Premier League 8/5/2021 – Leeds United v Tottenham

  • Liam Cooper has served a ban and his return is a boost for Leeds, with the centre-back potentially starting alongside Diego Llorente.
  • Adam Forshaw is ruled out, while Marcelo Bielsa has confirmed the club will continue to monitor Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha.
  • However, Rodrigo is back for the hosts and he could start here in a re-shuffled midfielder with Helder Costa out for Leeds’ final four games of the season.
  • Giovani Lo Celso was on the receiving end of a nasty stamp from John Fleck on Sunday night and having nursed an ice pack on the sidelines, the Argentine will likely be assessed ahead of Saturday’s trip to Leeds.
  • Ben Davies is sidelined, but he is Ryan Mason’s only confirmed absentee for the meeting with the Whites.
  • Harry Winks seems to be ahead of Tanguy Ndombele in the pecking order and if Lo Celso does miss out, it’s the former who would likely come into the XI.

  • Sander Berge made his long-awaited comeback from injury last weekend with 45 minutes under his belt and he will push for a first start since December here.
  • Chris Basham is also back for Sheffield United but the Blades are expected to miss at least four players through injury.
  • Chelsea loanee Ethan Ampadu will need to be assessed after missing the 4-0 defeat to Tottenham last weekend with a groin complaint.
  • Gary Cahill was back on the bench against Manchester City last weekend, while James Tomkins got an hour under his belt for the U23s on Monday.
  • Jordan Ayew will push for a recall but few other changes are expected from Roy Hodgson’s side.

Premier League 8/5/2021 – Manchester City v Chelsea

  • Pep Guardiola may also rotate a bit on Saturday, though Manchester City have had an extra 24 hours to rest and prepare for this game compared to Chelsea.
  • Aymeric Laporte will definitely rotate into the side with John Stones suspended for champions-elect City.
  • Rodri surprisingly dropped against Paris Saint-Germain in midweek but should regain his place from Fernandinho here. Joao Cancelo should also return to the starting XI.
  • Riyad Mahrez and Phil Foden have been in spectacular form of late but the likes of Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus are decent options to have in reserve.
  • Thomas Tuchel will have to rotate his squad somewhat on Saturday after Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final with Real Madrid.
  • Cesar Azpilicueta was really struggling towards the end and it wouldn’t be a surprise if he was given the weekend off.
  • Christian Pulisic, Kurt Zouma, Hakim Ziyech, Marcos Alonso and Reece James are perhaps the most likely to come into the starting XI at the Etihad.
  • Tuchel would love to have Mateo Kovacic back to take the strain off Jorginho and N’Golo Kante but he is targeting a return in midweek.

  • Liverpool had the weekend off after their game with Manchester United was postponed. Nat Phillips was actually named in Liverpool’s starting XI if that game went ahead so he is now back from injury.
  • Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Mo Salah and Diogo Jota are likely vying for three spots in attack on Saturday.
  • Danny Ings will likely miss out against his former employers and may not feature again this season.
  • Jannik Vestergaard is free to play after Southampton successfully overturned his red card from last week’s draw with Leicester.
  • Takumi Minamino will have to watch from the sidelines as he is unable to face parent club Liverpool.
  • Jack Stephens will be required at left-back once again if Ryan Bertrand is sidelined for the away side.
