“We’ve got Anthony [Gordon] and Yerry [Mina] who are not feeling well, so we’ll have to see how they are the next two days. We’ll just have to manage the tiredness factor in the next two days because there was a big output, 100-odd minutes of work off the ball can be tough.” – Frank Lampard




RULED OUT: Neeskens Kebano (Achilles), Manor Solomon (knee), Layvin Kurzawa (muscle)




RULED OUT: Luis Sinisterra (foot), Stuart Dallas (leg), Archie Gray (ankle), Patrick Bamford (groin)


“Probably not in training until next week, hopefully Sunday or Monday. We know that Patrick [Bamford] can score goals in bunches, he’s proven that. I tell you, he hasn’t been at 100 per cent since I’ve been here. He just hasn’t. Even that being said, he’s created a tonne of chances and it’s unfortunate that some of them haven’t fallen the way that he’s wanted.

“We’re hopeful that this diagnosis and this surgery can really be kind of a big part of the physical equation and solution for what’s necessary for Patrick. His attitude has been good he’s doing everything he can and again, hopefully we get him going next week.” – Jesse Marsch

MIGHT PLAY: Patson Daka (hamstring)


“He has had good news from the scan, which is positive for us. The medical team will work with him over the course of the next seven-to-ten days to build him up. Hopefully we will get no reaction from that. Then if that’s the case, he can then re-join our training group. We have to be mindful as well that it’s been eight weeks or so since he played a game.” – Brendan Rodgers on James Maddison

RULED OUT: Ruben Dias (hamstring)


MIGHT PLAY: Aymeric Laporte (back)


“Sometimes I pick them for the body language, for how happy they look and how they are there. This is one of my main decisions when I choose the line-up. With the skills I know how good they are, and they know what we want to do. But the body language depends on them and sometimes they are not good.” – Pep Guardiola




RULED OUT: Jadon Sancho (fitness)


MIGHT PLAY: Diogo Dalot (hamstring), Scott McTominay (illness)


AVAILABLE: Lisandro Martinez (international duty)


“We have to see. Both [Martinez and McTominay] were training (Friday) and (Saturday). I’m quite optimistic that they can both return to the squad.

“Diogo Dalot also made good progress. We don’t want to take risks with anyone because we know there are many games to come and we need a full squad to cover all the games.” – Erik ten Hag




RULED OUT: Alexander Isak (thigh), Jonjo Shelvey (calf), Matt Targett (heel), Emil Krafth (knee), Paul Dummett (calf)


“Matt [Targett] has a heel problem. He’s been managing it for a couple of months and it’s got to the point where it’s too painful for him to carry on. I’m not 100 per cent sure how long at the moment.” – Eddie Howe




RULED OUT: Jesse Lingard (hamstring), Giulian Biancone (knee), Omar Richards (leg), Moussa Niakhate (thigh), Cheikhou Kouyate (thigh)
