FPL Daily: Spurs suffer Son injury blow, Dennis latest, Coutinho joins Villa

We round up the key Fantasy Premier League (FPL) talking points of the day in FPL Daily, a series that serves non-Premier League matchdays and days when we don’t bring you a team news/press conference round-up.

CONTE REVEALS SON INJURY ISSUE

Mendy injury latest as Chelsea defence impresses again 5

In his pre-match press conference ahead of Sunday’s FA Cup tie against Morecambe, Antonio Conte revealed that Son Heung-min (£10.7m) picked up a muscle injury in his leg against Chelsea on Wednesday, which could potentially keep him out of action until the end of the month.

“It was a strange situation. Against Chelsea I made two substitutions together, Lucas Moura and Son. Not for injury, their sub, but to try to give them 15 minutes of rest. The day after, Son felt a bit of pain in his muscle, in his leg and he had a scan. Now we have to make the right evaluations from the doctors. He’s an injury. I don’t know but probably they could stay without training session until the end of this cycle, before the international break.” – Antonio Conte

A new quote then emerged on the official website:

“We’re a bit disappointed for Sonny, because after the game against Chelsea, the day after, he felt a bit of pain in his leg. He had a scan and, probably, he will miss two weeks.” – Antonio Conte

If Son is indeed out until February, he will miss Tottenham Hotspurs forthcoming double against Arsenal and Leicester City, plus their Gameweek 23 clash at Chelsea.

Conte also offered updates on a host of other players including Harry Kane (£12.2m), who he is hoping to rest this weekend:

“Ryan (Sessegnon) is okay, and available for the game on Sunday. For sure, this could be a good opportunity to see him again. That’s good news for us.

Eric Dier had a training session with us today. That’s more good news. He missed Chelsea because he was ill. Today, he had a training session, and he’s available for the game on Sunday.

I have spoken with Steven (Bergwijn) today, and he’s solving the problem in his calf. I think, very soon, we’ll see him with the team.

Cristian (Romero) is improving a lot. Now, we are trying to bring him to a good (level of) fitness. He’s working a lot with our physical coach. We need a bit of patience, it was a big injury, but now he’s working very well. He will be very important when he’s okay again physically.

Honestly, I think Harry (Kane) played six games in 17 days and I think if I have the possibility, I think that it is right to give him a bit of rest. Also, after this game before the break of the international team we have four very difficult games, Chelsea, Arsenal, Leicester and Chelsea again.” – Antonio Conte

DENNIS “PRESERVED FOR NEXT MATCHES”

Mbeumo delivers as Dennis maintains fine form: FPL notes from Brentford v Watford 2

Emmanuel Dennis (£6.1m) looks set to miss Watford’s trip to Leicester City in the FA Cup on Saturday.

The Nigerian was withdrawn at half-time in Double Gameweek 21 and is unlikely to be risked as he is still struggling with a slight knock.

However, it isn’t expected to keep him out of their forthcoming double.

Look, Emmanuel (Dennis) took a kick in the match against Tottenham, then I prefer to preserve him for the next matches.” – Claudio Ranieri on Emmanuel Dennis

INJURY PROBLEMS MOUNT FOR RODGERS

Lukaku injury latest as Rodgers addresses Leicester’s poor form 2

Brendan Rodgers has suggested Leicester City could potentially be down to eight fit senior outfield players for this weekend’s FA Cup third round tie.

Luke Thomas (£4.3m) and Boubakary Soumare (£4.8m) are the latest players to be ruled out, while there are also doubts around Timothy Castagne (£5.3m) and Kieran Dewsbury-Hall (£4.4m).

Worryingly, Rodgers also confirmed that Jamie Vardy (£10.4m) and Jonny Evans (£5.4m) are set for extended spells on the sidelines:

“It could be up to eight weeks (for Vardy). It’s the higher end of his hamstring, so you’re looking into March. He doesn’t need an operation, that was the only good news.

Jonny Evans has just had an operation so he will be April. With his hamstring, he’s needed that.”

There is better news for James Justin (£4.9m), however, with the full-back set to begin his comeback for the U23s on Saturday.

OTHER TEAM NEWS

Jimenez ends goal drought as Arsenal claim convincing north London derby win 7

Ralf Rangnick has confirmed that Victor Lindelof (£4.8m) is back in training, but he is still unsure on Harry Maguire’s (£5.4m) availability ahead of Monday’s FA Cup tie against Aston Villa:

“Victor (Lindelof) is back in training, since yesterday, which is very good news for us.

Harry (Maguire) hasn’t been able to train, as yet, and we have to wait and see how this develops, tomorrow or the day after tomorrow. With Harry, there is still a question mark but Victor will definitely be available for the game on Monday.”

At Norwich City, Dean Smith spoke to the media prior to his side’s trip to Charlton Athletic on Sunday and had some positive news on the injury front:

“The squad is looking healthier. We have got five or six back. We are looking at Milot Rashica who is going to be back in training with us today and we will see how he is. Grant Hanley is also back, along with Tim Krul, Teemu Pukki, Max Aarons and Todd Cantwell.”

Elsewhere, Patrick Bamford (£7.7m) is likely to play on Sunday and Conor Gallagher (£6.1m) is “back in training”, but Ralph Hasenhuttl has confirmed that Tino Livramento (£4.3m) remains out:

“We have Tino Livramento and Will Smallbone, two players still out with injury. We have Kyle Walker-Peters with a new Covid case, Thierry Small and Che Adams to make it three Covid cases. Against Tottenham we had five but we still played and we are hoping to not get more cases but you never know, but at the moment we are without these players.”

DIGNE WANTS TO LEAVE EVERTON

Rafa Benitez has confirmed that Lucas Digne (£5.0m) has requested to leave Everton.

The Frenchman hasn’t featured since Gameweek 14 after a disagreement over tactics and his role in the team, with the Toffees’ already adding full-backs Vitalii Mykolenko (£5.0m) and Nathan Patterson (£4.5m) to their squad in this window.

“I have no explanation. If someone is happy or not happy, you are paid big money and have to perform. Modern football, maybe the stats and the priorities have changed and maybe people think about themselves before the team.” – Rafa Benitez on why Lucas Digne has requested to leave

NEW SIGNINGS

Aston Villa have signed Philippe Coutinho on loan from Barcelona for the rest of the season, with an option to buy for £33m in the summer.

The Brazilian joined the Spanish giants from Liverpool back in 2018 but has struggled for form at the Nou Camp and spent the 2019/20 season on loan at Bayern Munich, where he produced 11 goals and nine assists in 38 appearances across all competitions.

Coutinho, of course, played alongside Steven Gerrard when Liverpool almost won the league eight years ago, and the chance to reunite with his former captain hands ‘the magician’ an opportunity to re-ignite his career.

Elsewhere, Kieran Trippier has finally been unveiled as a Newcastle United player, and was subsequently priced up at £5.0m by FPL.

The signing of the England full-back is something of a reunion for both player and manager, with Eddie Howe signing him in 2012 during his time as Burnley boss.

Discussing the player, Howe said:

“He has leadership qualities and a winning mentality that will help us to succeed. On the pitch we have a technical player, a level of calmness on the ball and a top defender too, so I’m delighted with the signing.”

LIVERPOOL REOPEN TRAINING GROUND

After Thursday’s EFL Cup semi-final against Arsenal was postponed due to a Covid outbreak in the Liverpool camp, in a positive development, the Reds’ have since reopened their training ground.

In a short statement, Liverpool said:

“… after consultation with the relevant Public Health authority, operations have now resumed within the first-team set-up at the training ground. Assistant manager Peter Krawietz is currently taking charge of the team and leading preparations for Liverpool’s next fixture, which sees Shrewsbury Town visit Anfield in the Emirates FA Cup third round on Sunday.”

    If anyone has both free hits left, when are they planning to use them?

    1. Camzy
      • 11 Years
      19 days, 23 hours ago

      27 and 30.

      1. tommo1989
        • 5 Years
        19 days, 23 hours ago

        What’s significant about 27 and 30? Is 30 the one where half the games will be postponed due to FA Cup?

        1. Piksau
          • 7 Years
          19 days, 23 hours ago

          27 is the GW to be affected by Cup ties...and 30 is the most likely one to be affected due to DGWs

        2. Camzy
          • 11 Years
          19 days, 23 hours ago

          27 is a likely blank for Liverpool most likely right after I buy Salah back. Arsenal also could blank.

          30 or is it 31? Not sure but one of those weeks is the big blank week from FA Cup.

    2. Piksau
      • 7 Years
      19 days, 23 hours ago

      Just bit the bullet and used my 1st FH now...next week could see some shaking up in terms of postponements, injuries, etc

      1. tommo1989
        • 5 Years
        19 days, 23 hours ago

        I was all set to ignore the FH this week but now we’ve had the Son news (he was my captain) and I’m not sure Foden will start against Chelsea either

        1. Piksau
          • 7 Years
          19 days, 23 hours ago

          City have a reported outbreak...i pulled out my city players this GW...
          Was in the same boat as you up until the Son news...

          1. Camzy
            • 11 Years
            19 days, 22 hours ago

            Meh. Look at the team they fielded last week. They're fine.

            1. Camzy
              • 11 Years
              19 days, 22 hours ago

              *Last night.

    Crystal Palace: Butland, Ward, Guehi, Andersen, Mitchell, Hughes, Schlupp, Gallagher, Eze, Olise, Mateta.
    Subs: Matthews, Milivojevic, Clyne, Benteke, Edouard, Kelly, Riedewald, Wells-Morrison, Rak-Sakyi.

    A. Son > Fernandes
    B. Son + Antonio > Ronaldo + Maddison -4

    I think it's gonna be one of these two moves. Will wait and see if Maddison makes himself must have in the league as well as if United have figured some stuff out. Bruno has gotta start I think.

    1. Bavarian
      • 4 Years
      19 days, 23 hours ago

      A

    2. Piksau
      • 7 Years
      19 days, 23 hours ago

      Agree with you that Bruno should start. He has played less than 30 mins in the last 2 matches, and Utd were much better with him on the field, even though they lost.
      For this GW i would say Maddison is a great option, Tielemans also can get some good points.
      A -4 for Ronaldo/Kane is a good move since they will mostly start both games and high chances of attacking returns.

      1. Salan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        19 days, 23 hours ago

        Yes for Ronaldo/Kane. Since if without either/both of them, not easy to find a good captain.

    3. Salan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years
      19 days, 23 hours ago

      May be B but Kane.

      1. Camzy
        • 11 Years
        19 days, 22 hours ago

        I already have Kane. That's what's making a shift into double premium forwards in B somewhat unappealing...

    4. The White Pele
      • 4 Years
      19 days, 23 hours ago

      B

    5. Bubz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      19 days, 22 hours ago

      B

    6. CONNERS
      • 3 Years
      19 days, 22 hours ago

      I'm taking a punt on A rather than getting Ronaldo.

      This is mainly because I'm happy with my forwards (Antonio, King, Dennis) plus the the fact that there is a very limited choice of decent midfield options for the DGW.

      Bruno is also a good placeholder for Salah and saves having to shift funds back into midfield later.

      1. Camzy
        • 11 Years
        19 days, 22 hours ago

        Surprisingly, I'm doing some transfer planning and Fernandes being a placeholder compared to Kane is not much different at all. I'm still gonna need 2 FTs to get Salah.

        I'm actually leaning B atm. Fixtures are nicer for the overall team in B as well.

    7. Mozumbus
        19 days, 22 hours ago

        I have pretty similar question to resolve in the coming days.
        It comes down to this:
        Ronaldo or Antonio +4

    8. Junks
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      19 days, 23 hours ago

      Not happy with my squad at all, its a mess and only have two maybe three DGW players....

      1FT 1.4ITB
      Ramsdale Foster
      Alonso TAA Cancelo Nouri Duffy
      Saka Salah Bowen Foden Moura
      Watkins Antonio Pukki

      I have already used one of my FHs and would normally be inclined to WC but the DGW doesn't help that.... What would you do? WC, FH...???

      1. Casual Player
        • 1 Year
        19 days, 23 hours ago

        You might be able to get away with Pukki to Dennis. 4-5 DGWers gonna be pretty standard

      2. Bertonian
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        19 days, 23 hours ago

        Would just take 1 or 2 hits to get yourself 2 or 3 more DGWers as you will need the other FH later down the line where it will bear you more fruit

      3. Junks
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        19 days, 23 hours ago

        Thanks both... Agreed WC doesn't feel right and more often than not the DGWs don't amount to much.

      4. TubThumper
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        19 days, 23 hours ago

        Alonso and Salah out. That will tide you over. It's a trappish DGW this one, no standouts. Hold firm with those you like long term.

        1. Junks
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          19 days, 23 hours ago

          So easy to get sucked into the DGWs but like you say there are definitely no stand outs........ Interesting you say Alonso out, can i ask why?

          1. TubThumper
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years
            19 days, 22 hours ago

            Chelsea aren't keeping clean sheets now and have blanks coming. More money in Alonso than Duffy.

            1. Junks
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              19 days, 22 hours ago

              Yeah fair shout thanks! Just seen its two blanks as well.... he's gone!

    9. JohannaAdams10
      • 2 Years
      19 days, 23 hours ago

      Who gets the most points next game week:

      A) Ronaldo (-4)
      B) Dennis

      1. AARON-1
          19 days, 22 hours ago

          Dennis for me. United are hardly breaking teams down with ease, and I think Villa will cause them problems at the other end. As odd as it may seem, the Watford attack is likely to frighten the opposition more than United's. Don't overlook Watford's more favourable fixtures either even though they are both away games - plus, after this double, they have Norwich. Dennis is a very good pick.

      2. The White Pele
        • 4 Years
        19 days, 23 hours ago

        DDG*
        Alonso* Cancelo TAA
        Son* Jota Gray Bowen
        Ronaldo* Dennis* Antonio

        Steele Bilva Coufal White

        1ft, 0.0 itb

        early thoughts is Son to Maddison as ft. would you do something else for a hit?

      3. ALI_G
        • 4 Years
        19 days, 23 hours ago

        I'm thinking Bruno is a good placeholder for Son whilst out

        Hold for 2GW or so and assess later. Looked quite threatening when he came on against Wolves, at some point surely he clicks

        1. Christina.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 11 Years
          19 days, 22 hours ago

          prefer maddi or tiele

        2. CONNERS
          • 3 Years
          19 days, 22 hours ago

          I'm getting him too.

          Seems a reasonable punt for 2-3 GWs until Salah returns.

      4. Moxon
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 7 Years
        19 days, 23 hours ago

        All this talk about free hits and wildcards is distracting everyone from the guaranteed 100 point chip strategy this week... triple captain the DGW hero that is Nick Pope!

        1. CONNERS
          • 3 Years
          19 days, 22 hours ago

          It wouldnt surprise me at all if the top scoring team for the GW had triple Burnley defence with TC on Pope.

        Good afternoon everyone!

        Hulking this for those that may have not seen it, Joe has recorded a Meet the Manager with the ever-modest creator of LiveFPL, Ragabolly. It's a fantastic interview and a great chance to hear from the man himself about his creation, and how far it's come from the early days where he used to tell us our ranks through messages on here.

            Oops. Yes I'm tempted by D. Could have been a BB option if Son was available. Perhaps I can keep him and hope he's back in good time. Cheers

        Son to

        A Maddison
        B Moura
        C KDB (ignoring double fixtures but with eye to run of fixtures from 23 and could still outscore many doublers in 22)
        D Foden (same reason)

        Better -4 option
        A) Kdb (can buy salah back easily)
        B) Kane (C)
        C) just do Son to Madison (C) without -4

        Anyone have any insight on A. Nouri?

        He was nailed before his injury... do we think thats still the case if he's fit? Many thanks.

        • 2 Years
        19 days, 22 hours ago

        Do people tend to agree that the decision for Watford striker is Dennis for safety King if you’re chasing?

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • 6 Years
          19 days, 22 hours ago

          Nah.

        2. AC/DC AFC
          • 6 Years
          19 days, 22 hours ago

          I'd go Dennis if I wanted to make up ground and maintain a lead too.

        3. Hits from the Bong
          • 3 Years
          19 days, 22 hours ago

          King for stats, Dennis for points

        4. CONNERS
          • 3 Years
          19 days, 22 hours ago

          I got both. (DGW then Norwich at home).

          Will probably shift one for Watkins in GW24.

        If I'm thinking of getting rid of Kane next week, should I just remove him this GW instead and get in Dennis?

        *Repost* Anyone have any insight on A. Nouri?

        He was nailed before his injury... do we think thats still the case if he's fit? Many thanks.

        Is either DCL or Antonio > Dennis worth a -4? They all have good fixtures but just think Dennis having two great fixtures makes him hard to ignore and most in my mini league have him

          I don't like taking hits that could easily backfire. I think I will keep them both and sell Kane for him next week.

            Surely if your getting Kane it’s this week? After this week he has tough fixtures

          Who is your 3rd forward? If Ronnie, then selling could be an option, but if you are at risk of wanting either Antonio or DCL back, then your transfer cost may rise to 8 pts.

            Yeah Ronaldo third forward and a bit of a differential in my mini league. Antonio hasn’t exactly been scoring massively so prob wouldn’t want him back. But leeds is a nice fixture for him

              Just the 2 goals and assist in last 3 games since I brought him back. As far as forwards in fpl this season, I wouldcsay I am pretty happy with his returns

              1. Feed tha Sheep
                • 9 Years
                19 days, 22 hours ago

                He has 7,5,5,
                Dennis has 1,7,9 and is much cheaper and an extra fixture. It’s close but point being I wouldn’t not sell Antonio because I would want him back because I have 2x FHs and WC so shouldn’t be a problem getting him back

                1. Top Mark.S

                  I am considering dennis but I am not selling antonio. So putting the two against one another only further confirms my thoughts you should have both. This is my read on antonio. People held him through his tough fixtures and are disappointed by his returns. They are letting this cloud their judgement on him. He is in the buy territory especially because others think he is a sell. I would buy the guy if I didn't have him. I certainly would not sell him if I did. Should i still get dennis? 100%

                    Would you have Antonio over DCL?

                    1. Top Mark.S

                      Yes and I am not sure it's that close even. Both have great fixtures. One has some form and plays in a better team. You would do well to convince me to keep dcl over antonio. Would be interested in the rationale if there is any. Again I own dcl

              Well... Antonio has had 3 consecutive returns. Do also look at his fixtures after MU. If fit, I would be very reluctant to sell him. Whu is better team than Watford. But on the other hand, I sold him early and just WC'd him in when Dennis was supposed to go to Afcon.

          I'm unlikely to do it for free, mostly because it's very likely I'll want DCL back, which is another FT or -4. In your case, that could be a -8, primarily for one extra game, but mitigated somewhat if you are wanting to captain him.

          Maybe selling Antonio is a better bet, so wait to see how he is against Norwich.

          1. Feed tha Sheep
            • 9 Years
            19 days, 22 hours ago

            Yeah would be more so Antonio than DCL I think. Antonio hasn’t exactly been running riot either but he has a great fixture so could def backfire

              After Nowich he has Leeds, Watford, Leicester, Newcastle. MU is the only more difficult fixture. Very difficult to hope for much better fixtures. I expect him to overscore Dennis if fit. Or think that probability for that to happen is more than 50%

            I agree. If he plays in midfield, does nothing and blanks, I can easily see myself hate transferring him out. If he is in form and braces, I forget dgw fever and will keep him.

          Good question. I don't believe that we can do anything more than guess. They have kept 3 clean sheets without him, which could be a worry.
