The Scout highlights players who will miss or are close to missing matches

During the traditionally busy festive period, Fantasy Premier League managers must take into account not only rotation but the absence of players in their squads through suspension.

Any player earning five bookings from their side's first 19 Premier League matches serves a one-match ban in the competition. Yellow cards are not carried over to the EFL Cup or FA Cup.

Popular picks Harry Kane (£11.6m), Aleksandar Mitrovic (£6.8m), Gabriel Jesus (£8.0m) and William Saliba (£5.3m) are among those one yellow card from a ban.

Players who accumulate 10 yellow cards in Premier League matches up to and including their team's 32nd fixture will serve a two-match ban in the competition.

Rodrigo Bentancur (£5.4m) marred a fine two-goal display in Tottenham Hotspur's 4-3 win over Leeds United with his fifth yellow card of the campaign. He will be forced to sit out the Boxing Day the trip to Brentford.

In the same contest, Tyler Adams (£4.9m) was sent off for two bookable offences, triggering a one-match ban for the Leeds United midfielder. He will miss the meeting with Manchester City on 28 December.
