Sean Dyche has a decision to make in goal with Joe Hart pushing to start Burnley's Premier League opener against Southampton on Sunday.

Sean Dyche has a decision to make in goal with Joe Hart pushing to start Burnley’s Premier League opener against Southampton on Sunday.

New signing Hart made his debut and kept a clean sheet in Thursday’s Europa League draw at Basaksehir Istanbul but Tom Heaton has now recovered from a calf injury. Last season’s number one Nick Pope is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines after an operation on his dislocated shoulder.

Striker Chris Wood could return after missing out on Thursday with an infected insect bite while defender Ben Gibson will hope to make his debut after moving from Middlesbrough.

Fellow signing Matej Vydra is likely to have to bide his time while Robbie Brady and Steven Defour are out.
