Chelsea Win is Performance of the Week

Sean Dyche to receive League Managers' Association LG award to mark victory at Stamford Bridge

17 August 2017

The Clarets have won the League Managers' Association ‘LG Performance of the Week’ award for their opening-day victory at Chelsea.

A five-man panel, comprising LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson and former managers Sir Alex Ferguson, Joe Royle, Dave Bassett and Barry Fry, decided the 3-2 win over the champions at Stamford Bridge merited the prize.
 
Burnley manager Sean Dyche will receive a specially engraved trophy in recognition of the award, as well as a celebratory bottle of champagne courtesy of Tanners Wines.
 
First-half goal from Sam Vokes, two, and Stephen Ward gave the Clarets their first opening-day victory in the Premier League, as Chelsea lost on the first day of a season for the first time since 1998.
