Premier League & Others 27/1/2021 – Selected Team News
Burnley v Aston Villa
Having suffered an injury on his return from a spell on the sidelines recently it’s unlikely that Charlie Taylor will be rushed back into action.
- Following a sensational win over Liverpool, Sean Dyche rotated his side in the cup and still won comfortably against a Fulham side who did the same.
- A few players will have hoped to have played themselves into contention, not least Jay Rodriguez following his brace at the weekend, with Chris Wood’s place up front certainly under threat.
- Meanwhile, the return of Jack Cork following a long term injury is a big boost and he is sure to come into the league picture soon enough.
- Dean Smith praised Marvelous Nakamba for his display at the weekend but surely John McGinn comes back into the side after serving a suspension.
- Aston Villa midfield options are further bolstered by the arrival of Marseille midfielder Morgan Sanson but he may not debut until the weekend at the earliest.
- Trezeguet made his return to action from the bench on Saturday but with Bertrand Traore impressing right now, he’ll have to make do with a place on the bench alongside Anwar El Ghazi.
Chelsea v Wolves
- Chelsea sacked Frank Lampard on Monday, with former Paris Saint-Germain boss Thomas Tuchel set to replace him.
- Tuchel has been identified as Lampard’s successor to bring the best out of German duo Kai Havertz and Timo Werner.
- Aside from N’Golo Kante, Chelsea have fully fit squad for the welcome of Wolves in midweek, though it remains to be seen how they will line up.
- Willian Jose joined the club on Saturday morning and could make his full debut in the trip to Stamford Bridge.
- The Brazilian’s inclusion would likely see Fabio Silva drop out of the starting XI, while Willy Boly should keep his spot in defence following a return from injury.
- Daniel Podence is close to a return to fitness, but Marcal, Jonny and Raul Jimenez miss out.
Everton v Leicester City
- Lucas Digne and Alex Iwobi were not fit to play in the FA Cup on Sunday but Carlo Ancelotti did say that both would be available for the visit of Leicester.
- Allan, Fabian Delph and long-term absentee Jean-Philippe Gbamin remain sidelined, however, along with youngster Niels Nkounkou. Abdoulaye Doucoure’s serves a one-match ban.
- Tom Davies is the obvious replacement for Doucoure but Ancelotti has revealed he is also considering Mason Holgate in midfield. That would open up a space for either Ben Godfrey or Seamus Coleman to play at right-back.
- Dominic Calvert-Lewin returned to action in the cup with a goal and will continue to lead the line having been withdrawn midway through the second half against Sheffield Wednesday having return to the scoresheet.
- Jamie Vardy is unlikely to recover in time for the trip to Goodison Park and will instead be targetting a return to action against Leeds at the weekend.
- Ayoze Perez got the nod over Kelechi Iheanacho in the cup and could lead the line once more, with Cengiz Under and Marc Albrighton competing for a place on the right.
- Elsewhere the likes of the fit again Ricardo Pereira and Caglar Soyuncu, who were both pivotal players last season, may continue to have to bide their time for a return to the side.
Manchester United v Sheffield United
- Marcus Rashford trained fully on Tuesday after picking up a knee injury against Liverpool on Sunday. With Arsenal to come this weekend, however, he may only make the bench here.
- Anthony Martial should return at his teammates expense, while Bruno Fernandes will also come back into the lineup, most likely in place of Donny van de Beek.
- Mason Greenwood will hope to keep his place in the side following a goal at the weekend, while Alex Telles, Fred and Eric Bailly could offer some rotation, with Paul Pogba likely to be among those Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be looking to hold back for Arsenal.
- Brandon Williams looks set to stay now United have failed to find a new right-back. Back in training, he could be a surprise inclusion here just to give Aaron Wan-Bissaka a breather.
- Sheffield United are short of options at the back with a suspended John Egan joining Jack Robinson and Jack O’Connell on the sidelines. Look for Kean Bryan to start.
- Sander Berge, Oliver McBurnie and Ben Osborn are also ruled out for the away side set to remain on the sidelines, though Lys Mousset could be available.
- Chris Wilder named a full strength side in the cup so changes are likely to be kept to a minimum, with George Baldock and David McGoldrick the most likely to come into the side.
