Burnley defender Ben Mee warns Man Utd: We deserve to be taken seriously

Burnley defender Ben Mee has fired a warning at Manchester United's stars ahead of today's meeting at Turf Moor.

The Clarets have collected only one point from winnable opening games against Southampton, Watford and Fulham and been knocked out of the Europa League by Olympiacos.

But with Jose Mourinho's big-hitters at Turf Moor on Sunday, Mee promises: "We want to get in teams' faces and make life uncomfortable for them when we are at home.

"We deserve to be taken seriously. Maybe in the past, they took it a bit lightly but this is a tough place to come.

"United are under a lot of pressure which could work in our favour but they do have a lot of fantastic players."
