SEAN Dyche has described Cesc Fabregas’ astonishing assist for Chelsea’s second goal as one of the best passes he has witnessed.

The Burnley boss said it was impossible not to admire the technique with which Andre Schurrle was provided with the chance to give the Blues the lead for the first time in their 3-1 win at Turf Moor, rounding off a 25-pass move.

“I’m in football and they are magic moments of technical ability. You hope they’re for your side, if not, people witnessed an absolutely fantastic piece of play and you have to hold your hands up,” he said.

“The Fabregas pass is arguably the best I’ve seen in a long, long time because of the control, the awareness, the quality and shape of the pass – it lands perfectly for him (Schurrle) to guide it into the goal.

“You don’t see that every week.

“We still picked the bones out of it, could we do this or that? But it was an absolutely fantastic moment.”

Dyche has reassured his players it won't always be that tough.

“It would be a surprise for it to be like that 20 minutes every week!" he said.

“They were excellent and we had to find a way of breaking their press, play slightly longer than we wanted.

“Jose (Mourinho) mentioned that afterwards.

“I don’t think he was being disrespectful, we did tell the players to go slightly longer because their midfield was so dominant.

“We got off to a good start, but for 20 minutes, people tell me it looked unplayable.

“The rest of the game, I thought we played quite well.”

I think you will find every game tough, most prem teams are loaded with some talent, and proven talent at that, unlike your bunch of bargain basement lot.
