Burnley defender Clark Carlisle is confident everyone will be up for Manchester United's visit to Turf Moor this week.

"Bring it on," said Carlisle, who was relegated with Watford in 2007. "It's going to be a very steep learning curve for us but we're not scared.

"We're relishing the challenge because this is where you want to be, plying your trade against the best players in the world. It's no good shirking these games when they come around thick and fast."
