Norwich City: Defensive midfielder out for six weeks with ankle ligament injury

Norwich City midfielder Tom Trybull is out for six weeks after suffering an ankle ligament injury in the 2-0 defeat to West Ham United last Saturday (via Norwich City).

The midfielder completed the full 90 minutes last Sunday, however, posted a picture of himself in a protective boot before swiftly deleting the post off of social media.

Trybull is one of three players who have been out or could be facing spells on the sideline. Timm Klose is out for a lengthy spell after suffering a knee injury in the 1-0 loss to Crawley Town, while Christoph Zimmermann is being assessed after injuring himself in the loss against West Ham.

Daniel Farke commented on the blow of the three injuries, saying it’s one of the challenges they have to face right now.

Trybull’s injury leaves the Canaries a little light in the defensive midfield department. Summer signing Ibrahim Amadou and the injured Alex Tettey remain as the club’s only out-and-out defensive midfielders (via Transfermarkt).

The German midfielder has been a monster for Farke’s side in the Premier League so far with his defensive contribution. The 26-year-old has made the most tackles, joint-second most interceptions, and the third-most clearances for the Norfolk side (via WhoScored).

Trybull has featured in all four Premier League games so far this season and will be a miss in front of an already weak Norwich City defence. His defensive contribution so far this season shows that his absence will leave a gaping hole in front of a defence that has conceded the most goals in the Premier League so far this season (via Premier League).

Norwich fans, just how much of a setback is this? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below!
