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 14.
Next Up: West Ham (A)
Mathieu Debuchy was dealt a crippling blow after he departed with yet another hamstring injury. The full-back is the primary new injury on a growing list for Arsene Wenger and Santi Cazorla’s absence from the midfield looks set to extend as he goes in for ankle surgery.
Injured: Mertesacker, Debuchy, Bellerin, Cazorla, Welbeck
50/50: Elneny, Giroud
Next Up: Liverpool (H)
Jack Wilshere is back for selection against Liverpool after his ineligible status against Arsenal last weekend.
50/50: Boruc, Surman, Daniels
Next Up: Stoke (A)
Paul Robinson could continue his understudy duties if first-choice stopper Tom Heaton doesn’t prove his fitness before kick-off against Stoke.
50/50: Marney, Heaton
Next Up: Manchester City (H)
Antonio Conte’s starting XI is fully fit and ready to face Manchester City. Second stringers John Terry – shocking as that sounds – and John Obi Mikel are the only absentees.
Injured: Terry, Mikel
Next Up: Southampton (H)
Yohan Cabaye misses out at home to the Saints through suspension but perhaps the biggest loss to Palace in their time of need is Connor Wickham’s knee injury. One of their better players in recent weeks, Palace require all hands on deck to overcome their six game winless streak.
Injured: Mandanda, Souare, Remy, Jonathan Benteke, Wickham
Next Up: Manchester United (H)
The Toffees host Manchester United with their first choice starting XI fit and available. James McCarthy could also prove his fitness on time to feature as he emerges from a hamstring injury.
Injured: Pennington, Besic, Kone
Next Up: Middlesbrough (A)
Hull City comprises the most injury hit squad currently in the Premier League. On the plus side Ryan Mason could be in line to feature in midfield after coming off the field in Gameweek 13 with an illness.
Injured: Odubajo, Bruce, Luer, Hernandez, Keane
50/50: McGregor, Maloney, Mason, Robertson, Lenihan
Next Up: Sunderland (A)
Danny Drinkwater remains suspended until the the 13th of October while Kasper Schmeichel’s stay on the sidelines could extend for a another few weeks, as he recovers from a broken hand.
Next Up: Bournemouth (A)
Adam Lallana is training once more and could be in line to face Bournemouth this Sunday. However, Liverpool have other key players who are 50/50 to start this weekend, Matip and Firmino the biggest names among them.
50/50: Gomez, Matip, Lallana, Ojo, Firmino, Sturridge
Next Up: Chelsea (H)
Kompany and Delph continue in the physio room for the time being and standout as City’s most high profile injured parties. Raheem Sterling should shake off a knock on time to play Chelsea.
Injured: Kompany, Delph
Next Up: Everton (A)
Wayne Rooney may have put in one of his best performances in months against West Ham United but his chances of continuing that form were scuppered after he picked up a booking to rule him out of a trip away to his former club, Everton.
Injured: Smalling, Bailly
Next Up: Hull City (H)
Aitor Karanka will be boosted not only by his side’s recent upturn in form but also his relatively bare hitlist which features George Friend as the only unavailable player.
Next Up: Crystal Palace (A)
Dusan Tadic is the most high profile player to miss out on a trip to Selhurst Park and does so through a broken nose.
Injured: McCarthy, Pied, Targett, Hesketh, Tadic
Next Up: Burnley (H)
The talismanic Joe Allen returns to the fray following suspension as Stoke prepare to host Burnley. However other key men, Ryan Shawcross and Glenn Whelan could miss out, both currently recovering from calf injuries.
Injured: Butland, Cameron, Bardsley, Ireland, Afellay
50/50: Shawcross, Whelan
Next Up: Leicester City (H)
The injury list stays effectively the same in Gameweek 14 with Lyden Gooch the only new doubt. The American sustained an ankle injury last time out and is 50/50 for a return.
Injured: McNair, Rodwell, Kirchoff, Cattermole, Borini
Next Up: Tottenham Hotspur (A)
Korean international Ki is currently nursing a toe injury and could be ruled out for a number of weeks yet. Borja Baston, Swansea’s record signing and relative disappointment, is touch and go to feature against Spurs this weekend.
Injured: Ki Sung-yeung
Next Up: Swansea City (H)
Danny Rose should be fit to start at home to Swansea come Saturday and better still, Toby Alderweireld could be in contention to start his first game since Gameweek 8.
Injured: Davies, Lamela
Next Up: West Bromwich Albion (A)
The ill-disciplined Miguel Britos and Valon Behrami miss out through suspension in Gameweek 14. Defensive duo Kaboul and Holebas meanwhile should be in line to play despite carrying minor knocks.
Injured: Cathcart, Kenedy
50/50: Kaboul, Success, Holebas
Suspended: Britos, Behrami
West Bromwich Albion
Next Up: Watford (H)
Tony Pulis has no major injury absentees with substitute goalkeeper, Boaz Myhill and squad outcast, Saido Berahino, the only unavailable first team players .
Injured: Myhill, Berahino
Next Up: Arsenal (H)
Winston Reid is back from suspension for a London derby with Arsenal, having sat out Gameweek 13’s draw with Manchester United. The Hammers have been dealt a few blows in the meantime and Diafra Sakho’s six week knee injury layoff is chief among them.
Injured: Byram, Oxford, Tore, Sakho
50/50: Cresswell, Antonio, Carroll
