We can take many positives into the Chelsea game
Burnley come up against Mauricio Pochettino for the first time as Chelsea boss tomorrow although we’ve crossed paths with him before when he was in charge of first Southampton and then Spurs.
His only game against Burnley when at Southampton was in the FA Cup down at St. Mary’s but he brought his Spurs team to Turf Moor four times, winning two of them and losing once in the 2018/19 season.
“After two victories it is important to keep thinking in the same way and improave. We were losing games and not getting what we deserve. The most important thing is the journey and we know very well that we need to keep improving.”
Vincent Kompany got his first win as a Premier League manager at Luton last Tuesday and he said at yesterday’s press conference: “I can’t deny it must be a sense of relief for a lot of the players, especially the ones who had never won in the Premier League.
“I think for us now it’s reminding ourselves we move on. We’ve got Chelsea soon and that’s obviously a key game for us back at home. I believe the team had confidence before Luton but there’s no doubt in my mind we can take many positives from that game into the Chelsea game on Saturday.”
It’s Chelsea now and Kompany said of them: “I’ve had the chance to put a little bit more work into it and they’re a talented side, really talented. The first question that pops up into my mind is how unlucky they’ve been really.
“I get it, it’s always the case with big clubs, you always have the pressure to get results all of the time but when I look at their games and what they’re doing, I see a very good side with very good players. It will happen for them at some point no doubt, just hopefully not at Turf Moor.”
He quickly dismissed the questions on potentially moving out of the bottom three. “I can’t say I spend much time looking at the league,” he said. “I look at the fixtures for sure, but I recognised our first eight games were against teams like Chelsea. We’ve got four points from six against Forest and Luton which were the only games against teams where we had to get results.
“It would be nice now to look at these types of games and get some results. With the fixtures coming up, we’ve got more of the types of games like we had against Forest and Luton where we actually had a chance before the ball was kicked.”Follow UpTheClarets:
