Albion expect Leandro Trossard to miss at least four league games after suffering a groin injury.

The Belgian star has been ruled out of Saturday’s visit from Burnley in the Premier League.

Head coach Graham Potter today revealed he is looking at fixtures after the next international break as a target for Trossard’s return.

Albion return to action after the next set of international fixtures when they go to Aston Villa on October 19.

Trossard was injured while training with Belgium ahead of their Euro 2020 qualifier against San Marino.

Potter said: “He just had a feeling in his groin.

“We don’t think it is as bad as initially he thought.

“He is obviously not going to be available for the weekend and the other side of the next international break is probably what we are aiming for now.

“At this early stage, it’s hard to put too much more of a timescale on it.”

Albion have Premier League games at home to Burnley and Tottenham and away to Newcastle and Chelsea before the next break, as well as the Carabao Cup tie at home to Aston Villa.

If Potter’s expectations prove correct, the injury will also put Trossard’s hopes of an international debut on hold.

Belgium play San Marino and Kazakhstan on October 10 and 13 respectively.
