Coyle: Burnley learning how ruthless Premiership is

Burnley boss Owen Coyle admits they're learning quickly that concentration lapses are a killer in the Premier League.

The Clarets have beaten the best, but also have suffered against teams they should have defeated and Coyle admits: "It's certainly a competitive league, there is no doubt about it, although I can't really say if it is more competitive than in recent seasons as its our first year in it.

"What I do know is that it is packed with quality, pace and power and if you are not at the top of your game, you will be punished.

"We have found that out a couple of times on our travels, even when we have not played badly, but have switched off at big times and given possession away cheaply. That quality then puts you to the sword."
