Injuries and suspensions ahead of Dream Team Game Week 17

Dream Team brings you all the latest injury news and suspension updates from the Premier League to help managers navigate their way through a jam-packed Game Week 17.

Southampton will be without talisman Danny Ings (£4.4m) for Saturday’s trip to Leicester.

The centre-forward, who has bagged 61 points for Dream Team owners, has been in isolation after testing positive for coronavirus. However, there is some positive news for manager Ralph Hasenhuttl with first-choice goalkeeper Alex McCarthy (£2.4m) back in action.

Leicester, meanwhile, welcome back Jamie Vardy (£6.0m) and James Maddison (£3.7m) for the clash at the King Power Stadium after the pair recovered from their respective injuries.

But Dennis Praet (£1.4m) has suffered a serious hamstring injury and will be sidelined for three months. Ricardo Pereira (£3.8m) is also absent despite returning to first-team training.

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard boasts a fully fit squad for the weekend’s clash with London rivals Fulham.

That means a return to fitness for Reece James (£3.8m) and centre-back Andreas Christensen (£1.4m), but N’Golo Kante (£1.6m) serves a one-match suspension following an accumulation of yellow cards. Fulham are without duo Aleksandar Mitrovic (£2.2m) and Tom Cairney (£2.0m).

Man United are sweating over the fitness of forward Anthony Martial (£4.3m) ahead of Sunday’s all-important showdown with title rivals Liverpool.

The Frenchman hurt his hamstring at the end of Tuesday’s win at Burnley and a late decision over his availability will be made. Victor Lindelof (£2.3m) and Nemanja Matic (£1.7m) are also doubts.

Liverpool could be without both Joel Matip (£3.6m) and Naby Keita (£1.8m) after they both missed training on Wednesday. One of the inexperienced pair of Rhys Williams (£2.4m) and Nat Phillips are likely to partner Fabinho (£2.3m).

Sergio Aguero (£5.0m) will miss Man City’s home clash with Crystal Palace with the striker in self-isolation after coming in contact with a person who tested positive for COVID-19.

Gabriel Jesus (£4.4m) started on the bench for the 1-0 win at Brighton and should push for a starting role, along with fit-again Ferran Torres (£3.2m).
