This weekend's stats:

Saturday, October 6

Burnley (12) v Huddersfield (20)

Burnley defender James Tarkowski tweaked his groin during last weekend's victory over Cardiff, while midfielder Steven Defour finally made his comeback from a long-term knee injury in the Carabao Cup last week but has been given time off to address a personal issue. Winger Robbie Brady has suffered a small setback in his recovery from knee and then hamstring issues and will not be available until after the international break at the earliest, while defender Ben Gibson (hernia) and goalkeeper Nick Pope (shoulder) remain sidelined.

Huddersfield captain Christopher Schindler is hoping to recover from a knee injury in time. Central defender Schindler was forced out of last week's home defeat to Tottenham and will have a late fitness test, but fellow defender Terence Kongolo (hamstring) has been ruled out.

Last season: Huddersfield 0 Burnley 0, Burnley 0 Huddersfield 0

Top scorers (all competitions): Ashley Barnes (Burnley) 3; Philip Billing, Mathias Jorgensen, Jon Gorenc Stankovic (Huddersfield) 1.

Match odds: H 23-20 A 14-5 D 21-10

Referee: Chris Kavanagh (Lancashire)

Crystal Palace (13) v Wolves (9)

Striker Christian Benteke again misses out for Palace with a knee injury but Jordan Ayew is expected to continue to deputise. Scott Dann and Connor Wickham continue their recoveries from long-term knee injuries.

Wolves will set a new Premier League selection record from the start of the season if they remain unchanged at Selhurst Park. Boss Nuno Espirito Santo could name the same side for the eighth straight game since the opening day in August. The manager has no new fitness concerns so last week's goal hero Ivan Cavaleiro, who came off the bench to score with his first touch in the Premier League against Southampton, is likely to remain a substitute.

Leicester (8) v Everton (11)

Leicester will have an unchanged squad. Demarai Gray has made good progress in his recovery from an ankle injury but the winger will not be back until after the international break, while midfielder Matty James (Achilles) also remains out.

Everton manager Marco Silva suggested Bernard and Ademola Lookman could keep their places for the trip to the east midlands after impressing in the Carabao Cup. Although the Toffees were knocked out on penalties against Southampton, Bernard and Lookman were lively in attack and could feature. Andre Gomes (hamstring), Yerry Mina and Seamus Coleman (both foot) are expected to be fit after the international break but Saturday's match will come too soon.

Manchester United (10) v Newcastle (18)

Ashley Young is back in contention for Manchester United after missing the Champions League draw against Valencia with an unspecified injury. Marcos Rojo, Jesse Lingard and Ander Herrera also sat out the midweek match through injury and remain absent this weekend, when Phil Jones, Andreas Pereira and Diogo Dalot will be hoping to be involved after being left out of the squad in midweek.

Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez will make late checks on defenders Paul Dummett and Federico Fernandez. Both men missed last weekend's 2-0 home defeat to Leicester with hamstring injuries and will be assessed ahead of kick-off. Striker Salomon Rondon is still out with a thigh injury, while central defender Florian Lejeune continues his recovery from knee ligament damage.

Tottenham (4) v Cardiff (19)

Jan Vertonghen faces a scan on Monday to determine the full extent of his hamstring injury. The Belgium defender could be out for six weeks and none of Spurs' injured players are available to return at Wembley.

Junior Hoilett has recovered from illness to take his place in the Cardiff squad. He missed Sunday's 2-1 home defeat to Burnley with a virus but has trained fully this week. Aron Gunnarsson (knee) remains out, but Bluebirds boss Neil Warnock is hopeful the Iceland midfielder might be available for the visit of Fulham after the international break.

Match odds: H 1-4 A 11-1 D 24-5

Referee: Mike Dean (Wirral)

Watford (6) v Bournemouth (7)

Watford winger Gerard Deulofeu is in contention for a first appearance of the season. The former Barcelona player's recovery from a foot injury has been hampered by a hip and abdominal problem, but he should be available along with Stefano Okaka, Miguel Britos and Sebastian Prodl, who have all resumed training. Defender Marc Navarro has picked up a minor fitness issue so will not feature against the Cherries, while Daryl Janmaat (knee) and midfielder Tom Cleverley (Achilles) both continue their own rehabilitation.

Bournemouth have no fresh injury concerns. Winger Junior Stanislas, fit again after knee surgery, came off the bench to score a late penalty in the 2-1 win over Crystal Palace on Monday night so should feature again. Left-back Charlie Daniels is closing in on a return from his knee problem, while midfielder Kyle Taylor (calf) also continues his rehabilitation.

Last season: Watford 2 Bournemouth 2, Bournemouth 0 Watford 2

Sunday, October 7

Fulham v Arsenal

Fulham defenders Joe Bryan (hamstring) and Timothy Fosu-Mensah (dislocated shoulder) have been ruled out, joining midfielder Neeskens Kebano (ankle) on the sidelines. Defender Alfie Mawson is in contention to return following a back injury, while fit-again midfielder Tom Cairney is pushing to start.

Arsenal head coach Unai Emery is likely to make wholesale changes. He made nine alterations for the 3-0 Europa League win away to Qarabag on Thursday and will be hoping to have Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang back from illness, while Aaron Ramsey could feature as he waits for his wife to give birth. Petr Cech (hamstring), Ainsley Maitland-Niles (leg), Laurent Koscielny (Achilles) and Konstantinos Mavropanos (groin) are missing but Henrikh Mkhitaryan is back in the squad after missing the trip to Azerbaijan.

Last season: No corresponding fixture

Last five league matches: Fulham W D L D L; Arsenal W W W W W

Top scorers (all competitions): Aleksandar Mitrovic (Fulham) 5; Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang & Danny Welbeck (Arsenal) 4.

Match odds: H 18-5 A 4-6 D 10-3

Referee: Paul Tierney (Lancashire)

Liverpool (2) v Manchester City (1)

Liverpool are waiting on the fitness of midfielder Naby Keita. The Guinean was carried off with a back spasm during the Champions League loss to Napoli on Wednesday and manager Jurgen Klopp was unsure whether he would be able to train ahead of the match. If Keita does not make it, Jordan Henderson is likely to start. Forward Adam Lallana is back in full training after a groin problem.

Kevin De Bruyne has a chance of featuring for City after returning to training following a knee injury. Left-back Benjamin Mendy is also back in contention after recovering from a foot problem but midfielder Ilkay Gundogan (hamstring) is doubtful and Fabian Delph is still on the sidelines. Goalkeeper Claudio Bravo is a long-term absentee with a ruptured Achilles.

Last season: Liverpool 4 Man City 3, Man City 5 Liverpool 0

Last five league matches: Liverpool W W W W D; Man City D W W W W

Top scorers (all competitions): Sadio Mane & Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool) 4; Sergio Aguero (Man City) 8.

Match odds: H 31-20 A 17-10 D 5-2

Referee: Martin Atkinson (West Yorkshire)

Southampton (16) v Chelsea (3)

Southampton expect to have forward Shane Long back in contention. The Republic of Ireland international missed last weekend's defeat at Wolves due to a toe problem. Goalkeeper Alex McCarthy, defender Ryan Bertrand and winger Mohamed Elyounoussi have each returned to training following minor injury problems and should be available for selection.

Eden Hazard is expected to start for Chelsea as Maurizio Sarri looks set to revert to his first-choice line-up. The Blues made eight changes for Thursday night's Europa League win over Hungarian champions Vidi, with Hazard introduced off the substitutes' bench. Defenders Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Antonio Rudiger and Marcos Alonso were among those afforded a rest who are set to return, while Olivier Giroud and Jorginho are also set to start.

Last season: Southampton 2 Chelsea 3, Chelsea 1 Southampton 0
