A FEW COMMENTS
Bournemouth’s Chelsea loanee Nathan Ake has returned to Chelsea it seems as cover for LWB Alonso who has a minor but deteriorating injury which is concerning Conte. Conte has also talked about Ake’s versatility which would suggest that left sided back 3 CB Gary Cahill is probably the most vulnerable.
Stones continues to be rotated. He is fantastic value at £4.7m but he is a rotation risk
Bellerin is a doubt for Arsenal with an ankle injury
The Southampton defensive situation is interesting. It has suffered in the last couple of weeks but still is a good mid range prospect. In addition to that CB Fonte has said he wants to leave and has been left out of the squad for the EFL cup semi final against Liverpool. However Puel has refused to rule out selecting him in the future. Fonte does bring into scope the possibility of £4.2m cheapie Yoshida coming into the team at CB in place of Fonte which would be a great result. Otherwise the cheapest player is Cedric at £4.9m who currently has a head injury and is a doubt for GW21
WBA left back Nyom is still look to get out of AFCON and manager Pulis seems quite confident of it happening prior to GW21. Also, WBA defender playing as a LAM Brunt has a knock and is a doubt for GW21.
For Watford Holebas has an illness but is expected to be fit for GW21.
Hull CB Dawson is a doubt for GW21 with a shoulder injury
