Burnley injury update following the absence of a key player vs Newcastle United

Johann Gudmundsson is the latest Burnley player to be ruled out via injury. The Icelander was not in Burnley’s squad for Saturday’s 2-0 loss to Newcastle United, despite having started the previous three league games.

While Vincent Kompany has not divulged the nature or degree of his injury, he has confirmed that it occurred during last week’s game against Manchester United, when he was taken off early in the first half. “He pulled up against Manchester United and he’s struggling with that,” Kompany said after the defeat at St James’ Park on Saturday.

On a more positive note, Lyle Foster, who has been sorely missed by the Clarets in recent weeks, has completed his three-match suspension and will be ready for Tuesday night’s crucial encounter against Luton Town.

It comes after the striker was given a straight red card for aggressive behavior in a recent league match against Nottingham Forest.

Gudmundsson, on the other hand, joins Hjalmar Ekdal, Nathan Redmond, and Michael Obafemi on the bench.

Darko Churlinov, who had recently recovered from a significant health crisis, played for Burnley’s Under-21s on Saturday.

North Macedonia’s manager revealed in early June that Churlinov had been transported to a hospital in Belgrade after developing probable blood poisoning.

Churlinov was then found to have been flown back to the UK to be treated at a Manchester clinic.

Kompany said at the end of August that Churlinov, who was left out of Burnley’s 25-man Premier League squad, had made a “miraculous” recovery.

CJ Egan-Riley and Han-Noah Massengo were also on the field in the 1-1 draw with Fleetwood Town.
