The Belgian was forced off against Crystal Palace last weekend.

Burnley midfielder Steven Defour is touch and go for Saturday’s Premier League clash with Brighton at Turf Moor.

The Belgian was forced off against Crystal Palace last weekend after feeling discomfort in the same knee that kept him out for more than six months and missed the midweek loss to Liverpool, but the Clarets are hopeful it is nothing serious.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche has no new injury concerns, with defender Stephen Ward (knee) and goalkeeper Nick Pope (shoulder) continuing to make progress.

Brighton will check on forward Glenn Murray (shoulder) and winger Jose
Izquierdo (knee) ahead of the Premier League match against Burnley.

Midfielder Dale Stephens is available again after completing a three-match ban, but defender Shane Duffy will now start a suspension following his red card in the midweek win over Crystal Palace.
