Football fans across the World continue to test their managerial skills on SokkaaStars Fantasy Football game. Today, we want to take a look at Injuries and Suspensions. It is important as a manager to be fully aware of available players and their chances of playing this coming weekend. It might just give you ideas on how to select your next team.
4. Joel Matip- Thigh injury
SokkaaStars managers will not be able to select Joel Matip in defender 2 category. The Liverpool defender is still nursing a thigh injury. In fact, his boss Juren Klopp confirmed the Cameroonian will undergo surgery. This means he might not be able to play again this season.
3. Marcos Alonso- Suspended
Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso has been suspended for three matches following a violent incident last weekend in the 3-2 win against Southampton. The Spaniard was seen stamping on Shane Long calf on television but the referee said he did not see it. As a result, it was reviewed by the disciplinary board and he will now serve a 3-match ban. He missed the first match against Burnley on Thursday night. He will also miss FA Cup semi-final against Southampton and Swansea League visit at Stamford Bridge on April 28th.
FA statement read;
‘Marcos Alonso will miss Chelsea’s next three matches after an Independent Regulatory Commission ruled he had committed an act of violent conduct against Southampton’s Shane Long.
Alonso denied the charge and further submitted that if found proven the suspension would be excessive, however, this was rejected following Wednesday’s hearing.’

Manchester City has announced Sergio Aguero has undergone a minor knee surgery. The Argentine has not started a match since 4th March when he played in the 1-0 win against Chelsea. He has since made two substitute appearances against Manchester United and Liverpool. The club statement stated that Ashley Young tackle in the Derby aggravated the injury. He is out for the remainder of the season. SokkaaStars should, therefore, stay away from him in the striker category to avoid dropping valuable points.
1.Neymar- Fractured metatarsal
Paris Saint-Germain is still without World most expensive player Neymar. The Brazilin suffered a fractured metatarsal in February. He is expected to return to training later in April according to his Coach Unai Emery. He is therefore not available for selection in SokkaaStars striker category.
