Burnley midfielder Jack Cork: We face Chelsea in right form

Burnley midfielder Jack Cork is aiming to upset former club Chelsea tonight.

Three straight wins have put safety within touching distance ahead of the trip to Chelsea.

Cork said: “We looked at the fixtures at the start of the season, knowing that we needed to have enough points going into the last four games so that we could hopefully enjoy them.

“We have got ourselves into that position now – although we're not mathematically safe – where we can go into these games knowing the result may not be the be-all and end-all and we can go to places like Chelsea, and play against Manchester City, Everton and Arsenal, and try and get a result against some good teams.

“There's no better environment to enjoy these games than the one we're in at the minute off the back of three wins and if you end up getting a few results in these games, it ends up being a pretty good season."
