GW25 FPL Team News: Gray, Calvert-Lewin, Toney and more

A round-up of FPL team news for the upcoming Gameweek, with press conference coverage provided by Fantasy Football Scout.


Here is the Fantasy Football Scout summary of the Gameweek 25 pre-match press conferences. Neither Chelsea nor Arsenal play in this round, as the Blues are participating in the Club World Cup.

MAIN FPL TEAM NEWS

  • Dominic Calvert-Lewin (knee) was an unused substitute against Newcastle, due to early injuries suffered by Demarai Gray (hip) and Yerry Mina (thigh). Whilst Gray sits out this weekend, Mina will miss around two months. 

“Yerry’s is an unfortunate injury which will be between 8-10 weeks. It’s a strong injury around his quad. Demarai Gray won’t be fit for Leeds but hopefully a minor knock around his hip” – Frank Lampard

  • Brentford striker Ivan Toney (calf) was a surprise absentee from their 2-0 defeat at Man City and will be assessed ahead of facing Crystal Palace.
  • Ahead of their Double Gameweek 25, Brighton head coach Graham Potter confirmed that Leandro Trossard and Alexis Mac Allister are available for selection again, having missed their FA Cup defeat at Tottenham Hotspur because of Covid.
  • For Spurs, Eric Dier misses out again with his thigh problem.

“Unfortunately, he’s not fit. For sure he’s a big loss for us. He needs more time to recover. I don’t know, I hope he will be available for the next game vs Man City.” – Antonio Conte
