Burnley boss Dyche: Dele Alli could've seen red - he was out of control

Burnley boss Sean Dyche felt Dele Alli should've been sent off during defeat to Tottenham.

Alli won Spurs' opening penalty, but also was lucky not to be sent off for a shocking challenge on Charlie Taylor.

Dyche said, "It was a tough one - Dele Alli is out of control - he was never going to get the ball. Number of years ago that was just a big challenge, but it's a tough one today - an orange card.

"The penalty was a tough one but generally they get given. I think it was a penalty after Barnes was fouled.

"The one person I've not mentioned is Harry Kane - he's a fantastic player. He must be up there with one of the best strikers in the world.

"You lick your wounds today. They turned up and we didn't quite. Overall, I know where the club is at. We have to be really happy where the club is at."
