2022/23 Premier League Press Conferences – GW10



RULED OUT: Emile Smith Rowe (groin), Mohamed Elneny (hamstring)




RULED OUT: Lucas Digne (ankle), Ludwig Augustinsson (hamstring), Diego Carlos (Achilles), Boubacar Kamara (knee)


MIGHT PLAY: Leon Bailey (muscle), Calum Chambers (appendix)


AVAILABLE: Matty Cash (hamstring)


“Matty Cash is back in full training and he’s available for Nottingham Forest. Calum Chambers has done half of the session today and he’ll continue to pick training up from now until Monday. He’s got a decent chance to be involved.

“Ludwig Augustinsson will be out for around three weeks – he’s got a hamstring injury on the back of the Leeds game. We’ve also got Leon Bailey, who has got a small muscle issue. He’s a doubt for the weekend but he’s not totally ruled out.

“In terms of Lucas Digne, it’s a complicated one that’s going to rumble on for a few more weeks before we can assess it. I’ll have some news on Digne in a couple of weeks, but he won’t be available for Forest.” – Steven Gerrard




RULED OUT: Lloyd Kelly (ankle), David Brooks (hamstring), Junior Stanislas (muscle)


MIGHT PLAY: Ryan Fredericks (knock), Joe Rothwell (thigh), Ben Pearson (knee)




RULED OUT: Pontus Jansson (hamstring), Christian Norgaard (Achilles), Keane Lewis-Potter (foot)


MIGHT PLAY: Ethan Pinnock (match fitness)


AVAILABLE: Sergi Canos (hamstring)




RULED OUT: Jakub Moder (knee), Enock Mwepu (illness)


MIGHT PLAY: Moises Caicedo (knock)


“Moises Caicedo didn’t work with the team yesterday. We will be looking at the situation today, but I don’t think there will be a problem.” – Roberto De Zerbi




RULED OUT: Wesley Fofana (knee), N’Golo Kante (hamstring)


AVAILABLE: Marc Cucurella (illness), Edouard Mendy (knee)


“Wesley’s [Fofana] knee is not as bad as we thought so that was good. It will be a few weeks I think but considerably better than it could be. [A comeback before the World Cup] is a possibility, it depends on how his rehab goes. Wouldn’t want to put too much of a timecale on it but there’s a chance of that. – Graham Potter




RULED OUT: Nathaniel Clyne (ankle), Nathan Ferguson (foot), James McArthur (groin), Jack Butland (hand)


MIGHT PLAY: Chris Richards (knock), Joachim Andersen (calf)


“Joachim Andersen has trained the last couple of days” – Patrick Vieira




RULED OUT: Nathan Patterson (knee), Mason Holgate (knee), Ben Godfrey (leg), Andros Townsend (knee)


MIGHT PLAY: Dominic Calvert-Lewin (knee), Yerry Mina (match fitness)


“We’ll see how match fit he is but, in terms of the injury, he’s better. He’s a good player for us, pivotal to us staying in the league last season.” – Frank Lampard on Dominic Calvert-Lewin




RULED OUT: Nathaniel Chalobah (suspension), Harry Wilson (knee), Manor Solomon (knee)


MIGHT PLAY: Aleksandar Mitrovic (foot), Kenny Tete (knock), Antonee Robinson (ankle), Layvin Kurzawa (knock), Willian (calf)


AVAILABLE: Joao Palhinha (back from suspension)


“He’s still a doubt. He was outside this morning, doing some work. He’s getting better but still a doubt.” – Marco Silva on Aleksandar Mitrovic




RULED OUT: Luis Sinisterra (suspended), Stuart Dallas (leg), Adam Forshaw (ankle), Leo Hjelde (appendix)


“He’s fitter and trained well this week. He’s ready to go and there’s a high likelihood he’ll be ready from the start.” – Jesse Marsch on Patrick Bamford




RULED OUT: Wilfried Ndidi (hamstring), Ricardo Pereira (Achilles), Ryan Bertrand (knee)


MIGHT PLAY: Nampalys Mendy (knee)


Wilfred Ndidi will probably be out for a little bit. He came back from international duty with a hamstring strain. He recovered well but he felt it at half-time in the game and he was a little sore, so he might miss a few weeks. – Brendan Rodgers




RULED OUT: Andrew Robertson (knee), Naby Keita (muscle), Arthur Melo (muscle), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (hamstring)


MIGHT PLAY: Curtis Jones (match fitness)


“The one new injury is Arthur Melo, in the last session before the Rangers game. A normal situation, he just injured a muscle. We have to wait for further assessment to know how long it will be but he’s out. Robbo [Robertson] is running a lot, looks like he’s close. Probably Curtis [Jones] now the closest, then Robbo, then the other two. Step by step.” – Jurgen Klopp




RULED OUT: Kyle Walker (groin), John Stones (hamstring), Kalvin Phillips (shoulder)


The same as the doctor said, I think, he’s out for a few weeks. – Pep Guardiola on Kyle Walker




RULED OUT: Harry Maguire (hamstring), Donny van de Beek (knock), Aaron Wan-Bissaka (knock), Brandon Williams (unspecified)


MIGHT PLAY: Raphael Varane (ankle)


“Raphael Varane makes progress, and I hope he’s available, but I think it will be close. From the other players, Harry Maguire [is] not [available] and then it’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Donny van de Beek, both not [fit].” – Erik ten Hag




RULED OUT: Alexander Isak (thigh), Emil Krafth (knee), Jonjo Shelvey (hamstring), Karl Darlow (ankle)


MIGHT PLAY: Allan Saint-Maximin (hamstring)


AVAILABLE: Joelinton (knock)


He’s doing OK. He’s trained well this week and we’re pleased with him. He’s making good progress. There’s a chance [he could be in the squad tomorrow]. – Eddie Howe on Allan Saint-Maximin


He’s running on grass and increasing his speed so he’s in a good place. The medical team are just holding him back slightly from any more than that, hopefully it wont be too long.” – Eddie Howe on Alexander Isak




RULED OUT: Omar Richards (leg)


MIGHT PLAY: Moussa Niakhate (thigh)




RULED OUT: Romeo Lavia (muscle), Tino Livramento (knee)


MIGHT PLAY: Adam Armstrong (knock), Juan Larios (knock)


“We had some issues with Arma [Adam Armstrong] and Juan [Larios] with small injuries but they should be available for the weekend. One or two players have been out with a little bit of illness but they have also been back on the pitch today so the group, so far, is together like it was.” – Ralph Hasenhuttl




RULED OUT: Emerson Royal (suspended), Lucas Moura (tendon)


MIGHT PLAY: Dejan Kulusevski (hamstring)




RULED OUT: Maxwel Cornet (calf), Nayef Aguerd (ankle)


AVAILABLE: Ben Johnson (hamstring)


“He’s [Cornet] got a small calf strain. I don’t think it’s as bad as we first feared but it will keep him out for a few days. Elsewhere, we’ve got a few knocks and niggles but hopefully we’ll be OK by the time we get to Sunday.” – David Moyes




RULED OUT: Pedro Neto (ankle), Ruben Neves (suspension), Nathan Collins (suspension), Sasa Kalajdzic (knee), Raul Jimenez (groin), Chiquinho (knee)


MIGHT PLAY: Hwang Hee-chan (knock)


Pedro sustained an ankle injury against West Ham on Saturday where he strained the lateral ligaments. Following further evaluation and a specialist opinion this week, it is planned for him to undergo surgery. This means that, unfortunately, he will not be fit for the upcoming World Cup.” – Club statement on Pedro Neto
