Patrick Bamford (ankle), Luke Ayling and Robin Koch (both knee) all remain sidelined with Ayling in contention to feature for the U-23 team in Monday.

Ones to watch

Yves Bissouma (Brighton & Hove Albion)

Made a few vital challenges against Aston Villa when they looked to break and tracked back well. With an unflappable demeanor being one of his many attributes, it's not hard to see why clubs such as Arsenal and Liverpool are interested in the midfielder.

Raphinha (Leeds United)

The Whites leading scorer with five goals, the Brazilian has starred in all areas of the game. His pace, ability to get past defenders and left foot make him a handful for any Premier League defense.
