With just 30 goals in 33 matches, the Clarets are the joint-third-lowest scorers in the Premier League with relegation-threatened Fulham and Sheffield United the only sides to score less than them.

Last Sunday did see an unusually free-scoring performance from Sean Dyche’s men, with Chris Wood hitting a hat-trick in a comprehensive 4-0 win over Wolves.

For the most part, however, Burnley have been forced to bide their time for chances in games this season, and have averaged just 40.58% possession in the Premier League.
