The Hitlist: Gameweek 17 Injury & Suspension Round Up

Every week, Daily Fantasy Focus gives you the definitive lowdown on suspension, illness and injury in the Premier League. Here we round up the Hitlist for Gameweek 17.

Arsenal

Next Up:Manchester City (A)

The loss of Mustafi was glaring in Gameweek 16 as Arsenal were defeated by 2-1 away to Everton. The German international is scheduled to miss out until the new year with a hamstring injury. His loss could be keenly felt away for Manchester City this Sunday.

Injured: Mustafi, Mertesacker, Debuchy, Cazorla, Ramsey, Welbeck, Sanogo

Bournemouth

Next Up:Southampton (H)

Junior Stanislas is out for the next few weeks at least with an ankle issue, but the Cherries’ star striker Callum Wilson should feature in a Gameweek 17 derby with Southampton if he can shake off the head knock that saw him depart the field early against Leicester midweek.

Injured: Cook, Surman, Stanislas

50/50: Wilson

Burnley

Next Up:Tottenham Hotspur (A)

Tom Heaton returned to action midweek, but was unable to keep West Ham out despite his best efforts. Right winger, Johann Berg Gudmundsson now stands alone as the only first team injury absence at Turf Moor.

Injured: Gudmundsson

Chelsea

Next Up:  Crystal Palace (A)

Eden Hazard succumbed to a late injury prior to kick off against Sunderland in on Wednesday night and in doing so scuppered the plans of many a fantasy manager. The Belgian is however, expected to return to the fray on time to face Palace away this weekend.

Injured: Terry, Mikel

50/50: Oscar, Hazard

Crystal Palace

Next Up: Chelsea (H)

James Tomkins and Bakary Sako are currently nursing knocks in the lead up Gameweek 17. Neither are expected to regain their fitness on time to feature in the starting XI come Saturday.

Injured: Mandanda, Souare, Remy, Jonathan Benteke, Wickham

50/50: Tomkins, Sako

Everton

Next Up: Liverpool (H)

The Toffees may have turned a corner in victory over Arsenal, but they will be hampered in their upcoming Merseyside Derby without the services of the suspended Phil Jagielka.

Injured: Pennington, Besic, Bolasie

Suspended: Jagielka

Hull City

Next Up:  West Ham (A)

Diumerci Mbokani is back from suspension and ready for selection away to West Ham this weekend. Having very few fit striking options at present, Mike Phelan should give the Congolese international a starting berth.

Injured: McGregorOdubajo, Bruce, Luer, Hernandez, Keane

50/50: Lenihan

Leicester City

Next Up:  Stoke (A)

In a massive boost, Danny Drinkwater finally returns from suspension to feature away to Stoke in Gameweek 17. Unfortunately for Claudio Ranieri, Kasper Schmeichel has not yet fully recovered from his broken hand and will likely sit out this weekend.

50/50: Schmeichel 

Liverpool

Next Up: Everton (A)

Divock Origi, fresh off his recent goal glut, is currently carrying a knock into the forthcoming derby showdown with Everton. Given his recent form, fully expect the young Belgian to play through the pain.

Injured: Coutinho, GrujicIngs, Sturridge

50/50: Gomez, Matip, Can, Ojo, Origi

Manchester City

Next Up: Arsenal (H)

Guardiola regains the services of Fernandinho and Otamendi following their respective suspensions, but loses Ilkay Gundogan to a potential ACL injury. The initial suspicion is that the German international could miss the remainder of the season.

Injured: Kompany, Gundogan

Suspended: Aguero

Manchester United

Next Up: West Bromwich Albion (A)

Eric Bailly departed the field of play against Crystal Palace last time out and is currently touch and go to travel to West Brom this weekend.

Injured: Shaw, SmallingMkhitaryan

50/50: Bailly

Middlesbrough

Next Up:  Swansea (H)

The injury list at the Riverside remains much the same with George Friend and Gaston Ramirez the primary names in the physio room.

Injured: Friend, Ramirez

50/50: Stuani

Southampton

Next Up: Bournemouth (A)

Aside from Charlie Austin’s three month injury layoff, the main concern for Claude Puel and Southampton is filling the Oriol Romeu sized hole in midfield for the next two matches, with the Spaniard suspended for Gameweek 17.

Injured: McCarthyPied, Targett, Hesketh, Austin

50/50: Cedric, Reed

Suspended: Romeu

Stoke City

Next Up:  Leicester City (H)

Marko Arnautovic’s rash red card in Gameweek 16 sees the Austrian international suspended for the next three matches.

Injured: ButlandCameron, Bardsley, Ireland, Afellay

Suspended: Arnautovic

Sunderland

Next Up:  Watford (H)

Key starters Billy Jones and Victory Anichebe are slight doubts ahead of a home clash with Watford, with both parties carrying knocks.

Injured: McNair, Rodwell, Gooch, Cattermole, Watmore

50/50: Jones, Pienaar, Anichebe

Swansea City

Next Up:  Middlesbrough (A)

Federico Fernandez should return to action from a toe issue ahead on Swansea’s away fixture to Middlesbrough. With Swansea’s defence particularly weak away from home, they need the Argentinian to prove his fitness.

Injured: Ki Sung-yeung

50/50: Fernandez

Tottenham Hotspur

Next Up:  Burnley (H)

Moussa Dembele and the foot injury he sustained in Gameweek 15 is currently restricting Mauricio Pochettino from fielding his best Spurs side. They’ll have to make do for a home clash with Burnley this weekend at the very least.

Injured: Dembele, Lamela

50/50: Janssen

Watford

Next Up:  Sunderland (A)

Stefano Okaka, having just hit form in recent weeks, is ruled out of the coming trip to Sunderland through a hamstring injury and is unlikely to return until Boxing Day.

Injured: Cathcart, Okaka

50/50: Mariappa

Suspended: Pereyra

West Bromwich Albion

Next Up: Manchester United (H)

West Brom come into Gameweek 17 with a swagger, as they move steadily up the Premier League table. They also boast a healthy squad list, that only has Jonny Evans as potential injury doubt in the first XI.

Injured: Myhill, Berahino

50/50: Evans

West Ham United

Next Up: Hull (H)

The Hammers face Hull at home in Gameweek 17 and James Collins could resume his spot in the centre of defence as he recovers from a hamstring complaint.

Injured: Byram, Oxford, Tore, Zaza, Sakho

50/50: Collins
