Sean Dyche believes form and the manner of performances this season from his Everton side have helped create a greater sense of unity between the squad and the Club’s fans.


The Blues beat Chelsea 2-0 at Goodison Park on Sunday to make it three successive Premier League wins for the first time since March 2021, while Dyche’s men have now tasted defeat in just two of their past ten matches across all competitions.


In Dyche’s opinion, that prolonged run, combined with consistency of performances, has not only rewarded loyal Evertonians but also helped to strengthen the growing connection between the two.


“We built a similar thing at Burnley but not in the same size in terms of the club,” said Dyche at Thursday’s press conference held at Finch Farm. “Goodison, 40,000 people, it feels intense, it feels like a cauldron, the fans are right there for you.


“I think we’ve reconnected in a very authentic way [with the fans] and I’m very, very pleased with that. The fans are playing their part and, of course, the players are playing their part.


“I mentioned when I got here, the marvels of the past, the bringing of a modern future, but one of the marvels was the connection. The belief in the shirt, the belief in the fans, the belief in the club and I think that’s on show.


“Adding the quality and adding the performance levels of individuals, adding the fact we are getting the details right more often now, then that’s a really good mixture.”





Having followed up on the hard-fought 1-0 win at Nottingham Forest at the beginning of the month with two victories against sides expected to fight for Europe in Newcastle and Chelsea, the Toffees now travel to a newly-promoted Burnley side who are sitting second from bottom in the table.


Dyche’s side will go into the clash as bookies’ favourites, however, the Everton boss affirmed there will be no complacency from his side who, in his opinion, now know the hard work required to secure positive results.


“I would hope the players, without any influence from me, in the past couple of seasons will know that you have to respect everybody in the Premier League,” explained Dyche. “I think that’s growing here.


“Certainly, the idea of complacency should be off the table. I think it is. I think the players are continually learning everything you have to do to win games in the Premier League.


“We’re bringing a more defined awareness to them – on details of a game and the details of a performance, and I think we’re delivering that better and better.


“The underbelly of the performance is the hard yards; the work that the team are willing to put in, and that’s been on show. So, if you mix that with good organisation and quality, then you have a chance in every game. You certainly have a chance to be competitive in the Premier League, and that’s what we’re looking to be.”
