If a Premier League team wants to find an internal path to an opponent’s injury status ahead of the game, there is an online resource through which they can rely more to get crucial information.
Fantasy Premier League football match.
Leicester 2 on Sunday. The absence of Jack E. Grealish was a major blow for Aston Villa, who suffered a 1-1 draw, although the England midfielder’s injury was significantly reversed before the game through a conversation on social media, particularly by the participants. The fantasy game has been played by more than 8 million people worldwide.
That’s because it was reported on Twitter on Friday in the so-called “FPL community” that three Villa players, Matt Target, Conor Hurricane և Neil Taylor, had been sacked by Grealish ahead of the last round of the Premier League. Because he really had one of Villa’s spies, the analyst of his first team.
Maybe it was just a coincidence, but surely, when the lineups for the Villa-Leicester game were announced an hour before the start, Grealish’s name stood out in its absence.
Villa manager Dean Smith spoke after the game about his unhappiness that pre-game speculation had spread about Grailish, the team’s senior star player.
“I was informed on social media that he was not going to play,” said Smith. “If it comes out of our stadium, I’ll know where it’s coming from. ‘
Smith said he was convinced Leicester had been “lifted to their feet” after learning of Grealish’s possible injury.
“We will certainly get to the heart of the matter,” he said.
This is not the first time this season that Premier League players have been prompting teammates about injuries through fantastic Premier League media.
Liverpool left-back Andrew Robertson ousted his team-mate Sadio Mane ahead of his side’s Champions League clash with West Ham on 31 January. Mane did not play in that game due to a minor injury.
Last week, Leeds defender Liam Cooper was sacked by his FPL teammate, left-back John Ann Alioski. So it was no surprise that Alioski was at Wolverhampton on Friday. He lost his place in the starting lineup of “Leeds” for the defeat with a score of 0.

In any case, in recent years, the fantastic game has entered the mainstream. Premier League clubs advertise prices for FPL players և and even provide player interviews to suggest who may be the best on their team.
Leeds striker Patrick Bamford, after scoring against Leicester and Crystal Palace in the last game, even questioned his fantasy choice in post-match interviews.
Bamford told the BBC after his goal and two assists in the 3-1 victory over Leeds in Leicester on January 31. So I’m falsifying. “
He meant FPL players earning double points if they were senior.
Then, on February 8, towards the Palace 2. Winning the 100th goal of his career with a score of 0, Bamford said: “I was led by myself. “Let me tell you – after I missed that one in the first half, I hit myself, so I’m glad I scored.”
