Suspensions, late injury updates and players who can’t face their parent club. Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho seems to have the happiest festive season as he has a full squad with no negativity.
Hugo Lloris – Plenty of Spurs fans were concerned looking at the Frenchman left bloodied when he collided in the face with Jamie Vardy at The King Stadium. However, the former Lyon man is confirmed fit to start against Manchester United.
Tim Howard – The big American to miss the trip to St James Park after picking up a calf injury against The Potters. With a porous defense, missing Howard will be a challenging quest for Roberto Martinez’s side.
Simon Mignolet – The nervy Belgian should be starting for The Reds when they welcome Swansea City as Brad Jones is certainly out with a muscle injury.
Luke Shaw – The former Southampton man should return after recovering from an ankle injury.
Ryan Bertrand – One of the favourite full-back in the dream team who scored a thunderous goal against Crystal Palace is ineligible to face parent club Chelsea.
Vincent Kompany – The influential leader of Manchester City could be available after missing out the last two games due to calf and hamstring problems.
Carl Jenkinson – Another decent right back who can’t feature against his parent club Arsenal. Huge miss for The Hammers!
Angel Di Maria – A big blow for The Red Devils are their mercurial winger picked up a pelvis injury during training of Christmas Eve that makes him a huge doubt to feature at White Hart Lane.
Dusan Tadic – The Serbian should return to the starting lineup against Chelsea!
Marouane Fellaini – The robust midfielder is out through illness!
Joey Barton – The maverick midfielder has recovered from a hamstring injury and will face Crystal Palace who do not have a manager at the moment.
Yannick Bolasie – The speedy Crystal Palace winger is out with a delightful news of his wife is about to give birth.
Jefferson Montero – The key and electrifying midfielder will be a huge miss for Swansea City after picking up a damaged hamstring.
Gabriel Agbonlahor – The winger is suspended a match after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season at the Liberty Stadium.
Stevan Jovetic – Finally a striker to return for The Citizens, likely to get a place on the bench.
Sam Vokes – Last season only Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge got more goals than Vokes and Ings. The highly rated finisher made his long-awaited return against Liverpool in the final 10 minutes of the match. He has fully recovered from the ligament injury that kept him out for nine months, will be in the squad against Manchester City.
Diafra Sakho – The Senegalese forward will definitely face Arsenal as he was rested against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Olivier Giroud – The ill-mannered head-butt against QPR has earned him a deserving three match bans. Clearly not doing any favour for his team and fantasy premier league managers as he returned with impressive form.
