Sean Dyche has complained about Arsenal’s intent to diving in the 3-1 defeat to Burnley in the Premier League.
The Gunners got back to winning ways with an all round performance at the Emirates Stadium. A brace from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang looked to have taken the control of the game but Ashley Barnes reduced the deficit at the stroke of the 63rd minute.
The Gunners had some nervy moments but a strike in the added minutes from Alex Iwobi sealed a very important three points. Following two consecutive defeats at the hands of Southampton in the Premier League and Spurs in the Carabao Cup quarter final the Gunners needed a win to boost their confidence and they did that with a convincing manner.
Dyche said, “No one wants to see diving in the game.
“There was one with (Granit) Xhaka later in the game and I know he dives as he looks at the ref within a millisecond of going down in the box. I do not want to see that and I do not think anyone else wants to see that
“Ashley Barnes comes out of a tackle and their lad clearly elbows him, but our lad comes out with a booking, which is nearly impossible
“There were two dives in the game and no one got a booking. One of them was already on a booking, so that’s a red card.
“I’m alarmed by the amount of diving lately, three last week and two this week. No one [the authorities] wants to touch it.
“Our player got two hands in the back today and we are now 60 games without a penalty. They are big moments, important moments.”
