Matt Taylor will not be available for Burnley this weekend as they get set to host Sunderland due to an Achilles issue.
Sean Dyche has bigger worries up top after losing Danny Ings to injury in last weekend's draw with Crystal Palace, but Taylor was brought in over the summer to add some top flight experience to the promoted side. The Clarets luckily have a natural option to replace Taylor as deadline day signing George Boyd will step into the wide left midfield role. Fri, Sep 19, 2014 07:03:00 PM

Matthew Taylor has been signed by Burnley to a two-year contract after West Ham released him on a free transfer.

The 32 year old veteran ends a three year spell at Boleyn Ground where he made 20 appearances in the league last season. He has a chance to receive considerable pitch time with the promoted club as long as he performs to Burnley's expectations. He has spent the majority of his career playing on the left but showed competence when given a central midfield role last year. His versatility should come in handy for Burnley.

Matthew Taylor has been enjoying his new role as a central midfielder in West Ham's rotation.

Taylor usually plays left-back or left-mid but has been recently been playing in the central part of midfield and is enjoying his new role. His fantasy production has been mediocre at best, so I would avoid him until something changes. West Ham have four wins and a draw in their last six games and have separated themselves from the relegation zone.
