LEICESTER CITY

 

Ruled out: James Justin, Wesley Fofana

 

Might play: Jonny Evans

 

“He’s recovering after the game and was a little sore, like most of the players on the second day, but it’s good news for us, he’s come through it.

SOUTHAMPTON

 

Ruled out: Jack Stephens, Stuart Armstrong, Will Smallbone

 

Might play: Theo Walcott

 

“We have now with Jack Stephens a player who is long out, 10 to 12 weeks maybe, so we need every centre-back. A long-term injury is always a blow to us. The tendon on the knee is disrupted, so it’s a tendon injury. It takes, I don’t know how long, but it will take time.” – Ralph Hasenhuttl

WEST HAM UNITED

 

Ruled out: Ryan Fredericks

 

“Ryan’s probably the only player we’ve got any real major concerns over. He felt his groin and he’s had an injury prior to it before, so he’s being assessed at the moment.” – David Moyes

Ruled out: Rayan Ait-Nouri, Yerson Mosquera, Jonny, Pedro Neto
