Burnley vs Everton, Saturday 3rd March, 12:30

Burnley are set to have the fit-again James Tarkowski back involved on Saturday when they take on Everton at Turf Moor.

The defender, sidelined for the last four matches, stepped up his recovery from a groin problem by playing the full duration of a behind-closed-doors game against Preston on Tuesday.

It remains to be seen if there is any involvement for goalkeeper Tom Heaton, who also played for the entirety of the Preston match - the goalkeeper has been out since September when he dislocated his shoulder.

It is expected Scott Arfield (calf) will still be unavailable.

On-loan Manchester City defender Eliaquim Mangala is unlikely to play for Everton again this season because of the knee injury he sustained last month.

Fellow defenders Seamus Coleman (thigh), Leighton Baines (ankle) and Phil Jagielka are all expected to return to the squad that will face Burnley at Turf Moor.

However, the game arrives too soon for centre-back Ramiro Funes Mori, who is set to play for the under-23s again as he builds up his fitness after spending 10 months out with a knee injury.

Leicester hope to have Shinji Okazaki back in contention for the visit of Bournemouth.

The Japan international striker will be assessed ahead of Saturday's game, having missed the last three matches with a knee problem.

Okazaki resumed training this week and is the only injury concern for manager Claude Puel, whose side are without a win in four Premier League outings.

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has reported no fresh injury concerns ahead of Saturday's Premier League match at Leicester.

Winger Jordon Ibe, forward Lys Mousset, defender Brad Smith, midfielders Harry Arter and Marc Pugh all featured in a Premier League Cup tie this week to build up match fitness.

Forward Jermain Defoe should be involved again after coming off the bench during last weekend's 2-2 draw with Newcastle on his return from an ankle injury, but defender Tyrone Mings continues his rehabilitation from a back problem.

Stoke have captain Ryan Shawcross and striker Peter Crouch available again for Saturday's crucial Premier League trip to fellow strugglers Southampton.

Both players have had ankle injuries with Shawcross missing last week's draw at Leicester and Crouch the last two games.

Danish goalkeeper Jakob Haugaard is likely to be on the bench with Lee Grant (broken wrist) sidelined while midfielder Stephen Ireland (calf) is still out.

Huddersfield pair Philip Billing and Chris Lowe return to contention for Saturday's Premier League game against Tottenham at Wembley.

Midfielder Billing missed last week's win at West Brom through illness, while left-back Lowe has been sidelined for three games due to an ankle injury.

Aaron Mooy is expected to be back in full training next week after recovering from an infected cut on a knee and striker Elias Kachunga (knee) is closing in on his return.

Watford expect to have midfielder Will Hughes available again following a hamstring problem for the Premier League match against West Brom.

On-loan Barcelona winger Gerard Deulofeu, though, faces a spell out after suffering a stress fracture in his foot during the win over Everton.

Defender Craig Cathcart is set to resume training following his long-term knee problem, but midfielder Nathaniel Chalobah (knee), Younes Kaboul (foot), Tom Cleverley (thigh) and Isaac Success (knee) remain unavailable.

West Brom have an unchanged squad for the trip to Watford but boss Alan Pardew has said he will make changes to his team.

Pardew is in desperate need of a win, with his side bottom of the Premier League table and seven points adrift of safety, and he could recall the likes of Gareth McAuley, Jake Livermore, Chris Brunt and Hal Robson-Kanu.

On-loan striker Daniel Sturridge (hamstring) remains a couple of weeks away from a return to fitness while Nacer Chadli (hip) and James Morrison (Achilles) are still out as well.

Andre Ayew is set to make the first start of his second Swansea spell when his former club West Ham visit the Liberty Stadium.

Ayew has made a couple of substitute appearances since rejoining the Swans from West Ham in January, but he is now ready to start in attack alongside his brother Jordan.

Swansea have no new injury concerns following their FA Cup replay win over Sheffield Wednesday, and Lukasz Fabianski, Kyle Naughton and Alfie Mawson are all set to return for the Premier League clash after being rested in midweek.

West Ham have no new injury concerns for the trip to Swansea.

Striker Andy Carroll and midfield duo Pedro Obiang and Edimilson Fernandes remain long-term absentees.

Wing-back Arthur Masuaku serves the fifth match of his six-game suspension for spitting.

Liverpool midfielder James Milner is a minor doubt ahead of the visit of Newcastle with a knock sustained in last week's win over West Ham.

Captain Jordan Henderson is likely to return to the starting line-up after being rested at the weekend while Danny Ings has recovered from a cold to rejoin the squad.

Midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum and youngster Ben Woodburn are still struggling with illness while defender Nathaniel Clyne needs to sharpen up his match fitness after a first competitive outing of the season for the under-23s.

Midfielder Jonjo Shelvey is out of Newcastle's Premier League trip to former club Liverpool.

Shelvey damaged a knee in last Saturday's 2-2 draw at Bournemouth and while manager Rafael Benitez does not believe the damage is serious, he is still being assessed.

Striker Dwight Gayle (hamstring) and midfielder Matt Ritchie (illness) are fit, but frontman Islam Slimani (thigh) and full-back Jesus Gamez (ankle) are still out.

Brighton have no new injury concerns ahead of their Premier League clash against Arsenal on Sunday.

The Seagulls have a nearly fully-fit squad for the visit of Arsene Wenger's side, with midfielder Jiri Skalak in contention having overcome an ankle injury.

Steve Sidwell (ankle) remains a long-term absentee but Chris Hughton has everyone else available.

Jack Wilshere is a doubt for Arsenal's Premier League trip to Brighton on Sunday afternoon.

The England midfielder missed Thursday's 3-0 home defeat to Manchester City with a minor ankle issue and could also sit out the game on the south coast.

Nacho Monreal (back) and Alexandre Lacazette (knee) are also absent as manager Arsene Wenger admits he is likely to make changes with one eye looking ahead to the Europa League trip to AC Milan.

Kyle Walker could miss Manchester City's Premier League clash with Chelsea on Sunday with a calf problem.

The England full-back limped out of Thursday's 3-0 win at Arsenal and is now a doubt for the visit of the reigning champions.

Raheem Sterling could also be absent as he overcomes a muscular problem with Fernandinho (hamstring) and Benjamin Mendy (knee) definitely out and Fabian Delph banned.

Midfielder Ross Barkley could return to the Chelsea matchday squad for Sunday's Premier League clash at Manchester City.

Barkley has returned to training following a hamstring injury and head coach Antonio Conte is yet to decide whether to select the former Everton forward on the bench.

Defenders David Luiz (ankle) and Ethan Ampadu (hamstring) and midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko (undisclosed) are out.
