PREDICTED LINE-UPS

ARSENAL

- Henrikh Mkhitaryan will definitely miss GW33 after picking up a knee injury during Arsenal's 4-1 win at home to CSKA Moscow on Thursday night. Arsene Wenger said: "Micki came off and he will be out for Sunday. He has a scan and the fear is that his medial knee ligament has been touched. We'll know more about that soon. For how long he will be out, I don't know."

- Despite the three-goal cushion, the Gunners boss is likely to rest key assets for the Southampton clash on Sunday

- Laurent Koscielny, Nacho Monreal and Aaron Ramsey are potential rotation candidates, while Mesut Ozil might be more secure of a start in attacking midfield due to Mkhitaryan's absence

BOURNEMOUTH

- Junior Stanislas ruled out for rest of the campaign

- Adam Smith will miss the Crystal Palace clash. Howe "hopes to get him back before the end of the season"

- Simon Francis is doubtful, will be a "late call"

- Jermain Defoe's late GW32 equaliser could see the veteran striker start ahead of Callum Wilson up front

BRIGHTON

- Dale Stephens remains a doubt, no new injury concerns for Hughton

- Anthony Knockaert serves the last match of a three-game suspension

BURNLEY

- Johann Berg Gudmundsson, who was absent in GW32, and Ben Mee are both doubts for the Watford trip. However, the latter was spotted in training on Friday

- Tom Heaton is back in contention for GW33

CHELSEA

- Pedro and Thibaut Courtois "could feature" for Antonio Conte's side

CRYSTAL PALACE

- Christian Benteke doubtful, Alexander Sorloth unavailable

- James Tomkins not yet fit, no long-term absentees returning for Eagles

EVERTON

- Idrissa Gueye will definitely be part of the Everton squad tomorrow after missing out through injury in GW32

HUDDERSFIELD

- Ankle injury sidelines Elias Kachunga for final games, no other fresh injury worries for the Terriers

LEICESTER

- Matty James will miss the rest of the campaign, while Wilfred Ndidi is suspended for GW33 and the first fixture of Leicester's DGW34

- Daniel Amartey hopes to return to first-team training next week

LIVERPOOL

- Mo Salah could yet feature against Everton on Saturday. Jurgen Klopp said: "We try everything to make him available. There are still 24hrs to go before we start so let's see what happens. I can't make Mo available just because it's the derby. If he's not 100% fit then he will not be involved."

- Reports suggest Emre Can could miss the rest of the campaign; the German will not be involved in the Merseyside derby

- Klopp likely to rotate ahead of UCL quarter-final second leg on Tuesday, Danny Ings' 'chances of starting don't look too bad'

- Joel Matip is out for the remainder of the season while Joe Gomez and Adam Lallana are unavailable. Ragnar Klavan has stepped up his recovery

MAN CITY

- Sergio Aguero remains a doubt for the GW33 Manchester derby, Man City will check on the striker's fitness in training today

- A report earlier this week suggested Guardiola could rest key players, while the manager hinted at rotation as his press conference on Friday: "We have three massive games coming up - United, Liverpool and Spurs - we have to see the players' condition. We have training later and we will see later. We will prepare the team to win the game."

MAN UTD

- Sergio Romero is the only absentee from an otherwise fully-fit Man Utd squad

NEWCASTLE

- Islam Slimani is ineligible to face parent club Leicester, no injury problems for Rafa Benitez

SOUTHAMPTON

STOKE

- Kurt Zouma and Mame Diouf both doubts

SWANSEA

- Sam Clucas cleared to play, Renato Sanches still out, Angel Rangel must build fitness

- Last game of Jordan Ayew's ban (who's for a cheeky punt on Tammy Abraham as captain?!)

TOTTENHAM

- Mauricio Pochettino will decide on Harry Kane's GW33 involvement "after one more training session" but the striker is "doing very well"

WATFORD

- Christian Kabasele back in training, Craig Cathcart match fit after GW32 sub appearance

WEST BROM

- Gareth Barry will not feature again this season due to imminent knee surgery

- Nacer Chadli has returned to training, Daniel Sturridge "not quite there"
