    • Latest News: Sean Dyche gave quite a lengthy injury update in his Thursday press conference, in which he revealed that both Ashley Barnes (groin) and Ashley Westwood (groin) trained ahead of the Gameweek 17 visit of Newcastle. He stopped short of declaring them fit and available though, explaining that he'd have to see "how they react" but that he was hopeful. The fact that Phil Bardsley (knock) did not train today (although might do on Friday) probably means Matt Lowton will keep his place at right-back, as Dyche usually tends to ease his recently injured players back into the first-team slower than other managers. That is exactly the approach he's taking with Charlie Taylor (hamstring) who he described as "touch and go" but also explained they would "edge on the side of caution". That is, of course, good news for Erik Pieters who looks very likely to hold down the left-back berth in Taylor's absence. Up-front, there might be some issues as Chris Wood was described as "carrying a bit of a knock", although Dyche expects him to "be okay" while Jay Rodriguez has broken his little finger, although it's unlikely to stop him from taking part in the match.

    • Latest News: Roy Hodgson confirmed in his Thursday press conference that Patrick van Aanholt (hamstring), Jeffrey Schlupp (muscle) and Joel Ward (knee) would all miss the Gameweek 16 meeting with rivals Brighton. Ominously, the Crystal Palace manager also reported that there "might be more names added to the (injury) list)" but that he wasn't willing to divulge who they are. That does cast some uncertainty over the Palace squad for Gameweek 16. Either way, the latest update leaves the Eagles without a recognised full-back for the Monday night encounter so should see budget man Martin Kelly guaranteed another start at right-back (as long as he's not one of these other unreported injuries) while defensive midfield/centre-back Jairo Riedewald looks likely to get the nod on the left after replacing the injured Schlupp against Watford. Mamadou Sakho remains suspended following his red card against Bournemouth which makes Gary Cahill and James Tomkins the likely centre-back pairing, although Scott Dann remains available. Hodgson has been loathe to changes in his midfield and attacking trios of late, even in spite of a lack of goals. Therefore, if fit, Wilfried Zaha, Jordan Ayew and Andros Townsend look likely to lead the attack.

    • Latest News: Brendan Rodgers is enjoying a clean bill of health ahead of Leicester's hosting of Norwich, with the exception of long-term absentee Matty James (Achilles injury). However, that does not mean predicting the Foxes' line-up will be as easy as it was a few weeks ago. Against Aston Villa, Rodgers moved away from his favoured formation of 4-1-4-1 to line-up in a 4-3-1-2 system which included Kelechi Iheanacho alongside Jamie Vardy. The switch produced impressive results in the 4-1 victory so there's every chance the same tactics are rolled out against Norwich. If so, it's bad news for the wider midfielders such as Ayoze Pérez, Demarai Gray and Harvey Barnes with Dennis Praet more suited to featuring in the trio with Wilfried Ndidi and Youri Tielemans behind number 10 James Maddison. The back-four is, of course, incredibly settled after four clean sheets in the last five, so Ben Chilwell and Ricardo Pereira look set to flank Jonny Evans and Çaglar Söyüncü in defence.

    • Latest News: There are no fresh injury concerns for Chris Wilder ahead of the Gameweek 17 meeting with Aston Villa, although he hinted that there were some "tired bodies" after the win at Norwich. Whether he will rotate too much this weekend remains to be seen, after changes to his line-up back-fired to some extent in the defeat to Newcastle. Wilder confirmed on Tuesday that there were no ill-effects of Lys Mousset's withdrawal at Carrow Road on Sunday, explaining that the player had missed some training in the build-up to Gameweek 16 having suffered a bereavement back in France and could not last 90 minutes. Therefore, owners of the former Bournemouth forward can feel relatively confident that he'll start against Villa, now that he has lost his yellow flag. Oliver Norwood was also taken off in the second half against Norwich but Wilder confirmed in his Thursday press conference that the withdrawal was to save him from another yellow card. That should see the midfielder keep his place in the central trio with John Lundstram and John Fleck. Defence is never usually an area that the manager rotates if he can help it, so with Enda Stevens, George Baldock, Jack O'Connell, John Egan and Chris Basham all fit, they should start on Saturday afternoon. It's the forward slots that have seen the most rotation this season but the performances of Mousset and David McGoldrick should keep them ahead of Oli McBurnie, Callum Robinson and Billy Sharp in the pecking order.

    • Latest News: Ralph Hasenhüttl revealed in his Thursday press conference that Stuart Armstrong (hamstring) has returned to training and is an option for the Gameweek 17 meeting with West Ham. That will be a boost to the Southampton manager, who continues to manage a toe injury sustained by Sofiane Boufal several weeks ago. The midfielder has been involved in recent matches but Hasenhüttl explained on Thursday that he cannot train without injections and that he will have to see "how he improves" before confirming if he could play a part in Gameweek 17. Thankfully, the Saints boss can still rely on Nathan Redmond and Moussa Djenepo in wide areas if he retains faith in his 4-4-2 system. If that's the case, it could bode well for Shane Long, who has started and provided decent support for the in-form Danny Ings in each of the last two Gameweeks. James Ward-Prowse was preferred in the central midfield pairing again against Newcastle but could feature on the flanks if Hasenhüttl fancies beefing up the middle with Oriol Romeu alongside Pierre-Emile Højbjerg. The Southampton back-line has seemed somewhat settled in recent matches, the manager naming the same four in each of the last four matches. Therefore, Ryan Bertrand, Jan Bednarek, Jack Stephens and Cédric Soares look likely to feature from the beginning against West Ham, Jannik Vestergaard and Maya Yoshida further down the pecking order. On Thursday, Hasenhüttl revealed that Yan Valery has been suffering from a virus infection the last two weeks and does not know when he will return to fitness.

    • Latest News: Lukasz Fabianski (hip) and Manuel Lanzini (shoulder) remain the long-term absentees for West Ham ahead of a trip to Southampton, while Jack Wilshere (abdominal injury) is still in some pain accroding to Manuel Pellegrini in Thursday's press conference. The Hammers manager also confirmed that Winston Reid is now "working without problems" so might stand a chance of edging closer to the matchday squad in light of recent defensive problems. There was no update on Aaron Cresswell (knock) following his forced departure against Arsenal which might suggest he can come straight back in at left-back, considering Arthur Masuaku did not play particularly well in his absence. As ever, there are a number of options in midfield and attack for Pellegrini. Michail Antonio has occupied the centre-forward position in two of the last three matches but Sébastien Haller remains available. Pablo Fornals now has two assists in his last three so may fancy his chances of retaining a berth on the left flank of attacking midfield. Felipe Anderson, Robert Snodgrass (and, potentially, Antonio if Haller starts) will compete with the other two spots with Andriy Yarmolenko, who was left out of the Gameweek 16 squad a with a back problem, although Pellegrini did not mention him in the Thursday press conference.
