Mertesacker out for Arsenal
Arsenal have confirmed Per Mertesacker has been ruled out of the trip to the United States with a knee problem. The German managed to play against Lens on Friday but the Gunners have now revealed he is suffering with a knee injury and will stay back at London Colney for treatment. With Laurent Koscielny resting after Euro 2016 and Gabriel suffering from tonsillitis, Calum Chambers is Arsenal's most experienced centre back on tour.
Ivanovic could miss start of season
Branislav Ivanovic could miss the start of Chelsea's season after suffering a dislocated shoulder. The 32-year-old defender flew to Los Angeles with the rest of the Chelsea squad for the second leg of the pre-season tour despite the injury and will have treatment in the USA. But Ivanovic is now expected to be out for three weeks, which would put his pre-season preparations for the new campaign well behind schedule.
West Ham 24.7.16
Cresswell to undergo scan on knee injury
West Ham United defender Aaron Cresswell is to undergo a scan on the knee injury sustained during the Saturday's pre-season meeting with Karlsruher. The 26-year-old has missed just one Premier League game for West Ham since joining from Ipswich Town in 2014, but now faces an anxious wait when undergoing a scan in the coming days.
Sanchez to miss Arsenal tour
Alexis Sanchez will miss Arsenal's tour of the United States due to the ankle injury he suffered in the Copa America final. Sanchez was forced off in extra-time of Chile's penalty shoot-out victory over Argentina following a heavy challenge from River Plate's Gabriel Mercado. Reports earlier this month suggested the former Barcelona forward could miss the start of the season, but Arsene Wenger is confident the 27-year-old will be fit to face Liverpool on August 14.
Burnley strikers in injury scare
Burnley suffered an injury setback in the victory at Bradford, with Ashley Barnes and Lukas Jutkiewicz both suffering hamstring injuries. Barnes walked off three minutes before the break, while his replacement, Jutkiewicz, did not appear for the second half of the 4-1 win at Valley Parade. "Ashley felt his hamstring and that's why he just walked straight off. We hope it's a minor one, but we'll have to wait and see," manager Sean Dyche said. "Lukas was going to come out for the second half, but his hamstring was tight when he was warming up, so I said not to push it. We want people fit."
Jagielka suffers recurrence of his hamstring injury
Ronald Koeman's preparations for the new season have been severely disrupted after Phil Jagielka's hamstring problems resurfaced. Everton's captain missed much of the end of last season with a tear in his hamstring. Jagielka had been looking to start the campaign afresh under new manager Koeman but he has been forced on to the sidelines after he was injured in training at Finch Farm. He will miss Saturday's friendly at Barnsley, as will John Stones who has a minor fitness problem that will prevent him lining up against his former club.
Ankle injury sidelines Hyndman
Emerson Hyndman, who joined Bournemouth in the offseason, is out with an ankle injury that might sideline him the rest of the Cherries' preseason. The 20-year-old will have his injury examined when he returns to England following Bournemouth's trip to Minnesota, where it beat the Minnesota United, 4-0, in its first preseason friendly on Wednesday.
Ivanovic leaves training camp to have injury assessed
Branislav Ivanovic has left Chelsea's training camp in Austria to get an injury checked out. The veteran right back aggravated a shoulder injury against Wolfsberger on Wednesday night, and while the squad trained twice on Thursday and will have one more session on Friday, Ivanovic was already on a plane heading back to Cobham.
Lucas injured in Liverpool friendly
Liverpool are sweating over midfielder Lucas Leiva's hamstring injury that he sustained during Wednesday's 2-0 friendly win at Huddersfield Town. Jurgen Klopp had to replace the Brazilian with young goalkeeper Shamal George as he had used all his outfield substitutes. Liverpool boss does not yet know the full extent of the issue. "We have to wait for the exact assessment," he told the media.
Hull City 20.7.16
Dawson ruled out for three months
Hull City have suffered another injury blow, with captain Michael Dawson ruled out for three months. The defender sustained a knee ligament injury in the pre-season win at Mansfield Town on Tuesday night and will wear a leg brace for the next six weeks. Tigers boss Steve Bruce is already without Moses Odubajo and Alex Bruce for the start of the Premier League campaign.
West Ham 19.7.16
Carroll sidelined with groin injury
West Ham have suffered another setback with Andy Carroll set for a short spell on the sidelines. The Hammers hitman is claimed to be having issues with his groin, adding to Slaven Bilic's problems in attack. Diafra Sakho has refused to travel with the team on their current pre-season tour to Austria as he seeks a move away from the club this summer. And while Enner Valencia is also edging towards an exit, Carlos Bacca is no closer to joining as he stalls on a €31m switch to east London from AC Milan.
Hull City 18.7.16
Odubajo out for up to six months
Newly-promoted Hull City have been dealt a major blow with the news full-back Moses Odubajo has been ruled out for up to six months with a knee injury. The 22-year-old suffered the ruptured ligament in a friendly against Grimsby on Friday and isn't expected back until early in 2017. Odubajo had played a significant role in Hull's promotion back to the EPL via the Championship play-offs last season, making 53 appearances in his first season with the club following his move from Brentford.
