Burnley

Dyche unhappy with officials

30th January 2019, 10:18 by Nick Harris

Sean Dyche was disappointed with the officials after seeing Burnley concede twice in five minutes to draw at Old Trafford.

Burnley, who had defended resolutely and were in front thanks to second-half goals from Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood, looked to be heading for a rare win at the Theatre of Dreams until two late goals.

Paul Pogba scored from the penalty spot in the 87th minute and Victor Lindelof scrambled in a 92nd-minute equaliser but Dyche felt his side were on the wrong end of any marginal decisions - although he was pleased with a point.

Dyche said: "I have no clue where a mystery five minutes came from, I don't think anyone in the stadium did, everyone in the stadium had a gasp as to where the five minutes has come from.

"Every minute counts at that stage of the game, you see what happened and how late the goals are. In these parts for the history of this club, when five minutes goes up, everyone believes.

"I asked the officials and they didn't give me a very valid reason. They seemed to come from somewhere.

"And then if you look at the margins, I think you'll find when (Alexis) Sanchez wins the header, Lindelof is marginally offside and, as it comes off the keeper, he finishes it. That's a nice debate for everyone, at least."
