Burnley 0 Swansea 1: Clarets suffer defeat on Premier League return

Burnley boss Dyche said: “We gave away a soft goal but in the second half gave a very good performance and put a good side on the back foot.

“We will learn from it but we need to learn quickly. It’s an unforgiving league, as we know from last time.”

Swansea boss Guidolin hailed the impact of his new frontman Llorente. He said: “He isn’t only strong in the air, he is also a very, very good player. Now I understand why he played with his national team – and I hope he will again.”
