Burnley keeper Pope expects December return

Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope is targeting a return in December from a shoulder injury.

The England international suffered the injury during Burnley's Europa League clash with Aberdeen.

"I'm looking at December hopefully," the 26-year-old said.

"Everything since the surgery has gone really well. It was a bit of a challenge and it popped out the front.

"I was laying on the physio table at the stadium and they had a go at popping it back in, but they couldn't do it after four attempts.

"If anything sums football up, it's probably that."
