Ings, 21, has struck seven goals in his nine games so far this season, with Welsh international Vokes providing the perfect foil in a 4-4-2 formation that Dyche has no intention of dispensing with.

The Clarets boss revealed he and his staff have worked on Ings' movement since he arrived at Turf Moor, coaching that is starting to pay dividends for the in-form east Lancashire outfit.

"The matter of tactics nowadays is yardage," explained Dyche.

"People were saying last year we weren't playing a 4-4-2, we more or less were, it's just Ingsy is brighter, he's sharper, he's coming out of his number 10 spot and finding pockets in behind the defence as well as in front of them.

"That's the big work we've done with them since we've been here and his acceptance of that work and the enjoyment he's found within it is quite obvious, I think."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
