Premier League & Others 6/2/2021 – Selected Team News
Aston Villa v Arsenal
- Aston Villa were well beaten by West Ham on Wednesday. Dean Smith is going to have to start rotating sooner rather than later or risk undoing all their good work this season.
- Bertrand Traore, Trezeguet, Morgan Sanson and even Marvelous Nakamba will push for starts against Arsenal. Jack Grealish could even move inside for Trezeguet to start on the left.
- Mat Ryan didn’t train on Thursday and is running out of time to prove his fitness ahead of Saturday’s early kick-off.
- Third choice goalkeeper Runar Alex Runarsson is on standby to replace a suspended Bernd Leno which is a big blow for the away side. Arsenal fans will pain to see Emi Martinez in goal for Villa on Saturday.
- Arsenal failed in their appeal against David Luiz’s red card against Wolves so Gabriel will deputise.
- Cedric Soares looks set to continue at left-back as Kieran Tierney is still managing a calf injury.
- Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will return to the starting XI for the away side.
- Emile Smith Rowe will hope to keep out January signing Martin Odegaard once again.
Newcastle v Southampton
- Joseph Willock didn’t join in time to face Crystal Palace in midweek but will debut here.
- Steve Bruce has confirmed Allan Saint-Maximin is now ready to start.
- Southampton plunged into crisis in midweek with a 9-0 defeat away to Manchester United.
- 19-year-old Alexandre Jankewitz was sent off on his full league debut within two minutes and is now banned for three games.
- Jan Bednarek was also shown his marching orders but Southampton have successfully overturned it on appeal.
- Deadline day signing Takumi Minamino must be wondering what he has joined but he is now free to debut for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side.
- Unless one of Danny Ings or Che Adams are dropped, Hasenhuttl may change formation to get Minamino in the side. Playing him central midfield alongside James Ward-Prowse may leave them exposed defensively.
- Kyle Walker-Peters’ injury isn’t as bad as first feared and he could return here. Kayne Ramsey is on standby to continue.
- Oriol Romeu trained on Thursday and should return here, while Jannik Vestergaard has an outside chance of making it.
- A minor muscle injury will keep Stuart Armstrong out of this one.
Fulham v West Ham
- Fulham remain without Terence Kongolo and Tom Cairney this weekend.
- Deadline day arrival Josh Maja will hope to make his debut on Saturday.
- Bobby Reid and Ivan Cavaleiro will push for recalls for this London derby.
- Handed a full debut sooner than expected, Jesse Lingard didn’t disappoint with a match-winning brace in a 3-1 win away to Aston Villa. Knowing he cannot play against parent club Manchester United next week, David Moyes may start him again here.
- Jarrod Bowen and Pablo Fornals will push for recalls here after dropping to the bench against Villa.
Manchester United v Everton
- No risks were taken with Edinson Cavani after a heavy knock to his ankle against Southampton but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes he should be fine to feature against Everton.
- Luke Shaw was taken off against Southampton to prevent risk of injury with victory already in the bag. He should be fine to start here.
- Paul Pogba was rested in midweek after a lot of minutes in January and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be tempted to bench him again here after they beat Southampton 9-0.
- Mason Greenwood and Anthony Martial’s involvement will depend on Cavani’s availability. Greenwood deserves another start but Martial scored twice of the bench to do his confidence the world of good. Solskjaer has some decision to make.
- Eric Bailly is rated as a doubt and no risks are likely to be taken with him here.
- Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti has ruled Jordan Pickford out on Saturday’s game with Manchester United. Robin Olsen will continue.
- Only on the bench in midweek, look for James Rodriguez to return to the starting XI. Gylfi Sigurdsson doesn’t necessarily drop out as a result. He could either play alongside Abdoulaye Doucoure or Rodriguez could play wide right.
- Allan resumed training on Friday but after so long out he may only make the bench at best here.
- Former United forward Joshua King is unlikely to make a full Premier League debut for Everton back at Old Trafford. Michael Keane should return to the starting XI against his old club, however.
- Seamus Coleman and Mason Holgate are in competition to start at right-back on Saturday night.
