Many players in the English Premier League face the possibility of missing the last round, which will precede the 2022 World Cup, to be held in Qatar this month.

The English clubs are playing two rounds (15 and 16), which will actually end on November 13, before the World Cup begins on the 20th of the same month.

And the British newspaper, “Daily Mail”, stated in a report that there are 11 players who may miss the weekend after the next Premier League suspension if they receive a yellow card in the fifteenth round, which may be in their interest because they are not injured before the start of the World Cup.

She added that the list includes England captain Harry Kane, and if he receives a yellow card in the match between Tottenham and Liverpool next Sunday, this means his absence from the tour that will precede the World Cup, which will be against Leeds United.

England coach Gareth Southgate fears for his players, especially since there are a number of players who may miss the World Cup, including Chelsea duo Ben Chilwell and Reece James, in addition to Manchester City duo Kyle Walker and Calvin Phillips.

Another player to watch out for in Tottenham’s clash with Liverpool is Uruguayan Rodrigo Bentancur, who is also threatened with suspension if he receives a yellow card against the Reds.

Also on Sunday, Manchester United travel to the West Midlands to face Aston Villa with Unai Emery.

United’s Portuguese full-back Diogo Dalot is close to a one-match ban, and if that happens, he will miss the Fulham tour before the World Cup.

Premier League leaders Arsenal play the London derby against Chelsea on Sunday, but they also have two players one card away from suspension.

Brazil striker Gabriel Jesus and France international William Saliba will miss next weekend’s trip to Wolverhampton if the pair receive a yellow card against the Blues.

Brazil is among the favorites to win the World Cup this winter, and Jesus will do his best to help his country lift the trophy for the first time since the 2002 tournament.

In contrast, William Saliba joined the French national team this year and wants to avoid a late injury so he can play in his first World Cup, as his country looks to defend the trophy they won in Russia four years ago.

On the other hand, West Ham United’s German Thilo Kehrer will play against Crystal Palace on Sunday, and if he receives a yellow card, he will miss the Leicester City match in the last game before the World Cup break.

Fabian Schar is one of the most fit defenders in the Premier League this season for Newcastle, and he hopes he does not suffer a last-minute injury before he travels with the Swiss team to the World Cup and of course the suspension will be in his favour if he receives a yellow card that prevents him from participating in the next round.

Meanwhile, there are four players to watch out for on Saturday, including Aleksandar Mitrovic of Fulham.

And if Serbian Mitrovic gets a yellow card against Manchester City, it means he will miss his team’s match at Old Trafford against Man United next week on November 13.

Also, Argentine Alexis McAllister of Brighton is another player who aspires to participate in the World Cup.

Mac Allister and Brighton travel to Wolverhampton and if he gets a card, he will miss his team’s match against Aston Villa next week.

There is Chris Mepham, who will be part of the Welsh national team in their first appearance in the World Cup since 1958, and his yellow warning against Leeds will lead to his absence from the last round before the World Cup against Everton.

Finally, Everton’s Amadou Onana, who made his international debut for Belgium last June, may miss the last game before the World Cup if a yellow card is shown in his face against Leicester.

In the end, there will be great fears among the players of being injured during the next two rounds because they aspire to participate in the World Cup.

The technical staff of the teams will feel comfortable if their players receive yellow cards in the next round in order to rest them and not be injured before the World Cup, especially since there is only one week between stopping the local competitions and the start of the World Cup.
