Crystal Palace (12) v Newcastle (4)

Joachim Andersen will not feature for Palace, the defender is expected to miss several weeks with a calf injury sustained in the 1-0 loss to Chelsea. Long-term absentees James McArthur and Nathan Ferguson remain sidelined and set for at least a few weeks out, although Ferguson has begun to train with the team.

Eddie Howe is unsure when Bruno Guimaraes will return after the Brazilian picked up an ankle injury against Fulham – but the Magpies boss hopes the injury is not long-term. Howe added there were “a few knocks” picked up but confirmed there were no other fresh injury concerns for his team.

Arsenal (1) v Man Utd (3)

Leandro Trossard could make his Arsenal debut having trained with his new team-mates on Friday following his move from Brighton. Gabriel Jesus is still out with a knee injury and Reiss Nelson’s thigh issue keeps him sidelined but Mohamed Elneny could return to the squad after a minor knock.

Casemiro serves a one-match ban for United. Anthony Martial and Diogo Dalot need assessing before the game in north London, where Jadon Sancho is unlikely to feature despite returning to team training.
