Burnley boss Dyche proud after taking point off champions

Burnley boss Sean Dyche was delighted with their 2-2 draw at Manchester City.

The Clarets have shown their fighting qualities in recent weeks and manager Dyche was pleased with their attitude throughout.

He said: "We went in at half-time intact in terms of how we were playing. I reminded the players of that and we put down a marker by getting the first goal and building on top of that.

"Then not only getting the goal so early but the relentless nature of the performance after that, I thought the quality was high, I thought the endeavour was high, I though the organisation was high. I was very pleased with everything.

"I keep reading about struggling Burnley. But I do know what the expectation was - that we had no chance at all. So I can't work out why I keep reading about struggling Burnley, because we're not struggling.

"I am aware of the league table but when look at how team is performing, we're not actually struggling, we're actually playing really well. I'm very intrigued to know where the journey is going."
