Injuries and suspensions update ahead of Game Week 35 – Marcus Rashford illness concern

Dream Team brings you all the latest injury, suspension and selection updates ahead of Game Week 35 in one easily digestible dose.

The headline news is that Marcus Rashford (£7.2m), having returned to Man United training in the week, is a major doubt to face Bournemouth having fallen down with illness.

Speaking on the England international’s availability, Erik ten Hag said: “We have to see how he recovers during the day and see tomorrow.”

The 25-year-old, who features in 24.2% of teams, is the second-top points scorer in Dream Team this season.

Arsenal will be without first-choice defenders Gabriel (£3.4m) and Oleksandr Zinchenko (£3.2m) for the remainder of the campaign.

Mikel Arteta also said that Gabriel Martinelli’s (£4.8m) injury is “pretty nasty” and the Brazilian still needs to be assessed fully.

Rashford returned to training but is now struggling with illness

Eddie Howe revealed he has a “a few concerns” in midfield following Newcastle’s win over Brighton on Thursday night.

The Magpies’ tactician cited Joelinton (£3.5m) and Joe WIllock (£2.3m) as possible absentees, in addition to Sean Longstaff (£1.8m).

Nathan Ake (£5.4m) was Man City’s only absentee at home to Real Madrid in midweek but he may be in contention to feature against Chelsea on Sunday.

As for the visitors, Benoit Badiashile (£3.8m) has joined the list of Blues defenders on the sidelines after picking up an injury in training – Kalidou Koulibaly (£4.4m) is not yet ready to return either.

A toe injury will prevent Darwin Nunez (£4.6m) from taking part for Liverpool against Aston Villa on Saturday but Roberto Firmino (£3.5m) is available for the hosts.

Roy Hodgson told reporters that it’s “not looking that likely” Wilfried Zaha (£4m) will feature for Crystal Palace again this season.

Sam Allardyce will have to find a solution to Leeds’ left-back problem with Junior Firpo (£0.5m) suspended and Stuart Dallas still not ready to return having been sidelined for over a year.
