Burnley boss Sean Dyche admits he is waiting with bated breath to see if video assistant referees will bring more clarity in the Premier League next season.

The Clarets were at the centre of controversy during their 2-0 win over Cardiff at Turf Moor after the visitors were awarded a penalty when Ben Mee headed the ball onto his own arm.

But after consulation with his assistant, referee Mike Dean overturned the decision with Bluebirds boss Neil Warnock left fuming that his side were denied a golden chance to equalise.

Dyche backed the decision from officials but is wondering how VAR will impact games when it comes in for the 2019-20 campaign not just for handballs but also diving, after seeing Bournemouth's Josh King go down under challenge from Matt Lowton in the Clarets' previous game.

"Everyone is a bit confused with how they view the one on Saturday," said Dyche.

"That one would be impossible for me but I was a centre half, he’s faced it onto his arm, there’s no cleverness in it.

“If you’re a centre half and one goes past you and you see the centre forward, you might have a little panic and nudge it but there’s no intent to the moment, why would he? He has nothing to gain.

“It’s going to be interesting to see how that's officiated and a lot of other things when VAR comes in.

"Are they going to start officiating diving?

“Last week, there was a dive at Bournemouth that never got mentioned, not on Match of the Day, anywhere, a blatant dive with no contact at all. That can’t be right."
