Burnley dealt double injury blow ahead of Chelsea

2 min read

Burnley have this afternoon confirmed that the club were dealt a double injury blow during their victory over Peterborough.

Burnley advance

Sean Dyche’s men got their FA Cup campaign underway a short time ago.

The Clarets welcomed League One outfit Peterborough to Turf Moor for a 3rd-round clash, with Burnley having understandably headed into proceedings as clear favourites to emerge victorious.

The hosts actually entered the matchup in search of a bounce-back performance, having fallen to 3 straight Premier League defeats over the last couple of weeks.

When all was said and done, though, get back to winning ways was precisely what Dyche’s outfit managed.

An entertaining affair eventually saw Burnley get the better of their lower-league opponents, by 4 goals to 2.

Jay Rodriguez (2), Erik Pieters and Jeff Hendrick bagged the goals for the Clarets at Turf Moor.

Burnley’s double blow

An otherwise positive afternoon’s work for Burnley, however, was soured considerably by a pair of blows on the personnel front.

First, Johann Berg Gudmundsson was forced off at the interval, after picking up a hamstring injury:

And Clarets hitman Chris Wood later followed suit, with a hamstring issue of his own:

This will of course come as a major source of concern for Sean Dyche and co., ahead of a testing run of Premier League fixtures.

After returning to league action in a meeting with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge next weekend, Burnley will then take on Leicester City, Manchester United and Arsenal over the weeks that follow.
