Burnley boss Sean Dyche: Not frustrating, but annoying

Burnley boss Sean Dyche was left frustrated after their 1-0 defeat at home to Manchester United.

Anthony Martial's classy second half strike was the difference between the two sides on another day when the Clarets deserved more.

“I'm frustrated because I want to win and so do my players. But we are playing a clutch of top sides at the moment and we're so close. That's not just frustrating; it's annoying," said Dyche.

“We've had injuries and suspensions, and the thing that can be forgotten is the quality of opposition.

“We've still got Manchester City to come here, after playing Tottenham and Liverpool at home and Man U home and away. Add all that into the pot and they are the margins.

“We are a soft decision away from beating Manchester United at their place, a soft moment form taking a point against Liverpool when you have fought so hard, and then today.

“The margins are so tight and they've scored a fine goal today through a great finish, but you have to look at the performance levels and I was so, so pleased.

“We are definitely a team that has improved, in my opinion. You can't play like that as regularly as we have, against some of these sides, without seeing how far we've come.

“We are not just hanging into games. We are taking them on and I have been really pleased with that."
