Sports Mole

ARSENAL

Gameweek 32 opponents: Brighton (A)

Out: Jurrien Timber (knee)

Doubtful: Bukayo Saka (hamstring)

Mikel Arteta quotes: "We will know [about Saka] with our training session in a few hours. We will know whether he is fit or not."



ASTON VILLA

Gameweek 32 opponents: Brentford (H)

Out: Emiliano Buendia (knee), Tyrone Mings (knee), Boubacar Kamara (knee), Matty Cash (hamstring), Jacob Ramsey (toe)

Doubtful: Emiliano Martinez (illness), Ollie Watkins (thigh), Nicolo Zaniolo (unspecified)

Unai Emery quotes: "Emi Martinez and Ollie Watkins, they could play tomorrow. We will prepare the match. Tomorrow we will know if they are available and ready to play. They will both be in the squad.

"[Ramsey] again has some problems in his toe and he is not going to be [available] for the rest of the season."



BOURNEMOUTH

Gameweek 32 opponents: Luton (A)

Out: Ryan Fredericks (calf), Luis Sinisterra (thigh)

Doubtful: Chris Mepham (illness), Lloyd Kelly (hip), Marcos Senesi (thigh)

Andoni Iraola quotes: "I wouldn't say it's impossible [for Senesi to be available], because every day he does more things with the group. Also these are kind of trainings where we cannot push a lot.

"They are almost recovery trainings we are doing. In between the games, he is able to do it with the team. So I hope he can be in the squad I think.

"Sometimes I am very clear and I tell you this will be and this will not, but this week is going to be difficult. Because like I told you after the [Crystal Palace] game, we have some cases of, I don't want to say 'illness' but they are not probably feeling 100%.

"Tomorrow they could come fresh and they are available for the game. It is true we have some players who are let's say in doubtful conditions to perform if the game was [yesterday]. Luckily for us, we still have [one day] and we hope they can recover and help us.

"They are not fresh injuries, nothing injury-related, but it is true we have some situations we are dealing with day to day. It is true that we have some doubts, yes.

"The key for me is if they have a temperature or not. If you have a temperature, probably you will be two or three days with these symptoms and it is difficult to play football with a temperature. It is a matter of different situations. But we still have [time] and I hope we don't miss more players."



BRENTFORD

Gameweek 32 opponents: Aston Villa (A)

Out: Joshua Dasilva (knee), Rico Henry (knee), Ben Mee (ankle), Christian Norgaard (back), Ethan Pinnock (ankle), Aaron Hickey (hamstring)

Doubtful: Kevin Schade (adductor)

Thomas Frank quotes: "Everyone is in a fine place. There are some tired boys, naturally, after two games and the international week where a lot of them played good minutes, which we are proud of and happy with. They will be more than ready for Saturday; it is today they are allowed to be tired.

"Schade could be available and that's something I need to think about for Saturday. It will be very good to have him back. That pace he's got is incredible. I remember that fantastic action when he put it in the top corner against Crystal Palace at home. That seems like ages ago! So that would be very positive."

Club statement: "Defender Ethan Pinnock (ankle) and midfielder Christian Norgaard (back) are progressing well but remain sidelined for the Bees' trip to Villa Park.

"Full-back Aaron Hickey (hamstring) is also unavailable, while Rico Henry (knee), Josh Dasilva (knee) and Ben Mee (ankle) are out for the remainder of the season."



BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION

Gameweek 32 opponents: Arsenal (H)

Out: Solly March (knee), Kaoru Mitoma (back), Jack Hinshelwood (foot), Billy Gilmour (knee), Adam Webster (knock), Evan Ferguson (ankle), James Milner (thigh)

Doubtful: None

Club statement: "Ansu Fati and Valentin Barco are back in the squad after missing Wednesday's goalless draw against Brentford, but Adam Webster and Evan Ferguson are not available."



BURNLEY

Gameweek 32 opponents: Everton (A)

Out: Aaron Ramsey (knee), Nathan Redmond (thigh), Luca Koleosho (thigh)

Doubtful: Jordan Beyer (thigh), Ameen Al-Dakhil (unspecified)

Vincent Kompany quotes: "First we have to make sure we assess everyone after two games in quick succession and whoever is ready and fit to play, will. But I believe everyone has come through fine and ready to go on Saturday."



CHELSEA

Gameweek 32 opponents: Sheff Utd (A)

Out: Wesley Fofana (knee), Romeo Lavia (thigh), Reece James (hamstring), Christopher Nkunku (hamstring), Levi Colwill (foot), Trevoh Chalobah (unspecified), Lesley Ugochukwu (hamstring)

Doubtful: Ben Chilwell (illness), Robert Sanchez (unspecified)

Mauricio Pochettino quotes: "We need to see [on Chilwell]. Still he is not training. We will see if he can be involved [in training today] but then Sunday is the game, so there isn't much time. If he's not ready for Sunday, then we hope for the next game he will be available."



CRYSTAL PALACE

Gameweek 32 opponents: Man City (H)

Out: Sam Johnstone (elbow), Cheick Doucoure (Achilles), Rob Holding (ankle), Marc Guehi (knee), Chris Richards (knee), Odsonne Edouard (knee), Matheus Franca (groin)

Doubtful: Jesurun Rak-Sakyi (thigh), Michael Olise (thigh)

Oliver Glasner quotes: "All the players who were in the squad in the last games are fit again. Michael is coming back into the squad. We spoke to the medical team and the advice is for 15 or 20 minutes. He is ready and it gives us one more option towards the end of the game so we are happy.

"We didn't train a lot this week because it's the third game now, but of course he has shown his individual quality in possession. His dribbling, his finishing is great.

"But he was out now for eight weeks and for the fourth time this season, so he was more in rehab than on the pitch. We will give him the time to find his best performance, to get his quality back.

"Everyone needs rhythm, everyone needs minutes, needs training. He is now starting [to get that] so I don't expect him at the best level after eight or nine weeks of injury, but he can play 15 or 20 minutes. If it is still a tight game at the end, then maybe he can have one or two decisive situations to decide the game against us.

"[Marc Guehi] is not training with the team at the minute. I would say he will be at least two or three weeks.

"We will look from day to day [at Chris Richards] - one day it looks better and then the next day not so. But I think he will miss at least the Liverpool game and then we will see. He will be out for two or three weeks."



EVERTON

Gameweek 32 opponents: Burnley (H)

Out: Dele Alli (groin), Arnaut Danjuma (ankle), Lewis Dobbin (ankle), Andre Gomes (calf)

Doubtful: Amadou Onana (knock)

Sean Dyche quotes: "Andre [Gomes] is getting fitter and sharper. It's only really been a fitness issue with Andre, he has been really unlucky with niggly calf injuries, but he is looking stronger and fitter all the time.

"Arnie [Danjuma] is on the grass, he is not quite fit yet, but he is on the grass with us.

"Jimmy [Garner] got some rest the other night then came on and delivered a really strong performance. We have a very competitive group, especially at the full-back positions now Seamus [Coleman] is fit as well. Shay had played three in a week, so we had to be careful with that which is obvious.

"Amadou [Onana] has had a few knocks, we will see how he is [today]. Dobbo (Lewis Dobson) is making good progress now.

"The lads in midfield, Arnie [Danjuma] and Youssef Chermiti are in Ramadan as well. We have got to weigh up that and make sure they have as much energy as they can while also respecting their faith.

"That offers the idea of change and freshness, we felt that was necessary with three [games] in a week as well."



FULHAM

Gameweek 32 opponents: Newcastle (H)

Out: None

Doubtful: None

Club statement: "Marco Silva should have a fully fit squad to choose from."



LIVERPOOL

Gameweek 32 opponents: Man Utd (A)

Out: Joel Matip (knee), Alisson Becker (hamstring), Stefan Bajcetic (calf), Trent Alexander-Arnold (knee), Diogo Jota (knee), Thiago Alcantara (thigh)

Doubtful: Wataru Endo (knock)

Jurgen Klopp quotes: "We are in it and that's cool, that's good. And now let's keep fighting, that's how it is.

"Obviously the next one is the big one, like they all are. Somebody said we had the best fixture list or schedule; I looked at it and I really don't know how you can have had that idea, maybe I'm too negative but it's a tough one, good opponents. But we are ready and we want to be in that fight, so let's see what we can make of it."



LUTON TOWN

Gameweek 32 opponents: Bournemouth (H)

Out: Tom Lockyer (heart issue), Amari'i Bell (hamstring), Marvelous Nakamba (knee), Elijah Adebayo (thigh), Dan Potts (hamstring), Mads Anderson (calf), Chiedozie Ogbene (hamstring), Jacob Brown (knee), Gabriel Osho (knee)

Doubtful: Reece Burke (unspecified), Albert Sambi Lokonga (thigh)

Club statement: Luton will again be without at least 10 players against Bournemouth although Reece Burke could return after missing Wednesday's 2-0 defeat at Arsenal

"Sambi [Lokonga]'s trying," said Rob Edwards. "The likes of Eli [Adebayo] and Chieo [Ogbene] might be after that, but all the lads are keen to get back as soon as possible."



MANCHESTER CITY

Gameweek 32 opponents: Crystal Palace (A)

Out: Kyle Walker (hamstring), Nathan Ake (calf)

Doubtful: Ederson (leg)

Pep Guardiola quotes: "Ederson is much better. Maybe will be on the list. Nathan [Ake] and Kyle [Walker] are out.

"[I will judge] the faces of the players, the players who recover quicker than the other one. Many aspects. We have to talk with the doctors, the physios, my staff and we will decide tonight or tomorrow early morning.

"I don't know yet [if Kevin De Bruyne and Erling Haaland will return]. Playing 12.30 and just won two days ago, I have to think."



MANCHESTER UNITED

Gameweek 32 opponents: Liverpool (H)

Out: Luke Shaw (thigh), Tyrell Malacia (knee), Anthony Martial (groin), Lisandro Martinez (calf), Victor Lindelof (thigh)

Doubtful: Jonny Evans (unspecified), Casemiro (muscle), Altay Bayindir (muscle), Raphael Varane (foot)

Club statement: "Manchester United have issues in defence as we head towards Sunday's crucial Premier League meeting with Liverpool.

"Victor Lindelof and Lisandro Martinez were ruled out for at least a month, two days before Thursday's helter-skelter 4-3 defeat at Chelsea, and two more centre-backs also have fitness issues following the trip to London.

"Raphael Varane was substituted at half-time for the second game in a row after limping in the closing stages of the first half.

"The Frenchman was replaced by Jonny Evans – back after missing the Liverpool and Brentford games in March – for the second period but the 36-year-old could only manage a 21-minute cameo before Willy Kambwala had to be called upon.

"After the game, Erik ten Hag said it was too early to assess the severity of the pair's problems, but if they cannot return in time for the Merseysiders' visit on Sunday, that would leave Kambwala and Harry Maguire as the only natural options in central defence.

"There are questions over Casemiro's fitness too, as the Brazilian midfielder was also forced off in the second half, but Mason Mount could be pushing for a start after another promising cameo.

"Goalkeeper Altay Bayindir was among the replacements in west London too, after recovering from injury, while Amad – scorer of the winning goal in the memorable United v Liverpool Emirates FA Cup quarter-final three weeks ago – returned to the squad following suspension.

"There has been no further update regarding a trio of longer-term absentees.

"Anthony Martial has not featured since December and is still recovering from groin surgery, while Luke Shaw hopes to return from his complaint before the end of the campaign.

"Tyrell Malacia is another player sidelined, with the Dutchman yet to feature in the 2023-24 season."



NEWCASTLE UNITED

Gameweek 32 opponents: Fulham (A)

Out: Sandro Tonali (suspended), Sven Botman (knee), Lewis Miley (back), Callum Wilson (chest), Joelinton (thigh), Nick Pope (shoulder), Jamaal Lascelles (knee), Valentino Livramento (ankle), Miguel Almiron (knee), Kieran Trippier (calf)

Doubtful: Lewis Hall (thigh), Matt Targett (Achilles)

Eddie Howe quotes: "Tino's was quite obvious when you looked back at the footage. [It was] strange really as the ball hits his ankle before it hits the floor. Thankfully, it's not as serious as it could have been. He could be back quite quickly.

"Miggy tweaked his knee slightly. Again, it's not a serious injury but enough to keep him out.

"It's big blow for us and Jamaal. He's been excellent this season. Behind the scenes he's been a real leader for our team. I feel for him because he's been in really good shape this year and looked really good.

"He's come together with Antonio and unfortunately ended up with a serious injury. Initially it's always difficult to accept. One minute you're in the team, the next you've got a long period of rehab.

"He'll have low moments during that long stretch but he's got a good team of people around him and Sven [Botman], who is in a very similar position.

"The difficult thing is when you are stretched and lose a couple more, then you become even more stretched. When you get to a tipping point it is very difficult to control that.

"You don't have the flexibility to protect players and we have been in that situation for months. That is where we are currently, especially with our defenders.

"Callum is doing the hard yards. He is running hard. It is an upper limb injury so he can keep fit and when he is ready to come back I think he will be looking good."



NOTTINGHAM FOREST

Gameweek 32 opponents: Spurs (A)

Out: Taiwo Awoniyi (unspecified), Nuno Tavares (thigh), Willy Boly (muscle)

Doubtful: None

Nuno Espirito Santo quotes: Boly is "still out and still on treatment", while the club still do not have the exact timeframe for Awoniyi's return.



SHEFFIELD UNITED

Gameweek 32 opponents: Chelsea (H)

Out: Max Lowe (ankle), Rhys Norrington-Davies (hamstring), Chris Basham (foot), John Egan (ankle), Rhian Brewster (hamstring), Daniel Jebbison (ill), George Baldock (calf), Tom Davies (thigh)

Doubtful: Cameron Archer (calf), Gus Hamer (unspecified)

Chris Wilder quotes: "Gus [Hamer] is getting checked over, hopefully he'll be OK. Getting Cameron Archer back is good news, a positive one for us."



TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR

Gameweek 32 opponents: Nott'm Forest (H)

Out: Ryan Sessegnon (hamstring), Fraser Forster (foot), Manor Solomon (knee)

Doubtful: Richarlison (knee)

Ange Postecoglou quotes: "Brennan Johnson is fine. Richarlison has had a bit of a niggle with his knee and it's better he takes this weekend off. Everyone else is fine."



WEST HAM UNITED

Gameweek 32 opponents: Wolves (A)

Out: Alphonse Areola (groin)

Doubtful: Nayef Aguerd (fatigue)

David Moyes quotes: "Alphonse [Areola] felt a slight tweak to his groin at St James' Park. We hope he won't be out for too long, but he's not going to be available for the game against Wolves.

"We've missed Edson [Alvarez]'s presence, and he's had a big influence on things since he signed last summer, so we're looking forward to having him back [from suspension].

"We think Nayef [Aguerd]'s getting better, and he's had an injection in his shoulder. We're hoping he might be able to return, but it depends on how he can deal with contact, so we'll have to wait and see."



WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS

Gameweek 32 opponents: Wolves (H)

Out: Pedro Neto (hamstring), Jean-Ricner Bellegarde (knee)

Doubtful: Hwang Hee-chan (thigh), Craig Dawson (groin)

Gary O'Neil quotes: "[Hwang Hee-chan] and [Craig Dawson] both trained today, so we'll see how they come out of that. It was their first main session after doing a couple of smaller ones, so they'll be reviewed as to whether they'll be part of the matchday squad tomorrow.

"[Jean-Ricner] Bellegarde is still not available but is doing better and [Matheus] Cunha is still in a good spot after his appearance the other night, no other issues and is feeling good so we can use him a bit more.

"Matheus Cunha feels great, the scans look very, very good now. We've put him through his paces because I need to see that he's ready. We've put him through a lot of work of the grass and he's come through all of it.

"He's been out for a while and he only played a small period but he gave us something. We started to cause Burnley a few more problems when we got it into him. As much as you do as a manager to try to help the team, good players are the biggest help and he's definitely one of those."
