Sean Dyche praised “terrific” Nick Pope after the England goalkeeper edged closer to winning this season’s Golden Glove award for the most clean sheets in the Premier League. Pope kept his 15th clean sheet of the campaign on Saturday night as his side beat Norwich 2-0 at Carrow Road, leaving him one clear of Manchester City’s Ederson in the charts. Nick Pope was called into action in the final minutes to deny Norwich a late goal, and Dyche was full of praise for the 28-year-old.
Sean Dyche said “Nick Pope has got to have a chance (of getting the Golden Glove award), at the end there he’s screaming at the two centre-halves to come back for the corner rather than go forward for the corner so he’s obviously aware of his record. He deserves it, he’s been terrific for us all season but he has got a strong group working in front of him. I know he respects that and he respects all his players for what they’re giving on the defensive side of the game and then we keep managing to find moments and win games.”
The Clarets, who have played one more game than all the teams above them, host Brighton in their final match of the season.
