Premier League & Others 21/2/2021 – Selected Team News
West Ham United v Tottenham Hotspur
- David Moyes is hoping to recover Michail Antonio in time for the welcome of Tottenham.
- Darren Randolph and Fabian Balbuena will also be assessed, but Arthur Masuaku, Andriy Yarmolenko and Angelo Ogbonna miss out.
- Moyes may name the same XI that started the 3-0 win over Sheffield United, which would see Jarrod Bowen lead the attack.
- Serge Aurier will miss the trip to West Ham and after Matt Doherty played the full 90 minutes against Wolfsberger, Japhet Tanganga may start at right-back.
- Giovani Lo Celso is also sidelined, but Sergio Reguilon is back in training and could return to the XI.
- Jose Mourinho also has a decision to make at centre-back, with Davinson Sanchez at risk of being dropped following a disappointing performance at Manchester City.
Aston Villa v Leicester City
- Matty Cash is sidelined with a hamstring injury sustained in the 0-0 draw with Brighton, which is a huge blow for Aston Villa.
- The right-back joins Kortney Hause and Wesley on the sidelines.
- Ahmed El Mohamady is set to come in at right-back for the Villans, while Dean Smith may make changes to the XI that started at Brighton, with Trezeguet and Morgan Sanson coming in for Bertrand Traore and Ross Barkley.
- Brendan Rodgers is set to have Timothy Castagne available for the trip to Aston Villa, which is a boost with James Justin sidelined for the rest of the season.
- Dennis Praet, Wesley Fofana, Wes Morgan and Ayoze Perez are all ruled out for the Foxes.
- Rodgers may be tempted to name the same side that started the 3-1 win over Liverpool, though Castagne could come in for Daniel Amartey, fitness permitting.
- Ricardo Pereira missed the 0-0 draw with Slavia Prague, but that was a precaution and he should be fine to start.
Arsenal v Manchester City
- Mikel Arteta surprisingly named an unchanged side from the win over Leeds in Thursday’s 1-1 draw against Benfica in Rome on Thursday.
- Kieran Tierney made his comeback as a substitute and will likely return to the starting XI here, with Cedric Soares and Hector Bellerin left to battle it out at right-back.
- Alexandre Lacazette didn’t even get off the bench against Benfica despite there being five substitutes in Europe.
- Rob Holding has similarly dropped out of favour of late after some good form at the back for Arsenal.
- Thomas Partey didn’t travel with Arsenal in midweek and remains a doubt for Sunday.
- Kevin De Bruyne returned from injury as a substitute in Wednesday’s 3-1 win over Everton. Fernandinho and Sergio Aguero were also on the bench.
- Pep Guardiola is sweating on the fitness of man-of-the-moment Ilkay Gundogan after the midfielder was absent against Everton owing to a minor groin injury.
- With De Bruyne back available, it will be interesting to see how Guardiola sets City up going forward given the form of both Gundogan and Bernardo Silva of late.
- City play Gladbach in the Champions League next week so Guardiola will no doubt have that match in the back of his mind when picking the side to face Arsenal.
- John Stones and Ruben Dias should be reunited at the back on Sunday, with Oleksandar Zinchenko also returning to the side after emerging as a key player for City again in recent weeks.
Manchester United v Newcastle United
- Eric Bailly returned to first-team action on Thursday night but Paul Pogba won’t return until next month.
- Donny van de Beek and Edinson Cavani are doubts with muscle injuries after both missing the trip to Italy.
- David de Gea looks set to keep the gloves for now after a strong performance against West Brom last weekend.
- Scott McTominay was a doubt heading into Thursday’s game and was withdrawn after 60 minutes so is back to being an injury concern.
- Van de Beek would hope to replace McTominay, albeit carrying out his position differently, but as he is also a doubt then Nemanja Matic may get a rare start.
- Amad Diallo made his highly anticipated debut against Real Sociedad but is unlikely to feature here. He has a good chance of making a full debut in the return leg on Thursday.
- Jamaal Lascelles returned from injury in Newcastle’s predictable 2-0 defeat to Chelsea last time out.
- Newcastle are boosted by Jeff Hendrick’s return from suspension this weekend.
- Federico Fernández is back in training but Sunday will come too soon. He should return for their next match.
- But Steve Bruce’s side remain without star striker Callum Wilson and now face being sucked back into the relegation fight.
- Ryan Fraser, Sean Longstaff, Dwight Gayle and Joelinton are pushing for starts on Sunday.
