The Hitlist: Gameweek 22 Injury & Suspension Round Up

Mark Noble (16), Andy Carroll (9) and Dimitri Payet of West Ham United (27) celebrate victory after the Barclays Premier League match between West Ham United and Manchester United at the Boleyn Ground on May 10, 2016 in London, England. West Ham United are playing their last ever home match at the Boleyn Ground after their 112 year stay at the stadium. The Hammers will move to the Olympic Stadium for the 2016-17 season.

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 22.


Next Up:Burnley (H)

Mohamed Elneny is on duty with Egypt at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations and is therefore unavailable to feature against Burnley this coming weekend. On a positive note, Bellerin, Hibbs and Coquelin have all returned to training and should be declared fit for Sunday’s fixture.

Injured: Mertesacker, Debuchy, Cazorla, Walcott, Sanogo

50/50: Bellerin, Gibbs, Coquelin

N/A: Elneny


Next Up:Watford (H)

Max Gradel is on international duty with Ivory Coast and may not return to Bournemouth until the second week of February at the latest. Meanwhile, defender Simon Francis is suspended until Gamweek 23.

Suspended: Francis

50/50: Wilson

N/A: Gradel


Next Up:Arsenal (A)

Scott Airfield is arguably the biggest loss for Burnley going into Gameweek 22 and especially with the Gunnders on the cards. The Scottish winger will join Gudmundsson on the sidelines with a hamstring injury.

Injured: LongGudmundsson, Airfield


Next Up:  Hull (H)

Diego Costa’s spat with the club and Antonio Conte appears to have come to end for the time being at least. As such, the Spain international should be available to reclaim his starting berth against Hull this coming Sunday.

50/50: Costa

Crystal Palace

Next Up: Everton (H)

Wilfried Zaha is perhaps the biggest loss to both Sam Allardyce and Crystal Palace, as the Ivorian international takes his place at the African Cup of Nations. James McArthur meanwhile, should shake off a calf issue before Everton roll into town.

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

50/50: McArthur, Mutch

N/A: Zaha


Next Up: Crystal Palace (A)

Idrissa Gueye is unavailable again through international duty while Everton’s injury list remains much the same going into Gameweek 22.

Injured: Pennington, Besic, Bolasie, Calvert-Lewin

N/A: Gueye

Hull City

Next Up:  Chelsea (A)

Mbokani and Elmohamady are away on international detail and unavailable to compete this weekend. The real point of concern will surround the fitness of star man Robert Snodgrass who is touch and go with a knock. Facing Chelsea away, they’ll certainly need his contribution.

Injured: Odubajo, Bruce, Henriksen, Luer, Keane

50/50: Lenihan, Meyler, Snodgrass, Maloney

N/A: Elmohamady, Mbokani

Leicester City

Next Up:  Southampton (A)

Leicester face Southampton will depleted attacking options as the likes of Slimani and Mahrez take the their respective places at the AFCON tournament. Leonardo Ulloa is out until the end of the month with a knee injury.

Injured: Ulloa

N/A: Amartey, Mahrez, Slimani 


Next Up: Swansea (H)

The Joel Matip-Cameroon saga rolls on for another week and he will be unlikely to gain clearance to play for Liverpool again until Gameweek 23. Nathaniel Clyne and Jordan Henderson could return to the fray to face Swansea at home, having both sat out first team training during the week.

Injured: Grujic, BrannaganIngs

50/50: Clyne, Matip, Henderson

N/A: Mane

Manchester City

Next Up: Tottenham Hotspur (H)

Manchester City need to bounce back in a big way versus Tottenham Hotspur this weekend and do so with out the services of Fernandinho in their midfield. The Brazil international is ruled out for a further two matches through suspension.

Injured: Gundogan

50/50: Fernando

Suspended: Fernandinho

Manchester United

Next Up: Stoke (A)

Aside from the AFCON bound Eric Bailly, United have a perfectly healthy squad to choose from away to Stoke.

N/A: Bailly


Next Up:  West Ham (H)

Boro miss key defensive figures, Barragan and Ayala through injury and suspension respectively while chief playmaker Gaston Ramirez, continues on the sidelines with a knee injury.

Injured: Barragan, Ramirez

Supended: Ayala


Next Up: Leicester (H)

The Saints injury list remains much the same in Gameweek 22 with Davis, Boufal and Charlie Austin’s absences among the most concerning.

Injured: McCarthyPied, Targett, Hesketh, Boufal, Davis, Austin


Stoke City

Next Up:  Manchester United (H)

John Walters is potentially Stoke’s biggest loss in the lead up to a home clash with Manchester United as the Ireland international contends with a potentially lengthy knee injury.

Injured: ButlandCameron, Ireland, Walters

N/A: Bony, Diouf, Sobhi



Next Up:  West Brom (A)

David Moyes has serious worries to contend with the spine of his team effectively decimated through a spate of injuries and the call of the African Cup of Nations.

Injured: PickfordMcNair, Manquillo, Cattermole, Kirchoff, Gooch, Watmore, Anichebe

50/50: Rodwell

N/A: Kone, Ndong, Khazri

Swansea City

Next Up:  Liverpool (A)

Swansea’s left flank is particularly bare this weekend as both Neil Taylor and Jefferson Montero bow out of the action through facial and hamstring injuries respectively.

Injured: Taylor, Montero

50/50: Barrow

Tottenham Hotspur

Next Up:  Manchester City (A)

Spurs face Manchester City without the services of both Jan Verthongen and Erik Lamela. However, given their recent form, this is unlikely to affect Pochettino’s men going into Gameweek 22.

Injured: Verthongen, Lamela



Next Up:  Bournemouth (A)

Roberto Pereyra is proabably the most high profile absentee in Watford’s ranks this weekend and the Argentine is now scheduled to potentially miss months as he recovers from a knee problem.

Injured: Pereyra, Success, Amrabat, Okaka

50/50: Gomes, Janmaat

N/A: Guedioura


West Bromwich Albion

Next Up: Sunderland (H)

The fitness of Jonny Evans is without doubt, the chief concern for West Brom this weekend as the Northern Ireland international recovers from a troublesome knee complaint. He along with fellow Baggies defender, Allan Nyom could be forced to sit out their forthcoming fixtures with Sunderland.

50/50: Evans, Nyom, Berahino

West Ham United

Next Up: Middlesbrough (A)

Kouyate and Andre Ayew constitute the ineligible parties for West Ham, as both are called away on international duty. The chief concern however will be Andy Carroll, who scored the goal of his career last time out but carries a neck injury into the game.

Injured: Arbeloa, Masuaku, Tore, Sakho

50/50: Reid, Byram. FeghouliCarroll

N/A: Kouyate, Ayew
