    Southampton will recall players such as Jose Fonte, Charlie Austin and Steven Davis, who began on the bench against Inter Milan on Thursday. Shane Long, Cedric Soares, Matt Targett and Alex McCarthy remain injured.

  9. Everton keeper set to be available

    Premier League team news: Chelsea v Everton (Saturday, 17:30 GMT)

    Everton goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg has overcome a foot injury, while Enner Valencia returns after being ineligible to face parent club West Ham. Idrissa Gueye serves a one-match ban for accumulating five yellow cards, and Leighton Baines and James McCarthy remain sidelined by hamstring problems.

  10. Stoke without suspended Arnautovic

    West Ham v Stoke (Saturday, 15:00 GMT)

    West Ham defender Winston Reid serves a one-match ban for accumulating five yellow cards, although a hamstring injury would have kept him out anyway. Diafra Sakho and Andy Carroll should be fit after the international break.

    Stoke are without forward Marko Arnautovic, who serves a one-match ban for accumulating five bookings. Xherdan Shaqiri is a doubt after being withdrawn during Monday's win over Swansea because of tight hamstrings, while Geoff Cameron is set to miss out.

    Manchester City midfielder Fernandinho is a fitness doubt after being substituted with a knock against Barcelona in midweek. Kevin De Bruyne and Vincent Kompany, who were on the bench at West Brom last week, could be recalled.

    Middlesbrough are bolstered by the return from injury of Cristhian Stuani and Marten de Roon. Dani Ayala remains a doubt because of an ankle injury, while Gaston Ramirez is suspended.

  13. Sunderland without captain and manager

    Premier League team news: Bournemouth v Sunderland (Saturday, 15:00 GMT)

    Bournemouth will be without midfielder Andrew Surman because of a hamstring injury so Dan Gosling could come in, while winger Junior Stanislas has been struggling with a calf problem. 

    Sunderland manager David Moyes will be serving a one-game touchline ban and will also be without captain John O'Shea because of a hamstring injury. Centre-half O'Shea was forced out of last week's home defeat to Arsenal shortly before half-time so Papy Djilobodji, who replaced the Irishman, could return to the starting line-up.

    Jeremy Simmonds: Algeria beating West Germany in the 1982 World Cup - if we're allowed internationals. (The only downside was that the Germans and Austria then conspired to eliminate the Algerians.)
