Burnley boss Dyche mocks Arsenal striker Lacazette: Some really good screaming today - and high

Burnley boss Sean Dyche slammed the antics of Alexandre Lacazette after their 1-1 draw with Arsenal on Saturday.

Dyche was left less than impressed by the "screaming" antics of Alexandre Lacazette on Saturday, as the Clarets boss again turned on the Arsenal forward.

Lacazette could be heard bellowing out in pain in the second half of the 1-1 draw at Turf Moor when he went down under a challenge from Erik Pieters, with his loud yells echoing around the empty stands.

"The screaming, some real good screaming today," he said.

"Some real good screaming today, on the scream-o-meter probably the highest I've heard for a long time and there's some pretty high ones."

It isn't the first time that Dyche has accused Arsenal players of similar antics during matches, and in August 2019 he again spoke out after a defeat at the Emirates.

"The game is in a really poor state, with players literally falling on the floor," he said back then.

"I'm the only one who ever talks about it. I find that really weird."
