Soldado has suffered a tear in his anterior cruciate ligament which will sideline him for at least about six months, ESPN FC reports.

This is a major blow both for Villarreal and Soldado. The 31-year-old striker just started to regain his form last season and now he may miss the better part of this year's campaign. The injury-dreaded Villarreal are now left with only one healthy striker. The new signing - Alexandre Pato will be the biggest beneficiary, at least for the first few weeks, of Soldado's blow.

Fantasy La Liga: Sunday Cheat Sheet

DFS players always have to worry about squad rotation along Real Madrid's back line, but if Dani Carvajal gets the call Sunday against Espanyol, he's worthy of serious fantasy consideration.

May 19, 2016

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

After a rough time at Tottenham, Soldado went back to La Liga to play for Villarreal this past season. He made 28 appearances, scored five goals and recorded 10 assists in league play.

After scoring just seven goals for Spurs in the Premier League, Soldado was hoping he'd return to the form he had at Valencia, but still struggled to find the back of the net with Villarreal. At 31 years old for the start of next season, Soldado's best days are behind him, but surpassing his five goals should be attainable, given that he's had time to acquaint himself with Spanish football again.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Soldado (back) is not in the 18-man squad to face Manchester United on Saturday.

Soldado wasn't likely to feature anyway because Harry Kane is fully fit, and it's unclear if Spurs will try to move Soldado during this transfer window. Either way, he makes for a very weak fantasy option.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Soldado is questionable for Saturday's game against Manchester United because of a lower-back injury, manager Mauricio Pochettino said Friday.

Even when he's fully fit, Soldado is far from getting a start up front in place of, or even next to, Harry Kane, so his absence isn't likely to affect many fantasy leagues.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Soldado (knee) is available off the bench for Sunday's match against Burnley.

Soldado was an injury doubt coming into the match because of the issue, but he'll take his regular spot on the bench waiting for Harry Kane to score enough so he can get some playing time.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Soldado is an injury doubt for Sunday's match against Burnley because of the knee injury that has kept him out of the last two matches, manager Mauricio Pochettino said Thursday.

Pochettino made a point to say that Soldado still has two days to return to fitness, though even when he's fully healthy, he is a bench player behind Harry Kane.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Soldado will have a late fitness test to determine his availability for Saturday's match against Leicester City after missing last weekend's match against Manchester United with a knee injury.

With Harry Kane in firm control of the starting striker position, Soldado's fantasy value is very limited even when he's fully fit.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Soldado led Tottenham with five shots in the 0-0 draw to Crystal Palace Saturday.

Soldado has now gotten four consecutive starts and has looked good in his appearances. He was clearly the main offensive weapon today and has seemingly captures the starting striker role for the time being. Look for him to start next weekend against Swansea City.
