Burnley central defender Andre Bikey is confident that his new club can defy the critics and avoid relegation from the Premier League this season.
The 24-year-old Cameroon international has settled in quickly at Turf Moor following his arrival from Reading, helping the Clarets record home wins over Everton and Manchester United.
Bikey told reporters: "This club had 33 years outside of the top-flight and coming into the Premier League means we are playing for everyone connected with the club.
"Right now, everything is still in our hands and we can still stay in the Premier League if we want.
"It's not going to be easy, but we are lucky to be playing in this league because it is the best in the world and we will not give it up lightly.
"I will give everything I can to stay in the Premier League."
