Burnley ace Boyd happy his work ethic now recognised

Burnley winger George Boyd is up for their clash with Liverpool.

Boyd has bought into Burnley's work ethic since arriving in a £3million move in the summer.

Last month it was revealed that he ran further than any other Premier League player in a single game this season, covering more than eight miles in Burnley's win at Stoke.

"It's something I've prided myself on throughout my career but I think it's more evident in this team because everyone works so hard," said Boyd.

"If you've been down in the lower leagues you don't want to go back there so you work even harder to stay at this level. Everyone in the squad is enjoying it and doesn't want it to stop.

"Our game is about pressing and getting in people's faces. We'll try to disrupt Liverpool and play our own game.

"They have spent so much money and we need to close the gap. If work-rate is the way to do that then so be it. We haven't got £30m to go and buy strikers so we work hard to make it an even playing field."
