FPL Gameweek 38+ team news and injury updates

We had a bumper crop of press conferences to wade through on Friday as preparations continue for the final Gameweek of 2019/20.

All but two of the 20 Premier League managers faced the media today, with Mikel Arteta and Graham Potter having held virtual gatherings on Thursday.

We’ll run through the headline injury news and stand-out manager quotes for each fixture, with a more detailed discussion to follow in our Team News tab.

Manchester City v Norwich City

Any concern that Fantasy managers might have had about seeing Raheem Sterling in Saint-Tropez in midweek were assuaged by Pep Guardiola on Friday, with the City boss confirming that he had given his squad Wednesday and Thursday off.

Talking of that decision and the motivation for Sunday’s dead rubber against Norwich City, Guardiola said:

I gave [the players] two days [off] because we had a tough period after lockdown with games every three days. If you play against an opponent playing for something maybe I would not have given two days.

We need to see how the players are ready for Madrid. I know them quite well but this game against Norwich and the way they are going to train this week, we are going to pay attention to how prepared they are for Madrid.

Every game there has to be a target, a focus, a desire to win the game, and maybe, scoring 100 goals is one of the reasons why.

Guardiola wasn’t asked about any injuries but opposite number Daniel Farke had plenty to report, confirming that Emiliano Buendia (suspended), Josip Drmic (suspended), Alex Tettey (knee) and Timm Klose (hamstring) will miss the trip to the Etihad.

Long-term absentees Moritz Leitner (hernia), Grant Hanley (hamstring) and Sam Byram (hamstring) remain sidelined.

Leicester City v Manchester United

Brendan Rodgers will again be without Ben Chilwell (foot), Christian Fuchs (groin), Caglar Soyuncu (suspended) and James Maddison (hip) this weekend but Marc Albrighton (knock) is expected to recover in time.

Rodgers said of Albrighton on Friday:

He will have a final fitness test tomorrow, but he should be okay.

The Foxes don’t have any fresh fitness concerns.

In an interview with MUTV, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said of Luke Shaw (ankle) and Eric Bailly (head):

We’re going to give them as much time as possible. I’m not going to rule anything out.

Newcastle United v Liverpool

There was nothing in the way of team news from the broadcast section of Jurgen Klopp’s presser, with the Liverpool manager’s media gathering dominated by talk of the title win, Jordan Henderson‘s player of the year award and a beef with Frank Lampard.

There was plenty to report in the north-east, however, with Isaac Hayden (hamstring) and Sean Longstaff (hamstring) potentially in line for a return but the Magpies still missing five of their six centre-halves.

Emil Krafth (knock) is also a doubt and Steve Bruce said:

We might have Isaac [Hayden] and Sean Longstaff. We’ve got a problem with Emil [Krafth], he took a nasty whack to his ankle, we’ll see how he is in the next 24 hours. If they come through, then Isaac and Sean might be available.

[Fabian Schär] has an operation this afternoon so we’re hoping 6-8 weeks and we’re hoping when the season is about to start that he’ll be there or thereabouts. That goes for Lascelles and all of the ones who are injured, Dummett, Clark.

Chelsea v Wolverhampton Wanderers

N’Golo Kante (hamstring) may return for Chelsea’s clash with Wolves on Sunday, with Frank Lampard saying:

There’s a possibility that he’ll feature. He’s trained for the first time towards a match pace this morning, so that’s a decision I’ll have to make – talking with him and the medical team – to see if he’s ready to start.

Not for the first time this season, Nuno Espirito Santo didn’t report any injury concerns in his pre-match press conference and said that Raul Jimenez was “ready to go” following the birth of his daughter earlier this week.

Burnley v Brighton and Hove Albion

Charlie Taylor (hamstring), Jack Cork (ankle), Ben Mee (thigh), Matthew Lowton (foot) and Ashley Barnes (hernia) remain unavailable for Burnley this weekend, with Sean Dyche confirming that he wouldn’t blood any youngsters in their clash with Brighton:

No, I doubt it. With all due respect, some of the young players here are good players but I still don’t think many of them are quite ready to start. They might get a glimmer from the bench.

Jose Izquierdo (knee) and Steven Alzate (groin) are the only definite absentees we know about for Albion, with Alireza Jahanbakhsh (hamstring) and Bernardo (eye infection) thought to be fit.

Arsenal v Watford

Arsenal confirmed in a medical bulletin on Friday that Shkodran Mustafi (hamstring) will miss the remaining league and cup matches of this season.

Bernd Leno (knee) is aiming to be back in full training next week, so Emiliano Martinez looks set to continue between the posts.

Calum Chambers (knee), Pablo Mari (ankle) and Gabriel Martinelli (knee) remain out.

Watford will make a late check on Etienne Capoue (knock), with interim boss Hayden Mullins saying:

No more fresh injury worries. Étienne [Capoue] is going to train tomorrow. Étienne’s been having treatment so we’re going to have a look and see if he’s available tomorrow for us to train and have a look at him.

Southampton v Sheffield United

Chris Wilder said that Sheffield United have got “a few issues” heading into Gameweek 38+, with the Blades boss citing fatigue and knocks.

Jan Bednarek (muscle) should be back for the Saints, meanwhile, with Ralph Hasenhuttl saying:

He is back in training, and fit and available for the weekend. Injury wise, we have Sofiane (Boufal) and Moussa (Djenepo) still out, but the rest are fit.

Crystal Palace v Tottenham Hotspur

Jose Mourinho confirmed that Tanguy Ndombele (unspecified) is his only injury-related absentee on Sunday with Dele Alli (hamstring) now fit.

Eric Dier also returns from a four-match ban.

Mamadou Sakho (muscle) has joined Gary Cahill (hamstring), James Tomkins (thigh), Patrick van Aanholt (shoulder) and Christian Benteke (suspended) on the sidelines for the visit of Spurs but Luka Milivojevic (knee) could make a swift reappearance, with Roy Hodgson saying on Friday:

The only one who may have a chance is Luka. He missed training yesterday and trained today. We’ll wait and see if there’s any reaction to the knee when we get together tomorrow.

Everton v Bournemouth

Carlo Ancelotti confirmed on Friday that Yerry Mina (thigh), Jean-Philippe Gbamin (knee), Fabian Delph (muscle) and Mason Holgate (shin) will miss the visit of Bournemouth, so teenager Jarrad Branthwaite looks poised to continue alongside Michael Keane at centre-half.

Moise Kean was passed fit by the Toffees so he could be line for a start based on Ancelotti’s comments last Monday.

Eddie Howe revealed that Bournemouth will have to “wait and see” on whether Nathan Ake (groin) will be able to feature at Goodison Park but Adam Smith (concussion) should return.

On Ake, Howe said:

He’s got a very minor groin problem, so we’ll wait and see whether he’s available, that’s still undecided.

Whether he’s fit enough to play from the injury side and also from the fact that he hasn’t trained or really done anything between the injury and now, we’ll make a very late call on him.

West Ham United v Aston Villa

Neil Taylor (hamstring) could be back in contention after making a return to training but Ahmed Elmohamady (hamstring) will miss Aston Villa’s all-important match with West Ham United, which will force Dean Smith into at least one change for the trip to east London.

David Moyes didn’t provide any update on Jarrod Bowen (knock) or Aaron Cresswell (knock) in the broadcast section of his presser but the former was spotted in training ground photos and his manager had previously said that he “didn’t think” there was anything to be concerned about.


More detailed information and predicted line-ups can be found in the Team News tab, which will be refreshed before the Gameweek 38+ deadline at 15:00 BST on Sunday.

    Who to start: Jimmy or Bruno?

    1. BrazilianGooner
      • 7 Years

      Bruno.

    2. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years

      Don't think you 2 got the memo, everyone is selling Bruno and Jiminez, Jiminez went down tonight, Bruno tomorrow

      1. Daniel - Go Granville
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        well I have only 2 FT, can't sell everyone

    3. Klaren
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      I'd start Jimmy as Chelsea defence has been really poor recently and they are especially weak against headed attempts which plays to Jimenez's strength. Also assuming Spurs beat Palace, Wolves will need a win to finish top 4 so likely to play more attacking than usual in the 2nd half.

      1. Daniel - Go Granville
        • 11 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Thanks Klaren, that's my logic too, however I am Chelsea fan so it is difficult

    Ideas on this lot?

    Pope (McCarthy)
    Alexander-Arnold, Doherty, Alonso, Taylor (Egan)
    Sterling, David Silva, Fernandes, Martial (Foden)
    FWD: Ings, Rashford, Jiménez

    1 FT, 0.5 in bank.

    Probably looking at a hit to change an attacker.
    Which defender to join Egan on the bench?

    Cheers

        • Has Moderation Rights

        1. Francescoli
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Redmond or Grealish would be decent shouts

    Who will score more points in GW38... Salah or Aubameyang?

    1. osceola31909
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Salah

      1. tokara
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Lol

      2. Wee Jinky
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Some Arsenal fans think Auby will be rested?

    2. Francescoli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Salah

  11. tokara
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 27 days ago

    Which games will be high scoring?

    My guess... City, Chelsea and Soton

    1. Johnny Leghorn
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      City, Chelsea and Leicester

    2. BrazilianGooner
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Maybe LEI/MUN give us goals for both sides. Possibly Arsenal or Everton for misfits on the other side.

    3. wan
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      CHE vs Wov surely high scoring game since wov can’t play for draw. Pulisic anyone on FH?

      1. Werner Brothers
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Wolves has nothing to play for btw

        1. wan
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Wov need to win for Europa..if wov draw & spurs win, they not qualify

      2. tokara
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        I am getting pull, mainly as block move but seeing his impact against pool, i am scared

    4. Werner Brothers
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Yes + spurs & pool match

  12. Wee Jinky
    • 8 Years
    2 months, 27 days ago

    Free hit team. Current rank 549.

    Martínez
    Pieters, Tarkowski, Bardsley, (Williams / Thomas)
    Salah, De Bruyne, Sterling (Capt), Mahrez, Martial
    Kane, Ings (Connolly)

    Still debating in my head if Auby will score more than Salah. On paper Arsenal v Watford looks easy but Watford clinging to premier league survival and could be tough. Hmmm?

    With this team, if Burnley get a clean sheet, possible top 100?

    1. Francescoli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      I like it! Burnley triple up is a ballsy move

    2. BERGKOP
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Like it. Only query is triple burnley.

    3. Firminoooo

      Very good team. Enjoy your place, I finished 549 OR last year.

        Missing a player from A - that's why B is better 🙂

        1. BERGKOP
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          Ha

    2. Wee Jinky
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      B

    3. Francescoli

      Sorry in A I have a second Burnley defender in Bardsley

    4. BERGKOP
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Both will score well. Probably B for me. Need Utd imo and I think Ings will match, if not exceed, Auba's output.

    5. Wee Jinky
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Your team B is very similar to my team. Differences are Tarkowski instead of TAA and Mahrez instead of D. Silva - You must have at least 1 million more than me, that team is expensive! If I were you I would change Team B, Mahrez for Dsilva, Pope for Martinez and Tierney for TAA

      1. Francescoli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Team B also has Mahrez! 🙂 I’m not crash hot on Martinez but he does present value and the fixture is good.

      No money left?
      I'll change martinez to McCarthy. Safer to get CS

      1. Francescoli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        That’s a great shout

  14. tokara
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 27 days ago

    Robertson or TAA better?

    1. BERGKOP
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      TAA

    2. ZTF
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      TAA, but I’d wait for team news because you might get a definitive answer

  15. Geezer

    Is there any chance Sterling can`t play on sunday? Doesn`t he have to be in quarantine after his vacation in St Tropez?

    1. Francescoli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      No quarantine when people return to the Uk from France. He will play.

    2. Bring back Rafa
      • 1 Year
      2 months, 27 days ago

      I don't believe there is quarantine for travelling from France to England as Aurier attended his brothers funeral in Paris and didn't miss any of Spurs games

  16. Ruinenlust
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 27 days ago

    Which is the best?

    A) Martial and Jesus

    or

    B) KDB and Ings

    or

    C) Antonio and Aubameyang

    1. Geezer
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      B. Easy

    2. Francescoli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      B

    3. BERGKOP
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      B

  17. Francescoli

    Sorry guys. Screwed it up last time. Here it is again: On Free Hit, do you prefer A or B?

    (A) 442
    Martinez
    Robertson* VVD* Pieters Bardsley
    Salah Sterling Mahrez Dilva
    Auba* Kane

    (B) 352
    Martinez
    TAA* Pieters Bardsley
    Salah Sterling Mahrez Dilva Martial*
    Ings* Kane

      B

      1. Francescoli
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Thank you. It’ll leave me with a bench of Stephens, Nketiah and Williams.

    2. Geezer
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      B. I think Ings will outscore Auba

    3. BERGKOP
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      B. See my comments above.

    4. Wee Jinky
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Your team B is very similar to my team. Differences are Tarkowski instead of TAA and De Bruyne instead of D. Silva - If I were you I would change Team B, bring in De Bruyne for Dsilva by downgrading TAA to Stephens, or even Williams?

    5. Max City
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      I like Auba, but then it will depend on ARS or SOU?

  18. fish&chips
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 27 days ago

    TAA, VVD & Doc backline with no cover due to injuries. Am I at any risk of a no show? Don't really want to waste my free transfer on a sub defender.

    1. BERGKOP
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Doc will play most if not all of the match. VVD plays imo. TAA might not start but will still get minutes. Just my guess.

      1. fish&chips
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Thanks, tricky one, could make some nice moves with TAA cash but if he starts he's a must IMO. hopefully get some early team news.

        1. BERGKOP
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 27 days ago

          It is. I'd hold

      2. tokara
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Do u think Robertson will start?

  19. yalala
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 27 days ago

    Martinez
    Robbo Aurier Pieters
    Salah Sterling Dilva Mahrez Son (c)
    Ings Kane

    Gtg?

    1. ZTF
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Might be able to get N.Williams/KDB over Robbo/Mahrez if you fancy it

  20. ZTF
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 27 days ago

    Ederson (3.9)
    TAA Doherty Saiss (C.Taylor*, Ngakia*)
    Bruno Salah Dilva (C) Sterling Martial
    Greenwood Ings (Connolly)

    Gtg?

    1. BERGKOP
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Yep. I'd be captaining Sterling

    2. fish&chips
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Not sure about double wolves defence against Chelsea who need to go for it but not worth a hit.

      Also agree on sterling (c)

    3. sunzip14
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      I wouldn't be too confident on double wolves defense but I guess you have no more FT? Gtg otherwise.

      1. ZTF
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Yeah sadly not. Was hoping to have Taylor and Ngakia for this weekend!! 🙂

    4. ZTF
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Cheers guys, I am still very much considering sterling c but as referenced above my rival is 18 pts in front with a free hit, so I feel like I need a differential

  21. Werner Brothers
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 27 days ago

    Martinez or McCarthy?
    Martinez play against Watford side fighting for relegation. They have sarr doucoure & deeney who regularly score.
    McCarthy playing against dull side SHU with nothing to play for.

    1. ZTF
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Haha, I think I agree with what you think. McCarthy

      1. Werner Brothers
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        thanks mate... Has been with martinez all weekend, will be hard against all odd

    2. BERGKOP
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      McCarthy for me

      1. Werner Brothers
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        Thanks mate

  22. Werner Brothers
    • 5 Years
    2 months, 27 days ago

    Any chance TAA will be benched?
    They may play neco to give experience

    1. BERGKOP
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      TAA is a don't buy, don't sell for me.

      1. Werner Brothers
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 27 days ago

        He's a sell & get back for me now... Lose so much value on him when i bring him back

  23. sunzip14
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 27 days ago

    Have exact money for Willian>Dilva. Do it now or wait for leaked team news?

    1. ZTF
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Do you have any other rotation risks?

  24. yalala
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    2 months, 27 days ago

    Anyone fancy Mane over Salah?

    1. BERGKOP
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Why not. Mane is a great option if he plays

    2. Two Popes and a Gazza
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Not with that desperate look in Salah's eyes.

    3. Rik Waller
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      Yeh Mo is a greedy bugger and his confidence doesn't seem to suffer even if he misses a million chances.
      Final game usually brings a lot of goals and I can see Mo grabbing as many as possible. Pens etc.

      If you fancy a small gamble then yeh why not? No doubt Mane could easily outscore him. But against the odds imo.

    4. Max City
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      if 0.3m matters then yea

    • 3 Years
    2 months, 27 days ago

    ongoing, continuous, never-ending, classic question:

    which one?

    KDB
    Jesus
    Mahrez

    1. Holmes
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      If all are starting, I prefer them in following order: Jesus, Kevin, Mahrez

  28. kysersosa
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    2 months, 27 days ago

    Managers, anything drastic need changing with this FH team?

    Martínez
    Robertson, Pieters, Walker-Peters
    D.silva, Martial, Mane, (S)terling, Mahrez
    Ings Kane

    Button, Williams, Connolly, 3.9

    TIA

    1. Lucky Z
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 27 days ago

      I would have Pulisic

  29. Lucky Z
    • 3 Years
    2 months, 27 days ago

    Guys please help to choose the best combo!

    Bruno | Martial | KDB | Pulisic | Willian
    Vardy | Ings (Greenwood)

    2 FTs, 1.7 ITB

    A. KDB + Martial => Sterling + D.Silva
    B. Willian + Vardy => D.Silva + Kane
    C. Martial + Vardy => D.Silva/Mahrez + Kane
    D. Other
