2022/23 Premier League Press Conferences – GW35



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


MIGHT PLAY: Gabriel (unspecified)


We will see tomorrow how he is but yeah he could not finish the game, so that was obviously a big sign for us. – Mikel Arteta on Gabriel




MIGHT PLAY: Matty Cash (calf), Leon Bailey (hamstring), Philippe Coutinho (hamstring), Boubacar Kamara (foot)




RULED OUT: Marcus Tavernier (hamstring), Kieffer Moore (concussion), Chris Mepham (hamstring), Ryan Fredericks (calf), Hamed Traore (foot), Junior Stanislas (knock)


“With Marcus [Tavernier], we’re still not clear on how long it will be. Kieffer Moore isn’t available for tomorrow with his concussion. He’s been able to do some training, within what’s allowed.” – Gary O’Neil




RULED OUT: Christian Norgaard (Achilles), Pontus Jansson (hamstring), Keane Lewis-Potter (knee), Thomas Strakosha (calf)


AVAILABLE: Kristoffer Ajer (calf)


The last game we played against Nottingham Forest, everyone from that game will be available again. Pontus [Jansson] is out, [Thomas] Strakosha is out and [Christian] Norgaard will be out. But Kristoffer Ajer will be available for selection. – Thomas Frank




RULED OUT: Adam Lallana (muscle), Tariq Lamptey (knee), Jeremy Sarmiento (foot), Jakub Moder (knee)


MIGHT PLAY: Pascal Gross (muscle), Joel Veltman (muscle), Evan Ferguson (foot)


I think Joel Veltman has a not big, but not a small injury. I think he can’t play on Monday. With Pascal Gross we will see the day before the game. I didn’t want to take any risks with him, he is too important for us. With Evan [Ferguson], I hope he is okay for Monday but I don’t know and I don’t want to take risks with the players. – Roberto De Zerbi




RULED OUT: Reece James (hamstring), Mason Mount (pelvic), Marc Cucurella (thigh), Kalidou Koulibaly (hamstring), Marcus Bettinelli (knock), Armando Broja (ACL)




RULED OUT: James Tomkins (calf), Nathan Ferguson (muscle), James McArthur (unspecified)


MIGHT PLAY: Naououri Ahamada (knock)


AVAILABLE: Nathaniel Clyne (knee)


He’s been back in training, which is good news for us. He’ll be available to play at the weekend. – Roy Hodgson on Nathaniel Clyne




RULED OUT: Seamus Coleman (knee), Ben Godfrey (groin), Ruben Vinagre (Achilles), Andros Townsend (knee)


AVAILABLE: Amadou Onana (illness)


It’s still a ligament injury that needs sorting out but it’s not his ACL, which everyone feared. That’s good news. I doubt [he’ll feature again this season], I don’t think so, no.” – Sean Dyche




RULED OUT: Aleksandar Mitrovic (suspended), Andreas Pereira (ankle), Tim Ream (arm)




RULED OUT: Luis Sinisterra (ankle), Tyler Adams (hamstring), Liam Cooper (glute), Stuart Dallas (leg)


That, for me, is probably one of the biggest decisions I have to make today. – Sam Allardyce on who will start in goal




RULED OUT: Kelechi Iheanacho (groin), James Justin (Achilles), Jannik Vestergaard (calf), Sammy Braybrooke (knee)


MIGHT PLAY: Jonny Evans (virus), Ricardo Pereira (hamstring), Ryan Bertrand (match fitness)


Kel [Iheanacho] has responded to treatment. He’s not back obviously for the weekend but we may get him back for the last two games – which we weren’t hopeful of getting when he first sustained the injury. Other than that, everyone came through the [Everton] game okay.

“Ricky [Pereira] has been training with us. He is due to train on Saturday. He part-trained yesterday (Wednesday). If he comes through Saturday, I’m sure he’ll put himself up for selection for Monday.” – Dean Smith




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


MIGHT PLAY: Diogo Jota (rib/back), Jordan Henderson (knock)


Diogo [Jota] has his back issue, the bruised rib, he could train yesterday but he didn’t do a lot, to be honest. He was not really in danger yesterday with any kind of contact or stuff like this. We’ll have to see there. – Jurgen Klopp




MIGHT PLAY: Kevin De Bruyne (knock)


“He trained yesterday, he trained good. Today we are going to train and we are going to decide after training. If he’s fit, he can play.” – Pep Guardiola on Kevin De Bruyne


“He’s ready to play like he was against West Ham. Tomorrow we will decide.” – Pep Guardiola on whether Ederson will start




RULED OUT: Lisandro Martinez (foot), Raphael Varane (foot), Donny van de Beek (knee), Scott McTominay (knock), Tom Heaton (ankle)


MIGHT PLAY: Alejandro Garnacho (ankle)


I think it will be the same squad. Maybe one player [to add]: Garnacho. I have to see. Maybe he can be involved but we will have to see how the progress can go. – Erik ten Hag




RULED OUT: Jamaal Lascelles (calf), Emil Krafth (knee)


MIGHT PLAY: Allan Saint-Maximin (hamstring), Sean Longstaff (foot)


It’s not the first time the temptation has been there to play them together. When you’re analysing the next game, you have to analyse the opponents, analyse yourselves and pick the best team to try and win the game. That won’t be any different this weekend.

“I’ve talked about lots of different scenarios but, ultimately, my end decision has to be what does the team need rather than what Alex or Callum need. It’s up to me to make the right call.” – Eddie Howe on pairing Alexander Isak with Callum Wilson




RULED OUT: Neco Williams (jaw), Chris Wood (thigh), Dean Henderson (thigh), Scott McKenna (collarbone), Willy Boly (hamstring), Giulian Biancone (knee), Omar Richards (leg), Jack Colback (concussion)

AVAILABLE: Paul Onuachu (knee)




RULED OUT: Hugo Lloris (muscle), Emerson Royal (knee), Rodrigo Bentancur (knee), Yves Bissouma (ankle), Ryan Sessegnon (hamstring)


Hugo [Lloris] is out for the season. We had the results back. Obviously disappointing. Ryan [Sessegnon] had a significant injury and he won’t feature for the rest of the season. Emerson [Royal] is day-by-day now and hopefully he can help us.” – Ryan Mason




RULED OUT: Kurt Zouma (ankle), Gianluca Scamacca (knee), Vladimir Coufal (hamstring)


AVAILABLE: Declan Rice (illness), Nayef Aguerd (illness), Tomas Soucek (illness)




RULED OUT: Chiquinho (knee), Sasa Kalajdzic (knee)


MIGHT PLAY: Nelson Semedo (knee)


He [Semedo] has had a knee problem, it’s a very dangerous problem, and that’s why he’s rested the two days, and now he’s started working with the group. We’re going to see if he’s fit or not fit for the next match. – Julen Lopetegui
