Burnley boss Dyche confirms Cornet injury after first Premier League goal

The Ivory Coast international put the Clarets in front at Leicester but he couldn't finish the match

Burnley manager Sean Dyche has stated Maxwel Cornet suffered a hamstring injury after he broke his Premier League duck in a 2-2 draw against Leicester City.

After impressing in Tuesday's League Cup victory over Rochdale, the former Lyon star was handed his first league start on Saturday and he capped it with a goal.

Jamie Vardy's own goal put Burnley ahead in the 12th minute but the England star found the back of the net again to equalise for the hosts, a few minutes later.
