Happy for someone else to do the weekly round up from now on. Think it would be a good time to step aside due to circumstances. Thanks
Thanks for all you’ve done in the past, much appreciated.

Thanks for posting all that No Way Jose. Delighted my Charlie Daniels is pretty much back-he’s dropped down to 4.3 so hopefully will rise again as I think that’s a bargain!

Rico might have something to say about Daniels being a starter again, though.

Ben Dinnery: “Hugo Lloris recovers from a thigh injury but Dele Alli [hamstring], Serge Aurier and Mousa Dembele [both thigh], Christian Eriksen [abdominal] and Jan Vertonghen [hamstring] will not feature before the international break. Michel Vorm [knee] is back on the training pitches.”

Reporter: Good morning, I was going to ask you why we're here so early but that seems like a waste of a question the way things are going at the moment. Why are things not working as you would like them to work here at Manchester United? Mourinho: For many different reasons.

Can you tell us some of those reasons? Mourinho: No.

Jose, you've gone four without a win, the club's only gone five without a win once since 1999, do you accept that kind of run for a club of this size is not good enough? Mourinho: Yes, I accept.

And are the fans assured that you're doing everything that you can to try and turn this around? Mourinho does not answer.

Ilkay Gundogan will be accessed ahead of Sunday's game as he has a small problem after not training on Friday.

Kevin De Bruyne continues to train and Guardiola refused to comment on his availability.

Benjamin Mendy is also back in training and could return.

Wolves could name an unchanged line up for an eighth consecutive Premier League game with Nuno Espirito Santo reporting a clean bill of health for the trip to Selhurst Park.

That is because Helder Costa has recovered from a minor knock.

Defender James Tarkowski and midfielder Steven Defour are both doubts for Burnley's Premier League clash with Huddersfield at Turf Moor on Saturday.

Tarkowski tweaked his groin during last weekend's victory over Cardiff, while Defour finally made his comeback from a long-term knee injury in the Carabao Cup last week but has been given time off to address a personal issue.

Winger Robbie Brady has suffered a small setback in his recovery from knee and then hamstring issues and will not be available until after the international break at the earliest, while defender Ben Gibson (hernia) and goalkeeper Nick Pope (shoulder) remain sidelined.

Provisional squad: Hart, Heaton, Lowton, Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Ward, Bardsley, Long, Cork, Gudmundsson, Hendrick, Westwood, Lennon, McNeil, Vokes, Defour, Barnes, Wood, Vydra.

Eden Hazard is expected to start as Maurizio Sarri looks set to revert to his first-choice Chelsea line-up for Sunday's Premier League trip to Southampton.

The Blues made eight changes for Thursday night's Europa League win over Hungarian champions Vidi, with Hazard introduced off the substitutes' bench.

Defenders Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Antonio Rudiger and Marcos Alonso were among those afforded a rest who are set to return, while Olivier Giroud and Jorginho are also set to start.

Provisional squad: Kepa, Caballero, Rudiger, Alonso, Fabregas, Jorginho, Kante, Barkley, Hazard, Pedro, Moses, Kovacic, Giroud, Zappacosta, Willian, Cahill, Christensen, Azpilicueta, Morata, Luiz, Emerson Palmieri, Ampadu, Loftus-Cheek, Hudson-Odoi, Bulka.

Huddersfield Town

"Unfortunately we have some injury problems. Terence Kongolo will miss the game with a hamstring injury, he’ll be out for 4-5 weeks. Danny Williams and Ramadan Sobhi are still returning. Abdelhamid Sabiri has a knock on his ankle and Tommy Smith has a groin problem.

“Christopher Schindler was on the grass yesterday and will be with the team today. He will make a final test today and then we will decide if he’s available. If he is ready then he will start.” * Could be said that Schindler has given the squad a lift.

De Bryne is the big story for me today.

Pep claiming he could be available at Anfield??

Would probably be a cameo... but after that will he be a cheap Hazard alternative? Or a reachable upgrade to Maddison/Richarlison?

Can’t see his current price lasting too long if he does get his strip on this weekend.

Chelsea – vs – Manchester United



Chelsea have a few concerns following the recent internationals. Ross Barkley has a small problem – one or two days – and he should return in the Europa League. Ethan Ampadu [knee] is a little more serious, but "maybe in a couple of weeks [he can be back]." Antonio Rudiger and Mateo Kovacic are expected to recover in time for the early kick-off. The pair have been doing better in the last couple of days and Sarri thinks they will be able to play. Hudson-Odoi is also managing an injury which could side-line him in the short-term.



Ander Herrera recently returned to training and might be required to help following a number of injuries during the break. The Spaniard has travelled with the group along with Luke Shaw [ankle] and Nemanja Matic [back] who were also at risk of missing out. Diogo Dalot, Marouane Fellaini and Scott McTominay were not pictured and must be considered serious doubts. Mourinho said that everybody who is available will be selected. "Some came back [from international duty] in good condition [and] some came back with injuries, injuries that we were aware of when they happened. We also had surprises with players that we had no idea.” Jesse Lingard and Marcos Rojo have missed recent matches for United and look set to do so again.





AFC Bournemouth – vs – Southampton



Fraser faces a late fitness test. "We'll have to see with Ryan," Eddie Howe said. "He's been carrying a hamstring injury for a few weeks, we'll make a late decision on him, but he's certainly a doubt." Josh King is also struggling. "I wouldn't say he's 100%, he picked up an ankle injury and he's not trained with us. We'll see if he goes out [on Friday] and then we'll make a decision. We don't want this injury to stop his momentum with us so we're hopeful he'll be fit." King was injured playing for Norway versus Slovenia, and although he didn’t train fully, he managed 90 minutes in the Nations League on Tuesday.



Mark Hughes reveals he will have a full complement of players to choose from ahead of this weekend’s trip to Bournemouth. “Thankfully everybody seems to have come through their international games fit and well.” Alex McCarthy “had a bit of tightness in his hamstrings” but the goalkeeper has been cleared. Stuart Armstrong [calf] is available, although the midfielder has failed to nail down a regular starting berth since his arrival from Celtic.





Cardiff City – vs – Fulham



Joe Ralls is banned, and injured, after Neil Warnock confirmed he had "chipped a bone in his knee" which will keep him out for a few weeks. Aron Gunnarsson is working on the training pitches following his recovery from injury and the midfielder will be a part of the matchday squad. "Start, or on the bench, we’ll decide that tomorrow." Gary Madine [virus] "is struggling" and he could join Danny Ward on the side-lines leaving Cardiff a little lightweight in attack. Alex Smithies has recovered from a “bad shoulder injury” and he’ll be back on the bench. Bruno Manga will be assessed on his return from international duty. The defender is due back on Friday following his involvement for Gabon. Nathaniel Mendez-Laing [PCL knee] is working hard in the gym but won’t be considered just yet.



Timothy Fosu-Mensah [dislocated shoulder] has been working with the squad, but "he's still not 100 per cent." However, Jokanovic insists. "You don't need to be 100 per cent ready. You need to be strong-minded. He can be available." Joe Bryan is out of the Cardiff game having failed to recover from a hamstring strain. Tom Cairney [ankle] is also missing after suffering a setback.





Manchester City – vs – Burnley



Kevin de Bruyne will be included in the matchday 18, but Pep remained coy on whether the midfielder would start against Burnley after his lengthy absence. "I don't know if he is able to play 90 minutes. He's trained well last two weeks. He has no pain and is ready to be part of the group. He's such an important player for us." A hamstring injury will keep Ilkay Gundogan out of tomorrow's game. "He is not fit,” Guardiola said. “One week, two weeks, I am not sure [when he will return]." Fabian Delph is back in contention, but Danilo is not available after being injury playing for Brazil.



Stephen Ward had knee surgery earlier this week and won't be available for a while. "We’ll wait and see, that will be weeks rather than days." Robbie Brady and Steven Defour came through 90 minutes of a behind-closed-doors friendly unscathed, but the former is not yet ready for a first-team return. "Steven feels fine, it’s just us being careful, but he’s training really well and his eye looks in. We look forward to having him back, he’s more or less there." Nick Pope is targeting December for his comeback. Ben Gibson [hernia] will not be ready for Saturday but Sean Dyche is hopeful that the centre-back "will get some form of game next week." James Tarkowski should recover from a minor groin problem.





Newcastle United – vs – Brighton and Hove Albion



Salomon Rondón remains side-lined while Ciaran Clark has had treatment for a thigh muscle problem he picked up with Ireland. Paul Dummett trained normally after overcoming a hamstring injury. Goal scoring duo from Old Trafford - Kenedy and Muto - have worked with the group – and both are available. Jamie Sterry and Florian Lejeune continue their rehab with the physios.



Davy Propper hasn't recovered from the ankle injury he sustained during the win over West Ham. "He'll be out for a period of weeks. We're not sure on the timescale at the moment," said Chris Hughton. Pascal Gross [ankle] and Dale Stephens [hamstring] have just returned to full training. Gaetan Bong is back at the AMEX Stadium, but he didn't play on international duty because of a knee injury. "They're the three who we will make late decisions on. Apart from that, everybody's fit," which includes goalkeeper Mat Ryan who missed Australia's friendly win over Kuwait.





West Ham United – vs – Tottenham Hotspur



Manuel Pellegrini provided a positive update on Arnautovic. "Marko is okay. When he returned from internationals he worked with the squad without any problems. We must be careful about his knee." Arthur Masuaku [ankle] faces a late test. "He was with the national squad, he returned and works today – we will see what we will do this weekend." No word on Robert Snodgrass who missed out for Scotland due to a minor ankle problem. Javier Hernandez is back in contention after missing the last six weeks due to glandular fever.



Christian Eriksen [abdominal] is back in contention. “It is our decision if he will play from the start or from the bench on Saturday,” revealed Pochettino. Mousa Dembele [thigh] is pushing to be included after missing the last two games. Saturday comes too soon for Dele Alli who should rejoin the group from next week. "Maybe, 10 days or more," before we see a return to action which makes the England international an early doubt for Man City. Danny Rose is still recovering from a groin problem, but he will be back in game week ten. Jan Vertonghen remains out long-term and he is hoping to play by mid-December. Serge Aurier comes into the reckoning, but there was no mention of Victor Wanyama, who suffered a minor hamstring issue while he was away with Kenya.





Wolverhampton Wanderers – vs – Watford



Wolves could make it 9 Premier League games with the same side after Nuno Espírito Santo confirmed his international players returned unscathed. Rui Patricio is fine despite being released after a 3-2 win in Poland. Jonny Otto will be brimming with confidence after making his competitive bow for Spain and Helder Costa scored on his Portugal debut.



Gerard Deulofeu is pushing for a start following an injury hampered start to the season. “I think he is ready,” said Javi Gracia. “He has been working hard in these last two weeks and he is in his best condition. I don't know if he is able to play 90 minutes at his best level, but I think he is in good condition to play.” Marc Navarro is available for selection and he could replace Kiko Femenía after missing the Bournemouth game. The Watford boss has a couple of doubts heading into the match “but we prefer to wait to decide if the players are available.” Nathaniel Chalobah is one of those after he felt discomfort in his knee. “Yesterday he started to train but after he felt a pain in his knee. We’ll see,” if he can be involved. The Hornets need to make a minimum of two changes as Christian Kabasele and José Holebas are both suspended. Summer signing Adam Masina could make his first league start while Sebastian Prödl, Miguel Britos and Adrian Mariappa will compete against each other to play alongside Craig Cathcart in defence. “Tom Cleverley [Achilles] and Daryl Janmaat [knee] are definitely out, but the others we wait until tomorrow.”





Huddersfield Town – vs – Liverpool



David Wagner "expects" that most of Jürgen Klopp’s [injured] players [Salah / Mane / Milner / Keita / Van Dijk / Lallana] "will be on the grass on Saturday.” However, the Terriers are without three at least. "I can rule out; Tommy Smith [groin], Terence Kongolo [hamstring] and Danny Williams [knee]. There’s a question mark over Isaac Mbenza, but Ramadan Sobhi is back in training; we have to see how he looks." Philip Billing has had treatment and following his withdrawal from Denmark under-21s. "He will train with the team and hopefully he will be fine afterwards. All the signs are positive.” Danny Williams is getting closer and Aaron Mooy, who missed Australia's friendly with Kuwait because of a groin problem, is available. Christopher Schindler has recovered from a broken nose.



Jurgen Klopp confirms "a few of the boys have trained" but a decision on their involvement won't be made just yet. The Liverpool boss needs to make sure that – James Milner, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane - have no adverse reactions. Naby Keita [hamstring] will not feature but Adam Lallana is "extremely close" to a first-team return. He is unlikely to start but the injury-plagued midfielder is a "proper option again." Fabinho isn't far away from making his Premier League debut. Virgil van Dijk “has no problems” with his ribs anymore!





Everton – vs – Crystal Palace



Idrissa Gueye [ankle] is a doubt for Everton. "We have two more days to decide if he’s in a good condition," said Marco Silva. However, after Seamus Coleman, Andre Gomes [hamstring], Yerry Mina [foot] and James McCarthy [double leg fracture] all returned to full training, the Toffees are close to full strength.



Roy Hodgson is "hoping" Wilfried Zaha can rejoin the group on Saturday. "It is good news that he is close enough to be assessed. He hasn’t trained since the injury, but we are hoping he will train tomorrow, and if so, he could be available." Joel Ward is out with a muscle issue and he joins Jonathan Williams and Christian Benteke in the treatment room. Max Meyer and Alexander Sørloth are suffering with a virus. "Sometimes these things pass very quickly but they weren't able to train [Friday]." Connor Wickham impressed in a recent friendly versus Dulwich Hamlet bagging himself a goal and an assist. "We were happy and so was he [but] we still have to keep working with him to get back to Premier League level."





Arsenal – vs – Leicester City



"The [injured] players are coming back now," said Unai Emery. "Only Sokratis [ankle] had one problem, one small injury. Maybe for Monday it’s difficult [for him to play]. The others [Mesut Ozil / Danny Welbeck / Ainsley Maitland-Niles] are OK." Petr Cech [hamstring] will be monitored ahead of the game. The goalkeeper is still not training with the group, but he isn't too far away. "He is getting better from his injury." Aaron Ramsey is in contention despite contract talks stalling. Laurent Koscielny is aiming to return to full training by November and Konstantinos Mavropanos’ timeline has slipped a little and it could be another 3-4 weeks before the defender is ready.



Almost all of Leicester’s players were training at the time of Claude Puel’s press conference. However, Rachid Ghezzal, Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho weren’t due back until Friday. There are no obvious concerns and the extra recovery days will help. Winger Demarai Gray is recovering well after damaging ankle ligaments and he will start more training sessions on Monday morning. “He has made good work and it will be interesting.” Midfielder Matty James [Achilles] is working hard to get back to full fitness. “We will see when he will be available,” Puel said. “He has improved a lot in training and in the gym. I hope he can continue in this way, but I don’t know when he will be available for us.” Çağlar Söyüncü is ready to make his senior debut, although the young defender must compete with seasoned professionals Jonny Evans and Wes Morgan to partner Harry Maguire. That said, club-captain Morgan is currently serving a two-match ban.

Assuming Mane is fit (and Salah/Milner) there is no need to start with Lallana or Fabinho or any other squad player. Keita is the only regular out and he has been 'rotating' with Henderson anyway. Lallana and Fabinho are likely subs in that scenario who should get minutes if things go well. Just depends on how 'fit' people really are re whether they are considered to start.

Brighton and Hove Albion – vs – Wolverhampton Wanderers



Davy Propper [ankle] is once again missing along with team-mate Pascal Gross who many expected to return this weekend. Chris Hughton confirmed the attacking midfielder was making progress earlier this month, but it looks as though he may have suffered a minor setback. “We'll make a decision on Glenn Murray,” who has gone through the correct concussion protocol since being stretchered off and taken to hospital last weekend. Bruno Saltor is fine after shaking off a minor back issue.



Wolves travel to Brighton following a disappointing home defeat to Watford which could prompt Nuno Espírito Santo into making his first change(s) of the season. “It is over. We analyse, work on it and move to the next game,” he said. "It was not a good game; many factors can be spoken but we analyse internally and go for the next one.” The visitors can boast a clean bill of health.





Fulham – vs – AFC Bournemouth



Slavisa Jokanovic confirms that Joe Bryan is the only absentee ahead of their game with Bournemouth. The Fulham boss revealed that the left-back is taking much longer than initially anticipated to recover from a hamstring strain. Bryan limped off at Goodison Park [GW7] and it was hoped that he could return within a "few weeks," but Jokanovic admits. "He is not ready to work with us," and there is currently no timeline on his comeback. However, after two months, Tom Cairney does return, although his involvement is likely to come from the bench. "He made a few training sessions before the Everton game [September 29] and now he needs little bit time to reach his best level." Despite not being 100 per cent, Timothy Fosu-Mensah [dislocated shoulder] could come into the reckoning to sure-up the Lilywhites leaking defence which shipped four at Cardiff last time out. Calum Chambers, who was culpable for more than one of those goals, can look to make amends for his horror show after shaking off an ankle injury.



No fresh injury concerns for the Cherries. "We’re in a pretty good position," said Eddie Howe. "A couple of players have picked up little knocks but they should be okay.” Joshua King is managing a minor ankle issue, although that won’t stop him from facing Fulham.





Liverpool – vs – Cardiff City



Hamstring injuries will keep Naby Keita and Jordan Henderson out of Saturdays game. But, other than long-term absentee - Alex Oxlade Chamberlain - the rest of the first-team squad should be available for Jurgen Klopp. Sadio Mane returned in the Champions League midweek.



Harry Arter and Josh Murphy picked up knocks during the win over Fulham and the pair are considered doubts for the trip to Anfield. Neil Warnock admitted. “We’re definitely going to have to make one change,” but the Bluebirds boss did not reveal any further details. Gary Madine should be available after recovering from illness. However, Joe Ralls [knee], Lee Peltier [shoulder], Danny Ward and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing [knee] are ruled out through injury. Aron Gunnarsson isn't fully match fit following a lengthy spell on the side-lines, but he will start on Saturday. "We don’t expect him to be finishing a game [but] if he can give us another 65 to 70 minutes, I’d be delighted."





Southampton – vs – Newcastle United



Mark Hughes confirms Mario Lemina is in contention to face Newcastle after overcoming a minor problem with his left knee. "We're okay, he came off against Bournemouth and was sore early in the week. But we're pleased as it doesn't look like he's sustained any significant damage," said the Southampton boss. "It was jarring of the knee and a bit of hyper-extension. But it looks like he'll be fit as long as he doesn't have any reaction to the work we've done." Other than that, the Saints expect to have everyone else available.



Ciaran Clark comes back into contention having picked up a thigh injury during the international break. Only Cardiff have scored fewer goals away from home and the timely return of Salomon Rondon could be the boost Benitez is looking for. Jamie Sterry and Florian Lejeune are the only players currently side-lined as they continue to work towards full fitness.







Watford – vs – Huddersfield Town



Sebastian Prödl is out due to the leg injury he suffered after coming on as a substitute last weekend. The defender was replaced after only 13 minutes and looks set for another spell on the side-lines. Troy Deeney [hamstring] and Nathaniel Chalobah [knee] have trained away from the main group, but Javi Gracia will give the pair every chance to prove themselves. Christian Kabasele and Jose Holebas are expected to return to the matchday squad after missing the win at Wolves through suspension. “We have Daryl Janmaat, Tom Cleverley and Sebastian Prödl out of the squad.”



Danny Williams [knee] is the only player "sure" to miss out on Saturday after David Wagner confirmed Tommy Smith and Terence Kongolo are back training with the group. "They are ready to be in contention for the Fulham game." Rajiv van la Parra was ill on Thursday and will be checked but Collin Quaner has overcome his virus. Ramadan Sobhi is fit. "He has been in training for two weeks. He was close for the Liverpool match, but I thought it was best to give him the second week. He is ready and back in contention."





Leicester City – vs – West Ham United



Wes Morgan serves the final game of his ban while Matty James remains out. Demarai Gray has recovered from an ankle injury and stands a chance of making the game after missing the three previous matches. "I hope he can be in the squad on Saturday." Jamie Vardy hasn't been well but trained with the squad on Thursday. "He has a stomach problem. We will see if he can start this game."



"Unfortunately, we have a lot of long injuries," revealed Manuel Pellegrini on Thursday. Andriy Yarmolenko had surgery on his ruptured Achilles this week and may miss the rest of the season. His absence could open the door for Grady Diangana. "On Saturday we will see. I think he's a young player with a lot of good technical conditions. He needs to improve on other things, but he has a chance." Andy Carroll is being integrated back into first-training. "He is improving. I hope he might play after the international break." Jack Wilshere [ankle surgery] is recovering following a minor setback and Pedro Obiang is unavailable due to a "small" calf strain. "It's not serious but he needs some days to recover. He will be ready for the Carabao Cup game." Carlos Sanchez, Winston Reid and Manuel Lanzini are still out.





Burnley – vs – Chelsea



Robbie Brady comes into contention for the visit of Chelsea almost 11 months after his last competitive appearance. Aaron Lennon is currently down with a bug and faces a late fitness test. Centre-back Ben Gibson will play another behind-closed-doors game next week before being considered for a first-team return.



Despite going into the game against Manchester United [GW9] with a niggling back issue, Eden Hazard managed 90 minutes, although he looks to have exacerbated the problem. Maurizio Sarri admits he is trying to resolve the situation, but “it is not very easy” and the Belgium star has not trained with the group all week.





Crystal Palace – vs – Arsenal



No fresh concerns for Palace according to Roy Hodgson. "The only injuries we have are the ones we've had for a while.” Jonny Williams should train [on Saturday] while Pape Souaré is working his way back to full fitness. Scott Dann will play for the under-23s before stepping back into the senior squad. Christian Benteke is ruled out until 2019 but Connor Wickham is not yet ready to fill the void after missing close to two years through injury. Max Meyer and Alexander Sørloth will be considered, however, Joel Ward has a muscular strain.



Unai Emery must decide on Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac after the final session on Saturday. The pair have missed the last two games after suffering hamstring injuries on the eve of the Leicester clash. Petr Cech is back with the group and will compete with Leno for the number one jersey.





Manchester United – vs – Everton



United have seven players currently side-lined and the squad is becoming a little stretched. "At the moment, we are not in the best situation to think about resting players. The solution now is to play with the players we have,” bemoaned Jose Mourinho on Friday. Jesse Lingard [groin] "could" play after recovering from a groin injury. "He came from the World Cup with that problem. Can he help us in the next match? That's the question we have to answer tomorrow. Or if we wait and give one more week of stability to the work. So, he's almost there." Scott McTominay [knee] is another player closing in on a return and maybe considered. Diogo Dalot and Marouane Fellaini are ruled out while Mourinho admits Alexis Sanchez is "struggling" because he's injured. "He come to Chelsea to help the team. But, his physical condition was not good and then he had to stop. He was not available for Juventus and he is not available for tomorrow again."



Marco Silva confirms Everton have no injury worries ahead of Sunday. Yerry Mina was an unused substitute last time out and is likely to sit on the bench once again. Andre Gomes and Seamus Coleman came through the win over Palace unscathed following their return and James McCarthy is training normally, although he lacks match fitness.





Tottenham Hotspur – vs – Manchester City



Dele Alli [hamstring] has returned to full training, but Mauricio Pochettino remains coy on his return. "He started today with the group. Sure, we hope he will be available for Monday, but I'm not sure if we're going to put him in the squad or not." Jan Vertonghen and Danny Rose are progressing with their rehab, but neither player will feature against City.



Pep is struggling to pick his starting XI with most of his squad fit and available. "All the players want to play good, play well and be part of the team," Guardiola said. "We have a squad with huge quality and when they play, they play good, because if it doesn't happen another one can play.” Sergio Aguero is poised for a recall after being rested in the Champions League, but Ilkay Gundogan [hamstring] and Danilo [ankle] are out.

Leicester City
Puel discussed whether he or the players will be attending their owner's funeral, which starts on Saturday and could last for up to a week.

"I want to give players the opportunity to go if they want to but I don't know about the logistics. "But the players want to go and support Vichai's family, his wife and Top."

That reads as contradictory to playing at the weekend. Thai's take death and mourning very seriously as per https://www.reuters.com/article/us-thai ... SKBN1CZ0A4

Just saw this on Fantasy Football Scout's twitter: https://twitter.com/FFScout/status/1058340273565192195

Maurizio Sarri reports that he does not know yet whether Eden Hazard is fit to play for 90 minutes, but did train yesterday. He can probably play for "40 to 45 minutes".

Well that's good news...

That sounds like a start on the bench and come on if needed to me

Ben Dinnery via rotoworld.com

Cardiff City – vs – Brighton and Hove Albion
Harry Arter is ruled out of the early kick-off due to suspension. Joe Ralls has served his three-match ban, but after chipping a bone in his knee [vs Spurs] he may start the game on the bench. "He’s not been able to do any training until this week. He had a tough day [Wednesday] and we’ll see how he is." Jazz Richards fails to recover from a hamstring strain and Kenneth Zohore is sidelined with a calf injury. “We’ve only got 17 or 18 players fit at the moment.” Lee Peltier [shoulder] and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing [knee] are long-term absentees.

Pascal Gross is training with the squad, but Davy Propper is not expected to rejoin them until Monday - both players will miss out this weekend, although Chris Hughton is confident that the pair can return after the break. Alireza Jahanbakhsh has picked up a "slight" hamstring strain. "We were hopeful he would train this week, but he hasn't. So, he will probably miss out." Back-up goalkeeper David Button [knee] is also carrying a slight knock. The Brighton boss says he has no plans to rest Murray. "Glenn always trains really well - he rarely misses a session and has always been available. My feeling with him is that if he does need a rest it won't be down to his age, it might be other circumstances."

Huddersfield Town – vs – West Ham United
David Wagner looks to have a full squad at his disposal, although Danny Williams – who only returned to training on Thursday - will not be considered until after the international break having missed the previous two months with a knee problem. Eric Durm is back in contention after missing the win over Fulham due to a slight groin problem. One/two players picked up minor knocks on Monday night, but that shouldn't stop them from being available. There are no plans to rest Terence Kongolo who "looked tired" last time out. "He is a real warrior. Once he puts on the shirt on, he is a different person to what you see off the pitch.”

No fresh injury concerns for the Hammers. "We don't have any problems. Everybody who was fit last weekend is fit again. Nobody had any problems in that game." West Ham have seven players currently side-lined. Mark Noble [suspension] will be back after the break and all being well, Andy Carroll and Jack Wilshere should return to the ranks later this month.

Leicester City – vs – Burnley
Claude Puel confirms Harry Maguire "will not be available" for the visit of Burnley due to a knee injury which will also keep him of the upcoming England matches. "It will be a few weeks, we will discuss his comeback after the international games. We don’t have any other information." James Maddison [knee] is in a similar position, although his injury isn’t quite as bad. "He felt something the day after Cardiff. It's not too serious but he will not play this game.” Everyone else is available, except Daniel Amartey [ankle surgery] and Matty James [Achilles].

Jack Cork is expected to recover from the ankle injury which kept him out of the loss at West Ham. "We think he will be fine, certainly it’s looking very positive" while Phil Bardsley is likely to overcome a hip flexor problem. James Tarkowski has been managing a niggling groin issue in recent weeks and faces a late fitness test. "He is seeing the specialist [Thursday], so we have to make a call on that one.” Nick Pope [shoulder] is targeting a return in December and Stephen Ward is still recovering from knee surgery. "He will be a bit longer than a couple of weeks but is making good progress." Ben Gibson [hernia] has had another operation. “It went well, he shouldn’t be out long. He should be up and it on, and on the grass in the matter of days.”

Newcastle United – vs – AFCB Bournemouth
Rafa Benítez says that Yoshinori Mutō and Jonjo Shelvey have not trained this week and the pair are likely to miss out. Jamaal Lascelles has had a session, but the United boss admits. "It will be difficult for him," and the skipper only has a slight chance of facing Bournemouth. Ki Sung-Yeung, Ayoze Perez and Fabian Schär could benefit if all three fail to recover.

Eddie Howe is keeping his cards close to his chest. "Joshua [King] has been training this week. We'll make a late decision on him. At the moment, we're not sure if he'll play or not, so we'll have to see." King was quoted in the Norwegian press saying his chances were 50-50. Apart from that, the Cherries should be close to full strength. "I think that's pretty much it. We're looking OK as things stand."

Southampton – vs – Watford
Wesley Hoedt missed training on Thursday and the defender faces a late test. "He’s got an infection in his foot, which just needs to calm down. He’s a little bit sore," said Mark Hughes. Mario Lemina has a “little bit of tightness in his thigh,” but that shouldn’t keep him out of the game.

Javi Gracia confirms Troy Deeney is working on the pitches and the skipper "should" be in the squad after missing the last three games with a hamstring problem. “We are stronger with his comeback. He’s another option.” The Watford boss also said it was “very, very special” to have Tom Cleverley back in full training having been side-lined since January with a combination of hamstring and Achilles issues. "He is not fit, but this week he has started doing something with the team." The return of Deeney and Cleverley means that the Hornets are only missing Daryl Janmaat [knee] and Sebastian Prodl [hamstring]. “The rest of the players are available. I am happy because I like all my players to be fit and healthy. I will then decide what is the best option for the next game." Watford will be forced into at least one change from the defeat at Newcastle after Etienne Capoue picked up his fifth caution of the season. "Chalobah is one of our options, [but] we have other players, like, Ben Wilmot and Domingos Quina."

Crystal Palace – vs – Tottenham Hotspur
No fresh concerns for the Eagles: "Nothing special to report at the moment," said Roy Hodgson. "We haven't recovered any of the injured players – Christian Benteke, Connor Wickham or Joel Ward - but haven't lost any [new ones] either." Scott Dann continues to build fitness with the under-23s.

Tests confirm Mousa Dembele is unlikely to return until the new year. "It is always about the patience, how he is going to react to the injury, but we hope he is going to be ready by early January." The Tottenham midfielder damaged ankle ligaments during the opening exchanges of last weekend’s win at Molineux. A thigh injury was expected to keep Eric Dier out until after the international break, but the 24-year-old has returned to full training - Victor Wanyama is available after overcoming the knee injury he sustained in the Carabao Cup. Jan Vertonghen [hamstring] won't return until December and Danny Rose [groin] is hoping to be back later this month.

Liverpool – vs – Fulham
Jurgen Klopp reported no new injuries before confirming Jordan Henderson [hamstring] and Joe Gomez [Achilles] will be considered. If there are any further issues, which could affect their availability for England, then that will be discussed with Gareth Southgate. Naby Keita returned to the matchday squad in Belgrade, so, except for Oxlade-Chamberlain, all the Liverpool midfield should be competing for a starting berth. “It’s about fitness levels and shape for Sunday.” Trent Alexander-Arnold, Nathaniel Clyne and Dejan Lovren have all trained ahead of the game.

Kevin McDonald’s return to the side was short-lived at Huddersfield and he was replaced just 20 minutes after his introduction because of a muscular injury. Joe Bryan continues his recovery from a hamstring strain and won’t be back for a few weeks. Following Monday’s defeat, the Lilywhites find themselves bottom of the Premier League and manager Slavisa Jokanovic acknowledges his future is now out of his hands.

Chelsea – vs – Everton
Eden Hazard played 60 minutes in Belarus and the Belgium star is ready for his first league start in three weeks after overcoming a back complaint. Ross Barkley completed the match and that’s enough for some to suggest that Mateo Kovacic is set for a recall. Cesc Fabregas [illness] will be checked, otherwise Chelsea have a clean bill of health.

Yerry Mina is poised for his first league start as Kurt Zouma is unable to face his parent club due to the terms of his loan agreement. "I'm really excited about the chance of playing this weekend. I'm glad to be in this moment. I'm in great shape, 100 per cent fit, and ready to help the team." Phil Jagielka and James McCarthy were involved in the friendly with Gor Mahia on Tuesday and the pair are now training normally. Leighton Baines was a late withdrawal from the game due to a stomach problem, but he should be fine. Jonjoe Kenny remains a doubt. Richarlison is the biggest concern as he is yet to complete a full session since suffering an ankle injury in the win over Brighton. "He did some individual work [on Friday]," confirmed Marco Silva. "There is a doubt, but we will see tomorrow. If he is not fit, it is an opportunity for someone else."

Arsenal – vs – Wolverhampton Wanderers
Arsenal say Danny Welbeck suffered a "significant" right ankle injury in the 0-0 draw with Sporting on Thursday. "Danny remains in hospital and will continue to be assessed. A further update will be issued over the next 72 hours." Expect Stephan Lichtsteiner - right hamstring - to miss out on Sunday, although the official line is. "Being assessed.” Nacho Monreal is training with the group and he could make the squad. Mohamed Elneny should be working normally from next week and Laurent Koscielny - Achilles - and Dinos Mavropanos - groin - are due to return later this month.

Diogo Jota - absent from the 2-3 defeat to Tottenham - will be available on Saturday. "He's better, he started training with the team, he's totally 100 per cent in the squad so he's an option." Nuno Espírito Santo will be hoping to arrest the slide at the Emirates after losing three on the spin.

Manchester City – vs – Manchester United
Following the return of Ilkay Gundogan and Nicolas Otamendi in the Champions League. Only Kevin de Bruyne [knee] and Claudio Bravo [Achilles] remain sidelined through injury. Eliaquim Mangala has returned to the training pitches, but the defender is way down the pecking order. Leroy Sane was an unused sub in the 6-0 drubbing of Shakhtar, but with so many attacking options, it’s difficult to know who Pep will name in his line-up.

“No new injuries,” Jose Mourinho told MUTV. “So, from Juventus, we don't bring important injuries. We have 'touches’, but I don't think any player that was available [midweek] will be out." The news will hopefully quash rumours that Alexis Sanchez is set to miss the game with a thigh problem [dead leg]. Romelu Lukaku might return. “We have a chance - it is Friday morning now - he could be back." The striker has two sessions to prove his fitness. “If the answer is positive – and we have of course one more session tomorrow – he is ready. In this moment I can only say that he trains with the team.”

Late news: Paul Pogba missed training on Friday and the United midfielder faces a race against time to feature in the derby.

Internationalitis, or did he go off early in the derby?
