The quirks of the fixture list forced them to play four successive away league matches before the international break.
There will be plenty of focus on Burnley centre-back Michael Keane, who won his first two England caps during the international break, against Germany and Lithuania.
Keane is out of contract at the end of next season and is unlikely to sign a new deal, meaning Burnley may well look to sell the 24-year-old to ensure they get a fee for him.
“There are so many stories about our players. It’s good in one sense that people think highly of your players; not just him, but a number of players,” Burnley manager Sean Dyche said.
“There’s always that challenge of all the stories and everything that goes with it. He’s earned the right to be considered as a fine centre-half, because he is one.”
