SEAN Dyche insisted it was all about the points on the board rather than any landmark victories after Burnley stunned Liverpool at Anfield.

The Clarets boss saw Ashley Barnes’ 83rd-minute penalty hand his side a 1-0 victory and a first victory on the red part of Merseyside since 1974.

The result also saw Burnley end Liverpool’s near four-year unbeaten home Premier League record but more crucially for Dyche, it moved his side seven clear of the bottom three on 19 points.

“I think the last one is most important, to gain the points we have done after a really tricky start and get back to winning games I am really pleased with that side of things,” he said.

“Physically we are always thought of of being strong and I think we were, we were strong in the way we held our team shape.

“We don’t work with the ball as much as other teams, particularly at these type of grounds, so you have to work well as a team without the ball.

“The main thing which is pleasing is the mentality, we did keep probing, we did keep asking questions.

“We do believe in the fact we can create and I think Barnesy was excellent the way he turned in the box – and it is a penalty.

“If we were due one it is a good place to get one.”
