Jose Mourinho has come under intense scrutiny after his team were thrashed 3-0 at home by Tottenham just a week after losing 3-2 away at Brighton.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche has no shortage of respect for Mourinho, who, as well as triumphing in the Premier League three times with Chelsea, has also won the top flight in Spain, Italy and Portugal, and the Champions League twice. He said: 'The truth is in the whole.

"We've got a really good group, a good group of hard workers and wonderful talents everywhere you look on the field. I will tell you then".

"At the final whistle as well, the way they were clapping the team was I think really respectful and really nice for us as players to receive after a disappointing result". It's a fantastic game to get rid of all that negativity around the club. "The quality of the managers I believe is when you get to that level, all the managers they are top, top managers". I think they'd be silly to sack him, it'd be awful but you've seen it before and I've seen it at Chelsea. "I'm sure we will eventually", he said.

"He played three very good matches and is not easy to play three very good matches when your team loses two of them", said Mourinho.
