Burnley 1-1 West Ham United

Andy Carroll
Andy Carroll was sent off after he was booked twice in the space of 99 seconds

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic was "disappointed and angry" with Andy Carroll after the striker was sent off in their draw at Burnley.

Chris Wood's header five minutes from time cancelled out Michail Antonio's opener to rescue a point for Burnley as West Ham played the majority of the contest with 10 men.

Carroll, 28, was sent off in the 27th minute when he was booked twice in the space of 99 seconds for using his elbow.

"I have no complaints with Andy's sending off - he's an experienced player. I'm very disappointed and angry," Bilic said.

"With the second one you can't do that, especially two minutes after you've been booked. It was an unbelievable bad decision (from Carroll). Losing Andy was a big blow for us."

Antonio put West Ham ahead when he capitalised on Ben Mee's misjudgement of Joe Hart's clearance to touch the ball past Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope and slide it into the empty net.

Burnley felt they should have had the chance to equalise from the penalty spot after Hammers keeper Hart caught Wood without appearing to make contact with the ball.

But West Ham otherwise defended with composure and resilience before Wood levelled late on when he headed home Johann Gudmundsson's cross.

'Mixed emotions' for Bilic after late equaliser

England forward Carroll was sent off for two bookings in quick succession for the same offence of using his elbow.

There appeared little intent from Carroll to injure either Mee or James Tarkowski, with his eyes seemingly fixed on the ball.

But after receiving the first booking from Stuart Attwell, Bilic's post-match assessment suggests he feels the former Liverpool striker should have shown more composure.

Carroll was fortunate West Ham responded positively to being reduced to 10 men with a stout defensive display, but his dismissal patently made it more difficult for the Hammers to hold onto the lead given to them by Antonio.

And with mental and physical levels low after playing for so long a man down, former Leeds forward Wood stepped in to deny the visitors three points.

Clarets still lacking goals at home

Two goals at home in four matches is a modest return for Burnley at Turf Moor so far this season.

Clarets boss Sean Dyche has maintained he is not concerned how or where his side's points are acquired and given their impressive start to the season, it is harsh to be critical.

Nevertheless their profligacy on home turf is an issue Dyche will surely be eager to resolve sooner rather than later because even against 10 men Burnley struggled to break down an organised West Ham side.

It was not until half-time that Dyche deviated from his trusted 4-4-1-1 formation, but even then they were largely restricted to long-range efforts.

Dyche's trademark tactics and selection have served him well at Burnley - witness their comfortable position in the top half of the table - but finding the net with more frequency on their own patch will likely be a priority for him.

Quality key to late Burnley equaliser - Dyche

Burnley manager Sean Dyche: "They sort of semi-camped in with 10 men. Generally we had a lot of the ball but it can be difficult to break them down.

"A fine bit of quality eventually got us a goal and it was a fine goal. It looked to me we could have had a penalty on Chris Wood too. We didn't get it but you'd hope on another day we do.

"I'm very pleased. The way we're going in general is good - I'm certainly not disappointed with that."

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic: "It's a good point for us. Mixed emotions because we were close to three points but it's not easy with 10 men.

"Even so we could have scored another in the second half and then we defended well.

"I can only praise my players for their effort, quality and performance. When we had 11 v 11 we were much better today; dangerous and attacking."
