H17 2019-10-03 Injury Update

Ralph Hasenhuttl has ruled Cedric Soares and Moussa Djenepo out of this weekend's match against Chelsea.

Lampard on Kante's fitness: "That's something we'll have to watch over the next 24, 48 hours to make sure he's still on a semi-recovery, as they all are, from the trip to Lille. He hasn't played much, obviously. In terms of the injury, he's fine."

Klopp on Alisson: "It's different with goalkeepers [re "rushing" players back]. The good thing, Adrian did that well, we don't feel pressure, we don't have to rush it - but we don't. He's training already for ten days."

Klopp: "Joel [Matip] looks good, but is not ready for tomorrow. Shaq, not. Clyney, not. That's it pretty much. After the international break they are all back on track [apart from Clyne]."

Jurgen Klopp: "With Alisson it's still maybe, maybe not! Yesterday he trained with the team [for the first time]. Goalie sessions are often more intense than the proper football sessions. Looked really good, we will see."

Farke on Godfrey's surgery next week: "It's more a question of days and not weeks, so there's even a chance that he's available for the Bournemouth game. It will last 9-14 days until he's back in team training."

Farke on Onel Hernandez: "He's improving from day to day and not too far away from returning back to team training. There's also a small chance perhaps that even before the Bournemouth game that Onel is back in team training."

Farke adds that Jamal Lewis has a "good chance" of playing, while Sam Byram is in the squad. Ralf Fahrmann, Tim Krul and Grant Hanley are out but Ben Godfrey will play before having a hernia operation during the international break.

Daniel Farke says that there is a "question mark" on Todd Cantwell's hamstring but hopes to have him available for tomorrow.

Farke: "Ralf Fahrmann is not capable to play. Tim Krul is also not able to play, so for that Michael McGovern will start tomorrow."

Farke: "Grant Hanley will be out tomorrow. He was alright for two weeks but since Wednesday he felt again some problems. He will need to see a specialist to find out what the reasons [are]."

Guardiola on John Stones: "Hopefully after the international break he will be back."

Pep Guardiola on Kevin De Bruyne: "No, tomorrow is not fit. After the international break he will be ready, it's not a big, big problem."

Poch on who will replace Aurier: "A few options, I think Moussa was very good playing one hour against Southampton with tough players like Boufal and Redmond. He did very well and that made me think a little bit that his option is bigger than maybe another player.”

Pochettino: "Some players that play two games, was a tough game playing one hour with ten men [v Southampton], maybe some players are going to rest for tomorrow."

Pochettino on Alli: "We’re going to help him, provide all the tools and the platform for him to recover his best way to play. There’s no doubt that Dele is going to recover. Now he’s in a tough period but we need him, he’s a very important player for us."

Roy Hodgson confirms that Mamadou Sakho is his only injury-related absentee for the trip to West Ham, although Luka Milivojevic serves a one-match ban after collecting five yellow cards.

Spurs report that Giovani Lo Celso (hip) and Ryan Sessegnon (hamstring) are entering the late stages of rehabilitation. Serge Aurier serves a one-match suspension this weekend, meanwhile.

Bruce on Florian Lejeune: "He has been training for the past week, ten days. Another couple of weeks after this one, then he might be available, too."

Bruce: "We've got practically everybody OK apart from Matt Ritchie. Dwight Gayle has trained all week, I'll make a decision on him in the next couple of days."

Bruce on Matthew Longstaff: "He's been in with a chance since I walked through the door, so yeah, he comes into the equation with the problems we've got."

Bruce: "We changed to a back four; they've all played in a back four, I'm sure of that. So we changed to a back four and of course, we got badly beaten. We didn't have a left wing-back last week, so it's food for thought for me."

Bruce adds that Jonjo Shelvey is fit but that Matt Ritchie is still unavailable.

Steve Bruce says that a late decision will be made on Dwight Gayle's involvement against Manchester United following his return to training.

Howe on Rico: "He's grown into the position, he's growing in confidence all the time. The challenge for him is to maintain that progression and if he does, with his qualities, he's going to be an important player for us."

Howe on Diego Rico: "I've been very impressed in recent weeks, I think he's had a decisive say in a lot of games, if you look at the assists that he's made for the team. His corners and free-kicks in recent games have been really valuable for us."

Howe didn't provide any specific update on Ryan Fraser (illness) in the broadcast section of his press conference but said of Bournemouth's overall fitness situation: "Touch wood, I think we're OK."

Howe: "There’s a whole group of players that aren't far away now, so excited to possibly get them close to returning after the international break. But they're not ready for this game."

Eddie Howe says that Adam Smith and Dan Gosling are closing in on a return but won't be ready for Sunday’s trip to Arsenal.

Solskjaer on whether Pogba will recover for Sunday: "Probably not, there's an international break as well, it might be time for us to give him 10 or 14 days extra to be ready for Liverpool."

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Jesse Lingard: "I think he felt his hamstring, I don’t think he’s too bad. Probably not Newcastle but ready for Liverpool."

James is fine, he’s trained the last couple of days. He’ll be OK.

In both cases [with or without surgery], less than three months will be difficult for Lukasz to return.

Roberto is a goalkeeper that I trust a lot. For the moment we are going to keep the two goalkeepers that we have. But we will decide after we have exact knowledge how long Fabianski will be out.

Corky is the only doubt, he’s got a very minor fracture on his scapula. And although it’s not that painful, there’s obviously a precautionary element to that. Touch and go but I’m thinking we probably look wiser on it to make sure he’s ready for the next one.

Really good news for us. Andre started since the first day of the week, Theo started to do some individual as well, and today did all the session with the team. They are good news for us. Both OK.

Like you know, Andre didn’t play the last month. He worked during the week, in some moments more tired than the other teammates, but that is something normal. Now it is up to us to keep working hard with him and to put him the same level as the others

Henri Lansbury has been back training now so he’s available for selection. Tyrone Mings is fine, he’s trained all week. Matt Targett has trained the last couple of days as well so he is available for selection.

The game will come too quick for Jonathan Kodjia, who has trained with us, but because of the nature of the facial injury, he’ll be available after the international break.

Solly’s [March] been training back, Alireza’s fine. Davy Propper we’ll wait till tomorrow to make a decision. Shane Duffy is making really good progress, won’t make the game but diagnosis is probably a bit better than the original diagnosis.

Leo [Trossard] is making good progress but again too soon, same with Berny [Bernardo] as well. Leon Balogun, back in the squad.

The game on Saturday has just come a bit too quick for Didzy [McGoldrick]. I think he might be going over with the Republic of Ireland squad, for them to have a look at him as well, to see where he is. He’s getting closer

Pep Guardiola on Kevin De Bruyne: "No, tomorrow is not fit. After the international break he will be ready, it's not a big, big problem."
