Burnley back in the Premier League

Burnley are back in the Premier League after a 2-1 win over Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium.

The Clarets were relegated from the Premier League last season after finishing third from the bottom of the table.

The win means that Lyle Foster, who was not in match day squad against Middlesbrough, will play in the Premier League next season.

“We didn’t expect this. We wanted to experience it one day, but we had a different timing on it. Quicker is better sometimes,” Vincent Kompany told SkySports after the match.

“It hasn’t been easy. Days like today happen more than you think, we found a way it was not easy at all. But somehow this season we also ended up on the good end of the game.

There is a belief in the team, and it is still a team that can improve and that is the exciting part. They’re like kids, they’re celebrating like kids and that’s fun to see.”
