Newcomers Burnley took a 2-0 win at Turf Moor against Watford on Monday after goals by Jeff Hendrick and Michael Keane.
Steven Defour stood for both assists in the game, first he provided the corner for Hendrick’s opening goal in the 38th minute, and then he provided the cross for Keane in the 50th minute. Burnley manager Sean Dyche was happy to have picked up the second league win of the season.
“It was really pleasing tonight, especially the manner and control of the performance, throughout the whole game,” Dyche told the club’s official website.
“We handled their threat really well and it’s very satisfying. We believe in the players here and I mentioned the flexibility we need, so it was a decision from me to go as we did.
“It was a decision from me following that result at Leicester. There were big parts of the game when I thought we were decent and we just didn’t look a threat in the final third.
“I felt we added to that tonight by getting into wider areas quicker and some of the deliveries were excellent.
“There was just a nice detail to the performance.
“I wanted this idea of focus and freedom and some of the passing and movement was excellent.
It was a controlled performance and at this level, that’s not easy to do, so I was pleased with that.”
Burnley sits in 13th place with seven points in six matches. They will welcome Arsenal to Turf Moor on Sunday.
