Burnley manager Sean Dyche has insisted that his side are embracing the challenge of juggling Premier League football with European commitments due to their involvement in the Europa League.
The Clarets earned their place in Europe courtesy of a seventh-place finish last term and will face Olympiacos for a place in the group stages of the competition, having already overcome Aberdeen and Istanbul Basaksehir in qualifying so far.
Burnley have not made such a successful start to their Premier League campaign with only one point from their opening two games, but Dyche insists that his side are enjoying the "fresh" and "exciting" challenge.
"The main differences [between Premier League and European football] are obvious. The travelling, obviously. We're in an era where we can get a private plane but we got back at 5am from the last game [away at Istanbul Basakehir]. That's still travelling, and it's travelling through the night," Dyche told reporters.
"You of course have weather conditions, different surfaces, and in the case of going to Istanbul, a very heavy surface, certainly not like the Desso pitches here which are light and firm. There are different styles of course in Europe compared to the Premier League, which is usually a bit quicker.
"But it's all part of the rich tapestry of football and we enjoy that side of it. We've enjoyed the early part of [the season]. It's work, but it's new and fresh. It's something exciting for the fans, whilst alongside that realising the main thing is still the Premier League."
Burnley, who face a trip to Athens on Thursday, are taking part in Europe for the first time since 1966-67.
