Burnley earned their fifth straight Premier League win with a 2-1 triumph over Leicester City at Turf Moor on Saturday to boost their chances of qualifying for Europe for the first time in 51 years.

Puel said, "Of course I was impressed because there was good concentration before the game and good duels at the beginning and it was close with the other team but to concede two goals quickly it was hard to accept".

A seventh-place finish would also mean Europa League qualification, provided Southampton do not win the FA Cup.

"To have the opportunity to play this decisive game at this stage of the season is good because we shouldn't forget where we were a few months ago". The rest of the squad is good to go, but it'll be interesting to see who's drafted into the squad as a substitute midfielder. It looked unlikely they would offer much of a contest after Chris Wood and Kevin Long scored in the first nine minutes. They've got nothing to lose and they played like that.

"Our story is still about getting as many points as we can get".

It is now a year since the Clarets were awarded a spot-kick, and Dyche said: "It's impossible, or at least improbable in modern football".

Leicester boss Claude Puel, meanwhile, felt Ashley Barnes should have been shown red rather than yellow for a challenge on Kasper Schmeichel that meant the goalkeeper had to be replaced.

"I think so, yes", he said. It was important to come back in the second half with quality and we improved in our play.

Puel admitted his side's hopes of European football are now hanging by a thread but was happy with the response to their poor start.

N'Koudou has started the last two Clarets fixtures, helping them to wins against West Brom and Watford.

"At the beginning we made things easy for the opposition".

Christian Eriksen's goal shortly before halftime offered fourth-placed Tottenham a route back into the game but Sterling lashed home from close range in the 72nd minute.
