RULED OUT: Jack Stephens (unable to face parent club), Lloyd Kelly (ankle), David Brooks (hamstring)




RULED OUT: Pontus Jansson (hamstring), Aaron Hickey (ankle), Christian Norgaard (Achilles), Thomas Strakosha (ankle)




RULED OUT: Kaoru Mitoma (ankle), Jakub Moder (knee)


MIGHT PLAY: Levi Colwill (knock), Jan Paul van Hecke (knock)


“We have Colwill with some problems, van Hecke the same but the others are in good condition. Mitoma [is out] too for this game for sure, and maybe for Manchester City. Tomorrow, Lallana plays for the first XI.” – Roberto De Zerbi




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


MIGHT PLAY: Hakim Ziyech (illness)


“I think Kepa’s form is really pleasing for everybody. It’s nice we have competition in that area and we need players to push each other as that is how they get better.” – Graham Potter




RULED OUT: Nathaniel Clyne (ankle), Will Hughes (illness), Nathan Ferguson (match fitness), James McArthur (groin), Chris Richards (hamstring)




RULED OUT: Nathan Patterson (knee), Ben Godfrey (leg), Andros Townsend (knee), Yerry Mina (calf)


AVAILABLE: Anthony Gordon (back from suspension), Mason Holgate (match fitness)


Yerry [Mina] had a small issue in his rehab last week so he won’t be involved. Mason [Holgate] is in the squad. Ben Godfrey is also on the training pitches, early stages but good to see. We’ve got to be careful with Dominic [Calvert-Lewin] coming back, in terms of training, making sure that we gradually bring him in but as quick as possible. It’s a fine balance, that one. – Frank Lampard




RULED OUT: Nathaniel Chalobah (suspension), Kenny Tete (muscle), Layvin Kurzawa (calf), Manor Solomon (knee)




RULED OUT: Stuart Dallas (leg),


MIGHT PLAY: Adam Forshaw (ankle), Leo Hjelde (appendix), Archie Gray (toe)




RULED OUT: James Maddison (suspended), Jonny Evans (calf), Wilfried Ndidi (hamstring), Ricardo Pereira (Achilles), Ryan Bertrand (knee), Caglar Soyuncu (knee)




RULED OUT: Diogo Jota (calf), Luis Diaz (knee), Joel Matip (calf), Naby Keita (muscle), Arthur Melo (muscle), Ibrahima Konate (muscle), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (match fitness)


MIGHT PLAY: Curtis Jones (match fitness)


Really not good news about Diogo [Jota] – yes, he will miss the World Cup. Pretty serious injury, in the calf muscle. Now we have to recover, the process starts. – Jurgen Klopp


“I think all the other players who started the [Man City] game are available again. Curtis [Jones] was on the bench, it was clear we will not bring him on, we just had space. He needs further training until he’s really available. He could be a step closer now after two days but didn’t train yesterday, so maybe half a step!” – Jurgen Klopp




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


MIGHT PLAY: Anthony Martial (back), Christian Eriksen (illness)


AVAILABLE: Scott McTominay (back from suspension)




RULED OUT: Alexander Isak (thigh), Allan Saint-Maximin (hamstring), Emil Krafth (knee), Karl Darlow (ankle), Matt Ritchie (calf)


AVAILABLE: Jonjo Shelvey (hamstring), Fabian Schar (foot)


“We don’t think we’ll see Alex [Isak] back before the World Cup. Unfortunately, he’s had a setback on his thigh. Maxi’s [Saint-Maximin] had a very, very minor irritation to his hamstring but it’s the third time that has happened so, although it is a very minor injury, because of the reoccurrence we might have to be very careful with his timescales, but we hope to see him before the World Cup break. – Eddie Howe




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


MIGHT PLAY: Serge Aurier (muscle), Renan Lodi (ankle), Lewis O’Brien (illness)


“[He] has had a bit of an accelerated programme since he came in. He played in the Leicester and Villa games. It has all happened a bit quick and, when you do that, you do tend to pick up some niggles. It’s a muscle injury.” – Steve Cooper on Serge Aurier




RULED OUT: Armel Bella-Kotchap (shoulder), Romeo Lavia (muscle), Tino Livramento (knee)


MIGHT PLAY: Theo Walcott (illness), Ibrahima Diallo (illness)


AVAILABLE: Moussa Djenepo (illness)


“We had only Theo [Walcott] out for the weekend because he was getting ill suddenly on Sunday morning. Should come in today and we’ll see how it is. He was maybe starting at the weekend and suddenly dropped out in the morning.” – Ralph Hasenhuttl




RULED OUT: Emerson Royal (suspended), Richarlison (calf)


MIGHT PLAY: Dejan Kulusevski (hamstring)


“You know the injury about Richarlison. He is doing a scan, an MRI and then we’ll see how long he needs to recover. But for sure, against United, he is not available. Kulusevski is working. We’ll see. We have to go day-by-day with him. The medical department are working a lot to try to recover him but we don’t know about the game against Manchester United.” – Antonio Conte




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


MIGHT PLAY: Kurt Zouma (illness), Craig Dawson (dead leg)


“Kurt [Zouma] has done a little bit of training but we don’t know if he’ll be right yet. Craig Dawson we’re not sure about, so not much change from where we were on Sunday. Maxi [Cornet] will probably start training this week but he’s not quite there yet.” – David Moyes




RULED OUT: Pedro Neto (ankle), Sasa Kalajdzic (knee), Raul Jimenez (groin), Chiquinho (knee)


MIGHT PLAY: Toti Gomes (unspecified)


AVAILABLE: Nathan Collins (back from suspension)
