FPL Gameweek 9 team news: Injury updates on Sterling, Salah, Aguero and Rashford

The second part of our Gameweek 9 team news summary rounds up the headline updates and quotes from Friday’s pre-match press conferences, including the latest on Mohamed Salah (£12.3m).

We’ve now heard from all 20 Premier League managers ahead of Saturday’s Fantasy Premier League deadline, with some questions over player fitness cleared up and plenty more left unanswered.

The head coaches of Aston Villa, Brighton and Hove Albion, Burnley, Chelsea, Crystal Palace and West Bromwich Albion all held their official pre-Gameweek 9 pressers on Thursday and you can read the stand-out injury news in a separate round-up here.

Our YouTube and podcast team news summary is available towards the bottom of this piece, while our Team News tab will be refreshed over the coming hours and provide even more detail on what we offer here.

LIVERPOOL

Mohamed Salah will miss the visit of Leicester City this weekend but it’s still unknown whether the Egyptian will be back to face Brighton and Hove Albion in Gameweek 10.

Salah tested positive for coronavirus a week ago and is over halfway through the mandatory 10-day period of self-isolation.

Only when he returns a negative test can he think about a comeback to training, however, with Jurgen Klopp telling the media on Friday:

He is probably back [in Liverpool] today. When you have a negative test, the process really starts. He is in a good place, feels well, no symptoms, so that’s all fine.

The Reds are decimated by injury elsewhere, with Virgil van Dijk (knee), Joe Gomez (knee), Trent Alexander-Arnold (calf), Jordan Henderson (muscle) and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (knee) all definite absentees for the clash with Leicester City.

There may be better news on Fabinho (muscle) and Thiago (knock), at least, with Klopp saying:

Hendo, not, Trent not – that’s clear. All the rest (Fabinho, Thiago, Rhys Williams) we will see. They are all closer but we will see if it is close enough for the weekend.

MANCHESTER CITY

Pep Guardiola revealed that Sergio Aguero (muscle) has trained this week, while Raheem Sterling (calf) trained with the team for the first time today following his withdrawal from the England squad.

Fernandinho (stomach illness) and Nathan Ake (hamstring) are sidelined, however.

Guardiola said:

Except for Nathan and Fernandinho, the rest have started to come back.

Fernandinho is not fit. He has a little bit of gastroenteritis, something in his stomach. Sergio trained this week. Raheem, today, was the first training with the team.

MANCHESTER UNITED

Marcus Rashford (shoulder) was among the names mentioned by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in his team news bulletin today, with the Manchester United boss saying:

Luke Shaw, Jesse Lingard and Phil Jones are the only ones who didn’t join in parts of the training today. Bailly and Marcos Rojo joined the training today for the first time in a month at least, so they are not ready.

Marcus [Rashford] joined in the first time today. Hopefully there’s no reaction, I’m not sure.

Victor [Lindelof], we’ll have to check tomorrow because his back is not great.

There were more positive quotes on Rashford provided to the in-house media, with Solskjaer adding:

He’s worked in the gym and has got treatment. He joined in the session today and I hope he’ll hold his hand up and say he’s ready. That will be up to him. I think he feels okay.

On Mason Greenwood (illness), the United boss said:

Mason is fitter. He had eight or nine days away from us which is long time. He’s been training hard this week in the gym and on the grass. He’ll be back soon.

LEICESTER CITY

There are potential medium-term implications for James Justin with Brendan Rodgers confirming in today’s press conference that Timothy Castagne (hamstring) is back in contention for the Liverpool game on Sunday.

Ricardo Pereira (knee) is also back in training although, after eight months out, the Portugal international is still a little way off a first-team return and will first feature in a reserve game next week.

Wilfred Ndidi (adductor) and Caglar Soyuncu (adductor) are similarly training but remain a few weeks away.

EVERTON

Seamus Coleman (hamstring) and Jean-Phillipe Gbamin (Achilles) are Everton’s only confirmed absentees for the trip to Fulham, with Carlo Ancelotti providing some positive news on Richarlison and his returning South American contingent:

Gbamin is in the last part of his recovery, I think he will be here in 2-3 weeks to be ready to train and play. Coleman is not available for this game, the others are quite fit, good condition. [Delph, Allan and Richarlison] are all fit.

The players from South America came back yesterday. They were OK, they tested negative. They trained today; they are quite fit, a little bit tired from their travels, but we have time to recover for Sunday.

NEWCASTLE UNITED

Steve Bruce ruled Ryan Fraser (hamstring) out of the Chelsea game but says that Callum Wilson (hamstring) “has got a chance” of featuring.

Speaking on Friday, Bruce said:

Ryan won’t make it, unfortunately, but Callum has got a chance to. Obviously we’re going to make sure that if there’s any risk whatsoever, then he won’t play. But he has trained the last two days. It was very comfortable yesterday. We’ll see how he is today, but the boy wants to play.

We have to make sure he’s 100%, because the big problem for us all is the injuries – thankfully we’re getting a few back but it’s been a concern for all of us managers.

It might be a little bit early for Jonjo [Shelvey] but he’s trained two or three days. Matt Ritchie is another one who’s trained two or three days. That’s good news for us all, that they’re in and around the group again.

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR

Jose Mourinho confirmed that Son Heung-min has tested negative for COVID-19 after returning from international duty with South Korea so is available this weekend.

The Spurs boss also revealed that Steven Bergwijn is fit but Harry Winks has returned from international duty with a “little problem” and Erik Lamela (unspecified) is still in the final stages of his recovery.

WEST HAM UNITED

David Moyes revealed that Michail Antonio (hamstring) is “much closer” to a comeback after a return to training although stopped short of declaring him fit to play:

Michail is back training and we’ve got a couple of days yet to see how he is. The truth is I can’t give you a complete answer [as to whether he’ll be available on Sunday], but he’s getting much closer that’s for sure.

Angelo Ogbonna (groin) is expected to be fit.

LEEDS UNITED

Marcelo Bielsa says that Kalvin Phillips (shoulder) and Rodrigo Moreno (self-isolation) are back in contention this weekend, with the former more likely to start than the latter.

Pablo Hernandez (muscle), Jamie Shackleton (quad) and Diego Llorente (groin) remain out, however.

ARSENAL

Mohamed Elneny and Sead Kolasinac will both miss the trip to Leeds on Sunday after testing positive for COVID-19 while away with their countries, while Thomas Partey is also sidelined with the thigh problem that forced him off in Gameweek 8.

Asked about the minutes that Bukayo Saka has racked up for England over the international break, Mikel Arteta said:

Obviously, he’s a 19-year-old kid and he’s played a lot of football in the last few months and we have to protect him. Let’s see how he comes back and try to get him fit and recovered and see how he is for Sunday.

SOUTHAMPTON

James Ward-Prowse (hamstring) and Ryan Bertrand (hamstring) have been back in training and Ralph Hasenhuttl said the pair “should” be fit to feature against Wolves on Monday.

Danny Ings (knee) is making good progress but remains out.

Hasenhuttl said:

Everyone else [bar Ings] is in training in the moment. I haven’t seen everybody coming back from the internationals (Djenepo, Bednarek, Vestergaard, Armstrong). We have all the guys back today and it’s an advantage that we play on Monday.

WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS

Nuno Espirito Santo was typically non-committal on the injury front, saying only that Wolves have “some issues” to assess.

Santo did at least acknowledge “the situation of Conor Coady“, with the centre-half having self-isolated following contact with a person who tested positive for COVID-19.

The Wolves boss added that Saturday will be the first chance he has to gather all of his squad together.

SHEFFIELD UNITED

Chris Wilder said that Rhian Brewster (knock), Enda Stevens (knee) and John Egan (head) have “all got a chance” and will be given “the maximum time to recover” ahead of the visit of West Ham.

John Fleck is available while Lys Mousset (toe) has returned to training and could be an option.

Sander Berge is a “question mark” according to his manager, with the Blades awaiting instruction on whether the midfielder can take part this weekend due to quarantine rules in Norway.

FULHAM

Scott Parker revealed that his players came back from international duty unscathed and said of Mario Lemina (muscle):

He’s been training for the last week or ten days, so he’s a lot closer than what he was last time. Whether this game comes a bit quick, not sure.

      The question is, if you get DCL you won’t have the money to upgrade a mid to City or LIV

      Neto to Ziyech?

    Does anyone have their eye on Aguero? Normally a 20 goal a season striker.. if he gets gametime with those fixtures surely he will explode?

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Lots of questions mark. Keep an eye on him the situation

      1. jay01
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Kun at 10 mil with fulham at home could be unreal

    2. chelseabrad
      • 6 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Definitely capable but unsure if he can shake off these injuries and get back to top form

    3. Troll hunter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      I haven't seen him being himself this season so far. He has to pass the eye test first.

  5. ajk1211

    Is Cresswell worth the extra £ over Coufal?

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Yes, the next 6 will show

    2. Tango74

        I decide not as I have exact money ITB to get Salah back . Was thinking like you but not want to do a -4

    3. BenDavies
      • 8 Years

      Thanks for the write up as usual Neale. You going with Werner captain I assume, or bringing in Bruno for Salah?

      2. Bleh
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        I’m thinking C too. A is looking great for this week but not for many others short term.

        C if you don’t have city, or A if you have spare transfer to get city next week

    9. Bleh
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      As all my subs and Wilson are sidelined/doubtful/useless, does Salah > KDB (-4) seem like a good move this week to save Kane > Vardy on a FT next week?

      Planning on doing Son > Salah the following week.

      Martinez
      Lamptey, KWP, Lamptey, Chilwell
      Grealish, J. Rod, Son
      Kane, DCL, Wilson
      Subs: Steer, Salah, Mitchell, Stephens

      1. Stormbringer22
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Similar plan to mine. I am tempted by Kane to Kun instead of Vardy. Salah to KDB makes sense this week and Son to Salah to get him back. It's what I am doing as well.

        1. Bleh
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Thanks, yeah busy tinkering around with these lot. Kun could be a gem but Pep roulette scares me and Vardy’s fixtures are hard to ignored.

      What to do with this sorry lot?
      0,2 ITB, 1 FT, WC spent

        TAA->Chilwell and bench Justin.

    11. hogree
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      A) Coufal and Soucek
      B) Cresswell and Riedewald

      Which for your team?

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

        A

    12. Qaiss
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Think if Mane got covid, was 44% owned, and Salah could play and was 11% owned, alot of that 44% ownership would be transferring in Salah.

      Mane has gone quite under the radar it seems.

      1. Hybrid.power
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Yeah I'm considering Mane too

        1. Qaiss
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Im gonna captain him.

      2. The Red Devil
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Yeah coz Salah does far better in the absence of mane (check Salah PPG when mane not playing)
        But mane without Salah doesn't have that much of an improvement
        PS- do think he'll score one though, probably get 8 or so points

        1. Qaiss
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          I remember Mane doing pretty well last season when Salah wasn’t playing / fully at it, was in the first half of the season.

          1. The Red Devil
            • 5 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            Not saying he's a bad option at all
            Just comparing Salah (without mane) vs mane (without Salah)
            There's stats on this on Twitter, check it out

          2. Stormbringer22
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 6 days ago

            Correct. Everton game springs to mind. Problem with Mane is that he doesn't form part of many people's long term plans. So it takes another transfer down the line to do Mane back to Salah

            1. Qaiss
              • 5 Years
              2 months, 6 days ago

              Yeah perhaps. But I think for a few weeks, he could be a decent shout. Milner may play right back, so the appeal of Salah might be less. I think in the end, if you just keep one, they will get points for you no problem.

    13. LewanGOALski
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Salah - Son - Hamez - Grealish (Soucek)
      Kane - DCL - Watkins

      1 FT

      A) Salah ➡ Bruno / Ziyech now and Son ➡ KDB next week
      or
      B) Salah ➡ KDB and keep Son more long-term eventually re-asses him / Kane next week

      which option here is better...?

      1. Henrik Larsson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 6 days ago

        I'm in the same boat. I'm sticking with Salah and bringing in KDB for Son next week. I've got a feeling those banking on Bruno will be disappointed this weekend.

        Me. Haven't taken a hit at all this season yet, currently at 14k. Feel things have been too unpredictable and chaotic to justify taking points hits for players.

      8. aapoman
        • 7 Years

        no transfers yet. Might just bank it

      Yo!

      Any glaring errors on my WC team? Plan on getting Salah back in in a couple weeks time and have cash in the bank for it...

      McCarthy (Forster)
      Chilwell, Coufal, Kilman (Cancelo, Targett)
      KDB, Ziyech, Grealish, Fernandes (Riedewald)
      Watkins, DCL, Vardy

      Thanks!

      Will Rashford start 100%?

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        LR thinks so

      2. The Red Devil
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Should start imo
        I'd say 80-90%

      3. RocketMan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        I wouldnt say anyone is 100 with this covid around but he looks very likely and as likely as anyone from what I have read and heard

      4. Miguel Sanchez
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Not 100% but very likely to, I’m going for it and capping

      5. Phlajo
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 6 days ago

        80 I'd say

    21. RocketMan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      When do the clubs go through their covid test? I am looking at bringing in Soucek... am I good to pull the triger?

    22. Crunchie
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Can someone who knows tell me the answer. If salah id red flag does his value now drop?

      I was going to drop on Wednesday but waited until the final team news.

      It doesn't look good until Fulham????

      Will drop to KDB (but tempted to drop Son to Fernandes as well as his next three games doesn't look to bad. (still got Kane for one more week(at least)).

    23. lilmessipran

      Santo did at least acknowledge “the situation of Conor Coady“, with the centre-half having self-isolated following contact with a person who tested positive for COVID-19.

      What does this imply? Start possible since Wolves play on Monday night?

      1. Crunchie

    24. waltzingmatildas
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Who would you rather have this week?
      A) Kane
      B) vardy
      C) Werner

      1. Henrik Larsson
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 6 days ago

        B

      2. Sweetboi
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        C by a mile.

    25. jdp219
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      1) Ziyech + Vardy
      2) Mane + Bamford
      Either decision leaves little in the bank. But, without Mane, it's either 2FTs or a hit to bring back Salah.

      Rest of team, fwiw:
      McCarthy, Forster
      Chilwell, Cancelo, Targett, Justin, KWP
      Bruno, -----, KDB, Grealish, Soucek
      DCL, Watkins, -----

    26. GW9 Breakout Players
      Geoff
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 6 days ago

      Who do you think will find form and step up to score big this GW, and why?

      Maybe someone who hasn't had a double digit score in a while, has a series of no attacking returns, or has very low ownership.

      Have you seen something in someone's play or in their stats to make you think they could be ready for a breakout GW?

      1. RocketMan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Brewster... o .. wait ...

      2. Steve The Spud
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Semado to finally get an attacking return and a CS 12 pointer

      3. Crunchie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        PVA (unlucky against wolves for an assist to be ruled offside and then had a penalty ruled out for the same reason)

      4. OLEgend
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        PVA

      5. The Train Driver
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        The Liverpool player who'll be on penalties..

      6. Geoff
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        I don't think it'll necessarily be a huge score, but I think Willian gets one this game.

        Based on no data and no eye test, just a hunch.

      7. Polka Wakey O'Dot
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Quite a few.

        Aubameyang won’t be this bad all season.
        Barkley with some good stats but always been iffy for when they pay off.

        The one I’d like to do well is Antonio...not sure if he will play or not though.

        1. Geoff
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • Has Moderation Rights
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 6 days ago

          Yeah I get the feeling Antonio is on the bench

          1. Polka Wakey O'Dot
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            2 months, 6 days ago

            I think he’s a really good hard working player. 100% every time he plays.

            1. Geoff
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • Has Moderation Rights
              • 8 Years
              2 months, 6 days ago

              Totally agree

      8. Jealous Viper
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Raheem Sterling. Spurs looking a bit iffy on the right and think Sterling has a decent record against them iirc

      9. The Red Devil
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Richarlison

      10. El Estadístico
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 6 days ago

        George Baldock. His stats indicates that as SHU improves, he will step up to score big this gameweek. Imo, this could happen against the Hammers because they weren't convincing enough against Fulham last gameweek, and were lucky to steal all points of the match.

      11. keefyefc
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 6 days ago

        Aubameyang v a Leeds deference that has let in 8 goals in it's last 2 games .
        Would be an ideal one game punt for anyone who has Salah

      12. Jordan.

          • 11 Years

          and milner could be a great reserve for salah ,probably a 10 pointer if they get a penalty,hes hardly had a mention

      13. wulfranian
        • 4 Years

        McBurnie.I think it's time for Sheffield United to win.

      18. Pieterke30
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years

        Richarlison, Telles, Martial, Brewster.

      19. lugs
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 5 days ago

        Nketiah to score against his former club

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

      Werner will play but needs a rest, so bank transfer if you have Kane or move to Vardy
