Robbie Brady is hoping to overcome a knock as Burnley face Arsenal this weekend, but fellow Republic of Ireland international Stephen Ward remains sidelined.

The Clarets remain in the relegation zone with 12 points from 17 games in the Premier League, with their latest game a 1-0 reversal away to Tottenham Hotspur.

Brady left the field of play in the 63rd minute, but manager Sean Dyche is hoping the Dubliner will be fit to take on the Gunners.

Johann Berg Gudmundsson is also battling to prove his fitness, while Aaron Lennon is definitely out of  second trip to north London in a week after undergoing knee surgery earlier this week.

Belgium midfielder Steven Defour's calf injury is likely to preclude his involvement for a fourth straight game, while Ward (knee) and goalkeeper Nick Pope (shoulder) are also sidelined.
