Chelsea are expected to field a full-strength side for Saturday's Premier League clash with Leicester.

Ross Barkley is expected to be fit to make his debut following a hamstring injury in Chelsea's FA Cup third-round replay with Norwich next Wednesday.

Jamie Vardy is fit again after missing Leicester's FA Cup trip to Fleetwood.

The striker will travel to Chelsea on Saturday after recovering from the groin injury which made him sit out the goalless draw at Highbury Stadium last Saturday.

Wes Morgan and Danny Simpson (both hamstring) and Robert Huth (ankle) are out but Christian Fuchs (illness) and Vicente Iborra (hamstring) are fit for Claude Puel's side at Stamford Bridge.

Knee and ankle injuries to Jeffrey Schlupp and Andros Townsend respectively have further reduced Crystal Palace's options for Saturday's visit of Burnley.

Hodgson is also still without Joel Ward (groin), Mamadou Sakho (calf), Connor Wickham, Scott Dann and Jason Puncheon (all knee) and Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who has a knock.

Georges-Kevin Nkoudou could go straight into the Burnley line-up for their trip to Crystal Palace after signing on loan from Tottenham until the end of the season.

Scott Arfield remains a doubt with a minor hamstring strain, while the trip will also come too soon for defender Stephen Ward (knee) and Chris Wood (leg).

West Brom vs Brighton, Saturday 12th January, 3pm:

James Morrison and Nacer Chadli are out for West Brom for at least another month.

Jonny Evans (foot), Craig Dawson (fatigue) and winger Matt Phillips (hamstring) are fit to face Brighton on Saturday after sitting out the 2-0 FA Cup win at Exeter.

Izzy Brown will be absent for Brighton's trip to Premier League strugglers West Brom after he was ruled out for the rest of the season.

Midfielder Steve Sidwell, who has not featured so far this season because of a back problem, has suffered a further setback by picking up an ankle complaint in training and remains Albion's only other injury issue.

Goalkeeper Rob Elliot could return to the Newcastle team for Saturday's Premier League clash with Swansea after shaking off a thigh injury.

However, manager Rafael Benitez will still be without striker Aleksandar Mitrovic (back), who is closing in on a return, and defenders Florian Lejeune (foot) and Jesus Gamez (ankle).

Swansea have doubts over Tammy Abraham (hip) and Renato Sanches (hamstring) for the trip to Newcastle.

Academy product Connor Roberts could make his Premier League debut, with Kyle Naughton completing a three-game ban and Angel Rangel sidelined by a calf strain.

Watford continue to be dogged by injuries ahead of Southampton's Premier League visit to Vicarage Road on Saturday.

Kiko Femenia, Will Hughes (both hamstring), Younes Kaboul (foot), Miguel Britos (ankle), Craig Cathcart, Nathaniel Chalobah and Isaac Success (all knee) remain sidelined.

Southampton could welcome back defenders Wesley Hoedt, Cedric Soares and Jeremy Pied at Watford.

Hoedt (concussion), Soares (hamstring) and Pied (leg) have all returned to training and their fitness will be assessed before kick-off.

Huddersfield vs West Ham, Saturday 12th January, 3pm:

Huddersfield's new signing Alex Pritchard could make his debut for the club in the home game against West Ham.

Midfielder Pritchard completed his permanent move to the John Smith's Stadium from Norwich on Friday morning and is expected to go straight into David Wagner's squad.

Recent loan signing Terence Kongolo hopes to make his Premier League bow in central defence, but forward Collin Quaner, plus defenders Chris Lowe and Martin Cranie, will miss out through injury.

Michail Antonio is still missing from the West Ham squad for the trip to West Yorkshire.

But James Collins, Aaron Cresswell, Marko Arnautovic and Manuel Lanzini have shaken off knocks to return to the squad.

Tottenham vs Everton, Saturday 12th January, 5.30pm:

Tottenham will be without midfielder Harry Winks for Saturday's Premier League game at home to Everton.

Winks had an injection on his troublesome ankle on Monday, but is not available this weekend.

Toby Alderweireld and Danny Rose are also out as they continue to recover from hamstring and knee injuries respectively.

New Everton signing Cenk Tosun is set for his debut against Tottenham at Wembley.

Defender Michael Keane is still sidelined due to a gash to his foot which has reopened an old wound and is taking longer than expected to heal, while midfielder Idrissa Gana Gueye (hamstring) is also out.

Bournemouth will hand late fitness tests to Josh King and Junior Stanislas ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash with Arsenal.

Jermain Defoe and Tyrone Mings remain sidelined with long-term injury issues.

Midfielder Jack Wilshere could feature for Arsenal in their Premier League trip to Bournemouth on Sunday.

Aaron Ramsey is back in the squad following a hamstring issue, but Mesut Ozil (knee) was rated as only "50-50" by manager Arsene Wenger. Nacho Monreal (ankle), Laurent Koscielny (Achilles) and Olivier Giroud (hamstring) are still sidelined but Sead Kolasanic could return.

Liverpool vs Man City, Sunday 13th January, 4pm:

Liverpool top scorer Mohamed Salah has recovered from a groin injury and will be available to face Manchester City on Sunday.

Midfielder Jordan Henderson (hamstring) and Alberto Moreno (ankle) are still recovering from their injuries with the latter closer to a comeback, although not in time for this weekend.

Vincent Kompany will likely remain sidelined for Manchester City's trip to Liverpool on Sunday.

Gabriel Jesus (knee) went to Barcelona for his injury this week and Guardiola, who remains without Benjamin Mendy (knee) and Phil Foden (ankle), anticipates having his Brazilian striker back training in two-to-three weeks.

Man United vs Stoke City, Monday 14th January, 8pm:

Antonio Valencia could return for Manchester United's home clash with Stoke on Monday night.

The converted right-back has been out for almost a month with a hamstring injury but trained with Jose Mourinho's team in Dubai this week along with Michael Carrick, who has not played since September having undergone a procedure to treat an irregular heart rhythm.

Ashley Young still has one match left to serve on his suspension while Eric Bailly (ankle) and Zlatan Ibrahimovic (knee) are missing once again.

Stoke could have Erik Pieters and Bruno Martins Indi available for the away trip to Old Trafford.

There may be a debut for right-back Moritz Bauer after his switch from Rubin Kazan to the Potters, who have had first-team coach Eddie Niedzwiecki in temporary charge since the sacking of boss Mark Hughes last weekend.
