Michael Keane believes Burnley can rescue themselves from getting dropped to the second tier.
Sean Dyche’s side has been struggling in the top tier for some time and has failed to replicate their last season’s success. The Clarets finished seventh last season and had to go through the Europa League qualifiers in a bid to earn the rights to play on the European soil.
But their dreams shattered as they lost to Greek side Olympiacos in the playoffs. They also have had a poor start to their Premier League campaign as they managed to grind out just three wins out of the 18 matches in the top flight.
Despite their struggle in the relegation zone, former Clarets defender Keane thinks Burnley will shrug off their difficulties. “It’s probably a bit of confidence.
“It wasn’t an easy game by any means today, it was a really tough game, a proper battle and we had to fight for the whole 90 minutes. It wasn’t a walk in the park for us, it was still a tough match. It’s just little things and small margins that will change for them and then they’ll be back to winning games.”
“It’s not what Burnley are about but it happens to everyone. It happened to us last week, it’s just football.
“I’m sure they’ll bounce back and I hope they do. It’s a fantastic club with great people here and they’ve got the quality. I’m sure they’ll get back to what they’re good at.”
