Tidlige Arsenal-bytter, rotasjonsfare i storklubber og billige keeperløsninger.
Vi har samlet sammen det viktigste fra rundens pressekonferanser. Dette er de siste nyhetene fra de engelske klubbene:
Emery: “Mustafi may also be close to training with us, but today he worked alone but with good feeling. Tomorrow is the last training before we travel to Liverpool and we need to know who can play in training.” – Fantasy Scout
“Emery on Mesut Ozil’s half-time substitution: ´For me, it is only tactically and not [down to the] player. Sometimes I change Aubameyang, sometimes I change Lacazette and sometimes I change Matteo.´» – Fantasy Scout
Emery forklarer hvorfor Arsenal-spillere kan byttes av til pause, noe som gjør spesielt Özil og Lacazette til risikable FPL-alternativer.
“Bournemouth confirm that Simon Francis has suffered a ruptured ACL and will miss the rest of the season.” – Fantasy Scout
“Simon Francis, Adam Smith, Dan Gosling and Lewis Cook (all knee) remain absentees for the Cherries trip to Old Trafford. No other injury concerns mentioned by Eddie Howe.” – Fantasy Scout
Bournemouth er inne i en svak periode. Mangler blant annet ledertypen, Francis, før borteoppgjøret med Manchester United.
“Hughton confirms Ryan will join Australia squad in the morning: ´We will miss him because he has been very good for us but we’ve also got two other, I think, very good goalkeepers. It’s an opportunity now for one of them.´» – Fantasy Scout
Hughton: «I’ll make the decision as to who replaces Maty [Ryan] this weekend.» – Fantasy Scout
Ryan bør erstattes, men Hughton avslører ikke hvilken Brighton-keeper som tar over hanskene mens førstevalget spiller mesterskap. Valget står mellom Button og Steele – begge prissatt til 4.0 millioner. Vi skal følge med for dere!
Warnock: «Zohore nicked his thigh and Paterson just did something to the side of this knee, so we’re running out of options really. Victor [Camarasa] couldn’t move his legs late on and the same with Junior [Hoilett].» – Fantasy Scout
“Etheridge will not be going to the Asian Cup. ´Neil wanted to stay and help us. He didn’t want to lose his place really. [Alex] Smithies is gutted! He bought him his ticket, I think, and [Brian] Murphy. We have three good keepers. We’re doing well in that department.´” – Ben Dinnery
Fåtallet som har Etheridge inne på laget trenger ikke å se etter en erstatter. Keeperen setter klubbkarrieren foran sjansene på landslaget.
“A hamstring injury is likely to keep Pedro out for around 10 days. Callum Hudson-Odoi suffered a similar problem at Vicarage Road – not as serious – but could miss out on Sunday.” – Ben Dinnery
“Sarri on Hazard’s position: ´I cannot see the problem with Hazard in this role. He played four games in this role & scored three goals & two assists [it’s actually three]´” – ESPN
Hazard blomstrer i spissrollen, og Sarri virker ikke å endre formasjon med det første.
“No new injuries for Palace. Christian Benteke is progressing following a minor setback, likely to return after the FA Cup. ´He’s the only one still unavailable, the rest [Wayne Hennessey and Martin Kelly] have recovered.´” – Ben Dinnery
Wan-Bissaka klar for ny legendekamp? Uansett et fantastisk FPL-alternativ fortsatt.
“Silva on Dominic Calvert-Lewin: ´I am happy with him but I want more, because he has the quality to give more to us as a team and to improve more. He has some specific skills I like in one striker. He started the last three matches because he deserves it.´” – Fantasy Scout
“Silva on the wing-back system: ´Yes it’s something we are now working more, something I’ve had in my mind since the pre-season. Was not the first time we did it, let’s see in the future if we do more times or not.´” – Fantasy Scout
Everton vartet opp med storseier i runden som var. Calvert-Lewin startet på topp, og selv om det er vanskelig å se for seg at angriperen truer plassen til Richarlison, kan det være at førstnevnte avlaster brasilianeren i en litt større grad enn tidligere i sesongen.
Digne leverer så det ryker og Silva hinter til at Everton kan bruke vingbackrollene i enda større grad fremover.
Ranieri: «Only Frank Anguissa is not ready. The rest are all available.» – Fantasy Scout
Puel: «No injuries. It is always difficult after two games, but I think all my players are ready to play and perform.” – Fantasy Scout
Klopp: «Milly is Milly that means he is again ahead of schedule. [But] he will not be available for tomorrow, hopefully the game after that.» – ESPN
“Klopp on Oxlade-Chamberlain: ´It is the best news. No pressure on him but maybe February back in normal training. Possibly March.´” – The Times
Positive nyheter for Liverpool. Det var lenge fryktet at Oxlade-Chamberlain skulle være ute hele sesongen, men ser ut til å kunne hjelpe de røde i sesonginnspurten.
Solskjaer: «Romelu [Lukaku], Anthony [Martial] and Alexis were [in] light [training] yesterday so hopefully they can join part of the training today and let’s see after they’ve come through.» – Fantasy Scout
Solskjær: «Marcos [Rojo] and Scott [McTominay] look like they can take part very soon as well, so it’s looking better. Smalling has got a sore foot, so I don’t think we’ll see him until the New Year anyway – maybe not even before Spurs.» – Fantasy Scout
Solskjær har hintet til at det vil bli rullering. Med trioen Lukaku, Martial og Sanchez tilgjengelig kan plassene til for eksempel Rashford og Lingard trues.
“Spurs report that Dele Alli (hamstring) will be assessed ahead of Saturday’s game against Wolves. Serge Aurier (groin) has returned to training, meanwhile.” – Fantasy Scout
«Dele yesterday was involved in the squad but after was out of the 18. But this morning he said to me, ‘Gaffer I’m going to be ready.’ I said, ‘Relax, you need to train this morning and then we’ll see tomorrow and assess you’». – Fantasy Scout
“Mousa Dembele (ankle) is in the final stages of rehabilitation, while Eric Dier (appendicitis) and Jan Vertonghen (thigh) continue with their own recoveries. Victor Wanyama (knee) has commenced on-field rehab, meanwhile.” – Fantasy Scout
“Pochettino on whether Erik Lamela may start against Wolves: ´Maybe. We need to assess him too because yesterday he wasn’t in his best to play. He was on the bench but we preferred after, when the game was 4-0 or 5-0, not to take a risk with him.´” – Fantasy Scout
Alli og Lamela er nøkkelord når det kommer til Sons spilletid. Sistnevnte er i en forrykende form – til tross for dette ligger rotasjonsspøkelses også over den livlige midtbanespilleren.
“West Ham United report that Pablo Zabaleta misses out tonight due to illness.” – Fantasy Scout
“Arnie has a chance for Sunday… Expect Balbuena to miss out.” – Ben Dinnery
Ingen offisielle meldinger om Balbuena, men det kan tenkes at kampen kommer i tidligste laget for midtstopperen.
“Nuno Espirito Santo says that Diogo Jota isn’t yet «100%» and won’t be in the squad against Spurs.” – Fantasy Scout
