David Dunn: Will miss clash with Burnley having undergone a minor op

The 33-year-old central midfielder, who has made nearly 300 league appearances in two spells at Ewood Park, sustained a knee injury in training on Monday and has undergone a minor operation.

The news comes just three days before Rovers meet their fierce rivals aiming to keep an unbeaten streak which stretches back 34 years.

Speaking to Blackburn's official website, boss Gary Bowyer said: "He aggravated the injury in training on Monday, we were fortunate to get him straight into hospital on Tuesday and his rehabilitation is now underway. We hope to welcome him back soon."

Bowyer will hope to include Jordan Rhodes in his squad despite the striker withdrawing from the Scotland squad at the start of the week due to a broken hand.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
