Gary Cahill is almost certainly out due to illness, having been admitted to hospital this week with gastroenteritis. Nathan Ake and Kurt Zouma are possible replacements while John Terry is likely to be on the substitutes' bench. Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is available again following an ankle injury which saw him miss last Sunday's loss at Manchester United.

- BOURNEMOUTH

Bournemouth will make a late call on midfielder Dan Gosling as he recovers from a knee problem. On-loan Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is out for the season after suffering a fractured leg during last week's defeat at Tottenham, so Lewis Cook could be drafted into the side after coming off the bench at White Hart Lane. Midfielder Andrew Surman is on his way back from a knee problem, while forward Callum Wilson, goalkeeper Adam Federici and defender Rhoys Wiggins all continue their recoveries from their own knee injuries.

Provisional Squad: Boruc, A Smith, S Cook, Daniels, Francis, Pugh, L Cook, Arter, Stanislas, King, Afobe, Allsop, Gradel, Mings, Cargill, Fraser, Mousset, Gosling.

- MIDDLESBROUGH

Calum Chambers is back in contention after being ineligible to play against parent club Arsenal, though he had been missing with a foot injury since February. He has trained this week and could be involved. Full-back Fabio (knee) and striker Rudy Gestede (foot) are also hopeful of proving their fitness, but goalkeeper Victor Valdes (ribs) and midfielder Grant Leadbitter (hamstring) are out.

Provisional squad: Guzan, Konstantopoulos, Barragan, Friend, Fabio, Chambers, Gibson, Espinosa, Ayala, Husband, Fry, De Roon, Clayton, Forshaw, Guedioura, Downing, Stuani, Traore, Fischer, Ramirez, Negredo, Gestede, Bamford.

- HULL

Marco Silva will pick from an unchanged squad. Abel Hernandez and Ahmed Elmohamady are pushing for recalls after starting on the bench at Stoke. Defender Omar Elabdellaoui's back problem will keep him on the sidelines while Ryan Mason, Moses Odubajo and Will Keane are also absent through injury.

Provisional squad: Jakupovic, Marshall, Robertson, Davies, Dawson, Maguire, Ranocchia, Elmohamady, Huddlestone, Evandro, Meyler, Henriksen, Grosicki, Hernandez, Diomande, N'Diaye, Clucas, Markovic, Niasse, Mbokani.

Miguel Britos is available after a two-match suspension. Defender Craig Cathcart has been carrying a knee problem and is not expected to feature. Younes Kaboul (hamstring), Roberto Pereyra (knee) and Ben Watson (groin) have all been out, while forward Mauro Zarate (anterior cruciate ligament) is a long-term absentee.

Provisional squad: Gomes, Mariappa, Janmaat, Prodl, Holebas, Capoue, Doucoure, Cleverley , Deeney, Niang, Amrabat, Pantilimon, Mason, Success, Pereira, Kabasele, Okaka, Behrami, Britos.

- SWANSEA

Wayne Routledge misses out with a hernia problem which may require surgery. Jack Cork is also absent again with an ankle injury, and a reshaped midfield is likely to see either club captain Leon Britton or Tom Carroll get the nod over Jay Fulton after last weekend's 1-0 defeat at Watford. Relegation-threatened Swansea will make a late decision on top scorer Fernando Llorente, who has been troubled by ankle and leg injuries in recent weeks, with Jordan Ayew standing by.

Provisional squad: Fabianski, Naughton, Fernandez, Mawson, Olsson, Ki, Carroll, Fer, Sigurdsson, Llorente, Narsingh, Nordfeldt, Kingsley, Amat, Van der Hoorn, Britton, Fulton, Montero, Ayew, McBurnie, Borja, Roberts.

- STOKE

Joe Allen, an ex-Swans player, and Glenn Whelan have trained this week after missing the victory over Hull last weekend due to a hamstring problem and virus respectively. Forward Jon Walters' knee issue is being monitored, but he should be fine to be involved. Fit-again goalkeeper Jack Butland was an unused substitute against Hull, returning to the matchday squad for the first time in over a year, and Hughes has said there is "a possibility'' he will play in the Swansea game.

Provisional squad: Grant, Butland, Shawcross, Martins Indi, Johnson, Pieters, Bardsley, Muniesa, Cameron, Whelan, Adam, Imbula, Allen, Shaqiri, Arnautovic, Sobhi, Walters, Crouch, Berahino, Diouf, Bony.

Andy Carroll is out with a recurrence of a groin injury and Sam Byram is suspended following his red card at Sunderland last weekend. Captain Mark Noble completes a two-match ban while Michail Antonio (hamstring), Angelo Ogbonna (knee) and Pedro Obiang (ankle) are injured, but Winston Reid (groin) and Diafra Sakho (back) could return.

Provisional squad: Adrian, Randolph, Byram, Fonte, Reid, Collins, Cresswell, Masuaku, Kouyate, Fernandes, Nordtveit, Snodgrass, Feghouli, Lanzini, Ayew, Fletcher, Calleri, Sakho.

- EVERTON

Everton's on-loan striker Enner Valencia is ineligible to face his parent club West Ham. Midfielder James McCarthy may not feature again this season as he continues to struggle with a hamstring problem. Muhamed Besic will play his second match for the under-23s on Friday as he steps up his comeback from a serious knee injury, while Ramiro Funes Mori and Yannick Bolasie (both knee), Seamus Coleman (broken leg) and Aaron Lennon all remain absent.

Provisional squad: Robles, Holgate, Williams, Jagielka, Baines, Schneiderlin, Gueye, Barkley, Davies, Mirallas, Lukaku, Stekelenburg, Pennington, Kenny, Barry, Williams, Calvert-Lewin, Lookman, Kone.

David Ospina (back), Danny Welbeck (toe), Shkodran Mustafi and Lucas Perez (thigh) are all missing while Jeff Reine-Adelaide (ankle) and Santi Cazorla (Achilles) will not play again this season. Manager Arsene Wenger changed to a three-man defence for Monday's win at Middlesbrough and admits he could stick with the new system with Theo Walcott and Hector Bellerin hoping for recalls.

Provisional squad: Cech, Martinez, Macey, Bellerin, Holding, Gabriel, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Monreal, Gibbs, Maitland-Niles, Coquelin, Xhaka, Ramsey, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Walcott, Iwobi, Sanchez, Giroud.

- MANCHESTER CITY

Gabriel Jesus could return after two months out with a broken foot. Defender John Stones has been ruled out after failing to recover from the muscle injury which forced him out of last week's Premier League victory at Southampton. With Claudio Bravo having featured in the last two Premier League games, Willy Caballero could return in goal if manager Pep Guardiola sticks to his usual cup rotation policy. Right-back Bacary Sagna (groin) is unlikely to return.

Provisional squad: Caballero, Bravo, Zabaleta, Navas, Kompany, Otamendi, Clichy, Kolarov, Toure, Fernando, Fernandinho, Delph, De Bruyne, Silva, Sterling, Sane, Nolito, Aguero, Jesus, Iheanacho.

Burnley are waiting on the outcome of Joey Barton's Football Association hearing in relation to alleged betting offences and he could be handed a suspension -- though there is no direct precedent. Sam Vokes (hamstring) and Scott Arfield (knee) are both doubts but Johann Berg Gudmundsson (knee) could come back into the squad.

Provisional squad: Heaton, Robinson, Pope, Lowton, Keane, Mee, Long, Ward, Darikwa, Tarkowski, Brady, Barton, Flanagan, Defour, Boyd, Hendrick, Westwood, Arfield, Gudmundsson, Vokes, Gray, Agyei, Barnes.

- MANCHESTER UNITED

Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo were forced off injured against Anderlecht and seem certain to be missing. Chris Smalling (knee), Phil Jones (foot) and Juan Mata (groin) remain absent for the trip to Turf Moor, where David De Gea looks set to replace Sergio Romero in goal.

Provisional squad: De Gea, Romero, Pereira, Valencia, Blind, Darmian, Shaw, Tuanzebe, Fosu-Mensah, Bailly, Mkhitaryan, Carrick, Herrera, Young, Lingard, Pogba, Fellaini, Martial, Rooney, Rashford.

- LIVERPOOL

Jurgen Klopp is awaiting updates on the fitness of defenders Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan and midfielder Lucas Leiva. The trio have not trained this week due to injury and if none manage to make it, Klopp faces the prospect of giving 19-year-old centre-back Joe Gomez his first Premier League start since September 2015 having missed most of last season after a knee operation. Adam Lallana (groin) is currently undergoing outdoor work with the Reds' rehabilitation coach and is expected to return to team training next week but there is no comeback date yet pencilled in for fellow midfielder Jordan Henderson.

Provisional squad: Mignolet, Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Matip, Clyne, Milner, Can, Wijnaldum, Coutinho, Firmino, Origi, Karius, Moreno, Grujic, Woodburn, Wilson, Ejaria, Sturridge.

- CRYSTAL PALACE

Loanee Mamadou Sakho is ineligible to face his parent club. In his absence, the fit-again James Tomkins is expected to return to Sam Allardyce's starting XI. Loic Remy and James McArthur have also returned to contention. The manager remains without long-term absentees Scott Dann, Pape Souare, Fraizer Campbell and Connor Wickham.

Provisional squad: Hennessey, Mandanda, Speroni, Ward, Kelly, Delaney, Tomkins, Fryers, McArthur, Milivojevic, Ledley, Cabaye, Puncheon, Townsend, Kaikai, Zaha, Sako, Schlupp, Van Aanholt, Lee, C Benteke.
