Football 28/8/2021 – Manchester City v Arsenal

  • Ilkay Gundogan made a rapid recovery from a shoulder problem to start Manchester City’s demolition of Norwich last weekend.
  • Phil Foden is still sidelined for Pep Guardiola’s side and Belgium manager Roberto Martinez has revealed Kevin De Bruyne won’t play this weekend.
  • Aymeric Laporte looks set for a run in the first-team as John Stones works his way back from an extended break.
  • Gabriel Jesus impressed from a wide position against Norwich but Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez are both pushing for recalls on Saturday.
  • City announced on Thursday they have suspended Benjamin Mendy after he was charged by the police.
  • Alexandre Laczette, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Martin Odegaard are all available for Arsenal, though only the latter two are expected to start here.
  • Aubameyang looks safe to lead the line after scoring a hat-trick against West Brom on Wednesday night. Emile Smith Rowe may have to play out wide with Odegaard in the No.10 position.
  • Nicolas Pepe is on standby after Bukayo Saka took a heavy knock to his knee against West Brom. He was able to finish the match, however.
  • Mikel Arteta has confirmed Ben White will miss out once again in a blow for the Gunners.
  • Pablo Mari had a nightmare against Chelsea last weekend and it wouldn’t be a complete surprise if he was dropped here.
  • Kieran Tierney wasn’t risked in midweek but should recover in time to start at the Etihad. Aaron Ramsdale is not expected to displace Bernd Leno in goal just yet.

Football 28/8/2021 – Liverpool v Chelsea

  • Kostas Tsimikas performed well in Andy Robertson’s absence but the Scot is expected to regain his place in the side here.
  • Fabinho missed last weekend’s win over Burnley due to the sad passing of his father but could return here. Thiago is also pushing for his first start of the season.
  • Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was also absent last weekend after the birth of his first child but should be available for selection here.
  • Diogo Jota has started the season in good fashion but Roberto Firmino’s work rate could see the Brazilian recalled against Chelsea.
  • Hakim Ziyech and N’Golo Kante both recovered from injury to feature off the bench against Arsenal last weekend. The latter surely replaces Mateo Kovacic in the XI here.
  • Christian Pulisic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are expected to play no part due to positive COVID-19 tests.
  • Trevoh Chalobah can count himself unlucky to have been benched against Arsenal but is unlikely to get back in here either.
  • Ben Chilwell may have to continue warming the bench as Marcos Alonso has made a fine start to the season at left wing-back.
