Burnley boss Sean Dyche delighted with his three England contenders

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is pleased with the form of his three England contenders.

Dyche hopes his side can build on that impressive run against an out-of-sorts Tottenham heading north on the back of four straight defeats in all competitions.

He said: “I want more clean sheets because that's a sign you're certainly doing the defensive side well.

“That triangle of two centre halves and a goalkeeper (Pope, James Tarkowski and Ben Mee) - I think they're all playing well.

“They've a good connection, but I think the defensive unit has a good connection no matter who plays.

“Of course, if you get a clean sheet you get points, at least one and it's nice to know that went we don't do as well with the attacking side of the game we've still got that base to build from."
