Definitely out

Aymeric Laporte

4

Man City will be eyeing more silverware on Sunday in the Carabao Cup final, but they’ll be up against Villa without their star centre-back Aymeric Laporte.

We’ve already looked at the Frenchman’s injury this week and strongly suggested transferring him out for the time being – but it’s now been confirmed by the club that he’ll miss the next three weeks with a hamstring problem.

Such a shame too, as he’s only just come back into the team.

Christian Pulisic, N’Golo Kante & Tammy Abraham

4

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard confirmed that Pulisic, Kante and Abraham are all out injured for their game at Bournemouth on Saturday.

Abraham’s injury is the same as the one he has been suffering from recently, and merely adds to his and Chelsea’s frustrations so far in 2020.

Doubts

Jonny

4

While Matt Doherty is widely considered one of Dream Team’s most popular defenders, his Wolves teammate and fellow wing-back Jonny is certainly no slouch either.

But while Doherty was on target in the midweek Europa League second-leg match against Espanyol on Thursday, Jonny completely missed out having picked up a knock earlier in the week and he remains a doubt for their upcoming clash with Spurs.

Anthony Martial

4

Another regular who missed the midweek Europa League action was Man United’s main man Martial, who’s been flying in recent weeks with three goals scored in February.

A thigh problem kept him out of United’s 5-0 demolition of Club Brugge on Thursday, and may see him miss out on Sunday’s trip to Everton.

Ole Gunnar Solksjaer could neither confirm nor deny the Frenchman’s involvement, saying: “I don’t know about Anthony, to be honest. I’ve not asked. He tried this morning, so he wasn’t that bad but we’ll have to do a scan tomorrow probably.”
