'We won't underestimate Burnley' says Roberto Martinez

Roberto Martinez says Burnley are a better team than their Premier League position suggests.

The Lancastrians remain second from bottom of the table without a victory in eight games and on Sunday welcome the Toffees to Turf Moor.

However, Everton boss Martinez does not think four points and four goals reflect a proper return for their efforts.

Martinez said: "It's a huge challenge because I saw Burnley play a lot during last season and they are a really strong unit.

"I think they play as a team, they know each other really well, they've got really good energy.

“I think the start they had in the Premier League has already given them very good experiences and I know it's going to be really tough to face them on Sunday.

"It's difficult to describe the job that manager Sean Dyche has done. Going into a team that had no expectations to get promoted and all of a sudden they played a very dynamic and exciting brand of football that gave them promotion.

"They've been able to play eye to eye against any team that they've faced already. They got a good draw against Manchester United at home and Sunderland.

"You're going to get defeats in this league but they never stop competing. They got a really important point against Leicester showing that mentality and togetherness.

"We know we'll have to be at our best and we don't underestimate how difficult it's going to be."
