Kieran Trippier insists Burnley are looking forward to a challenging run-in to the Premier League season.
The Clarets remain in the bottom three following the 2-0 defeat at the hands of in-form Liverpool at Anfield on Wednesday.
However, with ten fixtures left to be played before the end of the campaign, the Burnley right-back is relishing what promises to be an exciting season finale, beginning with a home game against champions Manchester City a week on Saturday.
Trippier said: “It was a tough game on Wednesday. We were organised defensively and attacking as the game went on.
“In the first half the goal killed us a little bit. I thought we pressed well and caused them some problems in the second half, but unfortunately it wasn’t enough, so we’ll review it, move on and get ready for the next one.
“City will be another tough opposition and every game in this league is a tough one, but we fought so hard last year to be in the Premier League and this is where we want to be.
“We were 2-0 down at half-time at their place earlier on in the season, but we came back and got a great result, so hopefully we can do it again.”
Trippier, who has started every league and cup match for Burnley this campaign, added: “I’ve been looking forward to every game we played this season, because this is where you want to play in.
“There are big 10 games now, but we took it game by game last year and we will do the same until the end of this season.
“We all believe in one another and our mood has never changed this season – it is like it’s been all the way through.
“Obviously, it’s been tough for us at times this season, as you would expect, but this is where we want to be, playing against these teams and players week in, week out.
“We give everything in every game we come into and that’s every single player, whether he starts or comes on. We have freedom and smile on our faces and we’re trying to get results.
“Hopefully we can get more wins on the board by the end of the season.”
