We’re diving back into another weekend of Premier League action after the Carabao Cup’s midweek distraction.
But there’s a few injury concerns you need to be aware of ahead of Game Week 7.
Remember: Game Week 7 starts as soon as Sheffield United’s game against Liverpool kicks-off at 12:30 on Saturday, so make sure any transfers you want/need to make have been done before then. Don’t get caught out!
Man United’s recent injury problems have gone from bad to worse, with Rashford set to join Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Luke Shaw on the club’s list of recent concerns.
Rashford reportedly suffered a groin injury last week in the defeat to West Ham, and could be out until the next international break in October.
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has confirmed in-form left-back Palmieri will be out for at least a month.
The Italian suffered a thigh injury in last weekend’s 2-1 defeat against Liverpool, meaning Marcos Alonso is back in contention.
Maddison produced a match-winning display last time out in Leicester’s 2-1 victory over Spurs, but he’s been labelled a doubt for the clash against Newcastle this weekend after taking a knock to his ankle.
The midfielder was left out of the Foxes’ 4-0 Carabao Cup win over Luton on Tuesday night, and assistant manager Chris Davies confirmed he could be available for Sunday.
Ole Gunnar Solksjaer has hinted that Martial could return to the fold in Man United’s game against Arsenal on Monday, but we’re not taking any chances.
The Frenchman is certainly close to making a his comeback, but OGS said on Friday he ‘wouldn’t put his life’ on him playing against the Gunners.
We don’t like those odds.
