    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    Burnley are down and Danny Ings should be at a different club next season - that we knew. But well done Stoke - 51 points means a best-ever Premier League points tally. No small achievement. Glad they did it today too, as they host Liverpool next... and that'll be all about Stevie G. Talking of which, you can follow his last match at Anfield right here on the BBC Sport website. See you folks.

    ... they've nicked a free-kick - and Muniesa nearly lashes in a volley from outside the box after a defensive header from Shackell. Close that. Tom Heaton did well to collect.

    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    Late Stoke throw deep into the box...

  4. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    In spite of one glaring error, Jason Shackell has shone for Burnley today. Kieran Trippier is another who's played well, and it's certainly expected that he might move this summer.

  5. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    Peter Crouch already linking the play well, and Stoke are starting to knock it around somewhat. Hmmmm. That's disappointing. Geoff Cameron overhits a cross with Crouch primed for a giant leap.


    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    Stoke striker Peter Crouch comes on for Marko Arnautovic, who's been quiet.

  7. CLOSE!

    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    The MOTD cameras pan out and there you are, just a mile away, Burnley Cricket Club are in action. Let's hope they have a better season than their football counterparts. Mame Biram Diouf heads down and over with a brave attempt. He's really knocking on the door for Stoke now...


    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    Matt Taylor comes off for Burnley as Michael Kightly trots on.

    Mame Biram Diouf

    Mame Biram Diouf is not having his finest game today. Still time though...


    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    Stoke's Peter Odemwingie has replaced Jonathan Walters.


    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    Tom Heaton saves from point-blank range and, again, Mame Biram Diouf is the Stoke culprit. He should have lashed that home with ease. Jason Shackell is thankful for Heaton's fine recovery work after he shanked a clearance from the whipped cross of Charlie Adam.

  12. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    The sun's beating down on Turf Moor and baritone chants are ringing out around the ground. Definite end-of-season vibe.

  13. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    Hope for a Burnley goal at some point, certainly. Ashley Barnes gets to the byeline with some diligent work but his cut-back across the six-yard area is just too quick for Danny Ings to pounce on. Burnley pressing.


    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    Stoke midfielder Steven N'Zonzi picks up a yellow card for some rough and tumble. Just one too many over-zealous challenges, you feel, for Michael Oliver's liking.

  15. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    Controversy: bad backpass from Marc Muniesa leaves Jack Butland exposed... Ashley Barnes closes in to get to ball away, but Ryan Shawcross blocks him out - illegally, according to most of Turf Moor. But not for the referee.

  16. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    Stoke on the front foot - Jason Shackell blocks well from Mame Biram Diouf, whose volley could have been crashing into the net. Nothing comes from the corner, Burnley break... Ings has a shot blocked.


    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    No changes from either side at the break - Stoke on course for a Premier League record (for them) 51 points.


    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    Cheerleaders are marching about in the middle of the pitch at Turf Moor. Nobody seems to depressed by the prospect of a mammoth battle in Championship next season. How many teams are in the second tier these days... 27? 28? I jest, of course, but it's just so competitive, such a marathon. Burnley will have taken plenty from their season at the top though.


    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    Scoring goals was always going to be Burnley's problem. Imagine where they'd be without Danny Ings? Well, they'd be in the same predicament - Championship-bound - but it could have been a horror show of a season without him.

    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    Time for a brew? They've both probed - it's not been a dud!

  22. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    Danny Ings has taken a knock on the head from the wrist/elbow/arm of Ryan Shawcross. But he's picked himself up. He's okay.

  23. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    Four Burnley shots on target to Stoke's one. It's not been without goalmouth action. One minute of added time...


    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    Maybe that's why he's doing so much in defence. Stoke break quickly, Adam leading the charge, feeding Walters on the right wing, a perfectly-whipped cross lands on Diouf's head, but - with goal gaping and time to pick his spot - he can only head wide. I say 'head', though he barely made contact.

  25. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    Not many goals around the grounds and - obviously - no break in the deadlock here. It is not the most tense stalemate I've ever seen, but it is competitive. Matt Taylor probing for Burnley... to no avail. Mame Biram Diouf doing a lot of defensive work for Stoke.

  26. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    Danny Ings

    What is impressive about Danny Ings is his intelligent dropping off and link-up play. Always makes himself available and likes to get on the ball. Maybe he could cut it in Spain (David Moyes is rumoured to be interested in taking him to Real Sociedad)?

  27. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    Jonathan Walters will be kicking himself there. Charlie Adam drifts a lovely ball into the box and Walters is unmarked... but he heads straight into the arms of Burnley keeper Tom Heaton. The crowd stayed quiet there but those behind the goal will know that was a lucky escape.


    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    Mame Biram Diouf gets a yellow card just before Charlie Adam launches a wild shot from 35 yards into row H. I like to be accurate - row Z would be an exaggeration. Worth a pop, though.

  29. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    The hosts, with the crowd right behind them, are pressing so quickly every time Stoke are in possession. Ah - there we go: Charlie Adam has the ball nicked from his toes...

  30. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    Ings skids in a low shot from 20 yards but Butland is equal to it.


    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    Great block by Jack Butland from Danny Ings, who looks odds-on to score from close range! The young England keeper stands up straight until the very last minute, and then sweeps up the danger from a subsequent melee.

  32. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    Getting a bit scrappy now with fouls aplenty. Ryan Shawcross clatters through the back of Ashley Barnes and Burnley have a free-kick in a decent position; it's floated in towards the back post - bit of head tennis - but Diouf volleys away into the Lancashire sky.

  33. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    ...Charlie Adam moved the ball to the outside of the box, where Whelan was lurking, but a Burnley head averts the danger.

  34. Post update

    Burnley 0-0 Stoke

    Tripper swings in a corner for Burnley but Stoke front man Mame Biram Diouf heads clear at the front post. Settling into this one now after that early burst. Stoke with a corner...

  35. Post update

    Ings on it from the off

    A posse of Stoke defenders falling over themselves to stop Ings who, cutting in from the left wing, makes his way into the box brilliantly... before slightly shinning a shot at Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland. Strong start.

  36. KICK-OFF

    Michael Oliver peeps his whistle!

    We're off at Turf Moor. Like I said, hold on to your hats...

  37. Post update

    Burnley v Stoke (15:00 BST)

    By scoring the winner against Hull last week, Danny Ings became the first Burnley player to reach double figures (in terms of goals) in the top flight since 1976. So he is a local legend, that's for sure.

  38. Post update

    Burnley v Stoke (15:00 BST)

    Without being patronising, the atmosphere at Turf Moor seems celebratory rather than subdued. The team have given it everything this season and manager Sean Dyche can be proud of the energy and guts of his small squad. Agree with that?

  39. Post update

    Take in that Stoke bench

    Fair play to Stoke boss Mark Hughes - he's getting the best out of his squad and keeping some big, talented names on the bench...

    Subs: Begovic, Ireland, Odemwingie, Wilson, Sidwell, Crouch, Wollscheid.

    Peters Crouch and Odemwingie are match winners on their day, and Stephen Ireland can still unleash a killer pass from time to time.

  40. Post update

    "You Can Go Your Own Way..."

    The Fleetwood Mac classic blares out of the Turf Moor PA, and might perhaps be food for thought for Danny Ings.

    Should he move, where do you think he might be best suited to pull on his boots next season?

    I read that David Moyes would love to lure him to Spain...

  41. Post update

    Burnley v Stoke (15:00 BST)

    Top scorer Danny Ings leads the line for Burnley - is this really his Turf Moor send-off?

    Stoke are also unchanged. Charlie Adam is in fine form and will be pulling the strings in midfield.

    Burnley XI: Heaton; Trippier; Shackell (c), Duff, Mee; Boyd, Arfield, Jones, Taylor; Barnes; Ings

    Stoke XI: Butland; Cameron, Shawcross, Muniesa, Pieters; Whelan, N'Zonzi; Walters, Adam, Arnautovic; Diouf

  42. Post update

    Both squads going through warm up

    Yes, the players are going through their pre-match drills. It's windy and sunny in Lancashire. Let's get some team news...

  43. Post update

    Burnley v Stoke (15:00 BST)

    Hold onto your hats! Burnley are already relegated and Stoke are comfortable in ninth. The shackles are off then, so we could see some free-flowing, rollercoaster football...
