side will go out to take all three points.
Speaking ahead of the game, he said: “I always make it clear to the team our thinking is to win the game.
“That’s the best way of going about it. It’s irrelevant the game in the sense that if your performance is right, it will look after the game.
“So we have tried to stay with that thinking. We have won big games down the years, very important games, and we know we’re not far away.
“There are always twists and tweaks, but that’s not about the game, that’s about the tactics of who we’re playing.
“We believe in the way we play, we believe in what we’re doing and that has been quite apparent from game seven until now, from having just two points there to where we are now."
