Injuries and suspensions ahead of Dream Team Game Week 17 – Anthony Martial a doubt for Liverpool clash, Danny Ings out

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).
