We’re only a couple of weeks into the new Dream Team season, but there’s already lots to ponder.
The injury to Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson back in Game Week 1 is perhaps the most high profile dilemma for fantasy managers right now, but there’s plenty of other problems out there too…
Remember: Game Week 3 begins on Friday with Aston Villa v Everton – so make sure your transfers are taken care of before 8pm kick-off.
Everton’s left-back has been a huge fantasy football favourite since his arrival last summer, and that’s only been reinforced this term by his part in the Toffees’ back-to-back clean sheets.
But he limped off during the 1-0 win over Watford last time out and there was some concern he could miss the Friday night clash against Aston Villa – although Marco Silva reckon he’ll be available.
Sticking with left-backs, it doesn’t look good for Leicester defender Chilwell.
The Foxes full-back missed last weekend’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea with a hip injury, which meant title-winning star Christian Fuchs stepped in to fill the void.
Chils will likely miss this weekend’s trip to Sheffield United to.
The Spurs midfielder is still recovering from a hamstring injury which has kept him out of the opening two games against Villa and Man City.
There’s a chance he could feature against Newcastle this weekend, albeit a small one.

Roberto Pereyra & Abdoulaye Doucoure:
There’s already bad news at Watford regarding their captain (see below), but to add to that it looks as if first team regulars Pereyra and Doucoure could also miss the weekend’s game against West Ham.
Hornets’ boss Javi Gracia saind in his Thursday press conference: “They are not training and we’ll see if in the next days some of them can be available or not. But in this moment they are doubtful.”
Watford’s start to the season has been a disaster, with the Hornets losing their first two games without scoring a single goal.
And it’s about to get worse with news that their captain and start striker Deeney will be out for several weeks after undergoing a knee operation.
Liverpool’s goalie lasted just 40 minutes of the very first game of the season against Norwich before limping off the field with a calf injury.
Back-up keeper Adrian has been filling the void since then, with the No.1 set to be out for an extended period of time.
Liverpool’s injury ravaged midfielder looks set to spend another spell on the sidelines with a muscle strain sustained prior to Liverpool’s start to the season.
Son is back for Spurs after serving his suspension, and could feature in their clash against Newcastle on Sunday.
Considering Newcastle’s difficult start to the season, you imagine the South Korean would be ready to cause havoc for Steve Bruce’s side, but will he be thrown into the starting line-up, or will he start on the bench?
