Burnley midfielder Steven Defour has admitted the team are starting to feel the pressure after dropping into the relegation battle.
A run of six games without a win has seen the Clarets slide to within a point of the bottom three and, despite manager Sean Dyche saying there is no panic in the camp, Defour admits the players are concerned.

The Clarets travel to fellow strugglers Crystal Palace this weekend and will be hoping to get back on track, but Defour admits it is a far cry from 12 months ago when they were flying high.
He told the Lancashire Telegraph: “Last year everything went for us and this year it’s not really going for us. “We have to step up even more like we did last year.
When the results aren’t going for us some start doubting, which isn’t a good sign. “Everybody is training really well and there’s a lot of quality but sometimes in a game it doesn’t always show. I think a lot can change if you score the first goal. It might ease things a little bit.”
