Burnley captain Ben Mee insists the club’s worst start to start to a top-flight season is not causing panic at Turf Moor.

The winless Clarets have taken just two points from their opening seven Premier League games following Friday’s evening’s dour 0-0 draw at Brighton.

Defender Mee returned from a 15-game injury absence in East Sussex to help Sean Dyche’s side register only a second clean sheet of the campaign.

The 31-year-old, who had been sidelined by a thigh muscle tear, believes Burnley’s squad contains sufficient experience and belief to overcome their current predicament.

“It was good to be back and play the full game, but it’s all about the team and how we are going to go about things,” he told the club website.

“There is a long way to go, a lot of games to come and I’m excited to get involved.

“We need to improve our position, no doubt about it, and pick up points, but we’ve been in situations like this before and the togetherness of the squad is always there and the belief is there for sure.

“We’ve got plenty of work to do and there’s a long way to go but the confidence is coming back and we are looking forward to the challenge that’s ahead.

“There’s no panic. We know where we need to get to and what we need to work on.”
