Burnley boss Sean Dyche believes his side will stand a better chance of surviving the drop after making Turf Moor a difficult place to visit so far this season.
The Clarets, 2.38 to be relegated, currently occupy ninth place in the Premier League table after a stunning start to the campaign despite sceptics claiming they would struggle.
Dyche’s men have already won four games at home this season to already match the total they reached during their last spell in the top flight two years ago.
Liverpool, Watford, Everton and Crystal Palace have all left Turf Moor empty-handed, and only Swansea and Arsenal have left with victories.
“We have made this a tough place to come. One of the biggest things I’m intrigued by is finding different ways to win,” Dyche told the Lancashire Telegraph.
“I don’t think you’ve heard me talk about brands very often, I want the team to be flexible and learn how to win games. That’s where it starts for me, the outcome, winning.
“At this level it’s more difficult. We’ve got a good handle on what allows teams to win in the Championship, and in this division it is quality – and that can be expensive – but it’s also the understanding of the team and that has to change. “It’s been changing well over the weeks.”
