Burnley v Swansea: Premier League preview
High-flying Burnley host Swansea City at Turf Moor on Saturday.
Prior to the international break, Burnley beat Southampton 1-0 at Saint Mary’s. Sam Vokes’ late winner earned the Clarets their second consecutive 1-0 victory.
The result leaves Burnley 7th in the Premier League table, level on 19 points with Liverpool and Arsenal.
Swansea’s woes continued, meanwhile, as they lost 1-0 at home to Brighton. Paul Clement’s side are 19th, two points away from safety.
The Swans may take some confidence from the fact that they have been slightly better on their travels than at home this season. Likewise, Burnley have also picked up more points away than they have at Turf Moor, so perhaps the result is not a forgone conclusion.

Swansea team news v Burnley
Martin Olsson is expected to be available after coming through the international break unscathed, while Leon Britton has recovered from illness.
Earlier in the week, Swansea announced that veteran full-back Angel Rangel would replace Britton as the club’s captain after Britton was given a player-coach role. 35-year-old Rangel himself is a doubt for the match with a groin strain.
Clement will be hoping to have Wilfried Bony and Renato Sanches available. The duo are both doubts due to muscle strains.
Kyle Bartley remains sidelined until December at the earliest.
Jack Cork is set to face his former side.
