Chris Hughton thinks his side deserved more at Turf Moor

Liverpool defender Joe Gomez could be out for six weeks after fracturing his left leg during Wednesday's victory over Burnley.

"I said after the first challenge, I don't know who did it, sliding tackle from six or seven yards, getting the ball, everybody likes it, I said to the ref "it's no foul but please tell them you can not do that", the German said in his post-match news conference. You get the ball, nice, but it's like bowling. It happened four or five times.

Burnley will check on midfielder Steven Defour, who missed Wednesday's game as a precaution, six games into a comeback from his knee problems.

"I was a little confused". Dyche told his post match press conference.

"There were some excellent tackles last night", Dyche said.

The only one that was questionable was Bardo's [Phil Bardsley].

By dismissing William Somerville roughly half an hour into the morning, he picked up his 200th Test wicket in just his 33rd Test. The other wicket of day four went to Shaheen Afridi, who now has two wickets from 16 overs, giving 55 runs in the process.

Gomez went down following a challenge from Burnley's Ben Mee - one of a number of tackles that left Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp unhappy.

"I think Ben Mee's was a fantastic tackle and I imagine that a player, who seems to me an honest player, like Gomes, I think he realised that".

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

Dyche, however, was quick to praise his team and take a dig at Klopp's side for alleged 'cheating'.

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 know that. It's part of football but it lead to the situation.
