Updates from Thursday's pressers as distilled from the mighty Ben Dinnery https://twitter.com/bendinnery
Jose Izquierdo (knee) has been ruled out again while Alireza Jahanbakhsh (hamstring) won't be rushed following a minor setback. "He is close but we still have to make sure that we do everything right."
Shane Duffy serves the final game of his 3-game ban.
Sean Dyche confirms Aaron Lennon has had surgery to repair a cartilage tear in his knee. "There is no timescale at present on his return."
Johann Berg Gudmundsson (hamstring) returned to training on Monday and could be available barring a setback. Steve Defour (knee) misses out again.
Nick Pope (dislocated shoulder) returned for the U23s on Monday, but the Clarets goalkeeper is not ready to be considered for the first-team just yet.
Anguissa is available again after his ban, but Claudio Ranieri confirms the midfielder has been ruled out for "another ten days" after picking up an injury. Ryan Sessegnon (groin) will miss the trip to Tyneside - hoping to return to face Wolves "or the [game] after".
No fresh injury concerns from the defeat at home to Newcastle. “Steve Mounié is back and in contention." Van la Parra (back) will have a late fitness test.
Despite being included in Australia's 23-man squad for next month's Asian Cup, Aaron Mooy is expected to miss the tournament through injury . “We will rush nothing, no-one wants him to have further injuries. We think he’ll be out for eight weeks.”
Jamie Vardy was rested in the Carabao Cup midweek but will return to the matchday squad at Chelsea. "I hope he can play and find his qualities. We need Jamie. It’s been difficult for him with injuries and suspensions. We need him at his best."
Wilfried Ndidi and Ben Chilwell are both struggling with knee injuries and Claude Puel will make a late call on their availability.
CP on Ben Chilwell: "I think he can participate [in the Chelsea game]. We will see tomorrow."
James Milner is expected to be back in contention after missing the win over Manchester United: “I just had a bit of a sensation in my hamstring at the end of the Napoli game and the manager made the decision [to miss Sunday’s game]. It was the right thing not to risk me."
Trent Alexander-Arnold is expected to miss out again, however, he could return in GW19. “It actually looks surprisingly good,” said Klopp. “I think Wolves will still be a bit too early but after that, they told me we can think about him. The pain goes down second by second."
Joe Gomez (lower leg fracture), Joel Matip (fractured collarbone) and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (knee ligament) remain Liverpool’s long-term absentees.
Cedric and Lemina are among those who will be contention to face Huddersfield.
Serge Aurier (groin) and Mousa Dembele (ankle) are in the final stages of rehab. Eric Dier (appendicitis) has been discharged from hospital and will commence his recovery from next week. Jan Vertonghen (thigh) has begun work but won't return until January.
Etienne Capoue returns after his ban. “Everybody knows he is a very important player for us,” said Gracia. "His comeback makes us stronger. We have more options now. We know we play five games in 15 days and all of the players are important."
“We have the same players out of the team,” said Gracia. “We'll see for the next games if they are ready. Sebastian Prodl (knee) and Will Hughes (hip) are the players closest."
Lucas Perez (foot) faces a late fitness test. Otherwise, it's as you were for the Hammers. Up-to eight players missing for the visit of Watford on Saturday.
"We don't know if Wilshere needs [ankle] surgery. We need to wait for his medical examination. We cannot be sure just yet."
"I always say that December is a key month. We need to play so many games - seven in December - this [time] could decide a team's future. We've started [the month] well, but we're missing players and we have to use all of the squad."
Arnautovic (hamstring) could return ahead of schedule. "I think, next week, he will be back working with the team. When you don't have those players, you have a squad. I am happy with the options I've had without Marko [but] I'm not happy with Marko's injury."
Diogo Jota fails to recover from the hamstring injury which forced him off in the win over Bournemouth.
No other injury concerns for Nuno Espirito Santo.
And a final update from @CarefreeYouth, useful for those of us still playing the 17/18 season, is that Andreas Christensen went off injured with a minor hamstring strain last night.
