FPL Team News and Injury Round-up – Gameweek 30

We’ve pored over all 20 pre-match press conferences ahead of Gameweek 30, with our updated Team News tab containing detailed injury news from each club and predicted line-ups for this weekend’s fixtures.

Our video round-up of the Premier League pressers held on Thursday and Friday, meanwhile, can be viewed at the bottom of this article.

Arsenal v Manchester United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may be able to call upon three of his injured contingent when Manchester United head to Arsenal this weekend.

Anthony Martial (groin) is available for selection, while Nemanja Matic (muscle) and Ander Herrera (hamstring) will be assessed after returning to training.

Solskjaer said:

Anthony [Martial] will be available and, hopefully, we’ll have Nemanja [Matic] and/or Ander [Herrera] ready as well. They just need to have another couple of days’ training with the team. They’ve done well in their recovery work.

Eric Bailly has also recovered from the injury that forced him off in midweek but there was no update provided in Solskjaer’s presser on Jesse Lingard (hamstring), Juan Mata (hamstring), Phil Jones (illness), Antonio Valencia (knock) and Matteo Darmian (knock).

That gruelling win over PSG in the Champions League may prompt changes in the United line-up, with Solskjaer saying:

The fitness issue plays in more than ever. We’ve got players coming in, players who put a proper shift in – one of the hardest nights we’ve had, physically. It was great to have fresh legs, Scott [McTominay], Fred. That must be something we consider this time.

Solskjaer also had plenty to say on Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford:

[Lukaku] has been asked to play wide a few times earlier on and provide more chances but now he’s more in the box. We played with two up with him and Rashy against PSG and they might form a very nice partnership. We need Rom facing the goal.

I keep battering [Marcus] with it that he also should score as many goals as Rom after the training session is finished! He should also get simple tap-ins like Rom has scored the last few games.

Apart from long-term absentees Hector Bellerín (knee), Danny Welbeck (ankle) and Rob Holding (knee), Arsenal reported no injury concerns ahead of the visit of Manchester United. Lucas Torreira begins a three-match ban, however.

Unai Emery, who started Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Mesut Ozil against Rennes on Thursday, suggested he would freshen things up on Sunday:

Sunday we need fresh players, players with energy, we need quality, we need good combinations and we need the players who start on the bench, after they can help us on the pitch and deliver a big performance.

Liverpool v Burnley

Dejan Lovren (match fitness) and James Milner (muscle) will be assessed ahead of Liverpool’s match against Burnley on Sunday, though Joe Gomez (leg) again misses out.

Jurgen Klopp said on Friday:

Dejan [Lovren] trained yesterday first time, full, completely normal. Joe [Gomez] is now running with 100% of his weight. [Gomez] will be probably after the international break. Dejan was out for a while, so we have to see how his fitness is.

Dejan is not injured anymore, he’s fit – but how fit, we’ll have to see. Millie [Milner] we will have to see. Everything heals quicker! He was outside yesterday. He had a little muscle issue. If you ask Millie, he will be ready. But we will see.

Steven Defour (calf) will likely be out for the rest of the season after surgery but Sean Dyche reported no fresh injury concerns in his presser on Friday.

Manchester City v Watford

Aymeric Laporte (muscle) has made an earlier-than-anticipated return to training and will be assessed ahead of City’s match against Watford.

Kevin De Bruyne (hamstring) and Fernandinho (muscle) are out and John Stones (knock) also appears to be unavailable, however.

Pep Guardiola said on Friday:

All of them, they are getting better. Aymeric [Laporte] is back, training the last two, three days, I don’t know if he’s available for tomorrow. Kevin [De Bruyne] is not fit.

Guardiola’s injury update can be viewed here on YouTube.

Javi Gracia had positive news in his own press conference, meanwhile:

Today is a good day for me because I can say, today, all my players are available for the next game.

Chelsea v Wolverhampton Wanderers

All quiet on the injury front ahead of Sunday’s clash at Stamford Bridge, with not a single injury-related flag between the two clubs in FPL – though Ryan Bennett begins a two-match ban for the visitors.

Our interpretation of Chelsea’s Europa League minutes can be viewed in the Team News tab, with Maurizio Sarri’s press conference offering little insight into Gameweek 30.

Nuno Espirito Santo was his usual reticent self, though seemed to imply – without explicitly saying – that Rui Patricio will return in goal this weekend.

Regarding the rotation against Cardiff, the Wolves boss repeated his comments about the third match in a tough cycle of games being the one that “requires attention”.

Southampton v Tottenham Hotspur

Dele Alli (hamstring) has trained with the Spurs squad all week and is in contention ahead of the trip to Southampton, though Harry Winks (groin) will require assessment and Kieran Trippier (muscle) is a major doubt.

Mauricio Pochettino said:

It is very good news that Alli is going to be available. We need to wait till tomorrow, the last training session. I hope that he’s going to be available and maybe he can play Saturday.

I think Trips, no. He suffered a small problem but I think Trips is going to be out. Tomorrow we need to assess Harry Winks again. It’s a similar situation to what it was before Dortmund.

Ralph Hasenhuttl provided an update on Danny Ings (hamstring), meanwhile:

He is not in the group at the moment. We didn’t take any risks, we want to give him the time to come back in this three-week break after Tottenham. We have one friendly against a Championship team, maybe he can get 45 minutes in that.

Leicester City v Fulham

Jamie Vardy (head) is fit to feature for Leicester City this weekend.

Brendan Rodgers said on Thursday:

He is fine. He took a bad knock and had a couple of stitches in his tongue from the collision he had. He’s trained very well and he’ll be fine for the weekend.

Andre Schurrle (virus), Alfie Mawson (knee) and Marcus Bettinelli (knee) remain out for the Cottagers.

Cardiff City v West Ham United

Aaron Cresswell (toe/head) and Fabian Balbuena (knee) are available for West Ham’s trip to Fulham.

Manuel Pellegrini said on Thursday:

Cresswell worked with the team the last two days so he won’t have any problems. Balbuena played 45 minutes for the under-23 team on Monday, also without any problems. I think they are both available for selection.

The Hammers’ boss also commented on Manuel Lanzini‘s recent return:

It wasn’t my original idea as I wanted him to play 65-70 minutes maximum [v Newcastle] but he said he was OK and he worked without any problems and played the whole game. He is ready and recovered.

On Javier Hernandez and Marko Arnautovic, Pellegrini added:

I am pleased with Javier. He is in a good moment and is making good movements in the attacking areas. Every striker wants to score more goals but he is contributing well. We also have Marko coming back, so I think we have options.

Maybe one of them for different reasons must wait in this moment or they can play both together, but in having good options for a manager, it’s a solution, not a problem.

Sol Bamba (knee) has been ruled out for the season but is Neil Warnock’s only confirmed absentee so far.

The Cardiff boss said:

The back four takes care of itself tomorrow.

I left Josh [Murphy] out [against Wolves] altogether because he’s been very, very poor for a couple of weeks, in training. It’s lack of confidence. And yet he’s one player who can just spark us off.

Victor Camarasa, I know he wasn’t 100 per cent but he had to play last week to get a game under his belt. He’ll be a lot better this week.

[Paterson is] a great asset to have. I’ve not written him off anywhere. It’s just, would you pick him in front of Niasse or Ken? Would you put him at right wing-back, at right-wing, in midfield behind the striker ahead of Camarasa?

Huddersfield Town v Bournemouth

Eddie Howe provided an update on Callum Wilson (knee) on Friday morning.

The Bournemouth boss said:

He’s done some light training this week, he’s been back on the grass for the first time and has looked pretty good. I’ll have to consult with Callum and the physios and see how he feels.

Steve Cook (groin) has been ruled out for “five to six weeks”, meanwhile.

Jan Siewert has a multitude of injury problems ahead of Gameweek 30.

The Huddersfield boss said:

I think we are short on numbers! Hoggy still has problems with his ribs, isn’t good at all. Demeaco with his hip, he’s not able to play. Depoitre has a problem with his foot, I’m not quite sure if it’s possible for him at the weekend.

Siewert confirmed that Jason Puncheon and Jon Stankovic are available for selection but Adama Diakhaby (hamstring) and Isaac Mbenza (calf) remain out.

Newcastle United v Everton

Rob Elliot (back) and Ciaran Clark (knock) have been joined on the sidelines by Sean Longstaff, who looks set to miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.

Marco Silva only has worries over two veteran defenders ahead of the trip to Tyneside, meanwhile:

Leighton [Baines], not ready. Started to work with the team but not fully. Jags [Jagielka] is out of the last two sessions, also. All the others are okay.

Crystal Palace v Brighton and Hove Albion

Roy Hodgson’s presser was thin on team news but it is expected that
Mamadou Sakho (knee) and Pape Souare (shoulder) remain out.

Chris Hughton, meanwhile, provided the following update:

At this moment, only Pascal Gross is unavailable this weekend. We’ll see how it goes this week, he’s not training but has been doing some good work. He has a chance for [the FA Cup tie versus] Millwall. Leon Balogun is now back in training.

    Boruc
    TAA | Doherty | Peltier
    Salah | Mane | Son | Pogba | Camarasa
    Kane | Aguero

    Speroni* | Bednarek | Bennett* | Kamara*

    1FT, 0ITB.

    Save FT? Likely will play FH in GW31.

    Thanks

    1. Differential (c)
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Save FT.

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Thanks

    2. aborg
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      If you are FH’ing 31 you will lose saved transfers so better do the changes you need to make today.
      I am on 31 too and probably getting in Sterling for Salah and replacing back for FH 31

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        True, though I suppose if for any reason I choose not to I can use the 2FT to get playing players in

    3. YEAH PITCH!
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Who's your captain?

      1. aborg
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Will be captaining Sterling as probably bringing him in instead of Salah for this GW

      2. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Salah

    4. Right back Atsu
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Save, looks good.

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Thanks

    5. AnzhiBabakin (AKA: FC Akhma…
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Save or do 2 moves. 1 won't help.

  2. aborg
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Sterling or Salah? I can’t keep both and will captain the one I choose.

    1. kennethrhcp
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Salah. playw in 31 and 33

      1. aborg
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        I am FH 31 so will be bringing him back in on 31 and then us FT to bring Mane in for 32. Still Salah?

        1. kennethrhcp
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          changes it obviously. if 32 gets a few more games it might hurt ya tho

    2. *sigh*
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Salah unless you want 11.4m player on your bench twiddling his thumbs next week while Mo takes a chunk out of Fulham. Its also easier to swap to the cheaper player laters.

      1. aborg
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        As I said in previous post, I am in FH 31 and bringing Salah back in for Fulham game. Still same opinion?

        1. *sigh*
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          Salah unless you want 11.4m player on your bench twiddling his thumbs gw33 while Mo takes a chunk out of Southampton. Its also easier to swap to the cheaper player laters.

          1. aborg
            • 2 Years
            3 months, 12 days ago

            Haha you’re funny. I have a plan for Salah also for 33.
            Basically I need to gain 25 points from the leader of my ML. He will probably be captaining Salah and I want a strong differential especially this week.

  3. konrad.sygula95
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 12 days ago

    What would you do?
    A) Lacazette to Vardy
    B) Jimenez to Zaha

    1. Fantasy Gold
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      A

    2. kennethrhcp
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      a. off the top of my head dont palace blank in 31?

    3. Freddiebell
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      A

    4. Ojpsan1
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 12 days ago

      A, palace blanks 31 and might blank 33 also.

  4. kennethrhcp
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    starting Anderson over rondon... madness due to his form or do it due to fixture?

    1. Jᴀʀᴠish
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Rondon surely

    2. Birmingham Bromwich Villa
      3 months, 12 days ago

      If Anderson can’t do it Against Cardiff and Huddersfield then he should join a league two side next year.

      1. Jᴀʀᴠish
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        So by this logic 5 or 6 West Ham players should haul in the next 2 games. You may be getting West Ham confused with Barcelona.

        1. MINUS FOUR
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 12 days ago

          Did you watch the Watford-Cardiff game? It's not impossible.

          1. Jᴀʀᴠish
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 12 days ago

            I've watched West Ham games lately. 8 goals in last 8 games, and at least half those goals from defenders/penalties

            1. Birmingham Bromwich Villa
              3 months, 12 days ago

              ‘Lately’ isn’t next two fixtures.
              You may be getting Cardiff and Huddersfield confused with average to good Premier league quality

    3. THFC4LIFE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Start Rondón

    4. kennethrhcp
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      thanks for the replies lads!

      2-2 (including my opinion)... I'll keep thinking it over

    5. WE GO FOR IT
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Have both so I will be hoping both do well. If I had to choose one, I'd go Rondon.

    6. #FPLBhuna
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Anderson

  5. Kabayan
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    A. Pogba + Rashford (Salah ©)
    Or
    B. Kun (C) + Brooks (-4)

    1. Fantasy Gold
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      B

    2. kennethrhcp
      • 8 Years

      what's the chip strategy?

      1. Kabayan
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        FH32

        1. kennethrhcp
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          a for me so a d them maybe look at the United lads out for 31 if not too much value in them

  6. Fantasy_Serbia
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Anderson, Salah, Hazard

        1. Right back Atsu
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 12 days ago

          I'd say so. Guita is my only keeper so I hope he plays but doubt vs giants Duffy and friends.

    4. Unbelievable Jeff!
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      A. West Ham only had 5 clean sheets, Palace have had 9. Brighton have scored 5 more goals than Cardiff this season but away form is particularly poor

      Yes

  14. Maddamotha
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Is it worth doing Son > Mane? Already have Salah and TAA. Burnley might put up a block and Liverpool might struggle to break them down?

    1. Colonel Shoe 肝池
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      i would plus its good planning for the blank

      1. Maddamotha
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Yeah sure. I will make the move next week anyways, and I could do Højbjerg > Brooks as well this week. Might be good to have a Spurs player against Southampton?

    Surely you play Anderson or sell the dude.

    It’s cardiff and Huddersfield next.

    His form hasn’t been against sides as poor as these two.

    I’ve been disappointed by Anderson but left him in as expect points in both of next two

    His second last chance today and last chance next week,

    Players like him along with FA Cup results will influence my FH32/WC34 versus WC32/FH33 or later as if he flops in next two against such poor opponents then he ain’t getting near my squad come Chelsea in 33.

    1. Right back Atsu
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      I'm playing Anderson, 3 points is a success for me at his price point.

  22. La Roja
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Best option here?

    A) Son ➡ Mane
    B) Barnes ➡ Zaha
    C) Rashford ➡ Vardy

    1. jeff09
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Probably C - if you’re FH32 - Leicester play both blanks have have good fixtures

      1. La Roja
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        I have to FH31 though

    I am trying to make up ground in my mini league, so need to start making bold moves. Basically all my competition still have Pogba so looking to lose him, is it worth a - 4 anywhere?
    Fabianski Hamer
    Robertson Periera Doherty AWB Bednarak
    Salah Mane Haz Pogba Richarlison
    Jiminez Arnie Rondon

    If I do Pogba - > Brooks I will have 5.1 ITB. What other moves could I make, specifically up front, that are worth doing now?

    1. 007 [RoboKlopp]
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Maybe buy some strong differential player like Higuain or Vardy?

    2. benbro
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Vardy for Arnie for me. I don’t see much value in the more expensive options given blanks 31 and 33. Kinda depends on your chip strategy though.

  24. Fernando Torres
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Captain
    A) Salah
    B) Robbo
    C) TAA
    D) Vardy

    1. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Salah I would say just

    2. benbro
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Depends on what your balls are made of. Vardy is tempting but I’m moat likely to do Salah

  25. Daghe Munegu
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Mad or Brooks?
    And cap Sterling or Salah?

    1. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 12 days ago

      STerling

    2. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Maddison

  26. Crunchie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Just a quickly lads and lasses.

    Bench
    A.Rashford or Jiminez?
    B. AWB / Doherty?

    1. mookie
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Jim and Doh.

    2. Right back Atsu
      • 5 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Dunno on A, but bench Doherty in B.

      1. Crunchie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Thanks definitely agree on B actually. My gut thoughts.

        Just Jiminez like big games 🙂

    3. Freddiebell
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Bench Doc & Jimmy

    Damn, Kolasinac went down 0.1m last night so now I can't afford the upgrade to Luiz. Alterntives for £5.8m ?

    1. Differential (c)
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Emerson

    2. benbro
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Sounds ideal for Peireira / Chilwell. Depending on your chip strategy and where you are with the rest of your team

  28. Differential (c)

    Commented that the news of Pep to Juve was BS a few pages back.
    Just checked twitter, that s**t is blowing up, wow.

    It makes a catchy headline, but BS is BS. No way Pep is happy with only 1 league title, and no CL glory. Hard to belive he stays.

    I can imagine it already.
    Arteta: "Allegri might be otw out, you interested?"

    Pep:"Meh, its interesting"

    Every New Outlet;"PEP GUARDIOLA ALREADY HAS REACHED A VERBAL AGREEMENT WITH JUVENTUS, AGREEMENT ALREADY MADE!"

    1. Kiwivillan

      Just like when Nursey wrote saying Jack Grealish refusing to play for Villa after Spurs move blocked and Jack's brother went on his Twitter page and posted no he isn't

  29. Good Kompany
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Who to cap?

    1) Salah
    2) Mane
    3) Sterling

    1. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 12 days ago

      City over Liverpool today IMO

    2. Differential (c)
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Salah

    3. #FPLBhuna
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      3

    4. Birmingham Bromwich Villa
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Go with who you think. Mane or sterling if chasing

  30. Brunsvigeren
    • 3 Years
    3 months, 12 days ago

    Ederson
    Robertson - Pereira - TAA
    Anderson - Hazard - Salah(c) - Barnes - Brooks
    Arnaoutovich - Vardy

    Bench, Fabianski, Doherty, Jimenes, Digne

    Good to go? Im on -4, and ready for gw31

    Ranked 2700 atm

    1. Brunsvigeren
      • 3 Years
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Maybe Digne instead of Arnie?

    2. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 12 days ago

      Jiminez > Barnes IMO, but you are 2700th?

      1. Brunsvigeren
        • 3 Years
        3 months, 12 days ago

        Rank 2691, yes
