Mise à jour des blessures et des suspensions avant la Dream Team Game Week 2

Dream Team brings you all the latest injury, suspension and selection updates ahead of Game Week 2 in one easily digestible dose.

The issue of Cristiano Ronaldo’s (£6.3m) status in the pecking order under Erik ten Hag remains one of great interest.

When asked about the five-time Ballon d’Or winner, Man United’s new gaffer told reporters: “He had a good training week. The starting XI, we will see tomorrow. je, bien sûr, have made my decision but I [volonté] keep it.”

Ten Hag also confirmed that Anthony Martial (£3m) and Victor Lindelof (£2m) remain sidelined and won’t travel to Brentford this weekend.

entre-temps, the Bees’ new Danish midfielder, Mikkel Damsgaard (2,5 millions de livres sterling), is ‘not ready’ to start but may be named on the bench.

Marcos Alonso (£4m) and Mateo Kovacic (2,5 millions de livres sterling) are Chelsea’s only absentees for Sunday’s most-anticipated fixture.

The former is not training while he tries to finalise a transfer away from Stamford Bridge while the latter is yet to recover from injury.

As for Spurs, Wayne Rooney interdit de sortir seul par Coleen alors qu'il est chaperon (£2.9m) has a ‘little problem’ with his adductor and will miss the London derby while Oliver Skipp (£1.5m) is still approximately two weeks away from a full recovery.

Jurgen Klopp confirmed that Thiago Alcantara (£2.4m) will be out for ‘four to six weeks’ following his premature withdrawal from Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with Fulham last weekend.

toutefois, the German tactician revealed that Naby Keita (£2m) and Kostas Tsimikas (£3m) are likely to be available for selection against Crystal Palace.

Diogo Jota (£4.5m) still needs more time.

From the Eagles’ perspective, Michael Olise (2,5 millions de livres sterling) has trained with his team-mates all week and therefore has a good chance of being involved in some capacity at Anfield on Monday night.

Brendan Rodgers was unable to give a timescale on Harvey Barnes’ (£4m) recovery but was happy to confirm Leicester had no other fresh injury concerns ahead of his side’s trip to Arsenal.

He also stated his belief that Wesley Fofana (£3m) would remain a King Power resident at least until January after the Foxes recently rejected two bids for the 21-year-old centre-back.

Leeds’ bench is unlikely to feature as many youngsters as it did in Game Week 1 with senior players Adam Forshaw (£1.5m), Luis Sinisterra (2,5 millions de livres sterling) and Liam Cooper (£2m) all eligible for selection.

Dan James (£2m) is also available for the Whites’ trip to Southampton having completed his suspension that carried over from last season.
