FPL Gameweek 4 team news: Injury updates on Pulisic, Son, Mane, Vardy and more

Our weekly press conference summary rounds up the headline injury news and stand-out manager quotes from the pre-match conference calls.

MANCHESTER UNITED V TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR

The Son Heung-min (hamstring) injury saga drags on, with the Korean having initially been ruled out until after the international break but now apparently having an outside chance of being fit for Sunday’s match against Manchester United.

Speaking after full-time in the Europa League win over Maccabi Haifa on Thursday night, Jose Mourinho said:

I don’t believe [he can play]. But because he is so optimistic and always trying to give us positive feelings and hopes, I don’t want to say he is completely out – because maybe he can surprise us.

Giovani Lo Celso (knock) is also a doubt, with the Spurs boss saying:

Apart from Lo Celso, who is a question mark for Sunday, no more problems.

United appear to be relatively injury-free bar Phil Jones (knee) and Axel Tuanzebe (foot), with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer saying of Harry Maguire (knock):

Harry [Maguire] had a knock after the league game, a big hole in his ankle! He should be okay. Apart from that I think we’re okay, no more injuries from the cup game.

CHELSEA V CRYSTAL PALACE

Only Hakim Ziyech (knee) and Billy Gilmour (knee) remain on the injury list at Chelsea with Christian Pulisic (hamstring) set to be involved for the Blues against Crystal Palace on Saturday – but not from the start.

Frank Lampard told reporters:

Pulisic is in the squad for tomorrow. He won’t start the match because of the injury he’s had and it’s been a difficult injury but I am very keen to get him back in there. It’s great to have him back for himself and for the boost he gives the team because he’s an important player for us. Hakim Ziyech is getting closer but he’s not quite fit enough to be on the bench.

Jeffrey Schlupp (muscle) and Nathan Ferguson (knee) remain out for Palace while the game will very likely come too soon for Gary Cahill (hamstring), James Tomkins (thigh) and Patrick van Aanholt (shoulder) despite that trio’s return to training.

Roy Hodgson said:

They’re gradually coming back but obviously, they’ve been out for a long time so they’re not really ready to go straight back into the team. This week we’ve seen the re-emergence of Gary Cahill, James Tomkins and Patrick van Aanholt. We’re limiting the contact work as far as he [Van Aanholt] is concerned as it’s a shoulder injury but it’s good to see those guys back in training.

The Palace boss also said that he “can’t put a timescale” on Ferguson’s return, with his recovery from a knee injury a “slow process”.

LEEDS UNITED V MANCHESTER CITY

Pablo Hernandez (groin) and Adam Forshaw (hip) remain Leeds United’s only two confirmed injury-related absentees for the visit of Manchester City but Jack Harrison is ineligible to play against his parent club.

Marcelo Bielsa all but confirmed that Ezgjan Alioski would come into the side, saying that the Macedonia international “is able to do as well or better than Harrison” in the left-wing role.

Gabriel Jesus (muscle) and Sergio Aguero (knee) remain out for City, while Ilkay Gundogan isn’t likely to feature after his period of self-isolation.

Ruben Dias could be involved, however, with Pep Guardiola saying:

[Dias] trained twice – yesterday and today. He settled good. He is part of the team, we have a training session this afternoon.

Today was the first day [Gundogan] came back to the locker room, but he didn’t train with us. He will train with us during the international break and we will see.

EVERTON V BRIGHTON AND HOVE ALBION

Jonjoe Kenny (ankle), Allan (muscle) and Andre Gomes (unspecified) all picked up injuries for Everton in midweek and will sit out Saturday’s match against Brighton, while Richarlison (ankle) faces a late fitness test.

Carlo Ancelotti told reporters on Friday:

Allan, after the international break he will be ready. Jonjoe is out for 4 weeks. The twist on his ankle is quite serious. Gomes, I think he will be ready [soon]. If we played Sunday or Monday he would be fine. It is a little thing.

Richarlison we are trying to [get him fit]. He is better. We are going to have a test tomorrow morning and see if he is available to play or not.

An international break follows Gameweek 4, with James Rodriguez and Yerry Mina set to be in action for Colombia just over three days before the Merseyside derby in mid-October.

Asked about Rodriguez, Ancelotti said:

He doesn’t have a lot of time to recover, I hope he can recover well for the game against Liverpool. If he doesn’t – he’s going on the bench!

Long-term absentees Jose Izquierdo (knee), Christian Walton (ankle) and Florin Andone (knee) remain out for Albion, while Saturday’s clash with Everton looks to have come too soon for Alireza Jahanbakhsh (hamstring) and Davy Propper (Achilles).

Yves Bissouma returns from suspension, however.

LEICESTER CITY V WEST HAM UNITED

Jamie Vardy (hip) and Jonny Evans (calf) are expected to be fit for Gameweek 4, although Dennis Praet (knee) faces a late fitness test.

Brendan Rodgers told reporters on Friday:

Jonny is fine. Thankfully he just felt it a little tight but it was more having played his first game, so he was okay,” the Leicester manager commented on Friday.

And like I said afterwards, Jamie is absolutely fine. He has this little something in his hip which takes a few days to settle down and he’s fine, he’s okay.

Dennis, we’ll see how he is. He’s trained but we just need to see what the reaction is for that. Obviously, he came off but that wasn’t as serious as what we thought.

Issa Diop and Josh Cullen have been back in training following their stints in self-isolation so could come into the reckoning against Leicester this weekend.

David Moyes will be forced into at least one change, however, with Ryan Fredericks (hamstring) ruled out until after the international break.

ASTON VILLA V LIVERPOOL

Sadio Mane has tested positive for COVID-19 in the run-up to Sunday’s clash with Aston Villa, so the Senegal international will miss out in Gameweek 4 as he embarks on a period of self-isolation.

Joel Matip (muscle), Kostas Tsimikas (thigh), Thiago Alcantara (illness) and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (knee) are unavailable but Jordan Henderson was declared injury-free by his manager in Friday’s pre-match press conference.

Match fitness could still be an issue for the club captain, however, with Jurgen Klopp saying:

Hendo will be part of parts of the training today. So he absolutely has no muscle issues, it’s all fine, he’s not injured anymore and now we have to make sure he can make the next step. What that means for the weekend, I don’t know.

Jack Grealish has trained after sustaining a dead leg early on in Monday’s win over Fulham, a match the Villa talisman finished despite that early knock.

Bjorn Engels (thigh), Wesley (knee) and Tom Heaton (knee) remain out, while Kortney Hause (muscle) was added to the injury list on Thursday and Orjan Nyland has been struggling with a back problem for the last fortnight. 

Dean Smith confirmed that Ross Barkley was “in his thoughts” following his loan move from Chelsea.

WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS V FULHAM

There was predictably no clear-cut update on Daniel Podence (shoulder) or Marcal (calf) from Nuno Espirito Santo on Friday, with the Wolves boss only saying:

We have some issues still to attend [to], players that are recovering, players that have knocks from the previous games. So we still have tomorrow to determine who is going to be in the squad.

Podence has been named in the Portugal squad, at least, which raises hopes that he is fit for this weekend.

Scott Parker confirmed that Kenny Tete (calf) and Mario Lemina (unspecified) will miss the match against Wolves and that Harrison Reed (unspecified) is “touch and go”.

New signing Ademola Lookman will be involved this weekend “in some capacity”.

NEWCASTLE UNITED V BURNLEY

Steve Bruce has problems at centre-half, with Ciaran Clark (thigh) and Paul Dummett (match fitness) ruled out and Jamaal Lascelles (hamstring) described as a “bit of a problem” for the weekend.

Matt Ritchie (shoulder), Matty Longstaff (thigh), Martin Dubravka (heel) and Dwight Gayle (knee) remain absentees and Emil Krafth (hip) and DeAndre Yedlin (knock) are doubts, but there is better news on the fitness front elsewhere with Jamal Lewis (eye) clocking up 90 minutes against Newport County in midweek and Allan Saint-Maximin (ankle) nearing a return.

Steve Bruce said of Saint-Maximin:

It looks as if he could be fit. A big day for him today but he’s trained all week. We decided not to risk him against Newport. We hope Allan is well, he’s got over his ankle injury and we’re glad to see him back.

Jack Cork (ankle), Ben Mee (thigh), Matthew Lowton (knock) and Jay Rodriguez (ankle) are set to miss Saturday’s game against Newcastle, with Johann Berg Gudmundsson (knee) and Robbie Brady (rib) rated as “touch and go”.

James Tarkowski made his return from a bruised toe against Manchester City in midweek, while Ashley Barnes also made a competitive playing comeback in the EFL Cup on Wednesday after nine months on the sidelines.

ARSENAL V SHEFFIELD UNITED

Arsenal have yet to issue their regular pre-match injury bulletin ahead of Sunday’s clash with Sheffield United but Emile Smith Rowe (shoulder), Pablo Mari (ankle), Gabriel Martinelli (knee), Shkodran Mustafi (hamstring) and Calum Chambers (knee) are all expected to remain out.

Cedric Soares (calf) and Kieran Tierney (groin) both made playing returns in the last week.

Lys Mousset (toe) and Jack O’Connell (knee) remain out for the Blades but John Egan returns from suspension for his side’s trip to north London.

SOUTHAMPTON V WEST BROMWICH ALBION

Nathan Redmond (ankle) has been back in training this week and Ralph Hasenhuttl says that the winger “is an option” for the visit of West Bromwich Albion this weekend.

The Saints otherwise have a fully fit squad.

Kieran Gibbs is still suspended for the Baggies but Conor Gallagher is in the frame to feature, having been ineligible to face his parent club in Gameweek 3.

The game may come too soon for Filip Krovinovic, though, who has only rejoined Albion in the last week.

    People who are bringing in Mahrez/thinking of bringing him in/have brought him in - what makes you think he will play? Bilva is back now and he has played the last 3 games. KDB was subbed at 60 mins and Bilva brought on for the last 30 midweek. The starting front four will be: KDB, Foden, Bilva and Sterling.

    1. F4L
      • 5 Years

      Personally I can't see anything other than City shifting back to their usual 433. It makes no sense to persist with the formation that just delivered a 5-2 thrashing against them.

      1. The Big Fella
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Making it even less likely he plays. Even if they stick with the present formation, I forgot about Torres too for competition. He is not starting this weekend.

    2. Oooo Matron
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Got burnt horribly by Mahrez last season so I'd avoid. Apart from KDB City are just too much stress for me.

      1. Limbo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Same. He’s awful to own. Easy to bench his points. Ings is cheaper (as an awful example). I’d rather go 5-6m and put the cash elsewhere.

      2. The Big Fella
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Sterling is a pretty safe bet too but then with KDB, that's a quarter of your budget.

    3. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      I think Torres is the bigger threat.

      My predicted front 4 is KdB, Sterling, Foden and Torres.

      Bilva is KdB cover. He's out of favor as part of the front 3.

      1. The Big Fella
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        I forgot about Torres too. Even more competition then. Mahrez won't be starting this weekend either way.

        Disagree. Pep loves Bilva.

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          *loved.

          Was barely played last year and he didn't impress as part of the front 3. I think he's looking more peripheral lately and will be used as cover for KdB or Foden more than as an out and out starter this season. We will see.

          1. The Big Fella
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 26 days ago

            Yeah you could be right. All I know is, KDB and possibly Sterling are the only assets I would invest in at City

    4. MikeBravo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Yeah, you strokers have all got Mahrez in, haven't you?! 😉

      1. The Big Fella
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Hahaha yeah reverse psychology 😉 Nah but seriously - he won't play and after Mou's comment about Son maybe playing at the weekend, I will risk it with him

        1. MikeBravo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Yes, the Son news is a bonus, as well as Pulisic being available - don't need Mahrez now...2 FTs saved for after the break...

  2. Oooo Matron
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years

    Werner out for - 4 to Ings or Jiminez?

    Both look good long term, but I'm leaning towards Ings who has been such good form and the fact Wolves seem very lacklustre in terms of attacking output.

    Thoughts?

    1. Sgt Frank Drebin
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      I wouldn't do it for -4... Unless you care very much about the team value and predict Werner to fall and Ings to rise, but still don't think it pays off

    Welcome to the Blades, Rhian.

    United have again smashed the club's record transfer fee to secure the services of the sought-after striker on a 5 year deal.

    Repost after posting in old article...

    How many years does Jamie Vardy have to keep doing what he does to convince people? Seeing fairly regular references to Vardy and his stats, and one unfavorable write up in the hot topic'd GW3 write up

    Stats provide a simplified numerical description of what is actually happening. I'm sure that doesn't need explaining to most managers but it does seem worth restating as a reminder

    So Vardy isn't getting many big chances, he isn't he getting many shots away, and so his score is treated as misleading, like the pens will dry up and the pionts with them. Anyone whose thoughts are heading down that street only needs to have a look at the pens to work out where the big chances are being headed off, and why he's not getting shots away...

    O'Shea trips Justin, Bartley trips Barnes, Garcia barges over Vardy, Walker trips Vardy

    The pens and the big chances are linked. When the pens dry up, in all likelihood the big chances and shots away increase. Leicester are currently playing very well and while they continue to do so that will continue to manifest itself in points for Vardy, one way or another. They'll create chances for Vardy, or terrified defenders will hand him them from the spot

    1. Camzy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      That's the optimistic way of looking at it.

      However, in the game where they didn't get penalties, Vardy got nothing. He got nothing in a 4-2 win at Burnley.

      That is really not encouraging as someone looking for a premium forward. He had 21 touches in the entire game against City. 20 vs Burnley, 17 vs West Brom.

      That is shockingly low. When he was emerging as a super hot prospect last season, he had underlying data to back it up. I saw his shots in the box up, his shots on target up etc. He passed the eye test, he looked involved. He really doesn't seem as good an option this year, and once the pens dry up, so will his points.

      1. Limbo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        I thought he looked pretty sharp last week (only seen extended Highlights).

        1. Camzy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          His movement is always dangerous but he doesn't actually touch the ball haha.

          I dunno, Vardy is always a weird one to me.

          1. Olson
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 26 days ago

            He had a great chance v Burnley btw, just failed to convert

      2. Olson
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Five pens in three is very unlikely to continue, but what makes you think the pens will dry up, what makes you think Leicester won't win well above the average number of pens. All 5 have come from players fouling attacking players, two from Vardy. If we're going to play optimism/pessimism, what on earth is the potential if/when Leicester also start benefiting from the handball pens that most other teams have benefited from so far...

        1. Olson
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          *4, sorry...

    2. Limbo
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Scored a superb goal last week. And on eye test alone, I had Vardy until 10 mins ago.

      But front 3 of DCL/Ings/Jimi allow significant gains in MF. It’s a tough call.

      If there was a budget striker performing he’d be a banker.

    3. BoleynWin
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      He’s a proven scorer, when people (me included) think he’s going to enter a new season and suddenly slow down due to age we are regularly proven wrong.

      I don’t give much credit to stats, it’s the eye test for me. I don’t think he’s been overly impressive so far this season, remove the penalties & we could easily be looking at a Werner-esque scenario of a circa 10mill striker scoring 2 & 4 points each week.

      I’ll be punished without him this season I’m sure, hopefully Barnes starts putting his chances away & convert his strong start to actual FPL points.

      1. Olson
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        He's won 2 of those penalties with his play. You can't just remove them and turn him into Werner.

        1. Limbo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Haha

        2. BoleynWin
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          It’s probably handy to read the replies in context. I was referencing Werner for his points return, not comparing their style of play etc.
          City were a shambles at the weekend, a title pushing team to have a centre back partnership of a relegated Ake & Garcia who’s openly refusing to sign a new contract to push a move to La Liga, it was never going to end well and the sub par performance was no surprise. Desperately lunging in on Vardy at every opportunity isn’t going to happen every weekend.

          If you are sold on Vardy then stick with him, he’s a differential and that’s what you want in this game to climb the rankings. Surely the fact more people aren’t joining you is only a positive?

          1. Olson
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 26 days ago

            I did. And I didn't suggest it had anything to do with style of play. My point is you can't just remove the pens and say we are looking at a blanking premium striker, because he's winning and scoring the pens. Why don't they count!?

            1. BoleynWin
              • 3 Years
              1 month, 26 days ago

              You’re talking like he’s been robbed of the 32 points he’s scored purely because he’s not valued on this forum. The penalties do count, hence why he’s sitting pretty at the top of the striker rankings. However from a hypothetical point going forward he’s not coming into my team for numerous reasons I’ve touched on, I don’t think that;
              A) Vardys open play has been overly impressive, I haven’t seen those running in behind off the last mans shoulder & ending up 1 v 1 with the keeper, arguably his trademark.
              B) The penalty awards will continue at the rate they have been thus far, it’s completely inconceivable to me but I’m here to be proved wrong
              C) He will stay injury free, this groin problem that’s rearing it’s head will likely mean rotation or reduced minutes.

              Like I said, enjoy the fact you’ve picked a differential & the masses aren’t jumping on him. You don’t need everyone to agree with you to win FPL.

    Sold Son for a hit on monday.

    If he's back after international should I use FH now?

      No. FH is valuable.

      Currently on Salad

      1. Little Red Lacazette
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Salad is good.

        1. Amey
          • 2 Years

          It's my favorite autocorrect.
          Don't even care to correct now 😎

    2. Dynamic Duos

      Salah

    3. Rash
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Even though he's not great away from home and villa been solid at the back lately?

      1. Dynamic Duos
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        They have played to easy games

        1. Rash
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Fair point

  21. Amey
    • 2 Years

    Anguissa from Fulham is nailed right ??
    Why he didn't play 90 first GW ??

  22. Mr.K
    • 6 Years

    On a WC. Am I on too many bandwagons?
    McCarthy - Nyland
    Robertson - TAA - Lamptey - Digne - Mitchell
    Salah - Zaha - KDB - Mendy - Bissouma
    Calvert-Lewing - Wilson - Ings

    1. IN SANE IN DE BRUYNE
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      No, it looks good!

      1. Mr.K
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Thank you, Sir!

    2. FPL_trail_runner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Change Zaha to Barnes
      Digne to James

      Dont like Wilson longterm term either, poor fixtures and a team which is struggling to create big chances

      1. Mr.K
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Thanks! I don't like Chelsea defence, but Barnes is worth consideration cause I'm not sold on Zaha. I do agree about Wilson but don't see great alternatives.

        1. FPL_trail_runner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 26 days ago

          Antonio is a much better longterm option

          James is very underpriced for his stats if he remains in the 11

          1. Mr.K
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 26 days ago

            Antonio is a good shout. I'll look into switching after his terrible fixtures are over.

    3. chriscosta
      • 9 Years

      I would downgrade Digne and upgrade one of Mendy or Bissouma
      Since you dont have Raul, i would go for podence and 4 to 4.5 def (konsa, KWP and change keepers to Martinez ) or maybe taylor or something

      1. Mr.K
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        I'm trying to keep a strong defence this season. That said, Perhaps the above-suggested Digne to James could be a decent compromise and would allow Bissouma to Podence...

          Or Keane if you have faith in Everton

  23. Erez Avni

    For the long run

    A. Martinez & KWP

      1 month, 26 days ago

    1.4m ITB, Anything worth a hit here with Son/Podence risks and Brewster?

    Martinez
    Robbo Saiss RJames
    Salah KDB Son Podence Foden
    DCL Jimenez

    Forster Lamptey Mitchell Brewster

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      I'd probably save

      1. _Ninja_
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Cheers mate. Thinking the same and hoping Podence makes it

  27. Frank Koscielny
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 26 days ago

    Play Dier (mun) or Taylor (new)?

    1. Amey
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Charlie Taylor

      1. Frank Koscielny
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Cheers!

    2. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Dier may go for a dump and lose his CS so Taylor for me

      1. Frank Koscielny
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Cheers!

    3. Traction Engine Foot

      Taylor

    ASM -> Foden for a hit?

    1. Pukki Blinders
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Foden no guarantee to start so no

    2. Little Red Lacazette
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Nooo. ASM may well play.

    3. Traction Engine Foot
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Too risky for me

    4. FPL_trail_runner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Id easily dump ASM, who is a poor FPL asset

      But foden may or may not give the points back this week- Torres is on the cards and then there is Jesus back maybe after the IB.

  29. Traction Engine Foot
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 26 days ago

    Son and Vinagre to Trossard and Robertson worth -4? If neither play I'd have Mitchell and Bissouma coming in.

    1. Lazaretti
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Maybe not Trossard, but I would prob. take a hit.

      Having both Son & Vinagre but already used my FT so ifI do it it wouldbefor -8. Might just transfer Vinagre out

      1. Traction Engine Foot
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        Cheers. 0.1 off Barnes annoyingly..

      2. Lazaretti
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 26 days ago

        I am looking Zaha, Mahrez, & Taylor wol def as a potential players to bring in.

  30. Pukki Blinders
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 26 days ago

    Start Taylor (new) or Lewis (BUR)?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 26 days ago

      Lewis
