Sean Dyche and Burnley had a fantastic season, which saw them secure a seventh-place finish.

They started the season with a 3-2 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and their total of 54 points was enough to secure European football at Turf Moor for the first time in 51 years.

"For this football club to get to the status of being in European competition is remarkable. The big marker for me was can we get better than last year, but to jump from 40 points to 54 is a big shift, and with some of the results we’ve had along the way, has been fantastic."

Sean Dyche, Burnley manager
