Injuries and suspensions ahead of Dream Team Game Week 20 — Zaha could be out for ‘a long time’

Dream Team brings you all the latest injury news and suspension updates from the Premier League to help managers navigate their way through Game Week 20.

Thiago Silva is unlikely to feature against Sheffield United after limping off in the first half during Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Spurs on Thursday night.

The Brazilian may face a longer lay-off but the full extent of his thigh problem won’t be known until after a full assessment.

Jan Bednarek’s red card was rescinded upon appeal but David Luiz’s was upheld, meaning the experienced defender won’t be available for the Gunners this weekend — Bernd Leno is also set to serve a one-match suspension.

Jannick Vestergaard is close to returning but a lack of match fitness may mean this Game Week comes too soon for him.

Roy Hodgson confirmed that Wilfried Zaha will join his team-mates at Elland Road on Monday night.

Worryingly, the Crystal Palace gaffer said his star player may be out for ‘much longer’ with a hamstring injury.

In better news, Jamie Vardy is available for Leicester’s trip to Wolves.

Kai Havertz is recovering from a knock but is expected to be make Chelsea’s matchday squad.

Edinson Cavani is not 100% fit but may be able to play some part in Man United’s home clash with Everton on Saturday.

Jordan Pickford’s rib injury means he’s likely to sit out another week, especially after Robin Olsen’s heroics against Leeds in midweek.

Leciester’s Wesley Fofana isn’t expected back until March while Timothy Castagne is a major doubt with a hamstring issue.

Liverpool will probably be without Sadio Mane again but there is hope Alisson will be passed fit for the crunch clash against Man City at Anfield in Sunday.
