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 can step into the wide left midfield role.

Sean Dyche has confirmed that Danny Ings will miss the visit of Sunderland on Saturday but his injury is not as bad as first feared.

The Clarets striker pulled up sharply during last weekend’s game at Selhurst Park but following a scan the news is a lot better than originally hoped although his hamstring injury could keep Danny Ings sidelined for around a month – Marvin Sordell is the man likely to be given his opportunity to shine. Question marks also remain over the availability of Matty Taylor who has been struggling with an ongoing Achilles problem - the injury has seen little improvement over the last few days – and George Boyd will continue to deputise following his recent move from Hull City.

Burnley squander an excellent opportunity to secure their first win of the season while Danny Ings departs with a thigh injury.

Sean Dyche was denied three points at Selhurst Park on Saturday as goalkeeper Julian Speroni saved superbly from Scott Arfield’s spot kick late in the game. However the loss of Danny Ings is a blow, the England (under 21s) forward returned early from international duty - illness - this week but had been passed fit to feature against Crystal Palace; only to be withdrawn on 42 minutes with a hamstring complaint. Although Ings is yet to find the back of the net this season his potential loss is massive for The Clarets having averaged a goal in every other match during their promotion campaign. Matty Taylor (Achilles) – who missed game week four - is targeting a return to action against Sunderland next weekend.

Burnley have acquired the services of midfielder/defender Nathaniel Chalobah from Chelsea on a loan deal that will expire in January.

Chalobah continues to be farmed out as the 19 year old develops. This follows loan spells with Watford, Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough but now Chalobah will get a chance to experience life in the top flight. It should be a positive addition to Burnley's survival hopes. With the pedigree of being Chelsea property, Chalobah should have a chance to see plenty of pitch time at Turf Moor.

Burnley have signed George Boyd from Premier League rivals Hull City.

A fee in the region of £3million is thought to have been agreed between Burnley and Hull, with Boyd signing a three-year contract at Turf Moor. The 28-year-old attacking midfielder will add some depth and Premier League experience to the Burnley squad, having featured in 28 games for Hull last season, scoring two goals.

Burnley turned in a positive defensive display and went toe to toe with Manchester United to earn their first point of the season in a 0-0 final.

Burnley are the latest to take advantage of Manchester United's "transitional period" by keeping their mistakes at a minimum and getting their share of attacking chances. Jones came closest, when he smashed the bar by way of a free kick. He would again challenge De Gea about a half hour in, but a lack of quality from the supporting attack kept Burnley from breaking through. Jones did show enough threat to creep into the fantasy radar as he currently costs just over 5m.

Burnley go goalless on their trip to Swansea city and find themselves at the bottom of the table in the early going having yet to earn a point.

Crystal Palace are level at the bottom with Burnley as both have played twice, lost both and are matched with a -3 goal difference. At least Burnley can take solace in that at leas they are not having a crisis in management like Place are. Regardless, Burnley are looking the weakest of the promoted sides and they should be battling relegation all season. Players like Lucas Jutkiewicz, who tore it up in preseason, simply cannot produce when it matters.

Burnley's Premier League return could not have started much better as they took a 1-0 lead over powerhouse Chelsea in the opening quarter-hour, but the Blues took it to Clarets quickly and often to ruin the host's opener in a 1-3 final.

Scott Arfield get the honor of scoring Burnley's first goal in their return to the top flight, as the Clarets took advantage of some poor Chelsea defending during a corner kick. Matthew Taylor picked out the open Arfield and the Scot stung it past Thibaut Courtois. The celebration was short lived however as Chelsea would equalize just 90 seconds later, then take the lead for good a few minutes after that. Burnley now head to Wales next weekend to take on a Swansea side who are likely brimming with confidence after their upset win at Old Trafford.

As Burnley begin their new season in the top flight, they will be without Sam Vokes, who's knee injury back in April continues to keep him in the physio room.

Danny Ings is the nailed-on option at forward for Burnley and after a very productive preseason, Lukas Jutkiewicz looks to join him up top in the Clarets two-striker formation. Summer signing Marvin Sordell is likely to begin the season as a bench option but it wouldn't be surprising to see him get a run in the first team at some point.

Burnley wrapped up their preseason schedule with a 3-1 defeat of Verona, as Lucas Jutkiewicz notched his 6th goal of the summer.

Jutkiewicz was then immediately subbed off for Marvin Sordell. It looks like Burnley will begin their season with two up top, with Danny Ings and Jutkiewicz the likely starters. Sordell will be pushing for starts while Sam Vokes is out indefinitely with a knee injury. In midfield, Burnley got their first glimpse of Michael Kightly in action, as he came on in the second half, battling back from a knee injury of his own. With Chelsea the Week 1 opponent, no Burnley player, even Jutkiewicz, can be recommended for more than a bench spot in fantasy teams.

In search of some Premier League experience in their promotion season, Burnley have signed former West Brom defender Steven Reid to a one year contract.

While it is hardly a headline-worthy signing, Burnley have moved to add experienced depth in the form of Steven Reid. Despite having been around forever, the 6"1" right back has rarely played a full season at any level of English football. He hasn't managed 30 appearances in a season since the 2005-06 season when he was with Blackburn and he averaged only 18 appearances per season over his for top flight campaigns with the Baggies. Experience, yes. Count on him, no.

Burnley have signed forward Marvin Sordell to a three year contract after a transfer from Bolton Wanders for a fee believed to be around £500,000.

Sordell had a cup of coffee in the top flight when he debuted for Bolton back in 2012, just a couple of months before they were relegated to the Championship. At 23 years old, he has room to grow, but his goal rate as a striker has yet to be impressive. Since his arrival at Bolton, he has tallied just 11 goals in 56 appearances between his parent club and his loan spell at Charlton Athletic. He likely will not be appearing on fantasy radars any time soon.

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.

Steven Reid is doubtful for West Brom's match against Stoke City on Championship Sunday.

Reid was forced off against Sunderland due to a groin problem and remains a doubt with just a few days between matches. Reid was replaced by Craig Dawson, who is expected to start if Reid misses out. Considering West Brom are playing against an average opponent at home, Dawson can be a good option for week 38.
May 8 - 7:06 PM

Steve Bruce handed George Boyd a start upon returning from a three match ban for spitting on Manchester City keeper Joe Hart, and the midfielder rewarded his manager by scoring the game-winner as Hull City defeated Swansea City 1-0.

Boyd had been mostly a fringe player for the Tigers this season, making several more appearances from the bench than starts heading into today's match, but Steve Bruce must have felt Boyd deserved a chance to redeem himself, and the boss was right. Liam Rosenior, who is a crossing specialist, sent another perfect cross to the back post in the latter stages of the first half, and Boyd was there to head it in. Bruce has been a joy to watch manage this season, given the talent he has to work with, changing tactics and shuffling XI's to get the most out of what he has. The win should solidify their place in the top flight next season.
