Ashley Westwood (32), Burnley midfielder, broke his right leg during the first half of his home match with West Ham (final 1-1), in the 33rd day of the Premier League.
In the 24th minute of the match between West Ham and Burnley, with the score 0-0, Westwood made a long hold on the opposing half of the field. He tried to pass the ball to a colleague by sliding.
West Ham midfielder Dusan Vlasic came at speed and fell unintentionally on Westwood’s right foot. The referee seemed to think the job was done and acted more defensively, just waiting for the referee to blow the final whistle.
