The weekly round up of the injured, sick and suspended
Next Up: Manchester United (H)
Mikel Arteta may have been ruled out through a hamstring problem but it was Arsenal’s
piecemeal backline that was left brutally exposed in a 2-1 loss to Swansea. With Nacho
Monreal ineffectively shunted across to partner Mertesacker, the return of Koscielny
cannot come quickly enough.
Injured: Ozil, Debuchy, Giroud, Diaby, Ospina, Koscielny, Gnabry, Arteta
Next Up: Southampton (H)
Villa held fast against the in-form West Ham, but lost the impressive Nathan Baker to a
knock shortly before full-time. Not thought to be serious.
Injured: Hutton, Delph, Kozák
Next Up: Stoke (A)
No new casualties for Burnley following a fine first win of the season at home to Hull
Injured: Taylor, Vokes
Next Up: West Brom (H)
Jose Mourinho admitted he took a “gamble” on Fabregas’ fitness in the win over
Liverpool and could now be paying the cost. Chelsea’s key man could miss the next
three weeks for club and country.
Injured: Fabregas, Schurrle
Next Up: Liverpool (H) Palace may have been unfortunate to come away from the United clash with nothing but
Warnock’s side can reassess with a clean bill of health over the break.
Next Up: West Ham (H)
Midfield anchor Barry was subbed off in the early exchanges of Everton’s trip to
Sunderland. Not as bad as feared, the Blues have able cover in Gibson and Besic
Injured: Mirallas, Stones, Oviedo, Koné, Alcaraz
Next Up: Tottenham (A)
Without a win in five, the injury list at Hull has effectively robbed them of their spine. With
Curtis Davis now the latest victim, the international break could be a welcome respite
for Bruce and co.
Injured: McGregor, Bruce, Snodgrass, Dawson, Jelavic
Next Up: Sunderland (H)
Leicester were the latest side to fall afoul of Southampton in GW10 and could be nearing
panic stations before long. Matthew Upson’s return to training is a small cause for
Next Up: Crystal Palace (A)
Another week in the mire for the struggling Reds; with Sturridge, Enrique and Sakho all
due to return in the coming weeks the international break could prove a blessing or, as is
often the case for Rodgers, a curse.
Injured: Sturridge, Suso, Flanagan, Sakho, Jose Enrique
Next Up: Swansea (H)
A Gameweek 11 to forget for Manchester City. As the absence of David Silva grew ever
apparent, their problems were compounded with the injury of captain Kompany and then
Edin Dzeko. Manuel Pellegrini’s status hangs in the balance and Aguero may not be
able to bail him out much longer.
Injured: Silva, Kompany, Kolarov.
Next Up: Arsenal (A)
United were far from effective against Palace but attentions have swiftly turned to
Radamel Falcao’s tender left knee, after allegations that he must ice it after each training
session. Breaking news or not, the high maintenance Colombian has failed to prove his
fitness thus far.
Injured: Falcao, Lingard, Rojo, Evans, Jones, Rafael
Next Up: QPR (H)
The party rolls on Tyneside after another fine win at West Brom. However, the fixture
break will be welcome for all involved following various knocks and bruises to the likes of
Coloccini, Steven Taylor and Aarons.
Injured: Tiote, De Jong, Santon, Gutiérrez, Obertan
50/50: Cissé, Aarons, Coloccini, Taylor
Next Up: Newcastle (A)
QPR were unfortunate not to come away with the spoils in a worthy display at home to
Manchester City. They lost a good man with Sandro subbed off at halftime through
Injured: Faurlin, McCarthy
Suspended: Rio Ferdinand
Next Up: Aston Villa (A)
Another week, another scalp- this time at Leicester. One wonders where Rodriguez will
slot back into the side come December.
Injured: Rodriguez, Ward-Prowse, Davis Gallagher
Next Up: Burnley (H)
Stoke look a revitalised bunch coming out of Gameweek 11, on the field at least. A
number of key injuries piling up will be a cause of concern.
Injured: Odemwingie, Whelan, Huth
50/50: Wilson, Bardsley, Arnautovic
Next Up: Leicester (A)
Gus Poyet was denied a victory at the death by Everton, but with a number of first
teamers due back over the next few weeks, things are looking up for the Black Cats.
Injured: Van Aanholt, Jones
50/50: Giaccherini, Álvarez, Coates
Next Up: Manchester City (H)
Routledge, Dyer and Fernandez were all ruled out prior to Swansea’s GW11 victory over
Arsenal, though they were hardly missed as it happened.
Injured: Amat, Donnelly, Richards, Tiendalli
50/50: Dyer, Routledge, Fernandez
Next Up: Stoke (A)
A Gameweek 11 to forget for all involved at Spurs. Kyle Walker no closer to a return
either. Kyle Naughton is now suspended
Injured: Walker, Bentaleb
Next Up: Chelsea (A)
West Brom go into Gameweek 12 awaiting the return of lynchpin Jonas Olsson, with
Chelsea on the horizon, they’ll need every man they can get.
Injured: Varela, Olsson
Next Up: Everton (A)
Andy Carroll almost returned to Hollywood narrative, narrowly denied the glory of a goal
at the death. With Demel to return by Gameweek 12 the Hammers are in a good place.
