FPL 2023-24 – Gameweek 3 Injury Update

-

With another gameweek in the books, we assess the condition of some FPL assets who are currently carrying injuries.

George Baldock (£4.0m) – Sheffield Utd
FPL managers – especially at the start of the season – are always on the lookout for a £4.0m starter at the back, and Baldock certainly fits that category. However, a knock sustained by the Sheffield Utd full-back during the opening weekend of Premier League action prevented his participation in the Blades’ 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest in Gameweek 2. While not thought to be serious, it is worth following Paul Heckingbottom’s press conference later in the week for an update on Baldock’s condition.

Status: 50/50

Trent Alexander-Arnold (£8.0m) – Liverpool
The premium defender was substituted in the 76th minute during Liverpool’s 3-1 victory over Bournemouth on Saturday with a minor knock. The current prognosis it that the bruise should heal by the time Jurgen Klopp’s men take on Newcastle in Gameweek 3, so it would be a surprise if the England international didn’t make the starting line-up.

Status: LIKELY TO BE AVAILABLE

Carney Chukwuemeka (£4.5m) – Chelsea
The budget midfielder has impressed so far and was on the scoresheet in Gameweek 2 when he struck Chelsea’s first-half equaliser against West Ham. However, his participation was short-lived as was brought off at half-time with a knee injury. It has since been revealed that the 19-year-old has undergone surgery and will miss up to six weeks of action – a significant blow to the youngster, who had made a promising start to his Blues career.

Status: OUT

James Maddison (£7.6m) – Tottenham
Although Spurs’ new number ten played every minute of his side’s 2-0 victory over Man Utd in Gameweek 2, alarm bells were sent ringing in the FPL world when he was pictured leaving the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on crutches and in a protective boot. However, Maddison played down reports of a serious injury, stating that the boot was merely a precaution after receiving a kick to the ankle. It remains to be seen whether the 26-year-old will feature in Gameweek 3.

Status: 50/50
