BURNLEY boss Sean Dyche felt his side warranted a point from their trip to Wembley after Chris Wood’s stoppage time strike secured a 1-1 draw with Spurs.

The result means Burnley have taken four points from their first two away games of the season against the sides that finished first and second in the Premier League last season with yesterday’s result following that splendid 3-2 victory over champions Chelsea on the opening day.

It is the first time since 1973 that Burnley have avoided defeat in their first two top flight away games and leaves them in the top half of the table heading into the international break.

And Dyche believes that is what his players deserved after a battling display against Mauricio Pochettino’s side as Burnley improved after the break to come away with a share of the spoils.

The Clarets boss hailed his side’s never say die attitude after the game.

“Our mentality is purely to keep going until the last breath,” he said. “We have done it many, many times in my time at Burnley. I believe in the players absolutely every time I put them out there to give everything they can until the last breath of the game and I thought we did that again.

“In the first half we wanted to get a tactical format that could certainly slow them down a bit. We know they can attack freely. They have got some very, very good players, they rotate their central midfielders into the full back slots. They get their full backs to play like wingers. They overload the centre forward area and they cause trouble for you.

“We didn’t have as much attacking threat but I was pleased with the defending side of things and the shape of the team

“We got to half time intact which was part of our thinking.

“In the second half we felt we wanted to affect it with changes. I was really. really pleased with it, the players coming on into the game.

“Unfortunately we affected it after they scored which was a mistake rather than amazing play.

“The way we grew into the second half and the belief and the endeavour of the side I thought was outstanding to go and get a point.”

And Dyche felt his side coped with the Wembley atmosphere. and the fuss surrounding Spurs’ form at their temporary home.

“Wherever you play Spurs they are a top side with some fantastic individuals within a top side.

“We are more interested in getting on with the game,” said the Clarets boss.

“We handled the occasion well because it is a fantastic stadium and an amazing place against a very good side.”
