As a follow-up to Burnley's historic win at Anfield, Sean Dyche couldn't do better than becoming the first English manager since Harry Redknapp to win a major trophy.

While Pep Guardiola rates Brighton's Graham Potter as the finest English manager of his generation, Dyche's reputation was further enhanced when his budget team ended Liverpool's unbeaten home run dating back four years.

There is something of a revival in homegrown managers with nine of the 20 Premier League clubs run by Englishmen. But a credibility gap will continue until one lands their hands on silverware – Redknapp being the last when Portsmouth won the FA Cup in 2008.

The competition is the best chance of success for Dyche and Fulham boss Scott Parker who meet in the fourth round on Sunday aware there is a winnable tie against Bournemouth or Crawley in round five.

Dyche understands the profile of English managers will rise if they were able to take a lap of honour.

'I like the idea of English managers working at the top level. I think it's good for our game,' says Dyche.

'I've been considered successful because of the size of Burnley and what we've achieved but to be truly visually successful to everyone, of course winning a trophy is going to be of great benefit.

'At the same time, I don't think it is essential for an English manager to be recognised purely by winning something.'

The pandemic has meant Dyche has so far been restricted to discussing Burnley's future with their new American owners via Zoom.

The win at Anfield confirmed Dyche's importance and why he wouldn't want to rip up the model that has served the club well.

He also recognises it is time Burnley had a good cup run having blown an opportunity in 2017 when beaten at home by non-league Lincoln in the fifth round. This year they squeezed past MK Dons on penalties following a late equaliser by Matej Vydra.

'To be fair, I do want to have a cup run. We put out a very strong team in the last round and got through that after extra-time and penalties,' said the Burnley boss.

After 68 games, 55 wins , 13 draws and almost four years, fortress Anfield has finally been stormed. Now came a first win at Anfield since the year Bill Shankly retired and the focus on Liverpool’s plight should not deflect from the way Sean Dyche keeps on chalking up historic feats with Burnley .

Sean Dyche fears football is in "dangerous territory" after his Burnley side were not awarded a penalty in their draw with Tottenham. The result means Tottenham have now gone five games without a win in all competitions - their worst run since they went seven without a victory in the autumn of 2016.

'We have always taken the cup seriously even though there are some challenges. The Premier League has a lot of kudos around the world and is important not just for the club, but for the town of Burnley.

'This is a business and if you take away the emotion of football then it makes sense to prioritise the league.'

Dyche was captain of Chesterfield when they reached the semi-finals in 1997. 'I had my moment in the sun so I understand the emotions of it. There is something special about the FA Cup. That's why everybody loves it.

'I will put out a team that I believe will win.'
