2021/22 Premier League Press Conferences – GW32



RULED OUT: Kieran Tierney (knee), Thomas Partey (thigh), Takehiro Tomiyasu (calf)


MIGHT PLAY: Nicolas Pepe (illness)


“Partey has a significant injury and we will have to keep assessing him. He will be out for some weeks.” – Mikel Arteta




MIGHT PLAY: Kortney Hause (abdominal), Marvelous Nakamba (match fitness)


AVAILABLE: Lucas Digne (stomach), Danny Ings (personal), Tyrone Mings (knock), Emiliano Buendia (knock)


“We’re likely to make some changes. Marvelous Nakamba was one we’ve been waiting for and he’s had 60 minutes in the Under-23s and a strong week, so he’ll come into the squad. Tyrone [Mings] trained yesterday and he’s been OK, so he’s available. Emi [Buendia] trained today and assuming there’s no reaction, he’ll be available. That makes us virtually full strength.” – Steven Gerrard




RULED OUT: Josh Dasilva (hamstring), Frank Onyeka (ankle)




RULED OUT: Jakub Moder (knee)


MIGHT PLAY: Adam Webster (groin), Adam Lallana (hamstring)


AVAILABLE: Moises Caicedo (illness)


“Jakub [Moder] is really, really disappointed and upset, but he now wants to start the process of coming back fitter and stronger. We will of course support him through that.” – Graham Potter




RULED OUT: Ben Mee (knee), Erik Pieters (knee), Johann Berg Gudmundsson (calf)


“No-one back for this one. Ben Mee is beginning to make progress, as is Erik Pieters. They’re back on the grass but on the medical side still, not with us. Johann [Berg Gudmundsson] is going to be a longer-term one.” – Sean Dyche




RULED OUT: Callum Hudson-Odoi (back), Ben Chilwell (knee)


MIGHT PLAY: Romelu Lukaku (knock), Hakim Ziyech (knock)


“Callum Hudson-Odoi is still out. We are a bit in doubt with Romelu [Lukaku] and Hakim Ziyech. They were not in training yesterday due to little problems. We need a test and confirmation from training if they are available.” – Thomas Tuchel




RULED OUT: Nathan Ferguson (hamstring)


AVAILABLE: Michael Olise (foot)


“Everybody is feeling good. Nathan (Ferguson) had a step back but outside of him everyone is training tomorrow.” – Patrick Vieira

MIGHT PLAY: Andre Gomes (knock)


AVAILABLE: Allan (back from suspension), Michael Keane (back from suspension), Seamus Coleman (illness), Fabian Delph (thigh)

RULED OUT: Patrick Bamford (foot), Junior Firpo (knee), Tyler Roberts (hamstring), Jamie Shackleton (calf),


MIGHT PLAY: Lewis Bate (knock), Joe Gelhardt (dead leg)


“He hasn’t trained every day this week but we think he will train tomorrow and we think he will be available for the match on the weekend. How we use him… we’ll evaluate that as we go.” – Jesse Marsch on Joe Gelhardt




RULED OUT: Jamie Vardy (knee), Wilfred Ndidi (knee), Ryan Bertrand (knee), Danny Ward (knee)


MIGHT PLAY: Ayoze Perez (illness), Boubakary Soumare (abductor muscle)


AVAILABLE: Caglar Soyuncu (illness)


“We’ve got eight games to fit in this month. The same team won’t play every single game, you can’t get the same intensity if you do. We’ll make some changes, and it will be the same for the Thursday game. Jamie [Vardy] won’t be back. He’s got a final injection on Tuesday and we’ll see what the reaction is to that. We’re hoping we get positive news on that. Soyuncu will come back into the squad, apart from that it’s the same.” – Brendan Rodgers




“When I had a look last time on my smartphone, it looked like everybody is available again.” – Jurgen Klopp




RULED OUT: Ruben Dias (hamstring), Cole Palmer (foot)


“Everyone is fit. Not Ruben [Dias] or Cole Palmer.” – Pep Guardiola




RULED OUT: Edinson Cavani (calf), Luke Shaw (leg), Raphael Varane (knock), Scott McTominay (foot)


MIGHT PLAY: Jesse Lingard (illness)


AVAILABLE: Cristiano Ronaldo (illness)


“Cristiano is back again, Luke [Shaw] is still injured. He’s having problems with his leg where he had his operation back in 2015. Cavani is still injured, Varane is still injured, the same is true for Scott McTominay.” – Ralf Rangnick




RULED OUT: Callum Wilson (calf), Kieran Trippier (foot)


MIGHT PLAY: Joe Willock (knee)


AVAILABLE: Miguel Almiron (illness)


“You’ve got Covid as a problem and we have been affected by that in recent weeks. But there seems to be an illness that’s going around, maybe not Covid, that we’ve suffered with. We’ll wait and see whether anyone misses the game.” – Eddie Howe




RULED OUT: Adam Idah (knee), Ozan Kabak (hamstring), Josh Sargent (ankle), Andrew Omobamidele (back)


MIGHT PLAY: Max Aarons (hamstring), Lukas Rupp (hamstring), Brandon Williams (ankle)


“(Ozan) Kabak is going to get treatment at his parent club as it’s a significant hamstring injury that’s ruled him out for the rest of the season.” – Dean Smith




RULED OUT: Armando Broja (ineligible)


MIGHT PLAY: Alex McCarthy (thigh), Shane Long (ankle), Lyanco (hamstring)


“First two sessions, today he will rest, but it is good to have him back.” – Ralph Hasenhuttl on Lyanco




RULED OUT: Japhet Tanganga (knee), Oliver Skipp (groin)


MIGHT PLAY: Ryan Sessegnon (thigh), Sergio Reguilon (knee)


“No new injuries. Good news because Ryan Sessegnon and Sergio Reguilon had a training session today with us. About Olly Skipp, we have to wait. He’s still not ready and we need to have patience with him to try to solve his problem. It was the first time for Ryan Sessegnon for a long time and for sure, with him we have to pay more attention than Sergio, but at the same time it was good to have him with us in the training session.” – Antonio Conte




MIGHT PLAY: Kwadwo Baah (match fitness)




RULED OUT: Angelo Ogbonna (knee)


MIGHT PLAY: Manuel Lanzini (knock)


AVAILABLE: Vladimir Coufal (hernia)


“We’ve needed him [Bowen]. We missed his goals when he wasn’t here and since he’s come back he’s got us a couple of important goals. He’s played well for someone who’s just come back, we need that to continue and for him to keep scoring those goals. We’re still hoping Lanzini can improve and be better. He’s carrying a knock from the car crash. He’s been training, but has been a bit ginger.” – David Moyes




RULED OUT: Raul Jimenez (suspended), Ruben Neves (knee), Ki-Jana Hoever (hamstring)


“Lets see what happens before the end of the season, if he can recover to play games.” – Bruno Lage on Ruben Neves
