Burnley boss Sean Dyche admits they need to start climbing the table.

The Clarets face Manchester City on Saturday.

Dyche said, "It's not a cause for concern, it's a cause for reality, we've been through this before and it's tough.

"There's expectation and demands on yourself for delivering. I think we are generally playing well, it's not reflecting in the league but I think that's something positive to take into the future. Sometimes it's down to a lucky chance and a bit of fate but that hasn't gone our way yet.

"It's a very tough league. All that needs to change is that we need to stop putting the ball in one end of the net and get it into the other instead.

"We haven't taken our chances in some games, or seen games off when we had the ability too. It's about building on that and working on an all-round performance."

He added: "There's been a few knocks over the international break but Maxwel has come through fine today so we are expecting him in training and he should be available.

"Ben Mee has tested positive for Coronavirus, he's fine but he has to go through the protocols before he comes back in.

"It's important we keep players fit. I've said numerous times that I've been pleased with the teams performance levels but we've got to make sure we keep as many players fit as possible, to give us that adaptation to the game."
