BURNLEY'S Charlie Taylor believes he is currently in the form of his life for Burnley.

The left-back has made 33 appearances in the Premier League this season for Clarets, this is much improved on the 10 times he featured in last seasons campaign.

Taylor is amongst the favourites to be named Burnley's player of the year, he admits this is nice to hear.

“The Premier League is such a tough league and I’m learning and improving with every game," said Taylor.

"You come up against world class players so it’s a real tough test every week.

“I think the confidence comes with games and the more games you play the more confident you get. I’m loving playing every week.

“I’m playing at the highest level I’ve ever played at and I’d definitely agree (playing best football of career) but that comes with playing every week. Once you step up to the Premier League it takes time to get used to it but I feel I’ve got used to it now but I still need to improve and I want to improve and keep on going.

“There’s no easy game in the Premier League and every team seems to have a world class right winger so as a left back it is hard. It’s even outside the top six so for me, personally as a left back, there’s no easy game.

“The right wingers in this league are really top class but you want to test yourself against the best.

“You don’t get a slow right winger but I really enjoy testing myself against the best. Playing against better players you have to improve yourself.

"In this league you can’t switch off for a second and I’ve learned that because it is a huge step up from the Championship."

There's been a lot of talk about the left-back being named Burnley's player of the year - Taylor it's nice to hear this sort of praise.

“It’s nice to hear. I feel like I’ve had a good season and I'm improving with every game. Hopefully, long may that continue," added the 25-year-old.

Burnley travel to West London on Easter Monday to face a Chelsea side who are fighting for a Champions League spot for next season - Taylor hopes his side can repeat the win they got their last season.

“Chelsea away is a massive test, but we went there last season and won so there’s no reason why we can’t again next week.”
