Burnley boss hits out at missed Offside call

Burnley Manager Sean Dyche hit out at the Officials today believing that some poor decision making late in the game cost his side a point today against Arsenal at the Emirates.

Burnley were a man up when they awarded a contentious penalty in the 93rd minute from which Andre Gray equalized. However, a penalty awarded to Arsenal in the 97th minute of the game drew criticism from Dyche, who felt that Laurent Koscielny was offside in the build up play and that the Gunners shouldn't have really been awarded their penalty.

Speaking after the game, Dyche said, "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 added, "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]."

Meanwhile, Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger, who had been sent off by that stage of the game said, "On television it looked a penalty. Yeah, the only thing Koscielncy came out again before he kicked the ball, was it a fraction of a 1000th of a second offside? I don't know."
