BURNLEY boss Sean Dyche believes his squad has what it takes to bounce back from their poor start to the Premier League campaign.

Dyche’s men find themselves in the drop zone after picking up three points from their opening seven fixtures.

The Clarets brought in several fresh faces over the summer including Ivory Coast winger Maxwel Cornet from Lyon.

And Dyche insists the squad is better equipped to handle the challenges of the top-flight this season.

“I look at the squad, it’s a strong squad,” said the Burnley boss. “We’ve added players who can affect that. We need them fit obviously.

“I think it’s a strong squad and I believe absolutely 100 percent in the players we’ve got. The performances are about a level of consistency.

“We’ve ironed out a few things but I didn’t think (Norwich) threatened us too much on that side of things but we’ve got to add quality going into their box.

“There were a lot of good signs from the defensive side of things.”

Summer signing Nathan Collins made Premier League debut over the weekend in place of the injured Ben Mee.

Dyche was pleased with the young defender's performance and is hopeful the club’s transfer business will pay off in the coming weeks and months.

“I think we limited them to very little,” he added. “I’m pleased for (Collins) and I’m pleased for that unit.

“We’ve just got to affect it at both ends, affect the attacking side of things, they’re the details we need to work on.

“Maxwel has shown strong signs of affecting things and that will be interesting when we can get him back fully fit. There’s more to come.”

The Clarets are back in action on Saturday, October 16 when they head to the Etihad to take on Manchester City (KO 3pm).
