MATT Lowton insists Burnley will show no fear as they seek to do the double over champions Chelsea.

The Clarets recorded a 3-2 win at Stamford Bridge on the opening day in what was a sign of things to come this season, with Burnley comfortable in seventh place and only two points behind Arsenal in sixth.

Chelsea's hold on the title they won at a canter last season has already been relinquished and Antonio Conte's side may have one eye on Sunday's FA Cup semi-final against Southampton at Wembley.

That could give the Clarets the ideal chance to do the double, and they will be looking to record a home win over the defending champions for their fourth Premier League season in a row.

"That would be another achievement for us this season," Lowton said of the prospect of the double.

"We've got a great chance after winning five games in a row. Confidence is high and we'll go in to the game looking to win again.

"We're not going in to games fearing the worst, we're going in there looking for the best outcome and it's proving good for us at the moment.

"That's how we've worked all season and it has helped to push us in to this position."

Lowton is hoping the prospect of playing under lights at Turf Moor will help inspire the Clarets to a sixth win in succession and move them to the brink of securing a top-seven finish.

This will be just the third night game in the Premier League at Turf Moor this season and Burnley will be hoping for a third win after beating Newcastle United and Stoke City under the lights so far.

"There's something about playing at Turf Moor under the lights," said Lowton.

"It's a difficult place to come at any time but we've had some great moments at night since I've been here.

"We know how good Chelsea are but I'm sure they won't be relishing coming here after we've won five in a row. We're looking forward to it."

England boss Gareth Southgate was in attendance last weekend for Burnley's win over Leicester City and the Three Lions chief has been a regular in the Turf Moor directors' box this season.

Several Clarets are still hoping to secure a place in the 23-man squad for the World Cup in Russia and Lowton said of Southgate: "I think he's taking note.

"When you look at the table and see Burnley in seventh, pushing for sixth, there have got to be a lot of lads in the team that are doing something right.

"Obviously Popey and Tarky earned call ups, Corky earlier in the year. There's a big tournament in the summer so he's obviously making sure that he's got everybody that deserves a place."
