Luton boss Edwards: Kompany brilliant for Burnley

Luton Town boss Rob Edwards insists Burnley are favourites ahead of tonight's clash at Kenilworth Road.

The clash is being seen as an early relegation six pointer.

Edwards said, “They've started the season well, they've had really, really difficult games, how many promoted teams come up and have 60-odd percent possession against Manchester United?

"They're a really good team, they've improved from last year.

“They dominated the league last year, they were the best team by a country mile and they've improved, they've spent over 100 million which has been reported.

"Vincent's a brilliant manager, really good staff, I think they're in a false position at the moment.

“I know results-wise they might have had a difficult start, but trust me, they're a good team.

"What they did in the Championship was very, very impressive and they have improved.

"They've had City, United, Villa, Newcastle, so it's probably a little bit unfair to judge them on results alone, but their performances have been very good in all of them really, so I certainly think they can (stay up)."
