Burnley, who sit 11th, are targeting a third win in four Premier League home matches and a move into the top half.

Everton lie two points behind their hosts and are aiming to halt a run of three straight defeats.

Team news

Burnley midfielder Jack Cork is ruled out after sustaining a minor fracture to his shoulder. It will be only the second match he has missed for the Clarets since the summer of 2017.

Danny Drinkwater (ankle) remains sidelined but manager Sean Dyche has no other injury concerns.

Marco Silva has confirmed that both Andre Gomes (rib) and Theo Walcott (concussion) are available for Everton.

However Saturday's match comes too soon for midfielder Jean-Philippe Gbamin (thigh), who returned to light training on Thursday.
