Johann Berg Gudmundsson insists Burnley can stay up

Johann Berg Gudmundsson insists Burnley are good enough to beat the drop this season.

The Iceland international has seen enough from his new teammates in the first five top flight games of the season to suggest the Clarets can survive, adding that he believes Burnley 'belong' at the highest level.

“You can look at it as pressure but also enjoy being in the Premier League and try and not play under and feel pressure," he told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph. “Most people don't expect much from Burnley but we know what we're about, our aim is to stay in the league and I'm confident we can do that.

“The season is young, we've only played five games, so there's a lot of games left but we've shown we belong in this league and our main goal is staying up. There's a lot of quality in this team and I've no worries."
