This is good news.

Thomas Christiansen said today that the injury to Jansson is “nothing serious” and is likely to play on the weekend against Ipswich Town. He also insisted that while Cooper also will not play against Burnley, that their is enough cover at central defence with Matthew Pennington looking to return to the lineup for the first time since the opening fixture of the season away at Bolton Wanderers. Cameron Borthwick-Jackson and Conor Shaughnessy may also feature at CB tonight.

Anyway, here are the links of the day. Check back for more coverage of the Burnley match tonight at Turf Moor.
