Mané in contention as managers deliver post-deadline press conferences

Jurgen Klopp confirmed on Friday that James Milner (£5.3m) and Sadio Mané (£12.2m) are in contention to return for Saturday’s clash at Carrow Road.

Such news may be of frustration to Fantasy Premier League managers who had to make a decision about the Senegalese international prior to last Saturday’s Gameweek 26.

Takumi Minamino (£6.4m), Divock Origi (£5.2m) and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (£6.2m) have all had a stint on the left flank while Mané has been sidelined he will surely return to the starting XI if fully fit, although there is the small matter of a Champions League clash against Atletico Madrid 72 hours after the encounter in East Anglia.

Minutes could well be managed as a result, although a two-week breather before the meeting with Daniel Farke’s side should ensure that there is little issue with fatigue.

Norwich centre-back Ben Godfrey (£4.4m) will return from suspension ahead of the visit of Liverpool, leaving Timm Klose (£4.3m) as the only confirmed absentee for the match against the runaway league leaders.

Godfrey is by no means a certainty to regain his place alongside Christoph Zimmermann (£4.4m), though, with Grant Hanley (£4.0m) having performed ably in his stead of late.

The fit-again Emiliano Buendia (£6.0m) will be pushing for a recall on the right flank after being overlooked in Gameweek 25, with Farke having hinted before the goalless draw with Newcastle that the Argentine winger hadn’t perhaps quite been at full fitness after his recent thigh injury.

Lukas Rupp (£4.5m) could make way, then, but the positive nature of the display at St. James Park – chance conversion again letting the Canaries down – could see changes few and far between elsewhere.

After a two-week winter break and with a six-day breather to follow after their meeting with Leicester, there is little reason for Wolves to be at anything other than full strength when the Foxes visit Molineux on Friday – injuries permitting, of course.

Ruben Vinagre (£4.2m) won’t feature at the King Power Stadium but Adama Traoré (£5.8m), who was in the wars against Manchester United, was passed fit by Nuno Espirito Santo in the Wolves manager’s pre-match presser, with the rest of the squad also available at the time of writing.

The fit-again Willy Boly (£4.7m) and Diogo Jota (£6.1m) were back in the starting XI in Manchester, with Leander Dendoncker (£4.4m) and Pedro Neto (£5.0m) making way. Boly capable of operating on either side of the defence, Dendoncker could still get a reprieve at the expense of Romain Saïss (£4.4m).

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers said on Wednesday that Wilfred Ndidi (£5.0m) “probably is going to be doubtful” to face Wolves on Friday, so Hamza Choudhury (£4.3m) could continue to deputise in central midfield given that Nampalys Mendy (£4.3m) is still sidelined.

Youri Tielemans (£6.2m) has seemingly regained his place from Dennis Praet (£5.3m) in the middle of the park and two assists against Frank Lampard’s side will do his chances of another start no harm, while the superlative form of Harvey Barnes (£6.0m) ought to see the young winger as good as nailed on the left flank. Ayoze Pérez (£6.2m) is perhaps less secure on the right wing but still caught the eye at times against Chelsea and has now started six league games in a row.

Ryan Bennett (£4.8m) is ineligible to face his parent club while Jamie Vardy (£9.8m) came through a 79-minute run-out in Gameweek 25 seemingly unscathed, so there don’t seem to be any serious lingering effects from his recent glute injury and a fortnight’s breather may have helped him regain full match-fitness.

James Ward-Prowse (£5.8m) was stretchered off with a knee injury against Spurs last week but was subsequently only deemed to have suffered a bad cut, with Ralph Hasenhüttl expressing hope that his ever-present midfielder would be fit enough to return against Burnley in Gameweek 26.

The Southampton boss talked in terms of Ward-Prowse playing back in his usual “number six” role if he does recover so Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.4m) or Yan Valery (£4.6m) may get the nod at right-back (where Ward-Prowse had been deputising) for this weekend’s game.

Hasenhüttl didn’t consider Walker-Peters for the trip to Anfield as he needed to learn about the finer details of the Saints’ system but a two-week winter break has given him ample opportunity to do just that, so the Spurs loanee could very well be handed a start in what is otherwise a settled back four.

Ashley Barnes (£6.1m) and Johann Berg Gudmundsson (£5.9m) will miss Burnley’s trip to Southampton, while Matt Lowton (£4.2m) and Charlie Taylor (£4.2m) will both be assessed before Saturday’s game, with the left-back looking more likely to recover given his manager’s comments on Thursday. Phil Bardsley (£4.3m) and Erik Pieters (£4.3m) will both be on standby to deputise should the first-choice full-backs fail to recover.

Aston Villa’s long-term absentees John McGinn (£5.4m), Jed Steer (£4.3m), Tom Heaton (£4.4m) and Wesley (£5.5m) will remain sidelined for the visit of Spurs but we are in the dark regarding the availability of Danny Drinkwater (£4.4m).

The former Leicester midfielder missed the 2-1 defeat to Bournemouth but could very well threaten the midfield pairing of Douglas Luiz (£4.4m) and Marvelous Nakamba (£4.4m) if passed fit given that Smith has shown a lot of faith in the Chelsea loanee since his arrival in the Midlands. Conor Hourihane (£5.7m) and Henri Lansbury (£4.4m) are further options in the middle of the park but look to have fallen down the pecking order in recent weeks and may only be among the substitutes at best this weekend.

Harry Kane (£10.8m), Juan Foyth (£4.8m) and Moussa Sissoko (£4.8m) are unavailable for Spurs as they travel to Aston Villa on Sunday, while Erik Lamela (£5.7m) will be assessed ahead of the game.

Giovani Lo Celso (£7.3m) and Ben Davies (£5.3m) are back in training, at least, and should be in contention to feature in the Midlands. Davies’ return perhaps puts Japhet Tanganga‘s (£4.1m) security of starts in some doubt given what Jose Mourinho had said previously about the importance of the Welshman to his system.

Tanganga could still continue as the two-in-one left-back/centre-half while Davies gets up to full speed, with Mourinho again declaring that Ryan Sessegnon (£5.4m) “is not a left-back” after his run-out in that position in the FA Cup fourth round against Southampton.

Sead Kolasinac (£5.2m), Bukayo Saka (£4.5m) and Reiss Nelson (£5.3m) were all passed fit by Arsenal on Friday, with Kolasinac potentially in line to displace Saka at left-back as he had done at the start of the calendar year.

Newcastle’s long-term absentees Jetro Willems (£4.5m), Paul Dummett (£4.4m) and Emil Krafth (£4.3m) won’t feature at the Emirates on Sunday, while Andy Carroll (£5.4m) and Jonjo Shelvey (£4.9m) aren’t yet ready for a return.

Dwight Gayle (£5.0m) and Yoshinori Muto (£5.1m) will be assessed after a return to training but will likely be among the substitutes at best as Joelinton (£5.5m), who picked up a rib injury in the win over Oxford United last week, was passed fit on Thursday.

New signings Valentino Lazaro (£5.5m), Nabil Bentaleb (£5.0m) and Danny Rose (£5.3m) also bolster Newcastle’s squad depth, with Bentelab having already made two competitive starts for the Magpies.

Rose, ineligible to face Oxford in the FA Cup, could very well be handed his first Newcastle start in London at the expense of Matt Ritchie (£5.3m), who is a possible option on the other side of the pitch given that DeAndre Yedlin (£4.4m) has failed to really impress of late.

It remains to be seen if Bruce sees Lazaro more as a wing-back or a winger, meanwhile, with the right-sided Austrian another alternative to Yedlin if it’s the former.

Tammy Abraham (£7.7m) is still feeling the effects of a recent ankle injury according to Frank Lampard, who said in his latest press conference that the player has had to be pulled out of training a few times over the Winter Break but managed a full session on Friday. As things stand, he will have to be assessed over the weekend ahead of the visit of Manchester United on Monday night.

Christian Pulisic (£6.9m) and Ruben Loftus-Cheek (£6.3m) have both been ruled out of Gameweek 26 but are both approaching a return to full fitness.

    Being Valentine's Day and all, this game week reminds me of one of those kind of girls that used to string me along when i was 16. A game here and there... I'm still messed up 😉

  7. diesel001

    I wouldn't be annoyed from a FPL perspective if games were postponed this weekend.

    But I would be annoyed from a 'being able to watch football on TV' perspective if games were postponed this weekend.

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      4 days, 11 hours ago

      Hopefully all games go on as scheduled.

      1. Bobby Digital

        This

    2. pingissimus

      • 1 Year

      Why? Lots of lovely doubles on the horizon. Potential Liverpool TGW if they go well in the cup but I wouldn’t say no to a Brighton, Norwich or Palace DGW in 34

  8. Fulchester's New Centr…

    Not very scientific, but FIFA (the game, not the Swiss bribe factory) has Utd to beat Chelsea 3 - 0.

        Yes, sadly.

  9. Basil1977

    • 3 Years
    4 days, 11 hours ago

    There must be people out there with triple Liverpool, Ings, Stephens, Pope only playing Gk and a bench made up Cantwell, Kelly, and some other non playing fodder. Sweating that both games go ahead tomorrow

    1. FPL Pillars
      • 3 Years
      4 days, 11 hours ago

      I only have McCarty as playing 😮

    2. Bobby Digital
      • 2 Years
      4 days, 11 hours ago

      The games will go on, don't worry.

      1. Basil1977
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 days, 11 hours ago

        I'm not worried only own triple Liverpool just like most people, could be good for me if both games are off

        1. Bobby Digital
          • 2 Years
          4 days, 11 hours ago

          I've got 6 players tomorrow and I'm confident the games will go on.

            hope for you, that they both go on

    3. THFC4LIFE

      I have 6 players tomorrow with a crap bench

        nice

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years

          Yep, hopefully Dennis does a U-turn

          1. Bobby Digital
            • 2 Years

            It already did...

        You'll be fine

  10. Malkmus
    • 8 Years
    4 days, 11 hours ago

    What are KDB owners thinking?

    I bought at 9.6m so have a lot of value - not that it really matters - but surely with 2 x dgw's (?) coming up it makes sense to hold?

    My main options are:
    A - KDB - Mane
    B - Cheap def to VVD

    Thoughts?

    1. FPL Pillars
      • 3 Years

      Season keeper

    2. Fulchester's New Centr…
      • 2 Years
      4 days, 11 hours ago

      I am keeping, but there is an argument for losing if you look at how many games City still have to play - all depends on Mane punt.

    3. Bobby Digital
      • 2 Years
      4 days, 11 hours ago

      I like B

      1. Malkmus
        • 8 Years
        4 days, 11 hours ago

        cheers all, food for thought.

    4. Jet5605
      • 5 Years

      A for me. Mane v West Ham is too tempting

    5. jtreble

      Do you own Salah?

  11. Would Ed Woodward
    • 1 Year
    4 days, 11 hours ago

    "Pogba is not ready, of course."

    Why? Because he just doesn't wanna play for us? Keeping him last summer was such a waste of time.

    1. AuFeld
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      He's getting paid to play.

      1. Would Ed Woodward

        Getting paid to play what?

          4 days, 11 hours ago

          Hopefully you find a buyer for that idiot this summer .....
          I'd take 100m£ & run away

          1. Would Ed Woodward
            • 1 Year
            4 days, 11 hours ago

            So annoying that apparently teams were ready to offer 120m for him last summer but we wanted 180, I guess we didn't think he'd actively lower his value.

            1. Amey
              • 1 Year
              4 days, 10 hours ago

              Lol
              Laughing stock atm

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 2 Years
              4 days, 10 hours ago

              It's very unplausible that they offered 120m. By the time he declared he wanted to leave, none of the clubs interested had budget remaining (for FFP purposes) to spend that much on transfers.

    2. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      Im not sure what the biggest joke is here... Pogba himself or Ole's pathetic charade pretending hes injured

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        4 days, 11 hours ago

        He's helpless ...
        Feel sad for OGS. Club legend. Has to take the negativity mainly caused by owners/Ed/players. He's no great manager agree, but amount of hate he gets make me feel bad tbh.

        1. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          4 days, 11 hours ago

          I dont hate him but hes out of his depth tactically and his over the top positivity is simply laughable at times. Praising crap players like Lingard and blatantly lying like saying "Pogba is injured, the boy loves to play, if he were fit he would be the first to want to get out there on the pitch"

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            4 days, 10 hours ago

            You're right.
            Hopefully poch is poached in the summer 😉

      2. Would Ed Woodward
        • 1 Year

        The whole club is a circus from top the bottom.

      'Fair' Rank??

      Maybe you're overthinking things...

      1. Would Ed Woodward

        It's from the site, not sure how it's determined.

        1. Would Ed Woodward
          • 1 Year

          I capped Vardy for 0, Mane TC and Jimenez for 2 home to Newcastle just over the last few gameweeks.

        • 1 Year
        4 days, 10 hours ago

        I think it'll mostly show the 'fair' one as being higher as a lot of it is probably determined by captain fails and it's not like we actively captain against the odds, maybe apart from that time I capped Lund at Christmas...

        1. Jarvish Scott Talent
          • 5 Years
          4 days, 10 hours ago

          Probably written by someone with a crap rank who manipulated the formula to make their own fair rank as good as possible to make themselves feel better.

    McCarthy
    TAA-Stevens-Boly
    Mane-Salah-KDB-Grealish

    1. COYS78
      4 days, 11 hours ago

      You held on to Mane that long?

      Cant sell him now when he is close to being fit...

      Great team a month ago - now Vardy form is not as strong, Mane was injured...

      You rode it out this long, dont think you can do much now.

      No changes.

      1. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
        4 days, 11 hours ago

        What you mean that long? He was gone for 2 games. Im not selling him.

        1. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
          4 days, 11 hours ago

          I mean for 1 game, since the injury was on the first game of the DGW

  17. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
    4 days, 11 hours ago

    Prediction for todays game?

    Im going with 2-1 to Wolves

    1. El Fenomeno R9
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 days, 11 hours ago

      Both teams to score 1.80

      1-1

      1. Gudjohnsen
        • 3 Years
        4 days, 11 hours ago

        2-2

    2. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      4 days, 11 hours ago

      2-1

    3. Nomar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 days, 10 hours ago

      7-5 Wolves. 😀

  18. dunas_dog

    Interesting if Liverpool were to sign Mbappe!

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 days, 11 hours ago

      Salah, Mane and Mbappe all refusing to pass to each other because they want to be the main man. lol

      1. I Member
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 days, 10 hours ago

        Have you watched Mbappe play? He assists teammates all the time.

        1. Brosstan
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          4 days, 10 hours ago

          His recent sub antics suggests he's quite selfish. It's eAsy enough to assist when you play in a joke league and win 5-0 every other game

    2. Would Ed Woodward
      • 1 Year
      4 days, 11 hours ago

      They'd do keep getting linked with him, realistically they'd have to sell Salah though.

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        4 days, 11 hours ago

        Maybe that is the plan.
        I hate it 😀

        1. COYS78
          4 days, 11 hours ago

          Salah 27 vs Mbappe 21 - I would make that switch.

          1. El Fenomeno R9
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            4 days, 10 hours ago

            Yep now is the time,Salah price will go down from here.

            1. Amey
              • 1 Year
              4 days, 10 hours ago

              That's not FPL 😀
              He's at peak of his powers. Pool won't sell him

              1. El Fenomeno R9
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 4 Years
                4 days, 10 hours ago

                FPL got nothing to do with this.

                Think they will sell and get Sancho/Mbappe

                1. Amey
                  • 1 Year
                  4 days, 10 hours ago

                  Let's see.
                  I really don't see that happening tbh

    3. Amey
      • 1 Year
      4 days, 11 hours ago

      He'll cost 250m£ ....

      1. THFC4LIFE
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        4 days, 10 hours ago

        Salah plus 100m should do it

      2. El Fenomeno R9
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        4 days, 10 hours ago

        Contract till 2022 i think,so i think it will be lower

    4. zotter
      • 10 Years
      4 days, 10 hours ago

      Think he will re-sign a contract with PSG but with a buyout clause of c£250m

  19. Nuno

    I realise the majority of games are left to be played but any need to make changes?

    Ryan
    TAA Robertson Lundstram (Rico Taylor)
    Salah KDB Fernandes Grealish (Dendoncker)
    Vardy Jimenez Ings

    0.7ITB, 1Ft

    B. Lundstram/Rico/Taylor > Boly
    C. Ryan > Absolutely anybody

    1. COYS78

      We are in a similar boat - A or C (possibly Pope?)

  20. COYS78
    4 days, 11 hours ago

    Thoughts?

    Foster/Ryan
    TAA/VVD/Egan/Soy/Jannmat
    Salah/KDB/Perez/Martial/Hayden
    DCL/Aguero/Deeney

    Planning on saving free hit for GW 31.

    A) Save the free transfer for week 28 double moves
    B) Ryan to Pope
    C) Deeney to Ings
    D) Other

    1. zotter
      • 10 Years

      C

  22. El Fenomeno R9
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    4 days, 10 hours ago

    Have player in every game hope all start and dont get Holgate 1 Rico 1 from bench,already on Stevens 1

    1. Nomar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      4 days, 10 hours ago

      Getting 1 point from any of your players is a good return this GW.

  23. dunas_dog
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    4 days, 10 hours ago

    For week 27 ( assuming no injuries) best keeper option between

    A Pope (BOU) or
    B Henderson (BHA) and double with Stevens

    1. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
      4 days, 10 hours ago

      I would go with Pope. Its always risky to double def any team

  24. circusmonkey

    • 9 Years
    4 days, 10 hours ago

    Tomorrow's winds.
    Southampton 65mph
    Norwich 55mph
    They should call them off today if we are being serious. Safety of travelling northerners.

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      4 days, 10 hours ago

      Have 6 players tomorrow.
      Nothing ahead of safety though yep.
      I hope games go ahead though

    2. Hakim Ziyech

      1. Jarvish Scott Talent

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            4 days, 8 hours ago

            Traore benched.
            I need Vardy haul.
            Fingers crossed

  26. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
    4 days, 10 hours ago

    Barner or Traore GW 28?

    I have Jimmy and Boly / Vardy and Söyuncu

    any other alternatives similiar price range?

    1. I SPEAK ENGELS AND DRINK GI…
      4 days, 10 hours ago

      Barnes

    2. Amey
      • 1 Year
      4 days, 10 hours ago

      Also consider moutinho

    3. zotter
      • 10 Years
      4 days, 10 hours ago

      Probably Barnes. Both similar level of threat

    4. Hakim Ziyech
      • 1 Year
      4 days, 10 hours ago

      Unit

  27. RAFA THE GAFFA
    • 3 Years
    4 days, 10 hours ago

    Ing Or Jimenez? And why?

    Looking at Kun+Mahrez >> ??+Mané for free.

    McCarthy
    TAA • Lunds • Aurier
    KDB • Salah • Grealish • Mahrez • Traoré
    Kun • Vardy
    (McGov. Rico. Soy. Greenwood)

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 3 Years
      4 days, 10 hours ago

      I own Traore fwiw

    2. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      4 days, 10 hours ago

      Not much in it. Would go for Ings due to Jimenez's Europa commitment.

      But if possible, I would change Grealish to Jimenez in upcoming weeks.

    3. zotter
      • 10 Years
      4 days, 10 hours ago

      Ings

  28. Nomar
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    4 days, 10 hours ago

    Anyone else getting fed up with seeing Ryan in goal for your FPL team every week? (Handcuffed with Button)

    1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
      • 6 Years
      4 days, 10 hours ago

      o/

      Probably getting rid for a hit

      1. Nomar
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        4 days, 10 hours ago

        Got 2FT.

        May use one to get Pope/Henderson. Like Hendo but he has a blank in GW28.

        1. Holmes (specialist in failu…
          • 6 Years
          4 days, 10 hours ago

          Getting Pope is no brainer in that case. (Unless Ryan does a Pope and score multiple 10 pointers) 😀

    2. Lazaretti
      • 2 Years
      4 days, 10 hours ago

      Proud owner with Dunk Button. Got rid of Pope 3weeks ago lost 20+ points. Might just get Pope back in.

    3. Hot Toddy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      4 days, 10 hours ago

      Yup. Raged him out already along with Dunk. That's a punt that didn't go well at all 😀

    4. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      4 days, 10 hours ago

      He was the main reason I played wildcard. Waste of space

    5. Firminoooo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      4 days, 9 hours ago

      I have told Ryan that this is his last chance....if not.....Button starts next.

  29. jtreble
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    4 days, 10 hours ago

    Charlie Taylor at 4.2 seems like a bargain. Besides his current injury, what's the catch?

    1. Amey
      • 1 Year
      4 days, 10 hours ago

      Nothing
      Very good option

        Hmmm, I watched him in the LEI game; he was very good. Why so cheap?

          Was injured earlier in the season when Pieters was playing.

      Why is he a bargain? He plays but L4 GW has zero xg and low xa. I’ve been thinking about getting him as he plays gw31 but struggling to see if burnley will really keep clean sheets. Erring between him and saiss (to go double wolves def)

        Burnley are as good an option as any. Only Liverpool have kept more cs and fixtures are turning.

        What's "L4 GW"?

          Last four. Sorry, confusing. Basically did a comparison versus rico (who I own and is awful) and taylor looked worse

            Got it, thanks. Agree on your point about the stats; 9 goals conceded in 11 starts vs. 27 in 21 (Rico) seems good though.

    Anyone else thinking that 34 may just be more notable for blanks than doubles. SU get to the semis and Wolves blank for instance.

    WC safe no problems but with no WC could be nasty if you FH31
