The Clarets have not lost in the last seven games in the English Premier League, a first in the club’s history.

Burnley defeated Brighton and Hove Albion 3-1 on the weekend.

This has led the team into a seven-game run without any defeat, the first time in history as an English Premier League club.

And for manager Sean Dyche, his team has to keep focused and not to drop their guard.

“We’ve had to fight for everything we’ve got, and we continue to do so,” the Burnley boss told the club’s official website.

“Last year was different, everyone knows that, but historically – whether it’s fighting to get out of the Championship or fighting to stay in the Premier League or fighting to win.”

“We can’t take it for granted. It’s the Premier League. It’s really, really tough. We’ve had a great run and we have to continue that run,” he added.

“The players have deserved everything they’ve got. Now it’s safeguarding it, keeping the mentality, keeping with the energy and keeping with the belief in the side.”

“That’s going to be key going forward,” he explained.

Zola defends Chelsea’s treatment of Callum Hudson-Odoi

Assistant coach Gianfranco Zola refuted suggestions that Callum Hudson-Odoi is not getting enough opportunities at Chelsea.

“We lost two important players in Robbie and Johann.”

“That’s tough, but the group said ‘right, let’s get on with it’ because they believe in each other,” he continued.

“I admire the players for that; ‘No excuses, we’re a group, let’s get on with it’ and that’s a powerful thing and they delivered again, Jeff playing out of position and excellent again and young Dwight.”

“There aren’t many 19-year-olds rolling around the Premier League and not many in the fight scene and he’s handling himself very well. I’m really enjoying what he’s doing,” he concluded.
