Burnley manager Dyche defends Hendrick

Burnley manager Sean Dyche has defended the form of midfielder Jeff Hendrick.

The Republic of Ireland international was criticised by sections of the Burnley support for his performance against Manchester United on Saturday.

"I don't think so," said Dyche when he asked about if the criticism of Hendrick was fair.

"He's been a massive part of us turning around last season, he came in and played wide and did a great job for us.

"One loose shot when he could have passed, and people start asking questions, but overall the crowd know the work he does, and certainly the players do."
