Injuries and suspensions update ahead of Game Week 21 – Rodrigo, John Stones sidelined

Dream Team brings you all the latest injury, suspension and selection updates ahead of Game Week 21 in one easily digestible dose.

Reece James (£5.8m) and Ben Chilwell (£5.1m) have racked up Dream Team points for fun when fit in recent times and Chelsea fans will be relieved to hear the pair are fit enough to return to the squad, as are Raheem Sterling (£4.2m) and Ruben Loftus-Cheek (£1.5m).

However, Graham Potter told reporters that none of the quartet are ready for 90 minutes.

Jamie Vardy (£3.6m) has trained with Leicester this week and will be assessed while Ricardo Pereira (£3m) is said to be “looking good” but the Foxes’ new centre-back, Harry Souttar (£2m), is a doubt with a hip problem.

Leeds’ top scorer had surgery on his ankle this week

Rodrigo (£4m) will be sidelined until the March after undergoing surgery.

The Spanish forward picked up an ankle injury during Leeds’ FA Cup victory over Accrington Stanley.

Newcastle striker Alexander Isak (£3.4m) is a doubt for West Ham’s visit to St James’ Park having incurred a concussion in midweek.

Bruno Guimaraes (£3m) is suspended for the fixture but the Magpies’ new boy Anthony Gordon (£1.9m) may make his debut.

Ibrahima Konate (£3.9m) has been added to an injury list that also includes Virgil van Dijk (£4.9m), Roberto Firmino (£3.7m), Diogo Jota (£4.7m) and Luis Diaz (£5.2m).

Pep Guardiola confirmed that John Stones (£5.3m) may not return until March but believes Phil Foden (£4.7m) “has a chance” of being involved against Spurs after his return to training.

On the other side of Manchester, Christian Eriksen (£3m) is expected to be out for at least two months with loanee Marcel Sabizter (£2.5m) likely to take the Dane’s place in Man United’s midfield.

Diogo Dalot (£3.7m) has returned to training but it’s not clear whether he’s ready to be involved against Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon.

Man City will be without Stones in the coming weeks

As for the Eagles, Wilfried Zaha (£4.5m) will be out for a couple of weeks with a hamstring issue.

The good news for Brighton fans is that Evan Ferguson (£2.8m) seems to have avoided serious damage from Fabinho’s (£1.7m) horror tackle last weekend.

The 18-year-old will be assessed and may yet make a swift recovery.

Alexis Mac Allister (£3.2m) is suspended for Bournemouth’s visit to the Amex.
