Burnley are so fired up now they are ready to knock Arsenal off Europa League spot.

Dyche: 'Burnley in good stead for Europe'

Burnley manager Sean Dyche has said that his players are in a “good position” to secure Europa League football this season after defeating Watford 2-1 away.

The Clarets boss praised his side for “winning ugly” at Vicarage Road and insisted that his players deserve the reward of European football for their feats this season.

“There’s a lot of games to go, a lot of football to be played, but the lads have put themselves in a good position to be thinking that,” Dyche told reporters in his post-match press conference.

“The reward for the lads is going into the final few games of the season, knowing the first marker has been achieved. Now they all enjoy their football.

“We know we didn’t play well, but found a way. We had a scratch of luck, doing the ugly stuff. All that is important.”

The win leaves Burnley in seventh place in the table, while Watford are down to 12th.
