Burnley news: A Premier League assessment of Sean Dyche’s men after eleven games
Burnley players and fans are hopeful Dyche's head does not get turned elsewhere
Thursday, November 9, 2017
Burnley's stunning 3-2 win against reigning champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on the opening day of the season sent shockwaves around the Premier League, and the Clarets have carried on their great momentum since.
They have taken points off Tottenham, Liverpool and Everton on the road which has put Sean Dyche's side in a healthy seventh spot.
League position: 7th (19 points)
Best game: Chelsea 2-3 Burnley
Worst game: Manchester City 3-0 Burnley
Best player: Ben Mee
None of the players have particularly stood out as Burnley's success has been a result of their playing style of everyone working together to stifle the opposition being executed perfectly.
Burnley are a team that builds from the back and Mee has led the defence effectively in their successful season, so wins the prize as best player.
The Lancashire club's main concern should be whether they can hold on to Sean Dyche, who's reportedly wanted by Everton. If Dyche stays however, this could be a special season for Burnley.
