Predicted Burnley and Stoke City line-ups

Burnley FC press room

Here is how we predict Burnley and Stoke City will line up this weekend:

To be played on Saturday 16th May 2015 at 14:00. Venue: Turf Moor, Burnley

Odds: Burnley 13/8, Draw 11/5, Stoke 17/10

Burnley welcome Stoke City to Turf Moor on Saturday with Sean Dyche’s side knowing they will be back in the Championship next season.

Burnley’s relegation was confirmed last weekend, despite their 1-0 victory against Hull City, but few who have seen Dyche’s men play this season will be happy to see them go.

They have given everything week in, week out and it is unlikely to be long before they are back in the top flight once more.

Stoke have impressed this season under Mark Hughes and their 3-0 victory against Tottenham Hotspur last time out proved how far they have come.

Now ninth in the table, the Potter look every inch an established Premier League club and it will be interesting to see how they build on that next year.

In early team news, Burnley are without Kevin Long and Dean Marney while Sam Vokes is rated at 75 per cent to recover from injury.

As for Stoke, they are without Asmir Begovic, Victor Moses and Bojan Krkic.
