As always, Ben Dinnery brings us the all-important injury news ahead of the deadline and some of the biggest news comes from Chelsea. Christian Pulisic will be available, but on the other hand, new signings Hakim Ziyech and Ben Chilwell won’t make it.
Lampard confirms Ziyech (knee) will not be ready for the trip to the Amex. "We hope it will only be a couple of weeks." Chilwell (heel) is training but Monday comes too soon. Silva will not start training until the weekend, and therefore, he's unlikely to be considered. #CFC

One thing is for sure, we will be chopping and changing our premium players in the opening weeks of the season. While many have forecasted Gameweek 3 as the time to bring in a Manchester City player, a move for a Manchester United player is tricky. Bakar shares his thoughts.
Salah to Bruno in GW2 might be the play to make. Can't see myself captaining Salah in any of the next 4 fixtures (che ARS avl shu). 3/4 games are away and history suggests that Salah isn't as prolific away from home when playing with Mane. Could allow for better use of funds #FPL

Finally, Will Thomas has one of the best records in the game and he’s shared his Gameweek 1 team reveal over on the Fantasy Football Hub YouTube channel. It’s a 4-4-2 formation, with one of Chelsea’s new signings at the heart of things.
