Burnley boss Sean Dyche: 4 minutes of madness

Burnley boss Sean Dyche admits they struggled to live with Leicester City for Saturday's 3-0 reverse.

Burnley have won just once in the league this season as their return to the top flight stutters, although they should have opened the scoring when Steven Defour headed straight at Ron-Robert Zieler.

They offered little else going forward and Dyche knows the Clarets paid the price for sloppy defending.

He said: "Unfortunately it was four minutes of madness, two minutes before and two minutes after half-time. After that they are a good side and they proved that.

"When you go 2-0 down and you're playing the Premier League champions, it's not impossible but it's improbable that you come back from that. They get a bit more confident and their tails get up.

"You get punished for a lot of things at this level. The hardest challenge for me is trying to win games but also develop the players as well because there's not many who have played an awful lot of Premier League football."
