SEAN Dyche has dismissed suggestions of touchline clashes with Chelsea as “bizarre” after Burnley’s heated 1-1 Premier League draw at Stamford Bridge.

Clarets first-team coach Steve Stone was overheard telling Chelsea’s bench to “show some respect” amid a terse first-half exchange in west London.

Both sets of coaches appeared animated and frustrated, but after a cut-and-thrust encounter, both Dyche and Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel moved to downplay any incidents.

Matej Vydra’s late equaliser denied leaders Chelsea a fifth-straight Premier League win after the hosts had gone ahead through Kai Havertz’s header.

And Burnley boss Dyche was left confused as to why the questions after the game were on off-field incidents.

“I didn’t see or say anything at all," said Dyche. "I have no clue where these questions are coming from. I have no clue what a flash point is any more.

“I’m actually confused. I don’t remember hardly anything happening to be honest. I don’t remember any flash points that’s for sure.

“That’s standard stuff, two groups of people trying to win a football game. I actually have no clue where this line of question’s coming from.

“It’s just two groups of staff trying to win a football match.

“I’m not hard at all! I’m just a normal bloke trying to win a football match, that’s it.”

Chelsea boss Tuchel lamented the Blues’ inability to cross the line in a “lucky” draw for the battling Clarets – an assessment that met no quarrel from Dyche.

“I can understand him being frustrated,” Dyche added. "Any team that makes that many chances I can understand him being frustrated.

"If the shoe’s on the other foot I’d be thinking, how didn’t we win that.”
