FPL Gameweek 6 team news so far: Injury updates on De Bruyne, Rodriguez and more

The first Friday night Fantasy Premier League deadline of the season is almost upon us, so we’re bringing you a bonus, earlier-than-usual team news article this week with a careful eye on the last-minute mayhem tomorrow.

The managers of Leeds United, Aston Villa, Fulham, Brighton and Hove Albion, Sheffield United, Burnley and West Bromwich Albion all held their official pre-Gameweek 6 press conferences either on Wednesday or Thursday, with Jose Mourinho and Brendan Rodgers set to face the media after their UEFA Europa League ties later this evening.

The headline injury news so far doesn’t come from any of those pressers, however, but from an interview that Carlo Ancelotti conducted with everton.tv.

We’ll round up the key updates below.

EVERTON

Carlo Ancelotti will face the wider media on Friday but he has already delivered an injury bombshell in an in-house interview, revealing that James Rodriguez (knock) is a major doubt for the clash with Southampton.

Seamus Coleman (hamstring) is also sidelined, with his manager saying:

Unfortunately, James [Rodriguez] had a problem during the [Liverpool] game. He had a mistimed tackle with Virgil van Dijk. I think he will not be available for the game against Southampton.

Seamus Coleman had an injury during the [Liverpool] game, I think he will be out for two or three weeks. Jonjoe Kenny is back, he started training with the squad yesterday and I think he will be available for the next game.

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE/EUROPA LEAGUE CLUB UPDATES

Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola will face the media again on Friday but there were noteworthy comments from the Liverpool and Manchester City managers after their UEFA Champions League matches on Wednesday.

On Sadio Mane having an ice pack on his leg after being substituted, Klopp said:

Sadio has since a few days a dead leg and deals with that in that area. That’s the only thing why it’s still painful but it’s not a problem. When he doesn’t play, he puts ice on it.

Guardiola’s post-match comments raised the prospect of Kevin De Bruyne (muscle) and Aymeric Laporte (muscle) featuring in Gameweek 6, meanwhile, although Fernandinho (leg) has been ruled out for up to six weeks and Nathan Ake (groin) has a “niggle”.

I think Kevin [De Bruyne] and [Aymeric] Laporte will start training tomorrow. But I don’t know how it will be tomorrow and the next days. We will see.

It is bad news [for Fernandinho]. It is a problem in his leg. I think he will be out for four to six weeks. It is a big blow for us, with the amount of games.

De Bruyne and Laporte were indeed spotted training in pictures released by the club on Thursday.

Jamie Vardy (calf), Dani Ceballos (ankle) and Willian (calf) will miss their respective clubs’ Europa League ties on Thursday and be assessed ahead of the clash between Arsenal and Leicester City on Sunday.

Rob Holding (hamstring) is out for three weeks for the Gunners but Shkodran Mustafi (hamstring) is back in full training and available for selection.

Eric Bailly looks set for a spell on the sidelines with Manchester United, meanwhile.

LEEDS UNITED

Marcelo Bielsa said that budget FPL defender Pascal Struijk will replace Kalvin Phillips (shoulder) in midfield for the trip to Aston Villa on Friday. Liam Cooper (groin) is still a doubt while Diego Llorente (muscle) remains out.

On Phillips, Bielsa said:

It is not defined how long he will be out for. It could be more or it could be less [than six weeks]. And the one who will play in his place is Pascal Struijk.

Asked if his squad was too small, the Leeds boss added:

The squad is not small, as we have two players per position. For example, we have Bamford and Roberts [up front], Moreno and Pablo [in attacking midfield], Costa and Poveda [on the right], Raphinha and Harrison [on the left].

Almost all of them, barring Bamford and Cooper, play in more than one position. The wingers play on both sides, the full-backs a lot of times do this as well, the defensive midfielders can act as centre-backs.

ASTON VILLA

Reserve striker Keinan Davis (calf) is expected to train on Thursday and come back into contention for Aston Villa’s clash with Leeds but Kortney Hause (muscle) remains out and joins longer-term absentees Wesley (knee) and Tom Heaton (knee) on the sidelines.

Dean Smith said of his improving defence, meanwhile:

I feel the energy and enthusiasm of Matt Cash has improved us. Ezri Konsa has got better and better, along with Tyrone, they’ve got a really good understanding now. Matt Targett has really improved and [we have] the steadiness behind them of Emi.

SHEFFIELD UNITED

Chris Wilder confirmed that Jack O’Connell (knee) is out for the season and estimated that Lys Mousset (toe) will be “back on the grass” in six to eight weeks.

John Fleck (back) will be out for the next month, while the Blades are waiting on a medical report on Max Lowe, who suffered a concussion in last week’s game against Fulham.

The Sheffield United boss said of Rhian Brewster‘s chances of starting, meanwhile:

It was a difficult decision last week as I talked about, but he has put himself right in the frame to be involved at the weekend and start. He’s at the forefront of our thinking.

His natural ability and talent is there, we have seen that already but it’s just the physical and fitness side not opening him up to injury too soon.

There’s always a decision about the timing of that – he’s been bright and bubbly and in our thoughts to start on Saturday evening.

BRIGHTON AND HOVE ALBION

New signing Danny Welbeck will be assessed for match fitness ahead of Brighton’s clash with West Brom, while goalkeeper Christian Walton is also back in training following his recovery from an ankle injury sustained in pre-season.

Alireza Jahanbakhsh (hamstring) and Jose Izquierdo (match fitness) aside, however, the fitness situation is rosy for the Seagulls.

Graham Potter said:

Only Alireza, just still recovering from his hamstring. Hasn’t trained today, so we’ll see how he is tomorrow and the upcoming days. So he’s probably the doubt at the moment, everybody else seems to be OK.

Jose Izquierdo is having another spell with the under-23s tomorrow to build up some game-time. Apart from that, we’re fully fit.

[Welbeck] has had two good days training with us and there will be two more sessions before the game.

He’s kept himself in really good shape and we’re delighted with how he’s fitted into the group on and off the pitch. We’ll make a decision on Danny for Monday nearer the time.

Lewis Dunk begins a three-game ban.

BURNLEY

 1

Sean Dyche brought us up to speed on the fitness latest with the Clarets, saying:

Matt Lowton is making good progress so he will be considered. Erik Pieters managed to get through the game (at West Brom) but he has got a minor calf injury, so he is a doubt – certainly, touch and go I think.

Ben Mee’s getting better. He is not there yet but he’s back on the grass. He will need a bit of an extended period because he has been out quite a long period of time, so we will have to look after that side of things.

Jack Cork (ankle), Bailey Peacock-Farrell (hip) and Phil Bardsley (illness) remain out, along with Mee.

FULHAM AND WEST BROMWICH ALBION

Scott Parker told reporters on Thursday:

Injuries practically stay the same. Harrison Reed has trained with us the last couple of days.

Kenny Tete (calf), Josh Onomah (unspecified), Terence Kongolo (foot) and Joachim Andersen (ankle) remain out.

Slaven Bilić will be without Sam Field for “four to five weeks” after the midfielder suffered an injury to his left knee. 



More detailed information and predicted line-ups can be found in the Team News tab, which will be refreshed before the Gameweek 6 deadline at 18:30 BST on Saturday.

Keep an eye on our Twitter feed, too, for any late-breaking updates.

A video round-up with Andy and Neale will be filmed tomorrow.

  1. Who are all Lukakus
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Martinez
    Robbo Chilwell Saiss
    Salah(C) Son Grealish Hamez
    Kane DCL Maupay
    Sub: 4.0m - Dallas Mitchell Bissouma
    1 FT, 0.4m itb
    Looks good to save the FT?
    and who to sub in for Hamez:
    A. Dallas
    B. Mitchell
    C. Bissouma
    I watched the last Leeds game and realize Dallas attacking threat is non-existence. Wish I chose Ayling instead...

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      C

      1. Who are all Lukakus
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Surely chance of Clean sheet (as low as it is these days) is higher than another Bissouma 30m rocket?

    2. Rasping Drive
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I guess you haven't watched any of the other Leeds games, then. Dallas' attaching threat is hardly non-existent.

      1. Who are all Lukakus
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Yeah you are right, first time I own Leeds asset so I did watch only one game.
        Dallas looked class though, he pushed Traore off the ball like nothing

    3. Bad Kompany
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      A. Dallas does have quite a bit of attacking threat

  2. ivantys
      1 month, 8 days ago

      I'm gonna pull a sneaky Ings cap since Hames and Coleman are out

      1. Voodoo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Good luck with that.

      2. Bobby Digital
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Xssed my mind too

        1. ivantys
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Was on Sterling but I kept thinking he could blank, so I might as well gamble with Ings. Only KDB back would convince me to go back to Sterling.

      3. slavkob
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        What would you suggest here?

        Martinez
        Chilwell, Semedo, Reguilon
        Salah(c), Son, Pulisic, Grealish, James
        Kane, DCL

        Button, Brewster, Justin, 3.9

        1. Lukakuna
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Save and play Brewster

        2. FPL_trail_runner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Play Justin

          Arsenal by all metrics are now a midtable team.

          Their attacking numbers are very poor.

        3. Noah’s Ark
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Play Rodriguez. He either plays or doesn’t feature I reckon. Very low risk of a cameo.

      4. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Kane and Son benched

        1. Qaiss
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          To look sluggish against Burnley on Monday night in a good ol 0-0

        2. Trophé Mourinho
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Vinicius and Bale gonna wreck tonight

      5. Voodoo
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        To finally swap Vardy to Kane:

        Would you:

        Swap Bamford to Brewster OR
        Swap Jiminez to DCL

        1. Ibralicious
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Depends on which formation you prefer but DCL the much better playing option, if you want 3-4-3

          1. Voodoo
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Yeah 3-4-3, cheers.

      6. Cheshire Duck
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        TAA+Watkins > Matip+Kane for -4 ?

        1. Tinkermania
          • 1 Year
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Not for a hit. You are taking out 2 players due some good returns.

      7. Ibralicious
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        In a situation like this where J. Rod is very unlikely to start and even more unlikely to come off the bench for a 1 pointer, does it make more sense to keep him in the starting lineup on the off chance he does start?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          I’m starting him with the expectation of Bissouma coming in if he doesn’t play. I think a cameo is unlikely.

          1. Rasping Drive
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            He either starts or isn't in the squad.

        2. Zim0
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Yes yes it does. I have Mitchell first sub just in case and Bissouma second

          1. Little Red Lacazette
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            I currently have Bissouma 1st, Mitch 2nd. What is your reason for Mitch 1st?

        3. Lukakwho
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          that’s my logic pretty much plus the ceiling for him is much higher than starting my sub

          1. Ibralicious
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Yupp that's the thinking here

        4. HashAttack
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          I'm starting him ... but I also started with Richarlison the other week when he went off injured after 10 minutes

      8. royals forever
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Are there any improvements that I can make to this WC front 8

        Salah Son Havertz Barkley Soucek

        DCL Watkins Kane

        0.6 ITB

        Any ideas would be welcomed

        1. Eddie - Back to Square Owen
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          I guess it depends how fixed you are on your defence, but in short, yes.

          I have this:

          Robbo, Saiss, Creswell, Lamptey, Kilman
          Salah, Son, Grealish, Soucek, Bissouma,
          Kane, Aguero, DCL

          Which I think is stronger personally. I will place either Soucek or 4 defenders each week, but with West Ham's upcoming fixtures, I'm happy with that.

        William Hill odds

        anytime goalscorer:

        Yves Bissouma - 5/1
        Ben Chilwell - 14/1

        clean sheet:

        Brighton - 6/4
        Chelsea - 29/10

        I know who I'm starting

        1. FPL_trail_runner
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          1 month, 8 days ago

          chilwell takes set pieces , doesnt need to score a goal to get points.

          1. Zim0
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            That's only short-term. Ziyech is a setpiece specialist. He will take them and he's almost fit

            1. Zim0
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 8 days ago

          Chilwell. Don’t bench him.

            • 5 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            technically I'm starting James Rodriguez and benching both 🙂

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years

              Chilwell best be before Bissouma

                • 5 Years

                they are both before Branthwaite

          Chilwell second highest paid player at Chelsea, he will get what he wants?

        With kdb back in training,

        A) Keep
        B) Swap for Sterling
        C) need some Kane, so kdb/Jimmy to Grealish/Kane for -4

        1. Voodoo
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          C, Jimi has looked poor.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          I did C early (risky I know) playing the price game. Thought KDB might be out longer but I've made my bed now, plan to try and get him back for around GW10 and he may well not play yet anyway. I wouldn't bother with B now KDB is back in training but C still worth consideration with Spurs next 3 and Grealish in great form, I plan to keep him even when getting KDB back.

            This

      13. FPL_trail_runner
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 8 days ago

        This is the first week i really think there wont be big scores put up.

        May even be only a handful of teams who get more than 2.

        1. Qaiss
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          I think Arsenal will score 3, could see Man City/Liverpool also do the same

          1. FPL_trail_runner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Arsenal will not score 3. They are ranked 12th this year so far on attack and have even overperformed by nearly 2 goals

            All this despite already playing Fulham and Sheffield United.

            They are a midtable attacking unit now.

            1. Qaiss
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 8 days ago

              Too early in the season for those kind of assumptions. Leicester look really poor.

              1. FPL_trail_runner
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                1 month, 8 days ago

                You can extend the data way back to when Arteta was appointed

                or

                Even back before that

                All points the same.

        2. Zim0
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Bruno for captain it is

          1. FPL_trail_runner
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            1 month, 8 days ago

            Im currently on TAA

            1. Zim0
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 8 days ago

              I hope u get a 20 pointer. I have trent and robbo and strongly considering robbo as captain

              1. FPL_trail_runner
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                1 month, 8 days ago

                TAA is still creating lots of chances despite being deeper than Robbo

                And his free kicks are still on point.

                I also dont fancy Liverpool so much against Wilder. He is they type of manager to set up in a clever way.

                Sheffield will concede its just I currently think a Liverpool clean sheet is more likely than a Salah brace

                1. Zim0

                  I knoe that's why im keeping faith with trent because he could have had an easy goal and assist against Everton and a major haul against arsenal on another day.

            Someone basically said im an idiot for considering Bruno cap, some people on here clueless I swear. T
            hey presumably never watched Bruno last game and dont realise Chelsea are one of the leakiest defences in the league. Thriller written all over it that..
            Bruno is a decent cap option this week

              Worth considering that Mendy and Silva are returning, they looked great vs Sevilla. Silva is truly world class!

                  I capped DCL vs Pool, Bruno vs Chelsea is not a hard decision frankly

                Yeah I've vice captained him twice and my captains have failed while hes gotten a 12 and 11 pointer. Very annoying XD i don't know whether to do Bruno or Kane as captain. Maybe Robbo

              TAA and Mitrovic -> Kilman and Kane for - 4?

              This sounds pretty stupid, but Kane is in great shape and can go on and do a lot of damage if you don't have him.

              Best option;

              A) Hamez --> Grealish

              B) Lewis --> Lamptey

              B would mean keeping Hamez and benching him.

              Should I do Vardy to Kane or Aguero?

              If yes which one? I have Son & Reguilon but no City cover.

                Kane

                Vardy.

                I took a risk with Aguero
                We will see
                I can see few goals vs Hammers scored, question is who?

                  I also feel the same but Kane record against Burnley is impressive while if Vardy is fit, his record against Arsenal also good.

              Hart, Doherty, Sanchez, Davies (C), Reguilon, Hojbjerg, Winks, Lamela, Bale, Lucas, Vinicius.

                Davies being used as a CB is interesting.

              How long are we all thinking Rodriguez will be out for then? Him and Richarlison missing for any length of time makes DCL look immediately less appealing.

                Ancelotti said he "thinks he's out" which tells me there's still a tiny chance and he'll probably be back next game

                Doherty has been a disaster in FPL this year. Taken two price drops on him and he'll be on the bench again after playing tonight.

                      Unfortunately I have KDB I need to get rid of too. If I don't get him out this week he's 100% gone next week. We bought him because Aurier is a car crash footballer and now he can't get a game in the prem.

                        Has such a knock on effect in other areas of your team. I had Werner instead of Kane for the first 4 weeks because of the 6M I had tied up in Doherty.

                        probably Targett, or you can risk it with Kilman.

                        For exactly 4.5?

                        Targett, Ayling, Dallas, Masuaku (just not next two), Ward, Webster, Taylor

                        In that order. I'm taking a punt on Kilman and hoping he keeps spot.

                            Mourinho seems to like him. Looking forward to seeing how he does tonight. He would be good on the left in a 343 but don't think Jose will go down that road.

                            Unless Reguilon get injured, then it's time to let go. It will be like this all season. Not a spurs fan.
