FPL Gameweek 26 team news and injury updates

Gameweek 26 has the potential to deliver a nasty surprise or two on the team news front, with the Premier League fixtures spread out over ten days.

We’ve only heard from eight Premier League managers ahead of Saturday’s deadline, with the other 12 top-flight head coaches not facing the media until well into next week.

For the press conference round-up below, we’ll summarise what we’ve heard on this weekend’s matches before running through what we know about the other six games.

THIS WEEKEND’S MATCHES

Manchester City v West Ham

Pep Guardiola confirmed that Raheem Sterling would miss the visit of West Ham United on Sunday due to the hamstring injury he sustained in the defeat to Spurs last weekend.

Speaking on Friday, Guardiola said:

It’s a hamstring injury, like you know. We’ll see. It takes weeks, we’ll see if before Leicester, Madrid and the rest of the games – I don’t know right now.

The City boss also said that Benjamin Mendy and John Stones don’t have any injury problems after their recent omissions and are both in training, as is Leroy Sane (knee) – although Guardiola revealed the German winger would not be ready for a playing return just yet:

He started to train with us. When you have an injury especially like this one, for six months, it’s not training for one week and immediately you are there. You need to recover rhythm, tempo, confidence. He needs weeks.

David Moyes reported one or two unspecific niggles in his pre-match press conference on Friday but Felipe Anderson (back) and Andriy Yarmolenko (thigh) have stepped up their recoveries, with the Brazilian indeed back in full training over the past few days.

Sheffield United v Bournemouth

Chris Wilder revealed that David McGoldrick (foot) has been out on the grass this week, while everybody else in the Sheffield United squad came through the Crystal Palace game unscathed.

Fantasy managers hoping for some kind of clue as to the first-team prospects of a certain ‘out of position’ FPL defender were left disappointed, with John Lundstram not mentioned in the broadcast section of Wilder’s press conference. Anything embargoed won’t be released until Saturday evening, either.

The quote below from last weekend at least offers a modicum of hope, although a lot of doubt still remains about Lundstram’s chance of a start against the Cherries:

Eddie Howe reported on Friday that Jack Stacey (hamstring) and Josh King (hamstring) were “close” to a return, so the pair could be in contention for a place in the matchday squad come Sunday:

Josh King and Jack Stacey have trained this week so they’re both getting close. We’ll have to make decisions on whether we’ll involve them or not, but pleased with their progress.

Jefferson Lerma is suspended.

Crystal Palace v Everton

Fabian Delph (suspended) will join Andre Gomes (ankle) and Jean-Philippe Gbamin (thigh) in missing Saturday’s game, with Carlo Ancelotti confirming that two of Gylfi Sigurdsson, Morgan Schneiderlin and Tom Davies will play in the centre of midfield.

Gomes will feature in a friendly during the winter break in a bid to get him fit for Gameweek 27.

Martin Kelly (calf) has joined Mamadou Sakho (hamstring), Jeffrey Schlupp (muscle) and Cenk Tosun (hamstring/ineligible) on the sidelines ahead of Palace’s trip to Everton but the injury situation is otherwise unchanged for Roy Hodgson’s side going into Saturday’s game.

Brighton v Watford

Nigel Pearson reported that Tom Cleverley (Achilles) is “in contention” for Gameweek 26 but Ismaïla Sarr (hamstring) and Kiko Femenía (hamstring) face further assessment.

Daryl Janmaat (knee) will be back on the grass next week.

Pearson said on Thursday:

Kiko [Femenia] is making really good progress, so if he doesn’t make this week then hopefully, after the short break, he will be available, which is again good news for us. Tom Cleverley is training with us continually now, so he’s in contention. We’ll assess Sarr a bit more tomorrow [Friday] and make decisions on that. Janmaat is going to be back out on the grass with us next week, which is again very positive for us.

On Sarr, Pearson added:

I think it’s always a danger to put players at risk with soft tissue injuries. With sprinters, and he is certainly a sprinter, there is more danger.

Jose Izquierdo (knee) is Brighton’s only confirmed absentee ahead of the visit of Watford, with Shane Duffy (shin) back in training after a brief period on the sidelines and longer-term injury victim Dan Burn (shoulder) making good progress.

On Glenn Murray, who ousted Neal Maupay from the starting XI last weekend, Graham Potter said:

He played well in the [West Ham] game, contributed even before his goal. It’s good to have someone of his experience, of his quality. He’s relatively fresh in terms of game-time, which is a bonus for us.

NEXT WEEKEND’S MATCHES

Wolves v Leicester

Adama Traore (calf) is among the cluster of players currently flagged who we won’t get an update on ahead of the Gameweek 26 deadline although the FPL midfielder has travelled with the rest of the Wolves squad for some warm-weather training in Marbella and Nuno Espirito Santo said the winger will “hopefully be OK”.

Wilfred Ndidi (knee) pulled out of the Leicester squad in Gameweek 25 but Brendan Rodgers didn’t think the influential midfielder’s injury was serious when interviewed last week:

Norwich v Liverpool

Sadio Mane (muscle) could well return for the Norwich City match a week on Saturday, with Klopp having previously said that the Senegalese winger “should be fine” and that the winter break is “perfect for him to get back on track”.

Those quotes, of course, are now well over a week old.

Mane has been rehabilitating at Melwood this week, with James Milner (muscle) also expected to be close to featuring at Carrow Road.

Timm Klose (knee) is the only confirmed absentee we know of at present for the Canaries.

Chelsea v Manchester United

Frank Lampard provided an update on Christian Pulisic (tendon) earlier this week, which could boost his chances of featuring in Gameweek 26:

Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Achilles) played 60 minutes of a friendly, meanwhile, on his long road to recovery.

Marcus Rashford (back) won’t be back for that match but Scott McTominay (knee) and Paul Pogba (ankle) are further along in their recoveries and have stayed behind during the winter break to work on their fitness.

Aston Villa v Spurs

The injuries that caused Giovani Lo Celso (thigh) and Erik Lamela (groin) to miss Spurs’ FA Cup fourth round replay are thought to be minor, while Ben Davies is back in training and may put Japhet Tanganga‘s security of starts in some doubt given what Jose Mourinho had said previously about the importance of the Welshman to his system.

Danny Drinkwater missed Villa’s defeat to Bournemouth with a calf problem, while Ezri Konsa was taken off with a muscle issue in that match.

Southampton v Burnley

Moussa Djenepo (illness) missed out on Southampton’s FA Cup defeat to Spurs in midweek, while James Ward-Prowse was stretchered off with a knee injury in the first half of that match.

Ward-Prowse was subsequently only deemed to have suffered a bad cut, with Ralph Hasenhuttl expressing hope that his ever-present midfielder would be fit enough to return against Burnley in Gameweek 26.

It remains to be seen if Ashley Barnes (hernia) and Johann Berg Gudmundsson (hamstring) recover for that clash, with the pair having spent much of 2020 on the sidelines.

Arsenal v Newcastle

Steve Bruce had previously hinted that Dwight Gayle (hamstring), Yoshinori Muto (hip) and Andy Carroll (hip) could all be fit for Gameweek 26, although Joelinton (rib) is a fresh doubt after picking up a knock against Oxford last week.

Sead Kolasinac (thigh), Cedric Soares (knee) and Reiss Nelson (hamstring) had previously all been pencilled in for a comeback after the winter break, so could feature for the Gunners.


More detailed information and predicted line-ups can be found in the Team News tab, which will be refreshed this evening.

    Guys , I can’t decide between bringing in the flashy Aguero or Son, or making a boring defensive move. What would you guys do? 1 ft, over 4 mitb.

    A Vardy > Kun
    B Trossard to Son
    C Lundstram to Bertrand

    If I do C, I would get to bench Soy against wolves. The other two are changing starting players.

    Not much mention for Bowen?Never heard of him until he signed for WHU. Amazing stats though. Cheap differential but obviously Championship could bring him down to earth vs Premier League.

    Will keep an eye though.

      I've heard good things about him - very keen in seeing both Bowen and Samatta play this gameweek.

      Nearly got him but then looked at WH fixtures ...

        Spreadsheet needs an update an I've not heard from Doos in ages tbh.

        Hope he's ok...

    Will Lundstram start?

    1. Uncle Gamst
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      If your asking then it's not certain

    2. PascalCygan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Don’t think so. I’m benching him for Soy. But there is a very small voice at the back of my head still hoping Lund starts! I am tempted... even if I’ll get rid soon.

      1. Feanor
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Soyuncu sucks, so I think Lundstram could match him for points even if he only gets 10 minutes.

        I have both.

        1. PascalCygan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Yeah, as I said, I am still tempted to start Lund. I’m keeping Soy for the 28 onwards fixtures. He wouldn’t be there if I was wildcarding. I guess he’s got as good a chance of scoring from a set-piece as Lundstram does as a sub?

    3. Bun Rab L4D3
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      No one knows but now has a lot of competition, Without him being nailed he's too much of a risk.

  6. AlCapwnUK

    2 months, 2 days ago

    Would anyone do either for -4
    - Lund to Stephens (sou) - would start ahead of lascelles.

    - grealish to Redmond

    Not sure either are worth it for -4

    1. Bun Rab L4D3

      Not for me personally.

      Nah, not for hit.

  7. Uncle Gamst

    2 months, 2 days ago

    a) Vardy > Aguero
    b) hold

    I brought in the Ox as a placeholder for Mane but still 0.1 short unless Mane falls. Bringing in Aguero would mean Mane is unobtainable in near future. Aguero has lei, blank, mun next 3. They then play Real Madrid away before Villa away when he could be rested.

    If I hold then I could do Ox > Mane and either Kelly > Tanganga or Ryan > Henderson GW27 then Holgate to Egan.

    Really tempted to play my WC. thought about it the whole week and have som good drafts. Do you think it is time ? Current team below

    Pope

    TAA - Robertson - Lundstram

    Salah - KDB - Son - Martial - El Ghazi

    Vardy - DCL

    Button - Soyboy - Greenwood - Targett

    1. PascalCygan

      I’ve got a similar team but holding for now. I think I can navigate the next few weeks with FTs (and maybe hits) and hopefully make hay with a WC post 31 somewhere.

    2. Uncle Gamst
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Just make few changes over next few and keep your WC to help with upcoming double and blank GWs

      I burned my WC early this autumn for the first time, and boy did I regret it. Think about how sweet it will be to have it further on down the road. This gameweek is also super long, things can happen

    2. Bushwhacker
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Tanganga at risk with Davies getting fit. Williams left out for Shaw. Lundy and Mahrez bench or rotation risks. Eeks.

      1. Teahupo'o
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Yeah, a lot of risk involved. Only way to fit those big hitters.

        1. Belli2007
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Be mindful that you will have 5 players out in gw28 too and so if those risks don't play then you will have a thin line up......unless you plan to play a chip such as FH

  11. Clinton19

    Keep Maddy or transfer to berjwin for free?

    1. n-doggg
      • 7 Years

      Keep for now.

      1. Clinton19
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 2 days ago

        I also have Lunds, Kelly and Rico any idea if I should replace anyone of them for someone in their price bracket?

        1. Uncle Gamst
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          Kelly needs to go first, maybe for Egan then perhaps Lunds for Tanagana if he's looking nailed.

        2. n-doggg
          • 7 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          I’d hold Rico.

        Will be for a hit though. Fancy the double up, just think that Everton might keep a CS against Crystal Palace at home, so don't find it's worth the risk. However, Everton keeps letting us down, so...

      DCL out not a bigger chance of improving point returns

      I mean your cash in the bank is killing me!

  14. KingOfLuck

    To much itb, 4.7, for just sitting on my FT.

    Any suggestions?

    Ryan/pope
    TAA/Robertsson/Rico/Lundstram/Kelly
    Salah/KDB/Perez/Cantwell/Dendocker
    DCL/Vardy/Jimenez

    My thoughts are around getting Lundstram out or moving to a premium forward, Augero or Auba? But it gets even harder to navigate given uncertainty around DGW and blanks coming up... ahhhhh, help!

    1. thomashl
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I'd probably deal with Lunds, as Rico isn't that playable this week and Kelly is out. You need that starting defender. I'd upgrade Dendoncker next, both Cantwell and Dendo is a bit weak

      1. Teahupo'o
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Why isn't Rico playable? Has been starting, on set pieces, and Sheff Utd aren't exactly scoring for fun.

        1. thomashl
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          He's not UNplayable, but if I could choose between him and a SHU def I'd go for the latter personally. I think they'll score against Bournemouth

          1. Teahupo'o
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            I agree that I'd rather have a Sheff Utd defender but Rico still has a decent shot at points. Not facing Pool or City.

      2. KingOfLuck
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        What is the premium choice behind Liverpool defenders? Nothing that really turns me on :/

    2. Wonderful Wizard Hazard
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Too bad you don't have enough for Cantwell -> Son. Cantwell -> Mahrez? Cantwell -> Barnes? Rico/Kelly -> Stephens?

      Sorry too many options. Depending on when you WC, I think getting in a MCI attacker (Kun/Mahrez) for the next 2 GW is worth it.

      1. KingOfLuck
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Agree! Goodbye Cantwell, welcome Mahrez! Thanks for the feedback.

    More managers have transferred out Mane than Sterling. Seems a bit odd.

    1. Lecky Legs FC
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I'm looking to bring in on WC Mane will be back against NOR

      1. FPL Pillars
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        far from a fact that

        1. Lecky Legs FC
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 2 days ago

          He'll play 60 mins maximum we have Atletico few days later on that Tuesday Klopp will want to work on his match fitness.

          1. RamaJama
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 2 days ago

            Could be, or could be you’re very wrong

    2. FPL Pillars
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      higher active ownership

    3. Jimmers
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Sterling's ownership is probably lower, no? And Sterling probably on lots of dead teams.

    1. Lav

      Need to upgrade midfield. Drop Pope, get Tanganga, and swap Fleck.

      1. _Ninja_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Fleck would be benched every week apart from the blanks

      2. Bushwhacker
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Tanganga won’t start when Davies is fit.

    Which move? Have enough itb for either of these

    1. Grealish or Cantwell >> Mahrez
    2. Vardy >> Kun or Auba
    3. Other

    1. Coys96

      1

    2. Kun Tozser

      Easy 2

    3. Wonderful Wizard Hazard
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Keep Grealish. If you do Cantwell -> Mahrez then you have to figure out benching every week. Vardy -> Kun is ok, but I think you might want Vardy back in GW28. Maybe time to dump Soy/Kelly.

  21. Coys96
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Worth going Grealish to Trossard free?

    1FT, want 2FTs in GW28 and next GW no transfers are needed. Grealish's fixtures are really hard too

    Trossard would start this GW and 28 (WAT, CRY). He does well in home games...

    1. Printing Mane
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I’d keep grealish this week

    2. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      TROSSARD? nO!!!!

        1. Kun Tozser

          And Grealish?

    Is Bertrand worth 0.4 over Stephens?

    On some set pieces and probably more so if JWP out

    1. Coys96
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      No

    Captain Kdb or Salah?

    1. Gentle_Turks

      Salah out of those two..

      Please help below, thanks.

    2. FPL Pillars
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Better call Salah

    3. Uncle Gamst
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Salah

  25. Gentle_Turks
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Who would you sell for Aguero?
    A. DCL
    B. Vardy
    (value tied up in Vardy & will want back for GW28)

    1. n-doggg
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Dcl for sure

      1. Gentle_Turks
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Yeah thats where I'm leaning but he has better fixtures than Vardy for next two weeks and I will sell Aguero for Jimenez before GW28.

    2. FPL Pillars
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      a

    3. Coys96
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Neither

      1. Gentle_Turks
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Don't fancy Aguero (probably captained) this week?

    4. bros
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      I would keep Vardy, so DCL for me!

    5. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      A by far

    6. Kun Tozser
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Both

      1. Gentle_Turks
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 2 days ago

        Presume you mean either?

  26. swobe
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 2 days ago

    Are Aguero owners confident he will start? If so, how?

    1. Niho992
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 2 days ago

      not really

    2. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Sterling out.. aguero the most prolific attacking player

    3. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Yes, pretty confident. Just much hype from the sheeps on here as usual. Put your fingers in your ears 🙂

    4. Teahupo'o
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Armband is on him atm.

    5. Bushwhacker
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Yes. No honest. Really!

    6. Wonderful Wizard Hazard
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Hope he does, with my luck probably not! Don't care either way, he is in my line-up and my captain oh captain.

    7. bros
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Nope, but if he does start could well be a haul!

    8. Tinkermania
      2 months, 2 days ago

      With a break coming up, I expect Aguero to start. I won't get him though. With Sterling out, it makes it even more likely. Can't imagine City without both mentioned players. Could be 0-0!

  27. FPL Pillars

      yup. GTG

  28. Niho992

    Bergwijn or Moura...

    1. Kun Tozser

      One weeks data not enough imo

    2. Bushwhacker

      Neither?

  29. benbro
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    2 months, 2 days ago

    What the Scoutcast annoyingly forgot...

    Was that you could get Aguero in with the Mane money (and Mahrez too if you have the ft’s or want to take a hit)

    And!!! Then WC after the split week when all those uncertainties about Traore? Mane? Etc are clarified.

    For me that’s the way to go

    1. Teahupo'o
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      That's what I did as soon as Mane got injured. Mane to Traore and Vardy to Aguero.

    2. Wonderful Wizard Hazard
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Was thinking about WC this week, but decided that since I would only be changing one premium it's worth to wait. Going to WC in GW28 to transfer Kun out and do some cleanup.

    3. benbro
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 1 day ago

      I’m now on

      KDB, Mahrez, Aguero
      Salah, Trent
      Ings
      DCL
      Grealish
      Rico, Soy, Pope

      Balance is way off but WC next week

  30. manu4life99

    Start Lund or Soy?

    1. Bushwhacker
      2 months, 2 days ago

      Soy will start.
