Sean Dyche insists the New Year’s Day clash with Liverpool is a game to savour for Burnley fans.
Following an historic 2017, the Clarets kick off 2018 by hosting the Reds, who are 15 games unbeaten in all competitions.
But with 34 points accumulated, Dyche has told his players to walk out with their shoulders back and go for the win!
The gaffer said: “Liverpool have certainly got into a rich vein of form. They are scoring goals and have that attacking feel about them at the moment, so we know we are going to have to play well and defend properly.
“We know all the challenges in the Premier League, but it’s great to be talking about games like this with 34 points in your locker and going out at Turf Moor to a full house.
“The fans at Burnley know they have a team who will give everything and I am so proud of that.
"We are ending this year on a points’ total that nobody gave us a chance of achieving - and I’m not quite sure I did either.
“It’s another measure of how far the club has come. We go into these games with our shoulders back and it’s another of those occasions to be enjoyed.
“However, still with a mindset to go and win. We’re not just there to have fun. We’re there to go and win and although we’re in a tough run of games at the moment, we are delivering performances and could have earned more than we have.”
The Clarets could again be without Chris Wood and Stephen Ward for the visit of Jurgen Klopp’s side.
And if you can’t get to Turf Moor, Clarets Player HD will have live commentary from 2.45pm.
