James Tarkowski is rated "touch and go" with a groin issue and Steven Defour is a question mark with a persistent knee problem as Burnley get set to take on Newcastle United Wednesday night.
Tarkowski has been one of the biggest surprises of the season, effectively replacing Michael Keane, but fantasy owners should plan for an alternative this gameweek. "Groin" and "touch and go" usually does not bode well, so Kevin Long is likely to partner Ben Mee against the Magpies. Long has performed admirably in a backup role, helping the club keep three clean sheets in his five starts. Defour, meanwhile, is waiting on word from a knee specialist, who will determine whether the midfielder's knee injury is something he can play through. Should Defour miss out, Jeff Hendrick may drop back in a deeper role, allowing Sean Dyche to start two strikers, or Scott Arfield could fill in, as he has in the past, rather than play his customary wide position.
