Dyche unhappy with United targets
Sean Dyche felt Burnley’s defence could have stopped Manchester United’s goals in their 2-0 Premier League win at Turf Moor.
Anthony Martial finished off a rapid break to open the scoring on Sunday, with United captain Wayne Rooney poking house a rebound to wrap up the points prior to the interval.
Burnley failed to record a shot on target for the first time at home this season but the manager was satisfied together with the mentality of his group, despite ruing the ambitions conceded.
“They are extremely robust, tactically, technically and with game expertise,” Dyche said. “We huffed and puffed and stuck at it.
“They scored two poor ambitions from our point of view, we have to produce a foul on the 1st one.
“We stuck at it. I’m pleased together with the mentality from the second half. They killed the game. They are a prime side. That is definitely the reality of playing some of the major sides. You can’t normally get above where you happen to be.”
A run of 1 win in their final 11 Premier League matches has left Burnley five points above the relegation zone but Dyche is refusing to set a target for Burnley in their last 4 games.
“Until the moment it really is all completed we will maintain fighting and see what we can get,” Dyche added.
“Who knows what [how quite a few points] we will want.”
