FPL injury and team news updates ahead of Double Gameweek 26

Fantasy Premier League managers considering Everton players for Double Gameweek 26 received some helpful news from the latest round of press conferences.

After appearing as a second-half substitute against Liverpool, Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.7m) looks much more likely to start on Monday night.

Carlo Ancelotti said in his Thursday press conference that he and Allan (£5.2m) were “okay” following their recent lay-offs.

“Allan and Dominic [Calvert-Lewin] are OK, they are training regularly. I think that they are available to play for sure from the beginning.” – Carlo Ancelotti

Fantasy managers should keep an eye out for Joshua King (£5.4m) though, who is reportedly edging closer to his first Premier League start for the Toffees.

“He’s not far [from a start]. The important thing for him is to stay fit, his condition is good. He’s working and adapting really well, he will find a place in the first XI in some games.” – Carlo Ancelotti

And anyone backing their Everton assets for Double Gameweek 26 will be mildly encouraged by the latest injury news coming out of the Southampton camp, Oriol Romeu (£4.5m) and Takumi Minamino (£6.0m) joining a long list of players in the physio room.

“We have another two injuries. Oriol Romeu’s season is over. Surgery on Monday means three months out. He has a fracture on his ankle. [His injury] hurts us. I don’t know who plays number six at the weekend. Minamino is out for the weekend with a light muscle injury. It leaves us with Ibrahima (Diallo), Kyle Walker-Peters, Theo Walcott, Michael Obafemi and Will Smallbone injured (the Everton match).” – Ralph Hasenhüttl

“Hamstring (for Minamino). Slight problem in the hamstring. Maybe he comes back next week. It’s not a big injury. We rested him from the beginning after having not played so long would be too much for him. It was very slippery. The pitch was not good in Leeds. After the first movement, he struggled with his hamstring. He finished the game because we could not change anymore but he’s not perfect.” – Ralph Hasenhüttl

Not only will West Bromwich Albion be without Semi Ajayi (£4.8m) through suspension when they host Brighton on Sunday, but they will also miss Robert Snodgrass (£5.6m).

In his Thursday press conference, Sam Allardyce revealed that the decision to rule him out was to avoid running the risk of further damage.

“He wanted to be involved in the squad. The kick in the knee ultimately covered up a slightly bigger problem in his calf, where there was a slight tear. If I send him out on Saturday against Brighton and that calf tears more than it is now, then I would be kicking myself. Cos that would be four or five weeks maybe out. I have taken the decision to tell him to get ready for next Thursday.” – Sam Allardyce

How De Bruyne looked on his Man City return against Arsenal

Pep Guardiola did not go into much detail about team news ahead of Manchester City’s Double Gameweek schedule but provided some useful information on Kevin De Bruyne (£11.8m).

“He’s fully fit. He was fully fit against Gladbach as well. I’m not going to say any differently to how key and important a player he is for us. In the last part of the season, he will be so important.” – Pep Guardiola

Major changes for first Double Gameweek 26 opponents West Ham seem unlikely.

Arthur Masuaku (£4.3m) and Andriy Yarmolenko (£5.5m) remain out while Ryan Fredericks (£4.2m) is “touch and go” with a groin injury which is not thought to be serious.

Gundogan fit to start as De Bruyne returns to City XI and Foden drops to bench 1

Those hoping to invest in Leicester for the Double Gameweek did not receive as helpful an update on James Maddison (£7.3m) as they might have hoped for.

Brendan Rodgers confirmed surgery was not required, pointing instead to fluctuating pain levels dictating the time-frame more than anything else.

“It’s going to be one of those where he doesn’t need anything surgically, it’s just going to be about once the pain dies down. I can’t put a timeline on it. It’s going to be about how he feels. We’re going to have to assess that each day.” – Brendan Rodgers

How Aston Villa fared without Grealish ahead of Double Gameweek 26

Dean Smith was more definitive in his Friday press conference, ruling out Jack Grealish (£7.6m) for the first of Aston Villa’s Double Gameweek 26 matches against Leeds while Matty Cash (£5.0m) and Wesley (£6.0m) remain sidelined.

“He could be back to play against Sheffield United next Wednesday or Wolves next week. We’ll be led by Jack on that.” – Dean Smith

Leeds must continue without defensive midfielder Kalvin Phillips (£4.9m) when they host Aston Villa on Saturday afternoon.

“His injury is in his calf. It’s a place where we have to avoid that he has a recurrence because the recurrence makes the situation worse. So we’re being very cautious so that when he returns, he returns for definite.” – Marcelo Bielsa

Marcelo Bielsa was more positive about Mateusz Klich‘s (£5.2m) involvement following his withdrawal against Southampton. The Leeds manager, who also ruled out Rodrigo (£5.7m) and Robin Koch (£4.3m) on Thursday, said that Klich was “doing pretty well” but that he was unsure whether he will be fit enough for Saturday.

There are very few concerns at Spurs, meanwhile, with Giovani Lo Celso (£6.9m) the only absentee now that Serge Aurier (£5.2m) is “fine” and back in training.

Ole Gunnar Solksjaer could be short some relatively important personnel for Manchester United’s Double Gameweek, notably Scott McTominay (£4.9m) and Edinson Cavani (£7.9m). Daniel James (£6.2m) was the most recent addition to the list of doubts.

“He felt a tweak. We will have to check on him tonight. Then Scott, Donny, Edinson, we hope that they can be available for the weekend – I’m not sure. Paul [Pogba] is still out for a few weeks.” – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

It looks as if Liverpool won’t have to wait too much longer to rely on Diogo Jota (£6.6m) after his long-term absence.

Jurgen Klopp gave a promising update on him in his Friday media briefing although it is hard to say the former Wolves man will be necessarily involved in Double Gameweek 26.

“Diogo [Jota] trained now twice with the team, looks very good but it’s a long time out. So we have to see what we can do with that but in training, it’s really promising.” – Jurgen Klopp

Things were less positive at the other end of the pitch with Fabinho (£5.4m), James Milner (£5.3m) and Jordan Henderson (£5.4m), the latter facing more time off than the other two:

“Fab[inho] is not yet with the team, tomorrow he will have his first session with the team. Same for James Milner. All the others are long-term. The best-case scenario, I don’t know, to be honest. It’s not a quick one. We all hope that it’s still a possibility for him to play a few games this season, but we’ll see.” – Jurgen Klopp

Chelsea will be without Thiago Silva (£5.6m) for the first of their Double Gameweek 26 matches with Thomas Tuchel earning no new injury problems following a midweek win over Atletico Madrid. The only issue the Champions League victory has created for the Blues’ boss is what to do with the in-form Olivier Giroud (£6.7m).

“No more injury concerns. No Thiago Silva cannot play on Sunday. He did an individual session today and one on the pitch which was a big step for him. So I hope he will join the group next week.” – Thomas Tuchel

“All the time (Giroud) deserves to start. He trains very well, he’s a leader in the group and he is a big personality so even when he did not start he deserved to start. But I will not tell you now if we will let him play from the first minute.” – Thomas Tuchel

Fulham’s two matches in Double Gameweek 26 have attracted some interest in their assets. Thankfully, the injury news coming out of Scott Parker’s Friday press conference does not impinge on any of our favourite Fantasy cottagers:

“We’re all good. Mitro comes back into the fold as well. Tom Cairney and Terence Kongolo still need some work.” – Scott Parker

Fulham’s opponents Crystal Palace look likely to be without Wilfried Zaha (£7.1m) once again on Saturday, Roy Hodgson reporting on Friday that the player has been on the training ground today but that he will not be in full training with the rest of the squad until next week.

Burnley manager Sean Dyche had a long list of players to talk through on Friday:

“Woody has been out for a few days now training, so that’s good. J-Rod had a couple of knocks that we’ve been keeping an eye on and he seems fine. Johann [Berg Gudmundsson] not yet, I’ll be surprised if he’s come through it by Sunday. Robbie Brady is a maybe. Barnesy won’t be for Sunday. Erik [Pieters] is touch and go. Dale Stephens trained today so we’re hopeful on that one. Two or three maybe could figure, the rest we’re still waiting on.” – Sean Dyche

Owners of Bukayo Saka (£5.2m) might be somewhat concerned by Mikel Arteta’s recent comments related to his physical condition.

“He’s really fatigued. He’s played a lot of minutes and he hasn’t had much rest. We asked him to go again and produce this moment, and the boy has done it. Let’s see how we are feeling tomorrow. Today the players are still in Greece, we have to travel back on a four-hour flight but we won’t use that as an excuse.” – Mikel Arteta

Tariq Lamptey‘s (£4.6m) comeback edges ever closer based on Graham Potter’s most recent update, in which he revealed good progress building up match fitness in training.

“He’s had a good training session, a good week. We need to see how he reacts tomorrow but there’s a chance that he will be in the squad. He won’t start.” – Graham Potter

Meanwhile, Adam Webster‘s (£4.3m) return from an ankle injury would be “more towards after the international break”.

Callum Wilson (£6.6m) is “three of four weeks away” from a return, Javier Manquillo (£4.2m) is recovering from an ankle injury and Saturday’s meeting with Wolves is “a bit too soon” for Federico Fernández (£4.7m).

    All done now.
    This week Ings/Grealish > Kane/Barnes.

    Martinez
    Shaw, Dias, Stones
    Bruno, Salah, Barnes, Gundo
    DCL, Kane (TC), Bamford

    Raph, Dallas, Cress

    3,175 OR so template with 1-2 diffs is plenty fine for me week to week.

    1. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Play Raph over Bam?

      1. RogDog_jimmy
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Close. Purely a pick based on vibes that may change before deadline. (Raph(c) over Bam last week worked so thought I’d flip it).

    2. mwa1t
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Exact same as my team but I'm at 1.1 million OR....

        1. RogDog_jimmy
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          2 months, 21 days ago

          Dang. It’s crazy how once the template team shakes out you’re kinda stuck where you are. I don’t have to take many risks now either.

          1. mwa1t
              2 months, 21 days ago

              Yeah chasing rank is hard, differential captain picks etc can either really help or just dig you a bigger hole

        2. Better off with a pin and a…

          Nice rank. Good team and good luck!

        Don't consider it as a dgw if one player is playing against City.
        Also don't consider it as a dgw if one player is playing for City.

        1. Dthinger
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          this is excellent advice

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 21 days ago

            I think it’s horrible advice

        2. Sharpify
            2 months, 21 days ago

            So get rid of all my City players, and my West Ham, Wolves and Soton players?

            Got it!

            • 8 Years
            2 months, 21 days ago

            I'm treating the double double for City as 3 games for the price of 2.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          How I'm currently lining up:
          Martinez
          Cancelo, Stones, Mee
          Salah, Bruno, Barnes, Gundo, Raphinha
          DCL, Kane(c)
          (Pope; Bamford, Kilman, Coufal)

          1) GTG
          2) Captain Bruno
          3) Kane TC
          4) Bruno TC

          1. b91jh
            • 3 Years
            2 months, 21 days ago

            C, may as well do Mee to Targett imo.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 21 days ago

              Hmm. I've already taken a hit. Not too keen on taking another.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 21 days ago

            I'd be tempted by 4 if I wasn't BB myself. That guy could so easily haul 10+ points in each match.

        4. Niho992
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          Diagne or Watkins on WC?

          1. elwardio
            • 9 Years
            2 months, 21 days ago

            Watkins

        5. Prince of Persia
          • 6 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          Anyone interested in Fulham defenders (like Aina)? Have both DGW 26 and BGW 29. They recently started to keep clean sheets as well.

          1. Sean
            • 11 Years
            2 months, 21 days ago

            Needed a def with good fixtures in 27 and 28 so went for Targett but if you can bench in those weeks he's defo an option

          2. Captain_Shirokov
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 21 days ago

            yes but no room in my wc defence

          3. thepuntmaster
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 7 Years
            2 months, 21 days ago

            I've got Areola in my side

          4. RyanC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 21 days ago

            Yep. Just brought Aina in. Great underlying stats in an improving Fulham defence, good double fixture against two of the worst teams for xG recently, and plays in the BGW.

        6. TVPlugSockets
            2 months, 21 days ago

            Anyone else going without Kane?

            Don’t have him but makes me very nervous...

            1. Thescaff
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 21 days ago

              Those who didn't waste the FH have no need to get him in.
              It feels good

            2. ‘Tis the Season
              • 2 Years
              2 months, 21 days ago

              it should knowing his ownership with all the TC

            3. Dthinger
              • 4 Years
              2 months, 21 days ago

              I don't have him. Spurs arent lighting up the scoresheets so I felt like Son was enough

              1. Pedaso Pirates
                • 7 Years
                2 months, 21 days ago

                Son's touch has been a bit 'off'. Kane looks sharp and personally I expect Spurs to fire when they are back in harness.

            4. elwardio
              • 9 Years
              2 months, 21 days ago

              Yep will be difficult viewing, even with son offering a degree of insurance

            Worth -8 to get Martinez/Targett for Steer/Coufal and BB?

            Martinez, Steer
            Stones, Dias; Digne, Dallas, Coufal
            Salah, Bruno, Barnes, Gundogan Raphina
            Watkins, DCL (VC), Kane (c)

              • 7 Years
              2 months, 21 days ago

              You've already got Martinez?

              Looks like a side you could easily bench boost though, so would do with a -8.

                • 8 Years

                No, sorry, Martinez is DDG

                  Hmm, is Martinez + DDG not too much money sitting on your keepers?

                  How about Guaita/Areola and Targett?

                    Agree, but DDG out next week, planned swap to Martinez anyway

            All set to BB this week?

            Ederson*
            Cancelo* - Shaw* - Soyuncu* - Burn (wba)
            Fernandes* C - Salah* - Son*
            Vardy* - DCL * - Bamford (AVL)

            Areola* - Raph (AVL) - ESR (lei) - Strujik (AVL)

            1FT and 0itb, but don’t see any moves to make.
            G2G?

              Switch Burn with Raph and that isn’t BB worthy

            Still trying to decide on GW 26 Bench Boost keeper:

            Pickford (4.8) - SOU, wba
            or
            Areola (4.5) – cry, TOT

            RMT says Areola, but I think Pickford is the better choice given Everton’s fixtures.

          • Bubbles1985
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 21 days ago

            Antonio and Ayling out for
            Watkins and...

            A Stones
            B Soyuncu
            C Keane
            D Godfrey
            E Maitland-Niles

            Already have Martinez, Digne and Cancelo but really want someone nailed for both fixtures this GW!

            Alternatively could bring in Pereira and Maja...

            Help!

            1. b91jh
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 21 days ago

              B and D are the typical low risk, low reward pick... I may go for Keane or AMN.

              • 6 Years
              2 months, 21 days ago

              Watkins rumoured to be injured, not worth the risk imo (even if the rumours turn out to be just rumours)

              1. Bubbles1985
                • 4 Years
                2 months, 21 days ago

                Pereira or Dias and Maja it is then!

                1. The Red Devil
                  • 6 Years
                  2 months, 21 days ago

                  Dias & maja sounds great

                  1. Bubbles1985
                    • 4 Years
                    2 months, 21 days ago

                    Only tempted by Pereira because of the Pep factor

                    1. The Red Devil
                      • 6 Years
                      2 months, 21 days ago

                      Dias does seem to feature whenever available
                      But it's pep, so can't be 100% sure

              Watkins Bamford

              Would you bring in Son and Targett for Coufal and Grealish?

              Would you transfer in with -4 one of Digne/Villa def/Reguilon/Pereira (LEI def) and play over either one of the Leeds shgw guys Dallas, Bam or Raph?

              Two options, I'll be playing around 29 and WC after fwiw.

              A. Grealish to Barnes.
              Caveat: Costs a hit now and probably one later (so -8). Means benching Bamford.

              B. Bench Grealish. Play Bamford.
              Caveat: One less DGW player. Lack of clarity on injury.

              How do I know if I qualified for the FFS Cup?

                2 months, 21 days ago

                Fantasy managers who registered their teams and scored more than 69 points (after hits) qualified for round one automatically, while those who scored exactly that only progressed if their overall rank was 237,328th or better.

              How come nobody is going for Luke Thomas (LEI)? Is he not going to play? Amazing value for money if he does

                Played Europa last night. Think he would start one at most.

                That’s the problem, “if” he plays. Rather risky if you need him to start.

              WC question. Why do I see no one with Cresswell?

                • 10 Years

                No DGW and ordinary fixtures.

                Not a WCer but I'm definitely holding him as a 5.1m buyer.

                I sold him on wildcard. But I'll probably get him back in GW29.

                  Any help with this Karan?

                  A. Tarko >> Digne (-4)

                    Having similar questions but all the additional players are for a hit and means benching Bam for example AND might even include transferring out player who can score 20+ in dgw (For example Salah out). So probably I am not going to live a little. 😀

                I'm not on WC and I'm selling Cresswell this week. Served me well but fixtures get bad now and Villa defender gives me an extra 2 games.

              Bamford (Ings Antonio)

              1 FT £2.1m Still got WC and BB left, but looking to deploy around 30/31.

              Still mulling over a WC now, but feels a bit of a waste to just try and fit in Kane/Barnes/Villa defender. My team value is pretty low too, so I'm not even sure I could squeeze them in even if I activated WC.

              A) Ings > DCL (no hit)
              B) Ings + Antonio > Kane(C) + Maja
              C) A or B + Mendy>Martinez (-4) 2 DGWs coming up and much better fixtures than Mendy

                TC available too, which would probably be deployed if I brought in Kane.

                  I had similar situation. Went Ings to DCL and still wo Kane. I am also Bruno TC, DCL vc at the moment.
