The final week of the Premier League season is here and with few teams having something to play for, we could see plenty of regular players rested to avoid any kind of injury risk ahead of this summer's World Cup.

As a reminder, the players mentioned below are only a few of those that are battling injuries, or getting ready to return. If you're looking for a full list, you can find that here. And if it's a specific player you're looking for, just search for them above and all of their injury information will be listed on their player page.
