After a five-match gameweek last weekend, we're back to a normal full-slate of games, which means the injuries matter a little more now.

Every team is dealing with something, although Arsenal may be missing the most talent, with Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil and Jack Wilshere all definitely missing out, while numerous others are facing late fitness tests.

As a reminder, you can find a full list of injured players on our Injury Updates page, or if you're looking for information on a specific player, just search their name and the latest news will be on their player page.

And with that, here are a few of the names we're tracking for gameweek 30:

Saturday, March 15

Hull City vs. Manchester City
Jake Livermore has a thigh injury, although he is expected to be fit come Saturday. Sergio Aguero aggravated a hamstring injury during Wednesday's Champions League match at Barcelona, and while the club has stated they don't think it's serious, it wouldn't be surprising to see him sit out this weekend. On the plus side, Stevan Jovetic is set to return from his hamstring injury, and Matija Nastasic may make his way back from a knee injury.

Everton vs. Cardiff City
Phil Jagielka (hamstring) and Steven Pienaar (knock) both face late fitness tests. Ben Turner and Andrew Taylor have picked up knocks and are unlikely to play.

Fulham vs. Newcastle
Ashkan Dejagah is dealing with a groin injury, and Scott Parker has a knee injury. Both are not expected to play. Loic Remy has been ruled out with an ankle injury, and Mathieu Debuchy is also out due to a groin issue. Hatem Ben Arfa may stay on the sideline due to a knock he picked up recently, while Davide Santon may miss out due to a knee issue. The good news is that Fabricio Coloccini is set to return from his bereavement leave.

Southampton vs. Norwich City
Jack Cork will miss out with an ankle injury. Leroy Fer will miss a few weeks with a hamstring injury, while Alexander Tettey is expected to return from a slight knee issue. Jonas Gutierrez (calf) and Michael Turner (hamstring) could return next week.

Stoke City vs. West Ham
Robert Huth continues to sit out with a knee injury. Ricardo Vaz Te may be able to return from his hamstring injury, while Marco Borriello is out with a calf injury.

Sunderland vs. Crystal Palace
Wes Brown and Craig Gardner both picked up knocks, but are expected to play. Marouane Chamakh suffered a hamstring injury and is out until April.

Swansea City vs. West Brom
Pablo (hamstring) and Nathan Dyer (ankle) are both expected to play, while Michu (hamstring) faces a late fitness test. Jonjo Shelvey is likely another week away before he can return from his hamstring injury. Chris Brunt is out for a few weeks with a knee injury, while Steven Reid is probably a week away from returning from his own knee issue. Claudio Yacob will miss out with a hamstring injury, but is not expected to be out for long.

Tottenham Hotspur vs. Arsenal
Christian Eriksen (back) return to play Thursday against Benfica, as did Danny Rose (knee). Unfortuantely, Sandro and Kyle Walker both picked up knocks in that game. Mousa Dembele is expected to return from his hamstring injury, but Michael Dawson’s will keep him out again. Etienne Capoue (ankle) and Vlad Chiriches (back) are also out. Mesut Ozil will miss six weeks with a hamstring injury, while Aaron Ramsey will miss at least another game before he returns from his thigh injury. Jack Wilshere is out for another few weeks with an ankle injury. Kieran Gibbs (ankle), Tomas Rosicky (groin), Nacho Monreal (ankle), and Kim Kallstrom (back) will all have late fitness tests.
