Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp complained about Burnley's tackling during the 3-1 Premier League win at Anfield.

Dyche said the Klopp didn't mention one particular issue when the managers seemingly exchanged some heated words following the match. You get the ball, nice, but it's like bowling. "Joe is injured and probably not only a little bit".

The 21-year-old will now miss the crucial Champions League tie with Napoli next week and Premier League games over the festive period against Manchester United, Wolves, Newcastle and Arsenal.

Dyche said: "What I would say is this, and I think it's important to register: there were some excellent tackles in the game".

"So it's a fact, it's not something I wanted, you want to go on and be recognised - and we have - but we need to use this to our advantage, and I think we did (on Wednesday)".

Sean Dyche has called the challenge that led to Joe Gomez suffering a broken leg a "fantastic tackle" and dismissed Jürgen Klopp's criticisms of Burnley's approach as an attempt to "reinvent the rules". I imagine a player who seems to be an honest player, in Gomez, realised that.

"I've been speaking about it the last few weeks, and we've got to take that into Saturday".

"We send him our best if any injury occurred, but it's not from a bad tackle".

Asked where that type of performance had been all season, Dyche answered: "We've been in and out of it, but we were very good at Southampton, very good here first half against Watford, very good here against Bournemouth - there's been pockets of it, but now it's about the consistency. I didn't see anything in it other than players trying to win a football match, and showing the will, courage and demand to try to win a football match against one of the top sides in the country".
