Burnley manager Sean Dyche has said that he wants Burnley to refocus to get their momentum back this season. The Clarets won their FA Cup clash against Barnsley by 1-0 at Turf Moor to advance to the fourth round. However, Dyche’s men are having a hard time in the Premier League and are currently in the 13th position in the league table after 21 matches.
Speaking to the media, the English manager said, “I like the idea of the momentum, of course, but we’ve been in these competitions, we have been up and down and obviously this year more so with the Europa [League] as well, so I think we have adapted to the challenge. “It’s been tough, but you can’t guarantee that momentum remains purely because it’s literally game after game. There’s no guarantee on that. “We want to refocus on this game. It’s important. We want to keep that mentality and that winning mentality is a really important thing.”
He added, “It’s been difficult, it’s been tricky over the last few months. But I think the feel has remained the same and there’s been a good feel and a solid feel to the group in the mentality. But nothing reinforces it more than wins, of course, because that’s what footballers live for. They live to win games – that’s part of their lives – as do I as a manager, as do my staff and of course the fans as well. “Without any doubt, when you are winning, it does add that edge of confidence to what you are trying to do.”
