Burnley's Charlie Austin believes that he is more aggressive and a better player ever since Sean Dyche became the club's manager.

Charlie Austin has insisted that there is more "aggression" about his play ever since Sean Dyche took charge of Burnley.

The club's top scorer had 18 goals to his name when Dyche replaced Eddie Howe in October and has gone on to find the net six more times since then.

However, despite his positive goal return, Austin has credited Dyche for adding other aspects to his game.

"The manager's come in now and given me that little bit more spice to my game and it's really helped me, as a person in and around the club as well and away from the club," he is quoted as saying by the Lancashire Evening Telegraph. "He's added a little bit more aggression to my game.

"I wanted it when Eddie Howe was manager – I wanted to win everything. Now I just want it a little bit more. The manager challenges me. He sets out what he wants.

"I feel fitter. I'm covering a bit more ground, and my all round game has come on. Every manager I've worked with has added a little bit."

Austin joined the Clarets in January 2011 from Swindon Town.
