I think its only Aluko we will be missing for any period of time and we have good cover there, Chaplin was precautionary apparently, Ball a dead leg and wasn't gonna play Saturday anyway and Burns seems to be carrying this niggle every week, we'll be fine.
I see on another thread that Kerry Blue suggests Conor Chaplin could be out for 6-& weeks, now that could prove costly especially if Aluko is injured too. ☹️

I think the injuries are mounting up
Burns
Aluko
Ball
Chaplin
Davis

That’s after the last two games . And still no primary striker and thin on the ground for midfield cover in my view … and with potentially Burns and Chaplin out, that’s our major scoring threat gone..not good

The person that messaged me later said it was on Facebook so hopefully rubbish.

Indeed. Fingers firmly crossed. I don’t want us to get these injuries so early in the season, but despite the strength of our squad it shows how quickly things can change if a lot of key players all get injured at once. We never seem to do “ quick, simple “ injuries ie out for 1 game, do we!
