FPL Gameweek 23 team news and injury updates

A busy Friday saw 13 Premier League managers deliver their pre-Gameweek 23 press conferences, following on from the seven we heard on Wednesday and Thursday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was one of the baker’s dozen to hold their media gathering today and, perhaps predictably, he failed to bring us clear-cut news on Marcus Rashford, who was substituted with a knock against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Wednesday.

Solskjaer said:

I can’t tell you now. As I said with Harry [Maguire] a few weeks ago, of course we’re going to give him the absolute amount of time to find out. We’re going to do some more checks and treatment with him today.

Yesterday of course was just a recovery day anyway and some treatment for him. I have not seen him this morning but I’m not going to hold my breath. I would probably think that he wouldn’t be ready but let’s see. There are still 48 hours, more than that, so let’s see.

There were no further injury updates from Solskjaer in the broadcast section of his presser but Manchester United later confirmed that Marcos Rojo (muscle), Scott McTominay (knee) and Paul Pogba (ankle) remain out, while Axel Tuanzebe (unknown) is “on the road to recovery”.

Luke Shaw (hamstring) is also a doubt.

Jurgen Klopp is welcoming a few bodies back just in time for Double Gameweek 24, meanwhile.

Speaking on Friday, the Liverpool boss said:

Looks like Joel [Matip] and Fabinho, they trained completely normal yesterday and the day before. That means they are likely to be in the squad [v Manchester United].

The other three [Dejan Lovren, James Milner, Naby Keita] not but they are getting closer and closer. Dejan I think will train 100% from Monday on, the other two I don’t know exactly.

There was a big blow for owners of Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson ahead of Saturday’s match against West Ham United, with Carlo Ancelotti ruling both players out of the weekend’s game:

We are without for this game Richarlison. He had a little problem yesterday in training and will not be available for the game. I hope he will be available on Tuesday. Little problem on his knee, he had a little twist but nothing special. Minor problem but unfortunately will not be available tomorrow.

We are without Sigurdsson, he has minor groin issues.

Alex Iwobi (hamstring) may be back in full training early next week while Yerry Mina was passed fit after a minor injury concern in midweek.

Mina looks likely to be back in the starting XI in east London, with Ancelotti making ominous comments about Mason Holgate when talking of the Colombian’s benching in the win over Brighton:

It was just a rotation that I did just to keep Michael Keane involved. It was not a technical decision – Mina is going to play the next game and I am maybe going to rest Holgate.

David Moyes said of West Ham United’s injury latest:

We’ve got an injury to Felipe Anderson, which might mean that he might make it, he might not. He got a bad fall with ten minutes to go against Sheffield United, so we’re assessing that at the moment. It’s his ribs as he fell heavily from the tackle.

Arthur [Masuaku] has got a little bit of fluid in his knee which we’ve drained and we’re seeing how that is as well.

With Lukasz Fabianski (hip) out for “a few weeks”, new signing Darren Randolph may be thrown straight into the starting XI against the Toffees.

Moyes said of the ex-Middlesbrough goalkeeper:

He’s as fit as we can get him. Ideally we’d have waited a week longer but Lukasz’s injury has meant that we brought that forward. We’re happy to take the risk with it. He’s trained fine today.

I’ve got the choice between three goalkeepers at the moment and he’s certainly in that, yes.

Michail Antonio (hamstring) has trained but Moyes said he “couldn’t be sure” if the midfielder will recover in time for this weekend.

It was fairly quiet on the team news front at the Etihad, with Pep Guardiola saying on Friday:

Leroy [Sane] is still not training with us but everything is going really, really well. [Aymeric] Laporte he make another week with us training.

Everyone else is more or less fit, yeah.

Roy Hodgson had potentially bad news for Martin Kelly owners when rounding up Crystal Palace’s injury situation ahead of the meeting with Guardiola’s troops:

Obviously we were hoping to recover Max Meyer but that’s not been possible, so we’re one further player down. Joel Ward, who’s been missing for a long period of time, he returns.

Scott Dann returned, of course, before the last game. There are still a lot of players from the intended first team down and the bench once again will be made up largely of players from the under-23 squad.

On loanee Cenk Tosun, Hodgson said:

He’s physically fit to start but I still think he probably needs more time with us and he needs more time as close to a starting position as he is with us, which he’s not necessarily been in that situation with Everton.

Yan Valery (virus) is Southampton’s only confirmed absentee but Ralph Hasenhuttl offered up some interesting comments on Danny Ings ahead of Southampton’s busy week, saying:

He looks really in good shape and can work 90 minutes or longer. I think we rested him one time against Chelsea away, the rest of the games he played and it didn’t seem that he was struggling with all the games we played over Christmas.

It doesn’t mean that he should play in the future every game. We have now again a tough schedule in the next week, Crystal Palace on Tuesday, we’ll have a look. Especially our two strikers, they have to do a lot of running against the ball.

It’s not, hopefully, a coincidence that we have so few injuries. We are really trying to balance the sessions and trying the balance the workload for every player. It’s not always possible, we have a few guys that have to play always.

Wolves have lost Ruben Vinagre to a hamstring injury ahead of the trip to St. Mary’s but Nuno Espirito confirmed on Friday that Adama Traore was “OK”.

In their medical bulletin earlier today, Tottenham Hotspur reported that Ben Davies (ankle) and Tanguy Ndombele (hip) are continuing with the late stages of rehab, while Harry Kane (hamstring) and Moussa Sissoko (knee) remain out.

Hugo Lloris (elbow) has returned to training with the first-team squad, meanwhile, but Jose Mourinho later said in his press conference that the France international was aiming for a playing comeback in early February.

Will Hughes (hip), Danny Welbeck (hamstring) and Tom Cleverley (heel) are all making progress in their rehabilitation from injury but look set to remain sidelined ahead of Watford’s clash with Spurs, with Nigel Pearson saying on Thursday that he “doesn’t foresee” Kiko Femenia (hamstring) being involved despite a partial return to training.

Sebastien Prodl (knee) and Daryl Janmaat (knee) are a little further behind that quartet in their recoveries, meanwhile, and will also miss out.

Pearson said that new signing Ignacio Pussetto would “probably” be involved against the Lilywhites.

Asked whether Christian Pulisic (tendon) is still on course to be back in a “couple of weeks”, Frank Lampard said:

We’d like to think so, which kind of goes towards the break for us at the start of February. Hopefully, he’ll be back at the other end of that break.

DeAndre Yedlin (knee), Dwight Gayle (hamstring), Paul Dummett (hamstring), Javier Manquillo (hamstring), Yoshinori Muto (hip) and Ki Sung-yueng (knock) will all miss the visit of Chelsea but Fabian Schar (hamstring) was passed fit by his manager on Friday and Allan Saint-Maximin (hamstring) may also come into contention after a six-week lay-off.

Andy Carroll (unknown) faces a late fitness check.

Brendan Rodgers brought positive news on Wilfred Ndidi (knee), saying of his injured influential midfielder:

Wilfred Ndidi has made great progress, he’s out on training pitch working, which is great news for us, but he won’t be available for the weekend. We’ll see after that.

Wes Morgan (groin) will be assessed after a return to training, meanwhile.

Sean Dyche confirmed that Ashley Barnes underwent his hernia repair procedure on Friday but no timescale has been put on his return just yet.

Jay Rodriguez has recovered from illness, Robbie Brady is training following a calf injury and Chris Wood is available after having his broken nose re-set, meanwhile.

Johann Berg Gudmundsson is “unlikely” to feature because of a hamstring injury.

Daniel Farke said on Friday that Teemu Pukki (hamstring) is “ready to go”, while Grant Hanley (muscle), Josip Drmic (hamstring) and Ben Godfrey (ACL) have all returned from injury.

Eddie Howe confirmed that Bournemouth will still be without Arnaut Danjuma (foot), Chris Mepham (knee), Charlie Daniels (knee), David Brooks (ankle), Jack Stacey (hamstring) and Josh King (hamstring).

Aaron Ramsdale has returned to “light training” after a minor hamstring problem, while Lloyd Kelly (thigh) has also trained this week.

Dan Burn (shoulder) and Jose Izquierdo (knee) are Brighton’s only two confirmed absentees for the visit of Aston Villa, with Graham Potter saying on Thursday that Shane Duffy, Adam Webster and Alireza Jahanbakhsh should all feature after recovering from the “bumps and bruises” that forced them to miss training earlier in the week.

Aaron Mooy is also set to be available after sitting out the defeat to Everton with a knock.

Matt Targett (hamstring) was pictured in training for the Villans, whose boss Dean Smith said of Pepe Reina‘s chances of starting:

Yeah, possibly. He’s settled in fine straight away. We’re very fortunate to get someone so vastly experienced.

Chris Wilder reported a clean bill of health in his press conference and said that Sheffield United have a full squad to choose from ahead of the trip to Arsenal.

The Gunners will be without the suspended Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, with Mikel Arteta saying of Sead Kolasinac (thigh):

The doctors are assessing him still. He had a normal session yesterday. He has been in some discomfort, we know this season that he had some little niggles, so we have to assess him and see if we can get him fit for Sat or he will be out.

On Lucas Torreira (hip), Arteta added:

Very similar situation [to Kolasinac]. He trained yesterday as well, still not 100 per cent confident so we will have to wait and see again. It is something related to his hip, that was producing some pain in the muscle. I don’t know. He is a tough boy, he wants to train, he wants to play and hopefully he will be available for the weekend

Arteta also revealed that Hector Bellerin (hamstring) “needs a little chunk of training sessions before he is ready to compete”.

        Many thanks! I would love a wild card right about now but it's a draft tournament I'm playing with this squad.
        In your opinion would you keep Fornals or swap for Trossard whilst he's available? I am thinking about the double next week

    A) Traore -> Sarr (keep Rashford)
    B) Rashford -> DCL (Kelly & Traore -> Son & Williams next week)
    C) Save FT. A or B next week dependent on this weekend
    D) Something else

    Small risk of not fielding 11 if I save FT (likely playing Kelly away to City). May be priced out of Rashford, Kelly & Traore -> DCL, Son & Williams if I don't do Rashford -> DCL today. Keen to get Son in...

      Change Kelly, Rico and Holgate in defense. Gametime/points issue.

      Not a fan of Perez plus having to play Cantwell every week. Drop Kun and spread the cash.

      Planning for TC next week?

    I did Alli > D. Silva as a one week punt last week but not sure if I can get him out now that Ramsdale and Rashford are both flagged.

      LIV vs MANU will be interesting for you, especially since its the last game 😀

      1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        9 months, 11 days ago

        I’ve had TAA, Robbo since GW1 so the long overdue run of cleansheets has been nice....

        But since making the transition to the holy trinity, the SHU & tot games were more nerve wracking than walking across a 100ft high tightrope blindfolded...

        Not for the faint hearted!

        1. Holmes
          • 7 Years
          9 months, 11 days ago

          I have tried triple defense twice with Southampton before and it was really tough to watch the score. Atleast you have triple up which can actually keep CSs 😆

    I have 2 FT. With the OGS conference was planning on doing Rashford to DCL then Maddison and Alli to Grealish and Mane next week... but maybe it might be worth it to just do all 3 transfers now?

    1. Nomar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 11 days ago

      I have Rashford and Richarlison. Don't really want to lose either of them if I'm honest.

      May have to, though.

      1. Reeker
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        9 months, 11 days ago

        Shame to get rid of Rashford but its necessary. Him or De Bruyne

  18. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 11 days ago

    WC or take a -12?

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 11 days ago

      Moves below:

      Alli, Rico, Kelly, Soyuncu
      To
      Son, Lascelles, Hanley, Williams

      1. Nomar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        9 months, 11 days ago

        Trying to see how this
        Is an improvement

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 3 Years
          9 months, 11 days ago

          Really want rid of Alli and really want Son without sacrificing Salah, Mane etc.

          And seeing as how Rico and Kelly have lost/about to lose their places I may as well get rid too?

      2. SAY MY NAME
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 11 days ago

        bad moves imo, don't do it, play alli and soy, rico/kelly to stephens

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 3 Years
          9 months, 11 days ago

          OK thanks, and just accept I can't get Son at current?

          1. SAY MY NAME
            • 3 Years
            9 months, 11 days ago

            yep, if spurs look better in the long run then maybe look at him, but not worth any hits, and you won't want to rely on hanley, lascelles, and williams even if they are mainly bench players

            Alli might score this week anyway 😉

    3. Hakim Ziyech

      Take a minus 12 please 🙂

    4. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 11 days ago

      Nah, especially for those players, none of them are worth a hit.

      1. Nomar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        9 months, 11 days ago

        And if that's what you want to use your WC on, then don't do that either.

        1. KAPTAIN KANE
          • 3 Years
          9 months, 11 days ago

          Trouble is imminent price changes will stop me getting the team I want 🙁

          1. Nomar
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            9 months, 11 days ago

            Use WC but not on that set of players. Son is good but Spurs look horrible at the moment.

            1. KAPTAIN KANE
              • 3 Years
              9 months, 11 days ago

              OK, I think it sounds worse because thankfully the rest of my team is all the key players you'd expect

              1. KAPTAIN KANE
                • 3 Years
                9 months, 11 days ago

                Rest of team outside of the moves

      2. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 11 days ago

        Would leave me with:

        McCarthy
        TAA | Lundstram | Hanley
        Salah | Mane | KdB | Son | Cantwell
        Vardy | Ings

        Martin | Lascelles | Williams | Greenwood

    6. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      No and no

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 11 days ago

        Seems unanimous, thanks

    7. Marty McFly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 11 days ago

      Based on the moves you’re suggesting, neither.

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 11 days ago

        Thanks.

        What if I worded it:

        A) Alli & Soyuncu
        B) Son & Lascelles

        1. Marty McFly
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          9 months, 11 days ago

          If you’re desperate to get Son in, consider downgrading a defender to Jack Stephens at 4.3. Nothing for a hit though.

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 3 Years
            9 months, 11 days ago

            Thanks, Lascelles at 4.2 should go straight back into the Newcastle team, got goal threat too - plus have McCarthy so Stephens would be double Soton def

    8. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 11 days ago

      Wildcard to triple pool defence

      Come over to the dark side with me 🙂

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 11 days ago

        I have contemplated TAA & Robbo, but I just can't be arsed with getting annoyed which of Salah or Mane.
        So think I'll stick with both, especially with upcoming DGW

    9. St Pauli Walnuts
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 11 days ago

      Reset your FPL password. Write down the new password. Eat the piece of paper. All is well with the world again.

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 11 days ago

        Haha! I know it sounds bad but the resultant team looks great I think

        1. St Pauli Walnuts
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          9 months, 11 days ago

          It’s not a bad team but look beyond that, you’ll never get those points back mate. Don’t do it! If you do, WC. But not worth a WC IMO.

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 3 Years
            9 months, 11 days ago

            Yeah defo won't do it for a hit thinking about it, gonna decide late tonight just how much I want Son

  19. Boss Hogg
    • 11 Years
    9 months, 11 days ago

    Chilwell to Mendy for free?
    Or save the transfer?

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      9 months, 11 days ago

      Save

    2. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 11 days ago

      Keep Chilwell

  20. shearer9
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 11 days ago

    Joe Gomez nailed on, at least for DGW24?

    1. Arthur Shelby
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 11 days ago

      Not nailed on, but probably a likely starter

      1. Hakim Ziyech
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 11 days ago

        This

  21. Arthur Shelby
    • 8 Years
    9 months, 11 days ago

    Battle of the budget strikers: for those looking to cut funds up front, who’s the better option between Maupay and Calvert-Lewin?

    - Almost identical records this season, though DCL has had less minutes

    - Both have a favourable 4 next games, with Brighton arguably up against weaker defences

    - Playing in teams with similar goal records / creative potential

    Personally my gut tells me Maupay but I’d be interested to hear other opinions. Very hard to split them.

    1. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
      • 1 Year
      9 months, 11 days ago

      Hard decision but I would go Maupay

    2. Marty McFly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 11 days ago

      Same dilemma for me. I’m going Maupay.

    3. Make Arrows Green Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 11 days ago

      Both up against dodgy keepers next too. I've been on DCL for a couple of days but wondering if the absence of Richarlison and Siggy will hurt creativity.

      1. Arthur Shelby
        • 8 Years
        9 months, 11 days ago

        Can’t see Siggy being a huge loss creatively, he’s been sitting deep in a two and not created many chances all season. Richarlison on the other hand... he’s a handful, I can definitely see that.

        1. Make Arrows Green Again
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          9 months, 11 days ago

          Fair enough. Tough choice. My alternative is keeping Jimenez but his fixtures are a bit rubbish and his form (personally and team) is not great.

          1. Arthur Shelby
            • 8 Years
            9 months, 11 days ago

            Yeah I’m sacrificing him for DGW Salah, was just a question of this week or next. Think I’m set on Maupay in to face Villa.

    4. Arthur Shelby
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 11 days ago

      Cheers guys.

  22. Powers106
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    To facilitate bringing in Aguero (Jimenez out), I also need to find 1.7 million, so drop for bench fodder:

    a) Chilwell or
    b) Grealish
    c) keep Jimenez you fool

    Schmeichel (Button)
    TAA - VVD - Lundstram - Chilwell - Kelly
    Mane - KDB - Cantwell - Traore - Grealish
    Vardy - Ings - Jimenez

    Thanks! Powers

    1. Arthur Shelby
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 11 days ago

      Chilwell.

  23. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
    • 1 Year
    9 months, 11 days ago

    A) Richa -> Sterling (c) (-4) -> GW 24 Salah (c)
    B) Richa -> Salah (-4)

    1. Jubilanus / BSC Small Boys …
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      U bringing Sterling in?!

      1. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 11 days ago

        Thats what im debating for one game week... He will start 100% right?

  24. Jubilanus / BSC Small Boys …
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    9 months, 11 days ago

    Right, I have Sterling funking up my team.

    What would u do? I had him captain last week. Go for it again?

    1. Marty McFly
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 11 days ago

      Yes

    2. tucaoneo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      9 months, 11 days ago

      I would C him again in that position.

    3. THE WERNER DELUSION
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 11 days ago

      I probably would

    4. Nomar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 11 days ago

      I'm not sure his current contribution can in any way, shape or form be classed as funky.

    5. Jubilanus / BSC Small Boys …
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 11 days ago

      Surely he starts this week right?

    6. Arteta
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 11 days ago

      Yeah, I'm doing it!

  25. Marty McFly
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 8 Years
    9 months, 11 days ago

    A) Lucas Moura
    B) Grealish

    Heart says Lucas, head says Grealish...

    1. Arthur Shelby
      • 8 Years
      9 months, 11 days ago

      Lucas is a tempter for sure but the up side isn’t as big as we like to think. Kouyate has more points!

      Go with Grealish imo.

  26. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 11 days ago

    So tempted by Mahrez but could end up in a lot of tears! So little good options at 8.5, what you all thinking?

    1. THE WERNER DELUSION
      • 5 Years
      9 months, 11 days ago

      think I'd risk him, or find a way to get Son OR just go cheap and switch up another player

    2. Nomar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      9 months, 11 days ago

      High reward but have a good
      bench option.

    3. SAY MY NAME
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 11 days ago

      thinking of the same move, will probably do it, i've got good bench in case

  27. *Reformed-Character*
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    It will only take 0.1m to get the Lord back, I will have TAA, Mane and Robertson for DGW.
