We’ve got the early team and injury news for all 19 Premier League clubs who are in action in Double Gameweek 37.
It has been updated after the midweek Premier League matches on Tuesday and Wednesday, with the press conference round-up on Friday superseding it.
Kieran Tierney (knee) and Thomas Partey (thigh) look set to miss the north London derby on Thursday and potentially the rest of the season but Mikel Arteta said he “thinks” Ben White (hamstring) will be back for the clash with Tottenham Hotspur, so the centre-half should be fit for Gameweek 37 barring any setback.
Steven Gerrard reported no fresh concerns ahead of Tuesday’s clash with Liverpool but Leon Bailey (ankle), Kortney Hause (abdomen) and Jacob Ramsey (groin) remained out of that match.
Ramsey has a “decent chance” of recovering for Gameweek 37, at least.
Ollie Watkins is now a minor concern following that defeat to the Reds, with Gerrard saying that the striker may have a “small injury”.
Saman Ghoddos (ankle), Ethan Pinnock (hamstring), Sergi Canos (hamstring), Zanka (muscle) and Frank Onyeka (ankle) were all on the sidelines for the win over Southampton. Pinnock and Canos could be back for Gameweek 37 and Ghoddos has had his protective boot removed but Zanka and Onyeka’s seasons are over.
BRIGHTON AND HOVE ALBION
Jakub Moder (knee) and Enock Mwepu (groin) are out for the season but Jeremy Sarmiento could be back in the running, as he is now past the 10-day prognosis for his “slight” hamstring injury.
Ben Mee (knee) and Johann Berg Gudmundsson (calf) won’t return for the weekend, while Ashley Westwood (ankle) and Matej Vydra (knee) have season-ending injuries.
Further news is awaited on James Tarkowski, who complained of hamstring tightness in Saturday’s defeat to Aston Villa, while Jay Rodriguez was absent for the second week running with a similar problem.
Callum Hudson-Odoi (Achilles/back) and Ben Chilwell (knee) were again absent in Gameweek 36, while N’Golo Kante was sidelined with a minor injury but is now back in training. Mateo Kovacic (knock) is the latest addition to the injury list, with Thomas Tuchel declaring him “unlikely” to be fit to face Liverpool in the FA Cup final – a match that takes place four days before the league fixture against Leicester.
Patrick Vieira confirmed that Vicente Guaita missed the 1-0 win over Watford through an unspecified injury, while Marc Guehi‘s availability for Gameweek 37 is in some doubt after he limped off with an ankle injury. Media reports suggest he won’t be out for too long, however.
Nathan Ferguson (muscle/match fitness) won’t feature again this season.
Andros Townsend (knee) and Nathan Patterson (ankle) are out for the season, while a Gameweek 38 appearance is probably the best that Yerry Mina can hope for after he picked up a calf injury on Sunday.
Ben Godfrey (thigh) and Donny van de Beek (groin) could return for Gameweek 37, however.
Crysencio Summerville (ankle), Stuart Dallas (leg), Adam Forshaw (knee) and Tyler Roberts (hamstring) are out for the season but Patrick Bamford (foot) is scheduled to return to full training this week and should feature by Gameweek 38 if not this weekend.
Luke Ayling and Daniel James will miss the run-in after being sent off this week, however, while Jack Harrison will be assessed for a “contusion” he picked up against Chelsea in midweek.
Wilfred Ndidi (knee) and Ryan Bertrand (knee) remain out for the long term, while Ricardo Pereira‘s season is also likely over after he missed the Everton game with a hamstring issue.
Wesley Fofana (muscle) was absent from the win over Norwich City as a precaution but will be fine for Gameweek 37.
Jurgen Klopp had a fully-fit squad going into Tuesday’s match against Aston Villa, with Roberto Firmino returning as an unused substitute after a foot problem.
Andrew Robertson was “rested” – and not injured – for that win at Villa Park but the Reds now have a minor concern over Fabinho, who limped out of the midweek game with a muscular issue.
Manchester City were hit by a triple defensive injury blow in the hours after the 5-0 win over Newcastle United, with Pep Guardiola confirming that Kyle Walker (ankle), John Stones (muscle) and Ruben Dias (muscle) were out for the season.
The City boss explained in the same update that Nathan Ake – an unused substitute on Sunday – was playing through an ankle niggle of late and isn’t fully fit himself.
Further bad news followed on Wednesday as Aymeric Laporte (knock) and Fernandinho (muscle) hobbled off; Guardiola claiming that it “doesn’t look good” for the pair.
Kieran Trippier (foot) and Callum Wilson (calf) made their long-awaited returns from injury on Sunday, with Fabian Schar (ankle) joining them on the bench.
Ryan Fraser (hamstring) is also now back in training but the seasons of Jonjo Shelvey (calf) and Joe Willock (knee) are over and Federico Fernandez has picked up a “slight” Achilles injury.
Ozan Kabak (hamstring), Adam Idah (ankle/knee), Andrew Omobamidele (back), Christoph Zimmermann (hip), Kenny McLean (toe), Mathias Normann (thigh) and Josh Sargent (ankle) were all ruled out of Wednesday’s match against Leicester, although we haven’t got a timeframe on Zimmermann or Normann. The rest are likely out for the season.
Tino Livramento (knee) is the only Southampton player on the sidelines at the time of writing: he was stretchered off in the two-all draw with Brighton and Hove Albion and has since been ruled out for the rest of 2022.
Matt Doherty (knee), Oliver Skipp (groin) and Japhet Tanganga (knee) are out until the end of the season, while Sergio Reguilon also remains on the injury list, with groin pain putting paid to his involvement in the last two Gameweeks.
We haven’t yet got a timeframe on the Spaniard’s recovery but, speaking on Tuesday, Antonio Conte was downbeat on the wing-back’s chances of featuring again in 2021/22.
Relegated Watford were hit by multiple injury blows ahead of Wednesday’s clash with Everton, with the Hornets firstly confirming that Imrân Louza (knee) was out for the season.
Roy Hodgson has cast doubt over whether Emmanuel Dennis (knee) and Ismaila Sarr (knee) will feature again this season, meanwhile.
Juraj Kucka (knee), Kwadwo Baah (international duty) and Nicolas Nkoulou (groin) all missed the visit of the Toffees, as did Cucho Hernandez (hamstring), who was back on the grass ahead of the relegation-confirming loss at Selhurst Park with the hope being that he may be back in action before Gameweek 38. Nkoulou should also be available this weekend.
Also newly available is Hassane Kamara after his suspension, while Joshua King (illness) Kiko Femenia (illness) and Tom Cleverley (ribs) are possibilities to feature in Gameweek 37.
WEST HAM UNITED
Angelo Ogbonna (knee) was the only West Ham player on the sidelines ahead of the thumping win at Norwich but the Hammers have three new concerns after Gameweek 36.
Michail Antonio (hip), Said Benrahma (ankle) and Craig Dawson (calf) all picked up injuries at Carrow Road but David Moyes was at least hopeful that the problems aren’t too serious.
Max Kilman (muscle) and Nelson Semedo (hamstring) are out until August, while Daniel Podence (toe) “still has some restrictions” despite a return to training and no date has been placed on his return.
