Vardy cleared for EFL Cup semi-final action ahead of Gameweek 25

Jamie Vardy‘s (£9.9m) chances of involvement in Gameweek 25 continue to increase as Brendan Rodgers gave an update on Monday afternoon.

The Leicester City manager was delivering his pre-match press conference for Tuesday’s EFL Cup semi-final second-leg against Aston Villa and explained that Vardy has a good chance of involvement.

While Rodgers is not confident the centre-forward will start at Villa Park, he is confident of including Vardy on the bench at least. All fo that points towards heavy involvement when Chelsea come to the King Power Stadium on Sunday – particularly ominous in the wake of 375,000+ transfers out ahead of Gameweek 25.

“He’s in the squad. He’s worked very hard. We’ll give it another day and we’ll see if he can start. If you’re asking me if he’s 100 per cent, he might be 80 per cent. It’s about the further risk of injury, but I’m confident he will play some part.” – Brendan Rodgers

Rodgers also confirmed that Nampalys Mendy (£4.3m) and Wes Morgan (£4.1m) will miss the trip to Aston Villa.

Those who opted to cover West Ham’s Double Gameweek with Robert Snodgrass (£5.2m) or Arthur Masuaku (£4.2m) will indeed be sweating over David Moyes’ next press conference.

That’s because both players missed out on the Hammers’ FA Cup exit to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

However, Angelo Ogbonna (£4.5m), who was assessed for a back problem ahead of the meeting with the Baggies, was involved, featuring as a second-half substitute for Fabian Balbuena (£4.3m).

John Lundstram (£5.1m) owners may have further cause for concern after Sheffield United’s 2-0 win at Millwall on Saturday afternoon.

Having lost his place for the Gameweek 24 defeat to Manchester City, Lundstram was once again named on the bench for the FA Cup fourth round.

Furthermore, his replacement Muhamed Bešić (£4.4m) was arguably the man of the match and capped off his impressive performance with a wonderful goal, curling an effort from the edge of the box into the top corner.

Meanwhile, Frank Lampard confirmed after FA Cup action over the weekend that Tammy Abraham (£7.7m) does not have a fracture but also revealed he did not know much of the detail surrounding the forward’s injury.

“He has been getting lightly into the water and all these things. I said yesterday that there’s no fracture but other than that there is still some swelling so I don’t know. I don’t know much of the detail.” – Frank Lampard

Amid transfer speculation linking him with Aston Villa, Olivier Giroud (£6.6m) was absent from the Chelsea team that beat Hull on Saturday evening – but Lampard has confirmed the Frenchman’s absence was injury-related.

“He had a tiny, tiny feeling in his groin yesterday. It was my choice for him not to travel.” – Frank Lampard

Laporte in action for Manchester City

Aymeric Laporte (£6.3m) was not involved as Manchester City thrashed Fulham 4-0 at the Etihad Stadium but Pep Guardiola was quick to allay any features of further injury, insisting that the player is just being eased back into regular action.

“He had some fatigue, which is normal after 4 or 5 months. We are not going to take risks. Until we feel he is ready, he won’t play. If he can play against United, he can play.” – Pep Guardiola

However, Riyad Mahrez (£8.5m) and Joao Cancelo (£5.2m) will be assessed after their involvement against Fulham.

“Riyad recovered well from his kick and Joao had a big kick with some injury on his ankle. We will see how they recover in the next days.” – Pep Guardiola

Todd Cantwell (£5.0m) was one of three Norwich players to miss their win at Burnley through injury.

With Ben Godfrey (£4.4m) suspended, the attacking midfielder was joined in the physio room by Emi Buendía (£6.0m) and Ibraham Amadou (£4.5m).

“(Cantwell) got some hamstring problems after Tottenham. Nothing too serious but this turnaround is too quick.” – Daniel Farke

Fantasy managers in possession of Cantwell will certainly need to pay close attention to Daniel Farke’s next press conference considering the number of injuries to key FPL midfielders right now.

Sean Dyche also did not risk any of his players recently affected by injuries, Johann Berg Gudmundsson (£5.9m), Ben Gibson (£3.9m) and Phil Bardsley (£4.3m) all absent from Burnley’s defeat to Norwich.

Jan Bednarek (£4.4m) returned to full fitness for Southampton’s 1-1 draw with Spurs while Jannik Vestergaard (£4.6m) missed out with a concussion.

Danny Ings (£7.0m) played the full 90 minutes but Shane Long (£4.6m) and Cédric Soares (£4.8m) were both out with knee injuries of varying severity.

Also, Stuart Armstrong (£5.2m) joined the injury list for the Saints on Saturday, forced off with a muscle problem in the 44th minute. Moussa Djenepo (£5.2m) was his replacement, and the most likely to claim Armstrong’s place if he is not fit in time for Gameweek 25.

“(Armstrong) had a problem with the hips. I hope it’s not that bad but he’ll have a scan tomorrow and then we’ll know more.” – Ralph Hasenhüttl

Newcastle’s 0-0 draw with Oxford saw new loan signing Nabil Bentaleb (£5.0m) make his debut although Valentino Lazaro, who joined from Inter Milan, was not registered in time to play.

Bentaleb looked a little rusty in his first outing although displayed some glimpses of the skill he has been brought to Newcastle for.

Meanwhile, Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.4m) was back in the Magpies’ side after missing Gameweek 24 and was one of Steve Bruce’s better performers.

Joelinton (£5.5m) and DeAndre Yedlin (£4.4m) overcame their respective flags and both played 90 minutes at St. James’ Park.

Nigel Pearson revealed last week that Danny Welbeck (£5.8m) could play a part for Watford in Gameweek 25 while Tom Cleverley (£4.8m) and Will Hughes (£5.3m) are also making progress.

It will be interesting to see what impact these players have on the first-team at Vicarage Road as they continue their upturn in form under Pearson.

However, those still invested in Ismaïla Sarr (£6.2m) may have another transfer on their hands as there was a less than positive update on the winger.

“I don’t think he will be ready for next week, but we’ll see.” – Nigel Pearson

We will bring you the latest implications of the FA Cup fourth round results, replays and fifth-round draw on Tuesday.

    Would you keep Lundstram on WC or sell him for 4.5 and sign Stevens/Baldock instead?

    1. Dr. Agabuse
      • 7 Years
      27 days, 5 hours ago

      Sell

    2. BigBillyBass
      • 1 Year
      27 days, 5 hours ago

      Definitely sell

    3. GuenDoozy
      27 days, 5 hours ago

      Keep if you bought at 4.0

  2. Dr. Agabuse
    • 7 Years
    27 days, 5 hours ago

    Grealish 100% for rising
    Mane so close to drop.

    I wanna switch them but before Villa game would be mad.

  3. BigBillyBass
    • 1 Year
    27 days, 5 hours ago

    On WC. Who would you rather?

    A) McCarthy, Henderson, Robbo, Baldock, Traore, Ings

    B) McCarthy, Button, VVD, C Taylor, Hayden, Aubameyang

    1. Sterling Malory
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      27 days, 5 hours ago

      A

    2. Hy liverpool
      • 6 Years
      27 days, 5 hours ago

      A

    3. Catastrophe
      • 9 Years
      27 days, 5 hours ago

      A but depends on the squad I.e. how often you would be playing Taylor, Hayden etc.

  4. Warby84
    • 4 Years
    27 days, 5 hours ago

    Aguero Aubameyang JIMENEZ (This currently)
    OR
    Aguero Aubameyang INGS

    1. jimmy.floyd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      27 days, 5 hours ago

      A

    2. Dthinger
      • 2 Years
      27 days, 5 hours ago

      A for sure, if you can afford it without destroying the rest of your team

    3. Catastrophe
      • 9 Years
      27 days, 5 hours ago

      So jimi or Ings you mean? Always Jimi but he is more expensive so not a fair comparison.

    4. Bushwhacker
      27 days, 1 hour ago

      I have B ; Jiminez added means way too much tied up in attack.

  5. jimmy.floyd
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    27 days, 5 hours ago

    Baldock or Stevens?

    1. Hy liverpool
      • 6 Years
      27 days, 5 hours ago

      I prefer stevens myself.

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 6 Years
        27 days, 5 hours ago

        Why?

        1. Hy liverpool
          • 6 Years
          27 days, 5 hours ago

          Eye test, i have watched shieffeld this season in different occasions and he was really unlucky not to get attacking returns... Stats say the same. Baldock also looks good and has more attacking returns so can't go wrong anyway.

        2. Sterling Malory
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          27 days, 5 hours ago

          He's better.

          They play down the left channel more often, mostly because that's where Fleck/O'connell are.

    2. Catastrophe
      • 9 Years
      27 days, 5 hours ago

      Stevens

    3. Warby84
      • 4 Years
      27 days, 5 hours ago

      I’ve gone OConnell for price reasons, but would go Stevens if I could

  6. dunas_dog

    Should Man United spend the additional £20 m it would appear to take to get Fernandes?

    1. Dthinger
      • 2 Years
      27 days, 5 hours ago

      nah

    2. Hy liverpool
      • 6 Years
      27 days, 5 hours ago

      If Maguire costs 80 million then surely fernandez deserves the extra 20 million.. But in general noway any club would spend that much on fernandez.

    3. Catastrophe
      • 9 Years
      27 days, 5 hours ago

      Yes. Worth taking the risk, nothing would be worse than not strengthening the team this window. Have to accept there are better teams to play for for a number of reasons and that we will end up paying over the odds. Think he would be a good signing. Should have broken the bank for Haaland. Urgh!

      1. PlumaPiedra
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        27 days, 4 hours ago

        Broken the bank? He only cost £20m

        1. Catastrophe
          • 9 Years
          26 days, 20 hours ago

          A lot more actually and that's how much it cost Dortmund* Uniteds price has always been inflated due to our position, no CL, high wage structure etc.

      2. Dthinger
        • 2 Years
        27 days, 4 hours ago

        I disagree. I don't think he'll make an instant impact. They need someone with PL experience who can step in and be ready to play on day 1. I'd be looking at someone like Barkley who has a point to prove, or Grealish who needs a bigger club.

        Barring that, they need to blood the youth. I hear Gomes is pretty good.

        1. Catastrophe
          • 9 Years
          26 days, 20 hours ago

          We will see 🙂 certainly wouldn't want to be anywhere near Barkley 🙂 Gomes has potential sure and is one for the future.

    4. Drop the Dendoncker
      • 6 Years
      27 days, 4 hours ago

      Bring back Sanchez?

    5. melvinmbabazi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      27 days, 2 hours ago

      Yes

    6. Bushwhacker
      27 days, 1 hour ago

      Better to buy off Ole and get a real manager with a plan. Randomly buying hit or miss midfielders in January is a mugs game.

  7. Shels1895
    • 4 Years
    27 days, 5 hours ago

    Mane not pictured in the Liverpool training photos?

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 6 Years
      27 days, 5 hours ago

      Have I missed something? Mane is injured

    2. Hy liverpool
      • 6 Years
      27 days, 5 hours ago

      I wouldn't even expect mane to train before southampton game let alone westham game..

  8. Sterling Malory
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    27 days, 5 hours ago

    1.Aguero or Auba

      2. Dynamic Duos
        • 6 Years
        27 days, 5 hours ago

        If this is on a wc then he wants 2 Liverpool defenders and Salah

        1. Hy liverpool
          • 6 Years
          27 days, 5 hours ago

          I would wany an attacker over a defender for Norwich southampton westham games myself

    3. Warby84
      • 4 Years
      27 days, 5 hours ago

      I have gone both for the next 2, then will downgrade 1 for Ings...

    4. Kun Tozser
      • 4 Years
      27 days, 5 hours ago

      Kun Jimi Ings for me

      If you do fancy a Auba best keep an eye on transfers or wait until deadline given his comments!

    5. J ⚒ Gimme your Mané…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      27 days, 5 hours ago

      Aguero, B, C

    Armstrong’s posting some good stats, dirt cheap and in form.

    Is he nailed? And does anyone know anything about his yellow flag?

    1. ALI_G
      • 2 Years
      27 days, 5 hours ago

      aah

      bad memories of buying him last year and him doing sweet fa

      I think better options - Redmond, Traore, Perez

      1. J ⚒ Gimme your Mané…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        27 days, 4 hours ago

        Fair, but the past is the past.

        As we speak he’s outscoring all 3 of those over the last 3 games. Stats right up there too.

    2. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years

      Wasn't he injured and subbed off vs Spurs?

    How does this team look?
    Already used my FT and keeping the WC.

    Ryan

    chose one from each please...

    a) Fleck (better fixtures)
    b) Perez (more explosive / higher ceiling)

    1) Kun
    2) Auba

    Cheers...

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Auba Fleck

    2. The Neville Wears Prada
      • 3 Years
      27 days, 4 hours ago

      If Vardy is fit, Perez becomes irrelevant.

      Aubs cause he loves playing Burnley and has better fixtures, and cheaper

    Looks like may lose .2 m value on Mané and Kelly tonight- not sure whether just to transfer out for Traoré and Van Dijk now?

    A Yes
    B Wait - TAA might pick up injury and Klopp could spring a surprise with Mané being fit for Southampton game

      I'm in the same boat, it's a tough decision. If for free I'd maybe just do it depending on the rest of your team -

      I'm already on a -4 as well so considering a WC

      what would you do with this?
      (-4)
      Henderson/Button
      Robbo/Lund/Rico/Kelly/Soy
      Salah/Mane/KDB/Grealish/Cantwell

        What's the most you'll lose on mane if hes fit soon and you buy him back? .1 considering he will prob drop twice (inc tonight) by the weekend?

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        Not worth WC - would rather - 8 if Mané looks like going to miss a couple of games and get Troaoré

  15. Dr. Agabuse
    • 7 Years
    27 days, 4 hours ago

    Who will get me more points just this week

    VVD (SOT) + DCL (wat)
    Soy(CHE)/Lund + Aubameyang (bur)

    1. Rhinos

    The Mané/Grealish swing tonight is really going to bother me.

    1. Don Kloppeone
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      27 days, 4 hours ago

      Yep. But I think I have to hold tight with far less than perfect info and having already missed a rise on Traoré, it doesn’t seem worth the rush.

      Conflicting advice here guys 😉

      1. Wolves Ay We
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        27 days, 4 hours ago

        Grealish v Bournemouth, Mane out. Do you want to play your midfield fodder?

        1. Dr. Agabuse
          • 7 Years
          27 days, 4 hours ago

          No but he wants to wait and see whats the news and mid week potentiak injuries

        2. I Member
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          27 days, 4 hours ago

          He can do the transfer later in the week with more information.

          Maybe he wants to play four at the back and bench Mane for 2-3 weeks? Or lose money? Or is afraid of Graelish getting illness. Or he has better idea than Graelish in his pocket. I have no idea why those price changes are bothering him, he hasn't actually told what is the problem 😉

        4. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          27 days, 3 hours ago

          My fodder front 8 consists of:

          Salah, Mané, KDB, Martial, Traore
          Ings, Deeney, DCL

          Not to say Grealish isn't better than at least one or two of those options -this- GW, but I'd still have to bench someone! 😛

          1. Bushwhacker
            26 days, 21 hours ago

            Well Mane is one

    4. Dr. Agabuse
      • 7 Years
      27 days, 4 hours ago

      It might not happen
      But even if it does.
      Better to let go
      Grealer will start and its too dangerous also other issues could happen

    5. I Member
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      27 days, 4 hours ago

      I'm doing the same move. Definitely wait.

      1. baps sniffer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        27 days, 3 hours ago

        Why? What is the risk with Graelish?

        1. Dr. Agabuse
          • 7 Years
          27 days, 3 hours ago

          Hes playing tomorrow +
          We dont know nothing about Mane yet

        2. I Member
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          27 days, 3 hours ago

          Could get injured playing tomorrow and I would like confirmation of Mane being out before I sell him.

    Play Soy (CHE) over Rico (AVL)? Grealish to play in mid ...

    1. Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      27 days, 4 hours ago

      Same dilemma. Currently on playing Rico, If Grealsh blanks may get a Rico Clean Sheet.

      1. Magic Zico
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        27 days, 4 hours ago

        Grealish won't blank mate 😉

  18. Rhinos
    • 6 Years
    27 days, 4 hours ago

    Fabianski
    Doherty TAA Digne Lundstram
    Saint-Maximin Salah Mahrez
    Kun Aubameyang(c) Deulofeu

    Screw the template

    1. The Neville Wears Prada
      • 3 Years
      27 days, 3 hours ago

      Deulofeu could be punt of the month

  19. akhilrajau

    Best goal keeper combination now onwards?

    1. dunas_dog
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      27 days, 4 hours ago

      Dubravka McCarthy good

    2. K_UN_DE_BRU_YNE
      • 2 Years
      27 days, 3 hours ago

      Hendo dubravka Pope Foster all good cheapies
      You need to relax & pick one

  20. 007 [RoboKlopp]
    • 3 Years
    27 days, 4 hours ago

    Mane, Tammy -> Traore, Kun

    For free, yes or no?
    Thanks.

    1. Rhinos
      • 6 Years
      27 days, 4 hours ago

      all day long if mane out

    2. The Neville Wears Prada
      • 3 Years
      27 days, 4 hours ago

      I don't think they would risk losing Mane by playing him with even a slight injury. Looks like a solid move

    3. K_UN_DE_BRU_YNE
      • 2 Years
      27 days, 3 hours ago

      Yay

  21. Tinkermania
    27 days, 4 hours ago

    Is Mane definitely dropping this morning?

    1. Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      27 days, 4 hours ago

      Yep

      1. Tinkermania
        27 days, 4 hours ago

        Thanks. Is he going to miss wk25 and wk26?

    2. Dr. Agabuse
      • 7 Years
      27 days, 4 hours ago

      What?
      Why so sure?

      1. Tinkermania
        27 days, 4 hours ago

        He is injured. Have I missed news on his come back?

        1. baps sniffer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          27 days, 3 hours ago

          Nope, three weeks they say in Senegal. Of course there is winter holiday so not certain how many gw:s. No reason not to trust that source imo, but nothing is 100%

    3. Dr. Agabuse
      • 7 Years
      27 days, 4 hours ago

      What does fpl flix say?

      1. Tinkermania
        27 days, 4 hours ago

        Don't even know what that is. Sorry.

        1. Dr. Agabuse
          • 7 Years
          27 days, 3 hours ago

          A site that predicts prise rises like fplstats but slightly different predictions.
          Since its close on fplstats i was interested was flix thinks

  22. 007 [RoboKlopp]
    • 3 Years
    27 days, 4 hours ago

    Anyone keeping Mane?

    1. nerd_is_the_werd
      27 days, 4 hours ago

      Not likely, how much did you buy him for?

      1. 007 [RoboKlopp]
        • 3 Years
        27 days, 3 hours ago

        11.6 but I really need points as there lots of value players.

    2. nerd_is_the_werd
      27 days, 3 hours ago

      Same, having no luck atm, so looking to punt.

  23. Kay317
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    27 days, 4 hours ago

    Mane to Traore to fund Connolly to:
    A) Auba
    B) Bobby
    C) Kun

    I have Vardy and Ings. Can't decide so any advice welcome.

    1. The Neville Wears Prada
      • 3 Years
      27 days, 3 hours ago

      Would rather go double def and Salah, so that's Bobby out. Auba vs Aguero is the real question. I think I would give the edge to Aubs

      1. Kay317
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        27 days, 3 hours ago

        Thinking the same. Really tempted to wild card now to just get it done.

        1. The Neville Wears Prada
          • 3 Years
          27 days, 3 hours ago

          Did you already use a transfer? It would just be -4 if it's just those 2 transfers

          1. Kay317
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            27 days, 3 hours ago

            I've just done it for a -4. I want to get Robertson in aswell for Liverpool triple up but would need to wild card for that. Think I'll make that decision after the west ham game. Not sure if it's more useful to keep my wild card until later. I am chasing massively.

            1. The Neville Wears Prada
              • 3 Years
              27 days, 3 hours ago

              I would hold the WC for now. There's still loads of time to catch up.

  24. K_UN_DE_BRU_YNE
    • 2 Years
    27 days, 3 hours ago

    Is pope worth to include on a wildcard considering GW 31 blank?
    So it's between
    Pope McCarthy
    Or,
    Henderson McCarthy

  25. BigBillyBass
    • 1 Year
    27 days, 3 hours ago

    Who’s better option on WC? Baldock or Stevens? Both are 5.1 if it helps

    1. Kay317
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      27 days, 3 hours ago

      The one with more attacking returns I guess

  26. Kay317
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    27 days, 3 hours ago

    I'd have hendo over pope

    1. Dr. Agabuse
      • 7 Years
      27 days, 3 hours ago

      Yea

  27. Dr. Agabuse
    • 7 Years
    27 days, 3 hours ago

    Dream defense Doherty VVD TAA soon

    1. Pep Roulette
      • 2 Years
      27 days, 3 hours ago

      Robbo worth the extra money than VVD! And I don't think investing so much in defence would be ideal!

      1. Dr. Agabuse
        • 7 Years
        27 days, 3 hours ago

        Can have
        Salah KDB Grealish Adama Cantwell

        Jimmy Ings Auba alongside

        + Taylor Stephens
        Henderson too

  28. Regin
    • 2 Years
    27 days, 3 hours ago

    what is the logic of having 3rd & 4th round replays but no replays from 5th round onwards? Why not extra time & penalties from Round 3?

  29. Regin
    • 2 Years
    27 days, 3 hours ago

    so only fixtures confimed for gw31.

    wolves vs bournemouth
    burnley vs watford

    assuming norwich get beaten by s'hampton or spurs,

    norwich vs everton

    if Klopp plays kids in replay

    LIV vs crystal palace

    i hope Klopp plays kids, otherwise we barely have 3 unattractive fixtures & maybe forced to play Free hit

    1. The Neville Wears Prada
      • 3 Years
      27 days, 3 hours ago

      Isn't it already confirmed Klopp will play the kids, and won't even manage the replay?

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        27 days, 3 hours ago

        Yup, confirmed that no senior players will feature

  30. Regin
    • 2 Years
    27 days, 3 hours ago

    so Mane confirmed out for games against both Southampton & Norwich?
