2022/23 Premier League Press Conferences – GW4



RULED OUT: Reiss Nelson (muscle)


“Everybody has trained this week and everybody is fine, so hopefully we’ll have a full team to select from, apart from Reiss [Nelson] who has been injured for a few weeks now.” – Mikel Arteta




RULED OUT: Diego Carlos (Achilles)


AVAILABLE: Ludwig Augustinsson (knee)


“Ludwig [Augustinsson] has trained today, he missed midweek with a bit of a tweak in his knee area but he’s fine. So we should be healthy going into the weekend. We’ve obviously got tomorrow’s session to go prior to the game, so fingers crossed we should be healthy.” – Steven Gerrard




RULED OUT: Joe Rothwell (thigh), Ryan Fredericks (calf), David Brooks (match fitness), Junior Stanislas (groin)


MIGHT PLAY: Dominic Solanke (ankle), Jamal Lowe (illness)


Dominic Solanke will train with us tomorrow for the first time, full training. So hopefully, if he comes through that can be an option for us at the weekend.” – Scott Parker




RULED OUT: Kristoffer Ajer (match fitness), Sergi Canos (hamstring), Ethan Pinnock (knee)


AVAILABLE: Mads Roerslev (knock), Keane Lewis-Potter (knock)




RULED OUT: Jakub Moder (knee), Jeremy Sarmiento (knee)




RULED OUT: Kalidou Koulibaly (suspension), N’Golo Kante (hamstring), Marcos Alonso (other)


AVAILABLE: Mateo Kovacic (knee), Armando Broja (knock)


N’Golo [Kante] is the only one who did not train now through this week. Everybody is back in training. Kovacic is back in the group and ready to play 20 minutes. We need him long-term but it’s good to have him as an option.” – Thomas Tuchel




RULED OUT: James McArthur (groin), James Tomkins (muscle), Jack Butland (hand), Nathan Ferguson (foot)




RULED OUT: Dominic Calvert-Lewin (knee), Abdoulaye Doucoure (hamstring), Ben Godfrey (leg), Yerry Mina (ankle), Andros Townsend (knee), Andre Gomes (muscle)


MIGHT PLAY: Tom Davies (groin)


“Doucoure is injured, Dominic Calvert-Lewin will train next week. Other than that I think we’re pretty much as we were. I think [Calvert-Lewin] is slightly ahead of schedule but we must be calm because we can’t push him at this stage. If he trains in the middle of next week will it make him available for Liverpool [in GW6]? That’ll be tough.” – Frank Lampard




RULED OUT: Harry Wilson (knee), Manor Solomon (knee)


MIGHT PLAY: Neeskens Kebano (groin)




RULED OUT: Stuart Dallas (leg), Luke Ayling (knee), Junior Firpo (knee)


MIGHT PLAY: Patrick Bamford (groin)


AVAILABLE: Liam Cooper (knock)


“The big question mark is Patrick Bamford – he’s doing well and moving forward. I think also with the performances of the team it allows us to be patient, but we will still have a call to make for exactly what it means for this weekend.” – Jesse Marsch




RULED OUT: Ricardo Pereira (Achilles), Ryan Bertrand (knee), Wesley Fofana (other)


MIGHT PLAY: James Maddison (muscle)


“We’ve got an issue around James [Maddison] but we’ll see how that is tomorrow. That would be the only doubt at the moment. He just felt a twinge when he was training yesterday.” – Brendan Rodgers




RULED OUT: Darwin Nunez (suspended), Thiago (hamstring), Ibrahima Konate (knee), Joel Matip (groin), Diogo Jota (thigh), Curtis Jones (calf), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (hamstring), Caoimhin Kelleher (muscle), Calvin Ramsey (muscle), Naby Keita (muscle)


This weekend probably not but after that Joel [Matip], Curtis [Jones], Thiago is not too far away, Diogo [Jota] is getting closer. Caoimhin [Kelleher] will be in training early next week as well. I don’t think anyone will be ready for tomorrow.” – Jurgen Klopp




RULED OUT: Aymeric Laporte (knee)


MIGHT PLAY: Jack Grealish (knock), Nathan Ake (groin), Kalvin Phillips (shoulder)


“We train this afternoon and we will know exactly the situation with everyone [afterwards].” – Pep Guardiola




RULED OUT: Anthony Martial (Achilles), Victor Lindelof (thigh), Facundo Pellistri (ankle)




Anthony Martial is not fit. He came out with a problem on his Achilles, [coming] out of the game, so we have to wait. I cannot tell a prognosis on how long it takes but we hope he will be available for the next game [Leicester]. – Erik ten Hag




RULED OUT: Callum Wilson (groin), Emil Krafth (knee), Jonjo Shelvey (hamstring)


AVAILABLE: Dan Burn (concussion), Jamaal Lascelles (nose), Matt Targett (hamstring), Ryan Fraser (groin)


With Callum’s [Wilson] injury, which we don’t believe to be serious, we’re hopeful that Callum will only be out for a couple of weeks but naturally I think we reacted slightly off that. – Eddie Howe on the imminent signing of Alexander Isak




RULED OUT: Omar Richards (leg), Moussa Niakhate (thigh)


MIGHT PLAY: Jack Colback (illness)




RULED OUT: Tino Livramento (knee)


MIGHT PLAY: Romain Perraud (leg)


“Romain [Perraud] trained today and looked good. He wasn’t ready for the cup game but we will see for this weekend.” – Ralph Hasenhuttl




RULED OUT: Cristian Romero (muscle), Oliver Skipp (foot)


MIGHT PLAY: Bryan Gil (knock), Lucas Moura (knock)




RULED OUT: Nayef Aguerd (ankle)


MIGHT PLAY: Craig Dawson (thigh), Vladimir Coufal (concussion)


“I thought Gianluca [Scamacca] did a lot of good things [but] we can’t be expecting too much too soon. We need to give him a chance to get ready. He scored two goals in two games, so he’s certainly getting a lot closer to being ready to play.” – David Moyes




RULED OUT: Chiquinho (knee)


“Everyone [else] is training” – Bruno Lage
