has asked his players to move on from their FA Cup exit and focus on their next match against Brighton in the

Premier League


“We’ve got some massive games coming up now, every game is going to be big for us this year, certainly now,” Parker said.

“We’re halfway through the season now and like you said, this game, I hate the cliche of ‘let’s forget about this game, whack a line under it and move on’, but I think that’s the fact.

“(It was) 3-0 today and we were worthy of the result (against) Burnley. We huffed and puffed and were never really able to get in the game, now it’s full focus onto Brighton, West Brom, and the other games we have coming up in the league.”

When Parker was asked where any of the players brought in for the game could also feature in the upcoming league matches, he answered: “I thought Josh Onomah played well today.

“I thought after being out for some time he came in for QPR and I thought he was a real driver with his head down and worked hard in which was a tough game no doubt, a very difficult game.

“Frank Anguissa I also thought was very, very good but overall I don’t think there’s anyone who jumped out of the page at any of us really and that’s the way the game panned out really.”

Burnley goalscorer


said the squad was “buzzing” after they secured their place in the fifth round of the FA Cup after their shock league win over Liverpool.

“It’s another game to look forward to now,” the 31-year-old told the club website,” he said.

“The lads are buzzing we got through to keep the run going. I always think cup runs are amazing, everything about them, and especially the FA Cup.

“You respect both teams. Whoever gets through to the next round will deserve to be there so you respect them fully and it will be a tough game. But everyone loves a cup run, so hopefully, we do well.”
