RULED OUT: Gabriel Jesus (knee), Reiss Nelson (muscle)


MIGHT PLAY: William Saliba (international duty), Takehiro Tomiyasu (hamstring), Emile Smith Rowe (groin), Oleksandr Zinchenko (muscle)


“Let’s see – that depends on how he comes back. We have the data of what he’s done in training and in terms of the actual minutes. He didn’t participate much but it was a huge experience for him as well. When he gets back, we’ll make the decision. – Mikel Arteta on William Saliba returning from World Cup duty




RULED OUT: Emiliano Martinez (international duty), Diego Carlos (Achilles), Jacob Ramsey (hamstring)


MIGHT PLAY: Philippe Coutinho (muscle), Robin Olsen (knock)


“The idea is to start with Olsen, he is here to replace Emiliano [Martinez] or to compete with him. He has a small problem, but I think he is going to train tomorrow as normal and if nothing changes, he is going to be ready on Monday.” – Unai Emery

RULED OUT: Conor Coady (unable to face parent club), Andros Townsend (knee), James Garner (back)


MIGHT PLAY: Dominic Calvert-Lewin (match fitness)


“Dominic [Calvert-Lewin], it’s gonna be tight; he’s going to be training over the next couple of days. We’re trying to push him for match fitness – the injury feels good – which is the best news. The last thing we want to do is go too soon. So that’s the question mark.” – Frank Lampard




RULED OUT: Neeskens Kebano (Achilles)


MIGHT PLAY: Aleksandar Mitrovic (foot), Manor Solomon (knee), Layvin Kurzawa (muscle), Antonee Robinson (foot)


AVAILABLE: Harrison Reed (back from suspension), Kenny Tete (back from suspension)


You are trying to get him in his best physical condition again to see if he’s fit or not for Crystal Palace. If not for Crystal Palace will be for the next one, let’s hope. – Marco Silva

MIGHT PLAY: Rodrigo (hamstring), Jack Harrison (muscle), Liam Cooper (calf), Illan Meslier (illness), Mateusz Klich (illness), Patrick Bamford (groin), Crysencio Summerville (foot)


So, Klichy [Klich] was sick, we had a few other guys sick the night before the day of the match.

“Rodrigo was scheduled to play in the [Monaco] match up until the afternoon, and then we just felt like he was feeling a little bit of a tightness in his hamstring.

“Luis Sinisterra is making great progress. On track, but cautious. We’re hopeful within a couple of weeks he’ll be back in training.” – Jesse Marsch

MIGHT PLAY: Trent Alexander-Arnold (illness)


AVAILABLE: Joel Matip (calf)


Millie [Milner] didn’t get better since [last night], he will be out for a couple of games. Same for Bobby [Firmino]. Bobby is already on the better side of it, it’s only a few days ago but it’s not a major thing. We’ll look day by day with him.

Trent [Alexander-Arnold] hopefully will be better, wasn’t part of the full session but of parts, let’s see how that develops till tomorrow. – Jurgen Klopp




RULED OUT: Ruben Dias (hamstring), Kalvin Phillips (match fitness), Julian Alvarez (international duty)


“Ruben Dias is injured and Kalvin Phillips is not fit.

“He’s doing well. We’re pleased with him. Is he going to make the next couple of Premier League games? At this moment in time, I’m not sure. Probably not.

MIGHT PLAY: Wayne Hennessey (knock), Morgan Gibbs-White (knock), Serge Aurier (calf)


We hope [Hennessey will be fit]. He picked up a kick on his return to training after the World Cup and it ruled him unavailable for the last couple of games, including the Valencia game, but we are hopeful he will be available.

“Similar for Morgan [Gibbs-White] and Serge [Aurier]. We are hopeful they will be available. It is still a little bit inconclusive but we will see in a few days’ time.” – Steve Cooper
