Premier League and League Cup team news: Injuries and suspensions
Get all the latest team news and information for the latest Premier League action.
PREDICTION: City to win 2-1.
FANTASY PICK: Sergio Aguero
KEY STAT: Manchester City have scored two or more goals in each of their last six Premier League games against Liverpool.
Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho will return to the side having been rested for their Europa League exit against Besiktas. Midfielder Jordan Henderson was also left at home with an ankle problem and that will need to be assessed at the weekend.
Defender Mamadou Sakho has resumed training this week after a hip injury while full-back Glen Johnson could be back after illness meant he missed the trip to Istanbul.
Provisional squad: Mignolet, Can, Skrtel, Sakho, Ibe, Henderson, Allen, Markovic, Sterling, Coutinho, Sturridge, Ward, Lovren, Johnson, Toure, Moreno, Lallana, Lambert, Borini, Balotelli.
- MANCHESTER CITY
Manchester City have a fully-fit squad, and key midfielder Yaya Toure is poised to return after missing Tuesday's Champions League loss to Barcelona through suspension.
Striker Wilfried Bony, who has made two substitute appearances in the past week, could make his first start since his move from Swansea.
Provisional squad: Hart, Caballero, Sagna, Zabaleta, Kompany, Demichelis, Mangala, Boyata, Clichy, Kolarov, Navas, Nasri, Silva, Milner, Toure, Lampard, Fernando, Fernandinho, Aguero, Dzeko, Bony, Jovetic.
PREDICTION: Arsenal to win 2-1.
FANTASY PICK: Alexis Sanchez
KEY STAT: Everton have won none of their last 20 away matches against Arsenal in all competitions (D4 L16).
Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is set for a short spell on the sidelines following a minor procedure to remove a stud in his ankle which was causing discomfort. Midfielders Aaron Ramsey and Mathieu Flamini (both hamstring) are set to train on Friday, but are not expected to be available.
Mikel Arterta (ankle), Abou Diaby (calf) and Mathieu Debuchy (shoulder) all continue their recoveries.
Provisional squad: Ospina, Monreal, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Bellerin, Coquelin, Cazorla, Sanchez, Ozil, Walcott, Giroud, Szczesny, Gabriel, Welbeck, Gibbs, Rosicky, Akpom, Chambers, Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Everton boss Roberto Martinez expects Romelu Lukaku to be fit. Lukaku came off early in the second half of Thursday's Europa League victory over Young Boys, but Martinez has played down suggestions a hamstring problem might keep the striker out of the game at the Emirates Stadium this weekend, saying he is "fine" and "trained well" on Friday.
Everton have John Stones and Aaron Lennon -- suspended and cup-tied respectively on Thursday -- back available, but remain without Steven Pienaar, Aiden McGeady (both knee), Christian Atsu (illness), Bryan Oviedo (hamstring) and Tony Hibbert (knee).
Provisional squad: Howard, Robles, Stones, Alcaraz, Jagielka, Distin, Coleman, Baines, Garbutt, Besic, McCarthy, Barry, Barkley, Gibson, Osman, Mirallas, Lennon, Naismith, Lukaku, Kone.
CAPITAL ONE CUP FINAL
PREDICTION: Chelsea to win 3-1
KEY STAT: Didier Drogba has scored nine goals in nine major finals for Chelsea.
Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic is suspended for Sunday's Capital One Cup final. Matic sits out the first of his two-match suspension after his dismissal for his reaction to a tackle by Burnley's Ashley Barnes last weekend, while John Obi Mikel (knee) remains out, so Ramires is likely to start in midfield.
Boss Jose Mourinho has decisions to make in goal, with Thibaut Courtois likely to be selected ahead of Petr Cech, and in central defence, with Kurt Zouma and Gary Cahill competing to start alongside John Terry.
Provisional squad: Courtois, Cech, Ivanovic, Luis, Fabregas, Zouma, Ake, Ramires, Oscar, Hazard, Drogba, Remy, Costa, Willian, Cuadrado, Cahill, Terry, Azpilicueta, Blackman, Christensen, Loftus-Cheek.
Tottenham have no fresh injury worries. Mauricio Pochettino made seven alterations for Thursday's Europa League tie at Fiorentina, starting the likes of Harry Kane, Andros Townsend and Kyle Walker from the bench with the Wembley final in mind.
The Spurs head coach has to choose whether to start Hugo Lloris and Michel Vorm in goal, while captain Younes Kaboul, Emmanuel Adebayor and Etienne Capoue will be sweating on their place in the squad after being left in London for the last-32 tie.
Provisional squad: Lloris, Vorm, Friedel, Walker, Rose, Davies, Chiriches, Kaboul, Fazio, Dier, Vertonghen, Bentaleb, Mason, Capoue, Paulinho, Stambouli, Dembele, Lamela, Townsend, Eriksen, Chadli, Soldado, Adebayor, Kane.
