Moyes will keep Burnley guessing on team selection

The manager refused to confirm whether Arthur Masuaku and Aaron Cresswell will be available for this evening’s game at Burnley instead saying they would be back by the end of this season.

Moyes brushed off any suggestion of an injury to Jesse Lingard and says he is pleased to have Craig Dawson back from suspension.

There is a suggestion Declan Rice could be risked and make his come back assuming he passes a late fitness test.

Fabian Balbuena is available after he had his red card rescinded,

Moyes was creating a little piece of mischief when he would not confirm nor deny whether Michail Antonio would be fit for the game at Turf Moor but that appears very unlikely.

Should Rice and Cresswell be declared fit we predict three changes including the return of the suspended Craig Dawson.

We have no prior inside knowledge of this evenings team selection but our prediction is below.

Claret and Hugh Predicted XI: Fabianski, Cresswell, Dawson, Diop, Ogbonna, Coufal, Rice, Soucek, Fornals, Lingard, Bowen.
