The Treatment Table – Gameweek 33

Filed under: Injury News - Posted by: Paul

We scour the post-match reports and injury rooms after the weekend’s matches in order to discover those players who picked up problems over Saturday and Sunday’s nine matches:

The Gunners back-up keeper Lukasz Fabianksi missed yesterday’s trip to Goodison through illness.

Aston Villa
Fabian Delph missed Saturday’s home loss to Fulham with an Achilles problem, though Paul Lambert is confident the midfielder will be in contention for next week’s trip to Palace

“Delph trained on yesterday and was a bit sore. He’s feeling a bit sore at the back of his legs at the minute, hopefully he’ll be all right for next week. I think there was a risk that if he’s played he might have pulled something.”

Andre Schurrle picked up a foot problem in Saturday evening’s win over Stoke following a challenge by Charlie Adam. After the game, Jose Mourinho seemed confident the German would be available for tomorrow’s Champions League clash with PSG:

“I believe he will be okay to play. I like aggressive football and I can’t get inside the mind of a player to decide if the intention was to hurt or not, so it’s fine for me.”

Leon Osman was forced off with an eye injury just 10 minutes into Sunday’s win over Arsenal. After the game, Roberto Martinez confirmed the midfielder should be ready for the Toffees’ clash against Sunderland next weekend:

“Leon’s really lucky to avoid serious injury. He’s got a nasty cut that needed stitches on top of his eye and his eyelid was affected. But he’s fine and will be fine for the weekend.”

Tom Huddlestone missed the 1-0 win over Swansea with a back problem. The midfielder took to Twitter to reveal his omission was merely precautionary, with Steve Bruce perhaps having one eye on next weekend’s FA Cup semi-final with Sheffield United.

Daniel Agger missed yesterday’s trip to West Ham after picking up a knee problem in training, Brendan Rodgers has confirmed. Speaking to Sky Sports prior to the 2-1 Upton Park win, the Liverpool boss revealed:

“Daniel hurt his knee and had to come out of training and isn’t able to play. It shouldn’t be too serious – he’s just had to miss today and was touch and go.”

Man City
Yaya Toure picked up a knock in the home win over Southampton, Manuel Pellegrini has confirmed. The City boss is optimistic the problem is not serious ahead of double Gameweek 34.

Man United
Ashley Young was subbed off less than 20 minutes into United’s emphatic win at Newcastle after damaging ligaments in his hand, David Moyes has confirmed. Patrice Evra is also a concern for the Red Devils ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League trip to Bayern. The Frenchman revealed he was forced off at St James’ Park with an ongoing knee problem but told the club’s official website “I think I will be fit” to face Pep Guardiola’s side.

Jay Rodriguez lasted less than half an hour of Saturday’s loss at City before being stretchered off with a potentially serious knee injury. Mauricio Pochettino admitted after the game he fears the Saints’ top scorer could be out for the remainder of the season. Artur Boruc and Gaston Ramirez missed the Etihad clash with a minor back problem and ankle knock respectively.

Stephen Ireland missed out of the Potters’ visit to Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening through illness.

West Brom
Midfield duo Graham Dorrans and Zoltan Gera were both forced off with injuries in the weekend win at Norwich, according to the local press. Dorrans left the field on 77 minutes and was replaced by Gera but the Hungarian lasted just six minutes before sustaining a suspected hamstring problem.

  1. Cech / xxxx

    Distan / Merte / Dann / B Turner / Faye

    Hazard / Silva / Yaya / Rahim / B Johnson

    Suares / Sturridge / Lukaku

    2 FT.... Sturridge & Rahim OUT... Who IN ? Please give me some advice guys...

    1. Puncheon and Aguero is what I'm doing.

      1. You think that Aguero gonna play more than 60 min in both games...?

        1. Nobody knows, but he can still rack up points when used as a sub.

          1. what do you think about Dzeko & Mirallas... ?

    2. Ja igram sa dzekom!

  2. If Boruc is injured, and even if he isn't, I might bring in a new keeper.

    With that in mind: who's the best keeper for the remaining weeks, regardless of price? Can anyone beat Hart?

    1. Chesney, hart

    2. Cech maybe

    3. Hart or Mannone for me.

      Extra GWs with save points swing it for me.

      1. +1

    4. hart it is

    5. cech?

    6. Hart take my MC attack down to 2

      1. this plays into it. I'll take one of Silva and Kun to play with Yaya, and then Hart me thinks

    7. DDG - DGW

  3. Thoughts on what to do here? 2FT 0.4m ITB

    Azpi Baines* Stones*
    Gerrard Hazard Yaya* AJ*
    Luk* Suarez Sturridge

    Boruc Baker Parker Chester

  4. Get rid of Hazard or Gerrard for Silva/Nasri?

    1. Very tough one i have the same problem!

    2. but i think gerrard

      1. That is what I'm swaying towards. Even though he has been outscoring Haz and Haz could have gametime risk...Stevie has been taking less free kicks and corners lately and his assists are down, his only positive is pens and surely they can't keep getting so many?

  5. Any advise on this lot?


    WARD COLEMAN terry


    LUKAKA suarez studge

    Subs: marshall chambers demel bjohnson

    2FT and 2m ITB

    A) studge to Kun

    B) hazard to silva

    C) demel to zaba or komps

    1. Definitely A. Carry transfer and youre in a strong position.

      1. Definetly carrying a trannie

        Not sure about Kun's game tome over the DGW though

        1. no-one is but you'll want him for the following weeks anyway so worth taking the chance but wont be captaining...

    3. A

  6. Gerrard I reckon, yello at the wkd and he's out for 2 games

    1. reply fail

    2. Damn it...reply fail to DTV

      1. Cheers!

        1. Would you go for :-

          A) Baines and Nasri
          B) Silva and Disin

          B would mean I could change for Aguero and Rambo GW35 if they both stay fit but I like A more for a one off DGW

  7. This is what Tim Sherwood is doing tonight


    1. Why does he always lump his best player Eriksen on the wing?

      1. for the same reason Moyes dumps Mata on the left wing

        He's f'n clueless about how to use creative players

    2. He should have succeeded Ferguson at United.
      Where can you make those pictures.. ?

        1. Thank you kindly.

  8. Cech, Gerrard, Bony :arrow: Howard, Barkley, Aguero, -4?

      1. Cheers bud, are you getting Aguero?

        1. Evs

          I may take a gamble on him.

          Evra & Slurridge


          Distin & Aguero



          1. Sounds good to me.

          2. not keen on bringing in more Everton. I'll want rid of Everton after this GW

            1. though I'll keep Lukaku ;)

    2. no sir

    3. Nay

    Me no likey this Silva news :-(

    1. wouldnt worry. he's had it last few weeks and hasnt stopped him. no way he'll be rested imo.

      ps ive done Mata > Silva already.

      1. Yeah Silva has had this injury for years I think. It's a chronic injury he's been carrying and he's going to have to live with it until his career ends.

      2. Evs
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        I did mata :arrow: Yaya on Friday :roll:

    2. What's happened to him now?

      1. scout tweets

        1. Yeah just looked, dear oh dear...

    3. Whats the news?

      1. Evs
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights

        Carrying a knock, hopefully not the same 'knock' Clyne had that kept him out for 3 months :mad: !!!

        1. Or Jonny Evans' 3 week claf strain that is now in it's 4th month

    4. He will still start, i wouldnt worry about it

    5. i fear i may end up with 2 SGW players in Silva AND Aguero

      1. Evs
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights

        This is my fear, but must win every game now City with LFC form.

        Can't rest key players imo

    6. aye that would be typical.......... aguero atarts but yaya n silva dont

    7. would be more worried about Yaya, he's played a lot of minutes and has had a back injury also.

      at least silva has had a rest via his previous injuries.

      Stat: Yaya has played 750ish minutes more than Silva ;)

  10. Silva, Nasri or Puncheon?

    Aguero or Lukaku?

    Have Coleman and getting Baines and already have Yaya Toure and Dzeko...

    1. Nasri

      2. Yeah am favouring Lukaku over Aguero too atm surprisingly... Everton great form, Lukaku great form and more nailed and no Everton attackers atm.

    1. He didn't play in their last league game, and they've already won their tie really.

  11. New Post
  12. chadli has done well in this position http://lineupbuilder.com/?sk=2jy1g
    442 is a push though

  13. Time for some AJ scouting!

  14. Did......Granville (C) Borini in UFPL?
