Burnley boss Dyche admits West Ham should have had penalty

Sean Dyche credits West Ham youngster Grady Diangana for “falling normally” on the first-half penalty incident during Burnley’s 4-2 defeat at the London Stadium.

Referee Roger East missed a blatant penalty after Steven Defour tripped Diangana in the area.

“Their lad gets brought down and it’s a penalty, but because he falls normally nothing’s given,” was Dyche’s magnanimous take on the incident.

“I guarantee if he rolls around, flinging his arms around – and credit to him for just falling normally – they get a penalty.”
