Three Things We Learned In Gameweek 17

Robert Sanchez (£4.7m) – Chelsea
Maurizio Pochettino has ruled Sanchez out for at least two weeks, if not longer, so his number one goalkeeper will definitely miss out in Blank Gameweek 18.

Status: OUT

Vitalii Mykolenko (£4.6m) – Everton
The Everton left-back missed the weekend win over Burnley with Sean Dyche stating that they are waiting to learn the extent of the injury. The Ukrainian’s Blank Gameweek 18 participation does seem unlikely at this stage.


Pau Torres (£4.7m) – Aston Villa
Torres suffered a knock in the victory over Brentford on Sunday but Unai Emery stated it wasn’t a significant injury, so the Spaniard could feature in Aston Villa’s Blank Gameweek 18 fixture.


Fabian Schar (£5.3m) – Newcastle
Newcastle’s injury situation continues shows no signs of slowing down, particularly in defence, where Schar suffered a problem over the weekend. He is currently rated as 50/50 for the weekend.

Status: 50/50

Abdoulaye Doucoure (£5.6m) – Everton
The Everton midfielder has been quietly racking up the FPL points, but a tight hamstring cut short his participation in the win over Burnley on Saturday. It remains to be seen whether he recovers in time for the clash with Spurs on Saturday.

Status: 50/50

Anthony Gordon (£6.2m) – Newcastle
The midweek Carabao Cup tie saw Gordon withdrawn with what Eddie Howe described as a “nasty-looking knock”. Providing it is only a surface-level injury though, we should expect to see him feature on Saturday.


Alexander Isak (£7.6m) – Newcastle
Yet another Magpies asset is currently flagged, with forward Isak missing out against Chelsea in the cup on Tuesday. However, Howe stated that his absence is not due to a serious injury, and was more precautionary than anything else.
