The weekend’s nine fixtures seemed to have made a minimal impact on the treatment rooms up and down the country. With this in mind, we roll out an injury and suspension all-in-one update ahead of tonight’s Emirates clash between Arsenal and Newcastle:

Injuries

Aston Villa
Leandro Bacuna was withdrawn at half-time in the weekend loss at Swansea due to illness, Paul Lambert has confirmed.

Everton
Roberto Martinez confirmed Leighton Baines was subbed off towards the end of Saturday’s loss at Southampton:

“We will assess Leighton Baines and see if it’s a serious injury or not. He was feeling his knee and his calf a little bit, we will assess him but it shouldn’t be too bad”.

Fulham
Steve Sidwell was forced off with a knock during Saturday’s draw with Hull, according to the club’s official website.

Newcastle
Luuk de Jong has been ruled out of this evening’s trip to the Emirates with an ankle problem picked up during last week’s loss to Swansea.

Swansea
Angel Rangel was subbed off during the weekend win over Villa after picking up an injury late in the second-half.

West Brom
The Baggies right-back Steven Reid lasted less than 45 minutes of the weekend win over West Ham before limping off due to injury.

West Ham
James Tomkins was forced off just after the half-hour mark of Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at the Hawthorns through injury.

Suspensions

Chelsea’s Ramires was handed a four-match ban last week after accepting the FA’s charge of violent conduct for an off-the-ball incident during the Gameweek 35 home loss to Sunderland. The Brazilian was sidelined for yesterday’s trip to Anfield and will also miss the upcoming games against Norwich and Cardiff, in addition to the opening fixture of the 2014/15 campaign.

Stoke skipper Ryan Shawcross is set to serve a one-match ban this weekend after he was dismissed against Spurs at the weekend. The Potters skipper, who received two yellow cards in the 1-0 loss, misses a home clash against Fulham, with Marc Muniesa likely to partner Marc Wilson at the heart of defence, allowing Erik Pieters to return to the starting XI at left-back.

Cardiff centre-half Juan Cala will sit out this weekend’s trip to Newcastle after being dismissed for denying a goalscoring opportunity during yesterday’s 4-0 loss at Sunderland. The Spaniard returns in time for the Gameweek 38 clash with Chelsea as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer attempts to stave off the threat of relegation.

Jordan Henderson serves the last of a three-match ban this weekend as Liverpool look to bounce back from Sunday’s loss to Chelsea with a tricky trip to Selhurst Park.

  1. It seems every man and his dog are putting Yaya in, even for Nasri? Is anyone even slightly concerned about his game time over 180 mins having just returned?

    1. Your grav scares me :p I brought him in to block rival.

      • 9 months, 1 day ago
    2. I hope he hasn't just put a couple of pencils up his nose and some underpants on his head

      1. Well, that's what they used to do in the Sudan :-)

        • 9 months, 1 day ago
    3. No. Class is permanent. 60min was enough last weekend...

      • 9 months, 1 day ago
    4. I am.
      And quite clueless what to do.

      • 9 months, 1 day ago
    5. My dog has no clue - he just barks transfers & i do them for him ;-)

  2. Repost, Score 2-2

    Pick one.

    A) Dzeko + Yaya + Coleman
    B) Aguero + Eriksen + Evra/Jones/Zaba

  3. I'd love here some community opinions about this issue:

    current DGW team:

    MANNONE
    DEMICHELIS Cahill Azpi
    MATA NASRI AJ Eriksen
    Suarez ROONEY AGUERO

    1 FT
    bank: 0.5 mln

    A. Cahill :arrow: Evra
    B. Azpi :arrow: Phil Jones
    C. Cahill + Nasri :arrow: Alonso + Yaya (-4)

    ?

    • 9 months, 1 day ago
    1. A or B

      • 9 months, 1 day ago
    2. D Azpi :arrow: Vidic

      • 9 months, 1 day ago
  4. Current team:

    Mannone* (Boruc)
    Zabaleta*, Vlaar*, Fonte (Coleman, Ward)
    Yaya*, Mata*, AJ*, Eriksen (Ki*)
    Aguero(C)*, Suarez, Lukaku

    History link - http://fantasy.premierleague.com/entry/41391/history/

    I am behind in one mini league and ahead in another so am simply interested in the best score/rank. 3 City and Sunderland already so can't consider bringing in any further assets. Just going to keep Ki as perm bench to free up budget elsewhere.

    Which of the following do you think is best?:

    A) Lukaku to Long/Jelavic/Berahino
    (0 point hit, leaves me with 8 DGWers)
    B) Lukaku, Eriksen, Coleman to Rooney(C), Amalfitano, PJones
    (8 point hit, leaves me with 10 DGWers)
    C) Any other suggestions welcome

    Many thanks in advance for any opinions!

  5. A Luk, Nasri, Eriksen, Fonte, Coleman => Roo, Yaya, Amalf, Zab, Alonso (-16)
    B Luk Erisken Coleman => Roo, Amal, Zab (-8)
    C Luk fonte coleman => roo, demi, 4.2 def (-8)

    mannone (marshall)
    azpi coleman c.davies (ward fonte)
    mata nasri AJ rambo (eriksen)
    Luk suarez Aguero
    1.6, 1FT

    • 9 months, 1 day ago
    1. B is pretty similar to what I'm contemplating above. I'd definitely say no to the 16pt hit

      • 9 months, 1 day ago
  6. Should I captain aguero or Rooney guys?

    Rvp will make Rooney less attractive and take his pens?
    but I lead by 28, me and my rival both captained Rooney this week, my rival doesn't own aguero.

    • 9 months, 1 day ago
  7. What do you think the score will be? I'm going for 3-0 Arsenal.

    • 9 months, 1 day ago
  8. Ramsey + 19 pts V.S Ramsey C poor me & **** my Rival

    althoug my Overall Rank 5,372

    and his Overall Rank 479,399

      • 9 months, 1 day ago
