Daily Fantasy Focus gives you the lowdown on suspension, illness and injury in the Premier League. It’s the Hitlist.
Next Up: Swansea (A)
Arsene Wenger has a growing build-up of injuries on his hands, as Arsenal travel to Swansea to take on Garry Monk’s men.
The loss of both Chamberlain and Theo Walcott during a league cup defeat midweek will hit hard – while auxiliary team members, David Ospina and Mikel Arteta have likewise picked up knocks.
Injured: Ospina, Rosicky, Arteta, Wilshere, Ramsey, Chamberlain, Welbeck, Walcott
Next Up: Tottenham Hotspur (A)
Defensive duo and Sherwood soldiers, Micah Richards and Joleon Lescott, are slight fitness concerns as the now manager-less Villa face Spurs on Monday. Given their importance to the backline however, expect both to feature.
50/50: Richards, Lescott
Next Up: Southampton (H)
The full return of Harry Arter will be a very welcome addition for Eddie Howe whose team has come off the back of two crushing league defeats. A question mark hangs over the head of Artur Boruc however, who is struggling with a thigh injury. As such Federici may well deputise against near-neighbours Southampton.
50/50: Boruc,Tomlin, Atsu
Injured: Mings, Elphick, Gradel, Wilson
Next Up: Liverpool (H)
Pedro could bounce back from injury at home to Liverpool in Gamweek 11, and a big performance from the Spaniard would be a welcome boost for his beleaguered boss.
Injured: Courtois, Ivanovic
Next Up: Manchester United (H)
Dwight Gayle should prove a timely return for Alan Pardew and Palace, who suffered a distinct lack of firepower in defeat to Leicester City last weekend.
Injury doubts surround the likes of Souare, Ward and Yohan Cabaye but the latter – being such a key figure for Palace this season – should be a assured a start at home to Manchester United this weekend. Knock or no.
50/50: Souare, Ward, Cabaye
Injured: Wickham, Chamakh
Next Up: Sunderland (H)
The loss of Phil Jagielka – coupled with existing absence of Baines and the possible doubt over Seamus Coleman’s fitness – is a huge blow to the Toffees. Without that vital experience at the back, they could suffer against a Sunderland side coming off the back of a big win in Gameweek 10.
Injured: Jagielka, Hibbert, Baines
50/50: Coleman, Besic, Pienaar
Next Up: West Brom (A)
Will Leicester’s fairy tale continue against an ultra-disciplined West Brom team? It’s difficult to say, but with virtually no new injuries to contend with, Ranieri’s team are well placed to continue their stunning run.
Next Up: Chelsea (A)
Klopp’s solid start to life on Merseyside is handed its toughest test to date as Liverpool go down to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea.
Sturridge remains the biggest injury concern, with an on-going knee complaint putting him out of action until next week at the earliest.
Injured: Gomez, Toure, Flanagan, Henderson, Rossiter, Ings, Sturridge
Next Up: Norwich City (H)
On paper, the hosting of Norwich looks as clear cut a result as you’re likely to find for Manchester City. In reality, they have worrying injury list to manage. Key players, Zabaleta, Silva and Aguero are the biggest losses, but the in-form Raheem Sterling is likewise a slight doubt. The England international will more than likely feature but carries a hamstring strain in Gameweek 11.
Injured: Zabaleta, Clichy, Delph, Silva, Nasri, Aguero
Next Up: Crystal Palace (A)
United travel down to London in Gameweek 11 with question marks over the fitness of Memphis Depay and James Wilson who both carrying knocks. Antonio Valencia is ruled out.
Injured: McNair, Shaw, Valencia
50/50: Depay, Wilson
Next Up: Stoke City (H)
Coloccini’s tame sending off in the Tyne-Wear derby hit them hard in Gameweek 10, but won’t impact them at home to Stoke after the carding was successfully overturned.
Despite their defeat to Sunderland, Newcastle can take heart in a largely dominant and positive first half performance – the continued key absences, Colback and Taylor among them, continue to hurt.
Injured: Krul, Darlow, Taylor, Good, Obertan, Colback, Riviere
Next Up: Manchester City (A)
Wisdom, Mulumbu and Hooper are among the injured party for Norwich City this weekend, but Alex Neil has largely the same XI available to him away to Manchester City – and that could be a problem.
Injured: Wisdom, Mulumbu, Hooper
Next Up: Bournemouth (H)
Ahead of a south-coast derby at home to the Cherries, Ronald Koeman has much the same set of players to select from as he did in Gameweek 10 – Forster, Gardos and Long remain out of contention.
Jay Rodriguez is now suffering from a foot injury, so his ease back into first team football has been handed another setback.
Injured: Forster, Gardos, Long
Next Up: Newcastle United (A)
Cameron and Phil Bardsley are the two primary absences from an already depleted backline but the potential return of Ryan Shawcross should accommodate for this in Gameweek 11.
50/50: Johnson, Muniesa
Next Up: Everton (A)
Allardyce got off to winning ways in the best way possible in Gameweek 10 – overcoming Sunderland’s bitter rivals and his ex-employers to the tune of 3-0.
Travelling to Merseyside to face Everton however, the Black Cats have number of first team injury doubts to handle – defensive pair O’Shea and Kaboul chief among them.
50/50: Kaboul, O’Shea, Rodwell, Toivonen, Borini
Next Up: Arsenal (H)
Perhaps the most fortunate team in the Premier League this season in terms of injuries and suspension, Swansea are again granted the gift of a fully fit squad in Gamweek 11 to face an Arsenal team on the rise.
Next Up: Aston Villa (H)
Maurcio Pochettino continues to contend with a sizeable injury pile-up ahead of the Monday visit of Aston Villa, but the return of Ryan Mason was a welcome sight for Spurs in Gamweek 11.
Son Heung-Min, perhaps their biggest loss so far – remains out of contention for the near future.
Injured: Fazio, Bentaleb, Pritchard, Chadli, Son
Next Up: West Ham United (H)
Joel Ekstrand stays firmly in the treatment room, while Watford’s Spanish playmaker Juan Manuel Jurado should be fit to feature for the visit of the in-form Hammers. However, Quique Sanchez Flores is expected to keep the faith with the same line-up that toppled Stoke at home in Gameweek 10.
West Bromwich Albion
Next Up: Leicester City (H)
In his pre-game press-conference, Tony Pulis refused to comment whether James Morrison would return to his starting line-up against Leicester in Gameweek 11. The Scotland international has been out of action for the past two fixtures with an ankle problem – as such he’s a 50/50 bet to feature this weekend.
West Ham United
Next Up: Watford (A)
Victor Moses returns to selection in Gameweek 11, but may find it difficult to oust the excellent Zarate, Payet and Lanzini triumvirate. Winston Reid is still doubtful as he recovers from a long standing back injury, while Joey O’Brien is available once more, but unlikely to start against Watford this Saturday.
