I am no old-school manager

(Ah Fat Talk Ball) - Burnley manager Sean Dyche has dismissed talk of him being an "old-school" manager, saying his approach to the game is a perfectly modern application of strong values.

Dyche's no-nonsense style, disciplinarian streak and gruff voice have led some to suggest he is a throwback to the days of authoritarian British managers.

But the 46-year-old, whose side will go above Arsenal into sixth place in the Premier League if they complete the double over Chelsea at Turf Moor on Thursday, sees nothing old-fashioned about his approach.

Facing Antonio Conte's side brings back positive memories for the Clarets who, after being tipped for relegation, now find themselves in with a realistic chance of qualification for the Europa League.

Clarets midfielder Jack Cork, who began his career at Stamford Bridge, is looking forward to trying to get one over on the club that didn't hand him a single start in five years.
