The Hitlist: Gameweek 3 Injury And Suspension Round Up


Ahead of Gameweek 3, Daily Fantasy Focus gives you the lowdown on suspension and injury in the Premier League.


Next Up: Liverpool (H)

The injury list stays much the same for Arsene Wenger’s men as they face a real acid test at home to Liverpool in Gameweek 3. Wilshere and Welbeck look to be still some way off recovery, with knee and ankle injuries respectively.

Injured: Rosicky, Wilshere, Welbeck
50/50: Flamini

Aston Villa

Next Up: Crystal Palace (A)

Carles Gil and Jack Grealish continue a road to recovery but are still very unlikely to start the weekend’s clash with Palace at Selhurst Park.

Injured: Okore, Crespo
50/50: Gil, Grealish


Next Up: West Ham (A)

Another tricky away clash awaits the newly promoted side at Upton Park this weekend. Chief creator Harry Arter stays sidelined for the time being, while Atsu and MacDonald could be in line for a return.

Injured: Arter



Next Up: West Brom (H)

Thibaut Courtois is free for selection once more having served his suspension. He’s likely to regain the starting spot for the West Brom game despite Asmir Begovic’s impressive denial of Sergio Aguero for the opening stages of their 3-0 loss to Man City. Oscar meanwhile, carries a knock and will more than likely miss out again. New boy Pedro could make his debut at some point too in this fixture.
50/50: Oscar


Crystal Palace

Next Up: Aston Villa (H)

Palace will continue to make do without Speroni, Campbell and Chamakh for the foreseeable future and are likely to continue with the same line-up when they host Villa on Saturday.

Injured: Speroni, Campbell, Chamakh



Next Up: Manchester City (H)

Mirallas, Besic and Deulofeu are all now fit and ready for selection for a tough tough clash with Manchester City in Gameweek 3. Martinez is unlikely to tinker too much with a winning formula but Mirallas could certainly come in for a shift-filling Tom Cleverly on the left of midfield.

Injured:  Hibbert, Baines, Gibson, Pienaar

Suspension:  Mirallas, McGeady, Besic, Deulofeu



Next Up: Tottenham (H)

Christian Fuchs struggles with a knock following the Foxes impressive 2-1 showing at West Ham, while Matthew James is sidelined with a long-term knee problem.

Injured:  James

50/50: Fuchs



Next Up: Arsenal (A)

Jordan Henderson was subbed early in the second half for Emre Can as the Liverpool skipper sustained a foot injury. He remains a major doubt  for a crunch fixture with Arsenal this Monday, with Can again posing as the likely replacement.

Injured: Flanagan, Allen, Sturridge

50/50: Henderson


Manchester City

Next Up: Everton (A)

Gael Clichy is fully fit going into Gameweek 3, but unlikely to displace the very impressive Kolarov in the left-back position. Defensive shields Fernando and Fabian Delph are unavailable through injury.

Injured: Fernando, Delph


Manchester United

Next Up: Newcastle (H)

Despite his impressive showing midweek in the Champions League qualifier, Marouane Fellaini is still suspended so won’t regain his place in the side just yet. David De Gea is still embroiled in transfer speculation so won’t feature, while Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones miss out through injury.

Injured: Rojo, Jones

50/50: Lindegaard

Suspended: Fellaini

N/A: De Gea


Newcastle United

Next Up: Manchester United (H)

Daryl Janmaat is suspended following his meltdown against Jefferson Montero in Gameweek 3. It’s unclear whether new signing and Cabella replacement Thauvin will get a run for the United fixture, while Dummet and Sissoko are rendered 50/50 chances for inclusion. Expect Sissoko to feature at some point, regardless.

Injured: Riviere

50/50: Dummet, Sissoko

Suspended: Janmaat


Norwich City

Next Up: Stoke (H)

Norwich report no new squad injuries ahead of a tricky game hosting Stoke on Saturday, but will hope to carry on their strong showing in Gameweek 2.

Injured:  Olsson, Mulumbu, Lafferty



Next Up: Watford (A)

Caulker is available for selection once more in Gameweek 3 and could edge a place in the side following a lacklustre defensive performance against Everton in Gameweek 2.  Bertrand and Clasie are notable short-term absentees while Forster is due out for another six months potentially.

Injured: Forster, Gardos, Bertrand, Clasie

50/50: Ramirez



Next Up: Tottenham (A)

Crafty key player Bojan is touch and go for a return to action in Gamweek 3 where Stoke take on Norwich. Irish international duo Walters and Wilson are firmly on the maybe list.

Injured: Shawcross, Odemwingie

50/50: Wilson, Bojan, Walters


Next Up: Swansea (H)

Sunderland are saddled with much the same problems at home to Swansea this week, with Gomez and Johnson unavailable through knee and shoulder issues.

Injured: Johnson, Gomez


Next Up: Sunderland (A)

Ki Sung-Yueng has not regained full fitness as of yet, following a hamstring injury. As such he is the only doubtful player for a very impressive Swansea side.

50/50: Ki

Tottenham Hotspur

Next Up: Leicester (A)

Andros Townsend counts as the only injured party among the Spurs squad at present, the England international is due back from an ankle issue at the end of August.

Injured: Townsend


Next Up: Southampton (H)

The Horns welcome a number of players back to full fitness, Abdi, Berghuis among them, having featured in some part in Gameweek 2 following injuries. Miguel Britos meanwhile, is in line to make his debut for the club following suspension

Injured: Ekstrand


Next Up: Chelsea (H)

Saloman Rondon could make his full debut for the Baggies at home to Chelsea this weekend, whereas Arsenal loanee Gnabry is a doubt.

Injured: Foster
50/50: Gnabry

West Ham

Next Up: Bournemouth (H)

Slaven Bilic’s side were dealt an injury blow to Mauro Zarate following his promising start to the season while youngster Reece Oxford carries a knock into a home clash with Bournemouth.

Injured: O’Brien, Zarate, Valencia, Carroll

50/50: Oxford
