FPL injury updates on Vardy, Kane, Zaha, Mané and Alisson for Gameweek 23

Jamie Vardy (£10.0m) is in line to make his comeback from a hernia operation in Gameweek 23.

In his Friday press conference, Brendan Rodgers revealed the striker had recovered well following the procedure and, more importantly, was due to return in time to be involved against Wolves on Sunday afternoon.

“Jamie (Vardy) will be available for the weekend. It was just about trying to fit the operation in at the right time. He’s responded very well.” – Brendan Rodgers

Even though Vardy’s comeback could be viewed as something of a surprise opportunity, launching straight into signing the FPL forward for Gameweek 23 might be a little premature.

Ayoze Perez (£6.0m) and Kelechi Iheanacho (£5.6m) have filled in for Leicester’s number nine over the last three league matches and the latter earned particular praise on Friday afternoon.

“We don’t have to (start Vardy against Wolves). Iheanacho was terrific in his work-rate so he will be high on confidence. Jamie is so important, but the beauty is that we don’t need to rush him. Whether he starts or comes off the bench it’s a boost. It’s not a problem. It’s great that Kels has got his goal. He’s worked so hard. He worked very hard versus Palace but didn’t get his goal. You saw, for the second goal, it was a lovely turn. Having the availability of all the players is important.” – Brendan Rodgers

Fit-again Pereira already showing signs of last season's form

Meanwhile, Wilfred Ndidi (£4.8m) could also return against Wolves, although Rodgers still needs to assess him as he finalises his recovery from a hamstring tear.

“We’ll see with him over the next 24 hours, whether it’s worth the risk. He’s coming along very well. If not for the weekend, it will be for midweek.” – Brendan Rodgers

And the latest update on Timothy Castagne (£5.7m) suggests Ricardo Pereira (£5.9m) could be a useful asset for Fantasy managers in the coming weeks.

“The timeline was a couple of weeks on Castagne from that Leeds game. He’s responding well. We’ll see how he is over the next 10 days. Fofana is undergoing treatment. He would be between four and five weeks.” – Brendan Rodgers

Which FPL forward should we choose to replace Harry Kane?

There is less certainty about Harry Kane‘s (£11.0m) return though with Jose Mourinho in a cryptic mood once again during his post-match press conference on Thursday night.

“I think from all the guys injured, [Sergio] Reguilon, Dele Alli, [Giovani] Lo Celso, Harry Kane, I think the first one to be back will be Harry … So we have to fight with what we have, and against West Bromwich with Harry Kane, without Harry Kane, we have to go, we have to win that match.” – Jose Mourinho

Crystal Palace’s attacking potential for the coming Gameweeks has taken a nosedive with the latest injury update on Wilfried Zaha (£7.2m).

Roy Hodgson had to withdraw him against Newcastle and, three days later, has ruled him out of the trip to Leeds on Monday and he could be on the sidelines for some time.

Meanwhile, Hodgson now considers key centre-back James Tomkins (£4.5m) in the same category as Jeffrey Schlupp (£5.3m) as someone who is “much further away” from an immediate return.

Palace’s upcoming opponents Leeds will be without Rodrigo (£5.7m) and Ian Poveda-Ocampo (£4.3m) on Monday night with the duo set to be out for “weeks rather than days”.

Liverpool could have goalkeeper Alisson (£5.9m) back for their crunch clash with Manchester City although Jurgen Klopp still needs to assess Sadio Mané (£11.9m) and Fabinho (£5.4m), who have partially trained this week.

“[Alisson] feels much better, good enough to have an individual session today. Sadio [Mane] and [Fabinho] will be in parts of team training today, then we will see.” – Jurgen Klopp

Ben Davies (£5.0m) and Ozan Kabak (£5.0m) might be involved, with the latter now given his international clearance, but Klopp has highlighted how unprepared they pair are currently.

“In an ideal world, you have a few weeks to work together on defensive things. Ben [Davies] and Ozan had yesterday an analysis meeting and they trained.” – Jurgen Klopp

There were no new injury updates to come out of Pep Guardiola’s Friday press conference, only confirmation that Sergio Aguero (£10.3m), Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m) and Nathan Aké (£5.4m) are still on the sidelines with their respective issues.

David Moyes was also among the managers with very little to report before the weekend’s matches. He confirmed that his squad are “all fine” although added that Arthur Masuaku (£4.3m) is “hopefully only a month or so away” from a return. 

As has been the case for much of the last few weeks, Scott Parker confirmed on Thursday that he had no new injury worries ahead of facing West Ham in Gameweek 23.

Arsenal defence hit with injuries and bans ahead of facing Villa's attack

Arsenal are likely to field Alex Rúnarsson (£4.4m) against Aston Villa in light of Mat Ryan‘s (£4.2m) recent injury and Bernd Leno‘s (£5.0m) suspension.

“He’s not been available to train yet and Alex (Runarsson) is available so we will have a choice to make for the weekend.” – Mikel Arteta

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.3m) might have to wait for his first start since returning from having to deal with some personal issues, while Kieran Tierney (£5.3m) still requires assessment for his calf problem.

“Well (Aubameyang) is available, he played a few minutes after 10 days of not doing much and hopefully in the next two days he feels good and he is available to contribute to the team. “It’s a different injury in (Tierney’s) case. Kieran is a player that really pushes himself. We are trying to manage him in the best possible way and find every possibility to give him the best chance to be fit as soon as possible.” – Mikel Arteta

Manchester United are only concerned with two individuals ahead of their Saturday-evening meeting with Everton.

Edinson Cavani (£7.9m) took a knock to the ankle midweek while Eric Bally (£4.9m) is, not for the first time in 2021, a doubt to face the Toffees.

“Edinson [Cavani] should be available, yeah definitely. He got a bad ankle knock there. Eric [Bailly] is a doubt. Apart from that, everyone is raring to go.” – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Whether Cavani or Anthony Martial (£8.7m) leads the Manchester United line, they will almost certainly face Robin Olsen (£4.5m) in the Everton goal as Jordan Pickford (£4.8m) is ruled out once again.

“We have out for this game Pickford, he is not recovered yet. We have out Allan, who started training with the team training. We have out Gbamin, who is following his individual programme.” – Carlo Ancelotti

FPL Gameweek 9 team news so far: Updates on Pulisic, Chilwell, Havertz and more

There has not been enough time for Thomas Tuchel to provide a proper update on Thiago Silva (£5.6m), who was forced off against Spurs.

Speaking in his post-match press conference on Thursday night, which doubled as a pre-match media commitment ahead of facing Sheffield United, the Chelsea manager could only offer a preliminary assessment.

“It is too early to give a diagnosis because I just saw him very quickly in the dressing room with a big strap around his muscle. We will have to wait until tomorrow… but I think for Sunday he is a big doubt. I don’t think that he can play.” – Thomas Tuchel

Jamal Lewis (£4.2m), Jamaal Lascelles (£4.2m), Federico Fernández (£4.7m) are on Steve Bruce’s mind as Newcastle prepare to host a beleaguered Southampton outfit.

“We’ve got a worry to our left-back, Jamal Lewis has got a hamstring problem. We’re hoping Jamal will make it but we’ve still got the likes of Matt Ritchie who can fill in there.”

Meanwhile, Paul Dummett (£4.4m) is “still struggling” and Ciaran Clark‘s (£4.5m) partner has gone into labour, although the Magpies manager is hopeful he will be involved against the Saints. New loan signing Joe Willock (£4.7m) is sure to feature though.

“He’s only trained with us two or three days but he will be involved. He’s a little bit different to what we’ve got, he wants to get forward and score a goal. He’s got the ability to get up and down the pitch.” – Steve Bruce

Ralph Hasenhüttl is in serious need of a pick-up after Wednesday’s 9-0 drubbing at Old Trafford and he might just get it this weekend.

Jannik Vestergaard (£4.7m) has been absent since Gameweek 14 but was described as a “maybe” for Saturday’s trip to Newcastle while Jan Bednarek‘s (£4.9m) red card and resulting one-match ban was overturned earlier this week.

The Saints manager also revealed Oriol Romeu (£4.5m) had returned to training and that Kyle Walker-Peters (£4.7m) might be ready in time to travel north, although Stuart Armstrong (£5.5m) was ruled out.

Charlie Taylor (£4.5m), Josh Brownhill (£4.9m), Ashley Barnes (£6.0m), Chris Wood (£6.2m) and Robbie Brady (£5.0m) are all possibilities to feature for Burnley as Brighton come to Turf Moor.

Meanwhile, Seagulls manager Graham Potter confirmed Solly March (£5.0m) would miss out on Saturday but had better news on Joël Veltman (£4.3m) and Alexis Mac Allister (£5.3m).

“We’re hopeful for Joël Veltman and Alexis Mac Allister, but that’s all it is at the moment – just hopeful.” – Graham Potter

Chris Wilder was a little more obliging than usual in his pre-match press conference ahead of facing Chelsea.

Ben Osborn (£4.7m) has been confirmed as fit and available while the Sheffield United manager is hopeful on Enda Stevens‘ (£5.0m) chances of featuring.

Still, true to form, Wilder also said that a few of his players were “touch and go”, which could include George Baldock (£4.9m), who picked up a knock in Gameweek 22.

The Blades will, of course, face Chelsea without Ethan Ampadu (£4.3m) as the defender is ineligible to face his parent club.

After several weeks of providing us with useful injury updates, Nuno Espirito Santo was back to his taciturn self ahead of Sunday’s meeting with Leicester.

He revealed that Wolves had some “problems” but that tomorrow would be a better day for knowing more. A conveniently timed press conference indeed!

      Double up on City defense or play Holding (avl) instead of Stones?

      1. PascalCygan
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 15 days ago

        Got a similar choice and think I’ll bench Stones but start Cancelo because of his attacking potential

        1. DonBenzema
            8 months, 15 days ago

            I own Dias and would feel weird hoping for a City clean sheet with Stones on the bench

        2. EmreCan Hustle
          • 9 Years
          8 months, 15 days ago

          Stones

      2. PascalCygan
        • 3 Years
        8 months, 15 days ago

        Would appreciate some feedback on this please.

        Holding to Mee for free?

        Using 1FT and saving the other with 24/25 doubles (and hoping to find out more about 26 onwards) in mind.

        2FT 4.9ITB

        Martinez
        Cancelo Coufal Justin
        Son Salah Bruno Gundo Soucek

        Please, I need help.
        Who can I Soucek transfer in for?
        Or save FT?
        1FT, 0.4m itb.

        Martinez
        Cresswell, Dallas, Justin
        Gündo, Sterling, Bruno (c), Salah, Grealish
        Antonio, Bamford

        Steer, Cancelo, DCL, Mitch

        1. Il Capitano
          • 1 Year
          8 months, 15 days ago

          Can't have them all, save FT

          1. bigmacs
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            8 months, 15 days ago

            That's the problem

            1. Pep bites Kun
              • 5 Years
              8 months, 15 days ago

              You can only play 11 and you've got Cancelo on the bench. Who's your weakest mid iyo - do you want Soucek over that player for this week and the next 1-2?

      4. Il Capitano
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 15 days ago

        1FT 4.5m ITB

        McCarthy
        Coufal Cancelo Justin
        Soucek Salah Son Gundogan Bruno
        Bamford Antonio

        Johnstone - Adams Lowton Stones

        Think I've settled on the starting XI and going to roll the transfer, just need to pick a captain. Cap Bruno or Antonio?

        1. PascalCygan
          • 3 Years
          8 months, 15 days ago

          I’ve got it on Son and Bruno VC, and own Antonio. Undecided but would probably go for Bruno out of those two

          1. Il Capitano
            • 1 Year
            8 months, 15 days ago

            Thanks. Son was a lock for me, but Spurs don't inspire any confidence atm. Think I'll end up on Bruno come deadline, as Antonio (C) means effectively 4x WHU this week, maybe too risky.

            1. PascalCygan
              • 3 Years
              8 months, 15 days ago

              Good thinking. I know this isn’t exactly a statistical insight but captaining Bruno just feels good too!

              1. Il Capitano
                • 1 Year
                8 months, 15 days ago

                The fact that he hauled in the reverse fixture is promising too

        Everyone getting excited about Minamino. I know he is talented, but performances have been average.

        What's the reason for the hype? OOP?

        1. Maximus Bonimus Pointimus

            I saw a lot of posts about him in the previous page. I hope not.

        Real bench headache here! Any help appreciated.

        Was tempted to bench Salah, is that mad?

        Martinez
        Rudiger | Cresswell | Cancelo
        Grealish | Gundog | Salah | Fernandes
        Bamford | Antonio | DCL

        Bench: Leno, Stones, Justin, H. Barnes

        1. EmreCan Hustle
          • 9 Years
          8 months, 15 days ago

          I would play Barnes ahead of DCL personally.

      8. GE
        • 5 Years
        8 months, 15 days ago

        1) Targett -> Mee
        2) Soucek -> Grealish
        3) Other suggestions?

        (2FT, 3.3 itb)

        Martinez
        Cancelo/Dias/Digne
        Salah/Bruno/Son/Gundo/Soucek
        Antonio/Bamford

        Bench: Messlier, DCL, Dallas, Targett

      9. George James
        • 6 Years
        8 months, 15 days ago

        Best move for this lot?

        A) Burke >> Lingard
        B) Wilson >> Antonio
        C) Robertson >> Mee / Dallas
        D) Roll FT and play DCL

        Martinez
        Coufal / James / Cancelo

        Two matches and two ckeansheets without him - is Chilwell out of the team.

        I would prefer to roll a transfer this week and have a better plan in place for the dwg, especially as Chelsea could easily keep a cleanhseet against sheff

        Benching order gtg?

        Stones, Dias, Coufal (Digne, Holding)

        1. PascalCygan
          • 3 Years

          I’m going with one City defender and benching the other (Stones) but they could easily keep out Liverpool, so seems a fair order

        I'm chasing over 100 points, need to switch up Foden. The easy move would be Gudogan, but tempted to punt on either Eze or Lingard, but feel like it could be a silly move.. any suggestions?

        Play 3 of these:

        2) Dias (Liverpool away)
        3) Dallas (Palace home)
        4) Mee (Brighton home)

        Amazing how butthurt Arsenal fans are on social media about Luiz' RC. As a fan, myself, I'd like you all to know that I agree(d) with all decisions incliding the repeal of Bednarek's RC, and find it a little embarrassing how blind Arteta and Arsenal have been (or acted) as well as how much protection Luiz is offered - the main criticism being him roaming forward, with little to no criticism for, yet again, putting his body, limbs and all, clumsily in a place that was likely to foul the opponent instead of either (i) not, or (ii) going for the ball.

        Why don't managers and players know the rules? They may be fuzzy at times but the manual isn't as thick as the intro to F1 pamplet, and in the sport of F1, the companies expend a lot of resources on learning and exploting the rules. Why do football managers play according to some boring, blanket, personal fantasy o the game they have in their own heads?

        1. EmreCan Hustle

          I got a lot of stick from my fellow Arsenal fans when I said something similar.

        Now be a good time to bring in Pope?(v Brighton)

        Play him instead of Martinez v Arsenal?

          I did exactly this, snd they dovetail brilliantly through the next 7/8 weeks

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Yes. How about Pope instead of McCarthy vs Newcastle?

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years

                8 months, 15 days ago

                Pope at home and Southampton west to Newcastle who have started netting, I think Wilson nets twice.

      19. Big Mac 24
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 15 days ago

        Salah will score the only goal in a 1-0 win for Liverpool on Sunday evening, finish with 11 pts and we can all enjoy the Super Bowl later on that night safe in the knowledge that the title race isn’t over again by early February.

          As long as its after Cancelo sub off at 70 mins that's cool

              I’m captaining Mo and playing cancelo, have no problem with a Gundogan pen miss

          Title race is ove imo. The squad strength of City is decisive. If Chelsea had got Tuchel before Christmas it might have been interesting. Klopp worried about top 4.

          I'll enjoy the Super Bowl regardless of how Salah scores. It's TB12, the GOAT, vs. Mahomes, the heir. This is gonna be a gunslinging battle!

          1. Big Mac 24
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            8 months, 15 days ago

            Should be fun indeed!

            So who would you captain, TB, Salah or Mahomes?

            1. teneighty
              • 6 Years
              8 months, 15 days ago

              On current form it has to be Mahomes.

      20. tabby98

        Pope
        Coufal, Cancelo, Justin
        Bruno, Salah, Son, Soucek, Raphinha
        Antonio (C), Bamford

        Johnstone | DCL, Digne, Stones

        GTG??

          That’s exactly what I’m doing.

          Martinez & Gundogan over Johnstone and Soucek out only differences.

          You can’t bench Cresswell surely. What’s your defence?

          1. hylander37
            • 11 Years
            8 months, 15 days ago

            Dias,AWB, Dallas & Cresswell?

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 7 Years
              8 months, 15 days ago

              I’d bench Dias. Cresswell is your best defender imo

      22. Dybala10
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        8 months, 15 days ago

        DCL being benched because Carlo hinted at more rotation?

        Or just too many good options this week and United improving defensively?

      23. DAZZ
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        8 months, 15 days ago

        Antonio is a tremedous captaincy option this week. All of his stats are pointing in the right direction. They’re similar to those he has before his mega norwich haul.

        1. Deulofail
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 15 days ago

          I haven't watched him play or looked at stats. I just trust him.

          1. DAZZ
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            8 months, 15 days ago

            Check it out if you’re interested, they’re tremendous, i’m finding it hard to not give him the band. Also West Ham are bang in form.

            1. Deulofail
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 5 Years

              Not interested. Captaining him regardless. 🙂

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years

          He normally tears teams a new one but doesn't get the returns he should. Painful watch thinking what could have been.
