RULED OUT: Keane Lewis-Potter (knee), Thomas Strakosha (ankle)


“I think he’s very unlucky. He started the season quite well, got into the team and looked sharp. Then he got an injury, came back and was finally finding his way [again]. Unfortunately, this is part of life and part of football. He will come back stronger.” – Thomas Frank on Keane Lewis-Potter

Solly March, Levi Colwill, they are in the [squad] list. Tariq [Lamptey], I don’t know, we have to see.

“Maybe [Levi Colwill could be involved tomorrow], I want to see this morning. The last week, he played with the under-21s and I was in the stadium to watch him. He is in a good moment.” – Roberto De Zerbi


“One of the best relationships [I have] in the dressing room is with Robert Sanchez. But I have to do my work and in this moment, I prefer Jason [Steele], but only for our style of play.

“Reece [James] has been ill so hasn’t trained. He won’t make the game tomorrow. Raheem [Sterling] had a little feeling in hamstring. Tightness if anything, looking doubtful. Aubameyang slight problem with back, so again he’s looking like he will miss the game.” – Graham Potter

We are still making a decision on him being truly right to come back in. [On this weekend] it’s early yet, he’s just got on the grass with us, but he’s done a lot of rehab – the stats and facts – and the way he’s feeling is good. It’s positive signs that’s for sure. – Sean Dyche on Dominic Calvert-Lewin

“We’re hopeful [Harvey] might well make it. We won’t know until tomorrow so we’ll see where that’s at.” – Brendan Rodgers
