Linagrd, Firmino, Fernandinho & other key players set to miss today’s Premier League mid-week action.


The Premier League continues today with mouthwatering fixtures as Chelsea face North London rivals Tottenham Hotspurs and league leaders Liverpool host Watford at Anfield.

However, there are injury concerns for some big clubs heading into today’s fixtures. We take a look the injury list for the top 6 clubs.

1 – Manchester City: Manager Pep Guardiola confirms Fernandinho and Aymeric Laporte have joined the club’s injury list after they were forced off in the cup final win over Chelsea.

Other injured players include; Benjamin Mendy, John Stones & Gabriel Jesus.

2 – Liverpool: Jurgen Klopp has some good news for the Liverpool faithful over the return to fitness of Roberto Firmino.

The Brazil international suffered an ankle injury against Manchester United but he might even face Watford on Wednesday.

Other injured players include; Oxlade Chamberlain, Naby Keita, Dejan Lovren & Joe Gomez.

3 – Tottenham Hotspurs: Spurs will once again be without Dele Alli and Eric Dier.

Dele is continuing his rehabilitation from a hamstring injury, while fellow England international Dier has tonsilitis.

4 – Arsenal: Ainsley Maitland-Niles (below) is back in full training, while Alex Iwobi (ankle) and Stephan Lichtsteiner (back) face late fitness tests.
5 – Chelsea: Chelsea are in good shape ahead of their match at Stamford Bridge, with all their players having trained ahead of the game, having recently welcomed back the likes of Kepa Arrizabalaga, Pedro and Davide Zappacosta from brief spells out.

However, Maurizio Sarri says Kepa Arrizabalaga may not start their match with Tottenham on Wednesday.

6: Manchester United: Manchester United could be without as many as 10 first team squad players for Wednesday’s game with Crystal Palace.
