FPL Gameweek 8 injury and team news: Updates on Raphinha, Torres and more

We’ve got all the Gameweek 8 team news so far in our latest injury round-up of the pre-match press conferences, with Raphinha the headline act from Thursday’s conference calls.

Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa was one of six Premier League head coaches to face the media on Thursday, while a further 13 top-flight bosses are set to provide us with injury updates on Friday.

New Watford head coach Claudio Ranieri spoke to reporters yesterday and you can find updates on the Hornets’ injury latest here.

We’ll round up the key updates from today’s pressers in the article below. Don’t forget to keep checking our Predicted Line-ups page and Injuries and Bans tab, which will be gradually updated between now and Saturday’s Fantasy Premier League (FPL) deadline.

LEEDS UNITED

Raphinha’s involvement against Southampton looks in some doubt and will partly hinge on how many minutes he racks up for Brazil in their World Cup qualifier against Uruguay on Friday morning.

Marcelo Bielsa said that there were “many aspects to consider” when evaluating whether Raphinha would feature, citing game-time and travel as factors.

“The options that he has to participate in the game on Saturday depends on whether he plays this final [Brazil] game tonight, how many minutes he plays, how he finishes the game, after he has participated in it, how efficient the rest he can have in the next 36 hours is considering that a third of those will be spent flying, and if there’s any risk that the fatigue could cause injuries, then we won’t risk him. There are so many aspects to consider that I can’t offer you any certainties either way.” – Marcelo Bielsa on Raphinha

Robin Koch (pelvis), Patrick Bamford (ankle) and Luke Ayling (knee) remain out but Bielsa confirmed on Thursday that Adam Forshaw (thigh) and Crysencio Summerville (illness) have been passed fit, while Kalvin Phillips (calf) “has chances” of being able to play after withdrawing from the England squad over the international break.

“Bamford won’t play. He has a problem in his ankle which we informed previously. His recovery is subject to the evolution of the injury. I anticipated a date [for him to return], it wouldn’t be because I have arguments to do so. The evolution we have to control is on a day-to-day.

“Kalvin [Phillips] has chances of being able to do so.

“Koch is in the US where he will undergo a simple procedure to try and solve his problem in the pubis. Ayling is at the halfway stage of his process of recovery. Forshaw and Summerville are available again.” – Marcelo Bielsa

BURNLEY

Ben Mee will miss the trip to Manchester City after testing positive for Covid-19, while Matej Vydra and Charlie Taylor are doubts after picking up knocks over the international break.

Maxwell Cornet‘s hamstring injury looks to have cleared up, however, with the winger jetting off to join up with the Ivory Coast squad in the last week and then rejoining training today.

“The only one we’ve got missing, not because of injury but because of Covid, unfortunately, is Ben Mee. He’s fine but he’s tested positive so he has to go through the protocols before he comes back in.

“A few knocks, Vyds come back with a bit of a knock, so we’ll wait and see on that one. Probably touch and go. Charlie Taylor has had a couple of knocks, a little bit touch and go on him. Maxwell [Cornet] has come through fine, he’s trained today.” – Sean Dyche

ARSENAL

Granit Xhaka (knee) is a long-term absentee but aside from a “minor injury” that renders Gabriel Martinelli a doubt for the visit of Crystal Palace, Mikel Arteta said that he had no fitness concerns following the end of the October international break. 

“Not any bad news, at the moment everybody seems to be OK. Granit [Xhaka] is progressing really well but obviously, we know that it’s a long-term injury.

“We haven’t had the players here yet. Some of them because they’re still traveling and they’ve not been assessed by the medical staff.

“Unfortunately, [Martinelli] got injured last week – it’s a minor injury and we don’t know if he’s going to be available for Monday.” – Mikel Arteta

SOUTHAMPTON

Che Adams (muscle) has joined Jack Stephens (knee) on the sidelines for Southampton’s clash with Leeds, although the striker’s injury – unlike that of Stephens – isn’t a serious one.

Tino Livramento was among the Southampton players who were representing their countries over the October international break but, Adams aside, Ralph Hasenhuttl has reported no fresh concerns from his returning squad members.

James Ward-Prowse begins a three-match ban, however.

“Jack Stephens is still out. We have Che Adams returning back from the internationals with a muscle injury. It’s not too serious but for this game on the weekend, he is definitely out.

“I’ve not seen everybody back so far but the reports have been quite positive for the rest, that they are all well.” – Ralph Hasenhuttl

BRIGHTON AND HOVE ALBION

Steven Alzate (ankle) and Danny Welbeck (hamstring) are both set for spells on the sidelines after undergoing surgery but Brighton have been handed a boost by the return of Enock Mwepu (groin), Adam Webster (hamstring) and Yves Bissouma (knee) to training.

“Both Danny Welbeck and Steven Alzate suffered injuries in the Crystal Palace match which require surgery, and therefore both players will be out for a significant period of time.

“Enock Mwepu, Adam Webster and Yves Bissouma are back in training, and all three have a chance of being available for selection this weekend.” – Graham Potter

BRENTFORD

Thomas Frank confirmed late this afternoon that Kristoffer Ajer (hamstring) and Vitaly Janelt (thigh) should both be fit to play for Brentford against Chelsea after missing out in Gameweek 7.

ANY OTHER BUSINESS

Aside from the six official pre-match pressers, there was also news emerging from Spain that Ferran Torres is set to miss up to six weeks of action with a foot fracture. Manchester City confirmed the midfielder is injured but haven’t put an exact timeframe on his recovery.

Everton boss Rafael Benitez was speaking to the club’s in-house media, meanwhile, and said of his walking wounded:

“The international break is an opportunity to bring back players. Alex Iwobi was training and [so were] Digne and Coleman – that is good news for us – they have started training with the team.

“The others are improving and we will see in the week how they are. Lucas [Digne] had an issue and for two or three days was under treatment but he has started training.

“Fingers crossed [for Yerry Mina], hopefully everything will be fine in the last game [for Colombia], then we will see.” – Rafael Benitez

        I like the idea of

        Benhrama - Bailey when fit, West Hams Run of fixtures are not so good and you already have Antonio as a West Ham attacking option

        This bench too weak for WC?

        Sanchez
        TAA Cancelo James
        Salah Son Foden Mbeumo
        Lukaku Toney Armstrong

        Foster | Livra | Manquillo | Brownhill

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…

          No, Livra a gift from the FPL gods

          Can’t survive xmas with that bench

          • 6 Years

          City & Chelsea 7 games in 20 days … you could be unlucky and have Cancelo James
          & Foden all benched one game week and throw in an injury or two - basically you could easily be relying on your full bench

          I would upgrade Manquillo

      7. evilfish
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 16 days ago

        Start Mbeumo or Toney?

        1. Fulchester's New Centr…
          • 4 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Toney on pens

        Final WC draft

        Ramsadale
        TAA, Cancelo, Chilwell, Laporte
        Salah, Foden, Jota
        Lukaku, Antonio, Hwang

        foster, Liv, mbuemo, brownhill

        3. The Movement
            1 month, 15 days ago

            I love the team "on paper" but for me far too many rotation risk, Cancelo, Chilwellm Laporte, Foden, Jota, Hwang. May want to look at players more nailed, but nothing wrong with that team if they all play

        4. dunas_dog
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          To complete WC

          A Son and 4.5 m forward or
          B Saka and Antonio

          Ramsdale Foster
          TAA James Cancelo Duffy Livramento
          Salah Raphinha Foden Mbeumo ****
          Lukaku Hwang ****

          Thoughts on this wildcard:

          Ramsdale | Foster
          TAA James Cancelo | ??? Livra
          Salah Foden Son Mbeumo ???
          Lukaku Armstrong ???

          ??? Can be either:

          1. Duffy Saka 4.5
          2. Laporte ESR 4.5
          3. Duffy ESR Hwang

          Option 1 and 3 leaves 0.4 ITB which I can use to go Armstrong > Toney in 2/3 weeks if I want to. Banking on the fixtures now really.

          Thoughts?

          1. Fulchester's New Centr…

            Armstrong to Toney is currently a 0.3 jump isn't it? You're probably ok with 0.4, but what if Toney rises?

            I'm in a similar boat, so I've just gone Toney as I'd be priced out otherwise, and it's easier to move down to Armstrong, Pukki or Hwang

            1. AYLD28
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 6 Years

              Nah, 6.4 he rose

          So many Reece James picks in WC teams. Some people never learn.

          1. HMC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            did this on gw5 WC and held him

            1. Mr. O'Connell
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 16 days ago

              Same here. But not expecting any points from him anytime soon.

            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            If there’s positive news out of tomorrow’s presser he’s in for me. Ahead of the curve

          Evening all....Mt wildcard team is below, subject to James news....

          With raph unlikely to play and question marks over James and maybe cancelo, would you stick with this squad?

          Or would you downgrade raph to saka for this week to guarantee the starter

          Thanks

          Ramsdale
          Taa cancelo james (Duffy Livra )

            Not over keen on James myself, but Duffy and Livra could well do more than okay this week and Brownhill should at least start

          2. ArseneAllTheWay
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Not keen on Hwang, I’d downgrade Son and get Saka and Toney in

            1. Flynny
              • 6 Years
              1 month, 16 days ago

              Thanks....I've had this team practically locked in for a week.....not sure I'm willing to sacrifice son now.....cheers

                • 8 Years

                Just think there’s more value in 5.5 mids (Mb/Everton mids/ESR) than flash in the pan Hwang imo. But good luck!

            This is my exact WC team, so prob template but also good. On the fence with James/Laporte

          Between Saka and Townsend who do you pick?
          Have been on Townsend all IB but beginning to rethink to have Arsenal cover

          1. Fulchester's New Centr…
            • 4 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            I like Townsend, was great under Rafa at NUFC and doing well again now

            1. Zebras
              • 5 Years
              1 month, 16 days ago

              Thanks all, sticking with Townsy then!

          2. ArseneAllTheWay
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            I’ve loved Townsend but think his numbers will start to drop off now DCL and Rich are back. Not on pens anymore too.

            1. Eastman
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 4 Years

              No Townsend is the one

        9. Bergkamps second touch
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 16 days ago

          Cancelo at risk now Zinchenko is back? Might go safe and get Dias.

          1. ArseneAllTheWay
            • 8 Years
            1 month, 16 days ago

            Don’t think Cancelo will be rotated, too important to how they play

            1. Tinkermania
              • 2 Years
              1 month, 16 days ago

              Is Pep still the manager? 😉

              1. Gunneryank
                  1 month, 16 days ago

                  Eh, he picks Cancelo 90% of the time. He's too good for Pep to leave him out. He will need rest here and there of course.

            2. Fulchester's New Centr…
              • 4 Years
              1 month, 16 days ago

              Was more of a rotation risk last year with Mendy around and still matched Dias then

            3. HMC
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 11 Years
              1 month, 16 days ago

              he can play on both sides. I do think he starts 33/34 PL matches if fit so you just need a playable backup like Livra.
              wouldn't be too concerned

          2. Bonus magnet
            • 4 Years

              Anyone feel it might not be a bad punt to get Kane as captain for one week v new.. get lukaku for next week? I’ve a decent rank and it could be a nice differential if it paid off.

              1. HMC
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • 11 Years
                1 month, 16 days ago

                Newcastle are some what of a bogey team for spurs. Think with majority going Salah its probably not the week to do it but can see the logic

                1. Fantasyfreakstradbally
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  1 month, 16 days ago

                  Okay, good to know! Yes salah is the obvious one. It’s those early kick offs especially after IB away to a team with new a new manager plus they beat Liverpool convincingly last time. Saying that Mo is a beast:)

                Can't warm to any Spurs attackers under Nuno

                1. Fantasyfreakstradbally
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  1 month, 16 days ago

                  I will agree that Spurs lack structure so far under nuno.

              3. Fulchester's New Centr…
                • 4 Years
                1 month, 16 days ago

                Apart from a wonder goal for England a few weeks back, what has Kane done to give you such faith?

                1. Fantasyfreakstradbally
                  • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                  1 month, 16 days ago

                  Well, he’s still a world class player. Obvious dip in form due to the transfer saga. He’s won’t not score goals ever again… maybe after the IB he might comeback with more edge against a leaky Newcastle team who will surely have a big atmosphere after new takeover. Could leave themselves exsposed.

                I feel like it would be a bad punt.

                  No. i think Nuno-ball is a real thing. Yes Son will tick over here and there, but they just aren't an attacking side. Kane is the biggest waste of resources in the FPL game, imo (apologies to Kaptain Kane).

                Think I’m settled on this WC, at last!

                Ramsdale (Foster)
                TAA, Azpi, Cancelo (Duffy, Liv)
                Salah, Foden, Raph, Saka (Brownhill)
                Lukaku, Toney, Antonio

                    With so much uncertainty on the likes of James/Rudiger/Hwang etc I think safe is the way to go

                Any suggestions or G2G?

                Rudiger still the best Chelsea option on WC? And Jimi over Toney until Brentford fixtures turn?

                  Think I’d shift to Azpi for safe minutes for now. Wait to see what Tuchel says tomorrow though

                  Is Ramsdale a trap?

                  Arsenal shocking for a long time since yet so much trust in this guy.

                    Bournemouth > Sheff Utd > Arsenal?

                      1 month, 16 days ago

                      No, he's a good keeper, and the Gunners have a good fixture run. He'll provide value for his price.

                    Who would you rather own for the next 3 fixtures (or do fixtures not come into the equation here)?

                    a) Jota - wat utd BHA
                    b) Sarr - LIV eve SOU
                    c) Foden - BUR bha CRY

                    Currently own a+b - not ideal having 3 midfielders in that first game. In saying that, i'm not banking on a pool cs without Allison + Fabinho

                    Would you move either for free or better to roll FT?

                      1 month, 16 days ago

                      Foden could outscore the other two this week alone (or not even feature)

                        unanimous, interesting. would love to hear some news he's playing before price rise

                    4. Gunneryank
                        1 month, 16 days ago

                        Fixtures always factor (unless you're Mo Salah apparently). I'd move Sarr as Watford's fixture run is so bad. I own Sarr too and I would move him if i didn't have more pressing needs (don't we all?)

                          1 month, 16 days ago

                          Thought it was more, but have exact money to go Semedo > Dias, Sarr > Foden for free
                          Then assess whether I go Jota to Raphinha the following week

                              Lovely moves for me. Foden is a gamble but that goes without saying. Pep likes Foden, so that bodes well.

                                Cheers. Ideally I'd ignore prices and wait the extra day but if he rises tonight i'm priced out.
                                If I jump on now and he doesn't rise i'll be a bit pissed....

                                    Sure but we're in the period of the week where moves are warranted. If you believe in him, he'll return, which means he may rise eventually, or even soon.

                                    Remember, points before pounds.

                          If you had to pick one only for this week:

                              Looks good, only things I’d consider would be:

                              A) Sanchez/White vs Ramsdale/Duffy, not much in it though
                              B) Maybe downgrade Gallagher and then upgrade Maupay to Jimi? Also prefer Toney to Maupay in that price bracket personally

                                    Something that can be accessed and left at any time while listening to Mrs Fulchester and in which she has no interest in at all.

                                      Although without encouragement from me, one of the little Fulchesters has made himself a team this year so I might have to move onto something else.

                                            Just joking, am trying to encourage and help him in every way I can, although he has made some choices I don't approve of.

                                      B seems safest with highest upside. But keep in mind i am bad.

                                    Double city or Chelsea defence?

                                        City, as much as i am loathe to admit it.

                                      So...

                                      I think I'm settled on this team on a WC with 0itb:

                                      Ramsdale Foster
                                      TAA Cancelo James Livramento Manquillo
                                      Salah Son Raphinha Mbuemo Brownhill
                                      Lukaku Antonio Toney

                                      However, I'm unlikely to captain Lukaku more than Salah over the next 7-8 weeks, so is it silly to have him?

                                      I could go:
                                      Raya Foster
                                      TAA Cancelo James White Livramento
                                      Salah Son Foden Raphinha Mbuemo
                                      Jimenez Antonio Toney
                                      0.2itb

                                      Second appeals a lot, upgrading 2 low performers (2 pointers) and retaining a decent forward...
