Sean Dyche describes Everton 'madness' and highlights naive side of Burnley
Sean Dyche lamented the "naive" aspect of his side's performance after losing 3-1 to Everton on Monday evening.
The Blues found themselves behind early in the first half after Ben Mee's header had put the visitors in front, but completed a stunning comeback soon afterwards.
A goal from Michael Keane set the hosts in the way before a brilliant long-range strike from Andros Townsend a few minutes later gave Rafa Benitez's side the lead.
Moments afterwards, Demarai Gray latched onto a fantastic Abdoulaye Doucoure through-ball to round off the scoring and seal all three points.
Dyche was happy with the way his side had played up until the equalising goal, and then explained the "madness of football" that followed at Goodison.
He said: "Very pleased actually [with Burnley's performance], up until the goal.
"The way we controlled the game away from home, especially at a place like this is not easy.
"We conceded an awkward first, we were mis-shaped a bit having come out of a set-piece situation and they score a goal.
"After that, there's the madness of football. We had a mad six minutes and the game has got away from you.
"That's sometimes the Premier League, it's certainly something we've got to get a grip of.
"You can't wait for things to come your way, you've got to make it come your way. We've certainly got to make sure we get the mentality right.
"They've had a great start and have some very good players, so to do what we did until that stage was pleasing.
"But then you've got to take the game on, and you can't wait for football to give you anything. You've got to make football give you something."

Despite the quality nature of Everton's goals, Dyche still had an issue with them on his side of things.
The Burnley boss believes his side were "naive" in giving chances to the hosts, and that is what allowed the Blues to take control of the match.
"You're playing against some really good sides," he added.
"Two of the goals tonight, we've given the ball away too cheaply and they've opened us up. One of them is a great finish of course, but we've given them [the chance].
"For a group that's not naive, they're pretty naive errors. Giving the ball away and getting caught on the transition twice, against a team that look like they're getting to be that team. A bit deeper, defensively-bound and ready to spring.
"The Premier League is like that with some teams."
