Premier League 2/5/2021 – Newcastle United v Arsenal

  • Newcastle have four players ruled out, including former Arsenal midfielder Isaac Hayden, while Fabian Schar is a doubt. Super-sub Joe Willock is ineligible to face his parent club on Sunday.
  • Matt Ritchie is a doubt with a calf injury, which could see Paul Dummett pulled out to left-back and Schar at centre-back if he is fit enough himself.
  • Steve Bruce has taken no risks with Callum Wilson’s fitness since his return from injury. He has come off the bench in each of Newcastle’s last four games for about 30 minutes each match. Aside from Wilson potentially starting here, Newcastle should be unchanged from last weekend’s draw with Liverpool.
  • Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang returned to first-team action on Thursday and Kieran Tierney and Alexandre Lacazette are expected to follow suit this weekend.
  • Arsenal trail Villarreal 2-1 ahead of next week’s semi-final second leg and Mikel Arteta may hold some key players back on Sunday as a result.

Premier League 2/5/2021 – Manchester United v Liverpool

  • Ole Gunnar Solskjaer finds himself in a strange position heading into Sunday’s welcome of Liverpool after thrashing Roma 6-2 in their Europa League semi-final first-leg on Thursday. He may well have rested key men like Bruno Fernandes here but know may decide to hand fringe players game time next Thursday instead with the tie all but over.
  • Dean Henderson will certainly rotate back into the side to face Liverpool, while Eric Bailly will hope to make his first appearance for United since the start of March.
  • Jurgen Klopp will hope to restore Fabinho to central midfield at Old Trafford on Sunday but that depends on whether Nat Phillips recovers from injury in time.
  • Curtis Jones recovered from injury to feature against Newcastle from the bench last weekend. Liverpool are still without five players.
  • Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Mo Salah and Diogo Jota all started against Newcastle but it wouldn’t be a surprise if one of those drops out here.
  • Firmino and Mane, in particular, have really struggled in front of goal for quite a while now but Klopp is unlikely to axe either man given his loyalty to them.

Premier League 2/5/2021 – Tottenham v Sheffield United

  • Tottenham boss Ryan Mason has no further injury concerns on his hands ahead of Sunday’s welcome of Sheffield United.
  • Ben Davies is his only confirmed absentee, but Matt Doherty could be in line for a potential return.
  • Harry Winks was a surprise starter in the Carabao Cup final defeat to Manchester City, with Tanguy Ndombele in line to return to the side, while Gareth Bale may replace Lucas Moura in the XI.
  • Joe Rodon will be hoping for a return, but Mason could elect to continue with Eric Dier alongside Toby Alderweireld.
  • Paul Heckingbottom must make do without four players for the trip to Tottenham with Jack O’Connell, Billy Sharp, Oliver McBurnie and Chris Basham all sidelined.
  • Jack Robinson and Sander Berge are closing in on a return to fitness, though the latter is the more likely of the pair to feature.
  • After their 1-0 win over Brighton, Heckingbottom may name an unchanged XI.
