Brighton Coach Hughton Explains Balogun’s Prolonged Bench Role

Brighton Coach Hughton Explains Balogun’s Prolonged Bench Role

Burnley manager Sam Dyche accused Daniel Sturridge of diving in Liverpool's 3-1 win on Wednesday night, while also brushing off Reds boss Jurgen Klopp's criticisms of excessive tackling.

Only 23 minutes into the game Gomez was forced off the pitch following a tackle with Ben Mee. It (Gomez's injury) was unlucky.

"You have to be honest about it, and this isn't just an ex Everton or Chelsea FC player saying it, they're not the power and pace they were last season", Nevin told Irish radio station Newstalk. I played in enough derbies to know what is at stake. It's like bowling because then four or five times it happened.

"Nobody can judge that (type of tackle)".

"It's amusing, he didn't reference Daniel Sturridge's cheating", Dyche said a news conference on Thursday.

Determined to defend his own players from any claims of excessive aggression, Sean Dyche continued to counter the arguement Jurgen Klopp presented. Aggression is a part of football. "You've got to try to win a game, and it's very, very hard for us at the moment quite obviously". There were a lot of situations, challenges. "They don't look like they do", said Klopp.

Dyche said the Klopp didn't mention one particular issue when the managers seemingly exchanged some heated words following the match.

Lovren was not able to face either Everton or Burnley, and Klopp has revealed that the centre-back is still not ready to return to action.

"When you think of real challenges, some of the timing of them were superb".

"The table is nice to see but only our games matter and we cannot decide how City will play, so we will focus on things we can change, [like] our game".

"I'll do my best to come back as quick as possible and hopefully be back with you guys soon".

"The shape was good, the energy, endeavour, and also the will to win".
