Sean Dyche Baffled After VAR Denied Burnley A Match-Saving Penalty Against Arsenal

Posted by

Sean Dyche, the manager of Burnley, was enraged after new Premier League interpretations denied his team a game-saving penalty against Arsenal.

After checking his monitor and seeing Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale had touched the ball before capturing Matej Vydra in the 69th minute, referee Anthony Taylor changed his decision to award Burnley a penalty kick.

The Clarets were awarded a VAR penalty last season against Leeds when goalkeeper Nick Pope was penalized for catching Patrick Bamford in the follow-through despite clearing the ball first.

‘Our record for getting penalties is horrendous as you know,’ said Dyche.

‘I have to say the keeper does get a touch so in theory that doesn’t given though you might question whether it was a clear and obvious error.
