Burnley’s Ashley Barnes was lucky not to see red during his side’s clash with Tottenham this afternoon after a horror challenge on Mousa Dembele.
Barnes but his side ahead early on, but was fortunate to stay on the field after this tackle on Dembele.
This from Barnes on Dembele is… a red card. Yellow given. pic.twitter.com/52VTswWoDl

It’s not the first time Barnes has escaped disciplinary action for a naughty challenge, either. Nemanja Matic somehow walked away from this disgusting tackle during Chelsea’s draw with Burnley in 2015. Sean Dyche needs to have a word with his player before somebody is seriously injured.
