Arsenal Predicted lineup - FPL Gameweek 4

Press Conference

Mo Elneny (hamstring) is aiming for a return to full training within two to three weeks. Still, there is better news regarding Gabriel, Eddie Nketiah, Thomas Partey and Ben White, who have all returned to full training and are available for selection. Granit Xhaka begins a three-match ban following his dismissal against Manchester City. However, he would've missed out anyway after testing positive for COVID-19 earlier this month: "He's still in his country [and] he needs to stay there until Saturday," confirmed Mikel Arteta. "As soon as he's okay to travel, he'll be here with us." The Arsenal boss believes "almost everybody will be available" for the visit of Norwich although, at the time of Thursdays'media briefing, several players had not returned from international duty. Emile Smith Rowe is one of those following his release from the under-21 squad. "He’s carrying an illness. He’s not been feeling good. He could not stay there, and the England national team was really positive about letting him go because everybody could see he wasn’t available. Let’s see how he is in the next couple of days." Arsenal will complete the relevant documentation to ensure new signing Takehiro Tomiyasu is registered for the game. "We need the work permit first. The club is trying hard to achieve that in the next couple of hours. He's back in the country right now. I will meet him for the first time today probably, and train with him, see how he is and get a feel for it. He's been playing, so he should be completely fit, and yeah, we've been impressed. That's the reason why we decided to sign him."

Good news from the Bees camp. "Everyone is fit and available for selection that means Frank Onyeka can join the squad (after missing Villa with COVID-19)," said Thomas Frank.

Brighton and Hove Albion Predicted lineup - FPL Gameweek 4

Press Conference

Lamptey is progressing well, and Graham Potter hopes that the wing-back can return later this month. "Tariq played in an internal game and came through fine. Without putting a definite time scale on it, there's a possibility he could be involved in the Carabao Cup." Leandro Trossard and Jakub Moder won't be back until Friday. Solly March is available, although a place on the bench seems most likely. Aaron Connolly will be assessed after picking up a glute problem with Ireland. "He has recovered quite well, trained lightly today, and hopefully, he can be involved in the squad for Brentford." New signing Marc Cucurella will be involved after making a good impression since his arrival, but this weekend comes too soon for Dan Burn. "Jurgen (Locadia) is back in with us, he's been training, and it's just about getting him up to speed."

Pending Evaluation

  • Solly March (hamstring) - Cleared for a return but may not be ready to start.
  • Kjell Scherpen (ankle) - Suffered ligament damage in pre-season, but the summer signing won't be too far away.
  • Aaron Connolly (glute) - Missed the Republic of Ireland's 1-1 draw with Serbia but returned to light training on Thursday.

Ruled Out 

  • Tariq Lamptey (hamstring surgery) - Targeting a return in the Carabao Cup later this month.
  • Dan Burn (knee) - Still too early for the big defender.
  • Jurgen Locadia (fitness) - Returns after 18 months away from the club, but Graham Potter insists he does have a future at Brighton.

Burnley Predicted lineup - FPL Gameweek 4

Press Conference

New signing Maxwel Cornet will be assessed following his recent arrival. The forward played for the Ivory Coast against Cameroon this week and picked up a knock. "We will check his fitness out. There are a couple of standard tests that we do, so we will see how he is feeling. He had a bit of a dead leg from the game he was involved in, but I don't think it is serious." Another new signing, Nathan Collins, will also have a test, having been ruled out of the Republic of Ireland’s World Cup qualifiers."He's pretty good; he's better than we thought. We'll make a decision over the next couple of days. He's on the grass already, and he's active - not with us, with the physios. It's favourable news, I would say." Kevin Long and Dale Stephens are making good progress, and Connor Roberts is getting back to full fitness following groin surgery in the summer. "It's nine weeks since I had the operation, and the surgeon said 12 weeks, and I should be back playing. I'm a little bit ahead of schedule," he said earlier this month.

Pending Evaluation

  • Nathan Collins (knock) - Withdrawn from the Republic of Ireland squad. No further details were given.
  • Maxwel Cornet (dead leg) - To be assessed, but Sean Dyche does not think the problem is serious.

Ruled Out 

  • Kevin Long (Achilles) - Light training following surgery in the summer.
  • Dale Stephens (ankle) - Suffered a slight setback on the training pitches following surgery. No timeline currently.
  • Connor Roberts (groin) - Slightly ahead of schedule after surgery. Hoping to be back later this month.

Everton Predicted lineup - FPL Gameweek 4

Press Conference

Rafa Benitez reveals the hamstring injury suffered by Seamus Coleman on international duty "is not very bad," and the skipper could make Monday nights' game. Ben Godfrey and Yerry Mina have returned to full training. They could also feature, while Salomon Rondon is in line for his Everton debut after joining the Blues from Chinese side Dalian Professional on deadline day. James Rodriguez has been training with the team, but he won't take part. "Obviously, we've been talking about his future and had some clubs interested. He is still here but needs match fitness... If James stays, we have to find the right games, and he has to show his commitment." No word on Dominic Calvert-Lewin, although the striker has been pictured with the group.

Pending Evaluation 

  • Dominic Calvert-Lewin (toe and thigh) - Passed fit and working on the training pitches.
  • James Rodriguez (fitness) - Lacks sharpness and is not likely to be considered just yet.

Dan James, Stuart Dallas, Mateusz Klich and Firpo are all available this weekend. Marcelo Bielsa believes Patrick Bamford will benefit from his involvement with England. "The higher the competition, the better his growth is going to be. Apart from that, in this case, the manager of England is a great manager that will facilitate his development." Robin Koch remains out... the only definite absentee.

Pending Evaluation

  • Mateusz Klich (COVID-19) - Comes into the managers' thinking after completing a period of isolation.

Leicester City Predicted lineup - FPL Gameweek 4

Press Conference

Ricardo Pereira looks to have recovered from the hamstring injury that forced him off at Carrow Road. "He trained today," Brendan Rodgers said on Thursday. "He came through a session and looked very good.” James Justin and Wesley Fofana are the only definite injury absentees while Ayoze Perez is suspended. A late decision will be made on the availability of Jonny Evans and Jannik Vestergaard. "They are progressing very well. We’ve had a good international break in terms of players getting fitness. Hopefully, all those players will be available. They’re not going to be 100 per cent. We only have three subs, so we need to be sure they’re going to last." Timothy Castagne and Youri Tielemans will be assessed on their return. "The whole squad aren’t back until tomorrow. It’s always a challenge, but you reset and then get excited. It’s a brilliant game for us, so we have to connect back quickly." Ademola Lookman is expected to be named in the matchday squad. "He’s a top talent. I wanted to take him to Celtic when he was at Charlton. He’s going to have an impact. He’s available. He looks fit and strong. If he doesn’t start, he may play some part in the game. He can play in a number of positions. His preferred is off the left side. He’s very balanced. He’s got two good feet. His contribution will be dependent on the tactic we want to use. Harvey is more direct.”

Pending Evaluation

  • Ryan Bertrand (COVID-19) - Cleared and available.
  • Jonny Evans (plantar fasciitis) - Stayed at Seagrave over the break. He won't be 100 per cent. A late call on his involvement.
  • Jannik Vestergaard (knee) - Stayed at Seagrave over the break. He won't be 100 per cent. A late call on his involvement.
  • Ricardo Pereira (hamstring) - Trained normally on Thursday. Should be passed fit.

Ruled Out

  • James Justin (ACL) - On schedule to return around late October or early November.
  • Wesley Fofana (lower leg) - Fractured fibula and dislocated ankle. The defender will not play again until 2022.
  • Nampalys Mendy (groin) - Picked up an injury playing for Senegal. Could return to training in September.

Banned

  • Ayoze Perez - Serves the second game of his ban after receiving a straight red in GW2.
