Vlasic was in an emotional distress and had to be consoled by his team-mates, who also looked shaken by the incident.

Westwood was eventually stretchered off in the 30th minute and replaced by Josh Brownhill.  

Moments after the change, Burnley took the lead through Wout Weghorst second goal for the club. 

The loss of the midfielder will come as a big blow to the Clarets, who currently face a difficult task of avoiding the drop. 

Westwood had been a regular in the Burnley XI, having appeared in 26 of their 32 Premier League games this season.
