Sean Dyche has a pretty distinctive and audible voice at the best of times, and in the empty stadiums of this season it’s particularly easy for those in the press area to hear what he’s saying.
His first half complaints about a soft foul that Marcos Alonso bought caused some mirth, but it was his exchange with Robbie Brady just now that was the pick of the bunch today.
Dyche to Brady after that last Hudson-Odoi overlap: “Robbie!!! Tune in!!!l”
Brady: “I know where he f**king is, I just can’t stop him. What do you want me to do?” #CFC

Liam Twomey of the Athletic noted that Dyche had told his winger to switch on to the threat of Callum Hudson-Odoi overlapping.
Brady replied he was aware of the danger – “I just can’t stop him.”
There wouldn’t have been many who could stop him today. He was in fine form again, playing as a right wing back, and the trouble he was causing his opposite number is evident from Dyche’s complaints, and Brady’s replies.
CHO was subbed off halfway through the second half, presumably to keep him fresh for Tottenham. Watch out Sergio Reguilon.
