Things have been going from bad to worse for Vincent Kompany since the start of the year as his Burnley side have yet to win a game in 2024. The Clarets have been struggling all season but performances in recent weeks have hit a new low, with Arsenal running riot a few weeks ago as they won 5-0 before Crystal Palace eased to a 3-0 win last weekend. Josh Brownhill also saw red in that game and will miss the visit of Bournemouth. 

While Burnley appear doomed to suffer an immediate return to the Championship, Bournemouth will see the trip to Lancashire as the perfect opportunity to end their own poor run of results. The Cherries have earned plaudits for their style of football under Andoni Iraola but have not won a league game since December 26 and went out of the FA Cup at the hands of Leicester City in midweek. They will hope star striker Dominic Solanke is fit to return after injury and can add to his already impressive haul of 14 Premier League goals. 

Here’s how they line up: 

Burnley XI: Trafford, Vitinho, O'Shea, Esteve, Taylor, Assignon, Berge, Cullen, Odobert, Fofana, Bruun Larsen. 

Substitutes: Cork, Gudmundsson, Rodriguez, Benson, Ekdal, Amdouni, Ndayishimiye, Delcroix, Muric.

Bournemouth XI: Neto, Smith, Zabarnyi, Senesi, Kerkez, Christie, Cook, Semenyo, Kluivert, Tavernier, Solanke. 

Substitutes: Mepham, Faivre, Ouattara, Scott, Sinisterra, Unal, Billing, Travers, Kinsey-Wellings.
