Sean Dyche: 'Burnley are still work in progress'

Sean Dyche: 'Burnley are still work in progress'

Here's some of what he had to say.

Chelsea have had to dig deeper for victories when facing mid table teams away from home this season and Burnley should be no different. But she was helpless as she had her boy in her arms and the ball was flying towards them but just then a man standing behind her sprung into action and put his hand out and punched the ball away from the little boy face.

"It's a fantastic achievement for them". It is these two top teams of this mini-league that go head to head this Sunday. We have studied them very well. "We don't know this type of game, the long ball is not easy to play here with Burnley".

"Whether we play before or the others play before us, the pressure is the same". If not them, who do you think will usurp the Blues?

"You have less pitch to cover and then there is a good atmosphere with the supporters and I think it's good".

"But it's important to think about ourselves and our game against Burnley".

The Blues' goal at Turf Moor was typical of the clinical counter-attacking play that has helped take Conte's side to the top of the table. We took only one point, and we must be a bit disappointed at this, for our mentality. "It is a pity but we tried to play football, to create chances and against a strong team".

"But there are many great rivals like Tottenham, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United".

Conte himself described Burnley's tactics as defensive, although the Italian, whose team lead by 10 points with 13 games left, emphasised that he did not mean it as a criticism. "It was a good experience". I see him every day and his commitment and behaviour. We'd had an intense week with three games in seven days.

Everything has been going so well for Chelsea that, having started their latest assignment so impressively, it came nearly as a jolt that they could not build on their early lead and increase the near-inevitability that it will not be long before the first publicity-ravenous bookmakers announce they are paying out early on the championship. Do you disagree? Let us know! "We must continue to work in this way, to fight, to try to win". A top player. He's in a level very high.

The hosts squandered a number of chances to take all three points but Dyche was pleased with a point and also the overall performance of his side. "Sometimes there is a technical choice".

"I wanted to give him a great applause of our fans", Conte said.

Two players whose careers were on the wane are more than likely to end up with Premier League winners' medals this season. "He hasn't a price now".
