Arsne Wenger has a great saying about 'raising your minimum'

The new man in charge is Oscar Garcia, a former Barcelona player who was last season in charge of Israeli club Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Garcia oversaw his first league win as Brighton manager last week, a 1-0 victory at Birmingham, and is now keen to get his first win at the Amex.

"I trust the players and they have to trust what we are doing, how we are working," he said. "They are quietly confident and we want the Burnley game to arrive as soon as possible.

"I know how the players were working and at the other games we deserved a better result, and finally we got a victory in Birmingham, which is not an easy place to win.

"We want to win in front of all of the fans. Last Saturday we did it in front of some at St. Andrew's but on Saturday we have a chance to do it in front of all of them here. We will try to play a good game and get the three points."

He added: "Burnley are unbeaten, they have seven points and they are a strong team. Last week was the first week we could train and practice without any midweek games and this is very important because we can practice a lot of things."

Sean Dyche will be looking for Burnley to extend the unbeaten start to the season and wants his players go to all Arsenal and adopt the philosophy that Arsène Wenger applies at the Premier League club.

"I think you can see by the way the players go about their business that there is a nice energy and belief that is building," he said ahead of the journey to Sussex.

"There's no shortage of quality either and when the mix is right between the mental and physical aspects, we think we are in a good place. It's a work in progress and none of us think we are the real deal. We have to keep working at it and chipping away at the finer details."

Dyche continued: "Arsène Wenger has a great saying about 'raising your minimum' and if you can keep pushing the bottom level of your performance, the top looks after itself.

"We know when we are playing well that we are competitive and can take on anyone. It's on the quieter days when you have to take a grip of the game and perform in order to get what you want.

"The Championship is right there in front of everyone to see; ups, downs, ins, outs and all the madness that ensues, but we are going about our business in the proper fashion at the moment and we are looking for that to continue.

"It's a tough ask going away from home to some of these clubs, but we feel it is a challenge we can take on and perform."

As always, Dyche has turned a negative into a positive; a player losing out to injury offering an opportunity for another.

That's occurred with the news on Ross Wallace and the manager said: "You get a chance and you take it. Ross is a loss, but there will be other players looking to come in and deliver performances for us.

"It's a squad game now and it's important that players are fuelled up with energy for the game. I've made it known how important the substitutes are at any given time and they did that against Yeovil.

"Now someone will get the chance from the start and they have to grab it, starting at Brighton.

"They have a new manager with a change of thoughts and Oscar has come into the Championship and will want to give the team his own feel from a tactical standpoint, from what we have seen this season.

"He will want to influence the team as he sees fit in order to get results, but we will look to do what we do best and that is give a performance that can get us a result."
