Premier League Injury Update – Gameweek 33

West Ham vs Arsenal – Sat 9th April – 12:45

Defensive trio Sam Byram, James Collins, and Carl Jenkinson remain sidelined for West Ham. The former two should be back next weekend, but Jenkinson’s ACL knee injury means he faces a longer spell on the sidelines.

Santi Cazorla and Alex Oxlade Chamberlain are still out injured for Arsenal. However, good news for Arsenal as Aaron Ramsey, Tomas Rosicky, Mathieu Flamini, and Jack Wilshere are all fit again. Wilshere and Rosicky will probably be left out to build up their fitness though.

Crystal Palace vs Norwich – Sat 9th April – 15:00

Emmanuel Adebayor, Yohann Cabaye, and Conor Wickham are all doubts for Crystal Palace. Brede Hangelaand, Marouane Chamakh, James McArthur, and Kwesi Appiah remain out as well.

Russell Martin is expecting to have shaken off a knock for Norwich in time for Saturday’s game, but Alex Tettey remains injured.

Watford vs Everton – Sat 9th April – 15:00

Valon Behrami is hoping to be back to full fitness for Watford, and Joel Ekstrand is expected to (finally) be available for selection, although his match fitness will be non-existent.

Leon Osman and Stephen Pienaar are both doubts for this clash, whilst Tyias Browning and Tony Hibbert remain out of contention for Everton.

Swansea vs Chelsea – Sat 9th April – 15:00

Swansea’s injury list is long by their standards. Jordi Amat and Leon Britton are both doubts for the South Wales outfit, although they will be hoping to welcome back Andre Ayew after a couple of weeks out.

Gary Cahill is expected to return to the back line for Chelsea, but Nemanja Matic, Loic Remy, John Terry, and Eden Hazard will need a little while longer to recover. Kurt Zouma is out for the remainder of the season.

Southampton vs Newcastle – Sat 9th April – 15:00

Matt Targett and Shane Long are hoping to be back in action for Southampton on Saturday, and Florin Gardos is edging towards a long awaited return after his knee injury at the beginning of the season. Steven Davis is hoping to be back next week.

Newcastle’s injury list is shrinking, but it’s becoming no less severe. Their first two choices of goalkeeper are out for the rest of the season, with both Tim Krul and Rob Elliott suffering from ACL knee injuries. Paul Dummett and Kevin Mbabu will have to wait a few weeks to return, and Massadio Haidara is also out. On the plus side Fabricio Coloccini could be back to bolster the back line.

Aston Villa vs Bournemouth – Sat 9th April – 15:00

Gabby Agbonlahor is injured, although he’s still serving an in-house club suspension. Ciaran Clark, Libor Kozak, and Adama Traore are all hoping to be fit in time to play on Saturday. Jordan Amavi is still some way off though.

Adam Smith is a doubt for Bournemouth, and Benik Afobe, Tokelo Rantie, Harry Arter, and Callum Wilson will miss the majority of April. Junior Stanislas is hoping to be back next weekend, and Tyrone Mings remains a long way off a return.

Manchester City vs West Brom – Sat 9th April – 17:30

Yaya Toure probably won’t be risked for this game, and David Silva and Vincent Kompany are still fighting for fitness as well for Manchester City. Raheem Sterling won’t be back until May either.

Callum McManaman is a doubt for West Brom, but they are hopeful that he can make the bench. James Morrison is still sidelined, and Chris Brunt won’t be back until October due to his ACL knee injury.

Sunderland vs Leicester – Sun 10th April – 13:30

Duncan Watmore is Sunderland’s only casualty ahead of this clash.

Leicester haven’t got much to worry about in the injury department either, with the sole absence of Jordan Schlupp being the only concern.

Liverpool vs Stoke – Sun 10th April – 16:00

Jordan Henderson suffered a knee ligament injury on Thursday that is likely to keep him out for the rest of the season, with him joining Joe Gomez and Danny Ings as long term casualties. Jordan Rossiter is still out as well, and both Christian Benteke and Lucas Leiva are doubts for Liverpool.

Stoke are hoping that Marko Arnautovic, Geoff Cameron, Glenn Whelan, Xherdan Shaqiri, Ryan Shawcross, and Glen Johnson will all recover in time to play on Sunday, but it’s not looking good for a few of them. Jack Butland, Jon Walters, and Marc Wilson are all confirmed absentees as well.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United – Sun 10th April – 16:00

Erik Lamela, Jan Vertonghen, and Clinton N’Jie could all be available for selection in time for the title run in for Spurs. Nassim Bentaleb remains injured though.

Phil Jones is a doubt for Manchester United, and Wayne Rooney will have to wait another week or so to return to action. Adnan Januzaj, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Luke Shaw, and Will Keane are all confirmed absentees though.
