Sean Dyche believes Burnley’s trio of top flight performances prove they can cut it in the Premier League.
The Clarets pick up from the international break buoyed by the hard-earned point earned against Manchester United.
That followed encouraging displays against Chelsea on the opening weekend and again at current league leaders Swansea a week later.
And ahead of the trip to Crystal Palace, who sit just above Burnley in the embryonic Premier League table, Dyche insists more of the same will earn his side a reward.
He said: “Things have improved quickly across the board here. The training pitches, analysis, sports science and the ground, but also the players.
“We think they have developed with us under our time here and we have new players who we want to take further, but the objective is always the same.
“It’s all geared towards winning; make no mistake.
“The outcome I am looking for is to improve the environment in order for the players to improve in order to win.
“I believe in performances and pushing that level because if you get that right results come.
“In the first three league games I felt we’ve given good performances and ultimately that will reap rewards and we’ll continue to believe that.
“There has been no lack of tactical understanding, the framework of the team has been good and the energy and physicality of the players has been outstanding.
“There have been moments of real quality to our play and with a scratch of luck here and there you score a goal or two. But that will come our way.”
Palace and Burnley go into the Selhurst Park clash both looking for that first victory of the campaign.
And following a topsy-turvy top-flight campaign last season, which saw the Eagles lose half of their 38 games but finish in the top half, Dyche insists their journey offers belief to all newly-promoted teams.
He said: “Palace did an excellent job last year and finished 11th in the end. They gave an excellent account of themselves and I’m sure they will have learned from that.
“There are different ways of achieving. They showed that and our journey is just beginning. We are a club in progress and moving forwards, so we go into the game open-minded and raring to go.”
