BURNLEY face a decision over the fitness of full back Phil Bardsley ahead of Monday's trip to Chelsea.

The 33-year-old has missed the last two games through injury with Matt Lowton taking his place at right back.

Peter Crouch will again be missing while Aaron Lennon is making progress, but still not close enough to return.

“We’re waiting on Bardsley, who had the accident and a gash that needed stitching. We’ll make a decision on that over the next couple of days,” said Dyche.

“Lennon is doing well. He’s not there yet, but he’s getting more active on the grass. Crouchy is back on the move, but not quite there yet.

“Defour is making good progress, he’s not going to be right for this season, but he’s in a good place. He’s had a lot to take in this season, but he’s handled it well.”

Eden Hazard will be among the main threats to Dyche's side, but the Clarets boss admits Chelsea pose quality all over the pitch.

He added: “We’re aware obviously of his talent, there’s a lot of talented players in the Premier League and he’s certainly amongst the frontrunners.

“Sometimes you can choose a player in one team and recently all of the noise was about Harry Kane and you saw what Spurs did last night.

“I think Chelsea are like that. They’ve got talent all over the pitch. He is a top player, but I think they’ve got more than just Hazard.”
