Burnley boss Sean Dyche is convinced his players have the right mental attitude to succeed but must eliminate costly errors.
The Clarets were beaten 4-2 by Liverpool on Sunday in a bad weekend for their survival hopes due to Cardiff, Brighton, and Southampton all winning.
Defensive errors, particularly for Liverpool’s first and second goals, allowed Jurgen Klopp’s men to steal a march on Burnley, and even Johann Berg Gudmundsson’s late goal couldn’t inspire them as they conceded a fourth to lose their third consecutive game.
Dyche remains confident that his side have the character to escape from relegation trouble but says they are currently making too many errors.
“We have got to be realistic, there were some big results for other teams yesterday. But we’ve had our own,” the manager told reporters.
“The bigger picture was we had one point after five games in the Premier League – we were bottom. We had 12 points at 19.
“If you’d have said to me at 19 that we’d be on 30 points and have the run we’ve had, I would have absolutely ripped your hands off.
“We’ve come a long way and we continue to progress and the mentality here is right but you can’t make those mistakes.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
