Maddison and Grealish injury updates and Sunday’s FPL action reviewed

We round up the headline FPL talking points from Sunday’s matches in our whistle-stop review.

JACKED IN

Jack Grealish (£7.7m) was absent as Aston Villa succumbed to a 2-1 home defeat at the hands of Leicester City.

Rumours had swirled about the midfielder’s potential absence both before and after Friday’s Gameweek 25 deadline and there is still an element of mystery about how long the England international will be sidelined for, with the Athletic’s Gregg Evans reporting that Grealish will also miss next weekend’s match against Leeds United and the BBC’s Simon Stone going a step further and declaring (in a subsequently watered down article) that he may miss a month of action.

Interviewed after full-time, Villa boss Dean Smith expressed hope that Grealish could be back in time for Gameweek 26 – although did admit that he would have to be an “optimist” to think that:

Jack had some discomfort on Friday afternoon so we pulled him out of training, assessed him and didn’t think he was right for the game.

It’s not a re-occurrence of a longstanding injury or an old injury. It’s not going to be a long-term injury but I’ll be guided by the medical staff as to how long he’ll be out and Jack himself. I can’t tell you any more than that really.

Pretty much [a case of taking it game by game], yeah. If I’m an optimist maybe he’ll be back for Leeds or, if not, Sheffield United but I have to be guided by him and the medical staff and see how it is.

FPL managers aren’t hanging around either way, with Grealish the most-sold player of Gameweek 26 and already flogged by over 100,000 managers.

MADDISON ALL RIGHT?

Leicester City have their own injury concern as we prepare for the biggest Double Gameweek of the season.

James Maddison (£7.3m) continued his fine form on Sunday and opened the scoring at Villa Park – his 12th goal or assist in his last 14 appearances.

But the England midfielder hobbled from the field of play just after the hour-mark, having twice needed treatment from the visitors’ physios.

Brendan Rodgers said after full-time:

He had an issue with his hip last season. He just felt it when he was taking the corner so as a precaution we’ve taken him off and we’ll examine that over the next couple of days.

Harvey Barnes (£6.8m) is probably the biggest winner from the flags on fellow mid-price midfielders Grealish and Maddison: he is currently the most-bought asset of Gameweek 26.

Barnes recorded his second successive double-digit haul with a goal and an assist in the Foxes’ victory, which took his total to 10 attacking returns in 11 Gameweeks.

Ricardo Pereira (£5.9m) was intriguingly deployed ‘out of position’ in that win for the Foxes, lining up on the right of midfield ahead of Timothy Castagne (£5.7m) – although how much that selection was made with a plan to combat Grealish in mind is another question.

1-0 TO THE ARSENAL’S OPPONENTS

.

Ilkay Gundogan (£6.1m) made a swift return from injury at the Emirates this afternoon but couldn’t add to his season’s goal tally of 11.

The German started and finished the game in his now customary ‘number eight’ role but he, and City as a collective, never really clicked in an attacking sense in north London.

Not that Pep Guardiola’s side really needed to get out of second gear, with Arsenal failing to capitalise on some threatening positions in the final third and mustering only one shot on target in the entire game.

This was City’s 15th clean sheet of the season and their 13th in the last 16 Gameweeks.

Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m) made his first start on his return from injury as a ‘false nine’ and managed to look both classy and rusty before being hooked on the hour-mark, while the advanced Joao Cancelo (£6.1m) again saw plenty of penalty-box action and wasted a glorious chance to double City’s lead when toe-poking wide from 10 yards.

Raheem Sterling (£11.6m) was the visitors’ match-winner, nodding home Riyad Mahrez‘s (£8.1m) second-minute cross for his 13th attacking return in his last 14 league starts.

SON/ANTONIO/SPURS

Grealish absent through injury as Castagne returns for Leicester's trip to Villa 3

West Ham United defeated Tottenham Hotspur in the first Premier League game of the day, with Jesse Lingard (£5.9m) continuing his purple patch of form in east London.

Lingard’s goal was his fourth attacking return in as many appearances for the Hammers and turned out to be the match-winner, which secured him maximum bonus points and a double-digit haul.

Michail Antonio (£6.6m) was passed fit to play and marked his return with an early goal, although his comeback was ever-so-slightly tainted with a second-half booking.

Tomas Soucek (£5.3m) also picked up a yellow card en route to a one-pointer, with FPL’s most-owned defender, Aaron Cresswell (£5.8m), losing his clean sheet when Lucas Moura (£6.6m) nodded home Gareth Bale‘s (£9.3m) corner.

Soucek and Vladmir Coufal (£4.7m) were involved in separate collisions but recovered to finish the game.

Son Heung-min (£9.5m) and Harry Kane (£11.1m) both blanked but came within inches of a return: the former striking the woodwork late on with a freak, looping touch, with the latter seeing a potential assist go up in smoke in the process.

Kane had also teed the impressive Bale up for a second-half attempt that clipped the bar.

All in all, though, another underwhelming Spurs display (their fifth defeat in six) will leave some FPL managers pondering whether even Kane and Son are worth the outlay for the upcoming Double Gameweek.

BRU-NO WHO

“It’s not been his best game but…”

That line has regularly been used in conjunction with Bruno Fernandes‘ (£11.6m) name over the past few months and there was almost an inevitability on Sunday that, after an anonymous first half in which his most notable contribution was to pick up a booking, the Portuguese playmaker would still come good.

A slightly fortunate assist for Daniel James‘ (£6.2m) goal and a customary penalty brought up his 10th double-digit haul of the season and means that he has now racked up 307 FPL points in his 39 appearances for Manchester United.

Matching Fernandes on the day was Marcus Rashford (£9.6m), who won the aforementioned spot-kick after earlier firing United in front.

Anthony Martial (£8.7m) couldn’t take advantage of the injured Edinson Cavani’s (£7.9m) absence and turned in a poor showing, while United’s back four yet again conceded to a Premier League struggler – the bottom five teams in the division have all breached the Red Devils’ defence in 2020/21, with Allan Saint-Maximin (£5.1m) the latest to profit.

Luke Shaw‘s (£5.1m) owners may overlook those deficiencies so long as the left-back continues to create chances a furious rate – the defender was again top for key passes for his side on Sunday.

    most of us have 3 city players
    if you're not using the wc til gw30/31 would you just stick with the ones you already own?

    i've got dias stones sterling. was going to do to sterling to gund to fund kane but having second thoughts on this....

    will assess Ings first as I'd like to keep him as a differential

    1. waldo666

      Just stick, as soon as you swap one for another you know what generally happens. Different circumstances though, if you need to raise cash to better your team elsewhere it might be worth it.

      1. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        guess it comes down to Kane or no Kane!
        not willing to lose salah or bruno just yet

        1. waldo666
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          I would lean to no Kane, personally.

    2. HammersXI
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Might be better to keep and just face the roulette. Or maybe make a call after the UCL game

      1. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        fair shout
        i mean grealish to barnes is probably a higher priority
        so sterling to gund, rodrigo to kane would be for double hit

        perhaps I lose sterling for the next double with Kane facing Palace in gw27

        1. HammersXI
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Wait you still have Rodrigo in your team?

          U should wait till Spurs get their form before considering getting them. Burnley and Fulham are not easy fixtures.

          1. HMC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 18 days ago

            that's why i'm hesitant to go for spurs
            and yes had rodrigo since dgw19 for Leeds before their game got postponed...been playing 352 442 and didn't need the money so held him injured until now

            1. HammersXI
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              As a Leeds fan.... Rodrigo isn't gg to provide you much goals. So I would even look to remove him for Maja or someone in that price bracket.

              And yes, Spurs form is the reason why I'm hestitating on Kane and rather get KDB

              1. HMC
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 10 Years
                1 month, 18 days ago

                the extra hit is probably unnecessary and hoping I can navigate until wc, we'll see
                don't have FH or BB left

    3. The Units
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Yep been thinking about this as well. I have Stones, Cancelo and Gun but want Cancelo, Gun and Foden. Decided to leave it as is.

    4. Aster
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Keep

    5. Spg76
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Timothy Castagne. Anyone taking a look?

      1. Hy liverpool
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        I prefer perreira

      2. ...al
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Pereira for slightly more if you can

        Not a bad option if money is tight

    6. Ruinenlust
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Barnes or Son?

      Have Kane already

      1. Hy liverpool
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Son

      2. ...al
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Both for me

      3. Camino Aleatorio
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Have son- just got Barnes

        I don’t like the smell in Tottenham

        I had no Leicester coverage

      4. NATSTER
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        I feel both will be best.

        But, if i can have only one, I would choose Barnes for chasing rank and Son for protecting rank.

        1. Andy_Social
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Kane's irrelevant. Between Son and Barnes, I'd take Barnes. Foxes are looking super-competent right now whereas Spuds are in a Mou-slump.

    7. Jafooli
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      Foden not playing last night not good news for the DGWs is it?

      Means he almost certainly start in CL game, which puts him at a disadvantage for the DGWs...

      1. HammersXI
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Better to wait out after CL to see.

        Foden / Torres / Mahrez / Jesus will play some role in the DGWs most likely. I'm amazed that Bernando ended up the one being the most nailed.

        1. Jafooli
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Pep is a big fan of Silva...

          1. HammersXI
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 18 days ago

            Seems like Sterling also. 2 rest in 14 games. Bernando has played the last 11 games but came off at 59 mins twice

        2. Hy liverpool
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          He is freaking amazing tactical player.. CAM CM and you will find him RB when cancelo gets into midfield, his workrate monster...

          I hate him thou 😀

          1. HammersXI
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 18 days ago

            Don't see him as a FPL asset tho sadly.

      2. Hy liverpool
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        City have 4 games in two weeks.. CL game will only affect westham game.

        1. Jafooli
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Affect all surely, in terms of overall game time? I think they have 5 x games in two weeks (1 x CL & 4 x PL)

      3. Aster
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Not sure

      4. seewhyaxe
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Sterling owners, stick or twist?

        Feel like doing Sterling to Gundogan to save 5m

        1. HammersXI
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Wait till after CL

          1. seewhyaxe
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 18 days ago

            Yes definitely. Just feel like it's a wise move barring any injuries in CL.

            1. HammersXI
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              Yeah, I'm amazed people are making moves so early, Spurs have UEL alongside Leicester. City has UCL with Chelsea this week

              1. ...al
                • 11 Years
                1 month, 18 days ago

                The sheep control the market and they haven't got much sense

        2. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          see my post above
          was going to do it for Kane but not really loving the dgw fixtures
          with grealish injured, may delay this for Palace fixture in 27

        3. Camino Aleatorio
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Stereo owners are racking - people will avoid Stereo cause he is a detested player. He’s a good differential

          - I don’t own him, have salad. Like many players I detest Stereo

        4. Aster
            1 month, 18 days ago

            Stick

        5. HammersXI
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Is DCL worth an additional -4 over Watkins? (Over 2-3 weeks before 29)

          1. La Roja
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 18 days ago

            Yeah

            1. HammersXI
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              Thanks man! Am thinking whether to make a -4 for Watkins or -8 to fit DCL. Though a pice rise would KO the -8 move.

        6. Jafooli
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Was Villa alot less attacking without Grealish, as predicted? Or not much difference?

          1. Stupendous
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 18 days ago

            Crap yea
            They're nowt right now

            1 month, 18 days ago

            both sides had similar xG but leicester were comfortable in the second half letting villa come onto them, they didnt create any big chances of note besides the goal which was more of a defensive error

            1. Jafooli
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              El Ghazi not really a feasible option then?

              Better to consider Lookman?

              1. HammersXI
                • 8 Years
                1 month, 18 days ago

                Not really a good option. Would prefer M.Pereira for a punt

              2. zøphar
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 11 Years
                1 month, 18 days ago

                none of their midfielders are imo, Watkins if you must go there

        7. Stupendous
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          12 DGWs and Dallas Raph Bam is deffo a BB right?

          Can't see a better time and ALL my rivals have used theirs!

          1. HammersXI
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 18 days ago

            Yeah looks good tbh. Villa without Grealish might help us

            1. Stupendous
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              Reckon Leeds players might haul in that match!

              Stand alone week and Bamford or Raph could be armband options there

        8. Jafooli
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Can I realistically hope for 3 x games from Foden from the 4 x PL games over 2 x DGWs?

          1. HammersXI
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 18 days ago

            2.5 maybe. All depends on CL man

            1. Jafooli
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              Yeah, agreed & agreed

              1. HammersXI
                • 8 Years
                1 month, 18 days ago

                2.5 meaning he might come off very early in one of the 3 games.

                1. Jafooli
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  • 9 Years
                  1 month, 18 days ago

                  Yeah, agreed

            • 9 Years

            I’d say 2 or 3. KDB put spanner in works innit

              Good call on shipping him Roja....I'm left picking up the pieces 😀

                Pep Roulette. I got lucky this time. If he started it would’ve been a bloodbath

          3. Aster
              1 month, 18 days ago

              No

            any thoughts on this WC side, BB/TC used, FH available

            Martinez (Fabri)
            Dias Cancelo Shaw (White, Rudiger)
            Fernandes Salah Gundogan Son HBarnes
            DCL Kane (Brewster)

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              If on WC, good time to ship the deadwood that is Brewster?

              On saying that, with BB used, it does maximise your other 14, which looks superb

              I have very similar XI except for Kane, so I like it. I fancy Leicester defence over the next few weeks though

            Would you WC this lot? Have 1 FT

            Martinez
            Alonso Dallas Stones
            Son Salah Bruno Gundo
            Bamford Cavani Kane

            Forster Raphinha Coufal Pieters

            Thinking to this

            Martinez
            Shaw Cancelo Digne
            Sterlo Gundo Barnes Bruno
            Vardy DCL Kane

            Sanchez Raphinha Burn Dallas

                Crikey 0.1 short. Need to shave it off somewhere

              How many hits would you need to take to get the WC team?

              The WC team looks good tho

              1. La Roja
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 9 Years

                Too many lol

                1. HammersXI
                  • 8 Years
                  1 month, 18 days ago

                  then it's worth making the WC move. Though I might prefer KDB over Sterling

                  1. La Roja
                    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                    • 9 Years
                    1 month, 18 days ago

                    No way. KDB look well off the pace for me. Sterlo looks like he’s got a hatty in him very soon

                    1. HammersXI
                      • 8 Years
                      1 month, 18 days ago

                      Sterling always looks like he got a hatty coming. Then he realizes he can't finish. Like what we saw ytd. That's the frustrating thing owning him. KDB could have easily gotten 1/2 assists if his teammates could actually finish.

                      I could be bias since I removed Sterling 🙂

                        • 5 Years
                        1 month, 18 days ago

                        Would you not take a goal and a few big chances missed over 1/2 assists?

                        1. HammersXI
                          • 8 Years
                          1 month, 18 days ago

                          that's KDB when he is returning from injury. I don't want to imagine him when he's actually on form..

                          Sterling literally kills himself out of BAPS in most games.

                            Hmm I agree. I see Valid points both ways. I'm anyway on gundo stones and Cancelo so didn't get into the sterling Vs KdB dillema

            1. Guaita

            Bamford Raphinha Ings -> DCL Gundo Watkins for -8?

            1. HammersXI
              • 8 Years
              1 month, 18 days ago

              Are you FH in 29? Else removing 2 Leeds assets doesn't make much sense.

              Also Watkins play is questionable if / when grealish is ruled out

              1. Sanchit
                • 5 Years
                1 month, 18 days ago

                Yes. FH29.

                Which other striker would you recommend under 7.5?

                1. HammersXI
                  • 8 Years
                  1 month, 18 days ago

                  I would keep Ings if you are FH in 29 tho. I don't see much potential in Watkins if Grealish is ruled out. Maja maybe for a punt?

                  1. Sanchit
                    • 5 Years
                    1 month, 18 days ago

                    Yeah keeping Ings could turn out to be better specially as he has a DGW 27 too.
                    But I can't do the other 2 transfers keeping Ings ( have only 0.3 ITB)

                    Maja - don't really fancy a Fulham striker. The ceiling seems very low

                    1. HammersXI
                      • 8 Years
                      1 month, 18 days ago

                      Hmm I'm also replacing Ings and Raphinha sadly, but am moving away from getting Watkins

                      1. Sanchit

            C) keep Salah

                  • 5 Years

                  Yeah I suppose if either score I'll be feeling them more.
                  Ings has a double and some nice fixtures after but Bamford plays 29 also Bamford to Kane isnt as easy as Ings to Kane.

              Which to bring in...
              A) Kane
              B) DCL + Barnes -4

              To Kane or not to Kane is one of the toughest decisions this season

              How many points do you expect Matt Lowton to score in DGW26? Fixtures are Spurs (A) Leicester (H).

              A: 1-2
              B: 3-4

              Best move here chaps? Don’t have any Spurs but do have a few DGWers already:

              A) Ings -> DCL
              B) Sterling/Ings -> Son/Kane(TC) (-4)
              C) Wildcard

                  Yeah a lot of people are thinking of it. But this is form vs fixture argument all over again.

                  Starting to consider the Bruno possibility instead

              Which of the options below look best for a BB next week?

              Martinez.
              Shaw, Cancelo, Stones.
              Salah, Bruno, Son, Gundo, Raphinha.
              Ings, Watkins.
              Areola, Burn, Bamford, Dallas.
              2.8m ITB. Just BB left from the chips.

              1. Raphinha + Ings -> Barnes + DCL (-4). 0.5m ITB.
              2. Ings -> Kane 0.1m ITB. (Need to act quick on this one).
              3. Just Bamford -> DCL or Raphinha-> Barnes.
              4. Something else?

              Pereira or Castagne ??

              Pros and Cons? I've not seen much of Castagne. Feel I'd prefer Pereira but it makes funds tight.

              Cheers

                I think the possibility of Pereira playing RW makes him the clear favourite over Castagne.

              May have to do #3 sooner rather than later, given price changes:

              Graelish injury put me off Watkins. So I'm keeping DCL and going

              Ings + Digne to Kane + Targett.

              Yes, or No?

                Me too re. Jack and Dom. I was planning Antonio to Watkins for the DGW but I'll not do that now. Anty will need to be benched for GW26 but I do think he can grab enough goals in the following matches. Grealish will likely return just as Villa's fixtures down nasty, so I think I'm done with Villa assets, with the exception of Martinez - for now.

                If you look closely at Kane DGW, Burnley and Fulham don't give much change these days - I don't think he's key, and certainly not captain/TC material. I wouldn't kick out Digne this week either.

                Wouldn't want to get rid of Digne before Evertons double

              Plan was to take a one week punt on Maja on move on to Watkins this week. Would you still do it?

              Wasn't really impressed with both players.

                I might punt on a Fulham defender/keeper but not further forward. I'm not sure if Villa are potent without Jack. I'd look elsewhere.

              Have been out for awhile ...
              How many more DGW are there left ?
              Any idea which teams are more involved in the DGW ?

                Not many - just look at teams with games in hand, and still in domestic cup competitions.

              Is it worth taking -8 in this DGW?
              Will be looking to do these transfers... to give me 13 DGW players to BB.

              Sterling / Bamford / Pope >>> Barnes / Kane / Areola
              OR
              take -4 & keep Pope (also have Ben Mee)
