Gode nyheter for Manchester United-spiller, populær angriper ute til over nyttår og mulig skadeproblemer i Liverpool-forsvaret.
Vi har samlet sammen det viktigste fra ukens pressekonferanser. Dette er de siste nyhetene fra de engelske klubbene.
«He had back ache, now he is working with our physio. We are going to look when he can come with us. Tomorrow is the last training before, today he was working with a physio, running and touching the ball. Tomorrow is the decision.” – Fantasy Scout
Emery: «The worst news is the Rob Holding injury, the doctors think maybe it is a big injury but we are going to wait (to find out), it is his knee. Ramsey I think is a small injury but they showed us that afterwards every player responded with a good quality.» – Fantasy Scout
“Arsenal confirm that Rob Holding has ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament of his left knee and will be out for between six to nine months.” – Fantasy Scout
Billigspilleren i Arsenals forsvar bekreftes å være ute i flere måneder, mens det fortsatt er håp for Özil og Ramsey før helgens runde.
Hughton: «We’ll assess Glenn [Murray] in the morning. Today it wasn’t as bad as we thought. We’ll give him every opportunity to be fit. He went over on his shoulder but it’s not dislocated or anything. It’s a bit sore but better than what it could have been.» – Fantasy Scout
Hughton: “Glenn should train tomorrow (Friday) and we’ll go from there.
If Glenn Murray fails to recover then Andone is likely to start. «Florin has come in and got two goals in his first two starts – we’re really pleased for him because he’s put a lot of work – we have good competition there now.» – Ben Dinnery
35-åringen er usikker med skade, og plassen blir i tillegg truet av Andone som står med to mål på to kamper.
“Sean Dyche says that no fresh injuries were picked up in the game against Liverpool but Steven Defour is still under assessment.” – Fantasy Scout
“Neil Warnock when asked if Callum Paterson will continue up front: ´Gary Madine’s had a problem. We’ve got Danny Ward injured and Ken Zohore who’s had one day’s training, so I think that might answer your question.´” – Fantasy Scout
“Warnock also confirmed that Victor Camarasa would be on penalty-taking duties this week.” – Fantasy Scout
Kanskje den mest interessante midtbanespilleren i 4.5m-sjiktet har straffeansvaret i Cardiff-troppen.
“Maurizio Sarri reports that Chelsea have no serious injuries and every player is available for the match against Manchester City.” – Fantasy Scout
Sarri: «He played in all 14 matches in the Premier League but he didn’t play in the Europa League, he didn’t play in the cup. For me he is not tired. I want to see the last training and then I will decide.» – Fantasy Scout
«Emerson is a good option. I have to consider some details. For example, without Alonso, we could have problems at set pieces.» – Fantasy Scout
Sarri virker litt motvillig til å hvile Alonso, men spanjolen kan ende opp på benken om det er tegn til ryggplagene på fredagens trening.
“Roy Hodgson has reported no fresh injuries in the Crystal Palace team and has «the same squad of players» available for the trip to West Ham.” – Fantasy Scout
Silva: «Some small problems. Until now, nothing new. [Morgan Schneiderlin] is getting better, possibly he will be able to be part of the squad if I decide next match.» – Fantasy Scout
Virker som Everton stiller med fulltallig tropp før møtet med Watford på hjemmebane.
“´Everyone is in good condition´ following the 1-1 draw with Leicester City. Anguissa and Schurrle returned to the matchday squad on Wednesday – unused substitutes – while Kevin McDonald [hamstring] is working his way back to full fitness.” – Ben Dinnery
Scürrle var ubenyttet reserve i kampen mot Leicester. Fulham har riktignok ny manager, men det vil være noe overraskende om tyskeren benkes på nytt til helgen.
Wagner: «Hamid (Sabiri) unfortunately has broken his collarbone; he will be out for eight weeks. Everyone else apart from the suspensions are available. Chris Löwe trained the whole week with the team and could be back in the squad on Saturday.» – Fantasy Scout
“No Vardy. The Leicester striker is still recovering from a minor groin complaint. Puel hopes to have him back for the trip to Palace. ´We will see. I don’t want to push him too much. We have a lot of games and we need to be careful.´ Does not require surgery.” – Ben Dinnery
Formen har hanglet en stund nå for Leicester-angriperen. Fantasy-messig er det nok like greit å selge før et tøft juleprogram.
“Massive blow for Liverpool. Joe Gomez expected to be out for around six weeks. Fracture to his lower left leg.” – James Pearce (Liverpool Echo)
“Jurgen Klopp rules Dejan Lovren and Nathaniel Clyne out of Saturday’s match against Bournemouth. Dominic Solanke will return to training on Sunday.” – Fantasy Scout
Klopp: «Sadio is now out [on the training pitch] and tries to run for the first time, so it doesn’t sound like he will be ready for tomorrow. Gini is nothing. He is fine. Andy Robertson is fine.» – Fantasy Scout
“Klopp on Trent Alexander-Arnold’s workload in December, with Joe Gomez absent: ´I have a plan. We will see what we will do, but we have still other options, of course. A lot of players who can play that position.´»
Klopp: «Robbo pretty much played most of the games in a very intense position so that’s why decided to given him eight hours off (versus Burnley)» – Fantasy Scout
“Klopp on Virgil van Dijk’s workload: ´It’s not the same intensity [as playing a string of games at full-back] but of course it’s not cool. But now especially with Joe out, Dejan not available, we don’t have to think too much about that.´” – Fantasy Scout
Gomez ute i seks uker. Det kan føre til at Alexander-Arnold blir hakket mindre rotasjonsutsatt, selv om Klopp påpeker at det finnes andre alternativer i troppen. Van Dijk virker forholdsvis fritatt for rotasjon for øyeblikket. Robertson er mest sannsynlig tilbake i startoppstillingen, mens kampen trolig kommer for litt tidlig for Mané.
“Pep Guardiola on Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne: ´Both cannot play tomorrow. Both will be back soon.´» – Fantasy Scout
“Guardiola offering little insight on how he will choose between Riyad Mahrez, Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane for the match against Chelsea: ´We choose for the best for the team.´” – Fantasy Scout
Agüero må stå over for tredje kamp på rad. FPL-managere må forvente benkeplass for en av Sterling, Sané og Mahrez – som vanlig.
“No mention of Antonio Valencia or Luke Shaw as part of Mourinho’s update. Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Eric Bailly and Anthony Martial will be assessed in training today. Young returns to the squad but Victor Lindelof and Alexis Sanchez will definitely miss out.” Ben Dinnery
Fortsatt usikkerhet om Martial vil starte mot Fulham.
“Juan Foyth (hamstring) and Kieran Trippier (groin) join Mousa Dembele (ankle), Erik Lamela (thigh), Davinson Sanchez (hamstring) and Victor Wanyama (knee) in being unavailable for the match against Leicester on Saturday.” – Fantasy Scout
Trippier sliter med en lårskade og utgjør et risikabelt valg før vi går inn i juleprogrammet.
Pellegrini: «Arnautovic has a muscle injury. He will probably be out for around one month. We know how important he is for this team. Wilshere is not 100% comfortable so he won’t be available, but I think it will just be for this game.» – Fantasy Scout
Pellegrini: «I’m pleased because he’s a player I brought in to this team. We know he’s a good striker. With Marko’s injury, we have Lucas in this position. We have Andy Carroll too. We hope he will play games in a row now.” – Ben Dinnery
Arnautovic sine bidrag er over for dette kalenderåret. Perez så frisk ut da han hjalp West Ham til en komfortabel seier mot Cardiff. Spørsmålet er om Perez vil starte kamp etter kamp med både lite tillit hittil i sesongen og konkurranse i form av Hernandez og Carroll.
