MIGHT PLAY: Ollie Watkins (ankle)


AVAILABLE: Jacob Ramsey (knock)


“Ollie [Watkins] hasn’t trained yet since the game but he’s still got a chance to be involved. We’re hoping he’s going to take part in tomorrow’s session. He’s got a knock on his ankle. I don’t think it’s too serious. All being well, he’ll be available. Jacob [Ramsey] is back in the group, he’s trained for the last couple of days and is looking good. So, that’s a big positive for us. Buendía left training yesterday but [worked] today.” – Steven Gerrard

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


MIGHT PLAY: Mateo Kovacic (ankle), N’Golo Kante (knock)

Donny van de Beek is getting closer, I’d like to think he might be involved on Sunday – if not, on Thursday.” – Frank Lampard

MIGHT PLAY: Ryan Fraser (hamstring)


AVAILABLE: Callum Wilson (calf), Kieran Tripper (foot)


“I think both players would say they would be very keen to start. We’ve got to make sure they’re fit enough and physically good enough to last a long period in the game, as obviously I can’t be making too many changes too early.” – Eddie Howe on the return of Kieran Trippier and Callum Wilson
