BURNLEY boss Sean Dyche believes his players are ready for the big kick-off after completing their pre-season programme on a high.
The Clarets came from behind against Verona to win 3-1 in their sixth and final friendly.
But more significantly, Dyche was pleased to see his players come through the game unscathed as he prepares to finalise his plans for their Premier League opener with Chelsea on Monday week.
"The main thing was to come through with as many people fit as possible," he said.
"There were changes today again - it's not necessarily the side (to start season), it was important we get minutes into people and we did that again.
"We're pleased with that, and that the minor injuries we've had in pre-season have cleared up."
After a goalless first half, despite chances for both sides, Verona took the lead a minute into the second through Lazaros Christodoulopoulos.
The Clarets reacted quickly to equalise through Matt Taylor, before Lukas Jutkiewicz put Burnley in front with a header just after the hour.
Second half substitute Ross Wallace completed the win with a free kick.
"I thought first half we were ok, the tempo was a little bit slow, but after a crazy first couple of minutes in the second half, we got a grip of things and played much more like what we're about, and there were three very good goals, and a great reaction, which we have a name for," said Dyche.
"They were no mugs and we gave a really good account of ourselves, and were going ever so strong physically at the end."
