Kieran Trippier: 'Manchester United? No, there was never any contact'

How do you assess Burnley's start to the season? Has it been even more difficult than you expected?
It's obviously been a tough start but in the majority of games I think we've done well and coped with it, even if we haven't been getting the results. We've got a lot to learn but there's a long season ahead. Before we came here we knew it was going to be a tough season, but now we've got a bit of experience in the league, we're looking forward to the rest of it.
