Burnley welcome back Westwood after ban for Man City clash

2 December 2019



Ashley Westwood will return from suspension for Burnley’s Premier League clash against Manchester City.

Westwood missed Saturday’s home defeat to Crystal Palace after picking up a fifth booking of the season, but returns to a midfield in which Danny Drinkwater is pushing for a start.

Charlie Taylor is an injury doubt after being forced off against Palace while Johann Berg Gudmundsson is not yet fit after a hamstring problem.

City will make one enforced change with midfielder Ilkay Gundogan suspended after accumulating five bookings this season.

Record goalscorer Sergio Aguero (thigh) and left-back Oleksandr Zinchenko (knee) are not yet ready to return.

Winger Leroy Sane and centre-back Aymeric Laporte are both long-term absentees with knee injuries.

Burnley provisional squad: Pope, Hart, Lowton, Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Gibson, Pieters, Bardsley, Long, Cork, McNeil, Westwood, Brady, Hendrick, Drinkwater, Lennon, Wood, Barnes, Rodriguez, Vydra.

Man City provisional squad: Ederson, Bravo, Walker, Cancelo, Stones, Otamendi, Fernandinho, Garcia, Mendy, Angelino, Rodri, D Silva, B Silva, De Bruyne, Foden, Mahrez, Doyle, Jesus.
