Hammer blow for Burnley as Westwood suffers suspected leg break

Hammer strike for Burnley as Westwood suffers a broken leg, leaving Nikola Vlasic in tears

Burnley received what appears to be a massive blow to the people front on Sunday, during the club’s meeting with West Ham United.

The player who was forced out early from the proceedings? Ashley Westwood.

With just over twenty minutes of play at the London Stadium, what appeared to be a harmless challenge in the middle of the garden saw Westwood midfielder and West Ham’s Nikola Vlasic come together.

However, as the latter walked away from the scene, it soon became apparent that Westwood had come out for the worst.

The 32-year-old lay on the ground in palpable pain, as players from both sides quickly rushed to the scene.

One particularly devastated individual appeared in the aforementioned form of Vlasic, who had to be consoled by his West Ham teammates amid recognizing the role he played in the aforementioned intervention.

Unfortunately, it has since been widely reported that Westwood, who was stretched from the field of play, sustained an ankle/tibia fracture.

Weghorst on target

All eyes are back on the event itself in the English capital, despite a worrisome blow on the injury front, but it is Burnley who currently have the advantage when it comes to Sunday afternoon’s result.

It comes with the winter addition Wout Weghorst opening the scoring in the game just after the half-hour mark, ending a long, fruitless streak in front of goal.

Not only that, but Clarett missed a great opportunity to double their lead in the tiebreak, when Maxwell Cornet kicked a penalty just off the post.
