Man Utd boss Mourinho: Burnley deserve to dream of Europe

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho says Burnley are capable of European qualification this season.

Ahead of today's game, Mourinho admits he has been impressed by Burnley's performances this term and believes they are likely to be among the clubs challenging for the top six at the end of the season.

"It's great [Burnley's form]. If survival was the objective, I think the objective is in the pocket, it's totally under control," said Mourinho to Sky Sports.

"If the objective is to finish top ten, they will do it. If the objective is to fight for European positions, they are there so they have the right to fight, so it'll be a difficult opponent."If you compare what they are doing with the initial objectives, it's a very good season."
