He said: "It was a performance where we never got started and never got to grips with the game at all. It's a real low day for us performance-wise.

"There is a reality to it, we've seen results like this in the Premier League and it's happened to us and it's important we grow and learn from it very very quickly."

Burnley have now gone over six and a half games since scoring their last goal. On how he will attempt to fix that problem, Dyche said: "We'll keep working on the training pitch, keeping working with the players' mentality and belief."

Marouane Fellaini will not give up on his United career without a fight and is ready to convince Louis van Gaal he has a future at Old Trafford, the Manchester Evening News reported today.

It's been claimed van Gaal has sent word back from Brazil he wants executive vice chairman Ed Woodward to set up a sale for the Belgian midfielder as he attempts to clear the decks at Old Trafford before starting work after the World Cup.

But M.E.N. Sport reported no such message has been passed on and the 26-year-old’s exit has not been on the agenda, neither has talk of a reported £22m move to Juventus.
