Sports Mole takes an in-depth look at how Burnley could line up for Sunday's Premier League clash with Southampton.
Burnley travel to Southampton for their Premier League clash on Easter Sunday, looking to secure back-to-back away wins in the top-flight for the first time since July 2020.
The Clarets will be without striker Ashley Barnes due to a thigh problem, while Robbie Brady picked up an injury on international duty with the Republic of Ireland.
Brady suffered a recurrence of his Achilles problem 20 minutes into the friendly with Qatar and will miss the trip to the south coast.
Sean Dyche will hand late fitness tests to left-back Charlie Taylor and midfielder Jack Cork, but the match may come too soon for both players, who are recovering from respective thigh and hamstring injuries.
Dutchman Erik Pieters is set to start once again at left-back if Taylor is not fit to play, while Josh Brownhill could keep his place in central midfield alongside Ashley Westwood, ahead of Cork.
Dwight McNeil, who scored a brilliant goal in the victory against Everton, is expected to keep his place in the starting lineup on the left wing.
Striker Chris Wood, who also scored against the Toffees and is the club's top goalscorer this season with six, is set to remain up front alongside either Jay Rodriguez or Matej Vydra.
Burnley possible starting XI: Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Pieters; Gudmundsson, Brownhill, Westwood, McNeil; Vydra, Wood
