Sean Dyche has called on Burnley to show more fire when they get into the final third following Sunday’s loss to Watford. The Clarets should be ahead of their Premier League rivals in match fitness, having started their campaign early due to Europa League qualifying, but they have struggled to get things going in the final third.
Saturday’s defeat to Watford was Burnley’s sixth match of the season and they once again found it tough to cause issue in attack.
They have scored just twice in their last four outings – requiring extra time against Istanbul Basaksehir to get on the scoresheet – and Dyche admits they are lacking a killer instinct.
Dyche said: “We’ve got to have more fire to go and score a goal because we got in some top-class positions and dominated large parts of the play.
“Of course people want to score a goal but it’s (about) sprinting into the box, the intention that nothing is going to get in the way, that willingness and demand to arrive early and to read the play better.
“That moment…that little killer moment is what we’re still trying to find as a group.”
