Premier League: Sean Dyche dented but not broken by Burnley's winless run

Sean Dyche insists Burnley are fully motivated ahead of their “fantastic challenge” of facing Arsenal at the Emirates on Saturday.

Dyche, who celebrated two years in charge of the Clarets on Thursday, needs no reminding that Burnley are the only club in the top four tiers of English football without a victory.

"Whether it hurts or not is irrelevant," he said. "The fact is it's a fact. What it does is gives you the added motivation to get wins.

"The only thing I ever guaranteed when I came here was that I'd have a group of motivated people giving everything they can, and that's exactly what we've still got.

"Now we've got to give even more, because that's what you've got to do to win matches in the Premier League.

"I'm used to winning and this group's used to winning, so that's been something we have to get our head around and allow the players the freedom to play to move forward.

"I've been down this road before. I've had a spell here when we didn't win games, I've been at Watford when we didn't win games.

"It's very rare that managers have it comfortable for year after year. Even Arsene Wenger was questioned after the first game last season.

"I'm learning plenty from it, that's for sure. It affects me in that my instinct is to win, and it has been since I was a little kid. That's the bit that dents you, but it doesn't break you.

"It's not about proving anyone wrong, it's about proving ourselves right.

"It's another fantastic challenge, particularly away from home. Arsenal have changed massively over the years to what they are now from when I was playing, they're a completely different animal and recognised in a worldwide market.

"We've had some huge clubs already, mainly at home, and this is one of the super powers away from home."
