FIT/RETURNING

Christian Pulisic

There were some worries that Pulisic could miss Chelsea’s game at West Ham last time out, but the American played the full 90 minutes – ending any fears he’d picked up a calf injury in their win against Leicester.

That’s just as well, as he’s looked like one of the Blues’ – and Dream Team’s – best players in recent weeks.

Christian Benteke

From one Christian to another, Benteke will be back in action for Crystal Palace at the weekend after a two-match absence through injury.

Mesut Ozil

There were whispers that Ozil could miss Arsenal’s trip to Wolves on Saturday with a knock, but that isn’t the case.

Whether or not Mikel Arteta decides to recall the German to his matchday squad is another matter.

DEFINITELY OUT

Bernd Leno

You should know by now that Arsenal’s No.1 is out of action for a little while after his run-in with Neal Maupay in the Gunners’ defeat to Brighton last month.

The goalkeeper injured his knee ligaments after falling badly when he tussled for the ball with Maupay, and while it’s not particularly good for Arsenal to be missing their first-choice keeper… it seems he’ll only be out for around four weeks, instead of the first-feared 12 months.

Sergio Aguero

Aguero’s injury is a much more pressing concern, with nearly 32% of managers still boasting the striker in their team.

If you are one of them, then we implore you to transfer the Argentinian out immediately as he’ll be sidelined for the foreseeable future.

Gabriel Martinelli

When it rains, it pours for Arsenal.

The loss of Leno – one of their finest performers this season – is bad enough, but a recent injury to Martinelli is a bitter blow considering the young Brazilian’s brilliance this season.

Chances are he’ll miss the rest of the season, and should be transferred out of your team without delay.

Mateo Kovacic

Chelsea will be without their midfielder dynamo for their match against Watford, after he picked up an Achilles injury.

DOUBTS

James Maddison

Leicester’s playmaker is a doubt for their clash with Crystal Palace on Saturday after aggravating a hip complaint during the week.

Reports state that his involvement will be touch and go before kick-off.

John Fleck

Fleck joins other Sheffield United favourites John Lundstram and Luke Freeman on the sidelines for their trip to Burnley on Sunday.

Felipe Anderson

West Ham’s under performing midfielder is a doubt for their trip to Newcastle with a slight muscle problem.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg

Southampton’s midfield general is a major doubt for their daunting game against Man City as he continues to struggle with the ankle knock he suffered against Arsenal.

SUSPENDED

Callum Wilson

Bournemouth will have to play without Wilson when they travel to Man United at the weekend and then host Newcastle on Wednesday, after he accrued his 10th caution of the campaign during the Cherries’ defeat to Wolves – resulting in a two-match suspension.

Wilson has been a far-cry from the reliable source of points he was on Dream Team last season, with the striker boasting just 60 at the moment… so, not a huge loss for your team, eh?
