Aston Villa Predicted lineup - FPL Gameweek 13


Press Conference

Bertrand Traoré is still "some weeks away" from a return, "so we need to be patient on that one," said Steven Gerrard. "Morgan Sanson has trained fully. He'll travel with us and be part of the squad. Douglas Luiz will come in as well, so positive news from an injury point of view." There was also good news regarding long-term absentee Trezeguet, who hasn't featured since rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament in April. "He is training well, and he's completed his first full week of training. The idea with him will be to complete a second week and then look to get him some game minutes in an under-23 fixture."

Pending Evaluation

  • Douglas Luiz (hamstring) - Will be included in the travelling squad.

Ruled Out 

  • Trezeguet (knee) - One week of full training. Will build minutes with the Under-23s from next month.
  • Bertrand Traore (thigh) - Confirmation that the winger will be sidelined for "some time."

Burnley Predicted lineup - FPL Gameweek 13


Press Conference

Ashley Barnes is "out of action" after tearing a muscle in his thigh. "So, that is going to take a bit of time to calm down, I think. It certainly won't be days; it will be weeks." Jay Rodriguez and Matej Vydra report muscle tightness, but Sean Dyche is hopeful that both players can make the game. James Tarkowski and Ashley Westwood are suspended after collecting their fifth caution of the campaign.

Pending Evaluation

Chelsea Predicted lineup - FPL Gameweek 13


Press Conference

Ben Chilwell is out after imaging revealed he suffered a partial tear of his anterior cruciate ligament against Juventus. "The decision is to treat it conservatively. The next six weeks will tell the story, if he makes it or if he will need surgery." Mateo Kovacic is out of the game, while Kante is a major doubt. "N'Golo twisted his knee a little bit. He feels better, but it seems he will be out for some days. We still have a little hope, but it's almost a miracle if he makes it." Romelu Lukaku is likely to be named on the bench again. "The possibility he starts is not very high because we can't be sure what happens in the match. We have to find the balance [of] giving minutes and being absolutely competitive for 90 minutes." There was no update offered on Kai Havertz, although he worked with the group after missing out midweek.

Pending Evaluation

  • Kai Havertz (hamstring) - Missed out as a precautionary measure midweek. No update from Thomas Tuchel on Friday.
  • N'Golo Kante (knee) - Felt a "sharp pain" following a twist in the Champions League. Would need a "miracle" to play against Manchester United.

Ruled Out

  • Ben Chilwell (ACL knee) - Partial tear. Nonsurgical treatment initially, and then take another look in the new year.
  • Mateo Kovacic (hamstring) - Injured in training and ruled out for "some weeks." No immediate return insight.

Press Conference

James McArthur is the only player ruled out through injury after Nathan Ferguson took part in training this week. However, the 21-year -old is still some way off being considered after close to two years out. There is no RTP timeframe for McArthur. "What we decided to do with the doctor is evaluate the progress he is making every week, and things are moving well." Will Hughes is yet to feature for Palace, but he could get his chance this weekend. "Players have to be ready, as we get to a time where the team needs them; they have to perform. Will is one of them. I'm really happy with what he is showing me in training."

Everton Predicted lineup - FPL Gameweek 13


Press Conference

A second scan confirms the adductor injury suffered by Demarai Gray last time out is not as severe as first thought. "He was in a light training session (Thursday). So, we will see if he can be available." Yerry Mina is "doing well, but [he is] still not ready" while the game comes too soon for Dominic Calvert-Lewin. Abdoulaye Doucoure is back with the group. "He's one player who maybe could be available. It's a metatarsal issue, [so] if he's fine, then he's fine. We have to make sure everything is healed, and the player is confident. It's always a risk coming back from injury, but not a massive risk." There's no timeline for Tom Davies, and Richarlison will sit this one out after accumulating five yellow cards.

Pending Evaluation 

  • Abdoulaye Doucoure (foot) - An outside chance of returning this weekend, although he lacks sharpness.
  • Demarai Gray (groin) - A second scan reveals the injury is not as bad as first thought. Major doubt, but not ruled out.
  • Allan (muscle) - Rafa is confident that the Brazilian midfielder can recover.

Ruled Out

  • Dominic Calvert-Lewin (thigh) - The striker could be another two weeks.
  • Tom Davies (knee) - Confirmation of his injury, but no news on when he could be back.
  • Yerry Mina (hamstring) - Taking longer than initially thought, but hopeful of a return very soon.
  • Andre Gomes (calf) - Still no word on the fitness of the midfielder.

Press Conference

Jamie Shackleton, Raphinha and Rodrigo will be available at the Amex Stadium. Luke Ayling is healthy and will "probably" play for the under-23s on Monday. "The ones finishing their recovery are Robin Koch and Patrick Bamford. And when pressed for more information on Bamford, Marcelo Bielsa said.

Leicester City Predicted lineup - FPL Gameweek 13


Press Conference

Centre-back Jonny Evans should be okay after a late selection change on Thursday night. "He's felt [his thigh] from time to time over this last few weeks, and he felt it in the warm-up," revealed Brendan Rodgers. "The last thing I want to do is lose another player to an injury." Youri Tielemans could be back within the next "couple of weeks", while a "lingering" hamstring issue will keep Ricardo Pereira out until mid-December. James Maddison was withdrawn as a precaution after taking a knock against Legia Warsaw.
