    Burnley manager Sean Dyche has said he is unlikely to blood any youngsters against Brighton despite a number of injury absentees.

    Ashley Barnes, Ben Mee, Matt Lowton, Jack Cork and Charlie Taylor are all unavailable.

    Brighton, who secured their Premier League safety with a 0-0 draw against Newcastle on Monday, have no fresh injury concerns.

    Jose Izquierdo and Steven Alzate remain sidelined.


    Steven Wyeth: If Burnley break a recent habit of losing their final game of the season, they will set a new club Premier League points record.

    A Nick Pope clean sheet contributing to that milestone would guarantee him at least a share of the Golden Glove. That award has only previously been won by goalkeepers at Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United.

    The season's culmination is not without objectives for Brighton. Victory secures their best Premier League tally of 41 points, potentially good enough to match the 15th place finish of their first campaign back in the top flight two years ago.


    • Six of the past eight league meetings have been drawn.
    • Burnley are unbeaten in all five top-flight meetings, winning two and drawing three.

    • Burnley have lost just one of their past 15 Premier League games, winning eight and drawing six.
    • They have conceded just 11 goals during that run, five of which came in one match against Manchester City.
    • They could equal their Premier League club record of eight matches without defeat.
    • Only Manchester City have kept more league clean sheets than Burnley's 15 this season.
    • Dwight McNeil could become only the sixth player to start all 38 Premier League games in a season before turning 21, joining Gary Kelly, Robbie Fowler, Frank Lampard, Wayne Bridge and Wayne Routledge.

    • With five draws and one victory, Brighton are currently on a top-flight club record of six away games without defeat.
    • They have only conceded one away goal since the season restarted.
    • Albion have drawn a joint Premier League-high 14 matches this season.
    • They haven't won their final league game of a season since 2013-14.
    • Brighton are unbeaten in all 10 league matches in which Neal Maupay has scored.
    • Davy Propper could make his 100th Premier League appearance.
    ● A 21-year-old man from Shoreham was arrested at the Amex stadium on suspicion of throwing a pie at Wilfried Zaha ●
