Burnley v Fulham: match preview | Premier League


Burnley look like a side reborn in their past few games and Fulham, although much improved after a dire start to the season, face a hard battle to take anything from a side who have not lost at Turf Moor since October. Sean Dyche will be encouraged by the news that the takeover of the club by ALK Capital has been completed and they have pledged to back him in the January transfer window. Dwight McNeil and Jay Rodriguez could come back for the home side after injury but Charlie Taylor is definitely out after pulling his hamstring against Sheffield United on Tuesday. Scott Parker will have Mario Lemina available after the on-loan midfielder missed the game against his parent club Southampton and Ivan Cavaleiro and Kenny Tete may also be fit enough to return.
