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


MIGHT PLAY: Jonny Evans (calf)


AVAILABLE: Wilfried Ndidi (hamstring)


“In terms of the squad, we’ll monitor Jonny Evans over the next few days, see how Jonny is. Wilf Ndidi has been back training with the squad. The most important thing is that [Ndidi] is back training in the squad. He’s looked fine with the players. I think availability is more important, and thankfully he’s available.” – Brendan Rodgers

MIGHT PLAY: Jordan Henderson (knee)

Naby [Ketia] not yet. Joel [Matip] will not be back, is here training but rehab. You don’t have to ask about Diogo [Jota] or Luis [Diaz] for a while.” – Jurgen Klopp




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


MIGHT PLAY: Erling Haaland (foot)

MIGHT PLAY: Aaron Wan-Bissaka (knock)

MIGHT PLAY: Allan Saint-Maximin (hamstring)


AVAILABLE: Elliot Anderson (knock)


There’s a chance. We’re going to see how training goes today. He’s made really good progress. I’m very pleased with how he’s attacked his rehab, and the work he’s put in, so there’s an opportunity, hopefully, to get Maxi fit and available. – Eddie Howe on Allan Saint-Maximin




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


MIGHT PLAY: Lewis O’Brien (illness)


“The boys who are out a little while are still going through the process but no new news. Renan (Lodi) just about made the bench versus Liverpool and came on, so that was a plus.

Romeo [Lavia] is today first time in the session and it was a pleasure to see him playing. Would like to have him in the squad at the weekend but I think I don’t have the OK so far from the physios, so we have to wait. With Armel [Bella-Kotchap], it also looks good. It can be next week that he starts to train with the team. With Kyle [Walker-Peters] it’s not that good, I think. – Ralph Hasenhuttl




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


MIGHT PLAY: Cristian Romero (match fitness)


“Now we have to manage him very well because he played and finished the game with great will and great desire. For this reason, it’s right also to say thanks to him and also Pierre [Hojbjerg]. I think Cuti [Romero] needed to recover better but Pierre is OK, 100%. Cuti is OK but we have another important game on Tuesday and for this reason, we try to make the best decision for him.” – Antonio Conte on Cristian Romero
