Burnley: Sean Dyche confident first Premier League win will come

Callum Chambers celebrates scoring
Burnley's 3-0 loss at Arsenal was their sixth league defeat of the season

Burnley manager Sean Dyche believes their first Premier League win will arrive in the coming weeks.

The Clarets sit bottom of the table after having drawn four and losing six of their opening 10 league games.

After promotion from the Championship last season, Dyche's side are yet to win this term and were knocked out of the League Cup by Sheffield Wednesday.

"The win will come. It's when and how many you get after that," Dyche told BBC Radio Lancashire.

"There seems to be this mythical talk of 'if you get that one win'. The fact is, if you get one, you need another, then you need another and another and another."

The Premier League's worst ever teams
2007-08 - Derby - 11 points
2005-06 - Sunderland - 15 points
2009-10 - Portsmouth - 19* points (*Nine point administration deduction)
2002-03 - Sunderland - 19 points
1999-2000 - Watford - 24 points
2011-12 - Wolves - 25 points
2012-13 - QPR - 25 points

Burnley have kept faith with the majority of the squad that secured second place in the Championship behind Leicester last term, spending an estimated £7m on new players.

Undisclosed fees were spent on players such as George Boyd, Michael Kightly and Lukas Jutkiewicz, while others such as Matt Taylor and Steven Reid arrived on free transfers.

With a quarter of the Premier League season gone, the three teams that won promotion last season - Burnley, QPR and Leicester - occupy the three relegation places.

"No one likes losing and I've certainly made it quite clear my feelings about winning, and we showed that last season," added Dyche.

"The players are stretched and in their highest state of learning, including myself, because it doesn't get any higher learning for a club like Burnley at moment."
