Burnley defender Bikey: Premiership big step up

Burnley defender Andre Bikey says the Premiership is a big step up from the Championship.

"The Championship is hard, because you have to be fit to play there, but the Premier League is more cultured and tactically better," he told the Lancashire Telegraph.

"It is quicker, it is sharper and games are very hard because you play against the best teams in the world.

"It is a challenge for me, playing in the Premier League. You want to prove you can play at the highest level.

"Liverpool and Chelsea are very good teams with world class players and playing against them isn't easy. But sometimes when you come up against teams like that losing is not so painful.

"You're not so angry because you know you've given everything to try to get a result there.

"The players have two legs like us, the difference is maybe they've got more experience.

"Hopefully we can win a lot of home games and try to stay in this division."
