Hazard-oppdateringer, nye rotasjonsfarer og dårlig nytt for stjernespiller.
Vi har samlet sammen det viktigste fra dagens pressekonferanser. Dette er de siste nyhetene fra balløya, og denne vil bli oppdatert fortløpende i løpet av fredagen inn mot runde 13.
“Alexandre Lacazette will be assessed ahead of Arsenal’s tie against Vorskla on Thursday. Stephan Lichtsteiner is back in full training, while Laurent Koscielny
played 45 minutes of the under-23s’ match against Derby County on Monday.” – Fantasy Scout
Lacazette nærmer seg spilleklar. Spiller ikke Europa League for Arsenal – som stiller et rent B-lag.
“Chris Hughton reports that Brighton have no additional injury concerns ahead of the weekend. Alireza Jahanbakhsh remains out, while Dale Stephens is still suspended.” – Fantasy Scout
Murray til The Argus, lokalavisen i Brighton: «It was my right hamstring attachment to my knee, nothing too major. If I felt I couldn’t compete then I would have brought myself off. I felt okay. Everything’s fine. I trained today and I’ll train for the rest of the week.»
Både Murray og Ryan skal være skadefrie før helgens kamp mot Huddersfield.
Suspensjon og skader
“Jefferson Lerma must serve a one-match ban after collecting his fifth caution of the season against Arsenal. One potential replacement – Dan Gosling – faces a late fitness test due to a knee problem.” – PhysioRoom
Bournemouth har utfordringer sentralt på midtbanen – ikke optimalt før sesongen kanskje tøffeste oppgave mot Manchester City på bortebane.
“Sean Dyche confirms that Johann Berg Gudmundsson is back in contention for GW14. Ben Gibson and James Tarkowski both played in a behind-closed doors friendly on Tuesday.” – Fantasy Scout
Et av få aktuelle FPL-alternativer hos Burnley, Gudmundsson, er tilgjengelige før borteturen til Selhurst Park og oppgjøret med Crystal Palace.
Sarri: «Hazard is not a serious injury, I think. He will not be able to play tomorrow [v PAOK], but I think that we will be able to recover him for the next Premier League match.
25 days ago he had a back injury, now the ankle, so he has lost a lot of training. So it is normal that he isn’t at the top of his physical condition. He needs to have one week of training and a couple of matches to [recover] his best level.
I think that this week it’s useful for him to have [only] training [and not play v PAOK]. Of course, I think that he cannot play ten matches in 29/30 days. So sometimes he has to rest.» – Fantasy Scout
Belgieren selges over en lav sko og har allerede falt i pris denne uka. Hviles i torsdagens kamp, men mulighetene er absolutt til stede for at Chelseas stjernespiller stiller fra start mot Fulham til helgen. Og da kan det bli stygt. En vanskelig situasjon for Hazard-eiere.
Hodgson: “We don’t have any [new] injuries, other than the one to Christian. He’s making very good progress, as I said last time, but he can’t be considered for tomorrow. Scott and Connor have been training with us.” – @CPFC
“Silva says Lookman is ´doing more than enough to play in our starting XI´
Huddersfield” – Phil Kirkbride (Liverpool Echo)
«If Zanka is fit then he will be back in the starting XI again. I gave him some rest after playing for Denmark. He looks good and sharp.» – Fantasy Scout
Klopp: «The squad situation, not 100% sure at the moment. It was quite an intense game [v PSG] and we had a lot of knocks. It’s good that we have this one day more. Wednesday-Sunday will be enough to have a nearly fully fit squad.» – Fantasy Scout
Henderson er ute med suspensjon, ellers antyder Klopp en tilnærmet fulltallig tropp før Merseyside-derbyet.
“James Maddison returns after missing the Carabao Cup win over Saints because of suspension, but a leg injury threatens to rule Rachid Ghezzal out once again. Iborra will be assessed after picking up a knee injury at Brighton. Daniel Amartey [ankle] remains sidelined.” – @BenDinnery
“Harry Maguire [knee] looks set to miss out again, but there was better news regarding Vardy who has fully recovered from a niggling groin problem. The talismanic LCFC striker is poised to lead the line at against Watford after changing the game from the bench last time out.” – Ben Dinnery
Maddison sonet ferdig suspensjonen i ligacupkampen mot Southampton, og er dermed klar igjen etter utvisningen forrige helg. Leicester må trolig stille uten Maguire i midtforsvaret, men sjansene er gode for at Vardy tar plassen på topp fra start.
“Kevin De Bruyne could miss the next three Premier League fixtures as he continues his recovery from a knee ligament injury. A return against Hoffenheim in the UCL [Dec 12] would see the Belgian back within his initial RTP timeline of 5/6 weeks.” – Ben Dinnery
Rapporter tyder på at de tre kommende kampene går uten De Bruyne. Dermed er konkurransen fortsatt litt svekket for Bernando og David Silva.
På spørsmål om skadesituasjonene til Jesus, Gündogan og Bernando Silva: “I don’t know. We have training in a few hours and we will assess and see how they are.” – Manchester Evening News
«We are going to see in training but the doctors say he is much, much, much better. And of course he’s going to play a lot of minutes, lot of games in this period.» – Fantasy Scout
“Guardiola when asked if he will freshen the team up: ´Maybe, yeah. Because it was a really tough game and after this game we have another one in three days against Watford. That is the toughest period and everybody deserves to play and [they are] going to play.´” – Fantasy Scout
“Guardiola on whether Aymeric Laporte is one of his most important players: ´Yeah. Everbody is important but if we talk about minutes played and performance, then of course he’s important. He’s playing at a high level.”
Interessant pressekonferanse. Helgen kommer kanskje for tidlig for Jesus, men Pep forteller at brasilianeren vil få mye spilletid i desember. Pep hinter også til at laguttaket mot Bournemouth kan bære preg av rullering ettersom bortekampen mot Watford venter tre dager senere. Manageren skryter nok en gang av Laporte, og påpeker viktigheten av stopperens bidrag.
Mourinho: “He (Sanchez) has an important injury, I don’t want to risk by saying for how long he will be out but from the top of my experience I would say he is not playing this year.” – @Utdxtra
“Jose Mourinho confirms Alexis Sanchez out for a long time. Says he was screaming in pain when it happened. ´My experience, painful scream and way it happened. Long time. It is not a little muscular injury that he will be ready in a week or 10 days.´ More like six weeks.” – Simon Stone (BBC)
Problemene i United-trøya vil ingen ende ta for Sanchez. For Martial-eiere blir det en mindre konkurrent om den venstre vingplassen. Hvis seks uker stemmer, dreier det seg fort om ni FPL-runder.
“Jamaal Lascelles [shoulder], Mutõ [calf] and Karl Darlow [elbow] were all pictured on the training pitches today. Jonjo Shelvey – unused substitute at Turf Moor – continues to build fitness following his recent absence.” – Ben DinneryBenitez: «Paul Dummett is very close but not enough for this game. The others – Lejeune, Sterry, Lascelles, Shelvey, Muto – have all been training at least once. I have to decide the squad because I have almost everybody available.” – Fantasy Scout

Hughes: «We’re still missing Danny [Ings], we hoped to get him back on the grass at some point this week but it hasn’t been possible. We’re hopeful that the games next week…he’ll become an option again.» – Fantasy Scout
Dårlige nyheter for de som har vært tålmodige med engelskmannen.
“Erik Lamela [thigh] faces a late fitness test. Dembele [ankle], Wanyama [knee] and Sanchez [hamstring] will miss out. Looks like Sunday will come too soon for Tripper [groin]. ´In the final stages of his rehab.´” – Ben Dinnery
Pochettino: «When we started against Chelsea we were going to play 12 games in 40 days – that means we will play every three days. To do that, there’s no player – maybe the keeper – who can play in the 12 games.»
For så vidt ikke et overraskende sitat, men mer en advarsel til FPL-managere at samtlige lag vil preges av rullering i måneden som kommer.
Gracia: “Holebas has recovered from the calf injury that kept him out against Liverpool. “José is ready. He didn’t train the first day of this week, but the second he did and he is available.” – Fantasy Scout
Pellegrini: «Marko Arnautovic worked the whole week without any problems. He has one day more to recover for the game, but he’s OK. Marko is fit to play.» – Fantasy Scout
Pellegrini: «Unfortunately we have just one full-back [following the injury to Fredericks]. It’s impossible for Pablo, at his age, to play seven games in Dec, so we’ll see what we will do in that position. I repeat, Pablo cannot play seven games in December.» – Ben Dinnery
Pellegrini: «Andy Carroll is one step further forward than Wilshere because he played 45 minutes in the game against Brentford [plus] he was on the bench [vs Man City]. Both worked without problems this week so may be in the squad on Saturday.» – Ben Dinnery
Gode nyheter for Arnautovic-eiere. Østerrikeren ser ut til å starte på St. James´ Park til helgen. En skadefri Carroll kan dog etter hvert spise noen minutter av spilletiden til Arnautovic, men med skadehistorikken til førstnevnte er ikke det en stor bekymring helt enda.
Santo: «Aside from Jonny, all fit.» – Fantasy Scout
Lite skader å melde om fra Wolves-leiren, bortsett fra Jonny Otto som har opptrening etter skaden han pådro seg i landslagspausen.
