Burnley piled on the pressure on the hosts and had Coach Antonio Conte's heart in his mouth when Sam Vokes headed in the 19th minute.
While accepting that his players had been affected by the situation, Conte pointed to how they have now received red cards in each of their last three games - including the FA Cup final and Community Shield against Arsenal - but stopped short of blaming his players for ill-discipline.
