Burnley’s key 16/17 Premier League fixtures

Burnley defied all odds again last season by bouncing straight back to Premier League as champions of the Championship.

Sean Dyche – The Ginger Mourinho – has created a brilliant team ethic at Burnley and will be looking to consolidate the Clarets as a top-flight club in his second crack at the Premier League.

Dyche has a return to Watford on the cards and he will be looking to show his previous employer exactly what they are missing out on.

Burnley will also be expecting the return of Eddie Howe, who’s time at the Clarets will be remembered as average, but will Dyche be able to get one over on the man who was at the helm previously to him?
