What they’re saying
Slaven Bilic, on facing Burnley: “It’s a big game for us. It’s a chance to get that first win and every game is a big challenge for us. We have gone up a level and we want to stay at that level for as long as possible. Every game we have to be more determined and more motivated than our opponent. That should be our advantage and the game against Burnley is a good opportunity for us knowing that we will have to match them in the things they are really good at. Directness, second balls and competitiveness.”
Sean Dyche, on James Tarkowski transfer rumors: “I didn’t feel he wasn’t fully focused. It’s tough for players — they have a lot of noise around them, even more so than ever, certainly way more than in my day. They’ve got media streams, social media, rumors, conjecture all going on all the time. So it’s more difficult for players now, I believe. But Tarky is a top pro. … People forget he had to wait a while to get into the team and he was out there every day doing it, and he’s still doing it now.”
