Dyche has overseen an impressive first half of the Premier League campaign at Turf Moor but is under no illusions about the challenge his side face.
"They still look like a high-quality group of players to me," Dyche said. "I was there recently when they had to dig in and get a win against a Brighton side that played very well.
"That is the mark of a good sign (when) it is not quite their day or the other team are playing well - they still come out with a (positive) result.
"The main thing I like about Jose Mourinho and the work he does with his players is they find different ways of winning.
"Man Utd, as much as the questions are coming in about their indifference, are still a very strong side. They are a very strong unit, very strong in talent and they certainly have a manager who understands the division."
