We’ve got a mini double gameweek this week with Burnley, Fulham, Manchester City and Everton each having the chance at double the points before Leeds and Southampton get the chance next week. Without further delay, here’s the injury news for Gameweek 24.

Leicester City v. Liverpool

Leicester City got some bad news on the injury front with James Justin being ruled out for the remainder of the season with an ACL injury. Timothy Castagne seems like the best choice to take up his role at fullback, but the Belgian international is still out with a hamstring injury (as is defender Wesley Fofana). Ayoze Pérez is fit after taking a knock to his shin this week.

Out: Morgan, Praet, Fofana, Castagne, Justin

Doubtful:

Once again, Liverpool will have to do without the presence of Fabinho along their injury-plagued backline. The Brazilian, who has been plagued with injuries himself this season, sustained a muscle injury and will not be available for the weekend; he’s also a doubt for a busy week with Champions League and the Merseyside derby ahead.

Out: van Dijk, Gomez, Jota, Matip, Keita, Fabinho

Doubtful:

Crystal Palace v. Burnley

Crystal Palace won’t have their star in Wilfried Zaha available for the Burnley visit after sustaining a hamstring injury in Gameweek 22 against Newcastle. However, Joel Ward looks to be set for a return after missing the last two weeks.

Out: Ferguson, Hennessey, Wickham, Kelly, Sakho, Tomkins, Schlupp, Zaha, McArthur

Doubtful: Ward

Burnley manager Sean Dyche wasn’t confident in the chances of having forward Chris Wood and Charlie Taylor back for the weekend. However, Josh Brownhill could be back in contention while Nick Pope and Jack Cork have trained and are in contention.

Out:

Doubtful: Cork, Pope, Taylor, Brady, Brownhill, Wood

Man City v. Spurs

It seems likely that Rúben Dias and Rodri will be back for Manchester City as they begin their double gameweek. Dias missed out on the FA Cup win over Swansea City in midweek due to illness but Pep Guardiola said he expects him to be available. Maybe we’ll get an appearance from Sergio Agüero following the end of his quarantine, but he’s still building fitness so it’s a toss-up.

Out: De Bruyne, Ake, Fernandinho

Doubtful: Aguero, Dias

Tottenham pulled the wool over fantasy managers’ once again when Harry Kane returned early from an ankle injury and scored against West Brom last weekend. Gareth Bale is doubtful despite a scan revealing no injuries, while Serge Aurier seems like a go after sustaining a calf injury this week.

Out: Lo Celso, Reguilon,

Doubtful: Aurier, Bale

Brighton v. Aston Villa

Brighton manager Graham Potter will hope to have Davy Propper and Adam Webster available for Saturday, but four players remain out. The good news is Danny Welbeck and Alexis Mac Allister both returned last week for the Seagulls.

Out: Lamptey, Jahanbakhsh, March, Andone

Doubtful: Webster, Propper

There’s no new injury news for Aston Villa with Wesley and Kourtney Hause still out.

Out: Hause, Wesley

Doubtful:

Southampton v. Wolves

There has been no injury update from Southampton due to their FA Cup match on Thursday, but we do know that Alex Jankewitz remains out as he serves the final game in his three-match suspension.

Out: Smallbone, Salisu, Armstrong, Walcott, Diallo, Jankewitz (suspension)

Doubtful:

Nelson Semedo, Rui Patrício and Pedro Neto were rested for the club’s FA Cup match in midweek and look set to reprise their starting roles for Nuno Espirito Santo. Rayan Ait-Nouri and Romain Saiss returned in the FA Cup after missing the last few matches with injury.

Out: Jonny, Jimenez, Marcal, Saiss

Doubtful:

West Brom v. Man Utd

Midfielder Grady Diangana is the only injury doubt for West Brom but the winger did return to training this week.

Out:

Doubtful: Diangana

It remains to be seen whether Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will give Amad Diallo his club debut after he was on the bench in the FA Cup. Eric Bailly looks to be back after missing the last three weeks due to a knock but Paul Pogba won’t be available due to a thigh injury.

Out: Williams, Jones, Pogba

Doubtful: Bailly,

Arsenal v. Leeds

Arsenal will have Bernd Leno and David Luiz back from suspension to face Leeds at the Emirates this weekend. But Thomas Partey won’t be available after sustaining a hamstring injury last weekend. Kieran Tierney remains out with leg injury.

Out: Tierney, Partey

Doubtful:

Leeds will have to continue without Pablo Hernandez and Rodrigo due to a pair of muscle injuries. Kalvin Phillips looks like a major doubt after being subbed off with a calf issue against Crystal Palace on Monday.

Out: Forshaw, Koch, Berardi, Grot, Llorente, Rodrigo, Poveda, Hernandez

Doubtful: Phillips

Everton v. Fulham

Dominic Calvert-Lewin will not be available for the first leg of Everton’s double gameweek but is expected to return in midweek, according to manager Carlo Ancelotti. The forward sustained a hamstring injury in the FA Cup this week but it wasn’t deemed to be too serious. Goalkeeper Jordan Pickford will miss his third game this week due to his rib injury.

Out: Gbamin, Allan, Pickford, Calvert-Lewin

Doubtful: Digne

Scott Parker had no new injury news before the club’s trip to Goodison Park.

Out: Cairney, Kongolo,

Doubtful:

West Ham v. Sheffield United

West Ham defender Fabián Balbuena will need to be assessed after sustaining a calf strain during the warmup ahead of the midweek FA Cup tie while Andriy Yarmolenko looks like a doubt due to a knee problem. Angelo Ogbonna will miss out due to an ankle injury that fortunately won’t need an operation, but backup Issa Diop has been cleared from his concussion and looks set to feature in Ogbonna’s place again. Regarding Michail Antonio, manager David Moyes said, "Michail is doing well, he’s had some time on the grass so hopefully he’ll be close for the weekend."

Out: Masuaku, Ogbonna, Yarmolenko

Doubtful: Antonio

There hasn’t been an injury update from Sheffield United for Monday’s trip to West Ham but we know that Jack O’Connell and Sander Berge will not be available.

Out: O’Connell, Berge

Doubtful: Stevens, Robinson, Baldock

Chelsea v. Newcastle

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel said Thiago Silva won’t be available for the weekend, but is hoping to have the Brazilian back for Gameweek 25. Timo Werner looks more likely to feature than Kai Havertz with the German pair working their way back from injuries.

Out: Thiago Silva

Doubtful: Christensen, Havertz, Werner,

Newcastle were hit with even more bad news on the injury front with Callum Wilson being ruled out for up to two months due to a hamstring injury. Fabian Schär’s knee operation likely means around two months for him while Javier Manquillo could miss six to eight weeks with an ankle problem. However, Ciaran Clark will return while Bruce is hoping that Jamaal Lascelles and Federico Fernandez can join him.

Out: Wilson, Manquillo, Schar

Doubtful: Fernandez, Lascelles
