It was a losing start for the Clarets as Brighton boss Graham Potter continued his unbeaten run against us which has now stretched to five games, but he had to watch his team come from behind to win this one.

He said: “We got off to a nightmare start, the last thing you want to do when you are the away team. We made it difficult for ourselves and then Burnley did what they do better than what we did in the first half.

“We got a bit of luck which you need if you are going to take points in the Premier League away from home. You need some luck, which we had.

“It was important to be 1-0 at half time because we can regroup and then I thought the second half performance was a lot better. We were more like ourselves, able to control things a little bit better, attack better and to score two good goals was great for us so I’m delighted to get three points.”

Sean Dyche saw the opposite, a good first half performance and then a second half that was not so good. “It’s the first game, there are a lot of good things about the performance, but we’ve got to tidy up on the details,” he said.

“There was a lot of good in the first half and that clinical edge is important. We have found that over the last couple of years. We’re still striving to take those chances and to add that moment of true quality. We have found it, it’s how regularly we can find it.”

He added: “We created a lot of good chances today and we have in other games, although we know it’s the hardest thing in the game scoring goals. We didn’t do it today as many times as we would like. It’s good that we are making chances, but we’ve got to take them. You can’t always defend things out and we just got a little bit sloppy with the two goals, something we don’t normally do.

“We created enough chances to certainly get our noses in front, which we were, and possibly further, which you have to do in the Premier League because it’s never easy. We come away disappointed.”
