DWIGHT McNeil says Burnley will focus on their wins over Manchester United and Leicester when Arsenal visit Turf Moor on Sunday.

The Clarets exited the FA Cup with defeat at home to Norwich last time out but will be keen that does not stall their momentum in the Premier League.

A come-from-behind win over Leicester ended a run of four straight league defeats and was backed up by a first victory at Old Trafford since 1962, a night McNeil ranks as among his best during his time at Burnley.

The 20-year-old former United youngster now hopes they can put in a similarly impressive performance against a Gunners side who may be three places above the Clarets in 10th but have the same points tally of 30 from 24 games.

"We'll focus on the two wins beforehand against Leicester City and Manchester United,” said McNeil.

“They were two really good performances and two really good results so we've got to take that belief and confidence into Sunday's game.

"The result (against Manchester United) has sunk in now. It's good, especially after what we've been through in those four games. It was good to come out with two top wins against two top sides.

"It was great to be a part of the experience. Last year we were winning 2-0 and they scored two late goals, which is what Manchester United can do, but this time we managed to keep hold of it and I thought we were the better team on the night.

"It's nice to have your name in history, but the main thing was to get the three points from a big game.

“That result was up there as one of the key moments for me and for the club as well. For me, personally, it was one of the best nights.”

Despite the league being a clear priority, McNeil insists there is some regret in the Clarets camp that they couldn’t get the better of the Canaries and extend their FA Cup stay into the fifth round.

“The league is the main focus, we want to stay in the Premier League, but an FA Cup run would also have been nice,” he said.

“It's disappointing because it's been a really good week for the lads with results, but we can't dwell on it too much.

"There is a bit of disappointment because we saw it as a good chance to go through and have a good cup run, but we can't dwell on it too much because we've got a big game coming up.

"I just tried to impact the game because it wasn't really going our way. Unfortunately they went through and we haven't.”
