Burnley on the rise
Before the Premier League season was brought to a halt, Burnley were in fine form.
After 29 games of the season, the Clarets are sat 10th in the English top-flight, just four points adrift of 6th placed Wolves.
Burnley are also undefeated in their last seven league outings.
The latest of those ties saw Burnley draw 1-1 with fellow European football chasers Tottenham.
Sean Dyche’s side have also almost certainly secured their Premier League survival for another season, as that Spurs draw gave them 39 points and put them 12 points clear of the relegation zone.
Sean Dyche bags Premier League award
In the wake of Burnley’s impressive form, Sean Dyche has, on Tuesday, been named the Premier League Manager of the Month for February.

Burnley would play four PL ties last month, winning two, drawing two and conceding just one goal.
The English tactician beat Mikel Arteta, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Chris Wilder to the prize, and had this to say after picking up the trophy:
“The most important of the four results was probably Southampton.
“They were on a good run and we lost a player in Woody (Chris Wood) early on, put Vyds ([Matej Vydra) on and it paid off.
“I enjoy it more than you think!
“The Premier League is unforgiving. It’s not a case of not enjoying the moments but I reflect on them and then park them pretty quickly.
“I’m always looking at the end of the season, where you finish, and not the journey within it. But I do enjoy it more than people think!” As quoted by the Premier League’s official website.
Elsewhere on the Premier League award front, Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes was named PL Player of the Month for February on Monday.
