There’s only a handful of games left until the end of the fantasy football season.
But there’s an unfortunate band of Premier League stars who look set to miss these final few games through season-ending injuries – including these seven Dream Team favourites.
1 Aaron Ramsey
It looks like Ramsey has played his last game for Arsenal after it emerged he will miss the rest of the season with a hamstring injury.
The midfielder was hauled off before halftime in the Gunners’ Europa League quarter-final win over Napoli last month, with the club confirming today that he won’t be available for their remaining games.
Of course, the Welshman then moves onto Juventus on a free transfer over the summer, so this really is the last we’ll see of him in red and white.
2 Antonio Rudiger
Rudiger has been one of Chelsea’s most consistent performers this season and has become a Dream Team stalwart as a result.
But after limping out of the Blues’ 1-1 draw at Man United on Sunday – and with the club later confirming he suffered a season-ending knee injury – it’s probably time to take him out of your team.
3 Callum Hudson-Odoi
More bad news for Chelsea fans is the loss of wonderkid Hudson-Odoi.
The 18-year-old confirmed in a tweet last month that he’d ruptured his Achilles tendon after the Blues 2-2 draw against Burnley.
CHO’s breakout campaign saw him play 24 times for Chelsea and even make his England debut in back March.
4 Harry Winks
Spurs’ recent injury problems have been well-documented, with Harry Kane perhaps one of the biggest losses of the season so far for Dream Team gaffers.
But the Champions League semi-finalists are missing the other Harry in their team too, with Winks set to undergo groin surgery – meaning he’ll miss the club’s last few games.
5 Eric Bailly
Bailly’s spent much of this season on the sidelines for Man United, with injury problems and a fall out with manager Jose Mourinho keeping him out of the starting line-up for much of the campaign.
But after starting in the Red Devils’ weekend draw with Chelsea – his first start since February – the Ivorian sustained a nasty knee injury which not only keeps him out of United’s final two games, but aldo means he’ll miss this summer’s Africa Cup of Nations.
6 Denis Suarez
He was supposed to be the difference in Arsenal’s midfield for the second-half of their season, but Suarez’s loan move to the Emirates will probably go down as one of the club’s worst signings in recent years.
The Spanish midfielder has made just six substitute appearances for Unai Emery’s side and has scored no goals and provided no assists – resulting in a pathetic ZERO points on Dream Team.
And now a groin injury means he’ll miss the rest of the season and will unlikely play for the Gunners again, unless they decide to pay his £20million release clause from Barcelona.
7 Miguel Almiron
There was plenty of excitement surrounding Newcastle’s January signing of Almiron for a club record fee of £20m from MLS side Atlanta United.
But we’ll have to wait until next season to see the Paraguay international don the black and white shirt again, after he suffered a hamstring injury in the win over Southampton back in April.
Luckily, only about 0.2% of Dream Team managers had the playmaker in their teams.
