Burnley goalkeeper Brian Jensen is refusing to give up hope that his side can stay up this season.

The Clarets are facing an uphill battle to avoid an immediate return to the Championship as they are four points adrift of safety with just three games remaining.

Burnley's fate could be decided this weekend if West Ham overcome Wigan on Saturday and then Brian Laws' side lose to Liverpool 24 hours later.

Jensen is hoping Liverpool could rest some of their top stars for the trip to Turf Moor as the game will come just 72 hours after their Europa League semi-final clash with Atletico Madrid.

"We can go down on Sunday if West Ham win against Wigan and we lose against Liverpool," Jensen told Onside.dk.

"We fight to the end. We know we must win on Sunday, but we also know that it will not be easy.

"We might hope that Liverpool rest a few players because they are thinking of the Europa League semi-finals.

"It will be difficult [to stay up], but mathematically it is still possible."

Jensen is determined to do his best to keep Burnley up as he describes the Premier League as the best in the world.

"It is the world's best league," noted Jensen. "You play in the best stadiums against some of the best players in the world.

"All great players want to play in the best league and we would of course be happy staying there."
