However, a remarkable upturn in results has led to the club becoming a fixture in the top half of the table, with qualification for the Europa League now not out of the question.
Providing that Dyche continues in his position at Turf Moor, the Burnley manager will want to mix familiarity with the addition of a couple of fresh faces, as well as being mindful that he may have to cash in on one of his star men.
With that in mind, Sports Mole predicts how the North-West outfit may line up at the beginning of the next campaign.
Despite the January arrival of Josh Brownhill, Dyche has no reason to make significant changes to his midfield, leaving it likely that Ashley Westwood and Jack Cork will take on the defensive-minded positions.
However, with Burnley having been frequently linked with Chelsea youngster Conor Gallagher, it appears possible that the playmaker could be given a chance at Turf Moor next season.
Burnley are also being linked with an approach for Bristol City winger Niclas Eliasson, who has contributed three goals and 12 assists in the Championship this season despite making nearly as many substitute appearances as he has starts.
