Dyche has been discussing the impact of the intense schedule this season, which he claims has limited the potential to implement creative training methods with the Clarets this season: “Managers used to have real free rein and trust.
“Now it’s slightly different. Not so much here, because I’ve been here a long time, but directors of football want to know your training schedules and what you’re doing. If you say you’re going down the Trent for an ice cream I’m not sure that always goes down well, although ironically sometimes it is needed to deload the players.
“Now it is more of a professional relentlessness. This is what you get paid for, this is your job, this is this is the schedule and these are the challenges. Buckle up and get on with it, end of.”

What is the team news?
Chris Wood and Dale Stephens returned as second-half substitutes against Tottenham at the weekend, but Erik Pieters, Johann Berg Gudmundsson, Robbie Brady and Ashley Barnes remained sidelined.
Brady and Berg Gudmundsson were “close”, which means they are the most likely of that quartet to return.
Wood is therefore a contender to start after returning against Spurs,
Winger Harvey Barnes (knee) is the latest to be forced onto the sidelines after he was injured during the defeat to Arsenal, although defender Jonny Evans should be able to feature having also limped off with a calf problem.
James Maddison (hip), Ayoze Perez (knee), Wes Morgan (back), James Justin (knee), Dennis Praet and Wesley Fofana (both hamstring) are all out. Jamie Vardy is not 100 per cent either, but he should push through to play here.
Burnley predicted XI: Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Brownhill, Westwood, Stephens, McNeil; Wood, Rodriguez
Leicester predicted XI: Schmeichel; Castagne, Evans, Soyuncu, Thomas; Ndidi, Tielemans; Pereira, Under, Albrighton; Vardy
Burnley provisional squad: Pope, Pieters, Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Cork, Taylor, McNeil, Westwood, Vydra, Peacock-Farrell, Bardsley, Long, Dunne, Brady, Berg Gudmundsson, Stephens, Driscoll-Glennon, Benson, Rodriguez, Mumbongo, Brownhill, Wood.
Leicester provisional squad: Schmeichel, Ward, Jakupovic, Fuchs, Soyuncu, Evans, Daley-Campbell, Pereira, Castagne, Thomas, Choudhury, Tavares, Ndidi, Tielemans, Mendy, Amartey, Albrighton, Under, Vardy, Iheanacho.
With Leicester down to the bare bones and the Clarets eager to bounce back after their humbling at the hands of a Gareth Bale inspired Spurs, we expect a strong reaction from the hosts, which could be enough to earn a result here. The Foxes still have quality, but we’ll lean towards the sides sharing the points. 1-1.
