It had been hoped this fixture would be a winner-takes-all showdown for the Clarets in their fight against relegation. But their fate has already been sealed after suffering a 2-1 defeat to Tottenham last time out.

Vincent Kompany’s pre-match comments

“I know this game winning or losing has a different impact than the last game against Tottenham, I get that.

“But the intention to do everything we can to win this game is so important. We have to give the team a chance to do that, so that also has to be reflected in the team selection.

“If we are treating this as the first game of next season, in terms of preparing for that season, then this is an important game and we have to go all out.

“But the main thing is winning the game, that’s our only priority.”
