Premier League 28/12/2021 – Crystal Palace v Norwich

  • Wilfried Zaha is suspended after his red card against Tottenham on Boxing Day.
  • Nathan Ferguson made his Crystal Palace debut 18 months after joining in the 3-0 loss.
  • Joachim Andersen had a nightmare against Tottenham and may drop out here.
  • Christian Benteke, Luka Milivojevic, Michael Olise and Eberechi Eze missed out completely on Sunday after a COVID outbreak at Palace. Manager Patrick Vieira is also unavailable.
  • Jack Butland appears to have leapfrogged Vicente Guaita in the pecking order in goal for the time being.
  • Dean Smith has already suggested Ozan Kabak won’t start both games over the Christmas period so he may drop out from the side that lost 5-0 to Arsenal on Boxing Day. The only problem is Norwich are short of alternatives at the moment.
  • Angus Gunn is expected to continue in goal after Tim Krul tested positive for COVID over Christmas but Christos Tzolis, Pierre Lees-Melou and Joshua Sargent all returned on Boxing Day. Lukas Rupp remains a doubt.
  • Dimitris Giannoulis should rotate into the side at the expense of Manchester United loanee Brandon Williams. The likes of Sam Bryam and Todd Cantwell are also pushing for starts.

Premier League 28/12/2021 – Watford v West Ham United

  • Claudio Ranieri is without no fewer than six players for the welcome of West Ham, with Adam Masina, Ben Foster, Ismaila Sarr, Nicolas Nkoulou, Peter Etebo and Kwadwo Baah absent.
  • Francisco Sierralta may replace William Troost-Ekong at the heart of the defence after the latter conceded a late penalty against Brentford earlier this month.
  • Watford are recovering players from a COVID-19 outbreak but have also received new positive tests. Without knowing who is impacted, it’s hard to know who exactly is available.
  • Declan Rice is suspended for the trip to Watford after his yellow card against Southampton, with Alex Kral and Mark Noble battling to start alongside Tomas Soucek in the middle of the park.
  • Defenders Aaron Cresswell, Angelo Ogbonna and Kurt Zouma are all sidelined due to injury.
  • David Moyes could make a couple of changes to the XI that started the defeat to Saints, with Ben Johnson, Manuel Lanzini and Michail Antonio potentially starting at Vicarage Road.

  • Daniel Amartey and Hamza Choudhury returned from COVID-19 to start in Leicester’s heavy Boxing Day defeat to Manchester City.
  • Ricardo Pereira is out for the foreseeable future with a knee injury, while Ryan Bertrand picked up an injury in the warm-up on Boxing Day. Patson Daka is out for three weeks.
  • Jamie Vardy and Wilfred Ndidi didn’t even make it off the bench against City but will surely come back into the side here given the sharp turnaround.
  • Kelechi Iheanacho should keep his place in the side after playing a direct hand in all three of Leicester’s goals against City.
  • Virgil van Dijk, Fabinho and Curtis Jones returned to training on Christmas Day after recovering from COVID-19. Thiago is also COVID free.
