Burnley’s summer signing Johann Berg Gudmundsson could make his debut but Liverpool loanee Jon Flanagan won’t feature because of a lack of fitness.
The Clarets hope Stephen Ward will be available despite a recent hamstring problem, but Ashley Barnes may miss out with a similar injury.
Swansea’s record signing Borja Baston will not be involved at Turf Moor.
Wales full-back Neil Taylor will also not be included as he builds up fitness after his post-Euro 2016 break.
However, Gylfi Sigurdsson will be among the substitutes even though he has only just returned to training following Iceland’s summer exploits.
While promoted sides usually strengthen Burnley have seen a Summer of inactivity with only Jon Flanagan coming in on loan from Liverpool and a couple of players from Charlton.
Sean Dyche has once again shown faith in the players that earned promotion but you do have to wonder if that will be enough.
Swansea will now have to get used to life without captain Ashley Williams and this game could already have the makings of a six pointer.
My money is on a draw at Turf Moor.
