The most recent Premier League fantasy news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisSenderos has been sidelined since Oct. 9 with a lingering thigh muscle strain that he can't seem to get rid of. If he's ultimately not able to play Monday, his next opportunity to get back on the pitch will be against Tottenham on Nov. 2.
Fantasy AnalysisCarroll tore ankle ligaments in July, and will spend the next two weeks playing with the U-18 and U-21 sides to regain match fitness.
Fantasy AnalysisMoses was able to play 73 minutes during Sunday's match against Swansea City, although his recurring issues with his hip have flared up during the practice week and are currently posing problems for his availability Saturday.
Fantasy AnalysisDummett initially suffered a hamstring injury over the most recent international break but made a return against Leicester City that seemed to suggest he had gotten over the injury bug. Despite the return against Leicester, Dummett is still dealing with the lingering hamstring issue that now threatens to sideline him from Sunday's match.
Fantasy AnalysisYacob returned home prior to Monday's game against Manchester United and won't be back for Saturday's fixture with Crystal Palace. “He's not going to be back before this game. We are in contact with him – as much as we can whilst being compassionate as well,” manager Alan Irvine said. Yacob has yet to start a game so far this campaign therefore the news won't have much impact for fantasy managers.
Fantasy AnalysisOlsson (achilles) has been troubled by the problem for a number of years and the latest flare up could mean time for surgery. “It's been something that has been bothering him for some considerable time," manager Alan Irvine said. “He has had an injection, and if you can imagine getting an injection in your Achilles, it's not nice. He's in a bit of discomfort still." Olsson has been displaced from the side by the central defensive duo of Joleon Lescott and Craig Dawson and would only make the bench if he was fit.
Fantasy AnalysisFoster missed Monday's draw against Manchester United due to a calf problem but is now ready to take his place between the sticks. “Ben trained today and he's fine," manager Alan Irvine said. A game against Crystal Palace represents a good chance for him to pick up a fourth clean sheet of the season.
Fantasy AnalysisMariappa will deputise for Damien Delaney (suspension) who misses one game after a red card last time out. The defender plays alongside Brede Hangeland for the first time ever due to the fact Scott Dann (knee) is still out of action. Mariappa has one clean sheet so far this season though fantasy managers shouldn't expect a second one this weekend.
Fantasy AnalysisHangeland replaced injured Scott Dann (knee) in last week's 2-1 loss to Chelsea and will continue to deputise this time out. With Damien Delaney (suspension) also out, Hangeland is expected to lineup alongside Adrian Mariappa at the heart of the Palace defence. It's worth noting Hangeland hasn't kept a Premier League clean sheet in eight games.
Fantasy AnalysisDelaney (suspension) was given his marching orders in the first half of last week's 2-1 defeat against Chelsea after picking up two yellow cards. Delaney and central defensive partner Scott Dann (knee) are both out and it will be down to Brede Hangeland and Adrian Mariappa to fill the void.
