Oh dear.

Christiansen confirmed today that Caleb Ekuban broke another bone in his foot, and is looking at being out until the end of January. It’s a shame, as the summer signing from Chievo Verona had proven to be a great option for the club after returning from an injury suffered against Sunderland back in August. Hopefully Pierre-Michel Lasogga will good to go against Hull City, otherwise Kemar Roofe will have to start up front again. And while Roofe was great against Queens Park Rangers, he struggled yesterday against Norwich.

As much as the club keeps saying that they aren’t looking for additional players in January, I’d be surprised if a few more players don’t end up coming in.

Anyway, on to the links.
