2021/22 Premier League Press Conferences – GW36



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


MIGHT PLAY: Ben White (hamstring)


“Ben White is still in contention, he needs to train tomorrow to make sure that he is available to play. For the rest, no news, everybody should be OK and ready to play.” – Mikel Arteta




RULED OUT: Leon Bailey (ankle), Kortney Hause (abdominal)


MIGHT PLAY: Jacob Ramsey (knock)


AVAILABLE: Morgan Sanson (knock)


“[We’ve had] a few disappointing situations that we’re going to have to deal with in the next 24 hours. Leon Bailey won’t make the game. He left the pitch last week and unfortunately this game will come too soon. We had an issue in training with young Jacob Ramsey as well, so we’re analysing his situation and he’s a big doubt as we stand.” – Steven Gerrard




RULED OUT: Ethan Pinnock (hamstring), Zanka (thigh), Sergi Canos (hamstring), Frank Onyeka (ankle)


MIGHT PLAY: Saman Ghoddos (ankle)




RULED OUT: Enock Mwepu (groin), Jakub Moder (knee), Jeremy Sarmiento (hamstring)


“Enock [Mwepu] will miss United, a slight injury in his groin which probably means that will be him for the rest of the season. Jeremy [Sarmiento] is still out, Jakub [Moder] obviously long-term, but everyone else is okay.” – Graham Potter




RULED OUT: Ashley Westwood (ankle), Johann Berg Gudmundsson (calf), Ben Mee (leg)


MIGHT PLAY: Maxwel Cornet (knee), Jay Rodriguez (calf), Erik Pieters (knee)


“J-Rod [Rodriguez], there’s still a little bit with his hamstring, so we’re having a little look at him. Erik [Pieters] is back on the grass, looking really good, trained all week. Maxi [Cornet] has been out on the grass with us today. Ben [Mee] is back on the grass a little bit, he’s doing a bit more running.” – Mike Jackson




RULED OUT: N’Golo Kante (knock), Jorginho (knock), Callum Hudson-Odoi (achilles), Ben Chilwell (knee)


AVAILABLE: Andreas Christensen (illness), Ross Barkley (illness)


“For N’Golo [Kante], it comes a little bit too early, the match. Jorgi is out as well. Callum [Hudson-Odoi] is still out, Ben Chilwell is still out. That’s pretty much it, the rest is available.” – Thomas Tuchel




RULED OUT: Nathan Ferguson (hamstring)


“Everybody trained this week and the only one [out] is Nathan Ferguson who is following his individual training on the field. Hopefully, he’ll train with the group before the end of the season.” – Patrick Vieira




RULED OUT: Donny van de Beek (groin), Ben Godfrey (thigh), Andros Townsend (knee), Nathan Patterson (ankle)


MIGHT PLAY: Richarlison (ankle)


AVAILABLE: Andre Gomes (groin)


“Richarlison is a bit sore from the ankle he twisted at Liverpool, that’s been around since then, but hopefully he will be fine. We’ve had a pretty good week, a bit of recovery time for the lads. A couple of little niggles but hopefully we’ll be the same as we were.” – Frank Lampard




RULED OUT: Stuart Dallas (leg), Adam Forshaw (knee), Tyler Roberts (hamstring), Crysencio Summerville (ankle)


MIGHT PLAY: Patrick Bamford (foot), Liam Cooper (knee), Diego Llorente (knock)


“He had a successful [but long] surgery [around] five and a half hours. The outcome was very positive and they say it will be a long, but a full recovery.” – Jesse Marsch on Stuart Dallas




RULED OUT: Wilfred Ndidi (knee), Ryan Bertrand (knee)




MIGHT PLAY: Roberto Firmino (foot)


“He’s back in training, so now we have to make a decision about that. The foot thing didn’t let him do a lot, we had to let it settle. Now we have to make sure he has a few proper sessions. It might be possible that it makes more sense to train through the weekend, a big step closer for Tuesday, for example.” – Jurgen Klopp on Roberto Firmino




RULED OUT: John Stones (muscle)


MIGHT PLAY: Kyle Walker (ankle)


AVAILABLE: Aymeric Laporte (cramp)




RULED OUT: Marcus Rashford (bronchitis), Jadon Sancho (tonsilitis), Luke Shaw (leg), Paul Pogba (calf)


MIGHT PLAY: Aaron Wan-Bissaka (knock), Eric Bailly (back)


AVAILABLE: Harry Maguire (knee)


“Harry [Maguire] is back in training. He trained the whole week, since the [first] or the second day after the Brentford game. So, he will be available for tomorrow and be part of the group.” – Ralf Rangnick




RULED OUT: Ryan Fraser (hamstring)


MIGHT PLAY: Callum Wilson (calf), Fabian Schar (foot), Kieran Tripper (foot)


“We hope he’ll be back available but he’s not trained yet. He got a knock on the top of his foot so went for a scan after the Liverpool game because it was swollen. Fortunately, there was no fracture.” – Eddie Howe on Fabian Schar




RULED OUT: Josh Sargent (ankle), Kenny McLean (foot), Adam Idah (knee), Ozan Kabak (hamstring), Andrew Omobamidele (back), Christoph Zimmermann (groin)


“Kenny [McLean] and Josh [Sargent] are out for the rest of the season. Like Andrew [Omodambiele] and Adam [Idah], they will work to get ready for pre-season. Zimmermann is still out with a groin problem.” – Dean Smith




RULED OUT: Tino Livramento (knee)

RULED OUT: Sergio Reguilon (groin), Matt Doherty (knee), Japhet Tanganga (knee), Oliver Skipp (groin)


“He is not available. He hasn’t had a training session with us. Honestly, I don’t know – because there are only two weeks before the end of the season – if it will be possible for him to come back.” – Antonio Conte




RULED OUT: Cucho Hernandez (hamstring)


MIGHT PLAY: Francisco Sierralta (calf), Tom Cleverley (knock), Craig Cathcart (illness)

MIGHT PLAY: Daniel Podence (foot)
