Ahead of Sunday’s visit of Spurs to Turf Moor, Clarets boss Sean Dyche retains his belief Burnley will stay in the Premier League.
Burnley seem to be changing people’s opinions, particularly after the win over Manchester City, having been written off from day one.
Dyche isn’t really interested whether the pundits are changing their minds or not: “I’ve never been one to worry about proving people wrong. It’s always about proving yourself right, how you conduct yourself, how you go about your business.
“We’ve got a clear way of working. We want to be successful and win games. Wins have been hard to come by, or certainly harder to come by, and it’s a big jump in quality.
“But I think slowly but surely we’re refocusing on what the job is, learning as we go and delivering good performances.
“I have total belief we will be in the Premier League.”
Burnley had a trip to Alicante last January to set them up for the second half of the season, and they had a training camp in Marbella last week, with Dyche hoping for a similar outcome: It was very pleasant. It was just about right. Good training weather, a change from the norm. Or certainly the recent norm here. A bit of sun on the players backs and a good training facility. Last year we found it gave the lads a change, and a change is almost as good a rest.
“We came back and we did the business by getting ourselves promoted. A different kind of challenge this time, but we want the same outcome which is to win games and be in the Premier League.”
