Burnley winger Johann Berg Gudmundsson is place for a spell out of action after??sustaining what boss Sean Dyche has become a”reasonably serious”??hamstring injury while on international duty.
Last week, gudmundsson came in Iceland Euro 2020 qualifying defeat to France.
Dyche stated on Thursday at his press conference before Saturday’s trip to Leicester:”Johann Gudmundsson will not be imagining.
“Unfortunately he has injured on international duty, a reasonably significant hamstring injury, so it surely won’t be times, it is going to be more like weeks and that I really don’t know how many yet, but it is serious enough to speak in that way.”
Dyche also said ex-Leicester midfielder Danny Drinkwater, on loan in Burnley in Chelsea, is”making improvements but not quite there” with regards to his recovery from an ankle injury.
A late call will be drawn up on midfielder Jack Cork, who missed the 1-0 win over Everton last time out because of shoulder issue, and forward Ashley Barnes (groin) ahead of Saturday’s match.
Dyche said:”Corky is a touch and go along using his shoulder blade harm, a fine break, and Ashley Barnes comes with a tight knee, thus we will need to make judgement calls on them.
“It is not a no yet – that will be a judgement call on the risk and rewards of playing”
Full-back Erik Pieters, who came off injured against Everton, looks set to be accessible this week, having trained.
The contest at the King Power Stadium is really a clash between two sides who have made adequate begins to the Premier League season.
Leicester, under Dyche colleague Brendan Rodgers, are fourth in the table, three places and two points better than Burnley, whose past four matches have now seen them win and draw double.
Dyche, who had been on the coaching staff at Watford when Rodgers was manager at the club 2008-09, stated:”So much the performances were good.
“It sounds simple doesn’t it? Four unbeaten in the Premier League. It’s not easy. We certainly value thatwe all know we’ve had to earn it and we will have to continue doing that.”
