Burnley defender James Tarkowski: Expects return in front of empty stadiums

Burnley defender James Tarkowski expects the season to be played out in front of empty stadiums.

The Premier League are still discussing how to restart the season after the coronavirus suspension.

“We know the focus of the season is still there to be done," the England international told Clarets Player HD.

“We still need to perform when we get back. Everyone is still in shape and we are looking forward to being back and being back together.

“It looks like (behind closed doors) is the way it's going to go.

“We would all love to play in front of full stadiums every week but unfortunately that's probably not going to be the way.

“We know how tough Turf Moor is to come to because of the fans, not just because of the way we play but because of the fans as well.

“It's not going to be ideal, but if that's the way it works out best, it's something we have got to deal with and hopefully we can use it to our advantage as well."
