Premier League Injury Update – Gameweek 26

Sunderland vs Manchester United – Sat 13th Feb – 12:45

Fabio Borini, Jermain Defoe, and Billy Jones are all doubts for Sunderland heading into this difficult match against Manchester United. Key player Jeremain Lens is definitely sidelined, alongside Duncan Watmore, Younes Kaboul, Seb Larrson, and Adam Matthews.

Manchester United have a fair few players ruled out as well. Adnan Januzaj, Guillermo Varela, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo, and Antonio Valencia aren’t due back until later on in February, with Ashley Young, Luke Shaw, and Bastian Schweinsteiger joining them on the casualty list.

Norwich vs West Ham – Sat 13th Feb – 15:00

Norwich are hoping that Graham Dorrans recovers from a bout of illness in time to host West Ham on Saturday. The only other problem Norwich are harbouring is Andre Wisdom’s knee injury, which will keep him out until the end of the month.

Manuel Lanzini, Diafra Sakho, and Cheikhou Kouyate will all have to wait a couple of weeks before returning to the West Ham starting lineup. Carl Jenkinson, Joey O’Brien and Winston Reid are all out for an unknown amount of time too, whilst James Tomkins is going to miss another five weeks or so.

Swansea vs Southampton – Sat 13th Feb – 15:00

Ki Sung-Yeung is the only concern for Swansea heading into this game, but he’s expected to recover from his concussion in time to face Southampton.

Matt Targett and Steven Davis are both in line for a recovery for Southampton on Saturday. The perennially injury hit Jay Rodriguez won’t be back until the start of March, whilst Florin Gardos is expected to remain on the injury list for the entirety of this season.

Bournemouth vs Stoke – Sat 13th Feb – 15:00

It’s just the three big ones for Bournemouth. The trio of ACL knee injuries suffered by Bournemouth’s key players are the only problems they have at the moment. Max Gradel is hoping to be the first to return at the start of March, with Callum Wilson following on in April. Bournemouth’s record signing Tyrone Mings won’t be back until September though after playing just six minutes of football.

Jon Walters should be back in the fray for Stoke on Saturday, but Geoff Cameron, Ryan Shawcross, and Charlie Adam won’t return for a few weeks yet. Marc Wilson’s MCL knee injury will keep him out until April as well.

Everton vs West Brom – Sat 13th Feb – 15:00

Jon Stones and Tim Howard are both minor doubts for Everton coming into this game against West Brom. Muhamed Besic is hoping to be back next weekend, whilst Tyias Browning has been ruled out for the remainder of the season.

West Brom also have a number of doubts heading into this game. Jonny Evans, Chris Brunt, and Craig Dawson could all miss out on Saturday, whilst Gareth McAuley, James Morrison, and Callum McManaman are all going to be out for another few weeks.

Crystal Palace vs Watford – Sat 13th Feb – 15:00

Joe Ledley and Yannick Bolasie are both hoping to be back in action for Crystal Palace next weekend. James McArthur and Jason Puncheon are both out for an unknown amount of time, whilst Kwesi Appiah is still struggling with his ACL knee injury.

Miguel Britos Cabrera is expected to be back to full fitness for Watford following his thigh injury. Joel Ekstrand is still waiting to make his first Premier League appearance, but his recovery from an ACL knee injury seems to be taking a lifetime.

Chelsea vs Newcastle – Sat 13th Feb – 17:30

Kurt Zouma is expected to be out for six months after suffering a bad knee injury against Manchester United last weekend. Striking duo Diego Costa and Loic Remy are both expected to be available for Chelsea on Saturday though, although Radamel Falcao is still out.

Darryl Janmaar and Jack Colback are hoping to alleviate some of Newcastle’s injury worries by returning on Saturday. The same can’t be said of nine other players though, with Paul Dummett, Chancel Mbemba, Siem de Jong, Kevin Mbabu, Vurnon Anita, Massadio Haidara, Tim Krul, Gabriel Obertan, and Craig Good all frequenting the incredibly busy physio team at Newcastle.

Arsenal vs Leicester – Sun 14th Feb – 12:00

Arsenal’s injury crisis seems to be finally drawing to a close. They only have three players out injured at the moment, with Tomas Rosicky, Jack Wilshere, and Santi Cazorla all expected back in March. Danny Welbeck needs to build up some match fitness before returning to the starting line up though.

Jordan Schlupp’s hamstring injury will keep him out of the Leicester squad until the end of the month, whilst Matthew James is coming to the end of the long road to recovery from his ACL knee injury.

Aston Villa vs Liverpool – Sun 14th Feb – 14:05

Rudy Gestede and Alan Hutton are both hoping to return for Aston Villa. Carlos Sanchez, Libor Kozak, and Adama Traore will all have to wait a few weeks though. The extent of Jack Grealish’s injury isn’t fully clear yet, whilst Jordan Amavi is enduring a long spell on the sidelines.

Steven Caulker should be fully fit in time to play for Liverpool on Sunday, but the same can’t be said of Dejan Lovren, Martin Skrtel, and Jordan Rossiter, who will all miss another few weeks. Joe Allen, Danny Ings, and Joe Gomez are set for a longer spell on the sidelines though.

Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspur – Sun 14th Feb – 16:15

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany could be in line for a return to action on Sunday, with David Silva also hoping to be fit in time to face Spurs. Bacary Sagna, Wilfried Bony, and Elaquim Mangala will have to wait another week or so though. Jesus Navas will return at the start of March, but Kevin de Bruyne, Samir Nasri, and Fabian Delph will all have to wait until April though.

Tottenham Hotspur are looking fairly good in terms of injuries heading into this crucial Premier League title clash. Jan Vertonghen and Clinton N’Jie are their only injury problems for Sunday.
