Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope paid tribute to the team effort which has put him in position to win the Premier League’s Golden Glove award. Pope did not add to his 25 clean sheets against Liverpool but he was phenomenal in denying Salah, Mane and other Liverpool attackers to make sure that his team got a point out of the game.

Nick Pope said “It (winning the Golden Glove) would be something I would put next to my front door so I could tell everyone about it, But it really is a team effort, although it gets stuck next to my name a little bit. It is something that the boys have really, really helped me out with throughout the whole season and that is where we’ve built our character and attitude. We are a group that sticks together and wants to fight for each other and clean sheets are very much a big part of that. We are working hard, getting behind the ball and putting bodies on the line to keep the ball out of the net. That is something they have done for me since the first day I have been here. Without the lads working their socks off it doesn’t give me a chance, but they are there every minute working as hard as they can and it gives me confidence and really runs through the team.”
