Picking the Most Likely Burnley Lineup to Host Tottenham in the Premier League on Saturday

?Sean Dyche will be hoping his Burnley side are refreshed after the international break and can put an end to their six match winless run in the league with a home win over Spurs on Saturday.

Goalkeeper

?Tom Heaton didn’t play for England during the international break so he will be ready and raring to go again for Burnley, but he faces a tough task in keeping a clean sheet against a talented and effective Tottenham attack.

Defence

Michael Keane returns to the team from picking up his first England caps, and he looked assured on the international stage. Dyche will be hoping Keane will lead by example and continue his good form and puts in a solid performance against the second most potent attack in the league.

Burnley haven’t won in six Premier League games and will hope to end that run on Saturday, starting with a solid defence.

?Robbie Brady captained the Republic of Ireland to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of minnows Iceland midweek. The winger, and Jeff Hendrick, who also featured for Ireland, will be hoping to put that performance behind them and focus on securing Burnley’s Premier League survival.

Scott Arfield returns from Canada duty after helping his adopted nation to a 1-1 draw against Scotland. Dyche will be desperate for Arfield and Hendrick to perform in the heart of midfield and help secure a win for Burnley.

?Ashley Barnes and Andre Gray had the international break off so will be full of energy and desperate to end Burnley’s winless run. 

Barnes has five goals in the league this season, compared to Gray’s eight. The pair will work together to break down the second best defence in the league this season.
