Nordmann ute med skade, betryggende Salah-oppdatering, og bekymringsverdige uttalelser om Hazard.
Vi har samlet sammen det viktigste fra ukens pressekonferanser. Dette er de siste nyhetene fra de engelske klubbene:
“Not a great deal of change for Arsenal ahead of their PL clash with Liverpool. Guendouzi [suspended] is unavailable while Nacho Monreal, Hector Bellerin and Sead Kolasinac all face a late test.” – @BenDinnery
Alternativene ellers blant forsvarsspillerne i FPL er mange og gode. Et salg av Monreal eller Bellerin før møtet med Liverpool kan absolutt forsvares.
Howe: “We’re okay for team news. Josh King will definitely miss out, which is a blow.” – @AFCBournemouth
Howe: «Joshua King will definitely be out again for this game, he’s not going to be ready. It’s not a long-term injury but Joshua is disappointed to miss out and is fully focused on his recovery.» – @BenDinnery
Bournemouth går inn i et tøffere kampprogram, og det anbefales å beholde det man eventuelt måtte ha av offensive spillere hos “The Cherries, men King kan være verdt å selge før Manchester United-kampen.
Hughton: «Pascal Gross will miss Saturday – but we’re confident he’ll be back after the international break. He’s close but he’s not back in training yet – he’s done some really good rehab.” – Sky Sports
“Sarri asked if Hazard is fit: ´I don’t know. Yesterday he had a big part of the training with the team. Maybe he won’t be able to play for 90 mins… but maybe he can play for 40, 45 mins´” – Liam Twomey (ESPN)
Sarri: «He has great quality, technical quality. He has great quality from the physical point of view, & he improved from the tactical point of view. So he’s becoming a very, very important player for us – not only for us, but also for England I think” – Liam Twomey (ESPN)
Hazard var et hett kapteinsalternativ før disse uttalelsene fra Sarri. Nå heller det mer mot Agüero, Sterling, Salah og eventuelt andre som vurderes. Den mest kjøpte spilleren før runden, Barkley, får lovord fra sjefen. Mye tyder på en startplass mot Crystal Palace for engelskmannen.
Hodgson: «McArthur, Zaha and Kouyate had knocks so didn’t travel to ‘Boro, but all have recovered well. Benteke and Ward are still recovering. Wickham has a new thigh strain which will keep him out, unfortunately.» – @BenDinnery
Hodgson: “Wilf jarred his shoulder on a fall, which is quite painful, but there was never any question that he wouldn’t be fit for Sunday. He trained with everybody today.” – @CPFC
“Everton injury news: Silva says there is a «small problem» with Jagielka and Kenny. Both not available for weekend’s game.” – Phil Kirkbride (Liverpool Echo)
“Silva on Richarlison playing as No9: ´He has some things to improve, which is normal. It is not something he did in the last two seasons. But he can give important things for us.´” – Phil Kirkbride (Liverpool Echo)
Virker som Richarlison fortsetter som Evertons fremste mann.
“Jamie Vardy says this has been the most difficult week of his life following the death of Leicester owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.
The striker has also told Sky Sports News he and his team-mates will travel to Thailand for the funeral, which will begin on Saturday. ´It will be massively important,´ Vardy said when asked if players will attend the funeral.
´That’s how we are – we are a close-knit group. We are one big family and one of the main reasons for that is Vichai – for us to be there is massively important.´” – Sky Sports
Leicester er inne i en tung periode utenfor banen. Spillerne bestemte at kampen mot Cardiff skulle spilles.
Klopp: «Mo, yeah, it’s nothing really serious it’s a kind of inflammation of the tendon. It was just protection. The pictures you saw were only protection.» – Sky Sports
Heldigvis for Salah-eiere er egypteren kampklar. Kan vurderes som kaptein i kjølvannet av nyhetene rundt Hazard.
“Klopp confirms Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita [both hamstring] are ruled out of the trip to Arsenal. The pair should return to full training within the next few days.” – Physioroom
“Manchester City confirm that Kevin De Bruyne will be out for between five and six weeks with a knee ligament injury.” – Fantasy Scout
Skadeproblemene tar ikke slutt for belgieren. Lagoppstillingen i torsdagens ligacupkamp var positiv for de fremste FPL-alternativene hos de lyseblå. Agüero skiller seg litt ut som det fremste kapteinsalternativet denne runden.
Guardiola: “Laporte is strong and physical, he has a good personality and the arrogance to play at a high level. He’s fresh for us because he has not been selected for the national team. But he is a young player and we are so satisfied at his level so far.” – @ManCity
Laporte virker som det tryggeste kortet i forsvarsrekka hos Manchester City.
“Gundogan is training with the team but he is still not 100%. Otamendi still has a little problem. He’s not training but he is strong and maybe tomorrow he’ll tell me he’s ready.” – @ManCity
Mourinho: “Jesse and Alexis are in a much better position than last week. Last week was an effort from them to be available to help the team. But now it is a different story. Now, Alexis and Lingard are after one good week of work with the team. They are ready to play really.” – Sky Sports
Mourinho: “Available, but not yet at a good level [of fitness].» – @BenDinnery
“Mark Hughes confirms Pierre-Emile Højbjerg is fit for the trip to the Etihad after missing the 0-0 bore-draw with Newcastle through illness.” – @BenDinnery
“Dier and Rose, thigh and groin respectively, are unlikely to return before the international break. Wanyama [knee] is the latest addition to the Tottenham treatment room. Jan Vertonghen [hamstring] remains a long-term absentee.” – Fantasy Scout
“A hamstring injury is expected to keep Deeney out for a third successive match. ´Troy is training but out of the team at this moment. We’ll see tomorrow, but it’s difficult for him to be available for the next game.´” – @BenDinnery
“Jose Holebas and Christian Kabasele are hoping to force their way back into the starting XI, but Javi Gracia could once again name an unchanged side after Craig Cathcart managed to shake off a minor knock.” – @BenDinnery
Deeneys skade er “positive” nyheter for de som har valgt å handle inn Success til småpene 4.5 millioner.
Pellegrini: «Aaron Cresswell has recovered from the injury that caused him to miss the last game [Carabao Cup], but we don’t have any other new injuries.» – Fantasy Scout
