    • Latest News…Arsene Wenger has confirmed he will make “one or two changes” but believes the XI will be similar to the one that started against Sunderland in midweek. After naming an unchanged side for six successive matches, Wenger made a couple of alterations in midweek, bringing in Jack Wilshere and Kieran Gibbs for Francis Coquelin and Nacho Monreal, and the former two will be hoping to retain their places for the visit of West Brom. Theo Walcott has made a series of appearances off the bench and will be pushing for a starting berth, whilst the likes of Tomas Rosicky, Gabriel, Calum Chambers and Mathieu Flamini afford Wenger the option to freshen things up ahead of the Wembley clash. Mikel Arteta and Danny Welbeck remain sidelined, whilst Mathieu Debuchy and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have returned to training but are short of match fitness.

    • Latest News…Tim Sherwood will be in two minds whether to freshen up his side for the visit of Burnley. The Villa boss will clearly have one eye on next weekend’s FA Cup final but, at the same time, will be desperate to regain momentum after last Saturday’s 6-1 humiliation at Southampton. Sherwood made just one enforced change at St Mary’s, with Alan Hutton replacing the injured Kieran Richardson at left-back, and the Scot, or Matt Lowton, could be handed a start if Richardson remains injured. Hutton could switch to the right if Sherwood looks to hand Leandro Bacuna a rest, whilst the likes of Carlos Sanchez, Gabby Agbonlahor, Andreas Weimann, Scott Sinclair, Philippe Senderos and Brad Guzan will be hoping to earn a start and boost their cup final prospects. Nathan Baker stepped up his recovery with a run-out for the reserves in midweek but Sherwood is unlikely to risk him.

    • Latest News…Sam Vokes could return to the starting XI after appearing off the bench last week. The forward looks in line to partner Danny Ings up front, allowing Ashley Barnes to take up the left flank role, though Matt Taylor and Michael Kightly also offer options out wide. Along with Vokes and Kightly, the likes of Stephen Ward, Fredrick Ulvestad, Michael Keane and Lukasz Jutkiewicz were named amongst the subs last weekend and will be hoping for pitch time in the Clarets’ final match before dropping into the Championship.

  4. Chelsea

    • Latest News…Cesc Fabregas is suspended for the visit of Sunderland after being dismissed against West Brom on Monday evening. Eden Hazard is a real doubt after picking up an infection following dental surgery on wisdom teeth in midweek, with Jose Mourinho admitting he doesn’t know if the Belgian will be fit in time. The Blues boss had previously confirmed he plans to play his regulars for this one, though the Spaniard’s absence should see Willian fielded centrally behind the lone striker, with the likes of Loic Remy and Juan Cuadrado fighting it out for the role on the right. Remy, along with Didier Drogba, also offers an alternative up top, though Diego Costa could retain his starting berth after returning from injury at the Hawthorns. Alternatively, Cuadrado could be shifted left if Hazard fails to make it. Ruben Loftus-Cheek has started the last two but could drop out if Mourinho opts for John Obi-Mikel alongside Nemanja Matic in Fabregas’ absence. Cesar Azpilicueta will be looking to oust Filipe Luis on the left after a couple of appearances on the bench, whilst Petr Cech remains a doubt, with his manager admitting he’s uncertain whether the veteran will start ahead of Thibaut Courtois. Mourinho is also hoping to hand youngsters Andreas Christensen and Jeremie Boga pitch time against the Black Cats, though Kurt Zouma, Oscar and Ramires are still sidelined through injury.

    • Latest News…Wilfried Zaha and Glenn Murray will be looking to return to the starting XI after scoring as second-half substitutes in last week’s win over Liverpool. Alan Pardew started with a 4-4-2 at Anfield, with Yannick Bolasie fielded up front alongside Marouane Chamakh, but could revert to a 4-2-3-1 for the visit of Swansea, with Jason Puncheon shifted from the flank back into a central role behind the lone striker. Mile Jedinak is likely to replace either Joe Ledley or James McArthur in central midfield, whilst Lee Chung-Yong could be set to drop out after being afforded a start on the left at Anfield. Jordon Mutch will be pushing for pitch time after appearing off the bench last weekend. Damien Delaney could come back in for Martin Kelley in central defence, with the latter vying with Pape Souare for the left-back berth. Julian Speroni is rested for this one, as Pardew wants to ensure the keeper is fit for his club testimonial next Tuesday.

    • Latest News…With Leighton Baines ruled out for the season after undergoing ankle surgery, Brendan Galloway filled in at left-back last time out. Roberto Martinez may elect to roll with the Toffees youngster again or instead select Luke Garbutt for the visit of Tottenham. Aaron Lennon is ineligible to play against his parent club, which could see Kevin Mirallas – who’s been the first man off the bench in Everton’s recent fixtures – reinstated on the right flank. Sylvain Distin is poised for a cameo in his final game for Everton if he can recover from illness, while Antolin Alcaraz is not in contention for this encounter. Elsewhere, Steven Pienaar and Tony Hibbert haven’t recovered in time for the Spurs clash, and Bryan Oviedo and Darron Gibson are the long-term absentees.

    • Latest News…Steve Bruce has confirmed he has the same squad as last weekend as he prepares for the visit of Man United. Jake Livermore has been suspended for failing a drugs test, which should see David Meyler handed a second start in the former Spurs midfielder’s vacated berth. Nikica Jelavic was handed a start alongside Dame N'Doye after stepping up his fitness following injury and with their survival on the line, the Croatian looks set to retain his starting berth. Andrew Robertson and Abel Hernandez will be pushing for pitch time after appearing off the bench last time out. Curtis Davies is still sidelined, whilst Mohamed Diame and Gaston Ramirez both recently underwent surgery, rendering them long-term absentees alongside Robert Snodgrass.

    • Latest News…With David Nugent ruled out again due to an ongoing calf injury, Nigel Pearson could name the same XI as last weekend, fielding Jamie Vardy and Leonardo Ulloa as strike partners in a 3-4-1-2 set-up for the third match in succession. This would allow Riyad Mahrez to retain his starting role behind the front two. Yet with Leicester’s top-flight status now secured, the Foxes boss may choose to afford fringe players some minutes, with Danny Drinkwater, Andrej Kramaric and Dean Hammond all pushing for starts. Mathew James was ruled out for between six to nine months after suffering ruptured ligaments against Southampton.

    • Banned:
    • Latest News…Mario Balotelli is the only doubt for Liverpool ahead of their Stoke trip. The Reds could conceivably drop two places on Sunday if results elsewhere conspire against them, so Brendan Rodgers is unlikely to enact wholesale changes. Nonetheless, youth striker Jerome Sinclair made his first league appearances for Liverpool in their last two outings and could be set for an increased role against the Potters, whilst Rickie Lambert will be hoping to return to the XI after being dropped to the bench last weekend. Mamadou Sakho is expected to be available following a hamstring complaint and might reclaim a starting berth to the detriment of Dejan Lovren. On another note, Rodgers insisted that Raheem Sterling is available for selection despite the furore surrounding his desire to leave the Merseysiders in the summer. Jordan Rossiter, Daniel Sturridge and John Flanagan remain out for the long term.

    • Latest News…Samir Nasri has been ruled out for the remainder of the season with a groin injury and is joined on the sidelines by Fernando. Manuel Pellegrini is likely to name an unchanged XI, with James Milner getting the nod of Jesus Navas on the right again. Frank Lampard should retain his spot if City keep a 4-2-3-1 system, though Wilfried Bony, Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic offer alternatives if Pellegrini rolls out a 4-4-2. Vincent Kompany and Gael Clichy could be set for bench roles again, then, with Eliaquim Mangala and Aleksandar Kolarov retained in the beck-four.

    • Latest News…Wayne Rooney is fit and available for the trip to the KC Stadium after recovering from a leg injury and is likely to be handed the lone striker role. David de Gea was forced off against the Gunners with a hip injury and remains a doubt, so Victor Valdes could make his first Premier League start. Ashley Young’s form should see him keep his place in the starting XI, although with United very unlikely to move past Arsenal into third place, Van Gaal could hand Angel di Maria or Adnan Januzaj a rare start. With few alternatives in midfield, Daley Blind, Ander Herrera and Marouane Fellaini should keep their starting berths. The back four could also remain unchanged, with Jonny Evans a doubt for the final match of the season. Paddy McNair and Tyler Blackett will provide cover in defence. Luke Shaw, Rafael and Michael Carrick remain out, whilst Andreas Pereira is still unavailable because of international commitments with the Brazilian Under 20 squad.

    • Latest News…Papiss Cisse played 28 minutes as a substitute against QPR last week, and with so much at stake for Newcastle, he may be thrust into the starting line-up for the crucial home clash against West Ham despite lacking match fitness. The Senegal international would most likely replace Emmanuel Riviére, with Ayoze Pérez, Moussa Sissoko and Remy Cabella continuing in the three attacking midfield positions in John Carver’s preferred 4-2-3-1 formation. Jonas Gutiérrez has played the last two matches, but with Mike Williamson available again after serving a two-match suspension, Paul Dummett could be moved to left-back. Ryan Taylor and Jack Colback look set to continue in the double-pivot, with Vurnon Anita a doubt. Massadio Haidara, Steven Taylor, Cheick Tiote and Adam Armstrong remain on the sidelines. Siem de Jong has stepped up his recovery and could be named amongst the subs.

Chris Ramsey has hinted a may give a few young players an opportunity against Leicester, so Reece Grego-Cox could start out wide having replaced Junior Hoilett at half-time last week, while Darnell Furlong may also be handed an opportunity. Steven Caulker has been playing with a broken hand and is set to miss out, which would mean Clint Hill moving to centre-back, with Suk Young-Yun starting at left-back. Bobby Zamora remains a doubt, so Leroy Fer could continue “in the hole” behind Charlie Austin. Rio Ferdinand, Sandro, Armand Traore, Adel Taarabt, Alejandro Faurlin, Eduardo Vargas and Mauro Zarate are all ruled out.

    • Latest News…Following the emphatic 6-1 victory against Aston Villa, Ronald Koeman will be reluctant to make many changes for the trip to the Etihad. The Dutchman does has some options in the attacking areas, with Eljero Elia and Filip Djuricic both available, while Maya Yoshida could come into the back four if Toby Alderweireld plays alongside Victor Wanyama at the base of midfield in Koeman’s favored 4-2-3-1 formation. Kelvin Davis is set to return in goal ahead of Paulo Gazzaniga to make his 300th appearance for the club. Fraser Forster, Morgan Schneiderlin, Dusan Tadic and Emmanuel Mayuka remain out, while Jay Rodriguez is still lacking match sharpness.

Following back-to-back clean sheets against Tottenham and Burnley, the back four could remain unchanged, with Phil Bardsley and Philipp Wollscheid set to be among the substitutes once again. Ireland and Peter Odemwingie offer alternative options further forward, with Mame Biram Diouf set to play as the lone striker once again in Hughes’ usual 4-2-3-1 system. Asmir Begovic returns in goal, with Jack Butland dropping to the bench.

Elsewhere, Seb Larsson has recovered from a midweek knock, though Danny Graham is rated doubtful due to an ankle injury. Jack Rodwell and Steven Fletcher replaced Connor Wickham and Graham at half-time at the Emirates and could get a start this time around, whilst Adam Johnson will be hopeful of retaining his place in the XI. Will Buckley will also be pushing for pitch time after appearing off the bench last time out. At the back, Anthony Réveillere and Santiago Vergini could come into the mix if the former Rangers manager looks to make changes at the back. Wes Brown, Jordi Gomez, Liam Bridcutt and Ricardo Alvarez all miss out.

Angel Rangel missed out against Manchester City with a knock, but is available again, although Jazz Richards may keep his place in the starting XI. Ki Sung-yueng has joined Jordi Amat, Tom Carroll, Wayne Routledge and Nélson Oliveira and on the sidelines due to a knee injury, but Kyle Naughton has returned to training, although he is unlikely to feature against Palace.

    • Latest News…Mauricio Pochettino has kept changes to a minimum in recent weeks, so it could be a similar Tottenham side that line up against Everton, particularly following the 2-0 win against Hull. If the Argentine does look to make some changes, he could hand DeAndre Yedlin his first Premier League start at Goodison Park, while Christian Eriksen has been substituted before the hour mark in two of Spurs’ last three matches, which could mean a rare start for the likes of Mousa Dembélé or Andros Townsend. Vlad Chiriches is back from suspension, but is unlikely to force his way back into the starting XI. Ben Davies and Kyle Walker all still on the sidelines, while Emmanuel Adebayor has returned home to Togo for family reasons. Michel Vorm is a doubt due to illness.

Craig Gardner came on for Callum McManaman after 54 minutes against the Blues and could replace the former Wigan man. The likes of Youssuf Mulumbu, Brown Ideye and Victor Anichebe will be hoping for a recall, but with Pulis expected to go with a 4-5-1 formation away from the Hawthorns after opting for a slightly more offensive 4-3-3 at home on Monday night, Saido Berahino looks likely to be the lone striker once again. Ben Foster is the only long-term absentee.

Kevin Nolan may miss out against his former club because of personal reasons, so the likes of Nene, Morgan Amalfitano and Matt Jarvis could come into contention if Big Sam looks to make changes, with Carlton Cole the most likely to make way. Guy Demel, Diafra Sakho and Andy Carroll remain on the sidelines.

“All players will blank a few times during the season. When almost all do it in the same Gameweek, it is tough to take, but that's just the dark side of probability.”
