Burnley boss Dyche warns rivals: 'We've got more strings to our bow'

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is proud of how his side have developed.

The Clarets have surprised everyone with their early season form. They've picked up points against Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham and Everton, which has left them in sixth place on the table.

And Dyche is sure his can add more to their repertoire over the season.

"I think we've got more strings to our bow. There have been moments in games where we've been more controlled," Dyche said of the start to the season.

"I mentioned against Huddersfield - in a tight game you don't want to go too far to win it when you could lose it. I thought we controlled aspects of that game when it needed that calmness, I thought we kept the ball at times, slowed it down.

"Steven Defour was terrific at that, he's got a good barometer for that, he's been around the block and knows when it needs a bit of calmness. Corky (Jack Cork) knows when to keep the ball and calm the game down.

"In other games, when we've had to play muck and nettles, get it forward, be robust, work hard, play from a shape, they're all the things you have to do over a season and I think we do it really well."
