FPL Team News and Injury Round-up – Gameweek 38

Friday was a busy day on the team news front as 19 Premier League managers delivered their pre-match press conferences.

Maurizio Sarri held a brief presser after Chelsea’s penalty shootout victory over Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday, so we have now heard from all top-flight managers as we finalise our preparations for Gameweek 38.

Our match-by-match summary below details the headline injury updates and manager quotes but there is more information to be found in our Team News tab.

Our YouTube round-up of the Premier League pressers can be viewed via this link or in the embedded video at the bottom of the page.

Liverpool v Wolverhampton Wanderers

Jurgen Klopp said on Friday that Andrew Robertson (calf) and Jordan Henderson (knee) “should be fine” after they picked up knocks in midweek, while Mohamed Salah (head) is expected to recover after training in the run-up to Sunday’s game.

Klopp said:

The famous three words of this week in the dressing room: ‘It’s only pain.’

Very important for all the young lads to learn, I’ve said that already to the boys. Hendo said, ‘It’s only pain’, Robbo said, ‘It’s only pain’ – but it was real pain, wow!

Unfortunately, Robbo could deal with the pain but only the rest of his body couldn’t because he couldn’t really activate the muscle anymore, some nerve hit or whatever.

They should be fine [for Sunday].

Mo looked good around the celebrations after the game, to be honest! The day before yesterday and yesterday he was running outside and will be part of training today.

There isn’t such good news on Roberto Firmino (muscle), however.

Klopp added:

Bobby not [available] for the weekend, but we have time [before the Champions League final] and that should be enough.

Nuno Espirito Santo didn’t report any fresh injury concerns in his pre-match presser.

Brighton and Hove Albion v Manchester City

Fernandinho (knee) won’t recover in time to face Brighton but Kevin De Bruyne (muscle) has returned to training in the last few days and could be involved at the Amex on Sunday.

On De Bruyne, Pep Guardiola said:

He trained the last two days with us, part of the training session. Tomorrow we are going to last train. He could [be involved].

About Fernandinho, the City boss added:

He’s not able. Maybe [for the FA Cup final], we’ll see.

Davy Propper (hamstring) and Jose Izquierdo (knee) will miss the visit of City but Chris Hughton said he otherwise had a fully-fit squad to choose from.

Manchester United v Cardiff City

Eric Bailly (knee) remains on the sidelines and Romelu Lukaku (hamstring) is expected to remain out, while Alexis Sanchez (ankle) is a fresh injury concern after picking up a knock in the 1-1 draw with Huddersfield.

Sergio Romero (knee), Mason Greenwood (unspecified) and Jesse Lingard (knee) have been pictured back in training and could all return to the matchday squad, with Greenwood potentially in line for a start given his manager’s comments today:

We’ve had some young players knocking on the door all season and we’ll start with one or two of the kids.

Antonio Valencia leaves United in the summer and could be involved for the final time on Sunday.

Solskjaer said:

He’s not been fit the five months I’ve been here, unfortunately. He’s really struggled but he feels that he could play a part, yes, and I would hope that he gets through today and tomorrow and we could give him a nice send-off.

Asked about Ander Herrera‘s availability given the speculation surrounding the midfielder’s future, the United boss added:

He might play. I don’t know yet, we haven’t picked the team. He’ll probably announce himself later on where he’s going to continue his football.

Anthony Martial was also listed as a doubt by the United website after missing out last weekend.

Harry Arter (calf) and Victor Camarasa (dead leg) remain major doubts for the trip to Old Trafford.

Neil Warnock said:

Victor [Camarasa], I’m desperately trying to get him fit. It’s a nasty dead leg. I was gutted when he went off last week. He just looked back to himself in that first ten minutes. We thank Harry [Arter] for all of his efforts this season.

Victor, he’s been struggling all week, I can’t see Victor making it. But you just don’t know with Victor. I don’t think Harry has any chance.

Tottenham Hotspur v Everton

Mauricio Pochettino is down to the bare bones for Sunday’s match against Everton, with Harry Kane (ankle), Harry Winks (groin) and Jan Vertonghen (ankle) injured and Son Heung-min and Juan Foyth suspended.

Danny Rose (hamstring) and Victor Wanyama (thigh) will be assessed after picking up strains in midweek, while Davinson Sanchez (thigh) is “continuing rehab” and is also set to be unavailable.

Serge Aurier (hamstring) is back in training, at least.

Asked about Vertonghen’s availability for the Champions League final in June, Pochettino said:

We need to assess. I think it is not a big issue because he finished the game but it’s true that now his ankle is swollen. We hope it is not a big problem.

Richarlison (rib) and Dominic Calvert-Lewin (knock) are out of Sunday’s clash, while Seamus Coleman (groin) will be assessed.

Marco Silva said:

[Calvert-Lewin] is not able to play the next match. It was a kick in the training session, nothing special.

Let’s see if Coleman also can play or not, he will be a doubt, let’s see if tomorrow will be. Small problem in his groin.

The situation with Richarlison, he came out the last game with a problem in the rib. He will be out the next game, definitely.

Southampton v Huddersfield Town

Maya Yoshida (illness) remains out for Southampton but there was positive news from Ralph Hasenhuttl regarding the Saints’ key FPL assets.

Hasenhuttl said:

We have still one game to go. We will have a few changes and change back to the shape we were playing before, with the players that played before. That means that Angus [Gunn] is playing at the weekend again.

Erik Durm (glute) won’t feature at St. Mary’s while Zanka (illness) hasn’t been able to train properly and Chris Lowe has what his manager described as a “small problem”.

Crystal Palace v Bournemouth

Scott Dann is a fresh injury doubt for Palace this weekend.

Roy Hodgson said on Friday:

We’ll have to assess Scott Dann tomorrow because he left training today feeling a slight strain. That’s the only one that could possibly be added to the ones we’ve had for the last few weeks.

Eddie Howe is without nine players on Sunday and said:

David Brooks will miss out. None of the players that were unavailable last week are back.

Howe also explained why Asmir Begovic won’t be involved this weekend:

We decided to play Mark [Travers], we rested Asmir. He’s been given the final week of the season off to spend some extended time with his family.

Leicester City v Chelsea

Brendan Rodgers didn’t report any fresh fitness concerns in his pre-match press conference on Friday but Daniel Amartey (leg) remains out.

Speaking of Chelsea’s injury situation on Thursday night, Maurizio Sarri said:

We lost [Andreas] Christensen, we lost [Ruben] Loftus-Cheek. We started the match with three injuries, two injuries during the match. Not a serious problem [with Loftus-Cheek], he had the usual cramp after 75 minutes.

For sure it will be very difficult for Sunday but we need to consider that our best match, in my opinion, was against Tottenham, three days after 120 minutes in the cup final against Man City. Now it’s more difficult because we played 61 matches.

We need to rest. Unfortunately, we have to go to the United States to play a [friendly] match and then we have ten days to prepare the match.

It is not easy to recover after a match like this, especially mentally. Physically I think that we can recover, not 100%, but we can recover. Mentally it will be very difficult.

Burnley v Arsenal

Unai Emery didn’t provide any fitness updates in his pre-match press conference but Sead Kolasinac reportedly picked up an injury in the win over Valencia on Thursday and maybe a doubt this weekend. 

We will hopefully be provided with an updated medical bulletin by Arsenal ahead of Sunday’s deadline.

Speaking on Friday, Emery said:

We arrived home at 6am and today we cancelled training because it’s important to rest. Tomorrow we are going to prepare the match for Sunday. I am going to decide with the players who are hungry and in good physical condition to play this match.

Sean Dyche confirmed that Phil Bardsley (gashed leg) is fit to be involved but added that James Tarkowski has missed training sessions this week as his partner has given birth.

Aaron Lennon (knee) is unlikely to feature and Steven Defour (calf) remains out.

Watford v West Ham United

Etienne Capoue (groin) returns for Watford this weekend.

Speaking of the Hornets’ injury situation, Javi Gracia said:

In this moment we have Domingos Quina and Sebastian Prodl injured and the rest of the players are available. We recover Capoue, last week he was injured and he will be available for the next game.

Asked about possible rotation ahead of the FA Cup final, Gracia said:

All my players are ready to play. All the squad and me, as well, are only focused on this game. In this moment, we prepare as best as possible the next game and after we have enough time to prepare the final, as well.

Sometimes you think it is better to rest some players and after it is not the best decision. I prefer to take decisions thinking only of the next game. The next game is important.

The players can be injured in a training session out of the ground, you never know. It is better to keep the same attitude and try to win the next game.

Felipe Anderson and Declan Rice have recovered from illness while Robert Snodgrass is available again after serving a one-match ban last weekend.

Andy Carroll (ankle), Andriy Yarmolenko (Achilles) and Winston Reid (knee) remain out.

Fulham v Newcastle United

Injury updates were thin on the ground in Scott Parker’s press conference on Friday, with talk dominated of his permanent appointment as manager.

Denis Odoi (concussion) could be back in contention on Sunday, however.

Ki Sung-yueng (knee) is the latest addition to Newcastle’s injury list.

    Leading mini league by 7pts and 11pts from nearest challengers. They each have Aguero + 1 city (Sterling and Laporte). I only have Aguero.

    Seriously considering the following:

    Hazard + Doherty > Sterling + Kompany (-4)

    Should I just do Doherty > Kompany? Not enough itb to only do Haz > Sterling for free.

    Will be doubly tempted if I can see they've taken a hit too. Thoughts?

    1. Amey
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Doherty to kompony only.
        Keep Hazard

        if you're leading by 7 is your nearest challenger not 7 points away?

        if you can see that theyve taken a hit too then yes, otherwise id just get Kompany

        1. radawson
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Yep exactly. I’m leading with guy in 2nd 7pts behind me, and third 11 pts behind me

      Who starts, Sunday? Origi or Sturridge?

      1. wernerhedgehog
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Origi. Can't see why not.

      2. bench boost for every gamew…
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Based on performance Origi but Klopp will have his tactics vs a five man defence and that will affect who he thinks will suit that tactical approach. Which player against a packed five man def is best suited, will Klopp prefer Mané to be striker which leaves origi as the best option out wide, will he think Sturridge positional cleverness and vision is best suited alongside Mane and salah? Or will he have the pace and physique and also press play that is origi? My guess is Sturridge, but not based on much really.

    3. Annie
      • 6 Years

      a) Mane+ Haz + Long
      b) Salah + Redmond + Jiménez
      c) Pogba + Mane + Jiménez

        Really struggling this week! Got 2 free transfers. Son replacement seems like a bit of a lottery and for the second I was thinking about improving a gk. any advice would be gratefully received! Cheers

        Etheridge (boruc)
        Taa, Doherty, Laporte (luiz, Bednarek)
        Mane, son, sterling, Eriksen (hojberg)
        Aguero,wilson, jiminez

        1. pingissimus
            1 month, 8 days ago

            How about Erik and Son to Mo? Not sure what change that gives you. If you can’t reach JWP you could play Hoj or even go McNeill.

            I’d leave Etheridge in if only for save points

          • AnyLaporteinastorm
            • 9 Years

            Gd shout. Didn’t think of that. Cheers!

        2. Fernando Torres
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Bilva or Vardy?

          1. Legomané
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Vardy

          2. Legomané
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 8 days ago

            But I do like Bilva a lot too

          3. Fernando Torres
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Would you get both in for a hit and bench either Jimi/Jota or JWP?

          4. Magic Zico
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 8 days ago

            No hit? If taking hit, depending on the other pair swap. In my case, Vardy Fraser or B Silva Wilson and I prefer the former.

            1. Fernando Torres
              • 7 Years
              1 month, 8 days ago

              I am getting rid of Son and Firmino if I do this. Currently if I get rid of one I am playing JWP, Jota and Jimi

              1. Magic Zico
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                1 month, 8 days ago

                Firmino Vardy then

              2. Magic Zico
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                1 month, 8 days ago

                Or bringing both for a hit if you dare

                1. Fernando Torres
                  • 7 Years
                  1 month, 8 days ago

                  I am 7 ahead in ML with rival having TC (he will TC Sterling) whilst I am capting Aguero

                  1. Magic Zico
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    1 month, 8 days ago

                    Ok tough hey. Pick the one most potentially explosive and probably don’t take any hit. Vardy?

                    1. Fernando Torres
                      • 7 Years
                      1 month, 8 days ago

                      Yh makes sense. Vardy more explosive than Bilva?

                      1. Magic Zico
                        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                        1 month, 8 days ago

                        On second thought, you have opportunity to block your rival by bringing in Sterling? Sterling Wilson in possible?

                        1. Fernando Torres
                          • 7 Years
                          1 month, 8 days ago

                          I have Sterling just not capting him. He has Wilson and I dont

                          1. Magic Zico
                            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                            1 month, 8 days ago

                            Cool, back to the start Vardy

                            1. Fernando Torres
                              • 7 Years
                              1 month, 8 days ago

                              Haha thanks! So youd definitely rather play all of Jimi/Jota/JWP than get Bilva for a -4

                            2. Magic Zico
                              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                              1 month, 8 days ago

                              He needs to do more than a goal to benefit, possible but tough

          5. Cantonascollar7
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Vardy

          • 7 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Morning. 25 points ahead of ml rival. 1ft, so:

          A - son to redmond / Fraser
          B - as above, and jimi to vardy (-4)

          Ta !

          1. Legomané

            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 1 Year
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Redmond has the fixture. Both high scoring potential though. Jimmy to Vardy for a hit feels very punty indeed! I like it but not sure I'd do it for a hit personally.

            1. Malkmus
              • 7 Years

            I don't understand your thinking. Why don't you just swap Son for Pogba and play Hojberg?

            1. Legomané
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 8 days ago

              Poggy perhaps, but Hoj is fodder material - happy for him to be bench backup only. I have 2FT too.

              But TBH I'd rather downgrade Son to fund Hojbjerg > Redmond than get Pogba (would mean Quaner on the bench, Robbo doubt and not much room for manoeuvre to cover famous GW38 rotation- ended up with just 10 players last season after a hit!)

          3. Team Cruel
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Son Hoj > Redmond + someone

            1. Legomané
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 1 Year
              1 month, 8 days ago

              Redmond + 7.5 is possible. I like it but concerned about heavily Final day rotation and a super light bench (Quaner, Robbo doubt)

              1. Team Cruel
                • 3 Years
                1 month, 8 days ago

                If the United leaker posts early I'd maybe look at Son + Q > Pogba + Greenwood.

              49 points behind my ML leader (which I’m quite bitter about as I had the lead for 30 weeks).
              I’m on a free hit and have the ideal City and Pool heavy team.
              I was just thinking, is it worth going for a team of differentials to really go out with a bang? Avoid all the obvious picks that might blank and really mix it up? Would you?

                Might as well mix it up, if you are picking players your opponent has there's no chance of a 50pt swing.

                You'll have to get all the key players that your oppo doesn't have - and hope. 49 points is a huge ask though. Try to pick differentials who at least have the chance of a big score - Digne for instance. Good luck.

                  Tempted as bringing him in for a hit, captaining would cover it

                    1ft -

                    A) Duffy > Kompany
                    B) Son > Bilva (or other)

                    Foster (Ryan)
                    Taa Valery Robbo* ( Doherty, DUFFY)
                    Mane Sterling Deulofeu Jota (Son)
                    Aguero Rashford Jimenez

                    After transfer I would bench either Jimmy or Jota.

                    C) Son to Pogba/Redmond/Fraser/Tielemans?

                    I think I need a bit of a reality check here.

                    Looking at the scout squad, there is almost zero love for Wilson and Fraser...am I completely overestimating their potential away to Palace?

                    I have Wilson. One of my potential transfers is Son to Pogba but I’m more likely to go to Fraser and double him up with Wilson.

                        I wouldn't double up but I'm happy to play the one I have. In fact I just got Fraser in.

                          It does, but both Jota and Raul has done well against the top teams. Peronally not that confident Soton will destroy Huddersfield. But yeah, it makes sense.

                        A: Redmond + Jimenez....already have JWP if that makes a difference

                                Would you take a hit and cover TAA from team A if you're defending a 3 point lead?

                              With a 37pt lead is it worth taking hits to cover my closest opponents dangermen??
                              -8 to bring in Aguero & Wilson for example??

                                Also depends on who you are losing to get them? I find if you start looking back, you end up going backwards. Guess 38 isn’t the worst week to start covering tho

                                  I would normally put forward a suggestion but since I captained Duffy, I am no longer in a position to judge wild selections!

                                    Maybe the second time will pay off the first error 😉

                                      He’s firmly on the blacklist for the foreseeable. A list that does include Redmond, for different reasons tho

                                  Mane or TAA

                                • DA Minnion

                                  Sterling or Salah.

                                Which one do you prefer?

                                A) Jimenez - Fraser
                                B) Jota - Wilson (bench Son)
                                C) Tielemans - Vardy (-4)
                                D) Jimenez + any other 8.9 mid

                                I'm 0.1 off Fraser + Vardy, unfortunately. Also tripled up on Soton, so can't do Redmond.

                                  Oh, actually can't afford B. Only 6.6 available.

                                Would you do any of these for a hit?

                                Lacazette->Vardy
                                Jimenez->Zaha
                                Jota->Redmond

                                  Jota Redmond if you must

                                If Robbo doesnt play Duffy will have to come on..

                                Would you

                                a) Som & Robbo > Mane & Laporte (-4)
                                b) Son > B.Silva

                                I'm leading my mini league by 24 points, my nearest rival has both Mane & Laporte.

                                  I think both moves have there merits. A looks fine, probably going to do well out of it and closes 2 dangers to your lead for very little expense. Guess it depends, do you feel the rest of your team is looking stronger than theirs to make the more defensive move?

                                Give me a player most likely to haul this week as a punt. Someone out of the norm.

                                  Deulofeu is a dark horse imo

                                  We'd all like to know that wouldn't we. Deeney?

                                    Either a red card or brace.

                                  The amount of crosses cpal have conceded from their right flank in last 6 weeks are horrendous. So much for Wan bisaka and his defensive abilities.

                                  Fraser could have a field day.

                                    Wilson (c) worth a punt?

                                  Son to which one Pogba/Redmond/Fraser/Babel?

                                  Anything else needed or worth taking a hit for?
