    "In the opening stages, they looked in danger of being overwhelmed, but gradually outfought a Gunners side who were rarely without a player complaining, limping, or rolling around on the floor."

    What is this nonsense coming from the BBC?

    When Burnley moaned and *****ed about every single decision that didn’t outright go their way. Dyche is such a tool. No wonder that his last name sounds like a STD...

    Careful. It's like blasphemy to critise the chosen one on here.

    I'm not Ceballos' biggest fan, but surely he was the more creative option. If he'd taken off Guendouzi for Willock, I'd have thought for more strength and drive.

    Fewtch Ozil at 10 And Emery Out

    Mikel must’ve borrowed the leftover grease from Emery’s locker yesterday. That was the most Emery like performance from him and the team since he arrived. Can’t believe he started with a midfield 2 of Xhaka and Guendouzi, a recipe for disaster proven time and time again.

    We were in the game though until Saka injured himself and he couldn’t go up and down the wing like he did in the start. I think we’d probably win it if he didn’t get injured. Width and speed on the wings is so crucial for how Arteta wants to play, we lost a lot without him on pitch.

    They’ve been at it for years mate. You should have seen the article after the chelsea match in what was obviously the best game that week, far down the list and nothing about us being excellent and holding Chelsea. Just that Chelsea were unlucky not to win

    Dyche is a quality manager. He's done very well with Burnley.

    But he is also very disingenuous in his complaints about how other teams cheat and he and his team are the only honest ones. How he himself is the only one speaking up about some perceived cheating scandal.

    It does work though. His team does get away with cutting down other teams players and fouling to stop attacks and intimidate opponents.

    I think he does what he think is needed but his constant ranting about other teams’ players diving is just so old. Yesterday they managed to injure Saka and get away with it without a yellow even. So the tactic works. Guess that is all Dyche is asking for.

    No doubt but everytime we play them we complain about diving i mean come on look at the treatment Saka got they kick him around so they can stop us and he went off with knee and hip injury.

    Yes clearly saka getting off with knee and hip injury was because we diving.

    I get branded a conspiracy theorist every time I bring it up but there’s serious agendas against certain teams in the prem. try watching a city game, they get it even worse than us.

    Burnley fans were booing Saka for getting injured. They’re disgraceful human beings (the ones that did it).

    Because we soft we need to be hard on refs Arteta too need to chose his moments to talk bad about refs. wenger was always doing that.

    There were 9 times in the game that play had to be held up for players being "injured". How are we supposed to know which ones are genuinely hurt and which ones are crying like two-year-olds falling over on the hard pitch?

    (Ben Mee, when kicked in the face, was not one of the injury delays. Anyone of your players would be crying yet.)

    Players do not fall over for the sake of it. If they do then it's likely because they are feeling pain, even if temporary. Just because some people have this cultural attitude of needing to be brave to play through pain doesn't mean everyone else should. In football there is likely to be pain in every instance of contact and players need a breather.

    If he had dark hair and tanned skin people on here would be sucking him off.

    He’s done a great job.

    It's relative to their club. He wouldn't succeed here at Arsenal.

    Bit obvious David. Sometimes I think Burnley/Dyche and Bournemouth/Howe etc are the perfect mix and without each other they won’t be as effective.
