Fantasy Premier League Is Becoming A Growing Issue For Clubs, Discussed At Board Level

Fantasy Premier League Is Becoming A Growing Issue For Clubs, Discussed At Board Level

Premier League clubs have discussed the negative impact Fantasy Premier League is having in regards to team news leaking.

Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish was ruled out of yesterday's clash with Leicester City due to injury - but many already knew thanks to FPL.

The Athletic have reported teammates Matt Targett, Conor Hourihane [on loan at Swansea City] and Neil Taylor all transferred the 25-year-old out of their team prior to his injury being confirmed.

Other members of staff also did so, including physio Rob Marshall.

Information regarding FPL is quite easy to obtain and there is currently no regulation from the Premier League regarding it.

It is believed staff could be encouraged to not pick players from their own teams to give away crucial information.

Villa manager Dean Smith discussed Grealish's injury following Sunday's 2-1 defeat and he was aware of the news.

He stated: "I've been made aware that on social media there were some rumours that he wasn't going to play. If it's coming out of our training ground, then I find out where it is coming from and reprimand where it's coming from.

"Yeah, it certainly does [give a leg up] and it's something I wouldn't be happy with so we'll certainly get to the bottom of this."
