Game week 5 injury checklist

A quick at-a-glance guide to the injures and suspensions for this game week.


Walcott (knee), Ramsey (Hamstring), Mertesacker (knee), Jenkinson (ACL) and Welbeck (knee) are all out, with Walcott being latest addition to Arsenal’s injury list. We don’t expect him to be fit, meaning Sanchez and Oxlade are likely to continue on wings with Lucas or Giroud playing as forward.

Gabriel was back in training and could make the bench but he is unlikely to get a start considering Koscielny and Mustafi looks like preferred pair.


Zouma (ACL) and Terry (foot). With Terry, he looks to be out until game week 7. David Luiz is the most likely candidate to replace.

Crystal Palace

Souare is latest addition to injury list after he weas injured in a car accident and has to undergo an operation. Wickham and Cabaye will be assessed before game: Wickham has trained and is more likely to be available whereas Cabaye looks uncertain

Leicester City

Simpson has recovered and is OK for the game. Schlupp and Mendy will be assessed before game.


Coutinho reported as fit, so can return to starting XI, but who goes out remains to be seen. In order to keep Firmino, Mane and Sturridge in starting lineup along with Coutinho, Klopp will have to switch to 4-2-3-1 or his preferred attacking 4-6-0 formation.

Manchester United

Mkhiaryan has aggravated his injury and is likely to miss couple of weeks.


Diouf (Hamstring), Shaqiri (calf), Butland (ankle), Johnson (thigh), Affelay (ACL) and Ireland (broken leg). Diouf and Shaqiri will be assessed before game. Butland is expected to return in first week of November.

Tottenham Hotspur

Rose will be checked before game, if not fit, Davies will continue.

West Ham

Carroll will be checked before game. No fresh injury, team likely to remain same. Ogbonna can get a start over Collins.

  1. RMT Algorithm is recommending Terry >> Rose but hes an injury doubt.

    Do i go safe with another Spurs defender (maybe Walker) or a one week punt on Iheanacho in for Gray with WC next week and just bench Terry.

    Terry is on a low -34.4% on Price Change Predictions.

  2. Is it crazy to consider a straight swap for Sanchez to KDB? RMT really favours KDB this Gw and I feel Bouremouth are much worst then Hull at the back. Still have my free FT so wouldn’t cost a hit, good idea or just roll the transfer?
