Sean Dyche is backing his Clarets to keep pushing for new heights after maintaining their stunning start to the season.
A 1-0 win at Southampton last Saturday gave Burnley a third away success of the campaign and lifted them to seventh in the Premier League – level on points with Liverpool in fifth.
With 19 points on the board already, Dyche’s side has given the Clarets a best top-flight start since the 1973/74 campaign, when Jimmy Adamson’s team won seven of their opening 11 games on the way to finishing sixth in the old First Division.
And Dyche believes his players are still progressing as a unit as they head into the international break.
“There’s a great professionalism about this group and that’s to be marvelled at in my eyes,” the Burnley boss told Clarets Player HD after a fifth clean sheet in eight games and substitute Sam Vokes’ late goal earned victory at St Mary’s.
“It’s a very difficult thing in the Premier League. To come to these grounds and get the points away from home is very, very pleasing.
“Now, of course, it’s layering it. Are we adding layers, are we moving forward?
“I think we are. I think the collective group are.
“It’s maintaining that thirst and desire to keep pushing on and we definitely saw that again on Saturday.”
