Klopp’s update on Liverpool centre-back situation and other FPL team news

Fantasy Premier League managers may be considering late transfers in their Double Gameweek 19 teams after Pep Guardiola talked about the competition for places in his Manchester City squad

Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp also said one of his centre-halves could make a timely return for their key match with Manchester United.

Find out the latest injury and team news news in this Double Gameweek 19 round-up.

Manchester City

Pep first confirmed Aymeric Laporte (£6.0m), Nathan Aké (£5.4m) and Sergio Aguero (£10.3m) are all ruled out for Man City ahead of Crystal Palace’s visit to the Etihad.

“Today is (a day) off, tomorrow is training session. I’d love to update you. Eric (Garcia) will be back, the guys from the academy will be back. Aymeric (Laporte) and Nathan (Aké) won’t be fit. Sergio Aguero won’t be either.”

Pep Guardiola

Eric Garcia (£4.7m) returns to offer Guardiola another option at centre-half, though the Spaniard will likely have to settle for a place on the bench.

The City manager also had some words of warning for Joao Cancelo (£5.8m) owners.

Signing Cancelo a week before fixture swing can give FPL owners the edge

“Every player has competition with his team-mates. Even the manager, if we’re not playing good I have competition. To get the best out of ourselves, we have to feel our seat is not safe. Even Joao Cancelo.”

Pep Guardiola

And on Raheem Sterling (£11.4m), the City chief added:

“He’s an incredibly important player for us. Without him what we have done in the past wouldn’t be possible. In all departments he can help us. I’m more than delighted he is with us.”

Pep Guardiola

Liverpool

Joel Matip (£5.4m) could return for the top-of-the-table clash with Man United, Jurgen Klopp confirmed.

“Joel Matip is close. Does it make sense now to throw him in after one or two sessions he’s not done yet? I don’t know. We have to see how he looks in training.”

Jurgen Klopp

Asked if Jordan Henderson (£5.4m) could deputise once more at centre-half should Matip not return, Klopp responded:

“We have still different solutions. Hendo is, for us, very important in midfield, as well. We just have to see. It’s not decided yet. Why should I?”

Jurgen Klopp

One player that will definitely not feature at Anfield is Naby Keita (£5.2m).

“Naby is not ready for involvement. Not a big thing. But it’s a bit like when other players have come back from injuries they have to play and little injury again. Now we have to put on the brakes and settle it properly.”

Jurgen Klopp

Manchester United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was coy as ever in his pre-Liverpool briefing, with Anthony Martial (£8.8m) owners set to sweat ahead of Sunday’s kick-off.

“I will give everyone tomorrow to prove their fitness. There are a couple of knocks we got at Burnley that I’m not sure about. I am going to give everyone a chance. Anthony Martial is not out of it. Only ones certainly out are Brandon Williams and Phil Jones. They are the two who definitely can’t make the game. Others, maybe doubts, but fingers crossed.”

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Tottenham Hotspur

Steven Bergwijn (£7.0m) should be available for Spurs after illness, while Giovanni Lo Celso (£6.9m) remains out.

“Gio [Lo Celso] is not [available]. We still have two training sessions before the game but I believe no more problems in principle.”

Jose Mourinho

Jose also provided this update on Gareth Bale (£9.3m).

“He arrived injured for the first month and the Europa League group phase is a different intensity, so in the Premier League didn’t play a lot of minutes. Then an injury against Stoke where he was having a good first half. Not an easy process.”

Jose Mourinho

West Ham

David Moyes, frustratingly, did not provide a specific update on Michail Antonio (£6.2m) in his pre-match press conference.

The West Ham boss did offer information on Fabian Balbuena (£4.4m) and Lukasz Fabianski (£5.1m), however.

“We’ve only had two players missing; Fabian Balbuena is isolating – he came in contact with somebody – but basically we’re just about okay. We’re waiting on Lukasz Fabianski to see how he is, we’re not sure yet and Arthur Masuaku’s probably a couple of months away from being involved again.”

David Moyes

Burnley

Charlie Taylor (£4.5m) owners may not get two games out of the Clarets defender in Double Gameweek 19.

“Charlie Taylor is a doubt, he is a maybe. Everyone else is fine. There are a couple searching for true fitness as in high-level Premier League fitness but the squad is coming back together now.”

Sean Dyche

Wolves

Nuno Espirito Santo delivered a surprisingly lengthy team news update ahead of West Brom’s visit to Molineux.

“Let’s see. We have Adama (Traoré) and (Willy) Boly coming and joining (training). Let’s see how they are for tomorrow. We still have Daniel out. We have work to do. Jonny, Podence, Marcal are out.”

Nuno Espirito Santo

On Pedro Neto (£6.0m), he added:

“He’s inside all the players we have to assess, realising we still have a lot in front of us. At the same time, Pedro is doing well, so we’ll decide. He had a big knock but is improving. Better today, and hopefully better tomorrow.”

Nuno Espirito Santo

A reversion to the tried-and-trusted back three could also be on the cards at Wolves.

“We (have) made big mistakes, especially in defence. We must be compact and from there can grow positives. We have to go back to our main foundation; a clean sheet.”

Nuno Espirito Santo

Sheffield United

Chris Wilder has injury issues, though exactly which players remains unclear. The Blades boss said:

“We’ve got a few out. I think we’ve got seven out for the weekend. We’re hopeful we’ll get a couple back but we might lose one and we’ve got a doubt about one.”

Chris Wilder

On striker Oli McBurnie (£5.6m), Wilder added:

“He’s working away – he’s been out on the grass today. Difficult one because of the nature of the injury. “Still got another day to go but he’s a doubt.”

Chris Wilder
Brewster not immediately drafted into Sheffield United starting line-up

Leicester

Jamie Vardy (£10.1m) and James Maddison (£7.1m) are available for the Foxes’ home clash with Southampton on Saturday.

Leicester play at the King Power again on Tuesday, hosting Chelsea in their second tie of Double Gameweek 19. On the pair, Brendan Rodgers said:

“Both those players are available. It wasn’t so much a rest [for the FA Cup]. They couldn’t play or if they did play, there was going to be a huge risk for them. They’ve had ongoing issues throughout the season unfortunately and [Stoke] was a game where we saw a window to get some medical work done with them knowing we’ve got other players who can play. That’s worked well for us. They’ve re-joined the group so they’ll be available this weekend.”

Brendan Rodgers

Ricardo Pereira (£5.9m) will not be rushed back into action again, having returned to team training.

“Cengiz Under should be back this weekend, Ricardo Pereira too. A bit like (Caglar) Söyüncü, it will be step by step. We don’t need to rush (Pereira), especially having him broken down before. He’s worked very hard and has gone through all of the tests. We are able to get him close to the squad now, and step by step (we are) getting him back.”

Brendan Rodgers

Dennis Praet (£5.2m), meanwhile, is set for an extended spell on the sidelines. Rodgers explained:

“Dennis will be out for up to three months, which is a huge blow for us. It was an awkward one, he overstretched. It was a tendon in the hamstring.”

Brendan Rodgers

Southampton

For the Saints, Ralph Hassenhuttl confirmed the news that Danny Ings (£8.3m) had tested positive for COVID-19 last week and will miss the trip to Leicester.

.

“We’ve had one positive test since the Liverpool game; Danny Ings. So he’s been out for the past 10 days. When you stick to the protocols, you minimise the risks and that’s what we’re continuing to do. I don’t know if Danny can come back [to training] tomorrow but it looks like he’s out for the weekend.”

Alex McCarthy (£4.7m) and Che Adams (£6.0m) are back in the Southampton fold, while Hasenhuttl has a mix of short and long-term injuries to deal with.

“Alex McCarthy and Che Adams have come back in, so they will both be available. [Nathan] Redmond, [Jannik] Vestergaard and [Moussa] Djenepo are all longer-term injuries. [Michael] Obafemi has had surgery and [Nathan] Tella has problems with his muscle. We have a few problems in the moment which gives me a bit of a headache.”

Ralph Hassenhuttl

Leeds

Marcelo Bielsa has suddenly got some strength in depth at centre-half, with Liam Cooper (£4.3m) and Diego Llorente (£4.4m) both passed fit by the Leeds boss.

“Diego Llorente, Tyler Roberts and Liam Cooper are all available. No (other players are unavailable), just Kalvin Phillips (suspended).”

Marcelo Bielsa

Owners of defenders Luke Ayling (£4.5m), Stuart Dallas (£4.8m) and Ezjgan Alioski (£4.5m) will be scanning the Leeds teamsheet on Saturday to see how Bielsa decides to set up his defence and midfield.

Brighton

Brighton boss Graham Potter has not faced the press but the club’s medical update ruled out Tariq Lamptey (£4.7m), Danny Welbeck (£5.5m), Adam Lallana (£6.2m), Alireza Jahanbakhsh (£5.4m), Aaron Connolly (£5.2m) and new signing Jakub Moder (£5.0m).

Fulham

Aleksandar Mitrovic (£5.5m) could return for Fulham after missing the midweek 1-1 draw at Spurs. Scott Parker said on Thursday:

“Aleksandar Mitrovic is possible to return for the weekend. He trained lightly today. Mario Lemina and Tom Cairney are not available at the moment. We’ll see where we are in the coming days. Tom has an issue with his knee.”

Scott Parker

Ruben Loftus-Cheek (£5.9m) is ineligible to face his parent club.

Chelsea

Chelsea should be set to welcome Reece James (£5.1m) back to action, after the right-back missed the club’s last two Premier League games.

Frank Lampard declined to name specific players in his team news update on Thursday, saying:

“We’re all good. N’Golo Kante is suspended but he’s back in training tomorrow. So we’re all good.”

Frank Lampard

Arsenal

Following the Gunners’ 0-0 draw at home to Crystal Palace on Thursday, Mikel Arteta said of the missing Kieran Tierney (£5.4m):

“I don’t know (if I’ll have him back for the next game). It depends on how he evolves. He’s going to have an MRI scan tomorrow and we’ll see how he is.”

On further injury news, Arteta added:

“[Pablo Mari] had a calf injury in training [on Wednesday]. I think he will miss a few matches. He’s another one we will lose but we’ve got Gabriel [Magalhaes] back after Cocid, which is good news, we’ve got Thomas [Partey] back as well. Let’s focus on the positives.”

Mikel Arteta

Newcastle

On team news, Steve Bruce told the media:

“Jamal Lewis could come back in. Jamaal Lascelles too. We’ve got a problem with Federico Fernandez. Allan Saint-Maximin is maybe training today or tomorrow, which is good news. But he’s been out for around seven weeks so we’ll have to monitor him. Fatigue is the biggest thing.”

Steve Bruce

Crystal Palace

Roy Hodgson used his press conference to praise his team’s latest defensive performances

On Palace’s trip to Arsenal, the manager stated:

“We were playing a team in excellent form and we go away with a deserved 0-0. I thought the game was end-to-end and we are happy we took something away from the game. Two clean sheets in a row now. If you don’t defend well, it is going to be hard to win games.”

Roy Hodgson

And Hodgson added on the visit to the Etihad:

“If they [Man City] are not conceding goals, they’re always likely to score with the quality of players they have to choose from. It’s going to be a very, very tough ask for us. Am I looking forward to going there? Well, not really, because I know it’s going to be a very hard ask for us. You have to show every bit as much discipline, energy and effort that we put into tonight’s game.”

Roy Hodgson

West Brom

Sam Allardyce did not provide anything in the way of team news during his press conference on Thursday.

    Everyone set on a bb, how many hits and what’s your bench?

    1. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Nope, no hits, no BB.

      Johnstone Holding KWP Brewster

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

      No hits, bench is Johnstone**, Holding, Dier, Anguissa**

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

        Other sgw players in my team will be Son, Kane, Saka, Bamford.

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

        BBing 2 Hits

        Bench = McCarthy/Bamford/Holding/Strujik

    3. Scots Gooner
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Most likely a minus 4.

      Bench of Martinez, Holding, Dier and Smith Rowe.

    4. kennethrhcp
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Not 100% yet... either -4 or -8

      Current bench is:
      JOHNSTONE, dallas, raphina, TAYLOR

      Will do taylor to stones

      Then maybe raphina to foden

    5. Steve The Spud
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 6 days ago

      no hits

      flappy, Bamford, holding, Smith Rowe

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

      Genuinely looking at a -16 at the moment - with the below set up (transfers in CAPS)

      Martinez (JOHNSTONE)
      Dias-Chilwell-Coufal (Holding, Dallas)
      Salah-KDB-Grealish-Bruno-SOUCEK
      ANTONIO-WATKINS (Bamford)

      A definite big roll of the dice but I'm quite excited by the prospect. Think Aston Villa could score big against Newcastle.

    7. Ginola14
      • 9 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Taken a -8 to get
      Mart / ederson
      Stones / reg / alioski / robo / cress
      Salah / son / jack / saka / raf
      Kane / antonio / bam
      Mo C

    8. Yes Ndidi
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 6 days ago

      -4 McCarthy Deco-Reid Justin Lowton

      Really toying with another hit for Flappy, but theres too many doubts at the moment.

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

    Last move I'm looking at

    Kane > Vardy for free, no son and no value in kane

    Yay or Nay?

    1. Kudo Warrior
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Yay

      1. Kudo Warrior
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        He means he has none to lose...

        1. Steve The Spud
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 6 days ago

          haha cheers, I've asked this a few times and it seems really 50/50, not much in the stats either, kane has been good away but that includes the freak games against saints and Utd

    2. BoomXhakaLaca1
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      No value in Kane? He has 11G 11A this season

      1. Kudo Warrior
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        See above reply fail.

        1. BoomXhakaLaca1
          • 8 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          Still go nay

          1. Kudo Warrior
            • 7 Years
            3 months, 6 days ago

            I mean I have Kane and Son and am not moving them as I have tied up value, but as a punt Vardy playing twice is decent.

    3. FPL_Motty
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Yeah

  3. iL PiStOlErO
    • 1 Year
    3 months, 6 days ago

    Would you BB this?

    McCharty (lei)
    Dallas (BHA)
    Romeu (lei)
    Lowton (whu,liv)

    Team was all set for this week and not sure, not the best bench but at least I have it and I would love to get rid of them soon.

    1. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      No

  4. The Red Devil
    • 6 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    TC kdb/Salah or keep for later?

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

      KDB

    2. The Yorkshire Pirlo
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Thinking the same on KDB

    3. Super Saints
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Keep for later, COVID, form, KDB exhausted

    4. Kudo Warrior
      • 7 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Either keep or put on a well rested Salah.

      KDB looked DEAD towards the final 3rd of the last game.

    5. Aztec Kamara
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      I'm BB, but would TC KDB if I wasn't.

    6. FPL_Motty
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Not good enough reasons / form / fixtures for either to justify

  5. The Yorkshire Pirlo
    • 4 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    G2G? Use TC?

    Martinez
    Robbo/Cancelo/Coufal
    Salah/KDB/Bruno/Soucek/Saka
    Vardy/Bamford

    Steer/Dallas/Taylor/Davis

  6. Saosin
    • 7 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    Feeling stuck and need some advice.

    1FT 0.2 ITB.

    Mccarthy - Forster
    Cancelo - Justin - Bednarek - Coufal
    Salah - Bruno - Son - Soucek - Alzate
    Kane - Vardy - Bamford

    Any suggestions?

    1. Avery
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Are you playing any chips? What's the 15th player?

      1. Saosin
        • 7 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        15th Ferguson... Played BB last GW and would like to avoid WC.

        1. Avery
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 6 days ago

          Would be nice to maybe see a second city player with their fixtures - consider Bednarek to Stones with SOU having just the one game? Or Bednarek to Ogbonna?

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

      Play coufal cancelo and Justin. Move kane and son to Antonio/ Watkins and KdB. Sorted. If you want kane back next week move vardy for him. Dont play BB

  7. Aztec Kamara
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    What would you do with Martial?
    (Kindly refrain from sarcastic replies)
    He's not definitely out, but not definitely in either.
    With 1FT I could take shift him to Cavani or Antonio, or take a -4 and shift
    A) Hold in case he plays (and should play the 2nd game anyway)
    B) Use FT to shift to Antonio or Cavani
    C) Take a -4 to shift to Antonio or Cavani AND upgrade Holding to Robertson (or any other DF)

    Thanks in advance for your opinions!

    1. Aztec Kamara
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Ignore the 4th line... editing fail.

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

      Just hold mate. Even if he misses Liverpool its not the better game. I dont think he's worth a -4 to take out. He played well against Burnley and should have got more

      1. Aztec Kamara
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 6 days ago

        Thanks. I could take him out without a hit (1FT) but could equally use that more effectively elsewhere to change a single GW player to a double.

  8. pundit of punts
    • 8 Years
    3 months, 6 days ago

    Should be interesting to see the points total of BGW 18 and DGW 19 for mangers who did -

    1. FH 18 BB 19
    2. FH 18 TC 19
    3. FH 18 no chip 19
    4. No chip 18 no chip 19
    5. No chip 18 FH 19
    6. No chip 18 TC 19
    7. No chip 18 BB 19

  9. fn.jota
      3 months, 6 days ago

      Should i TC KDB? I have all chips reserved for later, WC GW25, BB DGW26, FH BGW29

      i mean maybe city will destroy palace weak defence and aston villa is big doubt because of covid

      1. fn.jota
          3 months, 6 days ago

          by big doubt i dont mean the game is gonna be cancelled, just they are weakened

          Palace defense ain't week

              WBA and Leeds FYI

          • 10 Years
          3 months, 6 days ago

          I am tempted. There’s a chance of KdB getting rested. Pep said he was too fatigued to take the pen in the last game...

          1. fn.jota
              3 months, 6 days ago

              Im concerned about his fatigue, but these 2 games are very important for city and KDB as been rest in cup games and some european games

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

            Doesnt make sense. Palace just kept 2 clean sheets, kdb too tired to even take a pen and 2x fast turnaround games. Villa are also no joke and have one of the best defensive records. Thats more than enough doubt for using TC. Not like there won't be any other random doubles in the future?

            1. fn.jota
                3 months, 6 days ago

                I got your point, but my biggest concern is still fatigue and not palace. palace kept cleansheet against sheffield and arsenal, so i think u cant read much there. im not sayin palace are the weakest defense but they are in top5 of weakest defenses

            Which option is better :
            A : Balbuena, Adams and Son to Chilwell, Grealish and Antonio (-8)
            B: Balbuena and Adams to Antonio and Pieters (4.3 itb) (-4)

            2 questions for your mental stimulation:

            1. Moving forward (not just for GW19), would you prefer:

            A) Chilwell + Brewster (fodder)
            B) Antonio + Mitchell (fodder)

            2. Play 2:

            B) Saka (NEW)
            C) Smith Rowe (NEW)
            D) Bamford (BHA)

            FH team check last time before bed. I’m getting cold feet. 😀

            Alisson
            Stones - Ogbonna - Coufal - Dawson
            Salah (c) - KDB (vc) - Bruno - Foden
            Vardy - Werner

            Good luck all.

              Looks solid.

              A few differentials there.

              Werner is an interesting pick. Maybe Ziyech can turn Chelsea's fortunes around.

              Sorry not a fan. Allison isn't the best Liverpool defensive route, Robbo much better for chance of assist. Werner is just awful and a total punt. Dawson isn't nailed as balbuena is back and maybe plays 1 to give him a rest. The rest is decent but you can do alot more by ditching werner. Such as robbo / fabianski in goal / soucek. Probably also probably 2nd city def better

            Bench boost?
            Just play this 11?
            McCarthy + Son > Martinez + Grealish/Ziyech/Pulisic for -8?
            Son > Rashford for -4?

            Son Kane to KDB Werner ?
            Have no value in both

            1. BradtheLAD
              • 7 Years

              Good moves imo

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 6 days ago

              I'd get KDB but maybe keep a Spurs. SHU have lots of change impact as per the twitter feed on the site. To me that one game is more favourable than Werner for 2 games with his form. I'd do Kane to KDB and keep son.

              1. DagheMunegu
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                3 months, 6 days ago

                Can't do that without taking a hit

          14. Moves Like Agger
            • 10 Years
            3 months, 6 days ago

            Is it worth -8 to do Kane, Wilson & Balbuena to Vardy, Antonio, Stones?

            1. Avery
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 1 Year
              3 months, 6 days ago

              Kane 1 game, Wilson now has 2, and Balbs is out. It's a close one to make the -8 worth it, but I think it just scrapes by as ok.

            How many DGWs in your team makes a BB worthwhile?

            Only all 15?

            1. Henning
              • 6 Years
              3 months, 6 days ago

              I aiming for 12 + Son Bamford and Dallas.

            2. Kudo Warrior
              • 7 Years
              3 months, 6 days ago

              I'd think of it as how many bench players have good fixtures and potential for returns. Doesnt need to be a DGW player.

          16. DickFranDyke

          17. ludaslol
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 6 days ago

            A) Balbuena > Stones and bench Raphina and Adams.
            B) Balbuena, Steer, Fergesson > Stones, Johnstone, Lowton -8 and play BB

            Martinez
            Robbo Chillwell Coufal
            Raphina Son Salah Bruno Soucek
            Werner Bamford

            Steer, Adams, Raphina, Fergesson

          18. Traction Engine Foot
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 6 days ago

            Can't decide on a goalkeeper, which option looks best?

            A Play McCarthy
            B McCarthy to Ederson -4
            C McCarthy to Martinez -4
            D Martin to Fabianski -4, bench McCarthy
            E Martin to Martinez -4, bench McCarthy

          19. sentz05

            Someone talk me out of doing Meslier out for Ederson.

              • 1 Year
              3 months, 6 days ago

              It's a trap! If you have to pick someone keep the cost down and invest elsewhere. Is Meslier your primary keeper? Consider Martinez? Villa good fixtures after DGW.

            • 3 Years

            How many points for these two you expect against Leicester?
