Clarets make slow start

Dyche's side are set to be in for another season of struggle after only picking up four points from their opening nine matches.

Their last league match was a 2-2 draw against Southampton. with summer singing Maxwel Cornet scoring both goals.

However, they let a 1-0 lead slip and had to rely on the ex-Lyon winger to get the leveller in the second half, while they were also dumped out of the Carabao Cup in round four by Tottenham at Turf Moor on Wednesday.

Burnley have been in the Premier League since 2016 and there are fears on the outside that their lack of spending power is finally catching up with them.

However, despite admitting there is a real need to start picking wins up, the Clarets chief is refusing to get carried away by their winless start.

Dyche in bullish mood

"Our players believe in the performance levels and that is a good start," he stated. "We are not naive, we have to turn that into wins.

"Of course you have concerns and thoughts, but I don't think panic is a word for football management."

Dyche confirmed there are no new major problems ahead of Saturday's game with Dale Stephens the only long-term absentee.
