Hull City : A knee injury will keep Mo Diame out of the Stoke game [and probably the Sunderland match midweek] - Manchester City : No fresh injury concerns for as Pellegrini states "the whole squad is fit" - Everton : John Stones & Aaron Lennon will return to the squad "otherwise [it will remain] the same for Arsenal. We expect Atsu back for the Stoke game" Romelu Lukaku is fine & trained on Friday morning but "Hibbert has damaged a muscle behind his knee and will be out for a couple more weeks" Aidan McGeady, Steven Pienaar & Bryan Oviedo are all ruled out. Darron Gibson may be rested "we're delighted to have him back & need to make sure we look after him" - Southampton : Toby Alderweireld [hamstring] will not recover in time to face West Brom this weekend but Koeman says the defender is "close" to returning & could be back next Tuesday "He is the last player who has to come back other than Rodriguez & [Emmanuel] Mayuka. That's important" while the boss says the issue with Sadio Mané is over "I punished the player. After that day, it's like before – no problem" Elia will face a late fitness test after picking up a leg injury against Liverpool - Stoke City : Hughes "Shawcross is having a bit of time away from the club, resting. We're reasonably happy but we feel now he would be best served with complete rest rather than aggravating the back. The key is that we try to avoid an Op. We're hoping this period of rest and recovery will help. We aren't putting a time-scale but he certainly won't be available for the two forthcoming games" - Arsenal : Aaron Ramsey & Mathieu Flamini are nearly fit, the pair will return to training on Saturday but will not be considered for the Everton game - the pair could make the squad for the midweek trip to Loftus Road. Jack Wilshere "had minor" ankle surgery which will keep him out for a few days - West Ham : Sam Allardyce "Nene will be in the squad this weekend, most likely on the bench. He can play a big part for us, especially with Carroll & Cole out. Carlton Cole is the only injury we picked up last week. Nene now has to stake a claim, like every player that plays. We've had a good week in training & we're ready for the early kick off on Saturday"
- Sunderland : Gus Poyet "Giaccherini is practically going to be out right until the end of the season which is unfortunate for us, but we wish him well and I want to say a full recovery - not a quick one - so that we can count on him next year" - Aston Villa : Tim Sherwood "Kieran Richardson won't be fit, Aly Cissokho is a doubt & Alan Hutton is touch & go. There's nothing definitive at the moment though" Nathan Baker could come back into contention but Philippe Senderos & Libor Kozak remain sidelined - Manchester United : Robin van Persie [ankle] is Uniteds' only absentee through injury, must "wait and see" on the length of his absence. Michael Carrick returned to training on Thursday but lacks "match rhythm" and James Wilson is also available after suffering a dead leg playing for the under-21s on Monday - Crystal Palace : Pardew confirms Fraizer Campbell [up to 6 weeks], Yaya Sanogo & Marouane Chamah [both two weeks] are out of GW27 but James McArthur has recovered from a thigh injury & will be available. Mile Jedinak "has trained well this week & the manager is looking forward to having his presence back in the side" - Newcastle United : John Carver "Daryl Janmaat is fine. He was taken off as a precaution last weekend and he has trained well this week. Jonas Gutierrez is in the squad. There's a possibility he could be on the bench & that's a massive lift for everyone" Remy Cabella confirms a knee injury will keep him out for the second consecutive game. Cheick Tiote is almost certain to miss the remainder of the season after undergoing knee surgery in Qatar - Sunderland : Jack Rodwell [calf] & Billy Jones [ankle] won't be risked at Manchester United on Saturday but the pair are likely to be involved at Hull on Tuesday. A knee injury will keep Will Buckley out & Emanuele Giaccherini [ankle] is expected to miss the remainder of the campaign - West Brom : James Morrison [hamstring] & Saido Berahino [who was 'Cattermoled' last weekend] will be assessed ahead of the Southampton game on Saturday. Victor Anichebe [groin] has a chance of making the squad - the striker is expected to train on Friday
