Burnley manager Sean Dyche was not happy with his side for conceding two goals that could have been stopped and also rued that chance they failed to take.

Connor Wickham and Jermain Defoe were the two players on the mark for Sunderland in this relatively easy win.

And it was a win that both sides could have done with as both teams fight to get away from the relegation zone, but Dyche said it could have been so different had they taken a chance that came their way before the goals.

He told reporters: “I think first half the edge we normally play with wasn`t there. I spoke to the players about it at half-time and second half it came back.

“In saying that, we had a fantastic chance at 0-0, but it`s an interesting situation here – the expectation is very high, and we felt if that went in, etc etc.

“It didn`t, and they deserved to be ahead at half-time, they were the better side.’
