Bruno, Trippier, Martinez: The early Gameweek 37 team news

THIS ARTICLE HAS BEEN SUPERSEDED BY FRIDAY’S PRESS CONFERENCE ROUND-UP – CLICK HERE FOR THE LATEST GAMEWEEK 37 TEAM NEWS

We’ve got the early team news for Double Gameweek 37 in this article, although fresh updates are in short supply.

We’ll get more Fantasy Premier League (FPL) injury news on Thursday and Friday when the pre-match press conferences take place.

But before then, this initial rundown gives an overview of all 20 Premier League sides.

ARSENAL

The Gunners have no known concerns heading into Sunday’s clash at Old Trafford.

Jurrien Timber, who has now featured for the under-21s twice to build up match fitness, still hasn’t featured in the first-team squad despite recovering from a knee injury.

ASTON VILLA

We’ve heard from Unai Emery this evening ahead of Villa’s UEFA Europa Conference League clash with Olympiacos.

The Villa boss confirmed that Emi Martinez (hamstring) would travel to Greece, with a late call to be made on whether he will start or not.

Martinez was seen in training images earlier today, as was long-term absentee Emi Buendia (knee).

Jacob Ramsey (foot), Tyrone Mings (knee) Boubacar Kamara (knee) remain out, however.

Doubts remain over Youri Tielemans (groin), Nicolo Zaniolo (unknown) and Morgan Rogers (unknown), who either sat out Gameweek 36 or were injured during it. None of them were sighted in the aforementioned training gallery.

BOURNEMOUTH

Lloyd Kelly was the latest victim of a sickness bug that had been sweeping the Cherries camp in the last month or so. He missed out in Gameweek 36 but Andoni Iraola hopes he can be back for the Brentford game.

There was also optimism from Iraola that Marcus Tavernier (hamstring) and Tyler Adams (back) may make an appearance.

Milos Kerkez serves the final game of a three-match ban, while Ryan Fredericks (calf), Luis Sinisterra (hamstring) and Chris Mepham will likely remain out.

BRENTFORD

Kristoffer Ajer suffered a facial injury in the draw with Fulham but Thomas Frank was hopeful that it wasn’t a serious issue.

There’s good news on Mathias Jensen, too. He missed out in Gameweek 36 but Frank said he would have played had it been “a play-off final or a Champions League final”.

Long-term absentees Rico Henry (knee), Josh Dasilva (knee), Ben Mee (ankle) and Aaron Hickey (hamstring) remain out.

BRIGHTON AND HOVE ALBION

Adam Lallana was added to the Brighton injury list last week, making it nine Albion assets on the sidelines.

Of those, Pervis Estupinan (calf), Evan Ferguson (ankle), Jack Hinshelwood (foot), Solly March (knee) and Kauro Mitoma (back) are unlikely to feature again this season.

James Milner (muscle) and Tariq Lamptey (unknown) didn’t recover for the clash with Aston Villa on Sunday, with no timelines on their returns.

Jan Paul van Hecke (hamstring) has been an absentee in the last two Gameweeks, with Roberto De Zerbi initially unsure how long he’d be out. Dutch media suggest he’s unlikely to play in what remains of 2023/24 but it’s unclear how reliable this is.

BURNLEY

Aaron Ramsey (knee), Nathan Redmond (leg), Ameen Al-Dakhil (unknown) and Jordan Beyer (muscle) are likely out for the season.

Vincent Kompany previously suggested that Luca Koleosho (knee) could yet play a part in the current campaign, so we await the latest from the Burnley boss on him.

News is also awaited on Maxime Esteve, who appeared to sustain a knock in Gameweek 36.

CHELSEA

Chelsea’s fitness situation has improved in the last week, with Malo Gusto, Levi Colwill, Thiago SilvaAxel Disasi, Raheem Sterling and Christopher Nkunku recovering to make the matchday squad in Gameweek 36.

Reece James (hamstring), Lesley Ugochukwu (hamstring) and Robert Sanchez (illness) weren’t involved but they could be the next ones to recover, having been described as in “partial team training” in the last injury bulletin the club published a week ago.

Carney Chukwuemeka (knee) has since been sighted on the grass, too.

Romeo Lavia (thigh), Wesley Fofana (knee) and Enzo Fernandez (groin) are out for the season, while Ben Chilwell (knee) remains on the injury list.

CRYSTAL PALACE

Jefferson Lerma (hamstring) is nearing a return to fitness but may not be risked this weekend. A Gameweek 38 comeback instead looks likelier.

Sam Johnstone (elbow), Matheus Franca (groin) and Cheick Doucoure (Achilles) will likely remain out, while an update is awaited on Rob Holding (hamstring) after he missed the last three matches.

EVERTON

Vitalii Mykolenko (ankle) and Nathan Patterson (hamstring) won’t kick a ball in what remains of 2023/24, while Dele (groin) remains sidelined.

FULHAM

Fulham have had a mostly fit squad since the March international break but Harrison Reed missed out in Gameweek 36, having sustained a knock in the previous game.

Tosin Adarabioyo isn’t injured but he has been omitted from the matchday squad in the last fortnight, amid speculation on his future. Marco Silva insists he remains available for selection, however.

LIVERPOOL

Ben Doak (knee), Thiago Alcantara (muscle) and Joel Matip (knee) remain out but Diogo Jota (hip) might not be far away from a return, based on the previous short-term estimate from his manager. 

He was not in team training as of last Friday, however.

LUTON TOWN

Issa Kabore (ankle), Dan Potts (hamstring), Mads Andersen (calf), Amari’i Bell (hamstring), Jacob Brown (knee), Marvelous Nakamba (knee) and Tom Lockyer (health) have all been on the sidelines of late.

Chiedozie Ogbene (hamstring) is thought to be the nearest Hatter to a return, having been on the grass since the end of April.

Andersen and Potts may feature before the end of the season but the others will not do so.

MANCHESTER CITY

The City team news is nice and straightforward: not one of their players is currently flagged with an injury.

MANCHESTER UNITED

There was no further news on Bruno Fernandes (wrist) in the aftermath of Monday’s hammering at Selhurst Park.

However, Fernandes wasn’t sighted in training ground images on Thursday. We should get an update on the Portuguese midfielder from Erik ten Hag on Friday.

In better news, Marcus Rashford (unknown) and Lisandro Martinez (calf) were spotted in the training gallery.

Of Manchester United’s other injured players, there is only Tyrell Malacia (knee) and Harry Maguire (wrist) who are confirmed as out for the season.

Willy Kambwala (unknown), Raphael Varane (muscle), Luke Shaw (muscle) and Victor Lindelof (hamstring) are among the names who could still play some part in 2023/24. Either that, or the Red Devils haven’t told us the full extent of their injuries.

Anthony Martial (groin) has even returned to training in the last week.

Scott McTominay missed out on Monday after hyperextending his knee in the previous game but was expected back in training at the weekend.

NEWCASTLE UNITED

Jamaal Lascelles (knee), Sven Botman (knee), Joe Willock (Achilles), Matt Targett (Achilles) and Lewis Miley (back) are out for the season, while Sandro Tonali is banned until August.

Eddie Howe said last Friday that Fabian Schar also looks set to miss the rest of 2023/24 with a hamstring injury, although the defender himself has suggested there is still a chance of him playing a part.

Kieran Trippier (calf) was pictured in team training by Sky Sports News on Wednesday, so he could well be back in Gameweek 37.

NOTTINGHAM FOREST

Neco Williams (hamstring) is the only known concern for Nottingham Forest, and the prospects of him featuring in Gameweek 37 don’t look great.

SHEFFIELD UNITED

Oli McBurnie (hamstring), George Baldock (calf), Max Lowe (ankle), Rhys Norrington-Davies (hamstring) and Chris Basham (leg) were all still sidelined in Gameweek 36.

McBurnie, initially ruled out for the season, could yet play a part on the final weekend.

Tom Davies (hamstring), John Egan (leg) and Daniel Jebbison (illness) have been back on the grass recently but may be held back for next season. 

Jebbison got 45 minutes for the under-21s earlier this week.

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR

Timo Werner (hamstring), Ben Davies (hamstring), Destiny Udogie (thigh), Manor Solomon (knee), Fraser Forster (foot) and Ryan Sessegnon (hamstring) are out for the rest of the season.

It is believed that Spurs do not have any serious new concerns from Sunday’s defeat to Liverpool.

WEST HAM UNITED

Konstantinos Mavropanos (unknown) and Nayef Aguerd (ankle) remained out last weekend, despite David Moyes saying the former “had a chance” of facing Liverpool two weeks ago.

Reports suggest Kalvin Phillips’ season is over, meanwhile.

WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS

Tommy Doyle returns, having been ineligible to feature against his parent club in Gameweek 36.

Mario Lemina was taken off with hamstring tightness at the weekend but Gary O’Neil says the withdrawal was more precautionary in nature.

The midfielder’s brother, Noam Lemina, is back in training after a hamstring injury.

Pedro Neto (hamstring) has been back in team training for a while and was technically available for selection in Gameweek 36, but was held back from the matchday squad to give him an extra week of recovery.

Craig Dawson (groin) and Leon Chiwome (ankle) are out for the season.

    So the big winner from last season's Spurs team is Harry Winks.

    Neuer gifts the cl to real Madrid.
    Time for him to retire. Terrible gk now

    1. F4L

      1. M♤rvin

        No.

        1. F4L
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          tbf he made 2 very good saves before the error

          1. jacob1989
            • 2 Years
            1 month, 8 days ago

            How does it matter? He still gift wrapped the cl to real Madrid.
            Those 2 saves he made look more spectacular than it was

            1. F4L
              • 9 Years
              1 month, 8 days ago

              you're not wrong

  3. AYLD28
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    Vicario or Petrovic?

    Which keeper is stronger for the final 3 games?

    1. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Spurs is worse

    Once again great implementation of VAR in European competitions, no nonsense and proper technology.

    Since it’s beginning in 2018, I feel international competitions have used it much more wisely than the Premier League referees.

    1. Biggsy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      It's almost like it's the people that are the problem and not the technology....

    2. Ginkapo FPL
      • 12 Years

      Its a lot easier when everything is a foul

      1. Pariße
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        So you suggest England has a cultural problem?

        1. Ginkapo FPL
          • 12 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          I didnt say England did.

          When any contact is considered a foul, no matter how slight, are you really playing football?

    3. F4L
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      prem refs just dont like calling each other out. mike dean's comments early in the season about that were damning and nothing even happened about it

      1. Pariße
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Good mates. Only Clattenbrug was beefing everyone after he left.

    4. panda07

      It was implemented in Europe before the PL and worked well but in true Lionheart fashion the PL decided, we invented football, we're going to do it our own way!

    5. Hairy Potter

      Well apart from the howler by VAR to award a penalty to PSG against Newcastle earlier in the season.

      1. jacob1989
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Yes psg should never have reached knockouts

  5. F4L
    • 9 Years

    1. F4L

      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Disgraceful neuer and tuchel.
      The latter for mindless and needless substitutions.

  6. panda07

    This article should be titled "More lies from Eddie Howe"

  7. Pariße
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    And here I think a mistake by the linesman. Too early with the flag.

  8. Isco Disco

    Hala Madrid!
    Into the finals and hopefully the 15th UCL coming soon.
    What a game and what an incredible comeback!
    Joselu deserves a 4 year contract for what he has done today. MVP!

    1. x.jim.x
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Madrid were 50/1 in the 85th minute - absolute banker.

  9. Isco Disco
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Another trophyless season for Kane.
    Poor guy is crying

    1. x.jim.x
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Leave him at home and we win the Euros. Perennial loser, generational underachiever.

      1. Feanor
        • 15 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Southgate will have Mount, Phillips and Henderson ready to go

        1. x.jim.x
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Barely fit Trippier playing left back, let’s gooo

        2. Magic Zico
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Sterling and Maguire to join in

      2. jacob1989
        • 2 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        He cant do much if neuer commits a howler and the coach subs him out at a crucial stage.
        Had he stayed they would have scored in the counterattack which aging Mueller couldn't

        1. x.jim.x
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 8 days ago

          Lost the league cup to the cans
          Lost the league for the first time in a decade
          Out of the CL while their rivals are in the final

          But yeah Neuer’s fault

  10. jacob1989
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Rm always find a way in last 5 mins of a game. Rodrigo vs man city 2 years ago. Now joselu.
    Jeez i cant believe the terrible error by neuer. It was a nothing but hopeful shot by vinicius

  11. Crunchie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years

    I honestly think that BM goal was onside o my first reaction

    1. x.jim.x
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      My head would have been on the moon if that happened to me, horrific officiating

      1. Crunchie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        it was

    2. nerd_is_the_werd
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Ref was way too hasty with the flag, not abiding by the rules which is to keep it up on borderline decisions!
      Hard to say whether it would've resulted in a goal due to the whistle being blown, but we'll never know....

  12. The-Red-1
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Would you FH this team and sort out the defence? Have taken a -4.
    Means no FH in 38 and therefore no Liverpool players without hits that week...

    Vicario (Henderson)
    White Gabriel Gusto (Ait Nouri Zabarnyi)
    KDB Son Foden Palmer (Havertz)
    Haaland Isak Jackson

  13. Baines on Toast...

    Taking Kane and Musiala off for Muller and Choupo Moting was insane. Threw in the towel there and then.

    1. jacob1989
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Yup insanity. Absolutely senseless.

    2. No Professionals
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      Kane is so good defending set pieces in his own box, it didn’t make any sense. Musiala was struggling with something though.

  14. liboo
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    Best nailed defender from Brighton??

    No enough funds for Dunk

  15. No Professionals
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 8 days ago

    What’s the biggest points margin that could realistically be overturned in the remainder of the fpl season?

    1. circusmonkey
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 13 Years
      1 month, 8 days ago

      30 points but that needs major luck.

      1. Gandalf
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 13 Years
        1 month, 8 days ago

        Def higher than that possible

    2. BobbyDoesNotLook
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 7 days ago

      If same chips I would say max 50. Realistically 30 is very doable.

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

    what would u do?
    Petrovic
    Walker Burn Gusto
    Son Foden Palmer Gordon Bruno
    Halland Isak
    Pickford Watkins Gabriel Maguire
    1 Free transfer 1.8m

    A-Maguire and Watkins to Romero and J Pedro -4
    B-Maguire, Watkins and Gusto to Romeo, Jackson and Branthwait -8
    C-Maguire to Romero no hit
    BB will be played
