Burnley are without Ben Mee (calf) and Ashley Barnes, whose shoulder injury is not as bad as first feared and should be fine for pre-season.

Manager Sean Dyche will consult Scott Arfield and Dean Marney to decide if either play a part in their final match before departing the club.

AFC Bournemouth trio Harry Arter (Achilles), Junior Stanislas and Adam Smith (both knee) will miss the final match of the season.

Eddie Howe also says he will need to make checks on a couple of minor knocks to his players.

Did you know?

AFC Bournemouth are targeting their first away win at Burnley in all competitions at the 15th attempt, having drawn six and lost eight of their 14 previous visits.

The Clarets are guaranteed a seventh-place finish - their highest final position in the top flight since 1973/74, when they ended up sixth.

Joshua King has scored in each of his last two Premier League appearances against Burnley. Only against Swansea has he scored in three consecutive matches in the competition.

Both Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood have scored nine PL goals this season. Only two Burnley players have ever reached double figures in a single campaign, Danny Ings with 11 in 2014/15 and Sam Vokes with 10 in 2016/17.
