2pm team news: James injured as West Ham ring the changes

Double Gameweek 34 of Fantasy Premier League (FPL) continues on Sunday, with Brighton and Hove Albion v Southampton, Burnley v Wolverhampton Wanderers and Chelsea v West Ham United kicking-off at 14:00 BST.

The big FPL team news comes from Stamford Bridge, where Reece James misses out through injury.

Malang Sarr, Andreas Christensen and Romelu Lukaku also drop out from the side that lost to Arsenal in midweek, with Thiago Silva, Trevoh Chalobah, Jorginho and Kai Havertz coming in.

Antonio Rudiger is absent because of an ongoing groin injury.

For the visitors, David Moyes makes six changes with one eye on Thursday’s Europa League semi-final.

Declan Rice, Jarrod Bowen and Michail Antonio are among those who sit out, while defenders Kurt Zouma, Issa Diop and Angelo Ogbonna are all unavailable through injury.

Brighton welcome back Leandro Trossard after a brief illness saw him miss the midweek trip to Manchester City, while Adam Webster and Neal Maupay also feature.

Yves Bissouma, meanwhile, serves the final game of a two-match suspension.

Ralph Hasenhuttl makes six changes with Armando Broja benched.

Mohammed Salisu, Tino Livramento, Nathan Redmond, Nathan Tella, Shane Long and Che Adams are the ones who come into the starting XI.

Burnley remain without the injured quartet Ashley Westwood, Erik Pieters, Ben Mee and Johann Berg Gudmundsson, and make just one change from their Gameweek 33 win over Southampton.

Ivory Coast forward Maxwel Cornet misses out – not even making the squad with a ‘niggly knee’ – and is replaced by Matej Vydra.

For Wolves, Raul Jimenez returns after completing a two-game suspension, with Romain Saiss, Nelson Semedo and Leander Dendoncker also coming into Bruno Lage’s XI.

Max Kilman, Ruben Neves and Daniel Podence miss out through injury.

    I own Wood, James, Broja, Amartey & Doherty… season over!

    Do you guys play fantasy formula 1? It's pretty good...

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      I don't. How does it work? Can see how it'd be interesting.

      1. Bobby Digital

        2 months, 13 days ago

        You have 100m and pick five drivers and one team. Captains get double pts every week and there's wildcards and triple caps twice a season.

          How much does a Verstappen/Hamilton/LeClerc cost?

          1. Bobby Digital
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 13 days ago

            Verstappen and Hamilton are like 30m... Whereas Leclerc and Sainz are under 20m.

        2 months, 13 days ago

        Haven't watched since Schumacher retired tbh. I watch some highlights now and again, but as you say boring.

        • 4 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        FPL makes football interesting for me. Especially mid/low table games.

    That Liveramento injury looked bad

    1. Danno - Emre Canada

    Chelsea coming out for the second half looking a little like Dillian White energy in the ring!

    2. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    3. JBG
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Because of 10min cameo and red card?

  6. DALEDOBACK
    • 2 Years

    2. thegaffer82

      No. Nobody can 😉

    3. Botman and Robben
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      That is hard to beat.

  7. thegaffer82
    • 10 Years
    2 months, 13 days ago

    Did Tuchel/Chelsea give any indication on the severity of James’ injury?

    Any chance he makes the 2nd game? My bench is a sea of zero’s 🙁

    1. JBG
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Seemed minor from comments.

  8. Rainer
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    The rumours must have come from hopeful Everton fans 😀

    1. Wild Rover
      • 11 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      If you know something, why don’t you just share it?

      1. Nightcrawler
        • 3 Years
        2 months, 13 days ago

        Exactly

    2. JBG
      • 4 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      I feel like these kind of "predicted" lineups are always troll attempts. Even though I would love if it were true this time.

  9. Scots Gooner
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    Chelsea are so one dimensional. Play out to the wing, cross. Play out to the wing, cross.

    Boring and easy to defend against.

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      Cross and inshallah!

    2. Nightcrawler
      • 3 Years
      2 months, 13 days ago

      They've managed nearly 70 goals this season. Obviously they're not easy to defend against
