Summer signings Ravel Morrison and Lys Mousset could miss out again, although the former has been told he could get a chance to play in Tuesday’s Carabao Cup game against Blackburn.

Leicester are expected to be without Ben Chilwell for a second successive week after the full-back picked up a hip complaint, but he is ‘likely’ to return against Bournemouth next weekend.

Record signing Ismaila Sarr could make his Watford debut on Saturday, but there are fitness doubts over Roberto Pereyra and Abdoulaye Doucoure.

But the big blow for the Hornets is captain Troy Deeney, who has been ruled out for several weeks after undergoing knee surgery.

West Ham have a fully fit squad to choose from, barring long-term absentee Winston Reid (knee).

It means Jack Wilshere, Carlos Sanchez and Andriy Yarmolenko are all in contention, as well as captain Mark Noble, who has missed the past two games with a calf injury. Sebastian Haller and Felipe Anderson are also ready for selection after picking up knocks.

Stat of the match: Watford’s last two Premier League home games have seen them lose 1-4 (vs West Ham) and 0-3 (vs Brighton). Only three sides have lost three consecutive home games in the competition by a margin of 3+ goals – Bradford in 2000-01, Derby in 2007-08 and Swansea in 2016-17.

Liverpool have no fresh injury concerns but Adrian is again likely to deputise for the injured Alisson. Fabinho and Jordan Henderson are likely to return to midfield in place of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and James Milner. Naby Keita remains unavailable as he continues his recovery from a muscle strain.

Granit Xhaka and Mesut Ozil are back in training and could play a part for Arsenal this weekend. Rob Holding (knee) has also started participating in full training. However, Emile Smith Rowe (groin), Hector Bellerin (knee), Kieran Tierney (groin) and Dinos Mavropanos (groin) all remain sidelined.

Stat of the match: Liverpool have won 11 consecutive Premier League matches, equalling their best-ever winning streak in the competition, previously set between February and April 2014 under Brendan Rodgers. Victory against Arsenal would see Liverpool equal their longest winning run in league competition (12 between April-October 1990 under Kenny Dalglish).

Bournemouth are without Dan Gosling (groin), David Brooks (ankle), Simon Francis (knee), Lloyd Kelly (ankle), Junior Stanislas (knee) and Arnaut Danjuma (ankle). Lewis Cook (knee) has returned to first-team training.

Manchester City full-back Oleksandr Zinchenko is expected to return after suffering cramp against Liverpool. John Stones (thigh) remains doubtful while Leroy Sane (ACL) and Benjamin Mendy (knee) are long-term absentees.

Stat of the match: Man City’s 100%-win record in eight games against Bournemouth is the best in English top-flight history. Man City have won those eight matches against the Cherries by an aggregate score of 25-3.

How to watch: Bournemouth vs Man City is live on Renault Super Sunday from 1pm; kick-off 2pm. Sky Sports customers can watch in-game clips in the live match blog on the Sky Sports website and app. Highlights will also be published on the Sky Sports digital platforms and the Sky Sports Football YouTube channel shortly after the final whistle.

Tottenham forward Heung-Min Son is expected to return after serving a three-game suspension while midfielder Dele Alli faces a late fitness test. Ryan Sessegnon (hamstring) is unlikely to make his debut as he recovers from injury. Juan Foyth (ankle) is still out.

Allan Saint-Maximin is ‘OK’ to feature for Newcastle after picking up a hamstring injury on his debut against Arsenal. Fellow summer signing Joelinton is also available. However, it is still too early for Andy Carroll (fitness) or Dwight Gayle (hamstring), but Christian Atsu (knee) has been back in training this week.

Stat of the match: This is Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino’s 500th game as a manager in all competitions in his career. Excluding other ‘big six’ sides, against no side has he lost more Premier League games than he has against Newcastle.

Wolves full-back Matt Doherty returned to training this week after missing the midweek visit to Torino after suffering from illness, though he remains a doubt for the game.

Burnley’s Robbie Brady has returned to full training but will miss out against Wolevs. Danny Drinkwater is also absent but is likely to feature midweek in the Carabao Cup. Steven Defour is out but has returned to light training.

Stat of the match: This will be the first top-flight meeting between Wolves and Burnley where neither side were newly promoted since February 1976, with Wolves winning that fixture 3-2.
