BURNLEY host Bournemouth on Saturday looking to continue their recent fine Premier League form.

From likely line-ups to key men and the referee, all you need to know can be found below.

Key battle

Dwight McNeil is a threat for any team who comes up against and it won’t be any different on Saturday when Burnley take on Bournemouth. McNeil will be key to taking the game to the Cherries meaning Simon Francis will have his hands full.

Last meeting

A Jay Rodriguez goal right at the death meant Burnley went back to East Lancashire with all three points as they beat Bournemouth 1-0 at the Vitality Stadium in the final game before Christmas.


Mike Dean – Everyone’s favourite celebrity referee has shown 99 yellow cards and four red in 22 games this season. Has taken charge of two Clarets games this season, the 2-1 defeat at Arsenal in August and Manchester United’s 2-0 win at Turf Moor between Christmas and New Year.

Likely line-ups

Burnley: Nick Pope, Phil Bardsley, James Tarkowski, Ben Mee, Charlie Taylor, Jeff Hendrick, Jack Cork, Ashley Westwood, Dwight McNeil, Matej Vydra, Jay Rodriguez

Bournemouth: Aaron Ramsdale, Simon Francis, Nathan Ake, Adam Smith, Diego Rico, Dan Gosling, Andrew Surman, Harry Wilson, Ryan Fraser, Philip Billing, Callum Wilson


The Clarets come into this game favourites to collect all three points as they look to continue their push towards the European places in the Premier League as they are priced at 23/20. The Cherries are priced at 13/5 to win only their fourth away match of the campaign.
