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


AVAILABLE: Conor Gallagher (illness)


“He’s in a brace for four weeks, which is the first thing, to stabilise the knee and then it’s rehab, so that will take, as we said, around eight weeks, we think. So that’s the latest.” – Graham Potter on Reece James

AVAILABLE: Will Hughes (illness)

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: Darwin Nunez (knock)


“He is one of the cases where we need to have a look because he was not injured, but he felt something and I don’t know if he feels that still today and what the medical department tells me then, we have to see.” – Jurgen Klopp on Darwin Nunez


“No injuries but two tough games in short succession and now a next one coming up, so we need to have a closer look at who we can start again. But it’s really close, we have only this session this afternoon, yesterday was recovery for the boys who played the other night and today will be now the only session we have. – Jurgen Klopp on probable rotation




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


AVAILABLE: John Stones (hamstring)


“I didn’t speak with the doctors about Kyle [Walker] but hopefully it can happen, if he’s selected he can go to the World Cup. John [Stones] is training the last two days with us, tomorrow is in the list. Kalvin [Phillips] is incredible, much better. They are recovering really well.” – Pep Guardiola




RULED OUT: Cristiano Ronaldo (disciplinary reasons), Anthony Martial (back), Brandon Williams (unspecified), Donny van de Beek (knock)


MIGHT PLAY: Harry Maguire (hamstring), Aaron Wan-Bissaka (knock)


“This is the second time, there are consequences. We miss him tomorrow.” – Erik ten Hag on Cristiano Ronaldo




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


MIGHT PLAY: Joelinton (knee), Javier Manquillo (ankle)


He had a knock to the side of his knee. It was quite an unusual one, because we thought it was a knock, and hopefully he could run it off. Joe’s the type of lad that’s very, very mentally strong, and can play with lots of different things, so when he said he had to come off at half-time, we knew, potentially, there was an issue there. We’re hopeful it’s not serious. But, at this moment in time, it’s still slightly unclear. – Eddie Howe on Joelinton




RULED OUT: Harry Toffolo (hamstring), Lewis O’Brien (illness), Omar Richards (leg), Moussa Niakhate (thigh), Jack Colback (back)


MIGHT PLAY: Renan Lodi (ankle)


“Harry [Toffolo] is injured. He picked up a hamstring injury, unfortunately, so that will rule him out for a little while.

“Lewis [O’Brien] still hasn’t recovered from his illness. He is still poorly. We are helping as much as we can with his recovery and really trying to get to the bottom of it. He’s taken a bit of a hit with it, unfortunately.” – Steve Cooper




RULED OUT: Kyle Walker-Peters (hamstring), Armel Bella-Kotchap (shoulder), Ainsley Maitland-Niles (unable to face parent club), Tino Livramento (knee)


MIGHT PLAY: Romeo Lavia (match fitness)


“We have another big injury that costs us a player for the long-term, Kyle Walker-Peters. Hamstring injury. We will see how long. There’s a lot of blood, if there’s a tear involved we don’t know it yet. It was a long step he made to the ball, he tried to make the save and this was the moment the injury happened.

“[Armel Bella-Kotchap] is still out and will take a little bit [of time]. We’re not so sure how long. Roméo [Lavia] is back in training but after such a long time out it will take time for him to be match fit.” – Ralph Hasenhuttl




RULED OUT: Richarlison (calf), Dejan Kulusevski (hamstring)


AVAILABLE: Emerson Royal (back from suspension)


“I think we have to wait a bit of time to see him [Kulusevski] with us; the same for Richarlison. His recovery was going well and then one day the situation worsened. When this happens you have to restart. You need time, you need time.  – Antonio Conte




RULED OUT: Lucas Paqueta (shoulder), Nayef Aguerd (ankle)


MIGHT PLAY: Craig Dawson (dead leg), Maxwel Cornet (calf)


“We don’t think it is as serious as first feared, but the injury is not one that is normal for football players, so we need to treat it accordingly.” – David Moyes on Lucas Paqueta




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


MIGHT PLAY: Toti Gomes (unspecified)


AVAILABLE: Rayan Ait-Nouri (illness)
