Michel's respect for Burnley

Posted on 14 January 2015  - 09:00

Michel Vorm has been impressed with what he's seen of Burnley.


We take on the in-form Clarets - three defeats in their last 10 in the Premier League - in a third round replay in the FA Cup at White Hart Lane tonight (Wednesday, January 14, 8pm).

It will be our third match against the Lancashire side in the last three weeks.

Erik Lamela hit a cracking winner as we came out on top in the Premier League meeting at the Lane on December 20 before last week's 1-1 draw in the FA Cup, where we looked good at 1-0 up only for Sam Vokes to level on 74 minutes and force the replay.

“Burnley are a team, they work hard together,” added Michel.

“I think any team that goes 2-0 down at Manchester City and comes back to draw 2-2, that says it all really.

“Their biggest quality is that teamwork. They will fight until the end and with Danny Ings and Ashley Barnes up front, they have players who can make something happen out of nothing.

“They put all that effort in and wait for one or two half-chances and most of the time, they will convert one. That’s why we will have to concentrate against them for 90 minutes.”

The winners of the third round replay face Leicester at home in round four on the weekend of January 24/25.
