Injuries

The Treatment Table – Gameweek 32

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.”

    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??

      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.

          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.

                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.

        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.

    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!

      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.
