Burnley boss Sean Dyche felt his side were unlucky not to be awarded a penalty in their 1-0 defeat against Arsenal at Turf Moor. Referee Anthony Taylor pointed to the spot when Matej Vydra went down in the box under a challenge by Aaron Ramsdale. However, the decision was reversed following a VAR review. The Clarets are now winless in their last 13 top-flight matches at Turf Moor. While Dyche admits Ramsdale made contact with the ball, he says similar incidents have gone against his side in recent memory.
Sean Dyche said: “It’s not a major surprise with our penalty record. I must say the keeper does get a touch on it, I’ve seen it back, so in theory that doesn’t get given. You might question why (VAR intervened), if it’s not a clear and obvious error, but it obviously was to go to the VAR screen. Last season, one on (Patrick) Bamford gets given, this season that doesn’t, but that’s sometimes the way it goes.”
Dyche – who signed a new four-year deal with the Clarets earlier in the week – handed Maxwel Cornet his Burnley debut off the bench. The Ivory Coast international made an immediate impact, forcing Ramsdale into a flying save within minutes.
Sean Dyche added: “He did very well with the ball, he has to learn the little nuances of the Premier League and transition, but we brought him here because we feel he is a good player.”
