BURNLEY boss Sean Dyche has declared goalkeeper Nick Pope 100 per cent fit - but the Clarets chief is not fazed about which two keepers are in the squad for this weekend’s visit of Spurs.

Tom Heaton will keep his place in goal after a string of impressive performances since returning to the side, while Joe Hart, who played in the first 19 Premier League fixtures of the season, has been on the bench in recent weeks.

Pope has not played a top-flight game since the final day of last season but featured twice for the Clarets in the FA Cup last month.

Dyche now faces a call on which keeper to include on the bench as well as in the starting XI.

“He is chomping at the bit,” said the Burnley boss of Pope. “But there is a system in place and Tom has got the shirt. I don’t think anyone would question that, including Popey.

“Joe has been a good servant for us so far this season. He was a bit unfortunate to come out but I had to make a decision and then Popey is working behind that and that is the way it is.

“Popey is pushing all the time with the way he is performing in training and the way he is going about it as I expected him to because he is a very good professional. He is pushing all the time so it is a real, real healthy competition.”

Asked if it was also now a big call on which keeper to include on the bench, as well as in the team, Dyche added: “It is just the job, I would prefer to have those big calls than not have them.

“We are still waiting for that on the outfield side with injuries.”
