Dream Team Injury Update: Game Week 44

Game Week 44 (but, honestly, who’s counting?) kicks off on Saturday at 12:30 with Norwich taking on West Ham and Watford facing Newcastle.

So, gaffers, that gives you a little bit of time to fine-tune your Dream Team, make some changes or take out one or two players who might be injured.

With that in mind, here’s some of the major injury concerns, doubts and returnees you may not know about.

Jordan Henderson

The big news prior to this weekend’s fixtures is that Henderson, the Liverpool captain and the potential winner of this season’s Player of the Year award, could miss the remaining games of the campaign through injury.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp confirmed the news earlier today, saying the midfielder sustained the knock in their win against Brighton on Wednesday night.

Dele Alli

The bad times roll on for Spurs as Jose Mourinho confirmed on Friday that Dele Alli will miss their North London derby match on Sunday against Arsenal with a minor hamstring injury.

Billy Gilmour

Chelsea’s teenage sensation is one of the newest editions to Dream Team, but it looks as though he’ll miss the rest of the season (and probably the start of the next campaign) after suffering a nasty knee injury.

The 19-year-old collided with Luka Milivojevic during Chelsea’s 3-2 win over Crystal Palace last time out and was eventually substituted off.

N’Golo Kante 

Kante’s injury-hit season continues with another hamstring problem.

He missed out on Chelsea’s win over Palace and looks set to be sidelined for the Sheffield United match on Saturday evening too.

Mateo Kovacic

Some good news for Chelsea on the midfielder front though; Kovacic is back in full training and is expected to be available for Saturday’s trip to Sheffield.

Todd Cantwell

Relegation-candidates Norwich expect Cantwell to return for their match against West Ham on Saturday.

The midfielder, who has 70 points on Dream Team this season, missed Tuesday’s trip to Watford with a hamstring problem but should be available for ’20 or 30 minutes’ at the weekend, according to his manager Daniel Farke.

Adama Traore

Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo confirmed that Traore dislocated his shoulder for the fourth time this season during their 1-0 defeat to Sheffield United on Wednesday.

The boss revealed that the winger was able to play through the pain during the match, but there’s been no word whether or not this will be a problem ahead of their game against Everton on Sunday.

This could be big news for many Dream Team gaffers, as Traore has been one of the game’s success stories this season and is currently being picked by 18% of you while boasting an impressive 197 points.

Kevin De Bruyne

Man City’s Pep Guardiola has said that De Bruyne should be available for selection for their upcoming match, despite the Belgian suffering an injury scare in their 5-0 thumping of Newcastle.

De Bruyne played the entire match but appeared to pick up a knock towards the end of the clash following a heavy challenge by Danny Rose.

But all appears to be well with the midfielder and he should be fine ahead of their game with Brighton on Saturday – but it’s probably keeping an eye on between now and Saturday lunchtime.
