Burnley manager Sean Dyche believes his side is ‘coming back together’ despite their loss at the hands of Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham.

Burnley looked like the better team at times and had their chances to go ahead.

Striker Ashley Barnes also had a goal ruled out for offside.

Dyche’s team suffered from a brilliant goal by Heung-Min Son and Harry Kane as the duo linked up once again for Spurs.

Despite some late pressure, Burnley were unable to equalise.

Speaking to BBC Sport after the match, the manager said: “It was a very good performance, very thorough performance. We are getting players back to true match fitness, a lot of good things. If you perform like we did against West Brom and tonight enough times, you start looking after yourself.

“There has to be belief in what we are doing and the last two games in particular we have gone back to being what we can be like. We are looking for the balance at both ends.

“We got done a little bit by a soft goal tonight but we quelled a lot of good attacks tonight.

“Tough start to the season in all different ways. I thought the last two games it is beginning to show things coming back together. We have to keep that going.”

When asked about Spurs talisman Kane, Dyche said: “I think he has had better nights to be fair. He is a top player and top players do the right things and make the right decisions.”

The result leaves Burnley sitting in the bottom three after five games. However, they’ve had a tough start to the campaign.

Four of their games have been away from home so far, making it harder for the team to start a good run.

Their next match is an important one in the league against Chelsea on Saturday.
