William Hill has Fowler as fourth favourite at 16/1, but with experienced names like Steve Clarke and Chris Hughton being linked to the job, it's unknown whether he's in the running.

Sterling impresses for England

Liverpool's Raheem Sterling impressed again on the international stage for England, take a look at how the Reds' forward played against Switzerland.

Impact: The Liverpool man played at the tip of the diamond and his pace threatened Switzerland. England had scored just three goals in their previous five internationals and needed some punch up front and he grabbed a perfect assist for Danny Welbeck's opener. One jinking run created panic in the Swiss defence before he was halted.

Shooting: He dragged one wide early and almost got on the end of Welbeck's pass for a tap in - although was let down by the striker's cross. He miss-cued a brilliant chance when he linked with Jordan Henderson in the second half. He shot over in injury time but it was not his night in front of goal and he needed to be sharper.

Workrate: One battle with Valon Behrami showed he is deceptively strong for his build and he did well to shake off the former West Ham man for England's opener. So much seems to rest on the Liverpool youngster and he had good awareness when he was able to make the difference and when to just keep England ticking over.

Link-up play: Sterling laid the ball on a plate for Welbeck's 59th-minute goal after initially taking the pass from Rooney. It was devastating from the trio who had not looked on the same wavelength up until that point. There were signs of a blossoming relationship between the front three and it is still early days. He played his part in Welbeck's second when he found Rickie Lambert to start the move.

Jordan Henderson injury worry for England

Roy Hodgson could be forced into a late change of plan after Liverpool's Jordan Henderson appeared to suffer an injury on the eve of England's Euro 2016 qualifier against Switzerland.

It is understood Henderson could not complete the full training session at St Jakob-Park on Sunday night and is therefore a doubt for Monday's game in Basle.

Should the Liverpool midfielder be ruled out, Hodgson will be left with just 18 players for the match - two of whom are goalkeepers.

The England manager may choose to move Phil Jones into midfield to replace Henderson or hand Aston Villa's Fabian Delph his first start. Another option open to the 67-year-old would be to deploy James Milner in central midfield.

Hodgson is already without 15 senior players for the match in Switzerland, which is England's first competitive outing since their disappointing World Cup campaign.

Daniel Sturridge was the latest man to withdraw on Friday due to a thigh injury.

The FA refused to comment on the latest fitness concern involving Henderson.
