Jeffrey Schlupp is now healthy but could remain on the bench after Leo Ulloa put in a great performance in his place last week.
Schlupp missed last week due to a small knock and his replacement Leo Ulloa was fantastic in dismantling Newcastle. Claudio Ranieri could choose to start Ulloa again, but neither Schlupp nor Ulloa would hold any fantasy value against arguably the best defense in the Premier League tomorrow.
Mark Noble is suspended for gameweek 14 due to accumulating five yellow cards on the season.
Noble will miss week 14's match against West Brom and either Pedro Obiang or Alex Song will replace Noble in the starting XI but neither of them hold fantasy value worth holding onto.
Ramires is doubtful for Chelsea upcoming trip to White Hart Lane.
Ramires has a muscle injury and Jose Mourinho stated he'd "wait and see". Mourinho also noted that Ramires is in the same situation as Terry, who is very doubtful for the match, and it doesn't seem like Ramires will play Sunday. Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas will likely draw starts.
While the Manchester City defense continues to struggle with injuries, the clubs attacking corps was given a major boost with the return of David Silva and Wilfried Bony.
Silva was cleared fit after missing the last six weeks due to an ankle injury that has plagued him throughout his City career. Meanwhile, Bony was fortunate to miss only one match after using the international break to recover from a hamstring injury sustained in Week 12. Silva has a chance of starting against Southampton as Jesus Navas and Fernando have filled in in recent weeks while Bony is unlikely to see too much playing time upon his return due to Sergio Aguero's recent return.
Manchester City will be without three starting defenders when the club faces off with Southampton on Saturday as Pablo Zabaleta, Vincent Kompany and Eliaquim Mangala were all ruled out with various injuries.
Manager Manuel Pellegrini said at his weekly press conference that Zabaleta has aggravated a preexisting knee injury while Mangala will not play this week: "Zabaleta is out for a couple of weeks more – he has the same injury in the ligament in his knee. He needs a treatment now so he will be out for at least ten days, while Mangala has a muscle problem in his hamstring but I think he will be fit for Stoke." Kompany, meanwhile, continues to struggle with a calf injury that has bothered him for the past month. Martin Demichelis, Bacary Sagna and Nicolas Otamendi are expected to fill in.
Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini confirmed the news that goalkeeper Joe Hart will miss the weekend and likely Week 15 as well with a hamstring injury.
Said Pellegrini on Friday: "Joe Hart has a muscle injury - you never know as it depends how he improves but I think he will be out for ten days." Hart injured the hamstring late in Wednesday's 1-0 Champions loss to Juventus in Turin. Pellegrini confirmed Willy Caballero will receive his second Premier League start of the season while Richard Wright will be the backup keeper for the match against Southampton.
John Terry has "little hope" of making Chelsea's match against Tottenham this weekend.
That should open up the way for Gary Cahill and Kurt Zouma to partner each other in the back. Neither Cahill nor Zouma hold a lot of fantasy value against an above average Tottenham side. Terry picked up a muscle injury when Chelsea faced Tel Aviv in the Champions League in midweek and the extent of his injury is unknown, so he might miss extended time.
Graziano Pelle will miss the Week 14 trip to the Etihad due to an accumulation of yellow cards.
With Manchester City reeling from consecutive defeats since the end of the international break they get a break with the absence of Graziano Pelle. The Italian forward misses out due to accumulation and will return in Week 15. Shane Long will deputize with Jay Rodriguez suffering from a significant injury.
