Burnley vs Crystal Palace: Sean Dyche's Best Available Clarets Lineup

Sean Dyche and his men welcome Crystal Palace to Turf Moor on Saturday in what is expected to be a close affair.


The two sides are only separated by goal difference in the Premier League standings, with Palace 14th and one place better off than the Clarets.


A win for Burnley would further establish the gap the between themselves and the bottom three.


Here's a look at the team Dyche could select for Saturday's game.

3. Goalkeeper & Defenders

Tom Heaton (GK) - Much of Burnley's recent good form has been accredited to the great displays from their English goalkeeper.


Phil Bardsley (RB) - An ever-present for Sean Dyche, Bardsley will be in for a difficult afternoon as he attempts to deal with the Palace wingers.


James Tarkowski (CB) - Tarkowski will have the job of keeping new Palace striker Michy Batshuayi quiet for the full 90 minutes. 


Ben Mee (CB) - The 29-year-old has featured in every game so far this season in the Premier League and will look to continue that on Saturday.


Charlie Taylor (LB) - Dealing with Zaha will be a big problem for Burnley and Taylor will be the main main tasked with that role.

2. Midfielders

Robbie Brady (RM) - The Irishman featured against Newcastle in midweek action and will hope to start again in the absence of Aaron Lennon.


Jack Cork (CM) - One of the hardest working players in the Premier League, Cork will be on the hunt for possession throughout the game.


Jeff Hendrick (CM) - Hendrick will hope the bridge the gap between midfield and attack as he looks to get his side on the front foot.


Johann Gudmundsson (LM) - The Iceland international will look to use his pace to put Palace on the back foot as much as possible.

1. Attackers

Ashley Barnes (ST) - The striker man is in red hot form and will look to add to his eight Premier League goals this season.


Chris Wood (ST) - One goal off his partner, Wood and Barnes have a phenomenal relationship and will look to use their chemistry to hurt the Eagles defence.
