Wilfred Ndidi could back in the fold, but Timothy Castagne, Dennis Praet and Wesley Fofana all remain out.

Davy Propper and Alireza Jahanbakhsh could also return but Solly March, Tariq Lamptey and Jason Steele remain out.

Steele's absence should see Christian Walton given the nod in goal, while Adam Lallana, Danny Welbeck and Steven Alzate could earn starts too.
