Match Preview – Burnley home team news

Injuries, Match Preview, NewsNow

Theo Walcott is still missing from the squad for Burnley at the weekend, but in better news Olivier Giroud is ok to play despite going off against Swansea with a knock last weekend.

Bellerin, Le Coq and Gibbs all return to the squad after injury problems, and the gaffer also revealed that Per Mertesacker is on his way back, the BFG just a couple of weeks away from action now.

Theo’s calf injury has kept him out since our back to back defeats at Everton and Man City, and means his coffee machine collection remains at one for the season.

Danny Welbeck remains in contention for a place in the side after his comeback, and Lucas Perez will also be giving Le Boss a selection headache ahead of the game which kicks off at 14:15 UK time, on Sky Sports… and IT’S LIVE!

Last time we played Burnley we got very lucky with that hand of Kos goal at the death which gave us all three points, so we’ll need to be focused to win this one.

With Spurs away at Man City, it’s vital we take advantage of dropped points, and with relatively simple home games for Liverpool and Chelsea, and Stoke away for Manchester United, nothing else but three points will do this weekend.
