  • Burnley boss Sean Dyche said speculation linking him with the Leicester vacancy was "a paper story" and that no approach had been made to his club.Dyche, 46, the third-longest serving current Premier League manager, has emerged as the bookmakers' favourite to replace Craig Shakespeare, who was sacked by the 2016 champions on Tuesday."First of all, I don't want any manager to lose their job. It's not the first time I've been linked," Dyche told a press conference before Saturday's trip to Manchester City."In a way, you're flattered because it's some form of recognition.

  • Andy Carroll sees red as Burnley snatch late point against West HamAndy Carroll left West Ham high and dry as his reckless dismissal left them scrambling for a 1-1 draw against Burnley.Carroll was touted for an England recall by team-mate Aaron Cresswell last week, but that particular bandwagon hit the skids as soon as the striker picked up two cautions in as many first-half minutes, elbowing James Tarkowski in the air then barrelling into Ben Mee moments later.That left the Hammers with more than an hour to protect Michail Antonio's freak goal - slotted into an open net after Mee and goalkeeper Nick Pope both failed to connect with the ball - and Chris Wood pounced late to deny the visitors their first back-to-back wins of the season.The New Zealand striker's fourth of the season places him as a considerably more productive target man than Carroll, while West Ham fans must dream about him being as reliable a member of their dressing room as the tireless Antonio.His 19th..
