Team News: Michael Keane absent for Burnley

An injured Michael Keane misses out as Burnley welcome West Bromwich Albion.

An injured Michael Keane misses out as Burnley welcome West Bromwich Albion to Turf Moor this afternoon.

The in-demand defender is absent with a knock and is replaced by Kevin Long - making his first Premier League start - in just the one change from the side that claimed a 2-0 victory at Crystal Palace last weekend.

Sam Vokes and Ashley Barnes continue their partnership up front, while George Boyd overcomes a knee problem to start in midfield alongside Ashley Westwood, Jeff Hendrick and Scott Arfield.

Long is joined in the back four by Matthew Lowton, James Tarkowski and Stephen Ward, with Tom Heaton retaining his place in goal.

Ben Mee once again misses out on the matchday squad as he continues to recover from a shin problem.

For the Baggies, Tony Pulis makes four changes following the 1-0 home defeat to Leicester City last weekend.

Salomon Rondon continues to lead the line in an expected 4-2-3-1 formation, with skipper James McClean and Darren Fletcher coming in for James Morrison and Nacer Chadli alongside Chris Brunt.

Jake Livermore is joined by youngster Sam Field - in for Claudio Yacob - in defensive midfield, while Bournemouth loanee Marc Wilson makes his first appearance at left-back in place of Allan Nyom.

Craig Dawson, Gareth McAuley and Jonny Evans retain their places in the back four ahead of Ben Foster in goal.

Burnley: Heaton; Lowton, Long, Tarkowski, Ward; Boyd, Westwood, Hendrick, Arfield; Vokes, Barnes
Subs: Flanagan, Defour, Gray, Brady, Gudmundsson, Darikwa, Pope

West Bromwich Albion: Foster; Dawson, McAuley, Evans, M Wilson; Field, Livermore; McClean, Fletcher, Brunt; Rondon
