“Burnley is a really difficult place to go,” he said in his pre-match interview. “It’s important to have that experience on the field, and to have lots of physicality as well to face the challenge today.
“The guys had a really good couple of days of training, and [Odsonne] Edouard had a couple of injuries this week, so we have a team on the field today who know what to expect here.
“[Eze] has been working really hard, and he’s very excited to be back with the team. He’s been doing well in training.”
Vieira expressed a desire to build on the positive momentum generated by recent results, but said there is still plenty of work to be done.
“When you have a positive result, it always helps to have a happy camp,” he explained. “Saying that, we know we still need to improve parts of the game.
“We have some tough games where we managed to get a result, and there’s still a lot to come from the team.
“The challenge is to try and improve every day and in every game, and try to challenge in the Premier League.”
