Kane suffers hamstring tear as Heaton and Wesley are ruled out for the season

There is no Fantasy Premier League deadline to worry about this weekend but there is no less team news to report, with many of the Premier League managers (or their assistants) holding press conferences on Friday ahead of the FA Cup third round.

There are several notable injury updates to bring you.

Tottenham Hotspur confirmed late this afternoon that, following assessment today, Harry Kane suffered a tear in his left hamstring during the defeat to Southampton.

The club’s medical staff will continue to review the injury and no timeframe has been put on his return but Jose Mourinho said in his presser earlier:

I don’t know yet, maybe later today we have news but if you ask me just my feeling – good news or bad news – I am more on bad news than good news, that’s my feeling.

Some opinions from the medical department before the test results: I don’t think we’re going to have good news. We can say that no Middlesbrough [in the FA Cup] for Harry Kane.

The Special One also provided an update on Tanguy Ndombele (hip), saying:

In this moment he can’t give anything because he is injured. What he can give is what he gave against Norwich which was clearly a very, very good performance.

Spurs earlier confirmed that Eric Dier (illness) and Kyle Walker-Peters (calf) have returned to training.

Son Heung-min is available after suspension but Ben Davies (ankle), Hugo Lloris (elbow) and Danny Rose (calf) remain out.

From one premium striker to another.

Brendan Rodgers said of Jamie Vardy‘s calf problem on Friday:

He’s coming along very well. He’s done some good work with the medical team and he’ll be back out on the [training] pitch tomorrow. He’s not available for the [FA Cup] game but he’ll be training with us Sunday.

Rodgers confirmed that everyone else was fit, with Matty James (Achilles) set to feature for the under-23s tonight.

Aston Villa delivered a double dose of bad news this morning, disclosing that Tom Heaton and Wesley will miss the remainder of the season.

The pair suffered knee ligament damage in the 2-1 victory over Burnley on New Year’s Day.

Discussing who could fill in for the pair ahead of some possible transfer moves in January, Dean Smith said:

Our only fit striker at the club at the minute is Jonathan Kodija. Keinan Davis was training last week but he still felt a tightness in his hamstring.

We’ve got Ørjan Nyland and Lovre Kalinic who are both full internationals, we’ve got a lad on loan at Livingston, Matija Sarkic, who is a Montenegro international.

Pep Guardiola clarified Manchester City’s fitness situation, saying:

Ederson was sick. He came to the Everton game very bad. Today he trained and he feels better. Nico [Otamendi] is getting better too. Tomorrow he won’t play but in the next days he can be with the squad again.

On Aymeric Laporte (knee), Guardiola added:

He trained with the team for 10, 15 minutes, the rest individually and he is getting better. He feels good and in the next few weeks he will complete all the training sessions for us. I don’t know, I think he will dictate [his return date].

Diogo Jota won’t feature for Wolves against Manchester United, meanwhile.

Nuno Espirito Santo said of his striker on Friday:

Unfortunately, Diogo is not available. In the last game, the moment of the red card for Kabasele, no intention at all, but he had a strong impact. Tomorrow and probably the next days, he’s out.

He’s being assessed, he’s done an MRI, but it’s not good. We have to wait for all the blood, that the impact caused, to go down, so the doc can evaluate him better and assess him. After that, we’ll have a proper look at the diagnosis.

The Red Devils will again be without Paul Pogba (ankle), whose manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said of the Frenchman and United’s other injuries:

Paul came back after a long spell out, two games, had a reaction. Felt his ankle was sore, we did a scan. It’s not the same injury. It’s not a major one, probably three or four weeks.

Axel [Tuanzebe], Eric [Bailly], Tim [Fosu-Mensah] are getting closer but won’t be ready for this. Rojo won’t be ready for this but getting back. There’s feelings of illness and cold, which is normal around about this time.

Ahead of the Merseyside derby, Jurgen Klopp said he was none-the-wiser about the severity of Naby Keita‘s groin injury:

He will have a scan today, I don’t know exactly when but somebody will then tell me the result of this. That didn’t happen yet.

On Liverpool’s other injuries, Klopp said:

Shaqiri looks good; in a good way, will not be available for [Sunday] but looks good. OxladeChamberlain looks good. Joel [Matip] looks good. Dejan Lovren, spoke last night, looking good. Fabinho out on the pitch doing the running stuff.

They are really all in a good way, our only problem is the games are coming so quick, that’s why there’s no real news. Most of them will not be available. Then we have eight days until the next game, so we will see what’s then possible.

Across the city, Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti said:

On Bernard, we will check today in training. Schneiderlin has trained with us, I think he is available to play. We had a problem with Fabian Delph, he had a knock on his knee. He had a scan yesterday, it seems good but we will see.

Roy Hodgson today revealed that Mamadou Sakho (hamstring) will be sidelined for “a considerable period” of time.

On Palace’s other injured players, Hodgson said:

Gary Cahill had his first training session today which is positive. One in, one out in terms of training bodies.

Wilf Zaha played with an injury on Wednesday. It was really touch and go: we didn’t know until the day he’d get on the field. I think it’s very unlikely we’ll be able to do that to him again on Sunday.

David Moyes reported a few minor concerns in his press conference, saying:

Lukasz Fabianski didn’t train today but if he is fit then he will start at the weekend.

Mark Noble didn’t train today and Aaron Cresswell didn’t train today. You could see Cress was limping at the end of Bournemouth and Nobes got his metatarsal stood on.

The other one is Michail Antonio. I saw him on the grass today, but I don’t think he will be ready for the game.

Ogbonna didn’t train today either, so he’s another one we will keep an eye on.

Ahead of the Blues’ match against Nottingham Forest on Sunday, Chelsea assistant boss Jody Morris said:

Injury-wise, Alonso is looking like he’s definitely out and Ruben [Loftus-Cheek] is the obvious one. Apart from that, we’re still having a look at a few players to see what the fallout is like from the Brighton game.

Fikayo [Tomori] trained today but he’s still not feeling the best himself, he’s got a bit of a bug as well. Olivier [Giroud] is OK.

Newcastle United have serious injury problems heading into the match against Rochdale, with Steve Bruce saying of Jetro Willems (groin), Javier Manquillo (hamstring), Jonjo Shelvey (hamstring) and Fabian Schär (hamstring):

None of them will play. I can’t see any of them being available for Wolves. In terms of severity, probably the worst is Manquillo. We think Schar and Willems are not too bad, they could be a grade I or II, which is two to three weeks.

On the Magpies’ other walking wounded, Bruce added:

Yedlin, we think, might be OK. He’s got a terrible hand injury, thankfully it’s not broken, but he’s going to be OK.

Dummett, Clark, Lascelles, we all hope that maybe for Wolves, but certainly not the weekend.

Ritchie is training, and if all goes well today, then he’ll take part on the bench.

Norwich will be without Josip Drmic (hamstring) and Dennis Srbeny (back) this weekend. Ralf Fährmann (unknown) remains sidelined but a return to team training could occur next week.

On Teemu Pukki (hamstring), boss Daniel Farke said:

Teemu Pukki is out for tomorrow, he has a little hamstring strain. He’s struggling with his toe as well. I can’t predict whether he’s available for the Manchester United game.

Eddie Howe isn’t expecting any of his injured players back for the visit of Luton, saying:

This weekend, probably not, and the week after, we’ll wait and see.

Craig Shakespeare, sitting in for Nigel Pearson, said of Watford’s injury latest:

There’s four or five that have got knocks, they’re being assessed today. We’ve still got Will Hughes [out] from the previous game. Etienne Capoue has got a bit of a knock.

Yesterday Arsenal confirmed that Calum Chambers ruptured an ACL against Chelsea and will be sidelined for between six to nine months.

Hector Bellerin and Gabriel Martinelli (both hamstring) continue to be assessed, while Kieran Tierney (shoulder) is out until March.

Brighton boss Graham Potter meanwhile revealed that Dan Burn will be out for around six weeks after undergoing surgery on his injured shoulder but Solly March (groin) could return this weekend.

Sean Dyche confirmed that Danny Drinkwater will now return to parent club Chelsea in his media gathering, while Chris Wilder announced the signing of Jack Rodwell in his.

Ralph Hasenhuttl promised line-up changes for Southampton this weekend but didn’t provide any fresh injury updates.

      Rico... Bmth to bounce back

      1. fcsaltyballs
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        They beat Watford 4-0 after a poor run of form I believe last season

      2. Would Ed Woodward

        He's dead to me.

    3. smitch
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      I’d play Cantwell out of those options. As you say, attacking threat and I don’t trust Bournemouth

  2. Karan14
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Choose:

    A) Henderson & Dunk
    B) Ryan & Holgate

    1. DantheManinaPan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Henderson and Holgate not an option?

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        It is but Brighton have good long term fixtures plus Dunk offers attacking threat also.

        Also is Holgate definitely nailed?

    2. fcsaltyballs
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Don’t rely on Brighton defence...

      Hendo my keeper choice but don’t hang your hat too much on your def choice

      1. Karan14
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years

        Dunk will be in rotation with Lundy & Soy

      Losing rashford before Norwich for a -4 feels bad

      1. andres
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        So they said against ars...

        1. No Professionals
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Yeah, no one is allowed to blank. Take the hit.

  4. Greek Freak

    Over the Christmas period I had a choice to make for my last attacking spot - Ings or Lucas Moura. Unfortunately I got it wrong.

    That's in the past now. Do you think it's worth keeping Lucas Moura especially now that Kane is out? I seem to remember him thriving in the Champions League without Kane last season. Or shall I follow what most teams are doing, cut my losses and get Ings?

      Cut your losses

      Pool, then a resurgent Watford, Ok Nor but then mci fresh with reinforcements

      1. Greek Freak
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Thanks. Luckily I have the 2FTs to make the switch without a hit. Clutching at straws here perhaps, but is there any evidence to suggest Tottenham will do better against Liverpool (who will undoubtedly come at them repeatedly) than against teams they are expected to beat?

          1 month, 18 days ago

          Someone else will have to be optimistic about spurs - I’m hedging on them doing badly, they’ll probably do better than I want them to tho.

    2. Yank Revolution

      Cut losses, get Ings

      1. Dammed Utd
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Ings might move to Spurs with Kane out be good move for both parties

        1. Yank Revolution
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          I have not heard that rumor! If true, itd be great for Ings' prospects for the the near future

          1. Dammed Utd
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 18 days ago

            Watch this space I think Spurs will put a cheeky bid in for Ings

            1. Yank Revolution
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              Itd be fascinating if it happens.

              Btw, congrats on beating Wisconsin in The Rose Bowl, but my Buffs took you out in hoops last nite baby!

                Go Ducks, I missed that game dude I usually stream all the college hoops and ball games. Must have been watching NBA ...

                1 month, 18 days ago

                Hello YR. sorry to crash this conversation, just wanted to congratulate you on winning our friendly bet

                1. Yank Revolution
                  • 8 Years
                  1 month, 18 days ago

                  Haha, the Pope vs. Gazza points thing?

                  I never really did agree to 'bet' you, but thanks nonetheless... I certainly had my doubts over the entire Spurs defense over that period, which was really the main reason Pope outscored him.

                  1. HamezMace
                    • 5 Years
                    1 month, 18 days ago

                    That’s the one.
                    I thought we agreed a gentleman’s bet.

                    I was quite confident, but he’s been shocking! I don’t actually know what the difference was, but after Gaz got that haul of save points against Liverpool I don’t think he scored more than 2pts since.

                    1. Yank Revolution
                      • 8 Years
                      1 month, 18 days ago

                      You seemed very keen on him (and a wager of some sort!), but I had some faith in Pope (he had his ups and downs over the same period too). But yeah, Gazza wasn't lighting the world on fire post-Pool...team effort tho (Spurs seem allergic to cleanies).

                      1. HamezMace
                        • 5 Years
                        1 month, 18 days ago

                        Well no one better to have faith in than Pope I suppose!

                        I've switched to Fabianski now, and it’s already paying off.

                      2. Yank Revolution
                        • 8 Years
                        1 month, 18 days ago

                        Hah! He is fallible after all, however...Contemplating the same move to Fabianski...but can't this week (already took a hit). Pope at Chelsea isnt such a bad fixture.

                        I’m just a sucker for a DGWer.

                        Anyway, congratulations my American friend, and good luck for the rest of the season.

    3. Greek Freak

      Thanks all, seems pretty unanimous. I guess the only thing that made me hesitate is the feeling that Lucas Moura will be the de facto striker in Kane's absence.

      1. Dammed Utd
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        I got Moura I am keeping him

  5. syke63
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Think I'll bring in DCL before his rise tonight. He's due a rest and Everton have Kean and Tosun fit and both in need of game time. Seems a gamble worth taking?

      For whom?

      1. syke63
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Ings. Need to raise cash and he has harder fixtures.

    2. Yank Revolution

      Who is due a rest?

    3. fcsaltyballs

      1 month, 18 days ago

      Are you priced out if you miss the rise?

      Anything can happen this week, not just injury to DCL but others in your team and then you’d need to use another transfer

  6. Thunder Warrior
    • 5 Years

    Deulofeu or DCL?

    1. JT11fc

      Add Maupay into that and thats my dilema. DCL looks better in the long run

      b) Jimmy
      c) DCL

        Kane is out. Six weeks or so.

        Still undiced to get rid of Rashford after GW22. He is the best UTD asset to own but inconsitency is the problem despite Rash already having 12 FPL goals as well as assits. He will be my route to getting Son in after Liverpool. Son is just the better and more explosive option and with Kane out long term Son could be in for massive hauls playing up top...

        1. Ser Davos

          1 month, 18 days ago

          Not owned Rash all season and owned Son post Palace haul and nearly sold just prior to Jose's arrival.

          I think Rash is the better option all things considered. Very underrated on here, but has been superbly consistent since the Pool home game.

            also Spurs are resembling Jose's teams after 2-3 years, not 2-3 months

        Which defence is best to target this GW? Newcastle or Bournemouth?

        A. Moura - Traore
        B. Maupay - Deulofeu/Deeney

        1. COYS78
            1 month, 18 days ago

            B. Watford is playing great right now! Brighton has a nice run of fixtures.

            Spurs not playing great right now (this coming from a Spurs fan) and Wolves have some tough fixtures coming up.

          What to do here please...

          Henderson
          TAA Soyuncu Lundstram
          KDB Mane Salah Grealish
          Vardy Jimenez Greenwood

          McGovern Rico Kelly Dendoncker

          1FT 1.3ITB

          1. Save FT [so I have 2FT to make changes the following gameweek]
          2. Upgrade Greenwood (-4) [would need to change Rico / Kelly to free up funds to do Greenwood >> DCL
          3. Dendoncker Swap [use FT to upgrade Dendoncker to someone like Traore, Sarr, Mooy, etc... but would mean I’m priced out of changing Greenwood moving forward]

          Thanks all

            Dendo to Traore and bench Greenwood?

              • 4 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              Yep def an option but then I’m priced out of upgrading Greenwood and feel DCL might be a better option long term than Traore, especially as I have Jimi

              ?!

                Ye fair enough. Newcastle looks juicy in the short term with so many injuries

            Id do 3 and get a 3-5-2 in play. Greenwood not an issue and some decent 5th mids about

          Scenarios...

          a) Sacrifice one of Vardy/KDB to bring in in Salah.

          b) Keep both Vardy and KDB, whilst losing the likes of Aurier and Alli to bring in Robertson.

              Having no Salah could be very damaging, I’ll be looking to triple cap him 24

            Need an Alli replacement for 1 game only, up to 9.3m. Who to pick? Already have Madd

            Rich v BHA
            Willian v BUR
            Someone else?

              I like the Richarlison shout. How about Martial?

              Probably Martial but Sarr v Bournemouth might be good option

            2FT 0.1itb. No idea what I’ll do ahead of next game week. Balbuena or Holgate in for Kelly?

            What would you consider doing ahead of deadline?

            Henderson
            TAA Lundstram Soyuncu
            Mane Salah KDB Grealish
            Rashford Vardy Maupay

            Ramsdale Rico Kelly Elneny

            1. JT11fc
              • 1 Year

              Holgate

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years

            Son Robertson

            Or Mane Rico?

            Have TAA and Salah already. Rico is currently fodder

          7. GARY AND JAMIE
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 18 days ago

            Fab Button
            TAA Aurier Kelly Lund Webster
            Grealish Madds Salah KDB Alli
            Vardy Jimmy Connolly

            Nothing in bank. Aurier to Soy look a good FT with plans to get a 3rd Pool over next couple of weeks maybe using an Alli downgrade?

              Got a relatively similar setup... you pondering Alli to Dend and Conn to Ings?

              1. GARY AND JAMIE
                • 6 Years
                1 month, 18 days ago

                Tbh ive never got on well with a cheap 3rd striker and surely Ings has to regress at some point for me. Think I will eventually get Robbo in for Webster with the money coming from Alli, but injuries and form may change things

                  Similar thoughts here (Mane over Salah)

                  Aurier to Soy also looks a good move

            0.1m itb, 2 fts

            2. COYS78
                1 month, 18 days ago

                Pukki to DCL - Pukki isnt in great form, and is an injury risk currently. DCL playing great - and will free up some funds for future moves.

                1. Bobby Digital
                  • 2 Years
                  1 month, 18 days ago

                  Who will I bench for DCL?

                  1. COYS78
                      1 month, 18 days ago

                      Holgate or leave on bench (where you already have Pukki) - but now you have an extra 700K to invest in the future.

                    1 month, 18 days ago

                    Downgrade Pukki then you’ll have 2FT and money in the bank next GW which gives lets you wait and see

                  I have Kane and Vardy, going to hold Vardy for now but who would be your Kane replacement?

                  Auba? Ings? Rashford? Someone else?

                    1 month, 18 days ago

                    Depends on what you might do with cash and who other striker is- but I would say DCL or Ings, possibly Deeney

                    1. FOMFF
                      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                      • 4 Years
                      1 month, 18 days ago

                      I'm thinking Ings to get Salah, Mane, TAA for gw24.
                      Which Fwds have the best fixtures over next 6?

                      1. dunas_dog

                        1 month, 18 days ago

                        In that case DCL- decent fixtures too

                    Go cheap, Ings, DCL....should make it an easy route to the Salah Mane DGW double up.

                      1 month, 18 days ago

                      Yeah got to be. Hold Alli for another week or -4 to have Salah & Mane?

                      1. HamezMace
                        • 5 Years
                        1 month, 18 days ago

                        Probably hold for a week rather than minus 4, just as long as you’re set up to bring him in before GW24

                  I've a good feeling that no one in my ML will have Salah and Mane, so keen to bring in Salah for the DGW. But I've only got 2 FTs between now and then, and would need to lose Gomez to free up a spot. Any ideas?

                  If you had the team above and were looking forward to GW24, would you...?
                  A. Use the money banked to get Salah.
                  B. Upgrade Kelly/Rico to pool defender and tinker with the attack in other ways.

                    I'd go with B and use funds to upgrade elsewhere nice team

                  Anyone considering/monitoring Haller for double game week. From what I briefly seen and read Moyes set up to get crosses into the box. Planning to downgrade Rashford to Ings after next gameweek but thinking Haller a punt for a couple gameweeks.

                      His double game week fixtures are difficult so not for me

                        Difficult but not impossible I'd say they don't score but suppose how good they look between now and then attacking wise will count. Liverpool looking better defensively for sure.

                      Which moves look best.
                      A) Kane & Martial to Mane and DCL
                      B) Kane and Rico to Robbo and Jimmy
                      C) Kane, Rico and Martial to Robbo Son and DCL.
                      D) Other suggestions welcome

                      I'll be keeping Martial for this gw.

                        A probably - I'd be tempted with B if you had enough for Holgate perhaps.
