There were some excellent tackles - Dyche defends Burnley players after Klopp criticism

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

The injury represents a significant blow to Klopp, who had complained to the match officials about the manner of Burnley's sliding tackles before Gomez was caught by Ben Mee's follow through in the 20th minute. "Joe is injured and probably not only a little bit".

The Reds now have 39 points from 15 games and sit second in the table behind Manchester City, who are also unbeaten in England's top flight along with Liverpool. "I couldn't make out what part of that was right and wrong", Dyche told the media.

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

"I think the only one that was questionable was Bardsley's".

The Reds boss clashed with Burnley counterpart Sean Dyche after the injury, saying: "I said to the referee after the first sliding tackle over six or seven yards, when he got the ball and everyone liked it: 'Please, tell them they can not do that".

He said: "He [Klopp] didn't reference Daniel Sturridge's cheating when he went down, nothing near him, and he got a free-kick for it".

"That was the message we received after".

"We send him our best if there is any injury but it wasn't 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".
