Burnley boss bemoans lack of video reviews

Burnley manager Sean Dyche has said that the Premier League needs video reviews sooner rather than later.

“I think it’s the future, whether I’m a fan or not, I think it will come,” Dyche said of the introduction of video technology.

The comments came after his team fell to Arsenal in controversial circumstances, with Laurent Koscielny apparently offside when he won a penalty that was converted by Alexis Sanchez for a last-gasp win.

“Two points against a team like Arsenal, if you add that to our league form, and where we are, people would say: ‘They’re going along nicely,’ but they’ve [the points] been taken away by a decision," Dyche said, apparently also referring to an injury-time winner Koscielny scored while again apparently offside and using his hand at Turf Moor in October last year.

“So it’s highly likely over time that some form of video replay will be used.”

Dyche said his team are performing well and are improving away from home.

“The mentality is good. I try and be honest, early season we weren’t good enough away from home and didn’t deserve anything, but the last three or four games, we’ve delivered enough to get something."

This Premier League season the Clarets have lost nine of their 10 away games, but have lost narrowly to top sides Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City and Arsenal.
