Despite Burnley’s difficult start to the season, Vincent Kompany remains convinced that results will arrive shortly.
The Clarets have yet to win in the Premier League after taking just one point from their first six games.
Five of those games have been against teams currently in the top half of the standings, with the most recent one coming away to Newcastle United on Saturday, where they were defeated 2-0.
Despite Burnley’s difficult start to the season, Kompany remains confident his team is on the right track.
“We’re going to keep fighting for it in every single game. Look, it will come,” he said of the chase for their first win.
“We’ve not been far off with results. We had the Forest game that could have gone our way, we had the performance against United, we’ve been in games.
“For us if we keep doing that we will get results and we will be like everyone else down there. It won’t be easy, but we’ll get results as well.”
Burnley now have a priceless opportunity to claim their first three points of the season when they take on Luton Town at Kenilworth Road on Tuesday night.
The Hatters will be full of confidence, however, fresh from their first win at the weekend away to Everton.
“I look at Luton in the first three or four games and I look at Luton now and they’ve definitely improved. I look at ourselves and it’s the same for us,” Kompany said.
“Last year we had two tough games and I expect the same again.
“They have a really well-assembled squad.” I really admire how they’ve tackled it throughout the years, how they’ve formed a squad. There is a lot of consistency.
“The players they have can do exactly what the manager wants.” After being terminated at Watford, Rob Edwards’ achievement in getting them promoted is incredible.
“To us managers, lifting a trophy is considered a success. But success is typically defined by overachieving, and Luton is overachieving in every respect, demonstrating that they have good people and systems in place.”
