    • Latest News: Laurent Koscielny, Aaron Ramsey and Alexis Sanchez are all "alright" according to Arsene Wenger, ahead of the trip to Everton. Sanchez could join Alex Iwobi in the advanced midfield positions in the 3-4-2-1 formation, with Danny Welbeck ruled out with a groin injury which is likely to keep him out until after the international break. Mesut Ozil and Ramsey provide other options. Alexandre Lacazette is expected to continue as the lone striker, with Olivier Giroud the alternative. After failing to impress last weekend, Mohamed Elneny could drop to the bench, seeing Ramsey partner Granit Xhaka in central midfield. Jack Wilshere and Francis Coquelin are other options. Hector Bellerin and Sead Kolasinac should continue in the wing-back positions, with Koscielny, Per Mertesacker and Nacho Montreal the probable starters in the back three. Rob Holding is the main alternative. Calum Chambers (hip) and Shkodran Mustafi (thigh) are out, while Santi Cazorla is a long-term absentee.

    • Latest News: After opting for a defensive 5-3-2 formation against Tottenham Hotspur, Cherries boss Eddie Howe could switch to a more attacking 4-2-3-1 or 4-4-1-1 system for the trip to Stoke City. Either Jermain Defoe or Benik Afobe may return as the lone striker, then, leaving Josh King in a support striker role. Alternatively, King could be used as the lone forward, with Junior Stanislas in a central support role. That would perhaps leave Jordon Ibe and Marc Pugh as the starters out wide should Stanislas be used centrally, with Ryan Fraser (hamstring) remaining a doubt. One of Lewis Cook, Dan Gosling and Andrew Surman appear likely to drop to the bench, while Harry Arter also appears to have fallen down the pecking order in central midfield. In defence, Charlie Daniels and Nathan Ake look sure starters, leaving Simon Francis, Adam Smith and Steve Cook to battle it out for the final two places. Adam Federici, Brad Smith and Tyrone Mings remain out, but Callum Wilson is building up his match fitness with the U23s, and is close to a first-team return.

    • Latest News: Sean Dyche has the same squad available to him from last weekend’s 1-1 draw with West Ham United for the trip to Manchester City. Given the form of the league leaders, Sean Dyche is likely to deploy a 4-5-1 formation, with Jeff Hendrick dropping back alongside Jack Cork and Steven Defour in central midfield. Johann Berg Gudmundsson came off the bench to produce an assist against the Hammers, but the more defensive-minded Scott Arfield may again be preferred for one of the wide spots. Robbie Brady should retain his start on the opposite flank, with Chris Wood expected to be favoured over Sam Vokes as the lone striker. The usual back four of Matthew Lowton, Ben Mee, James Tarkowski and Stephen Ward should stay unchanged, with Charlie Taylor and Kevin Long providing cover. Tom Heaton, Dean Marney, Jon Walters and Nakhi Wells are all out, although Marney and Wells are firmly on the comeback trail.

    • Latest News: Antonio Conte revealed he has doubts over "several players" ahead of the home clash against Watford, with David Luiz (calf), Victor Moses (hamstring) and Tiemoue Bakayoko (groin) all concerns. If Luiz is ruled out, one of either Antonio Rudiger or Andreas Christensen look set to join Cesar Azpilicueta and Gary Cahill in the three-man defence. Davide Zappacosta could start at right wing-back, leaving Marcos Alonso on the opposite flank. Should both Luiz and Bakayoko be ruled out, Conte looks desperately short of midfield options. Youngster Kyle Scott could be on standby to partner Cesc Fabregas in the middle of the park. Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata should both start in attack, although both players are coming back from injury lay-offs, and still need to be managed carefully. After only playing 10 minutes against Roma, Willian may be preferred to Pedro in order to provide some freshness to the side. Michy Batshuayi and Charly Musonda provide further attacking options. Danny Drinkwater (calf) is still out, although he is back in light training, while N’Golo Kante (hamstring) is still sidelined.

    • Latest News: Wayne Hennessey is available again after missing the 2-1 win over Chelsea due to a knock picked up while on international duty, and looks set to replace Julian Speroni in goal for the trip to Newcastle United. Ruben Loftus-Cheek is available again after being ineligible to play in Gameweek 8, and has recovered from a minor groin problem. But following their first win of the season, he may not necessarily come straight back into the starting XI. Roy Hodgson used a 4-4-2 formation against the champions, with the fit-again Wilfried Zaha joining Andros Townsend in attack. James McArthur, Yohan Cabaye, Luka Milivojevic and Jeffrey Schlupp lined up across midfield. One option could be to move Townsend back onto the right wing in place of McArthur, allowing Loftus-Cheek to operate just behind Zaha in a 4-4-1-1 system. The back four of Joel Ward, Scott Dann, Mamadou Sakho and Patrick van Aanholt is expected to remain unchanged, with Timothy Fosu-Mensah the main back-up option. Christian Benteke and Connor Wickham remain out.

    • Latest News: Ronald Koeman faces some tough choices as to who to start in attack for the home clash against Arsenal. Nikola Vlasic, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Dominic Calvert-Lewin started in the attacking midfield positions behind lone striker Wayne Rooney last weekend in the 1-1 draw with Brighton & Hove Albion. But Sigurdsson could easily move to the left, and Rooney to the No 10 role, to allow Calvert-Lewin to start in attack. Rooney, Leighton Baines and Phil Jagielka were all rested on Thursday night, and should return to face the Gunners. Oumar Niasse, Tom Davies, Davy Klaassen, Sandro Ramirez, Kevin Mirallas and Ademola Lookman are all possible options in the front four positions for the Everton boss. Idrissa Gueye and Morgan Schneiderlin should both keep their places in central midfield, with Koeman revealing Schneiderlin is in contention, despite not being able to train on Friday after picking up a leg injury in the 2-1 defeat to Lyon. The back four of Mason Holgate, Michael Keane, Jagielka and Baines may also stay unchanged. Cuco Martina and Ashley Williams provide viable alternatives to Holgate and Jagielka. Seamus Coleman, Ramiro Funes Mori, Ross Barkley and Yannick Bolasie are long-term absentees, while James McCarthy is now fit for selection following a knee injury.

    • Latest News: Steve Mounie has trained all week following a heel injury, and will be in the squad for the home clash against Manchester United. But Philip Billing suffered a serious ankle injury last weekend, and faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines. Should Mounie be lacking match sharpness, having missed the last four league matches, Laurent Depoitre could be an option to continue as the lone striker. Aaron Mooy only featured off the bench against Swansea City following his international exploits with Australia, so he should take Billing’s place in central midfield. Danny Williams provides a possible alternative to Jonathan Hogg. The attacking midfield trio of Rajiv van La Parra, Tom Ince and Elias Kachunga may stay unchanged, with Abdelhamid Sabiri the obvious alternative. Scott Malone was handed his first league start of the campaign last weekend at left-back, but Chris Lowe remains a viable option in that position. Mathias ‘Zanka’ Jorgensen, Christopher Schindler and Tommy Smith should keep their places elsewhere in the back four. Michael Hefele, Jon Stankovic, Kasey Palmer and Collin Quaner are likely to remain sidelined.

Appleton has options in attack, with both Shinji Okazaki and Islam Slimani possible alternatives to Kelechi Iheanacho. Jamie Vardy should hold onto his starting berth up front. In midfield, Andy King and Demarai Gray are the two players likely to challenge for a start, after Riyad Mahrez, Vicente Iborra, Wilfred Ndidi and Marc Albrighton got the nod in Monday night’s 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion. Changes are probably less likely at the back, with Christian Fuchs, Wes Morgan, Harry Maguire and Danny Simpson all regular starters. Ben Chilwell provides the main back-up option. Robert Huth (knock) remains out, while Matty James is a long-term absentee.

The Reds boss rested both Joe Gomez and Jordan Henderson on Tuesday night, so they both look set to return, seeing Trent Alexander-Arnold and James Milner miss out. Alberto Moreno, Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren should retain their starts in defence, with Ragnar Klavan and Andrew Robertson the back-up options. Emre Can and Georginio Wijnaldum look set to join Henderson in the three-man midfield, leaving Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah in attack. Milner and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are the main alternatives in midfield, while Daniel Sturridge provides another option up front. Nathaniel Clyne and Adam Lallana remain sidelined.

    • Latest News: With Pep Guardiola generally sticking with a settled starting XI this season, changes may again be kept to a minimum for the home clash against Burnley. While he was named among the substitutes in City’s last two matches following a rib injury, Sergio Aguero hasn’t been handed any pitch time. After Leroy Sane played 90 minutes against Napoli on Tuesday night, he appears the most at risk of missing out to the Argentine. Raheem Sterling was replaced after 70 minutes, while Gabriel Jesus has only played 149 minutes over the last two matches in all competitions. In central midfield, Ilkay Gundogan and Yaya Toure are the rotation options to replace Fernandinho, David Silva and Kevin De Bruyne. Danilo is a viable alternative to full-backs Kyle Walker and Fabian Delph, but with Vincent Kompany still doubtful due to a calf problem, John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi should continue in central defence. Benjamin Mendy is a long-term absentee.

    • Latest News: Marcus Rashford is available for the trip to Huddersfield Town after recovering from a minor knee problem in midweek, while Phil Jones, who has been dealing with a knock for a number of weeks, should be fit to start after being an unused substitute against Benfica. He is likely to partner Chris Smalling in central defence, with Victor Lindelof the main alternative. After playing on the right wing last weekend, Ashley Young could return to left-back with Matteo Darmian possibly replacing Antonio Valencia at right-back after his 90 minutes in midweek. Both Young and Darmian were unused substitutes in Benfica. Mourinho doesn't have the luxury of options in central midfield, so both Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic should continue at the base of midfield in the 4-2-3-1 formation. Given Rashford played 76 minutes on Wednesday night, compared to 14 for Anthony Martial, it's the Frenchman who is the favourite to start on the left wing, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Juan Mata perhaps taking the other two attacking midfield spots. Jesse Lingard does provide a viable alternative if Mkhitaryan is in need of a rest. The Armenian wasn't pictured with the rest of the squad at the team hotel on Friday afternoon, and could be left out. Romelu Lukaku should again start as the lone striker. Eric Bailly and Michael Carrick (both knocks) will miss out once again, while Marcos Rojo, Marouane Fellaini, Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are still out.

In any case, the forward was extremely unlikely to start, with Joselu currently occupying the lone striker role, and Ayoze Perez acting as the support striker in the 4-4-1-1 formation. Isaac Hayden replaced Mikel Merino in central midfield alongside Jonjo Shelvey for the 2-2 draw at Southampton, but the Spaniard could return this weekend. Similarly, Ciaran Clark may be handed a recall in central defence in place of Florian Lejeune. Matt Ritchie and Christian Atsu should retain their starts out wide in midfield, with Jacob Murphy the main alternative. In the full-back positions, DeAndre Yedlin and Javier Manquillo are the favourites to keep their starting spots, with Chancel Mbemba currently out of the picture. Jesus Gamez provides cover. Paul Dummett and Massadio Haidara remain out, although the latter is back in training.

Dusan Tadic and Nathan Redmond look set to retain their starts out wide, although Sofiane Boufal is putting pressure on Redmond for a place in the side. Steven Davis and James Ward-Prowse provide further options. Mario Lemina and Oriol Romeu are expected to retain their starts at the base of midfield, while the back four of Cedric Soares, Maya Yoshida, Virgil van Dijk and Ryan Bertrand may also remain unchanged. Wesley Hoedt provides the main alternative in central defence. Jeremy Pied is the only absentee.

Mame Biram Diouf and Erik Pieters are the favourites to occupy the wing-back roles if Mark Hughes reverts back to a 3-4-2-1 formation. Xherdan Shaqiri is a doubt after sustaining a sprained ankle – he could be replaced by Ibrahim Afellay, though Hughes could play Jese Rodriguez and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting in the central support roles. This could see Peter Crouch, Saido Berahino or even the in-form Diouf handed the lone striker position.

Those two, along with Sam Clucas, look to be fighting it out for one midfield spot alongside Leon Britton and Tom Carroll. Clement switched to a 4-3-3 formation against the Terriers, and after recording a first home win of the season, Luciano Narsingh, Tammy Abraham and Jordan Ayew are expected to lead the attack once again, particularly as Wilfried Bony remains out due to a hamstring injury. Nathan Dyer provides a possible alternative to Narsingh, although he’s likely to continue his comeback from injury as a substitute. The settled back four of Kyle Naughton, Federico Fernandez, Alfie Mawson and Martin Olsson should stay unchanged, with Angel Rangel and Mike van der Hoorn providing cover. Kyle Bartley remains out.

    • Latest News: After missing the last two matches due to illness, Ben Davies has returned to training ahead of the home encounter against Liverpool. While Mauricio Pochettino started with a 4-2-3-1 formation against Bournemouth, he is likely to revert back to his favoured 3-4-2-1 against a top-six rival, with Davies likely to return at left wing-back. Danny Rose played 10 minutes as a substitute against Real Madrid following a long-term knee injury, but probably isn’t ready to come up against the Reds, and in particular Mohamed Salah. So Davinson Sanchez, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen should start in a back three, with Kieran Tripper expected to start at right wing-back after Serge Aurier got the 90 minutes in the UEFA Champions League. Harry Winks has started the last two Premier League matches in central midfield, but the physicality of Moussa Sissoko may be preferred in this fixture alongside Eric Dier in central midfield. Mousa Dembele has suffered a fresh hip injury, and is being assessed. Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli are expected to line up in the advanced midfield positions behind lone striker Harry Kane. Son Heung-min provides an alternative out wide if Pochettino opts for a 4-2-3-1 once again, with Vertonghen an option to start at left-back in that system if Davies isn’t available. Georges-Kevin Nkoudou is available again, but Victor Wanyama (knee) remains out. Erik Lamela is lacking match fitness, and is not expected to feature.

    • Latest News: Marco Silva will pick from the same pool of players for the trip to Chelsea, with Younes Kaboul and Sebastian Prodl set to return to team training next week. The Hornets head coach started with a back three against Arsenal last weekend, before switching to his favoured 4-2-3-1. He may stick with his preferred system at Stamford Bridge, which would likely see Andre Carrillo return on the right wing, and Tom Cleverley to the No 10 role, leaving Richarlison on the left. Silva faces a tricky decision on who to start as the lone striker, with Troy Deeney pushing for a start after making a significant impact from the bench after replacing Andre Gray in the 2-1 win over Arsenal. Should Cleverley be used further forward, Etienne Capoue should return next to Abdoulaye Doucoure at the base of midfield. After being replaced last weekend, Adrian Mariappa may have slipped back behind Miguel Britos in the pecking order of centre-backs. Christian Kabasele is expected to retain his start. Full-backs Kiko Femenia and Jose Holebas should also keep their starting spots, with Daryl Janmaat the main alternative. Craig Cathcart, Nathaniel Chalobah and Isaac Success are long-term absentees.

    • Latest News: Ben Foster (knee) and Boaz Myhill (leg) have both trained ahead of the trip to Southampton, though Tony Pulis is uncertain as to whether either will be available. Alex Palmer will be on standby to start in goal. Craig Dawson, Jonny Evans and Kieran Gibbs all appear sure starters in defence, with Gareth McAuley and Allan Nyom possible alternatives to Ahmed Hegazi. If Nyom is included in the starting XI at right-back, Dawson would move across to centre-back. Pulis lined up with a 4-1-4-1 formation on Monday night, so if he sticks with that system, Jake Livermore may continue in front of the back four, leaving Gareth Barry and Grzegorz Krychowiak in central midfield. Matt Phillips was surprisingly dropped to the bench against Leicester, but he could return, with Jay Rodriguez an option to start in place of Salomon Rondon up front. Nacer Chadli impressed on his first start of the season on the left wing, and may continue to keep Chris Brunt and James McClean out of the side. James Morrison (calf), Hal Robson-Kanu (muscle problem) and Oliver Burke (hamstring) all look set to miss out.

    • Latest News: Chicharito was expected to train on Thursday afternoon after suffering from some tightness in his hamstring, and providing he gets through the session, should be okay to start against Brighton & Hove Albion. Slaven Bilic will be without the suspended Andy Carroll, while Diafra Sakho is out due to a back injury. Andre Ayew will provide the main alternative should the Mexican not be risked. After starting in a deeper midfield role last weekend, Manuel Lanzini may be utilised as a No 10 if Bilic opts for a 4-2-3-1 formation, with Michail Antonio and Marko Arnautovic perhaps starting out wide. That means either Mark Noble or Pedro Obiang could be handed a recall alongside Cheikhou Kouyate in central midfield. Pablo Zabaleta, Winston Reid, Jose Fonte and Aaron Cresswell all look set to start in defence once more. James Collins (ankle) remains out, but both he and Sakho could return to contention for Gameweek 10. Adrian has recovered from illness, and may be named among the substitutes.
