Premier League & Others 7/3/2021 – Selected Team News
West Bromwich Albion v Newcastle
- Robert Snodgrass returned to first-team action as a substitute in West Brom’s 1-0 defeat to Everton in midweek and will push for a start here.
- Allan Saint-Maximin and Miguel Almiron have joined Callum Wilson on the sidelines, with all three ruled out for the rest of the month in a huge blow for Newcastle.
- Steve Bruce’s future at Newcastle is in doubt after reportedly clashing with Matt Ritchie in training in midweek. Ritchie is unlikely to feature as long as Bruce remains in charge.
- Defensive duo Emil Krafth and Federico Fernandez are both doubts for the away side ahead of Sunday’s trip to relegation rivals West Brom. Isaac Hayden needs checking as well.
- Jacob Murphy may be required at right-back if Krafth misses out for Steve Bruce’s side, with Javier Manquillo already on the sidelines.
Liverpool v Fulham
- Diogo Jota made his long-awaited return to action in Thursday’s 1-0 defeat to Chelsea and his recovery is a boost for the Reds.
- Head coach Jurgen Klopp remains without Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Jordan Henderson, while Caoimhin Kelleher is a doubt, though with Alisson back, the youngster wouldn’t have started regardless.
- Mohamed Salah was surprisingly brought off after an hour in the loss to the Blues, but should start here.
- Klopp has confirmed Ozan Kabak is a doubt for their match with Fulham, which could see Nat Phillips start on Sunday, though he himself is a doubt with a back problem. Ben Davies is available, however.
- Scott Parker has no fresh injury concerns for the trip to Liverpool, with Tom Cairney and Marek Rodak ruled out once again.
- Parker may revert back to a 4-2-3-1 setup for the trip to Liverpool, with Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa returning to the side at the expense of Mario Lemina and Bobby Reid coming in on the right.
- Ola Aina may keep his spot at right-back, which would see Kenny Tete forced to watch from the bench.
Manchester City v Manchester United
- John Stones will rotate back into the side at Aymeric Laporte’s expense from the side that beat Wolves 4-1 on Tuesday.
- Oleksandar Zinchenko will hope for a recall but with enough time between matches Kyle Walker may keep his place in the side here.
- Gabriel Jesus scored twice in midweek but even that may not be enough to secure a start in the derby.
- A well-rested Phil Foden should return to the fold here after only managing 25 minutes across City’s last two games.
- Raheem Sterling is an automatic starter, even though his record against Manchester United is remarkably poor, leaving Riyad Mahrez and Bernardo Silva to fight for the final spot in attack.
- Pep Guardiola has confirmed Nathan Ake is back available for the home side.
- Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed David de Gea has returned to Spain for the birth of his first child, with Dean Henderson now set for a run in the side.
- Scott McTominay and Victor Lindelof will return to the starting XI on Sunday, while Daniel James will likely reclaim his starting spot as well.
- Paul Pogba, Phil Jones and Juan Mata are ruled out, while Anthony Martial is a doubt with a slight knee injury sustained in training on Monday.
Tottenham Hotspur v Crystal Palace
- Giovani Lo Celso remains Tottenham’s only injury worry, though he will return to action later this month.
- Jose Mourinho made a couple of changes to the side that beat Burnley 4-0 for Thursday’s 1-0 win at Fulham.
- Sergio Reguilon, Serge Aurier and Lucas Moura, all of whom dropped out, may return to the side, though Dele Alli is hoping to keep his spot in attack.
- Roy Hodgson is hoping to have Nathaniel Clyne and Tyrick Micthell back for the trip to Tottenham, but better news is that Wilfried Zaha is fit to start.
- The Crystal Palace boss remains without no fewer than six players for the trip across the capital, including James McCarthy, who was forced off on the hour mark against Manchester United.
- Jairo Riedewald is set to replace McCarthy in the middle of the park in what may be Hodgson’s only change to his XI.
