It’s that time of the FPL calendar again, the ever annoying International Break. This has got to be one of the most frustrating times of the year as the Premier League takes a rest for a week and the international friendlies commence. Today I’ll analyze the recent friendlies and mention any form and injury news for the Premier League players involved. Let’s go!

Sturridge did not feature in this game and has been ruled out for the second clash against Ukraine. He has returned to Liverpool’s training facility to begin rehab. He is a slight chance to miss this weekend’s Premier League clash with Swansea but we will know more later on during the week. Stay tuned for the News Wrap on Saturday morning!

Scotland 0 Belgium 2

Scorers:

  • Mirallas

Injuries:

  • Hazard

Eden Hazard was ruled out of the clash against Scotland after injuring his Achilles Tendon during training on Friday. He is still a chance to face Everton as the Premier League kicks off again but will face a fitness test. Similar to Sturridge, keep an eye out for the News Wrap article on Saturday morning for the latest on the two stars. Mirallas once again teased his owners, hopefully he can finally carry this form into the EPL.

He will face a fitness test before the game against Stoke and we will know more after the press conferences on Friday. Once again stay tuned for the News Wrap to find out the latest developments! Negredo continued his fine early season form and will almost certainly start ahead of Dzeko this weekend at Stoke.

Brazil and Chelsea face a nervous wait as Oscar received a blow to his ankle during training ahead of the friendly against Australia. It is only a slight problem and like Hazard, will face a fitness test to determine whether fit enough to face Everton on the weekend.
