Despite having more than 62 per cent of possession, the Cherries were not able to find their form at Turf Moor.
He told the Daily Echo: "There are no surprises in this division. You know what to expect and we were certainly well prepared for Burnley and the strengths they possess.
"For me, they are still a very effective team and can hurt you if you don't do the basics right, which we didn't.
"It was a 4-0, that was the result, but I think it was hard on us. People will look at the scoreline and get one idea of the game but I think it was far from that."
