Burnley defender Charlie Taylor says he can see no reason why his side cannot finish in the top half of the Premier League next season.

After a seventh-placed finish the previous season, the Lancashire-outfit struggled last term and skirted with relegation before a resurgence in the latter half of the campaign saw them finish 15th.

The Clarets’ season was hampered by their Europa League campaign but Taylor sees no reason why the side cannot push back into the top half next term.

‘I don’t see why we can’t push for the top half next season,’ said Taylor.

‘We’ve proved that in 2019, it’s credit to us, because there was massive pressure on at Christmas, it wasn’t easy, but we came through with flying colours.

‘It’s exciting to see what the summer brings, and if we can carry this on, then the top half is realistic.

‘The big six speak for themselves, they are in a different league, but outside that there’s no reason we can’t challenge to be the best again.’
