Burnley boss Sean Dyche rejects 'anti-football' claims by David Luiz

Sean Dyche has hit back at comments suggesting Burnley use ‘anti-football’ tactics ahead of Sunday’s showdown with Manchester City.

Chelsea defender David Luiz slammed the Clarets’ approach after the 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge on Monday.

Luiz told Sky Sports: “They were trying to time waste from the first minute of the first half, and then it was anti-football so it’s difficult to play against.”

Burnley enjoyed just 24 per cent possession in the game while Chelsea had 22 shots but the home team were unable to find a winner.

Burnley host Pep Guardiola’s team with their top-flight almost guaranteed as they sit nine points above the drop zone with three games remaining.

Dyche’s side held City to a 1-1 draw in East Lancashire last season but the champions have beaten Burnley 5-0 twice this campaign in all competitions.
