Burnley goalkeeper Joe Hart believes their new formation is improving things and hopes they will soon be able to translate their new-found form into points

The former Manchester City star was unable to keep out Christian Eriksen’s injury-time goal as Burnley lost 1-0 to Tottenham at Wembley on Saturday.

The result left Sean Dyche’s side just two points above the relegation zone in the Premier League after their four defeat in five games.

But Hart is sure that Burnley’s new-look approach is beginning to pay off.

“The manager has made no secret of what we want to be as a team and what makes this club successful and the last two games are where we need to be,” Hart told the club website.

“There is a definite improvement. I joined knowing the defensive unit we had and we have not been solid so far this season. We have given chances away, but we have been better in the last two games.

“I think we took it (the new formation) on. The lads are saying this is a new thing for the team.

“We brought it in this week and the lads bought into it and we performed with it.

“The game is constantly evolving, and we can’t afford to be left behind, so it was important we embraced it and it shows what a good set of players we’ve got with a good attitude and we’re all in sync.”

Burnley will next take a trip to the Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal this Saturday.
