What have the managers said?

Burnley boss Vincent Kompany is desperate to maintain the balance in his squad ahead of the Sky Bet Championship opener at Huddersfield on Friday.

He said: “Everybody has been really proud about how healthy Burnley has been in the past, and we have probably gone over that a little bit.

“If we want to go back to being healthy, we have to make the right decisions for that.

“We are going to have to turn around the squad a little bit and get the balance.

“I am really happy with the senior guys in the squad now, that is why we did what we did to keep them at the club, and it is just to find the right balance.”

Talking about the future of Vydra, Kompany said: “He is getting treatment here at the moment.

“The club has made an offer for him to stay, and then I have to see where it is between the parties.”

Kompany has vowed to change the style of play, which was known for being direct under Dyche.

Huddersfield boss Danny Schofield, who takes charge of his first game following his surprise summer appointment, knows to expect something different.

“There’s definitely a difference in their style of play and it will be a different Burnley team to what we saw previously,” he said in his pre-match press conference.

“They’ve had a lot of change in their squad and the centre-backs in particular. It’s something we’re aware of and we’ll see how it goes.

“We’ve watched all the pre-season games obviously and we’re prepared as much as we can be, but we’re focusing more on ourselves and what we can do.”
