Burnley bottom of Premier League

Sean Dyche admitted his side ‘never got out of the blocks’ after the Clarets slipped to their first defeat in four games with a 4-0 loss at West Brom.

The Clarets fell behind on the 30th minute when Craig Dawson headed home a Chris Brunt corner and never truly recovered. Saido Berahino scored a brace and Graham Dorrans added gloss to the scoreline late on.

And boss Dyche was left to reflect on a disappointing afternoon in the Midlands.

Dyche said: “It's not a good afternoon that’s for sure, we never got out the blocks at all today, which is my main disappointment.

“Results can happen like today, particularly at this level of football and you want to perform.

“We have done so far this season, we’ve performed in a manner that means you can win games but today that didn’t happen.

“Apart from the set pieces I don’t think Tom had an awful lot to do. Don’t get me wrong we weren’t playing well but we managed to keep them at bay.

“I thought if we’d have got to half-time at 1-0 down we can re-shuffle and have an effect but 2-0 down is very different.

“They score the third and as we all know it’s climbing a mountain from there on in.

“Credit to West Brom because there has been a few question marks about them and they’ve turned it around quickly.

“They got that performance last week at Tottenham and a 1-0 win, there have been question marks here and we’ve got to respond here.

“If you get results then they can quickly build into more results.”
