2022/23 Premier League Press Conferences – GW32



RULED OUT: William Saliba (back), Mohamed Elneny (knee), Takehiro Tomiyasu (knee)


MIGHT PLAY: Oleksandr Zinchenko (groin)


Regarding William [Saliba], we still have to wait a little bit more. He’s not progressing as quickly as we hoped. – Mikel Arteta


“We’ll see about that one as well, it’s not certain. It’s a muscular injury and it needs some time to heal and we’re not there yet.” – Mikel Arteta on Oleksandr Zinchenko




RULED OUT: Matty Cash (calf), Leon Bailey (hamstring), Philippe Coutinho (hamstring), Boubacar Kamara (foot)




RULED OUT: Ryan Fredericks (calf), Hamed Traore (foot), Junior Stanislas (knock)


MIGHT PLAY: Matias Vina (back)




RULED OUT: Pontus Jansson (hamstring), Kristoffer Ajer (calf), Keane Lewis-Potter (knee)




RULED OUT: Wilfried Zaha (groin), Vicente Guaita (calf), Nathaniel Clyne (knee)




RULED OUT: Abdoulaye Doucoure (suspension), Seamus Coleman (hamstring), Ruben Vinagre (Achilles), Andros Townsend (knee)


MIGHT PLAY: Dominic Calvert-Lewin (hamstring), Amadou Onana (groin)


He’ll certainly be in the thinking, without a doubt. The game the other day was all about him, really, we got some minutes into other players but it was basically for the end of a rehab period. We’re very pleased he came through that and he felt good.

“It was my decision to take him off, there was no fatigue or anything, I just thought it was common sense him coming through 70-odd minutes. – Sean Dyche on Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s appearance in a behind-closed-doors friendly




RULED OUT: Aleksandar Mitrovic (suspended), Daniel James (ineligible to face parent club), Layvin Kurzawa (knee)


MIGHT PLAY: Neeskens Kebano (Achilles)




RULED OUT: Tyler Adams (hamstring), Stuart Dallas (leg)


MIGHT PLAY: Patrick Bamford (calf)


We have to wait until the end. He’s training but, in this moment, I don’t know if he will be ready. – Javi Gracia on Patrick Bamford




RULED OUT: Harvey Barnes (hamstring), Ricardo Pereira (hamstring), James Justin (Achilles), Jannik Vestergaard (calf), Sammy Braybrooke (knee)


MIGHT PLAY: Ryan Bertrand (match fitness)


Harvey [Barnes] has been out on the grass, but he’s not actually trained with us yet. I think it would be a risk to put him in for Saturday. We could lose him then for the six games and I’ve got to balance that risk. I know he’ll start training on Sunday and be ready for Tuesday. – Dean Smith




RULED OUT: Roberto Firmino (muscle), Naby Keita (muscle), Stefan Bajcetic (thigh), Calvin Ramsay (knee)


Unfortunately, Bobby [Firmino] picked up a muscle issue, a little bit. We will see how long that takes. It’s not too serious but definitely out for tomorrow. Next week we have two more games, I would say they are impossible as well. Then we will see, then we will take it day by day. – Jurgen Klopp




RULED OUT: Allan Saint-Maximin (hamstring), Emil Krafth (knee)


There’s not been a setback, it’s taken a little bit longer than we initially thought. No major setback, no, but with hamstring injuries we have to be careful. – Eddie Howe on Allan Saint-Maximin




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


MIGHT PLAY: Ryan Yates (shoulder), Serge Aurier (knock), Cheikhou Kouyate (hamstring), Gustavo Scarpa (knee), Jack Colback (concussion)




RULED OUT: Ainsley Maitland-Niles (ineligible to face parent club), Che Adams (calf), Mohammed Salisu (hip), Tino Livramento (match fitness), Juan Larios (muscle)


AVAILABLE: Mislav Orsic (hip)


“Ché Adams is still out with a calf injury, Mohammed Salisu is still out with his pubic bone problem.

“Tino [Livramento] played 45 minutes for the B team last week as part of his recovery but still needs to test a little bit more and Juan Larios is still out with a long-term injury with his hamstring. The one that has recovered is Mislav Oršić.” – Ruben Selles




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


MIGHT PLAY: Ben Davies (hamstring), Clement Lenglet (muscle)




RULED OUT: Gianluca Scamacca (knee)
