Burnley winger Johann Berg Gudmundsson is place to get a spell out of action after??sustaining what boss Sean Dyche is become a”reasonably serious”??hamstring injury while on international duty.
A week gudmundsson came in Iceland Euro 2020 qualifying defeat to France.
Dyche said on Thursday at his press conference ahead of Saturday’s trip to Leicester:”Johann Gudmundsson will not be figuring.
“Unfortunately he got injured on international duty, a pretty serious hamstring injury, so it surely will not be times, it will be like weeks and that I don’t know how many yet, but it’s serious enough to talk in that way.”
Dyche also stated ex-Leicester midfielder Danny Drinkwater, on loan in Burnley in Chelsea, is”making improvements but not quite there” with respect to his recovery from a foot injury.
Meanwhile, a late call is going to be made on midfielder Jack Cork, who missed the 1-0 triumph over Everton last time out because of shoulder issue, and forward Ashley Barnes (groin) before Saturday’s match.
Dyche said:”Corky is a touch and move together using his shoulder blade injury, a fine break, and Ashley Barnes has a tight knee, thus we are going to have to make judgement calls .
“It’s not a no though – which will be a judgement call about 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 competition in the King Power Stadium is really a battle between two sides that have made adequate starts to the Premier League season.
Leicester, under Dyche’s former colleague Brendan Rodgers, are in the table and 2 points better than Burnley, whose last four games have now seen them win and draw twice.
Dyche, who had been on the coaching staff at Watford when Rodgers was manager in the club 2008-09, said:”So much the performances have been good.
“It sounds easy doesn’t it? Four unbeaten in the Premier League. It’s not straightforward. We certainly respect thatwe all know we have had to earn it and we’ll have to continue doing that.”
