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).

    Who scores more?
    Dias or Watkins?

    I Think Dias might get one game out of the two.

    1. Traction Engine Foot
      • 3 Years

      Probably Dias, I'm not too keen on Watkins without Jack

        Yea but the other part of it is they play 2 bad defense - SHU and Leeds

        1. HashAttack
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Probably shouldn't have Watkins if we can't trust him against Leeds and Sheffield

            Agree! I can't bench him or transferring him out despite Grealish injury

    2. Pépé Pig
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Think Dias plays both personally

      1. Captain Kakaroto (I blame R…
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Really? will be 4 starts in a row (Eve, Ars, Gladbach - and now Westham)

    3. Peteski29
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Dias

    4. Goonsquad245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Close - but if you think Dias will or even might be rested it's definitely Watkins

  2. Shark Team
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    2 questions:
    1) Should I BB?
    2) 1FT 0.1 ITB, should I roll the transfer?

    Current team:
    Martinez Sanchez
    Dias Stones Shaw Dunk Dallas
    Salah Bruno Son Gundo Raphinha
    Kane Watkins Bamford

    I see Dallas Raphinha Bamford Sanchez Dunk as DGW players too cause I want them for 29 so I can't see the reason the sell them for hits
    I'm only worried about not having DCL and Barnes

  3. DavidHopkin
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Thoughts on how to get Kane? No BB and likely to TC kane or Bruno.

    A. Mccarthy, pope, cooper, Antonio - areole, steer, Mitchell, Kane (-8)

    B. Cancelo (own stones), Antonio, mccarthy - Kane, 4.5 def and steer

  4. Horlicks esq.
    • 11 Years
    1 month, 19 days ago

    Bruno is FPL gold - l gettit.

    But I have had my mind set on KDB early and the more I look at it the more I think its going to be Bruno out this week.

    4 away games and a blank with Chelsea, City and an in form West Ham.

    I think its Barnes, KDB, Son, Salah as my mid 4.

    Am i nuts?

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Not really, unless you captain Bruno his EO usually means any points he gets pushes your rank down so it is easier not having him at all and hoping he blanks entirely.

      1. Horlicks esq.
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        The EO thing is a pain. But it could also spell disaster. I'm 300k so its now or never really.

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Same sorta rank as me - given up hope of top 10k finish now but need to start making some big plays to move into the top 100k

    2. Traction Engine Foot
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      It's not nuts but obviously it's risky. KDB didn't look that great against Arsenal though.

    3. La Roja
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Not at all

    4. Goonsquad245
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 19 days ago

      Not in the slightest. Fixtures matter a lot and KDB has more of them and better ones.

      The question though is how are you getting there? Are you removing anyone else/taking hits?

      1. Horlicks esq.
        • 11 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Wildcarding so all for free.

        1. Goonsquad245
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          It's a great move on a wildcard.

    5. Echoes
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Nah, I'm thinking the same as well. Bruno generally doesn't return against the "big sides". And whenever I've seen the big games involving United, he doesn't look as dangerous most games. Think there's more to be gained from bringing in KDB than to be lost be transferring out Bruno for the next few games.

      • pingissimus

        • 2 Years

        Not at all

        Very likely losing him next week - Kane in and not KdB for me.

        His record in big matches is very very average - especially given his overall output. Just Leicester this season so far and loads of big matches ahead.

      • moment
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Weighed up the same dilemma, got rid of Salah for KDB.

      • Rains of Castamere
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Go without Kane

      • HashAttack
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        KDB hadn't really been racking up points before he was injured - now he's back and MCI revert back to 1-0 against a poor Arsenal.

        I'm hoping Aguero becomes an option - filling his boots against Southampton and Fulham would be a good way to kick start his season

    6. Echoes
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Not even in my wildest dreams I'd imagined I'd be thinking of BBing with a couple each Leeds and Brighton players in a DGW and all of them being SGW players, but here we are.
        PS still unsure if I should do the above or TC Kane tbh. Any inputs would be appreciated.

        1. tiger
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          I will have triple Leeds as my single GW players, but am likely to BB at the moment. I don't quite fancy the TC this week for some reason

      • DeltaKilo
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Who is better to bring in as a Kane enabler?

        A) Pereira - Better fixtures Better player
        B) Lookman - Plays GW29

        Cheers

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years

          Lookman for me.

        Salah Bruno Rashford Gundogan Grealish
        Watkins Bamford Brewster

      • bruuuno
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Mee > Digne (-4)?

        1. Pépé Pig
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        3. Traction Engine Foot

        • 2 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        On BB, would you do:

        Dunk -> R Pereira (-4)

        Worried Brom will score, and FHing in 29 so won't need Dunk for that.

      • shakeyjake
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Bottomed!

        Lowton, Bamford, Raphinha, play 2... whos on the bench?

        1. Miguel Sanchez
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Bench Lowton

        2. mdm
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Low bench

        3. Peteski29
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Start Bam and Raph

      • mdm
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 19 days ago

        Which would be better option for BB:

        A. Pope (tot, LEI), Mitchell (FUL,MUN), Raph(AVL), Dallas(AVL)

        B. McCarthy (BUR), Shaw (BRI), Raph (SHU), Dallas (SHU)

      • ltks
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 19 days ago

        What would be better for bench boost?

        A) Ederson + Digne + Raphina
        or
        B) Pickford + Dias/Cancelo + Barnes with -4

      • NateDogsCats
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Should I just hold Maddison and play Raphinha, or move Maddison to Mount? I'm planning the latter anyway as I can't see Maddison returning any time soon and think Liverpool are still vulnerable so it could be an okay fixture but I also think Raphinha could do well tomorrow.

          1. Alonso The Great Midfielder
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            just play raphinha

          2. GreennRed
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Maddison to Barnes.

        • Alonso The Great Midfielder
          • 9 Years

          My team currently on

          Martinez(steer)
          Stones-Dias-Rudiger(Robbo-Coufal)
          Bruno-Son-Barnes-Raphinha(Saka)
          DCL-Kane-Bamford

          is it worth a -12 to bench boost and remove the likes of saka-bamford-steer-coufal?
          really think this is a great time to use BB

          1. mynameisq
            • 7 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Steer upgrade yes, the others I would bench boost with

            • 1 Year
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Dont take a hit for 3 players that play in 29 mate

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Not for a -12. Your BB would have to get 30 points to even begin to make it worthwhile

        • eririi
          • 4 Years

          Who is the best DGW defender at 4.6 or less?

          1. GreennRed
            • 9 Years
            1 month, 19 days ago

            Aina.

        • mynameisq
          • 7 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Worth going up to -8 to get in Holgate for Elmo (took a punt and it flopped with Matty cash back already)

          A) take the hit
          B) just play Elmo as he might get the first game
          C) just play Dallas instead

          1 month, 19 days ago

          Assuming nobody thinks I should sell Salah to fund a move to Kane for a -4 which seems mad, my exciting options for my FT are as follows:

          a) Mee -> Targett
          b) Mee -> Dier
          b) Ings -> Watkins
          c) Fabianski -> Martinez
          d) Fabianski -> Lloris

          Thoughts??

            Can you bench any of the guys you don't transfer out?

            If not, I think Fab is the most important to get rid of, so C.

            Probably 3 out of those, just can't advise anyone taking out son for a hit

          I am looking to BB but have 3 Leeds.

          For -4
          A. Dallas > Target
          B Raph > M Pereira
          C Bam > Watkins
          D Hold and don't BB

          Thanks and good luck all.

            If I don' BB could TC Kane or Bruno

              Do you have FH for GW29?

            My dilemma too. Thinking of Dallas to Digne but worried Dallas might haul again. Feels wrong to have 3 SGW players for bench boost though.

              I am leaning towards TC Kane. I cant bring myself to -4 just to BB when the player i take out is a + for GW29

          Mee to Konsa or Keane -4

          worth it?

            • 5 Years

            I would go Keane

        • bruuuno
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 19 days ago

          Grealish > Rodriguez (-4)?

          Or another mid up to 8.1

        • mdm
          • 9 Years

          Who to captain:

          A. Bruno
          B. DCL
          C. Son

          Thanks.

            Liking DCL the more i think about it

              Seems fitness is the issue - otherwise I think he gets more goals that Kane this week

          2. Echoes
              1 month, 19 days ago

              Safe - A
              Differential - B

            1 month, 19 days ago

            On BB, would you do -

            Dunk -> R Pereira (-4)

            Worried Brom will score, and FHing in 29 so won't need Dunk for that.

            Yay or Nay

            Diagne or Maja as a punt? I need players for 29 but Diagne's fixtures look better

            1. mynameisq
              • 7 Years

              DCL, Fernandez or Salah for captain???

                Salah out of them

                if that your best choice, then salah is a go for me. He is due for goals right now.

              Anyone else previously FHing 29 now considering using it in 33 instead? Enables you to hold your Spurs (they play shef 34) and City assets beyond 34, and capitalise on some tasty looking fixtures in 33 for the likes of Villa, United, Leicester, Liverpool (if they sort out their Anfield form) and Wolves.
              I agree with that Zophar's article that a 29 free hit mightn't actually gain as many points as we'd think with so few players to pick from and attackers/defenders cancelling each other out FPL pointswise.

                Yep, spent most of my day planning around reading that article. Its a lot easier for me to navigate to 33 with free transfers. I appreciate the ceiling is potentially higher in 33 but in 29 i can focus on assets in and around that week where others will be bringing in duds for 29.

                  Good point there, in my case I've currently got five players that blank 33 (Areola, Maja, Cancelo, Gundo, Kane), so will be a decision I'll have to think about whether I fh29 or not.

                1 month, 19 days ago

                I don't wont to worry about gw29 planning - so that's when I use my FH

                I've only got Cancelo, Gundo and Kane to worry about at the moment (in gw33) and still got a WC - Might just hold the WC until gw34

                Just looking at gw32 - it would be easy to switch to double LIV and MUN for that fixture and 33 - Liverpool have Leeds away and MUN are home to Burnley (or Leicester home to WBA)
