Dyche lashes out at officials after dramatic draw at United

Cape Town - Burnley boss Sean Dyche was annoyed about a couple decisions made by officials during their 2-2 draw against Manchester United on Tuesday.

The Clarets looked on track to record a historic victory at Old Trafford - their first since 1962 - when they lead 2-0 with just minutes left to play. But a Paul Pogba penalty and Victor Lindelof’s goal in injury time sent Old Trafford into raptures and ended Burnley's hopes.

"I don't know where the five minutes of stoppage time came from," Dyche told his press conference.

"That's a bugbear because it gave the crowd a lift. I also think Lindelof is offside when Alexis Sanchez heads it but, like I say, the margins are tight."

However, Dyche certainly recognised the silver-lining, heaping praise on his charges for ending United’s eight match winning streak.

“It was an excellent performance...we know they are in fine form," he continued.

“We were resilient, we are getting harder and harder to beat, and we can score goals as well.

“The bravery is coming back to the team. Fantastic credit to the players; [it was] a firm draw.

“Our performances lately have picked up. Their will, desire and mentality is growing all the time.”
