Australian Four Four Two - - PREMIER LEAGUE -

This sea­son will be dif­fer­ent to last be­cause

we have in­creased ex­pec­ta­tions to con­tend with.

Our most un­der­rated player is

Stephen Ward. It’s no co­in­ci­dence that our Pre­mier League record is sig­nif­i­cantly poorer with­out him in the side.

The op­po­si­tion player I se­cretly ad­mire is

Kieran Trip­pier, partly due to his Clarets con­nec­tion, but mainly be­cause he’s be­come one of the best full-backs in Europe.

Fans of other clubs might not know that

de­fender Kevin Long is our long­est-serv­ing player, hav­ing ar­rived at the club in 2010. Since then, he has made just 50 Burn­ley ap­pear­ances in all com­pe­ti­tions.

Our pan­tomime vil­lain is

Neil Warnock. Al­ways.

Keep an eye out for

Ti­nashe Chak­wana, who fol­lowed up his top-scor­ing sea­son for Burn­ley’s un­der-18s in 2016-17 by do­ing it with the un­der-23s in 2017-18.

Save the date for

our trip to Crys­tal Palace on De­cem­ber 1. The fes­tive pe­riod looks tough, so head­ing into those fix­tures on the back of a vic­tory could be vi­tal.

This sea­son we will fin­ish

10th.

FFT asks: If Burn­ley do well in the early stages, how se­ri­ously should Sean Dy­che take the Europa League?

His ap­proach will be cal­cu­lated as ever. He won’t risk our Pre­mier League sta­tus for a semi-de­cent run on the con­ti­nent.
