Newcastle faces several injury concerns ahead of FPL Gameweek 33. Jamaal Lascelles and Sven Botman are sidelined for the season due to knee injuries, while doubts linger over the availability of Joelinton and Lewis Miley, both dealing with quad and back issues, respectively. Additionally, Sandro Tonali is banned until August. However, there’s hope for the return of key players like Callum Wilson, Tino Livramento, Miguel Almiron, and Nick Pope by late April or early May, potentially making them available for Double Gameweek 37 if they avoid setbacks.

Kieran Trippier’s calf injury may see him return around Gameweek 34, as suggested by media reports, although no official confirmation has been provided. Matt Targett could be the first to return from his Achilles injury, as indicated by manager Eddie Howe. Joe Willock is the latest concern, having suffered a recurrence of his Achilles injury and requiring assessment.

Meanwhile, Tottenham’s team news is relatively straightforward. Richarlison might return after being given Gameweek 32 off to recover from a knee issue. Manor Solomon, Fraser Forster, and Ryan Sessegnon are unlikely to feature again this season due to respective knee, foot, and hamstring injuries.

Newcastle Predicted XI: M Dubravka (GK), L Hall, D Burn, F Schar, E Krafth, J Willock, B Guimaraes, S Longstaff, A Gordon, J Murphy, and A Isak

Tottenham Predicted XI: G Vicario (GK), P Porro, C Romero, M van de Ven, I Udogie, Y Bissouma, P Sarr, B Johnson, J Maddison, T Werner, and H Son

Brentford vs. Sheffield United

Brentford‘s key striker Ivan Toney is expected to be fit for the game. Toney was benched in Gameweek 32 due to a minor hip muscle injury, with manager Thomas Frank aiming to keep him fresh for the final six games of the season. There’s also potential for Kevin Schade to return to the squad after being sidelined for over six months with an adductor injury. Ethan Pinnock and Christian Nørgaard are next in line to return, according to Frank.

However, Brentford will continue to miss Rico Henry, Josh Dasilva, and Ben Mee for the rest of the season, with Aaron Hickey also facing a long-term absence due to a hamstring injury.

On the Sheffield United side, manager Chris Wilder is optimistic about Jack Robinson’s injury, suggesting it’s just a knock. Meanwhile, George Baldock, Tom Davies, Rhian Brewster, Max Lowe, Rhys Norrington-Davies, Chris Basham, and John Egan remain sidelined with medium-to-long-term injuries.

Brentford Predicted XI: Mark Flekken, Nathan Collins, Kristoffer Ajer, Mathias Jorgensen, Sergio Reguilon, Vitaly Janelt, Mathias Jensen, Mikkel Damsgaard, Mads Roerslev, Ivan Toney, Bryan Mbeumo

Sheffield United Predicted XI: Ivo Grbic, Mason Holgate, Anel Ahmedhodzic, Jack Robinson, Jayden Bogle, Gustavo Hamer, Ollie Arblaster, Ben Osborn, Auston Trusty, Ben Brereton Diaz, Oliver McBurnie
