The most important questions for you as a manager: Can I use my player this weekend? Is he injured? Fit? Banned? The answers to these questions can be found using the icons on the player pages.
Fit: The player is fit and can be used in gameweeks.
Knock: The player has picked up a minor injury, and his availability for the weekend is uncertain, but not completely out of the question.
Recovery: The player is rehabbing after an injury and is not yet fully fit. A place in the team sheet may still be possible, but unlikely.
Injured: The player has been injured, and is definitely not available for the club.
Absent: The player is currently not at his club. A leave of absence, an international fixture or tournament with his country could be the cause.
Not in Squad: The player is not currently nominated for the Premier League squad and therefore cannot be used. A ban used or a place in the second team may be the reason.
Disciplinary Action: The player has received a suspension or further disciplinary action from the F.A. regarding an incident on or off the field.
Yellow card: Everything that has to do with a yellow card or an accumulation ban.
Red Card: Everything that has to do with a red card.
