Sean Dyche came out fighting in response to Jurgen Klopp's criticism of Burnley's tackling.

Klopp was unhappy with the Clarets' sliding tackles during his side's 3-1 victory at Turf Moor on Wednesday and revealed he asked referee Stuart Atwell to curb the challenges despite accepting they were not fouls.

Joe Gomez suffered a potentially serious injury in a challenge by Ben Mee but Dyche commended his players for their tackling, citing a Phil Bardsley challenge on Albert Moreno, which was not given as a foul, as the only dubious one.

"I just can't believe Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool fans - and I don't believe they do - would want cheating in the game and sacrifice good, honest challenges."

I think Ben Mee's was a fantastic tackle, and I think Gomez realised that.

"Of course football managers can question whatever they want but I don't think they can reinvent the rules."

Our tackle count's down, our blocking count's down, so how are you judging physicality?
