Burnley boss Sean Dyche dismisses links to Everton job as Clarets continue best-ever Premier League start

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is one of the favourites for the Everton post

Saturday, November 4, 2017

Burnley boss Sean Dyche dismissed speculation linking him to the vacant Everton job after his side continued their impressive start to the Premier League season.

Dyche is among the favourites to replace the sacked Ronald Koeman at Goodison Park and his stock rose further on Saturday as the Clarets snatched a 1-0 victory at Southampton.

Substitute Sam Vokes claimed the late winner against his hometown club to leave high-flying Burnley with 11 points from their opening six away games of the campaign.

"To be honest, the story's come around and it's out of my hands. It's a story that's away from me, although it's about me at the moment," said Dyche, who took over at Turf Moor in 2012.

"I just keep getting on with my business, as I have been doing for five years.

"I've had numerous times when I've been linked with situations and I just continue to see it clearly and that is to work hard at what I do.

"I continue to do that and the group that I work with quite obviously today have done that again, so the rest of it is noise that's beyond me.

"There's not a story there. My story is the Burnley story; five years here, another win today, which is a fantastic win, a clean sheet, Southampton away, a place that's been historically very, very tough for us to come and get results – both me as a manager and the club – and we've won 1-0, that's the story."
