Hart: We'll Come Out Flying

3 September 2018

Joe Hart has vowed that Burnley will “fly out” following the international break and get their Premier League season back on track.

The experienced keeper admitted a frenzied opening month of the season, juggling domestic and European football, had taken its toll on Sean Dyche’s men.

But with two weeks to recharge the batteries the England international, whose man-of-the-match performance at the weekend kept the Clarets in the hunt in the home defeat to Manchester United, is confident of kick-starting the season at the fifth attempt on their return to action at Wolves.

“The break comes at a good time for us; it’s as simple as that,” admitted Hart.

"The European stuff has really run in to us and we need to hit the refresh button. We have to be honest and be able to look in the mirror and say it’s time to start again.

“We have a great set of lads who are running on empty and a great manager who believes in us. We will work together and get the right things done.

“We are going to reset and we are going to fly out at Wolves with everything we’ve got and get back to what made this club successful.”

Hart, who saved a penalty from Paul Pogba in the Turf Moor defeat to the Reds, added: “Frustrating is definitely the word.

“I thought Manchester United played really well for the first half and we didn’t really offer enough going forward.

“We were a bit disjointed and it’s an awful excuse, but we were tired and they were hot and reacted well.

“We tried to stay compact, but we gave them too much time 20 yards from goal and the second goal killed us really because I’m probably saving the shot I dive for, but it took an awful deflection.

“We tried to get back in it, especially with them being down to 10 men, but ultimately we’ve not troubled David De Gea.”
