The Star Early Edition - - SPORT -

LON­DON: Ex­pe­ri­enced Burn­ley mid­fielder Dean Mar­ney is set to miss the rest of the sea­son af­ter he sus­tained a cru­ci­ate knee lig­a­ment in­jury dur­ing Sun­day’s 2-1 Premier League de­feat at Ar­se­nal. The 32-year-old, who suf­fered a sim­i­lar in­jury in Fe­bru­ary 2015, has been a reg­u­lar fea­ture in Burn­ley’s first XI, mak­ing 21 league starts this sea­son. “Dean’s see­ing a spe­cial­ist to­day but un­for­tu­nately he has done his right cru­ci­ate, which is the one he did be­fore. There’s ob­vi­ously a long pe­riod of re­hab for that one,” man­ager Sean Dy­che said yes­ter­day. — ANA/AP/Reuters/dpa
