Charlie Taylor insists that Burnley fans believe they can pull off the great escape.
It follows the Clarets’ much-needed three-point victory over Brentford on Saturday, their first since before Christmas.

Not only that, but it closes the gap to safety to eight points with nine games left.

“It’s a huge win,” Taylor declared.
“We’ve had a number of fantastic performances recently and may not have had the results we deserved, but it’s nice to get three points.

“It’s never easy, especially in this league, but three points is huge for us and boosts confidence.

“We’ve gone two weeks without a game, and we’ve got nine big games left. We’re not stupid; we know we need more wins, but it’s done us a lot of good.”

Regardless of the bad performances, manager Vincent Kompany has continually maintained the confidence that survival is still possible.
That, Taylor claims, is a feeling shared by the Burnley squad.

When questioned if the players still believed, Taylor responded, “Yes, absolutely, and that comes from him. He’s a big believer. He instills it in us every day.

“Everyone still believes we can get out of this and turn things around.

“Every week, we work extremely hard on the training ground. People may not notice it, but we are doing everything we can – staff, players, and everyone in the club still believes we can come out of this.”

Burnley benefits from the fact that both Everton and Nottingham Forest are still facing potential point deductions.

If the consequences are carried out, the gap to safety is likely to be reduced.

While it does not guarantee survival, it gives Burnley a far better chance of retaining their Premier League position.

Taylor continued, “It could [change], but I think we’ve just got to control what we can control, which is winning on Saturdays and improving our position in the standings.

“We’ve got three points, which is huge for us.”
