Burnley’s starting line-up includes goalkeeper No. 1 Nick Pope. Full-backs Lowton and Taylor wear number 2 and number 3, respectively. Midfield duo Tarkowski and Ben Mee wear 5 and 6. Central midfield duo Jack Cork and Brownhill wear number 4 and 8 respectively. Wingers Gudmundsson and McNeil have the perfect number 7 and 11 jerseys. Meanwhile, striker Chris Wood carries the number 9 and striker Ashley Barnes carries the number 10.
