While his side may have finished 17th last season, there was still an awful lot of merit to be taken from recovering from a situation that saw them pick up just two points from their opening seven matches.

Dyche is the first to point out that securing Premier League status may not be as eye-catching an achievement as some of his previous successes with the Clarets, but it’s certainly a success nonetheless.

Speaking recently, he said: “There are a lot of good times to be had, if you find some form of success.

“Success for us this season was quite obviously to stay in the Premier League.

“Other seasons it has been finishing a lot higher, with a bigger points tally.

“It’s an interesting, tough, demanding job – very demanding now with the media, social media and the fans and all that, but you wouldn’t be in it if you didn’t find a love for it.

“I view it as a massive success, arguably my best season, because I know the truth and demands of it.

“The staff and players have been excellent, and if you look, two points from seven games doesn’t always end in good news, trust me.

“For me individually, probably my biggest achievement.

“It doesn’t seem like that from the outside – we got into Europe and things like that – but I know the truth of what I’ve had to manage, and it’s been a tough season.”
