Injuries and suspensions ahead of Dream Team Game Week 13

Dream Team brings you all the latest injury news and suspension updates from the Premier League to help managers navigate their way through Game Week 13.

Man United’s Edinson Cavani (£3.1m) has been charged with misconduct by the FA and could miss three matches if he’s found guilty.

The Uruguayan, 33, shared an Instagram story that featured a Spanish phrase that is racially offensive in some contexts.

He has been given until January 4th to respond to the charge and will be allowed to play until a final verdict is handed down.

Elsewhere, Arsenal will be without Granit Xhaka (£1.2m) and Gabriel (£3.5m) for Saturday’s trip to Everton. The pair are both suspended having been sent off against Burnley and Southampton respectively.

Mikel Arteta is also unlikely to have Thomas Partey (£3.3m), Reiss Nelson (£2.3m) and Sead Kolasinac (£2.6m) for the Goodison Park showdown.

But there’s better news for Carlo Ancelotti’s side who are expected to welcome back James Rodriguez (£3.6m) and Seamus Coleman (£1.8m) with the pair overcoming injuries.

Centre-back Joel Matip (£2.9m) joined several Liverpool players on the sidelines with a back spasm for Wednesday’s victory over Tottenham and will face a late fitness test ahead of the lunchtime kick off with Crystal Palace.

If he misses out, 19-year-old Rhys Williams (£2.4m) could continue for the Premier League champions and the teenager will NOT have to deal with Eagles forward Christian Benteke (£1.4m), who is serving a one-match suspension after being dismissed during the 1-1 draw at the London Stadium.

David Moyes has discussed the possibility of freshening things up against Chelsea with defender Aaron Cresswell (£1.8m) and Fabian Balbuena (£2.4m) carrying knocks. Jarrod Bowen (£2.4m) also twisted his ankle in the warm-up.

Willy Boly (£2.4m) and Leander Dendoncker (£1.6m) were both withdrawn during Wolves’ victory over Chelsea, who themselves are still without Hakim Ziyech (£3.2m) and Callum Hudson-Odoi (£2.3m).

Man City have no new injury concerns before their clash with in-form Southampton, who are also injury free.
