Cape Town - Burnley manager Sean Dyche expressed his frustration at going down to Arsenal once more as a result of a late Alexis Sanchez penalty on Sunday.

The Gunners edged a tight Premier League encounter 1-0 at Turf Moor courtesy of Sanchez's spot-kick in stoppage time, after James Tarkowski shoved Aaron Ramsey to the ground.

The Chile international had also settled the contest from the spot at the Emirates Stadium back in January, while Arsene Wenger's side had won the corresponding fixture last season with a late goal as well.

Dyche felt the decision was always likely to go against the Clarets, who missed out on the chance to climb into the top four.

"I thought it was highly unlikely the penalty wasn't going to get given, at that stage, I think you can all make your conclusions from that, working backwards," he said after the match.

"It's a tough one, it probably is a penalty, but my point is it was never not going to be given on today's performance, I can assure you.

"When the ball is four feet over his head, that's the hardest part, but I need to make it clear, you lay your hands on someone, he goes down - not in a cheating way, because he was nudged - they're tough calls. But at that stage of the game, you have to be 100%, which I presume the referee was.

"Look, it's a tough job the referees have, there's no point me saying too much about it, it's not going to change today.

"But there were some frustrations with some of the moments today. To be honest it was highly unlikely it was not going to get given on a day like today."
