FPL tips gameweek 24: Latest Premier League injury news

9 Min Read

Dominic Calvert-Lewin doubtful after FA Cup win

Everton are sweating over the fitness of several key players, including star striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.7m, 120pts) who was substituted with a hamstring problem during their 5-4 FA Cup win over Tottenham on Wednesday.

Left-back Lucas Digne (£6.1m, 48pts) also picked up a knock and was withdrawn in that match, and is now a doubt for Sunday’s game against Fulham.

James Rodriguez (£7.7m, 68pts) missed the Tottenham win entirely with a calf injury, and may also be absent on Sunday.

Callum Wilson out for ‘six to eight weeks’

Newcastle hitman Callum Wilson (£6.7m, 116pts) will be out for between six to eight weeks, manager Steve Bruce confirmed on Thursday.

Bruce said: “We’d hoped it was a grade one (tear), which would have been something like two or three weeks, but unfortunately it’s worse than that.

“We’ll have to be without him for the best part of six weeks, eight weeks, we won’t put a timescale on it but it’s a bad tear to his hamstring and it’s devastating news for us all.”

The 28-year-old Englishman has 10 goals and five assists this season, meaning he has been involved in 60 per cent of Newcastle’s Premier League goals.

Ruben Dias returns to training

Manchester City centre-back Ruben Dias (£6.1m, 98pts) was a doubt for their matches against Tottenham and Everton after missing their FA Cup win against Swansea with a fever.

However, Guardiola said on Friday: “Ruben came back today to training.”

The City manager also confirmed Rodri (£5.3m, 51pts) and Sergio Aguero (£10.3m, 6pts) were back in training.

Leicester’s Justin suffers ACL injury

Leicester utility man James Justin (£5.2m, 101pts) — who has not missed a minute of Premier League football — will be out for some time after injuring his ACL.

The 22-year-old was stretchered off with a knee injury in Leicester’s 1-0 win over Brighton on Wednesday night, and manager Brendan Rodgers gave an update on Friday about the defender’s condition.

“Sadly the scan hasn’t shown up so well for JJ, ” revealed Rodgers. “It is a massive blow. Looks like he has done his ACL. It is a devastating blow for us because he has been incredible. He was walking about after the game and we hoped he would be ok, but we had to wait for the scan.”
