Not looking good at all. Nothing like starting the season with the bare bones of a squad:

James McCarthy

Calf/Shin/Heel Injury

Aug 29: "It was a nasty bang that he took on the outside of his calf. I'm not certain he'll be fit even to play for [Ireland]; he'll need more time because it was such a bad bruise."

12/09/2020


James Tomkins

Thigh Injury

June 19: "It's a bit disappointing, James [was] injured when we stopped and I was rather hoping [he'd] recover. But [he's] picked up a fresh injury."

No Return Date


Gary Cahill

Thigh Injury

July 25: "It's a serious injury and it's going to take him a good while as there's a tendon involved in the muscle tear."

No Return Date


Patrick van Aanholt

Shoulder Injury

July 19: "[His shoulder] is dislocated and he's had it assessed. He'll need an operation. We'll have to see how it goes; there's no timescale as yet for when he's back."

No Return Date


Mamadou Sakho

Other

July 20: "It's definitely pulled - a tear to the muscle. The question will be how big a tear is it and we've got to hope it's not as big as Gary Cahill's."

No Return Date

Currently Being Assessed


Christian Benteke

Ankle/Foot Injury

July 24: "Christian's got a cracked bone in his foot. [It's] amazing really as he played so long with that cracked bone, we thought it was a bone bruise."

No Return Date


Nathan Ferguson

Knee Injury

Aug 25: "It's a tricky one because it was a knee injury, and an important one. It's that difficult moment - when do you put him back into competitive training? No-one's got a 100 per cent answer."

No Return Date

Eberechi Eze

Groin/Hip/Pelvic Injury

Aug 29: "Unfortunately, he felt his groin at half-time but he does not think it's too serious and neither does the doctor."

No Return Date

Currently Being Assessed

Those dates you give are ages ago, June-July.

Here we are in September, anybody have any updates?

No but since none of the mentioned players (apart from Eze and McCarthy) even made the bench during pre-season, we aren't going to see them this weekend nor probably the game at OT.

WE will have to see what RHJ says when he gives his first pre-match interview later this week.

McCarthy, of course, did turn out for ROI for about 70 minutes, so presumably, he'll be ok

Tomkins is a concern as he's been out since Feb and had 3 months complete rest during lockdown so was hoping we might see him before end of last season. Now 3 more months on and still no news

Cahill's looked a 3 month plus injury as he's clearly torn his hamstring, rather than a less severe pull.With his ages maybe it's taking a little longer.

Sakho and Benteke - it's just the same old with those two, isn't it really. Both pick up injuries quite regularly and can't be relied on.

No mention of Wickham - is he just permanently injured???

What makes you think he's injured as I presume that he is being kept out of harm's way so as not to prejudice a sale or loan

Well that explains why there's a shortage in cotton wool.

no one will buy him, even on a free, as he's wages are too high.

If we want to get rid of him, why give him a new contract?

And if we did want to sell him surely you have to put him in the shop window i.e. play him for 20-30 minutes in friendlies.

Your logic is flawed

James McCarthy is fit. I watched Ireland game the other day and he played.

According to Roy’s pre Southampton press conference today:

8 players unavailable for the game ( 2 attackers and 5 defenders - I am guessing the other is a midfielder!)

Eberechi Eze is fit but not match fit

Christian Benteke & Connor Wickham are both out injured

Mamadou Sakho had his first day back in training today

Nathan Ferguson (Knee - unsure of return date)

James Tomkins, Gary Cahill and Patrick van Aanholt are all out injured but hoping to see 1 or 2 back before the next international break

To me it feels like we are going to see Eze playing tomorrow, so I am guessing James McCarthy is the eight player unavailable and must have picked up an injury/knock while on international duty?

Looking at today’s team sheet, it looks like the 8th injured player is Jairo Riedewald. Which is a shame as he was looking very good in pre season games.
