EPL Injuries

All the latest English Premier League injury news and insights.

          CRYSTAL PALACE: It could be one out and one in for the Eagles from the squad that went to Anfield. Jefferson Lerma picked up an injury during the win, and Oliver Glasner does not expect the midfielder, who has been deputising at centre-back, to return before the game with Manchester United next month. "So, for this week where we have three games in six or seven days. I am pleased that Rob Holding is back. He trained for the whole week with us, and he will be in the squad." Will Hughes, Chris Richards and Joel Ward face late fitness tests. "We have three question marks. Chris: it was the first time he trained with us today (Friday), but it was a very easy session. Then we have Joel, who also had issues this week with his groin, so we will see tomorrow. Will got a knock yesterday in training, so he couldn't train today. So, it is three players we will take the final decision on tomorrow. That is it; nobody else is coming back."          ASTON VILLA: Douglas Luiz is serving a domestic ban, but the Brazilian helped Villa progress to the Europa Conference League SF following a penalty shootout win in Lille. Nicolo Zaniolo is also expected to miss out after pulling up with an apparent hamstring issue on Thursday evening. Ordinarily, Unai Emery would keep changes to a minimum following the win at Arsenal, but after 120 minutes of European football, players will need to be assessed (and protected) as the side aims to secure a Champions League qualifying spot. Álex Moreno has a 'small injury' in his calf, which will lock Lucas Digne in at left-back until early May.          WEST HAM UNITED: Nayef Aguerd must be checked after rolling his ankle against Leverkusen on Thursday night. "He and Dinos (Mavropanos) are being assessed before Sunday." Emerson and Lucas Paquetá were suspended for the Europa League second-leg tie and will come back into contention. Kalvin Phillips and Alphonse Areola also face a late test after missing games recently. Jarrod Bowen started and assisted against Leverkusen, but once again, the forward will be checked ahead of kick-off following his recent back injury. "I've not seen him yet today. Jarrod was really touch and go going into last night's game, and it took an injection for him to play. We'll have to see how he is ahead of Sunday. You always want your big players to be available. If we have them all, we always have a good chance of getting a result." George Earthy is 'great', reveals David Moyes after the youngster was stretched from the field on his debut following a sickening clash with teammate Edson Alvarez. "He was in the other day. He looks fine, but he's going through the protocols. He won't be available on Sunday."          EVERTON: 'Yeah, both trained light today and came through it,' said Sean Dyche when asked for an update on Jarrod Branthwaite and Calvert-Lewin on Friday. 'We hope there's no reaction to that.' Nathan Patterson is out for the season following the hamstring injury he suffered at Stamford Bridge. 'He will need surgery on that, very unfortunate. We're disappointed in that one for him.' Seamus Coleman is rated as touch-and-go 'at best' according to Dyche. 'We're waiting on him, and hopefully, that'll calm down quickly.' Idrissa Gana Gueye 'should be OK' after training on Friday. 'His calf has settled - similar low-level training - but he was OK.'           AFC BOURNEMOUTH: Antoine Semenyo 'will be a part of the squad' travelling to Villa Park as long as everything goes well in the final session on Saturday. Luis Sinisterra is the only other change facing Andoni Iraola after the Cherries boss admitted he made a mistake risking the winger against Manchester United. misses out. 'We don't expect any more changes.' The Colombian may not play again this season. 'It's a strain, so it's going to be really tight, I don't know if he will be recovered to play the last game, but it's going to be difficult because the normal time is three or four weeks.' Iraola is 'more optimistic' that Marcus Tavernier can still play a part during the run-in. 'The injury was [one week] before; it gives you some more chance, but definitely, he's not going to be involved this week. We will try to play with him, but it also has to be the final games of the season.' Elsewhere, 'some are getting closer', but they won't be ready for Sunday.
