Burnley Manager Sean Dyche unhappy with Arsenal winner

Burnley manager Sean Dyche has bemoaned the way in which his side suffered a last-minute defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates this afternoon.

The ten-man hosts had been leading 1-0 until a hectic final seven minutes, which saw Burnley score a penalty, Gunners boss Arsene Wenger sent off and Arsenal edge back ahead with a penalty of their own.

The result meant that the Clarets maintain their status as the Premier League's worst away side, with just one point collected from their 10 trips away from Turf Moor this season.

Speaking after the game, Dyche said that he believes his side were worthy of a point from the encounter and questioned the validity of the late penalty by hinting that Laurent Koscielny was offside when caught by the boot of Ben Mee.

"It's a tough day for us in the end. To lose a game in that fashion, with an offside not given is tough, particularly when you come to tough places like this," he told Sky Sports News.

"We never take anything for granted. We know how tough this division is but you need officials to make the right decisions and that is the shame today.

They have to be brave have officials at places like this, I understand that, but you've got to think it has to be given[offside."

The result sees Burnley stay firm at 13th in the table, 10 points above the relegation zone.
