Clarets boss Sean Dyche has urged striker Danny Ings to learn from the example of Arsenal matchwinner Alexis Sanchez.
The Chilean ace scored twice in the Gunners’ 3-0 win over Burnley at the Emirates on Saturday.
And Dyche feels the £35m former Barcelona man’s attitude, as much as his ability, was to be admired: “His movement, his energy...I said to Ingsy afterwards ‘that’s part of your development, to play like that’, because he was non-stop.
“Forget about all the quality that he’s got, he was non-stop.”
And there were further lessons in defeat, as Burnley went a 10th Premier League game without victory: “I think yet again there are things we can take from ourselves and there’s also things we can take from the opposition, where we want to take the team, how we want to take it on.
“It’s a balanced view but not an unrealistic view because I know the demands of the job and that is to win games.
“They’re tough to get at the moment, those wins.”
Meanwhile, Dyche revealed Ings’ strike partner Sam Vokes’ return is still some way away.
The Wales international striker is building up his fitness after seven months out after a ruptured anterior cruciate knee ligament, and Dyche said: “It will be a while still yet, we’re going to protect him and make sure he’s right.
“He’s fine, he’s going really well, he’s absolutely on line to be back when he should be back.
“They got 40-odd goals so that in itself is a blow for us to take with Ingsy only just geting back in the team.
“Just when you get promoted you lose one at the beginning of the season in Ingsy and Vokesy is out for a while.
“But they’re all part of the challenges we’ve got.”
