December 28, 2018
Francis ruptured his ACL and will miss the rest of the season."It's a huge blow for us, Simon, everyone connected with the club," said manager Eddie Howe. "He's been our leader on the pitch and a role model and a big miss in the dressing room. As a team it's a big loss and a big gap to fill. He didn't deserve that, but it's happened and now we'll do our best to support him through this process."
ANALYSIS
Francis had to be replaced just before halftime and will now go through around six to ninth months of recovery. He'll likely return to action sometime next Fall.
