Burnley boss Sean Dyche believes his side have learned from their last season in the Premier League, however he thinks they will be written off before a ball has been kicked.
Burnley bounced back up to the top flight at the first time of asking by winning the Championship and will now face the likes of Manchester United. Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea next season.
And Dyche thinks that their experiences during their 2014/15 Premier League campaign will stand them in good stead for the new season.
“We’ll be written off immediately, we know that,” says Clarets boss Dyche.
“As champions they’ll say, ‘They won’t do this, they won’t do that’, the usual, but that’s part of the game we love.
“It’s all about opinion – the idea, the thought, discussion. It’s all part of what the game is.
“We believe in what we do here and we’ll look to affect things during the summer and into the pre-season and we’ll see where we go with it.”
