Steven Defour is at risk of missing the 2018 World Cup finals in Russia after a precautionary scan revealed he must undergo knee surgery to repair cartilage damage.
The 29-year-old has been an ever-present for the Clarets this term, but there are fears that Defour may not play again competitively in 2017/18 with the midfielder scheduled to go under the knife on Monday. "Unfortunately, he will be out for some time," confirmed Sean Dyche. "That’s a blow to us, and to Steven, of course. He has been playing with the problem for some time and didn’t know it was there. He just had a bit of a sore knee, so he sent him for a scan and there was a problem with his cartilage that the specialist will have to sort out. We’ll wait and see what he says after the operation." Burnley left St James’ Park with a hard-fought point on Wednesday, having travelled to Tyneside without 8 injured first-team players. Ashley Westwood came into midfield for his first PL start of the campaign. Feb 1 - 4:18 AM
