Niggling strains and even a season-ending injury means there’s a bunch of Premier League stars are set to miss out on the action this week.
Here’s all the latest injury updates and team news as we prepare for a massive weekend of Premier League football!
GUNNERS STAR’S HORROR INJURY
Danny Welbeck has been ruled out for the rest of the season after suffering a horrific ankle injury in Arsenal’s Europa League clash with Sporting Lisbon.
The Englishman was carried off on a stretcher and needed to receive oxygen before he was taken to hospital.
Gruesome images have surfaced of the injury, indicating Welbeck could be sidelined for a lot longer than first anticipated.
WOUNDED REDS DUO LEAVE KLOPP SHORT AT RIGHT-BACK
Jurgen Klopp’s options at right-back are looking very limited for the weekend with the club confirming Joe Gomez is out with an achilles problem.
To add insult to injury, Trent Alexander-Arnold suffered and knock during the midweek Champions League game and is in doubt for this weekend’s clash with Fulham.
The Reds’ third-choice right-back, Nathaniel Clyne is suffering with an illness at the moment and could also miss out on Sunday’s fixture.
FOXES PAIR OUT FOR EMOTIONAL KING POWER STADIUM RETURN
Leicester City are returning to the King Power Stadium for the first time since their owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha tragically lost his life in a helicopter crash outside the ground.
The Foxes host Burnley in what will be an emotional day for everyone involved at the club, although midfield magician James Maddison and star defender Marry Maguire will have to watch on from the sidelines.
The pair are both out with knee injuries and the club are unsure as to when they will both return.
MANCHESTER DERBY MISSING TWO OF THE BEST
There will be two big names missing when the teamsheets come out before kick-off in the Manchester derby — Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku.
Cityzens playmaker De Bruyne missed the start of the season with a serious knee injury and seems to have re-injured the same knee just weeks after making his long-awaited return.
Lukaku is currently being assessed by United staff for a muscular problem which could see him miss out on the weekend too.
CHERRIES’ FORMIDABLE FORWARD SIDELINED
In-form front man Joshua King is the only Bournemouth player set to miss out on this weekend’s trip up to Newcastle.
“Right now it’s 50/50. It’s a little special injury, because there’s no time frame. I just have to know myself when I feel good enough,” said King.
Having the 26-year-old on the sideline won’t please the South Coast side’s supporters — his strike partnership with Callum Wilson has helped steer Eddie Howe’s side to sixth place in the Premier League.
SPURS’ GROWING INJURY LIST
The treatment room at White Hart Lane (or should we say Wembley) is looking very full, despite the return of Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen.
The club confirmed this week that Mousa Dembele will be out until 2019 with an ankle injury.
“Scans have confirmed ligament damage to the right ankle and he’s unlikely to be available until the new year.”
Dembele joins Danny Rose, Eric Dier, Jan Vertonghen and Victor Wanyama on Maurizio Pochettino’s growing injury list.
BRIGHTON DUO SIDELINED
The Seagulls travel to the Welsh capital to take on Cardiff City, although star duo Davy Propper and Pascal Gross will not be involved.
The pair are struggling with ankle injuries and are expected to return by mid-to-late November.
Their absence leaves Chris Hughton rather short in attacking options, with star striker Glenn Murray also in doubt after suffering a concussion a few weeks ago.
