Pablo Mari and Albert Sambi Lokonga will both miss the match after testing positive for Covid-19 recently.

Tottenham vs West Ham United: Meanwhile, at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Spurs could be without Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, who missed Sunday’s draw with Liverpool.

Antonio Conte will also be without long-term absentee Cristian Romero, while West Ham will be missing Vladimir Coufal after he picked up a red card against Arsenal last week.

Brentford vs Chelsea: For Chelsea, it is set to be another match where Thomas Tuchel has very little to choose from. The German could only name four outfield players on the bench for Sunday’s goalless draw with Wolves.

Brentford, though, could be handed a boost with Ivan Toney understood to have recovered from coronavirus and the striker could be in contention.
