“We’re ready and prepared for it, we’ve got good experience levels, I’ll listen to my players’ and staff opinions" Sean Dyche, the Burnley manager, said ahead of their games against Everton and United.

"And we’ll try and stick to a process that I believe in, We’re performing better generally, I think we are just waiting for the attacking productivity in the attacking third to return, and I believe it will and it’s how we go about our business.

“We haven’t got as many points on the board as we would have liked, but there is a good and firm mentality in the group, and we know the challenges that are in front of us."

On the other hand, Burnley succumbed to a 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United in their last away match in the league on December 4.

The Clarets are now winless in their last nine matches having recorded four draws and five defeats.
