Ben Mee determined to end on a high

Defender Ben Mee admits he is excited for the rest of the season as Burnley look to set a new benchmark under Sean Dyche.

Dyche’s men proved too strong for West Ham on Saturday, with a 3-0 win at the London Stadium.

Chris Wood scored twice off the bench, while Ashley Barnes also found the net as Burnley remained in seventh and reached 43 points.

That tally is their highest ever in the Premier League and they still have eight games remaining to improve their final total.

The Clarets are just five points behind sixth-placed Arsenal and Mee insists they want to end the campaign on a high.

He told the club’s official website: “We struggled to get going first half, but it was a very good performance in the second half.

“We’ve been grinding out draws and picking up points but it’s really good to get back on the winning run away from home and it’s two wins on the bounce now.

“We are looking forward to the last eight games of the season. We’re excited about it and looking to get as many points as we can.

We are in decent form. It’s funny how it turns around. Rather than not having a win in 11, it’s one defeat in six.

“It’s really strange what happens. It’s a completely different outlook and we are really looking forward and we’re excited for these last few games and seeing where we can go and what we can achieve.

“We want to make it a really good season and one for the fans to really remember. That will be our aim.”
