Clarets boss Sean Dyche has confirmed that midfielder Steven Defour is to miss Sunday's Premier League trip to Anfield.

The Belgian picked up the injury during the 1-0 victory over champions Leicester City and has since missed the last five fixtures, the Clarets boss said "Steven won't make it, Steven Defour still on his way back, we've got to make sure with that one, slightly longer than we had hoped for".

Clarets midfielder Johann Berg Gudmundsson has also been ruled out of contention "Johann equally won't make it, still have a little bit of trouble with his medial ligaments so we're trying to get that to calm down, when it does, usually, and in our experience they settle down, once they have it's quite a quick recovery period after that, but at the minute still niggling so he won't be fit."
