BURNLEY boss Sean Dyche has said he will monitor midfielder Jack Cork ahead of this weekend’s visit of Arsenal, while Johann Berg Gudmundsson and Robbie Brady could be in contention.

Cork has had a tightness in his hamstring, and although he managed to get through last night’s 1-1 draw with Leicester City at Turf Moor, he may have to sit out the game against the Gunners.

However, Gudmundsson and Brady could provide a double boost for Dyche after training all week.

"We are keeping an eye on Corky. He had a tight hamstring and did well to get through the game,” said Dyche.

"Johann has trained well for the last couple of days, as has Robbie Brady.

"We will have to make a judgement call to try and make sure they are overly-ready if there is such a thing.

"We will make a call on them. The next challenge is not only being clear of injury, it is true Premier League fitness.

"The good thing is these lads have come out for a couple of weeks so their base fitness should be higher than it was a few months ago.

"We will be looking to get them back into first-team action as quickly as possible.”

Dyche added there was progress for striker Ashley Barnes too.

"Barnesy is getting back on the grass in the next few days but he is not close yet but he is making good recovery time so we are happy with that,” said the Burnley boss.
