Burnley could welcome back Sam Vokes (stomach muscle) but fellow striker Chris Wood (hamstring) is a doubt.
Newcastle United are without Paul Dummett (hamstring), but Dwight Gayle and Massadio Haidara are fit.
The home side is unbeaten in each of the last eight league meetings between Burnley and Newcastle United (five wins, three draws).
Newcastle's 14 points from their first nine Premier League matches is the best points tally at this stage of a campaign by a newly-promoted side since West Ham United in 2012/13 (14).
Burnley have faced the most shots in the PL this season (170) but no side have allowed their opponents to score with a lower proportion of their shots than them (5%).
Only one of the eight PL goals that Newcastle have conceded this season has come in the first half, a PL-low.
Sean Dyche: "The kind of building process that's been done on and off the pitch here is good for everyone, I think, and for the game."
Rafael Benitez: "Burnley are well-organised, they are in a good position in the table and they are playing with confidence."
