Burnley boss Dyche seethes: Arsenal players dived all over the place

Burnley boss Sean Dyche slammed Arsenal's players for diving throughout Saturday's defeat.

Dyche was left seething at the full-time whistle after watching his side crash to a 2-1 defeat.

One moment in particular had Burnley raging when Ashley Barnes was penalised for pulling back Sead Kolasinac while they attempted to grab a late equaliser.

After the game the boss fumed: "It's not encouraging for the game of football, I'm really worried for the game of football.

"People diving all over the place today – it has to go.

"I was at a Premier League meeting actually and it was brought up.

"Did you know the maximum you can get for a dive is a yellow card? So for every player in the Premier League they can cheat at least once a game and get nothing other than a yellow.

"I don't think it will stop, do you? It's not likely to stop."

When asked what the solution could be, Dyche responded: "Ban them. It will be out of football in a month."
