Ashley Westwood’s signal to the bench was instant. The London Stadium fell silent. Burnley’s midfield orchestrator soon departed for hospital, the incident overshadowing the rest of this 1-1 draw.It had appeared innocuous, Westwood winning the ball ahead of Nikola Vlasic. But within seconds the seriousness was obvious. Declan Rice gestured for a stretcher, while Vlasic lifted his shirt to hide the tears.
