Nick Pope Discusses Premier League Experience After Signing New Burnley Contract

Nick Pope has helped Burnley move up to sixth in the Premier League table, with the Clarets unbeaten since the second weekend of the Premier League season.

A clean sheet in his first PL game – a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace – was followed by a 1-1 draw at Liverpool, while he kept two more shut-outs against Huddersfield and Everton.

Nick Pope admits he is lucky to have been given the opportunity after Tom Heaton dislocated his shoulder.

“It’s been lucky on my part how it’s come about – a bit by default. But I’ve really enjoyed it since I’ve been in the team,” Pope told the Burnley website.

“The lads in front of me have been excellent and helped me a lot – especially the two centre-halves (James Tarkowski and Ben Mee).

“It’s been a good few weeks for me personally as well. Everyone at the club is happy we’ve made a good start and we’ve got to build on that now.”
