Reid backing Burnley to go down over Everton, Leeds

Former Everton captain Peter Reid wants to see Burnley be relegated.

Reid also played for Burnley, while he managed another relegation in Leeds.

"I'd love Leeds to stay in the Premier League but I want Everton to stay up slightly more. Well, a lot more. I've got to be honest," Reid told the Daily Mail.

"You know your own team are in trouble when you look at other people's results. On Wednesday, I was supporting Chelsea at Leeds, flicking over to see if Everton could score at Watford. I tell you, I've been all over the place, panicking.

"When Burnley were getting beat last weekend, I was texting Alastair Campbell [Tony Blair's former press secretary and avid Clarets fan].

"He invites me to matches and it's great to see a small town in the top division. But when it comes to keeping two of my old teams up, Burnley have to go. Sorry Alastair!"
