Bukayo Saka should have been sent off for Arsenal in their draw with Burnley, according to Sean Dyche.
The Clarets drew 1-1 with the Gunners at Turf Moor on Saturday with plenty of talking points in the game.
After conceding early, the home side were gifted an equaliser by Granit Xhaka before chaos reigned in the final 20 minutes.
Arsenal were denied a seemingly blatant penalty before a spot kick and red card for a handball by Erik Peiters was rescinded by VAR.
Burnley boss Dyche felt his side were overlooked for a penalty and Saka should have got a second yellow.
Speaking to talkSPORT after the game, Dyche said: “If you want to go on about VAR, you know Saka and how many fouls he had today? You know he got booked and did you see the fouls after? He clipped Matej Vydra in box. You know what happens when you clip players in the box.
“I am (surprised it didn’t go to VAR) and the reason is this. I’ve spoken many times over the last year or so, people get touched on their shoulders and are going down for penalties.
“Vydra has clearly been stuck on his foot and it’s deviated his foot from striking the ball. What level of contact is it? That’s the thing we are all asking as managers.
“People are touching shoulders and legs back and it’s a penalty. He clearly hits his foot and deviates him from striking the ball properly.
“He doesn’t roll around. He doesn’t scream, there was a lot of that today. That’s a new thing that has come into the Premier League and everyone finds bizarre, including myself. He gets nothing.
“Our record of penalties in the Premier League is the lowest and we didn’t get one today.”
On the second handball incident, where Pieters had a red card rescinded, Dyche said: “The main thing about the referee getting it right or wrong, sometimes what doesn’t get factored in is the pace of the ball.
“The ball is travelling rapidly and there’s no way an outfield player can react that quick. I thought there’s no way he’s deliberately handballed that, it’s hit him rather than him handballing it.
“Then I thought it’s come off at a strange angle and turns out I was right. This is from a gut feeling.
“The only thing I would say about the referee is how quickly he sent him off. Just give yourself 20 seconds, give yourself a moment to cool down, think it through maybe.
“But on the other hand that’s what VAR is there for and it’s done its job. It’s clearly hit him on the shoulder.
“Ben Mee behind him throwing himself. He gets rewarded for doing the right things, as you should.”
The Burnley manager felt his side deserved a point for their heroic defending and for the fact they disrupted Arsenal from playing.
Dyche added: “I thought the pressing was outstanding. The mentality to do that is not easy against technical players who can play out at times.
“In the second half, it was really clever play from the two centre-forwards to open up a chance and it was the chance of the game to be fair.
“Woody (Chris Wood) has done everything he could. He’s hit it hard, low and clean and the ‘keeper has made a good save.
“That might have changed the flow of the game then they’ve had a goalmouth scramble at the end as I was watching in amazement at the fantastic nature of our defenders to make sure they get blocks on to protect the goal.
“It’s outstanding defending and that mentality has got us a point in the end.”
