Burnley boss Dyche impressed by Swansea turnaround: 9 games ago they couldn’t do that


Burnley boss Sean Dyche was left frustrated in defeat to Burnley.

Ki Sung-yueng struck the winner late on as Swansea continued their resurgence under Carlos Carvalhal by beating out-of-form Burnley 1-0.

Dyche who will take his entire squad away for some warm-weather training next week, said: “I don’t think we were effective enough today and they just about edged it on the performance.

“The margins are fine between a performance that can win and one that doesn’t and they (Swansea) are a good advert for that.

“This is a side that, nine games ago, had nowhere near that endeavour, energy, workload and will to win that game.

“The new manager comes in and suddenly all of that comes together and the crowd are right behind them now – but that’s football!

“We came here to a side with a bit of energy about them. I don’t think that had too much to do with the game overall because it was a tight game with nothing in it really, before they got on the right side of those margins.

“We’ve found that lately, partly due to our own doing at times. I didn’t think we were nearly as good today as we have been, and although we created some chances we are a bit huff and puff at the minute.

“We have got a lot of injuries and it’s just about taking its toll now. I think the lads have done well, but it is taking its toll, so the next two weeks will be important, to see if we can get some of them back.”
