SEAN Dyche hailed a fine display from his Burnley side as they did everything but score in their goalless draw with Arsenal on Sunday.

The Clarets dominated periods of the game and saw a late Jay Rodriguez chance hit the underside of the crossbar and bounce down onto the line.

The hosts ended a run of 11 straight defeat in all competitions against the Gunners but will feel they should have had more to show for their efforts.

“I agree with that,” said Dyche, when asked if it was his side’s best all-round display of the season.

“In the balance of the game we defended well as you have to of course because it is the Premier League.

“The tactical set-up I was pleased with and how we delivered that. We were effective with the ball and asked enough questions by varying the play which I like and I like mixed football.

“I like to ask as many questions of the opposition as we can and I thought we did that. The only thing missing was a goal.”

There were some mixed emotions, but the Burnley boss looked at the bigger picture after another positive display following the wins over Leicester City and Manchester United

 “I think when you play like that against a good side like they are then of course you come away thinking was that the one we should have won,” said Dyche, his side 11th in the Premier League table.

“But in balance to that it is another clean sheet, another good performance and after a tough run to get seven from the three games is a very good marker.

“It shows the players are ready for the challenge and that is important. The performance today was a very strong one.”
