Liverpool deserve more praise - Burnley boss Sean Dyche
Dyche predicted the Reds would win the title ahead of the start of the campaign, and while they will have to wait for their first crown since 1990, their results have taken him back.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have only dropped five points so far, drawing at Manchester United before suffering their only defeat at Watford at the end of February.
They sit six points from a 19th league title, and while some people have downplayed their success, pointing at champions Manchester City dropping below their standards, and the likes of Chelsea, Spurs, Manchester United and Arsenal being in various stages of transition, Dyche believes Liverpool don’t get the credit they deserve.
Asked whether the league has been of a higher standard this season, Dyche replied: “We certainly don’t think we’ve got it all sussed, I don’t think anyone does, apart from Liverpool, who seem to have got it sort of sussed at least!
“Players’ view, managers’ view, I think all Premier League seasons are tough, even the one where we went through seventh, we still had a tough run after Christmas, then we corrected it with five wins.

“Look at Man City, fantastic side, fantastic manager, but even they’ve had a few blips.
“It can happen, it’s tough for everyone in the Premier League.“I think that’s why Liverpool’s achievement - and I did tip them to win it by the way! - is more remarkable, because it’s a really tough league, and they’re not just winning the odd one and drawing, they’ve won all bar two, consistently winning.
“That’s a really tough thing to do, so their achievement has to be spoken of even higher, given recent seasons.
“We all think they’re going to go on and win it - I fancy them to get six points, trust me!”
