No massive concerns for FPL bosses with the injuries at Brighton right now, other than budget enabler, Dale Stephens, who could be fit this weekend following a hip injury.
Dale Stephens – hip injury – could return GW26
José Izquierdo – knee injury – expected return GW27
Similarly, at Burnley, there are no massive concerns for FPL managers right now. Lowton could be a decent pick when back if he can wrestle his way into the side.
Matthew Lowton – foot injury – could return GW27
Steve Defour – calf injury – expected return unknown
Aaron Lennon – knee injury – expected return unknown
Jonathan Walters – heel injury - expected return unknown
Camarasa is a great budget option at Cardiff and has been performing well this year. Hopefully, he’ll be back this week, but there’s some talk about him competing with Harry Arter for the spot in midfield. Enforcer Morrison will be a big miss at the heart of the Cardiff defence.
Victor Camarasa – unknown injury – could return GW26
Sean Morrison – abdominal injury – could return GW27
Nothing to report from Chelsea right now as Van Ginkel hasn’t been considered at all this season.

Phil Jagielka – unknown injury – expected return unknown
Leighton Baines – rib injury – expected return unknown
