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.

      No idea, reverse fixture was 0-0 but this fixture last season was 4-3.

    City banned for two UCL seasons wtf

      Does this mean the 5th place team in the league gets their place instead?

      1. Lindelol

        I think so

      3 x City players essential next season!

      Good for FPL, less rotation

        Not for City fans 🙁

    Imagine financially doping and still being 22 points behind the leaders. Man City are a disgrace too football and I think 2 years is actually lenient. In better news, let's hope one of Sheffield/Wolves get the chance to play in the CL.

    1. SADIO SANÉ

      no need to bring Liverpool into it 😉 ban is deserved though

      1. Berbinho's Forehead
        • 9 Years
        11 days, 18 hours ago

        Every need given the BS we get over VAR, referees etc. And we've toppled a team with pretty much unlimited and illegal investment.

        1. SADIO SANÉ
          • 4 Years
          11 days, 18 hours ago

          are people being serious with the VAR thing? thought that was a joke/meme.

          I wouldn't be bitter about anything at 24 wins + 1 draw

          1. Berbinho's Forehead
            • 9 Years

            Dunno, some seem serious 😆

            1. SADIO SANÉ
              • 4 Years
              11 days, 18 hours ago

              ha I'm sure there are a few bad losers knocking about 😀 I wonder how many games you'll actually lose...? I really hope it's not an invincible season 😉

              1. Berbinho's Forehead
                • 9 Years
                11 days, 18 hours ago

                City away is probably the game we lose if there was a game we lost. We're still in the CL though, and I'd rather retain that than protecting invincibility

                1. SADIO SANÉ
                  • 4 Years
                  11 days, 18 hours ago

                  think that City game will be 49 unbeaten, to match the mighty invincibles - yeah, another team doing it would devalue it slightly anyway

    2. Niho992
      • 1 Year

      Sheffield will play in championship anyway in 2021/2022.

    3. King Sheep
      • 3 Years

      Far too lenient, they're hopeless in Europe anyway!

      World Cup in Qatar is disgrace.
      Grealish's haircat is a disgrace too.
      Footballers wages are disgrace when there is so many homeless people in our towns & citys.

      They are disgrace now that they got banned?The authorities who decide on those bans are far more corrupt than the clubs themselves. PSG has done far more than City and didn’t get any bans so far.

      It’s fine for you to think that City is a disgrace, and I don’t disagree, but the timing of this post (and some others) is what I have an issue with. The decisions taken by UEFA doesn’t prove or disprove anything.

      1. SADIO SANÉ
        • 4 Years
        11 days, 18 hours ago

        a lot of people already have this opinion, there's just no point in saying it over and over - now seems like a pretty good time to talk about it

        1. Berbinho's Forehead
          • 9 Years
          11 days, 18 hours ago

          This.

          We said it before but it's always - where's you evidence - now there is.

      2. LE CHARO
        11 days, 17 hours ago

        How have PSG done far more than City? You absolutely have no idea what you are talking about. The evidence of how City cheated and tricked UEFA is available for anyone to see. Many clubs have been "inventive" regarding FPF, but City clearly cheated like no other club, with their owner funding the sponsors from his own pocket to make it look like the money came from them. I won't even go into the story about the image rights of their players, there's plenty of documentation about that online.

        The only issue UEFA had with PSG was about one contract with the Qatar Tourism Authority, which was deemed way too high compared to the fair value in the market, and that issue was solved when they dramatically reduced its value. The club admitted its fault and since then PSG's hierarchy have worked very well and signed a lot of great and legit deals to the point that the club can now afford its lavish lifestyle without its owner's money. City went the opposite way and cheated even more. They clearly got what they deserved, they had been warned before and can't complain now or hide behind leaks.

        1. Klaren
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          11 days, 16 hours ago

          Obviously this is coming from a PSG fanboy so not gonna discuss in detail but for anyone who is objective enough and have a basic understanding of finance, a quick look at PSG’s financial statements and the increase in revenues in the last several years over their “great and legit” deals tell a lot about the club.

          And as I said above of course UEFA doesn’t have any issues with PSG for obvious reasons.

          1. LE CHARO
            11 days, 15 hours ago

            Ah, I was expecting that, the accusation of not being objective enough to avoid getting into a real debate with real arguments and supporting evidence.

            Don't pretend you have seen PSG's financial statements now, you obviously haven't. If you had, you would know that the Qatar deals represent only a small fraction of the club's revenue today. Not gonna deny PSG spent their way up there at the beginning, it is simply impossible to reach these levels with FFP now when you're a newcomer. Both PSG and City were punished back in 2014 for that and they took radically opposite directions from there. City decided to keep cheating and be non-cooperative, while PSG signed plenty of deals with non-Qatar based companies which boosted their finances (Renault, Jordan, Accor Hotels, the new Nike contract...).

            UEFA don't have issues with PSG now because they complied with their rules and negotiated with them, while City decided to wage a war they could only lose. Why do you think PSG sold over 100 million euros worth of players in each of the past 2 seasons if not to comply with FFP?

    If City don’t get a Champions League place, does that mean the team in 10th place do?

          Not me - not enough immigration.

  6. Little Red Lacazette
    • 3 Years

    So CIty can now fully concentrate on the PL for the next 2 seasons.

    1. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 9 Years
      11 days, 18 hours ago

      Pep was bought in to the win the CL. I think there's a realistic chance he ends up at Juve or Barcelona now.

  7. Stoic
    • 3 Years
    11 days, 18 hours ago

    Tripling up on City next 2 seasons for sure now

    1. Wilshere Knowledge
      • 6 Years
      11 days, 18 hours ago

      Mass exodus.

      Stephen Ireland comeback under Mark Hughes incoming.

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        11 days, 18 hours ago

        Lol

      2. Stoic
        • 3 Years
        11 days, 18 hours ago

        Imagine they get Ireland, Balotelli and Dzeko

        1. Wilshere Knowledge
          • 6 Years
          11 days, 18 hours ago

          Balotelli lays the ball off for a last minute goal to win 3-2 on the last day of the season, to seal 17th.

    2. FOO FIGHTER
      11 days, 18 hours ago

      That is if their stars want to stay on with no CL football for the next two seasons 😉

    3. Woy of the Wovers

      No way

      It’s our year (x5)

    4. Dr Mulholland

      Manchester City FC will appeal the judgement. Nothing is set in stone yet.

  8. FOO FIGHTER
    11 days, 18 hours ago

    Well well well, City been caught out. Big repocutions as they have an aging squad and as we know, the best players want to play CL football. Doubful that Pep will stay on past this season.

    They are now in a total mess as they cannot go and spend on players as they please anymore.

    1. Lindelol
      • 1 Year
      11 days, 18 hours ago

      City already have a great squad

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        11 days, 18 hours ago

        Does not mean all players will stick around without CL. Player contracts as good as toilet paper nowadays.

      'a total mess' is an exaggeration but yeah it's not a good situation

      1. FOO FIGHTER
        11 days, 18 hours ago

        No CL income means even less to spend. They cannot go balls to walls anymore as they have breached the rules.

        No CL no party.

    I imagine UCL will be even greater priority for City now so makes their players less attractive for latter parts of FPL season

    League position for MCI now almost immaterial. Expect Auguero, Mahrez, KDB etc on the bench next week ........... I wish.

    They’ll appeal to CAS and their very expensive lawyers will try to get them off

    5th place will qualify for UCL now, if Sheffield United get it that would be incredible.

    So without Champions League will City be able to attract world class players and on the otherside will they be able to hold onto their top superstars?

      they don't deserve to win it, nor are they playing well enough to compete with the top teams

      They might protest and have the stadium half empty.

      When all is said and done its sad - they are a team who have the quality to win the competition.
      Rules are rules obviously though. But football generally is failing the financial fair play test. Nobody in the world should receive that much money when others struggle do badly.

      1. Trophé Mourinho
        11 days, 18 hours ago

        its basically money laundering what they did, any other company would be dragged into a court of law. That said tho I think PSG are even worse

          Yes - fair enough. I'd like to see amazon, Google etc punished on similar lines... Actually the EU did fine them 🙂

      Exactly. Let's hope CAS upholds UEFA's decision.

      Chequebook Pep blown so much cash and still hasn't won the CL. How much has he spent on players like Bravo, Stones, Mendy and Gundogan? They have been rubbish buys.

    Aguero will be 32 before the start of next season. Surely he's one of the likeliest departures, he hasn't even come close to being a CL winner.

    KdB is almost 29 and he will ask for transfer request probably. Why would he play in team which cant play in CL ? Oooooooh Keviiiiin De Bruuuuyneeeeee what a pass for Mo Salah and he scores again !

    1. Woy of the Wovers

      After the 5th assist they’ll probably not celebrate that much. Maybe a barely imperceptible nod.
