FPL Gameweek 2 team news and injury updates so far

There were only four pre-Gameweek 2 virtual media gatherings on Thursday afternoon, with the bulk of the conference calls set to follow on Friday.

With there being four Premier League teams in Carabao Cup action on Thursday evening and Tottenham Hotspur starting their UEFA Europa League campaign in Bulgaria, however, not all 20 top-flight managers will give stand-alone press conferences ahead of Saturday’s Fantasy Premier League deadline.

Jose Mourinho, for example, is only scheduled to face the media immediately after full-time in Plovdiv, so any fresh injury concerns that only become apparent between then and Sunday’s clash with Southampton may well go unreported.

Here’s what we know so far.

THURSDAY’S PRESSERS

The managers of the three newly promoted clubs and Crystal Palace were all facing the media on Thursday afternoon.

Two of the sides who came up from the Championship last season, Leeds United and Fulham, meet each other this weekend.

Adam Forshaw (hip) remains unavailable for that match but Marcelo Bielsa revealed on Thursday that he expects Liam Cooper to be fit, with the Scotland international having missed out on the opening weekend with a minor calf problem:

We think Cooper will be ready to play the game on Saturday, there are no new injuries from the last few days. Forshaw he’s been taking part in collective training today apart from any actual playing of football. Next week his rehabilitation will continue.

New signing Rodrigo was among the 11 changes that Bielsa made for the Whites’ EFL Cup defeat to Hull City in midweek.

When asked about the Spaniard’s match-fitness, the Argentinean strongly hinted at another start for Patrick Bamford at the weekend:

He’s already ready [for the Premier League]. He won’t start the game at the weekend but he’s in a good condition to start if we want him too.

Aleksandar Mitrovic was among the starters in Fulham’s win over Ipswich Town in midweek, following his benching in Gameweek 1.

All of the Cottagers’ players appeared to come through unscathed from that encounter, with boss Scott Parker saying:

Everyone pulled through last night. We got back late, the players have just been in the gym for recovery. We’ll have a gauge on it tomorrow morning on exactly where everyone is. At this moment there’s nothing jumping and I suspect we’ll be ok.

A number of Fulham’s new signings also featured in the EFL Cup and, when asked about whether any of them would feature against Leeds this weekend, Parker said:

We’ll have to see really. We got back in the early hours, players are just reporting in to do their recovery so the first time we will see the boys on the training field will be tomorrow. We’ll make a judgement on where we see the players physically.

This is a league where you can’t afford to carry players. When you’re us you need to be at your peak of fitness. With the quick turnaround in pre-season and players late coming into the building, some are just a little bit short at the moment.

Hopefully, we can get some out there because that will make us stronger but I’m not going to risk long term injury of the players.

Nathan Ferguson (knee), Gary Cahill (hamstring), James Tomkins (thigh) and Patrick van Aanholt (shoulder) remain sidelined ahead of the trip to Manchester United, while Connor Wickham (unknown) and Christian Benteke (foot) have only just returned to training and won’t be considered for selection.

Roy Hodgson also said that Mamadou Sakho isn’t yet match-fit enough despite featuring in the EFL Cup in midweek but Jairo Riedewald is expected to be back in training on Friday after a minor muscle problem forced his absence in Gameweek 1.

The Palace boss said:

We are starting to get players back from injury. Mamadou Sakho, of course, is the latest to be able to take part in training sessions. Christian Benteke and Connor Wickham took part in today’s training session, albeit with Connor it was more modified than with Christian.

We hope also that Jaïro Riedewald will train tomorrow – he didn’t train with the first-team today – but we hope he will tomorrow having recovered from the injury he picked up last week.

In terms of fitness of players, we are in a much healthier position than we have been in some time.

There was another mention of budget FPL defender Ferguson when Hodgson discussed free agent Nathaniel Clyne, who is training with the Eagles:

He’s hoping to show to us and maybe other clubs his fitness. It might be [something we’re interested in], but a lot hinges on Nathan Ferguson and how his injury situation pans out over the next few weeks.

Matt Phillips and Conor Townsend both made a playing return for West Bromwich Albion in midweek but Ahmed Hegazi was absent, with Slaven Bilic explaining:

Hegazi was on the bench on Sunday. He came in on Monday, the guys who didn’t play against Leicester had training. He did his hamstring in training, that’s the reason why he wasn’t involved tonight.

Monday or even yesterday they didn’t know how big it is. It shouldn’t be big, he didn’t do it in a sprint or anything like that. Hopefully, it’s a smaller one.

Kenneth Zohore (calf) remains sidelined.

There were 11 Premier League clubs in Gameweek 1 action who subsequently played in the EFL Cup second round in midweek – and eight of them made 10 or more changes to their starting XI.

Southampton were the only top-flight side who went (almost) full strength, although Wolves’ three first-choice centre-halves, Adama Traore and Leander Dendoncker all kept their places from Monday night; ironically, those two clubs bowed out of the competition.

An ankle injury to Jarrad Branthwaite meant that Lucas Digne was thrown on as a 24th-minute substitute in Everton’s 3-0 win over Salford City, while Nathan Redmond was forced off in Saints’ 2-0 loss to Brentford.

With James Tarkowski ruled out with a “toe injury” amid mounting speculation over his future, Burnley lost another body when Johann Berg Gudmundsson was stretchered off after quarter of an hour in Burnley’s match with Sheffield United.

Dale Stephens limped off with five minutes to go in Brighton’s 4-0 win over Portsmouth on Thursday evening.

Meanwhile, in the Europa League, Mourinho made only four changes for Spurs’ 2-1 win over Lokomotiv Plovdiv.

Son Heung-min, Harry Kane and Matt Doherty all got 90-minute run-outs but Dele Alli didn’t make the trip.

Giovani Lo Celso made his return from injury and lasted the entire game.

    Hard to believe Sterling ownership is at 4.6%. Definitely having him by GW4 and giving him captaincy vs Leeds

      Will rise after he scores well against Wolves and Foxes

      Jorginho/Klich & Digne is safer

      Though I actually went for Foden myself this week but it's a punt. Think he'll end up in everyone's team at some point this season just a matter of when.

      1. Pep Roulette
        • 3 Years

        Cheers mate! Why Klich over Podence? And also over Harrison?

      Isn’t it blatantly obvious?

      Plays for a manager who, to put it politely, doesnt get the best out of attacking players

      1. I Must Break You
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Although he scored 5.6 per game last year for that same manager, which is top 8 among MID's (and he's cheaper than everyone above him).
        He also had 6 penalty area touches, 3 chances created, and a shot on target in his GW1 blank, which were Top 4 underlying stats for MID last week. So reports of his fantasy death I think are a bit exaggerated.
        Just another point of view to consider. Given his next 7 fixtures, I'm a "hold" on Son as opposed to a "sell."

        1. Joggers Nipple
          • 11 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          A better manager would get more from him, he scores well despite his manager.
          Listen to James, life long TOT fan, on Planet FPL for real insight into this

          Hey, just my opinion, but TOT players are not for me. Good luck to you

    3. I Must Break You
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      He had the audacity to blank in one game week

      1. Seanigula
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        and today, and costs 9 mil, and there are better choices, and the team looks terrible...

        1. I Must Break You

          • 2 Years

          Sure, sure, sure, and sure. Just don't make the mistake of over-emphasizing "form", as defined by FPL (ppm in recent matches), in making transfers. It's a TERRIBLE predictor (correlation extremely close to 0.0) of a player's next GW score.

          I would also ask what stats would back-up the contention that there are "better choices" at the mid-to-high tier range for MID's? Pulisic? Havertz? James Rodriguez? Willian, who despite one good GW, has never averaged more than 4.7 ppm over a season? Pep-roulette Mahrez?

    4. Vasqujg
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Son is either loved or hated. No in between

      When he doesn’t score, he’s hated

      No Bruno?!

      1. IRBOX ⚽
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Surplus to requirement this season. Overpriced for what he offers imo. Happy to chance my view if he looks great in open play but not sure how he can compete with the premiums of Salah and KDB

        1. The Dance
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          That’s fair enough, all subjective i guess, i do believe he’ll do great again this season though, always has a real drive to deliver. Mo and KDB will always be superior, but Bruno is up there.
          Good overall team though! 🙂

      Foden is a bit of a risk, especially as your bench coverage is poor this week. But not much else you can do there really. Good luck mate.

      1. IRBOX ⚽
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        I don’t think it’s risky at all to be fair. D.Silva is gone and Mahrez has COVID

        1. Francescoli
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Even if he does start, his mind is probably elsewhere after the Iceland incident.

          1. IRBOX ⚽
            • 3 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            Alternatively he will have a point to prove after negative media coverage. You can spin it how you like based on your own bias and cognitive dissonance

    39 and over in GW1 qualifies.

      42 points for me this week. expected the worse, but somehow survived!

  7. HD7

    1 month, 5 days ago

    Whats the info about Alli, mates?
    Fall out with Mou?
    Maybe in Europa he was rotated, however he was subbed at half time vs Everton...

  8. Puntillimon
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Alli to James only, perhaps keep martial transfer for next week. Spurs aren’t the best at the back

    1. HD7

      This is what I ponder too. How much time till price changes?

    Thoughts on leeds defence? Good options or will they prove too leaky?

    1. Scratch
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Think they'll be half decent against mid - weak teams when playing at home.

      1. Tempestic
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Better or worse than Villa? Villa did show some promise post lockdown

    2. IRBOX ⚽
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      They are good. Better defensively in the Championship last season than what Sheffield United were in their promotion campaign. Would probably wait until fixtures improve or adopt on a WC

      1. Scratch
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        The Sheffield United comparison doesn't mean much. SU have a much more solid defensive standard setup. Much of Leeds' defensive capability in the championship came from dominating possession and almost doing a City in a lower division which they won't be able to do against a lot of PL opposition. Not to mention their best defender is back at Brighton and Cooper is injured.

        1. Tempestic
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          This is what concerns me, although Cooper should be back for Fulham

  10. NATSTER
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years

    It's quite early to wildcard, but the look of wildcard team is so nice.

    Probably wait for one more day and activate on GW3.

    1. Seanigula
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      The longer you wait, the bigger the advantage

      1. NATSTER
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        That's my usual game too, but it looks a bit different this season when we can abroad players from two Manchester teams before the crowd.

        Anyway, Palace and Wolves could make them difficult games for both.

      Do whatever makes you happy.
      So many sanctimonious people on here with no hit, no wc mantras

    Knee gave way, Son out for Hames. Can't be losing 0.1 at this stage.

    1. The Dance
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Would rather of kept Son iver the James hype, but then again i did get rid of Son dor Bruno.

      1. Scots Gooner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Everton have awesome fixtures, so even if i only give James a few weeks I'm sure he can match/beat Son's score. Was more afraid of losing value and being screwed out of future moves.

        Had a bad feeling about Spurs from the start, got swayed by their fixtures. Never again.

        1. The Dance
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          That’s fair i guess, i got rid myself like i say, Spurs certainly don’t look like a team that can score 4 or 5 goals in a game that’s for sure.

        2. Puntillimon
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Arguably, Everton was the worst fixture in a Long run of following fixtures. I’m gonna hold. But I have hamez too so in a way covered

          1. Scots Gooner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 5 days ago

            To be honest, its a decision made 80% on the price drop. Team value was looking tight for future moves as it is, so didn't want to be tied up by the -0.1.

            Even if James can match Son's points for the next few weeks, I'll see it as a successful transfer.

  12. davies

          Mind you the 2 goals conceded were in the first 6 mins & they never conceded after that so in a way the Sheffield defense came right.

    2. Joggers Nipple
      • 11 Years

          Agreed! His form has been impressive since the 19/20 season restart and helped himself to an assist in GW1.

      0-1 but had hoped for rises to offset. Still, if Eddie plays this weekend I laugh longest

      Hoped to save FT but glad I did Nketiah to DCL as that 0.2 could come in handy yet!

    14. Deth
      • 1 Year

      I need to be in charge of the price change algorithm! I feel managers should be allowed to vote for who they want to rise/drop in price out of the nominees for that gw on the fpl site.

      Price changes & Baps manipulated by Fpl tower every single season, also a reason why I won’t win fpl

      Any ideas as to why the likes of KDB Bruno Gabriel and Digne haven’t risen ? (Please don’t say WCs, cause obviously not the reason)
      They were all at 100+ this week on fplstatistics

  19. NATSTER
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years

    No price rise. That's cool.

      Was hoping for lots of rises

    Need a mid at 6.0 or less to facilitate a more to Martial. Assume I’m only keeping for a couple games. Leeds?

    1. Seanigula
      • 11 Years

      Klich

    2. white lightning
      • 7 Years

      Yeah 1 of the Leeds Klich or Harrison. A lot going for Klich as they think he's on penalties.

    3. Pep Roulette

      Leave it like that

    2. jamesjoseph2770
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years

      What will you do if both Werner and ASM are rules out this week?

    3. Sanchit
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      If all others are fit, I'd personally do Adams to Richarlison

  22. Daniel - Go Granville
    • 11 Years

    The price changes algorithm might have been adjusted. Hmmm....

  23. Pep Roulette

    Will Jota be available for City?

    Nuno: "I don't know. He was not on the squad list, period." #wwfc

    1. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      "He wasn’t available, these are decisions we have to make. We have to prepare the squad, have to know what is the moment of the season. He was not available for the game. These are our decisions to make."

      Nuno on Diogo Jota's absence tonight. #wwfc

      1. waldo666
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        He was on the bench though, yeah?

        1. waldo666
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Ah, he was not, my eyes must have deceived me.

        2. Pep Roulette
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 5 days ago

          Against Sheffield yes but didn't come on. In the cup game, he wasn't even in the squad.

      2. Najoman86
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Concerning. Jota was my punt for GW1

  24. El Fenomeno R9
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Should i get now on WC one of Leeds defenders Dallas/Ayling over Lamptey/Justin ?

    Saves transfer and will be overpriced if they rise to 4.6,could easy happen after this GW

    1. Joggers Nipple
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Long term its prob a good move

      1. El Fenomeno R9
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Cheers,guess Justin out for Ayling

  25. LucasMoregametime
    1 month, 5 days ago

    % chance on Dele starting this GW? worth taking a -4 for James?

    1. F_Ivanovic
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      40%? hard to predict. i got rid though but i might have kept if I didn't also have Son. Mou just hard to read.

    2. FPL Zouma
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Probably wise no to take a hit on a defender! He is not going to score every week

      1. Alexis Nonsense
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Its Hamez not James

        1. Dynamic Duos
          • 7 Years

          This

        2. The 12th Man

        Agreed

  28. FreddyP3
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 5 days ago

    Very inclined to do Havertz->Mahrez for a hit. Havertz has Pool next and didn’t really impress in the debut.. and Mahrez is back in training since a few days back.
    Would you do it?

    1. Sloths
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I'd be inclined to have a little patience. At least for a match or two so you don't need to do it with a hit.

    2. Green_Army
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Maverick move if it works - but I'd be waiting on this at least until next week.

    3. IRBOX ⚽
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Mahrez has COVID

      1. waldo666
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        He was back in training on Tuesday.

    4. Pep Roulette
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      I see your point in getting Mahrez. But I don't see any point in selling Havertz!

  29. WALOR

    For draft league waivers tomorrow - order of preference?
    A Bernardo Silva
    B Klich
    C Podence

    1. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      C B A

    2. Dynamic Duos
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      How do the waivers work?

      1. WALOR
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        24 hours before deadline, the Manager with the last place team gets first pick of any unsigned player, off a pre-set list.
        Then next-to-last, and so on.
        Once those waiver bids are processed, you can grab any unsigned player at will until first kickoff.
        You can also make trades with other managers, of course.

  30. jia you jia you
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    This is my shopping list for next week:
    Salah
    KdB
    Jimenez
    Wolves defender
    8.5 GK combo
    4.0 defender

    1. Deth
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 5 days ago

      Hits aplenty

    2. Joggers Nipple
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 5 days ago

      WC? Looks about right, I might add Martial to that?

      1. jia you jia you
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 5 days ago

        Could happen if Salah impresses again and KdB looks the man! I'm actually considering going without MUN assets in the short-term...which is weird for me being a fan and all.
