Burnley, who lost striker Danny Ings to Liverpool at the start of the season for a tribunal-set fee which could rise to £8m, produced a long undefeated run to seal promotion after an indifferent first half of the campaign, which saw them eight points adrift of the automatic promotion places on Boxing Day.
Former Watford manager Dyche, who masterminded Burnley’s return to the Premier League just 359 days after they left it, said the Championship presented a “different challenge” from when the club last won promotion in 2014.
Dyche added: “The expectation rises from everyone, the money available to the club for its future – all of the things that it brings.
“The mentality of the players has been firm all year. We were questioned heavily around Christmas, but I never blinked.
“I knew what we were about, I knew the group we’d got, I knew the mentality and I knew we could go all the way.
“Last time we were under the radar, it was a fairytale. This one was organised, it was business-like and it was well-fashioned from all involved, especially the players.”
