Burnley boss Sean Dyche says that football would become boring if every team decided to play in the same style.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche has suggested that supporters should enjoy the fact that teams opt to play with different styles of play.

The Clarets currently sit in sixth place in the Premier League table, with the club's latest win - a 1-0 triumph over Everton - coming courtesy of a well-worked team move.

However, while admitting that he takes satisfaction from such goals, Dyche has said that he likes his side to try to mix things up, as well as being an admirer of teams who have variety about their play.

The 46-year-old told reporters: "There's no grand statements from me. Let's lose this idea there's only one way of playing: if everyone played the same way football would be so boring it would be frightening.

"It's become a tool do football down. There's still a thrill about the ball going into the box, the ball rumbling around the box, the 'is it going to be cleared, is it going to be scored?'

"Add it to all the beauty of course, the fantastic passages of play. The moment of truth is still putting the ball in the net. However that comes around is still joyous."

Burnley play host to West Ham United on Saturday afternoon.
