Injuries and suspensions ahead of Dream Team Game Week 23

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 23.

Liverpool could welcome back Diogo Jota (£2.8m) for Sunday’s trip to Sheffield United.

The Portuguese attacker, who’s scored nine goals in 17 appearances for the champions, has been sidelined with a knee injury since December.

But Jurgen Klopp confirmed that he’d trained with the first-team squad twice and looks ‘very good’ ahead of a potential return.

He said: “Diogo trained now twice with the team, looks very good – very good. He was out long term so we have to see what we can do with that. But in training he looks really promising.”

However, it’s not all good news for Klopp and Co. with Jordan Henderson (£1.6m) out until April with a groin injury. He joins Virgil van Dijk (£5.1m), Joel Matip (£3.4m), Joe Gomez (£3.3m) and Fabinho (£1.7m) on the sidelines.

Neighbours Everton have only Yerry Mina (£1.9m) missing ahead of their clash with Southampton with Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£4.6m) and midfielder Allan (£1.2m) available for selection.

January recruit Takumi Minamino (£2m) has joined Saints’ ever-growing injury list after suffering a hamstring problem against Leeds.

Man United and Chelsea boast virtually fully fit squads as they prepare to meet at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hopeful that Daniel James (£2.4m), Edinson Cavani (£3.1m), Donny van de Beek (£1.8m) and Scott McTominay (£2.7m) will all be available. Paul Pogba (£3.4m) and Thiago Silva (£4.2m) are the only confirmed absentees.

It’s a similar story for Pep Guardiola’s Man City, who are only missing Nathan Ake (£3m) for Saturday lunchtime’s visit of West Ham.

Ryan Fredericks (£2.4m) is a fitness doubt, while Andriy Yarmolenko (£1.6m), Angelo Ogbonna (£2.5m) and Arthur Masuaku (£2.2m) all remain unavailable for the Hammers.

Rob Holding (£2.6m) is Arsenal’s only doubt for their trip to the King Power. Leicester, meanwhile, are nursing a plethora of injuries with James Maddison (£4.1m) added to their list.

Brendan Rodgers confirmed surgery was not required but was vague on the midfielder’s availability.

He said: “It’s going to be one of those where he doesn’t need anything surgically, it’s just going to be about once the pain dies down. I can’t put a timeline on it. It’s going to be about how he feels. We’re going to have to assess that each day.”

Dean Smith confirmed that Jack Grealish (£4.5m) wouldn’t be available for the Leeds clash, along with Matty Cash (£2.9m). However, he did suggest the England midfielder could feature against Sheffield United next Wednesday.
