Soccer: Burnley must start afresh after break, says Dyche

(Reuters) - After three defeats and a draw to start the Premier League campaign, Burnley will use the international break to “reboot and restart” their season and will not get too despondent by their recent form, manager Sean Dyche has said.

Sunday’s 2-0 defeat to Manchester United left the Lancashire club second from bottom and Dyche said it was a tough ask for Burnley to try to bridge that gap to the top sides.

“We know we are not in Manchester United’s league and it is a massive challenge for clubs like ours to get close to them guys,” Dyche told the club’s website, adding that the players had to ignore criticism.

“We can speak to them about that, but when you are good you are never that good and when you are bad you are never that bad, and we have to bear that in mind.”

Burnley, who finished seventh last season, return to league action with a trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sept. 16.
