Swansea City vs Burnley lineups confirmed as Vincent
Unclear whether the Swansea man is being reprimanded by the official for something that was muttered, or perhaps going down too easily after a couple of challenges. Either way, he evades a yellow. Barrow is causing plenty of problems again with this pace, this time darting towards a seemingly lost cause in behind the Burnley defence. Heaton looks like he is going to claim, but Lowton takes no chances and pulls rank on his goalkeeper by clearing high into the stand before a threat can be made on goal. JUST WIDE FROM ROUTLEDGE! Barrow pops up on the left wing this time and finds a yard of space to send an outstanding cross deep to the other end of the box.

Naughton strides forward from his position at right-back and makes his way into the final third unopposed before firing a wicked cross to the back post. Unfortunately for Swansea, it is the smallest player on the pitch, Montero, who meets it, and can only manage a weak header into the arms of Heaton. Twenty minutes remaining in this extremely tight clash between Burnley and Swansea, so we still have time for a winner even if both sides can certainly put a claim in that they should be ahead.
SAAAAVE FROM FABIANSKI! The Poland international is called into meaningful action for the first time in the match now as Burnley counterattack with pace through Marney and Gray, with the latter driving into the box before smashing a strike towards the bottom corner. Solid save in the end from the goalkeeper, before the visitors eventually clear the danger. There is a small break in play at the moment as Barrow receives a ticking off from the referee for an unknown offence.
It is going to take a moment of magic, or a mistake, to open this one up you would feel! Just about the most deserved yellow card you will see in this opening day of the Premier League as Ward cynically halts a promising-looking Swansea counter by hacking the pacey Montero down from behind. MISS OF THE GAME FROM FERNANDEZ! Sigurdsson whips a corner into the six-yard box and it is flicked on to the Spanish defender, who only needs to divert a strike on goal from three yards out. Somehow, SOMEHOW he manages to hit his attempt straight over the bar, which was actually harder to do! A quite incredible sitter! Another change from Swansea as Jefferson Montero enters the action in place of Barrow. The recently introduced Sigurdsson can make an instant impact now as he is gifted a free-kick opportunity from 25 yards out.
The Iceland international gets a strike up and down over the ball, but Heaton reads it and vigilantly palms behind even though it may have been going behind. The Burnley goalkeeper, rightfully, taking no chances! Burnley have a real spring in their step at the moment and look the most likely team to break this solid deadlock and net the opener. Boyd and Vokes have a couple of attempts on goal in quick succession, but Swansea survive as the first is blocked and the second is lashed wide. Leon Britton leaves the action to be replaced by Gylfi Sigurdsson, which will probably signal Fer moving into a deeper position.

His team-mate reaches it, but doesn't get a decent connection on his volley and ends up sending in just wide of the left-hand post! Heaton was certainly struggling to get across! We haven't seen too much from Gray so far, who is of course making his Premier League debut with Burnley this afternoon. He does get a small glimpse of goal after latching on to a pass in behind the Swansea defence, but the resulting volleyed attempt at goal goes high and wide into the stand. Disappointing, but a tough opportunity.
GOOOOAAAAAAAAALLLLL FOR SWANSEA! THE DEADLOCK IS BROKEN! Montero drives towards the opposition defence before clipping a cross into the box for Llorente, who sees his header saved! Fer is perfectly positioned to smash in the rebound, though! One-nil! Lowton is booked for that challenge on Montero. Free-kick to Swansea in another great position here as Montero skips past the challenge of Lowton, only to be brought down by the retreating tackle from the Burnley man. Can Sigurdsson do better from this one? Another half chance for Llorente now, with the big Spaniard once again getting the better of the Burnley defence aerially.
Just the one minute of added time here which sounds about right as we haven't seen too many stoppages. CLEARED OFF THE LINE FROM BURNLEY! Routledge swings a corner into the box and it falls fortuitously to Amat, who smuggles an attempt low towards the bottom corner. Luckily for the home side, Arfield is perfectly positioned on the post to make the VITAL block! That is why you put people on the posts at set-pieces, ladies and gentleman! First booking of the match goes to Jones for a late challenge. Vokes and Gray have been terribly starved of service so far this afternoon, and as coming deeper and deeper into midfield to try and get involved in the play. The former does well on this occasion as he earns a throw-in deep down the left wing after skipping past a couple of opposition tackles.
Keane does just enough to put him off, though, which results in the headed opportunity going harmlessly into the arms of Fabianski between the sticks. Story of the match for the former Sevilla man, really! J. Guðmundsson S. Arfield First alteration of the match from Dyche here as he introduces new signing, Johann Gudmundsson, to the action in place of Scott Arfield. Gray may not have found the net as of yet, but can be fairly content with his maiden appearance in the Premier League so far. He has not looked out of his depth at all and is proving to be quite the handful to this Swansea defence, with yet another strike on goal flashing just wide of the post.

A promising move for Swansea comes to a swift end, though, as an attempted pass with the outside of his right foot goes disappointingly straight to the feet of the home side. Gray peels away from his position at centre-forward to pick up the ball down the right-hand side. He attempts to shake off the attentions of Kingsley, but the young Scot does really well in the end to stick out a leg and block the cross into the box, conceding a corner in the process. We are back under way in this Premier League clash.
WHAT A SAVE FROM FABIANSKI!! Vokes, who has been in and out of prominence, meets a bouncing ball perfectly on the edge of the box with a volley which looks destined to find the bottom corner, but he is thwarted by the Swansea goalkeeper, who somehow gets across to make the stop! A dodgy moment from Fabianski here as he makes the ill-advised decision to dash off his line all the way out to the touchline to try and stop Gray latching on to a loose ball. He eventually makes a decent clearance, but there was also a couple of hints of a handball too! WHAT A MISS FROM KEANE! Sean Dyche will be wondering just how his team aren't ahead here, as the defender meets a perfect corner to the back post with the entire goal in which to aim, only to completely take his eye off the ball and not make a connection. Even if he let it hit his face it would have been a goal! Unbelievable! Jones hits the subsequent free-kick from the Amat foul to the front post, but it is blocked behind for a corner by Fer.

Burnley are peppering the Swansea box with a plethora of crosses at the moment, with the latest coming once again from Jones. This time, the former Manchester United man hits a teasing corner-kick to the front post which proves to be very awkward for Fabianski, who is forced into conceding another corner. The home side definitely on top at the moment! The Burnley fans are trying their best catalyse some kind of entertainment out there at the moment, but you can probably understand the fact neither side is going all-out for goals in this first half.
As the match goes on hopefully we will see a lot more goalmouth action! Burnley get a set-piece opportunity now after a cheaply conceded foul by Swansea a few yards in from the left touchline. Jones is tasked with it, but is floated into the box without much authority which allows Fabianski to easily come off his line to claim out of the air. Boyd receives the ball to feet and moves into space unopposed before passing wide for Lowton. The Burnley right-back cuts back inside on his left foot, but the subsequent cross into the box is poor and easily intercepted by Kingsley, who passes out from the back to Britton. Mee gives the ball away in a horrible position in midfield and Llorente takes advantage to win possession and move forward into the danger area.

Some goals, please! Half-time at Turk Moor. Burnley and Swansea are playing with a little bit of early season nerves so far, and go into the break at a 0-0 stalemate with not too many goalscoring chances to speak of. Gray has had a couple of decent attempts for the hosts, while Amat saw a strike cleared off the line late in the half for the Swans, but unfortunately for the viewing public it has not been a classic opener to the campaign so far. Second period to come.
Expect attack versus defence in these latter stages with the hosts striving for their opening goal of the season! Booking for Fernandez. You have to hand it to the Swansea boss, Guidolin, as his substitutions have affected the play positively this afternoon. Montero, in particular, has used his electric pace to really cause Burnley problems, and it actually resulted in the opening goal which will likely be the winner! L. Jutkiewicz David Jones Last throw of the dice from Dyche as he withdraws Jones for Lukas Jutkiewicz. Àngel Rangel W.
