Sean Dyche’s men have looked sprightly this term, though have been unable to convert enough chances to deliver them a full three points yet, and at present they languish in the bottom three.

The Clarets will have to do without star striker Danny Ings, though, as he has been ruled out of the visit of Sunderland though injury.

Sunderland will put their faith in young striker Connor Wickham, as Gus Poyet chooses him over american international Jozy Altidore, who is still yet to prove his worth in the Premier League.

The Black Cats will also be looking to start converting draws into wins, as they currently sit in 15th place with just three points. Victory for Burnley will see the side leapfrog Sunderland.
