​​Dyche confident Burnley can turn season around

Burnley manager Sean Dyche believes his players will show another face once they return to action following the international break.

The Clarets have only one point from the opening four rounds and sit second from bottom of the league table.

Dyche is certain Europa League involvement has taken its toll, but also confident they will turn things around.

"I think we're finding our feet a little bit," Dyche said. "They've had their challenges these players, it's game 10 for us, with a squad, roughly, of about 17 at any given time.

"We were down to 16 on Thursday. That's a lot of football for anyone, in this early part of the season.

"We knew there was a challenge to it, but we spoke to the players about the positive side of playing in the Europa League, in it for the first time myself, managing and learning, the players as well.

"But it's still physically a task, there has been a lot of travelling, a lot of football.

"This two-week break gives us a chance to rest and work, find the balance, but certainly refresh ourselves for the challenge which is the Premier League."
