Fantasy Football Tips: Major Premier League injuries – Game Week 26
Well well well, look who’s (likely to be) back.
Kane proved he’s a freak of nature again by recovering from ankle ligament damage two weeks ahead of schedule.
Spurs have hinted he will be fit to play against Burnley on Saturday, but it remains to be seen whether he starts.
Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard
Manchester United were handed a double boost on Friday when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer suggested the duo could make Sunday’s showdown with Liverpool.
Both picked up knocks in the defeat to PSG but are developing well, so could play at Old Trafford.
John Stones and Gabriel Jesus
Guardiola wasn’t happy after the FA Cup victory at Newport last weekend which kept the duo out of the Champions League clash at Schalke.
Stones (groin) and Jesus (hamstring) are both doubts for the Carabao Cup final against Chelsea on Sunday. Not that they’ll need them.
This will be a sight for sore eyes.
West Ham have been denied arguably their best player all season after Lanzini damaged his knee ligaments at the back end of last term.
He’s back in full training now though and could make a Dream Team splash straight away against Fulham on Friday night.
The bargain of the season has been a revelation for Wolves after coming up the leagues with them.
But Doherty picked up a knock in the FA Cup last weekend and is rated as a doubt for their visit to Bournemouth.

James Maddison and Ben Chilwell
Leicester have got some favourable fixtures approaching so this is bad timing.
Maddison and Chilwell – two regulars this season – both face late fitness tests ahead of the home clash with Crystal Palace.
The Spaniard has played 33 times in all competitions this season but he could miss the Carabao Cup final.
Pedro missed the Europa League win over Malmo with a stomach bug and there is no indication yet whether he has recovered.
Mr Injury Prone suffered another setback against BATE on Thursday night after being replaced before the hour mark by Sokratis Papastathopoulos.
Unai Emery said it was just a precaution and hopes his captain will be available to play Southampton on Sunday.
