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).

    A) Antonio, Mitchell > Watkins, Aina
    B) Antonio, Mitchell > Diagne, Pereira

    A sets me up for BGW 29, but B seems more potent over the next couple of games
    Slight worry over Pereiras minutes over the DGW...

    1. Scholes Out Forever
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      depends on how many 29 players you have and if you intend to FH or not.

      Good team. Think I'd punt on pereira.

    2. cheeky moses
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      I'd also go pereira

      1. cheeky moses
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        I also like Raphina a lot despite no dgw

    3. Etonmessi
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Looks good. Also considering Veltman based solely on his stats for last 2. Haven't seen him play have you? Does he look good going forward?

  4. GCM0803

      Raphinha and ings > Barnes and Watkins (-4) ??

      1. andres
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        not Watkins, I have him and hate that fact.

      2. Nerdlinger
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        I quite like Raphs single gw to be honest. How confident are you that Barnes starting on -4 will score more that Raphs (potential) 8pts over the 2 games?

    • sirmorbach
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      To TC Kane, to TC Bruno or to TC Salah? And any particular, compelling reason why?

      1. andres
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years

                There was no one source for the Grealish injury, but if you're implying the bot who showed Villa players transferred him out... A)The deadline hasn't gone, so you can't know any transfers and B) He hasn't tweeted anything.

                If I'm wrong, send that source.

    • Garam MOSALAH
      • 7 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Who will you pick; BB -4

      A) Lloris + Konsa
      B) Martinez + Dier
      C) Martinez + Holgate

      Think A nailed to start both but B will score more points.

      1. Mr Wolf
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Martinez and AMN

    • JelliedSpark968

      • 1 Year

      Would you bring in Gundogan this week if you don't already own him? Thinking Sterling + Watkins > Gundo + Kane for -4

    • Sean
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Any guesses on EO for Kane?

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

        Round 105% c will split, DCL, Kane, Bruno, Salah, Gundo

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

          have a feeling will be much higher, hard to gauge but think almost everyone with him will end up capping and only 24% in top 10k have played TC so far so should be a big chunk this week, could see him being close to 200%

    • Lazaretti

        Do you have FH for 29? If so, AMN could be worth a shot, otherwise just keep.

          No.

      Estimate % minutes of the following City players for both games in GW26 (I say estimate verrrrry loosely knowing Pep)? Mine in brackets..
      1-Gundo (120)
      2-Cancelo (150)
      3-Stones (90)
      4-Sterling (90)
      5-KDB (150)
      6-Jesus (120)
      7-Dias (180)

        My guess:
        1) 120
        2) 90
        3) 180
        4) 90
        5) 120
        6) 120
        7) 180

          similar to mine. not sure Cancelo onyl gets 90. pretty sure he comes on vrs Wolves.

        2 months, 21 days ago

        1) 150
        2) 180
        3) 180
        4) 120
        5) 170
        6) 100
        7) 180

        I'm optimistic.

        8-Aguero (90)

        I feel this one is being over looked!

          this could be a blinder choice for some to be honest. nice one

            Yeah if I was really looking for a punt to make up some points it's the exact kind of transfer I'd be looking to do

      Right, gonna pull the trigger on my transfers this eve.
      Still mulling over my options...
      I'm thinking either:
      A) Raphinha > Barnes
      B) Cavani > Richarlison (playing him instead of Raphina to change formation)
      C) Both for -4
      D) Cavani > Kane + Raphina > Smith Rowe (benched, to change formation for Kane) for -4

      Any of these seem obviously the best option?

    • bros

      What to do?
      Ings & Tark to Kane & 4.1 def gives me 5gw on 29
      Ings & Tark to Watkins & Targett gives me 6gw on 29
      TC Kane if I bring him in, rest of team pretty template

      Thanks for any suggestions

      Where did the Watkins injury rumour come from? Any training pics?

      Where is this Watkins talk coming from? Wanted to bring him in.

      Quick survey: which 2 would you play: A) R. Pereira, B) Dias, C) Cancelo?

          Even though Cancelo could get rested?

            Yea, fancy him to haul even if only one game played, he is due!

    • Champione
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Mee --> Pereira / Reguillon worth -4?

    • Drogba Legend
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 21 days ago

      Don't need to use WC here, right? Only SGW players are Bam and Raph.

      Pope
      Dias - Stones - Robbo
      Salah - Bruno - Rashford - Raph - Gundo
      DCL - Bamford

      Fodder - Antonio - Chilwell - Fodder

      A) Save
      B) Bam/Antonio > Watkins
      C) Rashford > Son
      D) Chilwell > Digne
      E) Something else

      Cheers!

      What do you think about Rodriguez?

      Thinking of him instead of Grealish -4...

      1. Garth Marenghi
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 21 days ago

        Not a bad punt for the dgw if you think he’ll play

    • Sharpify
        2 months, 21 days ago

        I've got Pope as GK, good for DGW, but can't see a CS from either game. Probably not worth switching out though?

        1. Garth Marenghi
          • 5 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          Not worth a hit anyway

          1. Sharpify
              2 months, 21 days ago

              Gonna WC I think, and leave him in.

        2. Pegboy
          • 10 Years
          2 months, 21 days ago

          Mendy (Forster)
          Cancelo Stones Mee Dallas (Coufal)
          Salah Bruno(c) Son Gundo Raphinia
          Bamford (Ings Antonio)

          1FT £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

        3. McPollolocco
            2 months, 21 days ago

            My Team:

            Martinez
            Digne, Cancelo, Targett
            Lookman, Salah, Neto, Rodriguez
            Bamford, Ings, Kane (C)

            Bench: McCarthy, Rüdiger, Coufal, Zaha

            My suggestions for GW26:

            a) Rüdiger --> Castagne or Reguilon (can not use Pereira) then Ings move to the bench and i will play with 4 defenders??
            b) Triple Captain Kane?
