FPL GW11 predicted lineups and team news from all Premier League clubs from injury guru Ben Dinnery ahead of the upcoming Gameweek. They will be regularly updated throughout and following the press conferences.

Check out our Ultimate Guide to FPL Gameweek 11 for all the key information, stats and tips you need going into the weekend’s action.

Arsenal

The Gunners slumped to their worst start to a season since 1981 after the loss at home to Wolves left them in 14th place following five defeats from their first ten fixtures. However, Sundays' game was overshadowed by a sickening clash of heads which left Raul Jimenez in hospital with a fractured skull and David Luiz with a deep laceration. The clash once again called into question Premier League concussion protocols after the Brazilian had been cleared to return to play on 18 minutes, but with blood seeping through his heavily bandaged forehead, Luiz did not feel comfortable to re-emerge after the break and Rob Holding replaced him. With options on the bench, Mikel Arteta may decide to err on the side of caution and rest the centre-back. Calum Chambers and Pablo Mari are building fitness with the U23s, but Arteta could easily switch to a back three with Kieran Tierney moving alongside Gabriel. Thomas Partey is "pushing" to be included, but Arteta insists that the midfielder will need a scan to determine how the injury has healed before being considered for a return.

Predicted lineup

Press Conference Update

Mikel Arteta says Thomas Partey is "putting a lot of pressure" on him to be involved in this weekends' north London derby. "He is training [Friday], and let's see how it goes in the next few days." Calum Chambers and Pablo Mari made successful competitive returns in the Europa League following long-term injuries. Still, it may be too soon to be considered for the Premier League. "It’s great news because those boys have been working really hard with the medical department," said Arteta. "They put in a lot of hours to give themselves the chance to play and perform the way they did today. We have another two really good characters back with us, and it’s really good news." Mohamed Elneny and Sead Kolasinac are back after returning negative swabs meaning Gabriel Martinelli is the only definitive injury absentee. David Luiz could feature. "I think he will be fit to play if the scar is healing properly and he is comfortable heading the ball, there shouldn't be any problems." Nicolas Pepe serves the second game of his ban, and there could be a new role on the horizon for Alexandre Lacazette. "It was a good game in that [No.10] position, I think it suits him, it gives him a bit of freedom, and he is really good at linking play in those positions. He worked really hard and scored a beautiful goal."

Pending Evaluation 

  • Thomas Partey (thigh) - Putting pressure on Arteta to be involved this weekend.
  • David Luiz (head) - Deep laceration. Ruled out of Thursday nights' Europa game. Late decision.

Ruled Out

  • Gabriel Martinelli (knee surgery) – Targeting a return-to-play in early 2021.

Brighton and Hove Albion

Despite the loss of Neal Maupay to a hamstring issue early on against Liverpool, the Seagulls were well worth a share of the spoils regardless of how their equaliser came… a hotly-disputed penalty which was awarded after Andy Robertson caught Danny Welbeck while attempting a clearance. Adam Lallana also limped off for the second successive game due to a persistent groin problem and Graham Potter will assess both players ahead of Monday. Tariq Lamptey returns after serving a ban, and the wing-back is likely to be back despite a decent performance by Joël Veltman.

Predicted lineup

Press Conference Update

Tariq Lamptey will be available for selection after serving a one-game suspension last weekend. However, Adam Lallana misses the game against his former employers, and Davy Propper is once again ruled out. "He has had an up and down - more down - season. He is just taking steps but probably not for this squad," confirmed Graham Potter. It is not his Achilles - the Dutchman is not back to "full power" following his recent illness. A decision on Neal Maupay, who is working with the physios, will be made nearer kick-off with the fixture scheduled to take place on Monday night. "It seems it wasn't too bad. Positive for us, positive for him."

Pending Evaluation

  • Christian Walton (ankle) -  Back in full training. Building fitness.
  • Davy Propper (illness) - Back on the training pitches, but unlikely to make Monday due to a lack of fitness.
  • Neal Maupay (hamstring) - Better than expected. Working with the physios. Late test.
  • Alex Mac Allister (COVID-19) - Rejoined the group after submitted a negative swab test.

Ruled Out 

  • Jose Izquierdo (Knee surgery) – Continues to build fitness with the Under-23s.
  • Florin Andone (Knee) - Ruled out for the remainder of the year.
  • Adam Lallana (groin) - Withdrawn for the second successive game vs Liverpool and expected to miss a few weeks.

Burnley

Sean Dyche is said to be looking for any underlying causes for the injury problems which have blighted the Clarets start to the campaign. Burnley were without six players at The Etihad, most notably Nick Pope, and it was one to forget for his replacement Bailey Peacock-Farrell who shipped five. However, barring long-termer Jack Cork, they should be close to full strength although Dyche feels Johann Berg Gudmundsson is still not there yet in terms of his fitness.

Predicted lineup

Press Conference Update

Phil Bardsley and Johann Berg Gudmundsson, back and calf respectively, are rated as "touch and go" for the early kick-off, but Robbie Brady (hamstring) has come through training, and barring a reaction he will be available. An ankle injury keeps Jack Cork sidelined, although he has stepped up his rehab and is taking part in light sessions. Dale Stephens joined in with the group this week, and Nick Pope and Josh Brownhill are back in contention. The Clarets had six players missing for the trip to Manchester City which prompted a probe into their recent problems. "We had a mass of injuries after the nine games last season. When the players came back, they were really fit. We have looked at training schedules, days off, I think it is awkward to define a reason."

Pending Evaluation

  • Nick Pope (head) - Should be fine for a return on Saturday.
  • Phil Bardsley (back) - Late fitness test. "Touch and go."
  • Josh Brownhill (back) - Full training ahead of the game with Everton.
  • Robbie Brady (hamstring) - Cleared to return to the Clarets squad.
  • Dale Stephens (hamstring) - Training as normal and should return to the 18.
  • Johann Berg Gudmundsson (muscle) - Rated as "touch and go".

Ruled Out 

  • Jack Cork (ankle) - Training on grass but still some time away from joining the group.

Chelsea

The Blues travel to Seville in the Champions League on Wednesday evening, and after the return of Christian Pulisic in week ten, Frank Lampard has a full complement of players to choose from. The Blues are expected to heavily rotate midweek ahead of a busy schedule so look for signs from those rested to hopefully give some insight into Saturdays' line-up versus Leeds United.

Predicted lineup

Press Conference Update

Frank Lampard confirms the Blues have a clean bill of health... "Everyone is fit!" Chelsea secured a great result in Seville midweek when Olivier Giroud became the oldest player in the competition to score a hat-trick. However, Lampard insists that he will not be giving assurances to any player over game time. "All you want is for players, when they’re out of the team, to train well, get themselves in the team and perform like Oli did the other day because then that gives me nice problems. I’m happy with him - his form is good, and he’s training well."

Crystal Palace

Wilfried Zaha was scheduled for a COVID-19 test last Saturday, and if the results came back negative, then the winger will be able to rejoin the squad in the hope of playing some part at West Brom. The Eagles were poor against Newcastle, and with the game seemingly destined for nil-nil, two lapses in concentration cost Palace as Callum Wilson and Joelinton sealed three-points for the visitors. The loss could see Roy Hodgson freshen his side – Jeffrey Schlupp was a surprise starter alongside Jordan Ayew – but with Christian Benteke and Michy Batshuayi available then there are alternatives after successive blanks. Joel Ward will be pushing Nathaniel Clyne, and Luka Milivojevic is training, and he will be looking to establish himself in the side once again. Cheikhou Kouyate returned to his preferred midfield role last time out with Gary Cahill paired with Scott Dann in the heart of the defence.

Predicted lineup

Press Conference Update

Roy Hodgson has confirmed that Wilfried Zaha is back in contention after missing the last two games. "He’s been with us since his negative test [last Saturday] and is ready to go.” Luka Milivojevic is also training with the group - the skipper is "knocking on [the] door" and pushing to be included. "He's another one unfortunately when he went away with Serbia he contracted the virus. He's been over that for a good period of time... He's now back and knocking quite loudly on the door for a place in the team. We're in a good position at the moment for players who are able to play and wanting to play."

Pending Evaluation

  • Wilfried Zaha (COVID-19) - Trained with the group since returning a negative test.
  • Luka Milivojevic (COVID-19) - Pushing to be included in the matchday squad.

Ruled Out

  • Nathan Ferguson (Knee) – Individualised programme. No timescale at the moment.
  • Connor Wickham (Muscle) - Suffered a significant setback. Out long-term.
  • Wayne Hennessey (Undisclosed) - Injured playing for Wales. Out until January 2021 at the earliest.

Everton

With Seamus Coleman and Lucas Digne both sidelined, Carlo Ancelotti resisted the urge to opt for two recognised full-backs. Instead, Alex Iwobi and Tom Davies were given their chance to shine… It didn't exactly go to plan, and the Toffees slumped to a fourth loss in five, and they face another tricky trip to Turf Moor this weekend. Jonjoe Kenny should be better placed in terms of his fitness, but 20-year-old Niels Nkounkou failed to make the 18 on Saturday, and there are no guarantees he will add to his 69 top-flight minutes. A recall for either would probably result in a switch to a back four with Ben Godfrey being the unlucky player while poor results in recent games cost Yerry Mina his place against Leeds.

Predicted lineup

Press Conference Update

No fresh injury concerns for Everton who travel to Turf Moor in the early kick-off. Seamus Coleman has been seen out on the training pitches, but he won't be considered for the game. The skipper is currently working on an individualised programme. Lucas Digne and Jean-Philippe Gbamin are the only other players missing through injury. Carlo Ancelotti looks set to continue with Tom Davies and Alex Iwobi at wing-back. "Nkounkou was not in the squad because I have eleven players; I decided to put Iwobi on the left. He's still young, he needs more experience, he needs to work more, but I am satisfied [with] what he's doing. He will have time because we have a lot of games."

Ruled Out

  • Jean-Philippe Gbamin (Achilles) – Final phase of his recovery. Around 2-3 weeks away from a return.
  • Seamus Coleman (hamstring) - Suffered a setback while training with Ireland. Assessed GW-to-GW.
  • Lucas Digne (ankle) - The club confirms the full-back could be sidelined for up to three months after surgery.

Fulham

The Lilywhites were fully deserving of three-points at the King Power, a game which saw Ivan Cavaleiro convert Fulham's first penalty in four attempts. Out of the Bottom Three and finally adjusting to life in the top-flight, Scott Parker's men will have it all to do at Manchester City. Still, they will arrive full of confidence, and I cannot see them changing from a 5-4-1 which will see Aleksander Mitrovic benched for the third game running.

Predicted lineup

Press Conference Update

“No fresh injuries," from the win at Leicester. Kenny Tete will not be available this weekend. "It’s still too early. He’s in a good way in terms of where he is. Other than that, it’s a full squad; everyone else is fit." While Scott Parker was giving nothing away regarding his team, the Lilywhites could be unchanged. “I pick the best team that I think will have the best effect on the game and get points from the game,” he said. “We have a winning team that got a good result, so they’ve put themselves in a position to start, but I have a group of players here, and with the schedule coming up, I’ll pick the best team available. Monday [has] done a lot for morale."

Pending Evaluation

Ruled Out

  • Terence Kongolo (foot) - Hasn't played since breaking a bone in his foot in February.
  • Kenny Tate (calf) - "Modified" training with the group, but it shouldn't be too long before he's back in contention.

Leeds United

Back-to-back clean sheets, which have coincided with the return of Kalvin Phillips, have helped steady the ship and Marcelo Bielsa could name an unchanged side for the third successive game. Jack Harrison appeared to be limping after he was replaced late on at Goodison Park, but there was no update forthcoming post-match, and it looks like we'll have to wait until the pre-match media briefing before we get a handle on the current injury situation.

Predicted lineup

Press Conference Update

Marcelo Bielsa says Diego Llorente has recovered from the groin injury which has kept the Spaniard sidelined for almost two months. He will build fitness with the development side before being considered for the first-team. "The ideal thing would be for him to play with the U23s because it’s been a while since he’s played now. We will see, we hope we don’t have to accelerate his process." Jamie Shackleton and Pablo Hernandez will not be available for Saturday. Adam Forshaw remains out long-term as he is not yet taking part in full training. "Highs and lows," Bielsa said on his recovery. "Up until this point he hasn’t been able to do any football practice." Jack Harrison appears to be okay despite limping down the sidelines at Goodison Park last weekend.

Pending Evaluation

  • Diego Llorente (groin) - Available for selection but Bielsa says the Spaniard needs to build fitness with the U23s first.

Ruled Out

  • Adam Forshaw (hip) - "Highs and lows". Bielsa reveals the midfielder will look to build fitness and confidence with the U23s before rejoining the first team.
  • Gaetano Berardi (ACL knee) - Long-term. Hopeful of a return in early 2021.
  • Jamie Shackleton (muscle) - No word on a potential return but ruled out of this one.
  • Pablo Hernandez (muscle) - Suffered a "minor" muscle injury during the break.

Leicester City

A trip to Ukraine on Thursday will provide an ideal opportunity for Brendan Rodgers to hand Ricardo Pereira, Caglar Soyuncu and Wilfried Ndidi some competitive minutes with the Foxes already assured of their progression to the next phase of the Europa League competition. However, I would not expect any of the trio to be back in the Premier League side on Sunday given the severity of their recent injuries. It sounds as though Timothy Castagne will not play in Europe, and similar to last weekend, Rodgers will make a late call but will not be forced into taking any risks with options elsewhere. The unexpected loss to Fulham could prompt a reshuffle, but fatigue and the busy schedule will not be used as an excuse.

Predicted lineup

Press Conference Update

Leicester saw three players return from long-term injury in the Europa League on Thursday night, but Caglar Soyuncu looks to have suffered a setback after being replaced on 17 minutes. “It’s just in around his groin," Brendan Rodgers reported post-match. "It looks like he overstretched a touch, and he felt a twinge, so we’ll need to analyse that when we get back on Friday." However, there was better news on Ricardo Pereira who did well during his first-half cameo. "It’s just a process with him, playing games and stepping up to this level, having been out for so long, so we’re happy with that.” Meanwhile, Wilfried Ndidi also came through his 55-minutes unscathed. "That was the plan, and he’s come through that well, so that was a real positive for us." Elsewhere, Wes Morgan could miss out after a persistent back problem flared up in Ukraine. “He’s had an issue with his back for the period I’ve been here, and he aggravated that," Rodgers said. “It was unfortunate, but it was too sore for him to carry on.” Timothy Castagne is "not too far away."

  • Caglar Soyuncu (groin) - "It looks like he overstretched a touch, and he felt a twinge, so we'll need to analyse that when we get back on Friday."
  • Ricardo Pereira (groin) - "Very early on in the game, he went to push off and he may have just had a slight strain in his groin area because the pitch was very slippy."
  • Timothy Castagne (hamstring) - Rodgers confirms the wing-back will not be ready.

Liverpool

Trent Alexander-Arnold could be back on the training pitches before the end of the week, but GW12 is more realistic in terms of a return even though Neco Williams has been less than convincing in his absence. "We had a long talk with Neco, we think he has more in the locker," Jurgen Klopp said after the 1-0 win over Ajax. "The season started after a difficult summer with lockdown, a short pre-season and then Trent is out. Neco was not in the best shape - tonight he showed glimpses [but] he can be so much better." Alisson Becker (hamstring) missed out in the Champions League, and with the Brazilian likely to be sidelined again, goalkeeping duties could fall to Caoimhin Kelleher who proved himself to be an able deputy. "It is a situation, which I have to say, it was easy to decide for Caoimhin because he just deserves it, but it was difficult to decide against Adrian because he did really well for us: a lot of clean sheets, what a season last year. He did a really good job, but tonight we needed the package of Caoimhin – and he is a top talent anyway, but a really good shot-stopper and a top footballer." Klopp played down knocks for Jordan Henderson and Andy Robertson while Thiago Alcantara is still a "few weeks" away from a return.
