Burnley edges closer to Europa League qualification

Kasper Schmeichel of Leicester City is challenged by James Tarkowski of Burnley during the Foxes 1-0 victory in the reverse fixture at the King Power Stadium in December

It's impossible for there to be a negative. "Now it's open-minded and see how far we can go".

Dyche's opposite number Claude Puel was left to rue falling behind to goals from Chris Wood and Kevin Long inside nine minutes as Burnley made a whirlwind start.

Despite leaving Cork City to join Burnley in 2010, the defender had to patiently bide his time to establish himself as a fully-fledged member of the Clarets' first team squad as a number of injuries, managerial changes and loan spells away from Turf Moor disrupted his progress. I got on really well with the players, the staff, the owners are great as well.

"Credit to Leicester, the last half-an-hour if not more they were excellent".

It's also just the first time Leicester shipped two goals within the first 10 minutes of a Premier League game since August 2003 v Aston Villa.

"It's hard to accept but, I repeat, Burnley deserve it".

Leicester, who gave a full Premier League debut to 20-year-old midfielder Hamza Choudhury, simply could not deal with the energy and physicality of the Clarets, although they did not help themselves. I'm not going to go there, there's no point.

"Our story is still about getting as many points as we can get".

"I think so, yes", he said.

Puel admitted his side's hopes of European football are now hanging by a thread but was happy with the response to their poor start.

The Frenchman thinks it is an achievement Leicester have something to play for at this stage of the campaign given where they were when he arrived.

England manager Gareth Southgate was among the crowd and would again have been impressed by Pope, who saved from Vardy in the 62nd minute as Leicester created their first real opening of the second half and proved a safe pair of hands all afternoon.

"At the beginning we made things easy for the opposition. It was close but after the two goals it was surprising", he added. It was not a fair result.
