Sports Mole takes on in-depth look at how Burnley could line up in Monday's Premier League encounter with Fulham.

Burnley will head to Craven Cottage on Monday evening knowing that a win would relegate Fulham and secure their status as a Premier League club for at least one more season.

The Clarets will again be without the services of Robbie Brady and Kevin Long for this match, but midfielder Dale Stephens is in contention, having shaken off a knock.

Sean Dyche's side have also been handed a huge boost in the final third of the field, with leading goalscorer Chris Wood passed fit despite suffering a dead leg in the 2-1 loss to West Ham United last time out.

Wood has scored 11 Premier League goals this term, and the 29-year-old scored an impressive treble during the 4-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers on April 25.

Jay Rodriguez and Ashley Barnes both came off the bench in the defeat to the Hammers, but Matej Vydra is expected to keep his spot alongside Wood as part of a front two.

Dyche could ultimately decide to select the same XI from the clash with David Moyes's side, meaning that Johann Berg Gudmundsson might have to accept a spot on the bench once again.

Josh Brownhill should join Ashley Westwood, Jack Cork and Dwight McNeil as part of a midfield four, while the defence and goalkeeper will remain unchanged from Monday's fixture with West Ham.

Burnley possible starting lineup: Pope; Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor; Brownhill, Cork, Westwood, McNeil; Wood, Vydra
