The Treatment Table – Gameweek 32

Filed under: Injury News - Posted by: Paul

We take a look at the injuries picked up over the weekend in our Monday afternoon regular. United and Spurs have cause for concern, while Sam Allardyce has worries in defence ahead of tonight’s trip to Sunderland:

Cardiff
Fabio was replaced during the first-half of the Bluebirds’ 3-3 draw at West Brom through injury, according to reports in the local press.

Everton
Ross Barkley started for the third match in succession yesterday but was forced off at the break with a calf complaint. In an interview with the Toffees official website, Roberto Martinez would only reveal:

“Ross had a knock on his calf halfway through the first half. With these soft tissue injuries, someone like Ross doesn’t think it will affect him and he wanted to run it off. He had to come off.”

Man United
David Moyes confirmed Rafael was forced off with a knock in Saturday’s win over Villa, whilst Antonio Valencia missed out with a knee problem:

“With Rafael, it’s an injury and we need to check it out. “Valencia had a bit of tendinitis in his knee, which is why he wasn’t involved. He was probably one I would have put to full-back if we had lost one, so we knew we’d be short if that was the case. The young boy Guillermo Varela might have got on the bench but he was injured as well so we had to juggle it around. We have injuries but we will probably know more about them tomorrow. I’ve just got to hope that Rafa’s injury isn’t too bad.”

Norwich
Joseph Yobo missed the 3-0 loss at Swansea after picking up a calf problem in training, though Chris Hughton remains optimistic the centre-half will be available for next weekend’s vital home clash with West Brom.

Tottenham
Jan Vertonghen lasted just 24 minutes of yesterday’s defeat at Anfield before limping off with ankle injury, Tim Sherwood confirmed post-match. Roberto Soldado also picked up a hamstring injury in the 4-0 defeat at Anfield, with both players set to be assessed later in the week. Paulinho missed the Merseyside encounter with conjunctivitis.

West Ham
Sam Allardyce has worries at centre-half for this evening’s trip to Sunderland. The Hammers boss has ruled James Collins out of the Black Cats showdown, though is optimistic on a trio of alternatives:

“James Collins doesn’t have a chance as he’s pulled a calf muscle. James Tomkins got a bad knock which we’re looking at and we’ll wait until Sunday, but we think he’s going to be OK. Roger Johnson got a big lump under his eye and we were worried that he might have slightly fractured the bone, but he hasn’t. We should have Winston Reid back from illness.”

  1. Not watching the game since AJ is not playing.

    So i guess ill be watching New Girl now.

    1. Excellent choice, although is it a new season? Think I've been through them all now (a guilty pleasure to say the least - Descanell is outstandingly adorable)

      • 1 year, 8 hours ago
  2. Evening all,

    Tonight's most influential performers (in terms of your OR) are;

    Nolan, 14.3%
    Mannone, 9.2%
    AJ, 8.6%
    Colback, 6.2% (non-starter)
    Collins 5.4% (non-starter)
    Adrian, 3.5%

    Monster Differential Potential;

    Carroll, 0.7%
    Borini, 0.5%

    Who is relying on who to save/cement a gameweek, and anyone out there got a monster differential stepping up??

    • 1 year, 8 hours ago
    1. Would love 1-1 with goals from reid and colback

      • 1 year, 8 hours ago
      1. I like these sorts of games, where the diff's get the limelight.

        • 1 year, 8 hours ago
    2. *forgot to add (non-starter next to AJ)

      • 1 year, 8 hours ago
    3. to be honest, whilst my overall rank isn't that great, I seem to be 5-10 points ahead of most this week, with Demel, Caroll and Manonne to go. Expecting 6 points, but can't complain. Every point matters really.

      • 1 year, 8 hours ago
        1. 12/5 on a draw for Betfred, I'll take that.

          Boruc clean sheet on the bench, but every time I played him over Manonne, Manonne worked up a million save points, a cleanie and bonus! Hoping thats the case, and if not, big Andy gets the goals.

          • 1 year, 8 hours ago
          1. good luck with that, I'll always back the diff's, keeps things interesting.

            • 1 year, 8 hours ago
            1. Good luck to you as well! Nolan off the bench is a pretty good sub to have, lets hope they both help each other out!

              • 1 year, 8 hours ago
              1. Cheers!

                Something from Nolan would wrap up a nice little recovery week for me. Saved my FT (was thinking of Evra - Terry!) and it could really pay off if he scores tonight.

                • 1 year, 8 hours ago
    4. I've got Ki. (on my bench) 1.7% ownership. :cool: Playing in a very advanced position too...

      • 1 year, 8 hours ago
      1. I was just thinking... he's on the radar for the double gameweek. I do rate him.

        • 1 year, 8 hours ago
    5. Bardsley is at 1.9% ownership but seems popular on here lately. I picked him up this week myself.

      • 1 year, 8 hours ago
      1. I had him earlier in the season and he was great. Awesome diff to have for the run in - he gets forward a lot.

        Would love to see him back on the FPL radar but i do think Sunderland's assets need to produce before those DGWs to really earn a following.

        • 1 year, 8 hours ago
  3. No Johnson is nice. But Poyet will probably shake things up second half.

    The bulky defence and midfield also bodes well for a clean sheet at both ends to be honest.

    Manonne, Andy Carroll (I know!) and Demel for me to go!

    • 1 year, 8 hours ago
  4. Just seen the price of an England shirt. £90 is ludicrous as we'll only be wearing it on 3 occasions.

    • 1 year, 8 hours ago
    1. 90 quid........... its feckin lycra, not silk....... grrrr feel for the parents buyin kit for kids :(

      • 1 year, 8 hours ago
      1. I don't they've obviously got to much money if they have £90 to spend on a shirt for there kids

        • 1 year, 8 hours ago
        • 1 year, 8 hours ago
    2. LOL

      • 1 year, 8 hours ago
    3. Nonsense. Absolute and utter nonsense. Really starting to get out of hand.

      • 1 year, 8 hours ago
    4. Didn't see that! That is ridiculous! I hope Sports Direct bang them out for £50!

      • 1 year, 8 hours ago
      1. Or a more reasonable price like they were for the last world cup at £30 still making a £28 profit on each shirt

        • 1 year, 8 hours ago
  5. giroud 3rd most sprints for striker at the weekend :lol:

    • 1 year, 8 hours ago

    1. had a lovely Mother's Day yesterday.

      • 1 year, 8 hours ago
        • 1 year, 8 hours ago
  6. Already got Yaya

    I can do AJ and Nolan to Ki/Puncheon and Silva but if I do I'll have to go without one of Kun or Demi. Worth it?

    • 1 year, 8 hours ago
    1. what about nasri.... can you afford kun then

      • 1 year, 8 hours ago
      1. I can afford Lun with Silva, just. It's more a case that I can't get Kun and Demi as I'll only have one City spot open.

        • 1 year, 8 hours ago
          • 1 year, 8 hours ago
      2. he means x4 citeh I think

        • 1 year, 8 hours ago
          • 1 year, 8 hours ago
            • 1 year, 8 hours ago
    2. Go without Demi I can't stand the fact that useless pile of **** is a premiership footballer

      • 1 year, 8 hours ago
  7. top epl team loses to last place team = the league is so competitive

    top team in any other league loses to a relegation team = LOL they suck!!

    epl fan logic

    • 1 year, 8 hours ago
    1. go back to watching scottish football

      • 1 year, 8 hours ago
    2. You not a fan of the 'epl'?

      • 1 year, 8 hours ago
      1. there's only one PL ;)

        • 1 year, 8 hours ago
    3. Some day, my boy, you'll realise that all your efforts on here have in no way improved your chances of ever having sex with anything other than your hand or a buttered up bagel.

      • 1 year, 8 hours ago
      1. Don't think he comes onto Fantasyfootballscout looking for sex to be honest :p If he is, he's definitely in the wrong place.

        • 1 year, 8 hours ago
        1. Merely pointing out to our painfully obvious virgin troll that he's not aiding his situation in any way ;)

          As an aside, I frequently come on here looking for sex, ask Doosra :shock:

          • 1 year, 8 hours ago
          1. That's bordering on necrophilia 8O

            • 1 year, 8 hours ago
            1. *refrains from telling on the border of tasteless joke*

              • 1 year, 8 hours ago
            2. I'm the most evil being in the universe and this is what you judge me on? :shock:

              • 1 year, 8 hours ago
    4. I think what english fans are focussing more on is the fact that:

      1. Bigger teams in other leagues are better than bigger teams in EPL. (eg Barca/Madrid/Bayern are better than Chelsea/Arsenal/United)

      2. Small teams in other leagues are worse than small teams in EPL. So if a small team in other league beats the leader, thats a shame. But since small teams are better in EPL, there is less shame if Chelsea loses to Palace, than the shame of Madrid losing to Bilbao (seems like a name of a hobbit) hypothetically.

      3. FECK OFF NOBODY CARES WE ALL ARE HERE TO ENJOY FOOTBALL

      • 1 year, 8 hours ago
    5. Bayern - unbeaten in the bundesliga
      Celtic - 1 loss in the Scottish premiership
      Juventus - 11 points clear at the top
      PSG - 13 points clear at the top

      'epl' fanboys is it? I think I'll take the entertainment of not knowing who is going to win ever then listening to someone call the BPL 'epl again.

      • 1 year, 8 hours ago
    6. It's the style of football that is played here, it allows for every team, whether they have money or not, to be competitive. That's why its the best league in the world...

      • 1 year, 8 hours ago
      1. And Ligue One is shite and has been irrelevant more than a decade. Good players, shite teams, 2nd rate competition .

        • 1 year, 8 hours ago

        • 1 year, 8 hours ago
    2. Think I'd save then maybe Sterling to Ki/Puncheon for next week leaving the other spare for getting in Kun/Rooney?

      • 1 year, 8 hours ago
  10. Gary Neville on the potential Liverpool v man city match being a title decider

    "It's like having a choice over 2 blokes who knick your wife"

      • 1 year, 8 hours ago
    1. C sounds the most exciting... but I'm not sure I could do it myself.

      I don't trust Aguero, and barely trust Silva. I trust Dzeko somewhere in between. :(

      • 1 year, 8 hours ago

    • 1 year, 8 hours ago
  18. Two FT to use, what do you think?

    Marshall Mannone
    Terry Coleman Olsson *Fonte* Ward
    Yaya *Gerrard* Hazard Mirallas Parker
