Midfielder set to return from injury at Burnley but Mamadou Sakho may not be ready

Ruben Loftus-Cheek is in contention to return from injury when Crystal Palace visit Burnley on Sunday, Frank de Boer has confirmed. 

Palace's player of the month has recovered from a groin strain but the match will likely come too soon for Palace's Deadline Day signing, Mamadou Sakho, who is not fully fit. 

"I am delighted to have Mamadou at the club," De Boer told cpfc.co.uk. "He has been here this week and is looking good and is aleady a very good influence in the dressing room and out on the training pitch. 

"He is not quite match fit but he is looking good and has worked very hard this week and could probably play 35 minutes for the Under-23 side on Monday."
