ShareClose Comments
Goal keeps you up to date on the latest news regarding players who have been banned or will miss games due to injury

It's important for fantasy football managers to stay on top of their squad's health and availability if they are to ensure they bring home the best possible points haul.

Players pick up injuries throughout the season and some big names are even missing the start of the new campaign, while others will undoubtedly be on the receiving end of suspensions.

It can be difficult to stay on top of who is injured and sometimes suspensions can even sneak up on you, so  Goal has compiled a list of all the players who are unable or unlikely to play, either through injury or suspension.

Note: Positions are based on those in the Fantasy Premier League game.
