Paul Dummett picked up an injury while representing Wales on Friday evening which could leave Newcastle United without a specialist left-back for the game at Turf Moor.
Dummett was making his first start for the senior side, but his night ended on a sour note when he was replaced in the 39th minute following a cynical challenge on Yussuf Poulsen. He injured himself in the tackle which also earned him a caution – Chris Gunter came on in his place and the Reading defender will play in Albania on Tuesday. There is no word on the extent of his injury, but if Dummett does miss out in game week 13, then Rafa Benitez may decide to alter his formation against Burnley. Both Kenedy and Javier Manquillo have deputised on the left in a back four, but given the form of Frederico Fernandez and Fabian Schär recently, plus the expected return of captain Jamaal Lascelles, Benitez could opt for three centre-halves with DeAndre Yedlin and Kenedy providing the width in a 3-5-2.
