FPL 2023-24 – Gameweek 4 Injury Update

-

With Gameweek 4 looming closer, we take a look at the injury situation surrounding some key FPL assets.

Emiliano Martinez (£5.0m) – Aston Villa
The Aston Villa number one was substituted at half-time with a calf injury in last week’s win over Hibernian in the Europa Conference League and was not involved in the Gameweek 3 clash with Burnley. While it isn’t thought to be serious, all eyes will be on whether Martinez features in Thursday’s return leg with Hibernian, as that may give a clue about his Gameweek 4 availability.

Status: 50/50

Sven Botman (£4.5m) – Newcastle
Botman sustained an ankle knock late on in the defeat to Liverpool on Sunday and the early prognosis is that it isn’t as bad as first feared. Recovering in time for Gameweek 4 would be a surprise, but it can’t be completely ruled out at this stage.

Status: 50/50

Raphael Varane (£5.1m) – Man Utd
The injury-prone centre-back was withdrawn at half-time against Nottingham Forest to spark concerns of an injury, but Man Utd boss Erik ten Hag has been quick to allay such fears, indicating that it was only a precaution. However, given his history with injuries, Varane may well sit out Gameweek 4.

Status: 50/50

Andreas Pereira (£5.5m) – Fulham
A key creator in the Fulham ranks, Pereira has started the season well with two attacking returns in his three Premier League appearances to date, but was forced off just after the hour mark against Arsenal last weekend. Despite what seemed like a knock, Pereira took to the pitch in the midweek League Cup clash with Tottenham, so his Gameweek 4 availability is not currently in question.

Status: AVAILABLE

Rasmus Hojlund (£7.0m) – Tottenham
Man Utd’s summer signing has yet to feature for his new club as he arrived from Atalanta with an injury, but the Dane was close to making the squad for the Nottingham Forest clash over the weekend, raising hopes that he could be available to face Arsenal in Gameweek 4. With a full week of training likely to be under his belt, a debut beckons for Hojlund.

Status: LIKELY TO BE AVAILABLE
