Arsenal Predicted lineup - FPL Gameweek 3

Press Conference

Ben White remains out for the Gunners: "He’s asymptomatic; he’s been feeling good. As quick as we can, we’re going to bring him back to playing games," Mikel Arteta confirmed on Thursday. Gabriel has an outside chance of making the bench. "He’s getting closer. He had a couple of sessions with the team, but we don’t know. Let’s see tomorrow how he is." Bukayo Saka picked up a knock during the League Cup win over West Brom, although he was able to complete 90-minutes. "He was limping after the match; we’ll see how that knee reacts, but he had a knock, yeah. Hopefully, he’s going to be OK." The rest of the players sidelined long-term remain out. Martin Odegaard is hoping to recover after making his second debut on Wednesday. "He’s a really fit boy. He's had a great pre-season with Madrid. He’s played enough minutes. Let’s see how he recovers from yesterday’s game, how he trains and if he’s ready to start."

Pending Evaluation 

  • Gabriel Magalhaes (knee) - Progressing well and training with the squad. Saturday may come too soon.
  • Hector Bellerin (thigh) - Back in training after missing the defeat to Chelsea.
  • Kieran Tierney (cramp) - Rested midweek. Fit and ready to go.
  • Willian (COVID-19) - Monitored ahead of the game but likely to miss out.
  • Bukayo Saka (knee) - Picked up a knock midweek but completed 90-minutes. Final check on Friday.

Ruled Out

  • Thomas Partey (ankle) - Suffered ligament damage during the friendly loss to Chelsea. Aiming to train before the international break.
  • Eddie Nketiah (ankle) - Targeting a return to training by early September.
  • Ben White (COVID-19) - Asymptomatic but ruled out of Saturdays' game. Back in game week four.

Aston Villa Predicted lineup - FPL Gameweek 3

Press Conference

“Ollie Watkins will train with us today," Dean Smith said on Friday. "If he gets through training, he’ll be available for selection.” But Brentford will come too soon for Leon Bailey, Bertrand Traore and Morgan Sanson; all three players are targeting a return after the break. Keinan Davis is around 3-4 weeks away from rejoining the group. Anwar El Ghazi is most definitely on this weekends' watchlist: “This season, he’s started really well and got his goal against Newcastle. He came off at 4-0 [vs Barrow] with two goals and two assists to his name, so it shows you the kind of form he’s in."

Pending Evaluation

  • Ollie Watkins (knee) - If the striker can train pain-free on Friday, then he will be included in the squad.

Ruled Out 

  • Trezeguet (knee) - Suffered an ACL rupture against Liverpool last season and may not play again this year.
  • Morgan Sanson (knee) - Training with the group and will get minutes over the international break.
  • Bertrand Traore (hamstring) - Ruled out until after the international break.
  • Leon Bailey (hamstring) - Not risked last time out after complaining of tightness and will not return until GW4.
  • Keinan Davis (knee) - Should be back in training by the end of September.

Ethan Pinnock has trained after taking another knock on his ankle midweek - the same contact injury he suffered at Palace (GW2).

Brighton and Hove Albion Predicted lineup - FPL Gameweek 3

Press Conference

Neal Maupay trained on Thursday morning, but Graham Potter needs to see how he reacts before deciding on his involvement. "We are hopeful he will be [ready for Saturday]." Danny Welbeck has a chance of making the bench, while Enock Mwepu is feeling a "lot better" after taking a knock in the cup; he has an outside chance of being involved. Tariq Lamptey is "making some good progress", and it is hoped that he can return in game week four. "[He's] getting stronger day by day and closer to full training. We're probably looking at the international break to step up a couple of things, but it's really good to see where he's at because he's had a long, frustrating road."

Pending Evaluation

  • Neal Maupay (shoulder) - Trained on Thursday morning. Strong possibility of being passed fit.
  • Enock Mwepu ( knock) - Not as bad as initially thought. Impact injury. Outside chance of making the game.
  • Danny Welbeck (hamstring) - Tweaked his hamstring in pre-season but looks set for a place on the bench.

Ruled Out 

  • Tariq Lamptey (hamstring surgery) - Hoping to step up his recovery during the international break.
  • Dan Burn (knee) - A slight ligament strain that rules the centre-back out of the opening game weeks.
  • Kjell Scherpen (ankle) - Suffered ligament damage during a pre-season friendly.
  • Joel Veltman (COVID-19 related) - Isolating after being identified as a close contact. Ruled out until after the break.

Press Conference 

No specific team news from Thomas Tuchel... Ruben Loftus-Cheek (COVID) has been spotted on the training pitches this week, but the Blues are expected to be without Christian Pulisic once again. Zouma has been ruled out: "Kurt is not with us, but it’s not because of any negotiations. He has some personal family issues, and we have allowed him to travel to France to sort these out. That is why he is not with us at the moment, nothing else, but I won’t lie to you, there have been some negotiations with West Ham."

Pending Evaluation
