Burnley will face Frank Lampard on Saturday in search of his first victory in a game which will be screened on Sky Sports Box Office as a Premier League Pay-Per-View

The Clarets seek their first top-flight victory after taking just one point in their first five games

But Sean Dyche’s side improved their performances in a 0-0 draw with West Brom and a 1-0 home loss to Spurs in their last two games

Yet Frank Lampard’s side remain formidable opponents after securing a Champions League victory over Krasdnodar in midweek despite having lost only once in the league this season.

Dyche will be without Erik Pieters, Phil Bardsley, Ben Mee and Jack Cork while Johann Berg Gudmundsson is in doubt

The match will take place against the backdrop of a Turf Moor buyout discussion with Egyptian businessman Mohamer El Kashashy and sports lawyer Chris Farnell convinced they will strike a deal

The duo have pioneered the race, which also includes US investment firm ALK Capital LLC, and El Kashashy and Farnell are confident they can take control.

It is understood that the couple have signed a Sale and Purchase Agreement (SPA), provided proof of funding, and are awaiting approval for testing from owners and directors to secure the deal.

Kick-off at Turf Moor is 3 p.m. and the game is shown live on Sky Sports Box Office

He was one of the Ajax stars who stormed the Champions League semi-finals in 2019 and has impressed with his limited appearances at Chelsea so far

Egyptian businessman Mohamer El Kashashy and sports lawyer Chris Farnell are convinced of Burnley Football Club takeover

The duo have met Mike Garlick and it is understood that the couple have signed a Sale and Purchase Agreement (SPA), provided proof of funding, and are awaiting test clearance from owners and directors for a attempted redemption which is worth around £ 200 million

The verdict of the test will likely be decided within the next few weeks and if the pair is successful, the takeover should be over
