Can EFL Cup help Burnley get back on track?
It’s been a tough start to the season for Burnley. The Clarets are in the bottom three and winless in the Premier League after nine games, and had to battle back from 2-1 down to salvage a draw at Southampton at the weekend after initially leading 1-0. What’s more, even one of their two EFL Cup wins this season came via penalties after a draw in normal time.
But Sean Dyche is optimistic about his side’s prospects moving forward and feels better days are just around the corner.
“I’m pleased once again with the performance level, but obviously disappointed with the mistakes,” he said after the Southampton match.
“Our mentality to try and win the game was quite obvious. We’re still searching for the win but we’ve got to maintain these performances and there were certainly good signs today.
“We’re aware of the situation and we are working hard with the players, and I don’t think we are very far from it (a win).”
Tottenham aren’t exactly firing on all cylinders themselves, losing their last two games across all competitions. Dyche might well see Espirito Santo’s side as ripe for the picking — especially if the Portuguese tactician rotates — and a big result in the cup might just be the antidote they need to kick-start things in the Premier League.
