For Fantasy Premier League managers, it is important to stay up to date with the latest information on players' availability and fitness.

There are two ways to do this.

The first is to check the team news ticker that appears in the "Fixtures" page of the FPL website or app during the season.

The other is to keep an eye on the FPL team news article.

Updated throughout the week prior to every deadline, this article can help guide decisions.

The FPL team news update takes in the most recent press conferences of all 20 clubs, covering a number of key factors for Fantasy managers.

What to look out for

Players who are doubtful or have been ruled out of their next match through injury. 

Those who have just returned from a spell on the sidelines and are now back in contention. This can give managers the chance to bring them in early as differentials. 

Players who are suspended, either through earning red cards in the previous match or for accumulating a number of bookings across the campaign. 

On-loan signings who are unavailable to face their parent clubs.

Manager quotes on tactics and formations, potentially helping you discover the latest “out of position” prospect for your Fantasy team.
