Gabriel MartinelliF/MKneeOUT 12/13/2020

Notes: Holding is back in the starting XI after Luiz's injury, while Mikel Arteta will probably tinker with the squad somewhere. Lacazette impressed centrally midweek and could return to the XI for Willock.

Brighton & Hove Albion v. Southampton

Notes: Trossard enters the XI for Maupay, while Lamptey is back from suspension. Veltman returns to the bench, though he could stay on at center-back if Graham Potter prefers him to someone else.

Burnley v. Everton

Notes: Pope returns in net and Brownhill is back in the midfield, if both are healthy. Gudmundsson doesn't appear ready so Rodriguez gets another start on the wing.

Chelsea v. Leeds United

Injury Report

Projected Lineup (4-3-3 v. Leeds): Edouard Mendy (GK), Reece James (DR), Thiago Silva (DC), Kurt Zouma (DC), Ben Chilwell (DL), N'Golo Kante (MC), Jorginho (MC), Mason Mount (MC), Hakim Ziyech (FWR), Timo Werner (FWL), Tammy Abraham (FW)

Notes: Kovacic moves to the bench in order to get some rest, while the attack remains the same after everyone got added rest midweek. Pulisic and Havertz could return to the XI, but Frank Lampard may lean on what has worked with the 4-3-3 featuring Abraham up top.

Crystal Palace at West Bromwich Albion

NamePosInjuryStatusReturn
Wilfried ZahaF/MIllnessGTD 12/5/2020
Connor WickhamFUndisclosedOUT 12/15/2020

Notes: Zaha should replace Batshuayi in the XI, while Reidewald re-enters after an unsuccessful change to the lineup against Newcastle. Cahill is odd man out at center-back.

Everton at Burnley

Notes: Carlo Ancelotti is trying to figure things out but injuries aren't helping. The formation and starters are in flux, mainly at center-back and on the wing where Delph could come into the XI after replacing Tom Davies last match.

Fulham at Manchester City

Notes: Leeds will try and match last week's win with the same lineup that features Alioski and Raphinha on the wings. 

Leicester City at Sheffield United

Notes: Leicester have a few players returning from injury midweek, so there could be some changes ahead of Sunday's match. Albrighton returns to the XI for the disappointing Luke Thomas and Barnes starts up front for Praet.

Liverpool v. Wolverhampton

Notes: There are some knocks to worry about, but everything is mostly the same outside of Kelleher at goalkeeper. There's a chance someone like Jota is rested or Jurgen Klopp moves to a 4-2-3-1 to mix things up.

Manchester City v. Fulham

Notes: Martial is an option again and Cavani gets the start after last week's heroics. De Gea could be rested for Dean Henderson after recent knee issues.

Notes: Ampadu returns from injury to replace Kean Bryan, while Brewster and McGoldrick are back in the XI for Burke and McBurnie. Lundstram is an option to start in the midfield.

Notes: Everything is the same for Southampton unless Ings is healthy enough to start. He would likely replace Djenepo or Armstrong in the XI, moving Walcott back to the midfield.

Notes: Tottenham have some knocks, but none seem serious. Alderweireld could re-enter for Rodon, while Aurier and Bergwijn could be replaced.

Notes: Slaven Bilic keeps everything the same outside of Townsend after they got their first three points last match. Livermore is an option to return for Sawyers if he's fit following COVID-19.

West Ham United v. Manchester United

Notes: Haller likely comes back in for the injured Antonio, though Benrahma figures to be in contention for a start.

Notes: Wolves stick with what works in the four-man back line. The hope is that Silva can hold down a role up front with the trio of Traore, Neto and Podence surrounding him.
