Sean Dyche insists he has “total belief” that Burnley will be a Premier League club next season.
The Clarets have eight games left as they look to gain the points necessary to remain in the top flight, starting with the visit of Spurs this Sunday (1.30pm KO).
But after being buoyed by the recent home victory over Manchester City to move within a point of 17th placed Sunderland, Dyche is confident his players can achieve their goals.

The Burnley boss said: “I’ve never be one to prove people wrong. It’s always been about proving yourself right and how you conduct yourself.
“We have a clear way of working and wins have been hard to come by because of the jump in quality, but we think, slowly but surely, we’ve refocused on what the job is and I think we are now delivering good performances.
“I have total belief that we will be in the Premier League.”
Dyche, whose side will complete a run of eight games against the current top eight clubs with the visit of Spurs and, a week later, Arsenal, added: “We have had a run of games where people said we wouldn’t get a point.
“Well, we’ve got four and we want more.
“I think opponents know we are willing to give everything to win a game.
“They know the energy and physical desire of the team and behind that, the people who are really in the know realise there is quality there.
“It makes for a good mix, but we know we need to win more games. We beat Manchester City, but we need more of that.
“Tottenham and Arsenal are certainly tough games, but we will be ready.”
