Premier League Injury Update – Gameweek 32

Aston Villa vs Chelsea – Sat 2nd April – 12:45

Micah Richards, Jack Grealish, and Adama Traore are all hoping to be back to full fitness in time to face Chelsea, although Libor Kozak and Jordan Amavi remain sidelined after an already lengthy spell out.

Diego Costa is suspended for this one, while Eden Hazard, Kurt Zouma, and Radamel Falcao are all expected to miss out through injury for Chelsea.

West Ham vs Crystal Palace – Sat 2nd April – 15:00

Defensive trio Sam Byram, James Collins, and Carl Jenkinson are likely to miss out for West Ham, but James Tomkins is hoping to be back in action.

Emmanuel Adebayor, Yohann Cabaye, Mile Jedinak, and Connor Wickham are all doubts for the struggling Crystal Palace on Saturday. Marouane Chamakh is out as well to leave Crystal Palace typically short on striking options, with James McArthur and Kwesi Appiah remaining sidelined too.

Sunderland vs West Brom – Sat 2nd April – 15:00

Sunderland are hoping that late fitness tests come out positive for the likes of Billy Jones, Lamina Kone, Younes Kaboul, and Whabi Khazri. Promising youngster Duncan Watmore isn’t going to be back until the end of April though.

Callum McManaman could be fit enough to make the bench for West Brom, but midfielder James Morrison and Chris Brunt are both sidelined, the former for another week or so and the latter until October.

Stoke vs Swansea – Sat 2nd April – 15:00

Stoke have a number of worrying injury concerns for this one, with Geoff Cameron, Glenn Whelan, Erik Pieters, and Xherdan Shaqiri all doubtful for the game. Ryan Shawcross, Jon Walters, Jack Butland, Glen Johnson, and Marc Wilson are all definitely sidelined as well, with Butland’s international duty injury potentially giving Shay Given a chance to impress for Stoke.

Swansea’s injury list finally has a small amount of content. Leon Britton is a doubt for the Welsh side, while Andre Ayew will miss out for a week or so. The Swans are still the healthiest team in the Premier League though.

Norwich vs Newcastle – Sat 2nd April – 15:00

Steven Naismith and Ryan Bennet are hoping to return to action for Norwich, while Nathan Redmond will have to wait another week or so. Alex Tettey remains sidelined.

Darryl Janmaat and Cheikh Tiote are optimistic about their recovery chances for Newcastle, but they still have nine other players likely to miss out. Rob Elliot and Tim Krul’s injuries leave Newcastle relying on their 3rd choice keeper until the end of the season, with both keepers inexplicably suffering from ACL knee injuries. Paul Dummett, Sylvain Marveaux, Fabricio Coloccini, Kevin Mbabu, Massadio Haidara, Gabriel Obertan, and Craig Good are also expected to be sidelined.

Bournemouth vs Manchester City – Sat 2nd April – 15:00

Harry Arter, Josh King, and Junior Stanislas are all doubts for Bournemouth’s hosting of Manchester City, while long term injuries Callum Wilson and Tyrone Mings remain in rehabilitation with their ACL knee injuries.

Manchester City’s defence remains depleted, with Joe Hart, Vincent Kompany, and Nicolas Otamendi unlikely to make an appearance. Yaya Toure is also sidelined along with fellow midfielders Fabian Delph, Samir Nasri, Kevin De Bruyne, and Raheem Sterling.

Arsenal vs Watford – Sat 2nd April – 15:00

Arsenal’s midfield injury crisis continues as Mathieu Flamini, Aaron Ramsey, Santi Cazorla, and Jack Wilshere all remain in recovery from a variety of injury problems.

Joel Ekstrand is nearing a recovery yet again as he continues to wait for his Premier League debut. Valon Behrami and Sebastian Prodl are also doubtful after a bout of illness.

Liverpool vs Tottenham Hotspur – Sat 2nd April – 17:30

Divock Origi, Roberto Firmino, and Alberto Moreno are doubtful for Liverpool’s hosting of Tottenham Hotspur. Joe Gomez, Danny Ings, Jordan Rossiter, and Lucas Leiva are definitely out of contention though.

Toby Alderweireld and Erik Lamela are both expected to be back to fitness in time for Saturday, but the same can’t be said of Nassim Bentaleb, Jan Vertonghen, and Clinton N’Jie, who are all hoping to be back later in April.

Leicester vs Southampton – Sun 3rd April – 13:30

Andy King is a slight doubt for Premier League leaders Leicester, but apart from that the only casualty remains Matthew James.

Striking duo Shane Long and Charlie Austin are doubts for Sunday’s clash, with Ryan Bertrand and perennial injury problem Jay Rodriguez also doubtful. Long term injury Florin Gardos is nearing a recovery from his knee problem.

Manchester United vs Everton – Sun 3rd April – 16:00

Bastian Schweinsteiger could miss out for Manchester United, along with Will Keane, Wayne Rooney, and Luke Shaw. Ashley Young, Phil Jones, and Ander Herrera are all doubts for the hosts as well.

John Stones and Bryan Oviedo are doubts for the visiting side on Sunday, while Stephen Pienaar, Tony Hibbert, and Tyias Browning remain sidelined.
