RULED OUT: Dominic Calvert-Lewin (various), Andros Townsend (knee), Ben Godfrey (match fitness)


AVAILABLE: Yerry Mina (calf), Amadou Onana (ankle), Idrissa Gueye (quadriceps)


“The hamstring is a small injury. The shoulder was a whack he took against Newcastle – he dislocated it, then it went back in – and then had a recurrence against Fulham. It’s been strapped up a lot. That’s something that was looked at by a specialist yesterday and doesn’t need any surgery or anything like that. 

“Then he still has the knee [problem], so he’s been getting through with some issues. The knee is probably the most prominent injury that we want to get right.” – Frank Lampard on Dominic Calvert-Lewin




RULED OUT: Aleksandar Mitrovic (ankle), Harrison Reed (suspended), Kenny Tete (suspended), Neeskens Kebano (Achilles), Manor Solomon (knee)


AVAILABLE: Bobby DeCordova-Reid (back from suspension)


Mitrovic will not play on Sunday.” – Marco Silva




RULED OUT: Patrick Bamford (hip), Luis Sinisterra (foot), Mateusz Klich (knock), Stuart Dallas (leg), Adam Forshaw (ankle)


MIGHT PLAY: Jack Harrison (muscle), Joe Gelhardt (knee)


Patrick [Bamford] is out for this match. He still hasn’t recovered. Klichy took a knee-to-knee knock in the match against Wolves and he’ll be out. And then Jack Harrison is a little bit questionable with a muscle strain but we’re hopeful that in the next 24 hours he can recover and be available for tomorrow as well. – Jesse Marsch




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


MIGHT PLAY: Caglar Soyuncu (hamstring)


AVAILABLE: Jonny Evans (calf)


He’s ruptured his Achilles. It’s a huge disappointment to us all after coming back from another injury. He’ll have his operation and that will probably put him out for most of the season. – Brendan Rodgers on James Justin




RULED OUT: Diogo Jota (calf), Luis Diaz (knee), Joel Matip (calf), Arthur Melo (muscle), Naby Keita (muscle)


AVAILABLE: James Milner (concussion)


Nobody is out from the players we had available for midweek or for the last [league] game.

Millie [Milner] is back in training today. Naby [Keita] is out and running, Lucho [Diaz] is back on the pitch and running. Joel [Matip] trained with us, Joel was in three-quarters of the whole session, the last bit he didn’t do. He would be available but has only trained once with the team. – Jurgen Klopp




RULED OUT: Kyle Walker (groin)


“We’ll see, we’ll see, we have training this afternoon, we’ll see.” – Pep Guardiola on Erling Haaland’s chances of starting




RULED OUT: Diogo Dalot (suspended), Raphael Varane (hamstring), Brandon Williams (unspecified)


MIGHT PLAY: Cristiano Ronaldo (illness), Antony (knock), Jadon Sancho (illness)


AVAILABLE: Bruno Fernandes (back from suspension)


“I can’t guarantee that now but today he was ill, so he can recover from that. It’s not a really serious illness that takes days or weeks. So, I think it’s possible that he’s available for Sunday.” – Erik ten Hag on Cristiano Ronaldo




RULED OUT: Alexander Isak (thigh), Emil Krafth (knee), Matt Ritchie (calf), Paul Dummett (calf)


MIGHT PLAY: Callum Wilson (illness), Ryan Fraser (calf)


AVAILABLE: Joelinton (back from suspension)


We’ll wait and see, I think. He’s been training separately from the group this week. He had an illness, so he’s been away from the group. He’s been working well but I need to make a decision whether he’s fit enough to play. – Eddie Howe on Callum Wilson




RULED OUT: Orel Mangale (suspended), Harry Toffolo (hamstring), Giulian Biancone (knee), Omar Richards (leg), Moussa Niakhate (thigh)


MIGHT PLAY: Scott McKenna (knock), Cheikhou Kouyate (knock)


AVAILABLE: Jack Colback (back)


A couple of boys missed out [in midweek] through knocks – Scott McKenna and Cheikhou [Kouyate]. We will see how they are going into the weekend. We also picked up a suspension with Orel [Mangala], so he won’t be available.” – Steve Cooper




RULED OUT: Kyle Walker-Peters (hamstring), Tino Livramento (knee)


MIGHT PLAY: Juan Larios (knock)




RULED OUT: Son Heung-min (facial injury), Ryan Sessegnon (muscle)
