PREMIER League pundit Jamie Carragher reckons Burnley look more dangerous going forward since Mike Jackson took interim charge.

The Clarets have picked up seven points from their last three matches since long-serving boss Sean Dyche’s departure.

They are now two points above 18th-placed Everton heading into the final stages of the season, despite having played an extra game than the Toffees.

Carragher still isn’t convinced by the club’s decision to part company with Dyche but says they are now playing with “a different type of style”.

"I was very critical of the change, along with a lot of people in the game," he told Sky Sports.

"At this moment it has worked for them but I do truly believe that if Sean Dyche was given the funds he maybe should have had, I don’t think Burnley will be in this position because we have seen that year in, year out.

"But there has been a change, not just in terms of results, but how they have gone about it.

"The actual aerial duels show they are trying to keep the ball on the floor and play a different type of style. We saw that with the goal.

"The big thing that stands out is that they actually look like they are going to score a goal. Under the new manager, every game they have looked a bigger threat in terms of goals.

"Someone like McNeil can make a big difference. He is the one player in the Burnley team, he has got that bit of class to make a clever pass and there was evidence of that at the weekend."

The Clarets are back in action on Saturday afternoon when they head to Vicarage Road to take on relegation rivals Watford (KO 3pm).
