GW10 injury updates: Stones, Fofana, Mitrovic and Isak injury news

It has a been almost a week since the end of GW9 and it is quite normal for a couple of players to pick up injuries.

Last week, Mitrovic was subbed off early, during the International break Isak, Stones and Patterson picked up injuries, Robertson has been sidelined for about two weeks now.

And just this week, Fofana got injured on Wednesday in Chelsea’s UCL game and Walker picked up an injury in last week’s Manchester Derby.

All these injuries, in one way or another affects we FPL managers and so in this article, we’d be providing you with some GW10 injury updates.

Liverpool team news

Jurgen Klopp on Liverpool’s team new:

Curtis Jones was in training yesterday, looked good. He’s probably the closest. Naby Keita and Ox Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, still a little bit away.

We have one new injury – Arthur Melo, It happened in the last session before the Rangers game. He injured a muscle, we have to wait for further assessment

Robertson and Jones update

Andy Robertson is running a lot, looks like he’s close. Probably Curtis now the closest, then Robbo, then the other two [Keita and Ox]

Newcastle team news

Allan Saint-Maximim news

Eddie Howe on Allan Saint-Maximin:

He’s doing okay. He’s trained well this week and we’re pleased with him. He’s making good progress. There’s a chance he could be in the squad tomorrow.

Howe on Alexander Isak:

Isak injury update

He’s running on grass and increasing his speed, so he’s in a good place. Hopefully it won’t be too long. He suffered a muscle problem to his thigh and his scan wasn’t overly bad but the medical team are just being cautious with him at this moment..

Howe also states that Joelinton has trained and he’s fine for tomorrow.

Brighton team news

Roberto de Zerbi on team news:

Moises Caicedo didn’t work with the team yesterday (Thursday). We will be looking at the situation today but I don’t think there will be a problem.

Wolves team news

Medical team statement on Neto:

Pedro sustained an ankle injury against West Ham on Saturday where he strained the lateral ligaments. Following further evaluation and a specialist opinion this week, it is planned for him to undergo surgery. This means that, unfortunately, he will not be fit for the upcoming World Cup.

On Hwang:

Hee Chan has made good progress this week and has rejoined team training.

Aston Villa team news

Steven Gerrard on team news:

Matty Cash is back in full training and available for Nottingham Forest. Calum Chambers did half a session today and he’ll continue to pick training up from now until Monday, so he’s got a decent chance of being involved as well.

Ludwig Augustinsson will be out for probably around three weeks, he’s got a hamstring injury on the back of the Leeds game

we’ve also got Leon Bailey, who’s got a small muscle issue so he’s a doubt for Monday but he’s not totally ruled out.

In terms of Lucas Digne, it’s a complicated one that’s going to rumble on for a few more weeks before we can assess it. So we’ll have some news in a couple of weeks but he (Digne) won’t be available for Forest.

Leicester team news

Brendan Rodgers on team news:

Wilfred Ndidi will probably be out for a little bit. He came back from international duty with a hamstring strain. He recovered well but he felt it at half time in the game and he was a little sore, so he (Ndidi) might miss a few weeks.

Papy Mendy has an issue with his knee so may struggle for the weekend but everyone else should be fine.

Bournemouth team news

Gary O’Neil on team news:

Lloyd [Kelly] won’t be with us again this weekend. He’s a week closer than he was last week but this weekend comes too quick for him.

[Joe Rothwell and Ben Pearson] have had a really good week; both of them have trained all week with us. It’s been really good to get them back out there, it’s a real positive…

Ryan Fredericks has been really promising on the grass and done some really good work.

Junior [Stanislas] is coming along as well, maybe not quite so far along as Ryan, Ben and Joe but Junior’s made good strides.

Brentford team news

Thomas Frank on injuries:

Pontus [Jansson] has got a hamstring injury. We don’t know how long it will be but he will be out for Saturday. Sergi Canos was not in the last squad but he’ll be available for selection.

Ethan [Pinnock] is fully available and an option. Of course, I have to take a decision. He will lack a bit of sharpness but he’s fit.

He’s been fit the last couple of weeks. The fitness is not an issue but it’s that sharpness we’re looking for from Pinnock every session, I need to decide who’s playing next to Ben Mee in that back four. Whether it’ll be Kristoffer Ajer – I think he’s been looking good – Ethan is also an option in the back four and I think Zanka also helped us when he stepped in there.

Frank on Lewis-Potter:

he’s not training with the squad but he’s been out running and he looked good. It’s good to have him out there, so hopefully he can be involved soon. But now will be too soon.

Frank on Norgaard:

[Christian] is still out. It’ll be weeks but the plan is to have him back before November.

Fulham team news

Marcos Silva on Mitrovic fitness:

He’s still a doubt. He was outside this morning, doing some work. He’s getting better but still a doubt.

Manchester United team news

Erik Ten Hag on Anthony Martial:

We want to do it really careful because he had a good pre-season. Good, fit also good impact and last 10 minutes of the pre-season friendly against Atletico Madrid he fell out and then he returned against Liverpool, so another injury. That put him far back. I cannot force it. I have to do it with a plan.

Chelsea and Fofana injury news

Man City and Walker injury update

With Walker sidelined for such a long time, and Stones out as well, Sergio Gomez who is 4.5million is looking like a cheap way to get into the Man City defense.
