MIGHT PLAY: William Saliba (back), Eddie Nketiah (ankle)

We have some hope with one of them, tomorrow maybe he’s able to train but we’ll have to see. I’m not going to tell you! – Mikel Arteta




RULED OUT: Matty Cash (calf), Philippe Coutinho (hamstring), Boubacar Kamara (ankle)

“Moises [Caicedo] and Alexis [Mac Allister] can play tomorrow without problem and I’m really happy. It’s good news for us.” – Roberto De Zerbi




RULED OUT: Thiago Silva (knee), Cesar Azpilicueta (head), Armando Broja (ACL)


Mason [Mount], I know he’s had a few slight injury problems, so I understand that’s something important to speak to him [about] and find out where he’s at, but I know what I’ll get from Mason. I just want to see him perform on the pitch. We have got a good relationship, so we’ll talk a lot. I think he’s a huge player for Chelsea. – Frank Lampard




RULED OUT: Wilfried Zaha (groin), Vicente Guaita (calf), Chris Richards (knock), Nathan Ferguson (knock)


“It’s a groin strain, there’s no question about that. He’s having treatment, but I’m hopeful that sometime towards the end of the month we’ll be able to welcome him back. The doctors and physios won’t put a timescale on it.” – Roy Hodgson on Wilfried Zaha




RULED OUT: Abdoulaye Doucoure (suspension), Andros Townsend (knee), Dominic Calvert-Lewin (hamstring)


MIGHT PLAY: Ruben Vinagre (Achilles)


Ruben [Vinagre] missed out with a tight Achilles but he’s back on the grass training. Dom [Calvert-Lewin] continues his recovery, obviously, and Andros [Townsend], a bit more distantly. Pretty good overall and some players carrying knocks and bruises but nothing too serious. – Sean Dyche




RULED OUT: Aleksandar Mitrovic (suspended), Neeskens Kebano (Achilles), Layvin Kurzawa (knee)


AVAILABLE: Willian (back from suspension)




RULED OUT: Max Wober (hamstring), Tyler Adams (hamstring), Stuart Dallas (leg), Adam Forshaw (hip)


We played two days ago and we don’t have any news about injured players. We’ll have the same players I had for the last game. Willy [Gnonto] was on the bench, was available. He didn’t play but was on the bench.” – Javi Gracia




RULED OUT: Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall (suspension), Youri Tielemans (ankle), James Justin (Achilles), Sammy Braybrooke (knee)


MIGHT PLAY: Ryan Bertrand (match fitness), Jonny Evans (muscle)


There’s no new injuries from Tuesday, so there’s nothing report on that. Jonny [Evans] has trained this morning with the group and I expect Youri [Tielemans] to be back with the group next Tuesday to partake in some of that session. – caretaker boss Adam Sadler




RULED OUT: Luis Diaz (knee), Naby Keita (muscle), Stefan Bajcetic (thigh), Calvin Ramsay (knee)


MIGHT PLAY: Thiago Alcantara (hip)


AVAILABLE: Virgil van Dijk (illness)


“We had a game against City, which was an influence, physically and performance-wise, then we have a game three days later, so it’s both.” – Jurgen Klopp on whether his changes at Chelsea were down to performance or fitness


Virgil [van Dijk] was completely normal, back in training. Luis [Diaz] and Thiago [Alcantara] training completely normal. The plan with Luis is that he will be available 100% for Leeds. It looks good, everything is fine, but it was a long, long injury and so we have to be careful. We will probably not involve him on Sunday. – Jurgen Klopp




RULED OUT: Phil Foden (appendix)


AVAILABLE: Erling Haaland (groin)


He trained the last two days really good, so he will be ready. – Pep Guardiola on Erling Haaland




RULED OUT: Casemiro (suspended), Luke Shaw (hamstring), Donny van de Beek (knee), Alejandro Garnacho (ankle), Tom Heaton (ankle)


AVAILABLE: Christian Eriksen (ankle)


Luke Shaw is not available for tomorrow. We have to see how it progresses in the coming week. The good news is Christian Eriksen is back in training and he will be back tomorrow in the squad.” – Erik ten Hag




RULED OUT: Miguel Almiron (thigh), Emil Krafth (knee)


Now I’ve got two outstanding players, and I’ll try to make the right call for the next game. Callum [Wilson] and Alex [Isak] can play together, as well, so it’s not just a case of one or the other. I do see a time and a place where they’ll be on the pitch at the same time.” – Eddie Howe




RULED OUT: Chris Wood (thigh), Dean Henderson (thigh), Willy Boly (hamstring), Giulian Biancone (knee), Omar Richards (leg)


MIGHT PLAY: Emmanuel Dennis (knock), Ryan Yates (shoulder), Jesse Lingard (knee), Scott McKenna (hamstring), Serge Aurier (knock)


Emmanuel Dennis came off the other night and it’s something we’re going to look at in regards to Saturday. We’re continuing to manage Jesse [Lingard] who has had some niggles with his Achilles and his knee.

Yatesy has had some illness and had problems with his shoulder, so that’s one we’re having to look at on a daily basis in regards to Saturday. Scott McKenna is back in training which is a positive and Dean Henderson is probably going to be back in training next week.” – Steve Cooper




RULED OUT: Che Adams (calf), Mohammed Salisu (knock), Tino Livramento (knee), Juan Larios (muscle)


MIGHT PLAY: Armel Bella-Kotchap (shoulder)


Unfortunately, Salisu and Che [Adams] will not make it for the game. After the situation in the last week, they have not been able to join us in training. Armel [Bella-Kotchap] is still a question mark for us. – Ruben Selles




RULED OUT: Lucas Moura (suspended), Emerson Royal (knee), Rodrigo Bentancur (knee), Yves Bissouma (ankle), Ryan Sessegnon (hamstring), Ben Davies (hamstring)


MIGHT PLAY: Richarlison (calf)


We are going well with Ben Davies with the plan but with Ben, we have to wait a bit of time. [Richarlison] started to train on the pitch. He is going well and, for the next game, he could be available.” – Cristian Stellini

RULED OUT: Ruben Neves (suspended), Jonny (suspended), Chiquinho (knee), Sasa Kalajdzic (knee)
