Report: EPL Team Bans Players From Fantasy Football After Injury Leak

A Premier League side has banned its players and coaching staff from playing Fantasy Premier League (FPL) after an injury leak was said to have come from inside the dressing room.

Aston Villa suffered a 2-1 loss to Leicester City at home in the league this past weekend, a match Jack Grealish missed through injury.

Foxes manager Brendan Rodgers later admitted he was aware that Villa's captain and No. 10 was set to miss the game, despite his opponents not declaring so beforehand.

According to inews, five of Villa's players and coaching staff transferred Grealish out of their FPL teams on Friday, after the game's deadline for the week, leading to suggestions of his upcoming absence doing the rounds on social media.

A Twitter account, FPL Insider, was said to have warned its followers about this on Friday, which was perhaps how the news made its way to Rodgers, allowing him to prepare to face Dean Smith's side without the Villans' star player in mind.

It is claimed that Villa players and backroom staff have subsequently been banned from participating in the popular game, with left-back Matt Targett believed to be the most high-profile player involved.

The Times have since reported that more Premier League clubs are investigating whether or not their players and staff should play FPL as they could be compromising secrecy around their squad.
