Luton Town’s struggle against relegation is compounded by an ongoing FPL injury crisis, with manager Edwards facing the prospect of missing seven more players for Friday’s match against Everton. Tom Lockyer, who recently experienced a cardiac arrest, adds to their woes. Additionally, Issa Kabore, Marvelous Nakamba, Jacob Brown, Amari’i Bell, Dan Potts, and Chiedozie Ogbene are sidelined. Edwards must carefully assess Mads Andersen’s calf issue before deciding on his involvement.

However, there’s a glimmer of hope as striker Elijah Adebayo returned from a hamstring injury, featuring for 12 minutes in their last game. He’s likely to be considered for a starting role.

On the Everton side, the medical team is grappling with several new injuries. Vitaliy Mykolenko is ruled out for the rest of the season due to an ankle problem sustained against Liverpool. Nathan Patterson and Dele Alli are also sidelined with thigh and groin issues respectively. Beto is recovering from a head injury but is expected to return soon.

Seamus Coleman, Lewis Dobbin, and Dominic Calvert-Lewin are doubtful for the upcoming match, with Calvert-Lewin having a chance to feature. Everton, having secured survival, will likely be cautious in their approach.

Luton Town possible starting lineup:
Kaminski; Mengi, Burke, Osho; Hashioka, Lokonga, Barkley, Doughty; Chong; Morris, Adebayo

Everton possible starting lineup:
Pickford; Godfrey, Tarkowski, Branthwaite, Young; Harrison, Garner, Gueye, McNeil; Doucoure; Calvert-Lewin.

Arsenal vs Bournemouth

Arsenal doesn’t have any significant FPL injury concerns ahead of their clash with Bournemouth, although defender Jurrien Timber might be sidelined due to injury. The Gunners are likely to field their strongest lineup, possibly mirroring the one used against Tottenham in their previous league match.

On the other hand, Bournemouth faces a few injury issues with defenders Ryan Fredericks and Chris Mepham, along with midfielders Tyler Adams and Marcus Travernier potentially unavailable for the match against Arsenal. Despite these setbacks, Bournemouth has been in a decent run of form lately, making the most of the players at their disposal during this stage of the campaign.

Arsenal possible starting lineup: D Raya (GK), T Tomiyasu, G Magalhaes, W Saliba, B white, D Rice, T Partey, M Odegaard, L Trossard, Bukayo Saka, and K Havertz

Brentford vs Fulham

Brentford will be without defenders Ben Mee and Rico Henry, as well as midfielders Aaron Hickey and Neal Maupay due to ongoing injury recoveries for their match against Fulham. Despite these absences, the team has maintained a decent form in the latter stages of the season, and manager Thomas Frank aims to field the strongest possible lineup against Fulham.

On the other hand, Fulham has no major injury concerns heading into the fixture against Brentford. Manager Marco Silva has a wealth of options available across all areas of the pitch. With players like Raul Jiminez and Adama Traore eager for more playing time, Fulham is aiming for a victory at the Gtech Community Stadium.

Brentford possible starting lineup: M Flekken (GK), S Reguilon, E Pinnock, N Collins, K Ajer, V Janelt, C Norgaard, M Jensen, Y Wissa, B Mbeumo, and I Toney

Burnley are facing a significant injury crisis with Luca Koleosho, Aaron Ramsey, Nathan Redmond, Ameen Al-Dakhil, and Jordan Beyer all sidelined. Fortunately, they didn’t incur any fresh injuries in their last outing against Manchester United. The Clarets are determined to secure three points at home in their upcoming match.

Meanwhile, Newcastle’s injury list is extensive, with players like Sven Botman, Jamaal Lascelles, Joe Willock, Matt Targett, Lewis Miley, Nick Pope, Kieran Trippier, Miguel Almiron, and Joelinton all unavailable due to various injuries. Valentino Livramento’s availability is uncertain as he undergoes assessment before the game. He has been filling in at right-back in the absence of Kieran Trippier.

Sheffield United vs Nottingham Forest

Sheffield United are grappling with both poor form and an extensive injury list as they prepare to face Nottingham Forest. The Blades suffered a humiliating 5-1 defeat to Newcastle United in their last Premier League outing, highlighting their struggles this season. However, their woes are compounded by the absence of several key players due to injury.

Critical players like Chris Basham, George Baldock, James McAtee, and Tom Davies will be sidelined for the Sheffield United vs. Nottingham Forest clash. Basham and Baldock are dealing with long-term injuries, with Basham recovering from a foot fracture and Baldock nursing a thigh injury since March. McAtee will miss out due to a strain, while Oliver McBurnie and Rhian Brewster are also unavailable with serious injuries. Fullback Max Lowe’s return is postponed to next season due to an ankle injury, and Rhys Norrington Davies remains sidelined since February.

On the other hand, Nottingham Forest faces fewer injury concerns. Taiwo Awoniyi is expected to remain sidelined for a few more days as he recuperates from a muscle injury, affecting their attacking options. In defense, Willy Boly is unlikely to recover in time for the match due to ongoing injury setbacks. However, there’s a possibility that Neco Williams, who sustained an injury last week, could feature in the upcoming fixture.

Sheffield United possible starting lineup:
Wesley Foderingham (GK), Mason Holgate, Anel, Auston Trusty, Jayden Bogle, Gustavo Hamer, Oliver Arblaster, Andre Brooks, Ben Archer, Cameron Archer, Ben Brenton Diaz

Nottm Forest possible starting lineup:
Matz Sels (GK), Neco Williams, Moussa Niakhate, Murillo, Ola Aina, Nico Domingez, Danilo, Gio Reyna, Morgan Gibbs-White, Callum Hudson Odoi, Chris Wood

Man City vs Wolves

However, they might face a setback as goalkeeper Ederson picked up an injury in their weekend clash against Nottingham Forest. His availability for the fixture remains uncertain, marking a potential absence for the Cityzens.

On the other side, Wolves grapple with a growing injury list, contributing to their recent struggles. Pedro Neto, a standout performer for Wolves this season, will be sidelined due to a hamstring injury, likely keeping him out until the end of the season. Fullback Rayan Ait Nouri is also unavailable due to a knee injury.

The defensive line suffers further blows with experienced defender Craig Dawson out with a groin injury, along with Noha Lemina and Jean Ricner. Additionally, Santiago Bueno’s return seems unlikely as he deals with a hamstring injury, adding to Wolves’ defensive woes ahead of the clash against Manchester City.

Man City possible starting lineup:
Stefan Ortega (GK), Kyle Walker (C), Ruben Dias, Gvardiol, Bernardo Silva, Rodri, John Stones, Jack Grealish, Phil Foden, Kevin de Bruyne, Erling Haaland

Pascal Gross and Billy Gilmour will anchor the midfield, while Facundo Buonanotte, Joao Pedro, and Simon Adingra operate as attacking midfielders. Mark O’Mahony is set to lead the line for Brighton.

Aston Villa, on the other hand, is likely to line up in a 4-4-1-1 formation. Robin Olsen will replace the injured Emiliano Martinez in goal. Matty Cash, Ezri Konsa, Pau Torres, and Lucas Digne form the defensive quartet. Leon Bailey, Youri Tielemans, David Luiz, and Morgan Rogers will comprise the midfield.

For Manchester United, Marcus Rashford is a doubt for the match after missing the last two games due to injury.
