SWANSEA VS. LEICESTER

SOUTHAMPTON VS. WEST BROM
SOUTHAMPTON: Mauricio Pellegrino has reported no fresh injury concerns. Manolo Gabbiadini will be hoping to retain his place in attack after scoring both goals in last weekend’s 2-2 draw against Newcastle. Full-back Jeremy Pied continues to work his way back to full fitness from a groin injury.
Provisional Squad: Forster, Soares, Yoshida, Van Dijk, Bertrand, Long, Romeu, Redmond, Lemina, Tadic, Gabbiadini, McCarthy, McQueen, Ward-Prowse, Hoedt, Austin, Boufal, Davis.
WEST BROM : The Baggies are hopeful either Ben Foster or Boaz Myhill will be fit. Foster missed the draw at Leicester with a knee injury so Myhill made his first Premier League start since April 2016 but finished the game hobbling around with a hamstring problem. Both players trained on Thursday and it is hoped they will do so again on Friday before the squad travel to the south coast. James Morrison, Oliver Burke and Hal Robson-Kanu remain out with muscle injuries.

EVERTON VS. ARSENAL
EVERTON: James McCarthy could make his first-team comeback having recovered from a knee injury. Fellow midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin limped off during Thursday’s 2-1 Europa League loss to Lyon but is expected to be able to feature. Wayne Rooney, Leighton Baines and Phil Jagielka are set to return to the matchday squad after being rested for the game against the French side, along with Oumar Niasse, who was ineligible on Thursday.
Provisional squad: Pickford, Stekelenburg, Williams, Keane, Jagielka, Holgate, Martina, Baines, Schneiderlin, Gueye, Besic, McCarthy, Klaassen, Sigurdsson, Rooney, Davies, Vlasic, Lookman, Mirallas, Sandro, Calvert-Lewin, Niasse.
ARSENAL: Arsene Wenger will make a raft of changes from the 1-0 win at Red Star Belgrade in the Europa League, but will be without forward Danny Welbeck. Wenger will hope both Laurent Koscielny and Aaron Ramsey will be fit enough to be in contention. Alexis Sanchez, Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette will be in line to start but Welbeck (groin) is missing, as are Calum Chambers (hip), Shkodran Mustafi (hamstring) and Santi Cazorla (ankle).
Provisional squad: Cech, Ospina, Mertesacker, Holding, Koscielny, Monreal, Debuchy, Bellerin, Nelson, Kolasinac, Maitland-Niles, Ramsey, Wilshere, Xhaka, Elneny, Coquelin, Ozil, Giroud, Walcott, Sanchez, Iwobi, Lacazette.
TOTTENHAM VS. LIVERPOOL
TOTTENHAM: Danny Rose could make his first Premier League appearance in almost nine months, having been out with a knee injury. He is unlikely to start at Wembley but could be named among the substitutes again. Ben Davies has recovered from illness and Dele Alli is back after serving a Champions League suspension. Mousa Dembele (hip) and Victor Wanyama (knee) are both out, however, while the game will also come too soon for Erik Lamela, who is close to overcoming an injury to his hips.
Provisional squad: Lloris, Vorm, Gazzaniga, Rose, Davies, Walker-Peters, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Sanchez, Foyth, Trippier, Aurier, Dier, Sissoko, Georgiou, Oakley-Boothe, Alli, Eriksen, Son, Llorente, Kane.
LIVERPOOL: Jordan Henderson is set for a recall, meaning that James Milner could well miss out despite his impressive performance at Maribor. Simon Mignolet will return in goal and Joe Gomez could come into defence as Jurgen Klopp continues to rotate his young full-backs.
Provisional squad: Mignolet, Gomez, Lovren, Matip, Moreno, Henderson, Can, Wijnaldum, Salah, Firmino, Coutinho, Karius, Alexander-Arnold, Klavan, Robertson, Milner, Grujic, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Sturridge, Solanke.
