Shane Duffy (calf), Bernardo (knock), Leandro Trossard (groin) and Jose Izquierdo (knee) remain sidelined for your Seagulls but Leon Balogun can be obtained following a slight injury.

Charlie Nicholas prediction? They created a battling performance with 10 guys against Southampton, but theyre struggling, also they were picked by Bayern apart. Brighton on the other hand, if Leandro Trossard is fit, could cause problems. Unfortunately the results have never been too impressive. Some time is taken by new managers, but they are able to cause Spurs issues. Tottenham are there for the shooting at the moment – there isnt any togetherness and they could be squeezed by Brighton .
CHARLIE PREDCITS: 1-1 (11/2 with Sky Bet)
Jack Cork is not likely to feature for Burnley because of a shoulder injury. The midfielder suffered a slight fracture in his shoulder blade in last weeks 2-2 draw and will not be risked.
Danny Drinkwater has returned to light training, but he is a certain absentee, while Johann Berg Gudmundsson will probably be hoping for a return to activity, was an unused substitute from Villa, after over a month out with a calf problem.
Theo Walcott and andre Gomes is going to be appropriate for Everton that past week after returning to training. Gomes has been around for a month using a barbell issue but was operating with team-mates at Finch Farm this week, while Walcott has recovered in the head injury, he endured last weeks defeat to Manchester City.
Jean-Philippe Gbamin has returned to light training, but the summer signing is not yet prepared to come back from a thigh issue.
Stat of the game: Not one of those 10 Premier League games between Everton and Burnley have stopped as attractions – Burnley and Everton have won four and six of their encounters, respectively.
Follow and to watch: Follow the action live site. Highlights of the game will be published from 5.15pm on the Sky Sports website and app plus the Sky Sports Football YouTube station.
Charlie Nicholas forecast: it is the exact same scenario, and I do not go against Burnley frequently. Burnley are mid-table and won two of their opening seven games, but they are on the point of entering the top half and also have introduced a danger in each match, together using Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood are receiving the goals again. It is an venture but if one scores, the other has a day off! They are back to being solid defensively, so this year, I dont see difficulty, and that I expect this particular game to be won by them. I never understand what Marco Silva would like to achieve. When you have too many attacking options as he does, and it is not working, you have to try something different. There is no rhythm to Everton, no understanding and if things pan out the way I watch them at Burnley, Silva could be quite lucky to still be in his chair by the global break, using Everton possibly in the lowest three.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-1 (10/1 with Sky Bet)
Liverpool director Jurgen Klopp has a decision to make about whether to recall goalkeeper Alisson Becker for Leicesters visit.
The Brazil was sidelined by a calf injury suffered in the seasons opening match, but has returned with the team.
Centre-back Joel Matip will definitely miss out, however, with a minor knee problem which made him inaccessible to the midweek Champions League triumph over Red Bull Salzburg.
Leicesters former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is most likely to change a winning side in his return to Anfield.
Midfielder James Maddison has recovered from an ankle problem which forced him to miss last weekend to the 5-0 thrashing of Newcastle.
Summer registering Dennis Praet impressed against Newcastle, but the Belgium global is the method for Maddison.
Stat of the match: Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 43 home league matches (W33 D10) – the longest current run in the top five leagues, and Liverpools second-longest ever in top-flight history. Their previous top of 63 between February was finished by Leicester.
To watch and follow: Follow the actions with our dedicated live site. Highlights of the game will be released from 5.15pm on the Sky Sports site and program and also the Sky Sports Football YouTube channel.
Charlie Nicholas forecast: This really is the test for Leicester. Theyre the real deal and may be close to breaking into the top . They overcome Tottenham and ought to have got something from Man Utd, but theyll visit Anfield and accept them on. Liverpools defence isnt as great as last season and we understood that, but theyre just five points clear. Brendan Rodgers understands how dangerous their front will be, hell try to block the full-backs also which is not being defensive, it is being tactical. If Salzburg can score three occasions at Anfield then Im sure Leicester could grab a goal. Liverpool have performed well in a few and stumbled in other, so this could be the one in which they eventually falter.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-2 (16/1 with Sky Bet)
Norwich full-back Jamal Lewis will soon be available for the clash with Aston Villa, along with his knee problem maybe not as bad as initially feared. Veteran Northern Ireland goalkeeper Michael McGovern begins, together with Ralf Fahrmann (groin) joining Tim Krul (rear ) on the sidelines, although Archie Mair is going to be promoted by the U23s as cover.
Defender Ben Godfrey, place for a hernia operation throughout the worldwide break, will soon probably be available, full-back Sam Byram (ankle) and midfielder Todd Cantwell (hamstring) are slight doubts and centre-half Grant Hanley (groin) misses out. Midfielders Alex Tettey (groin), Mario Vrancic (H ), Tom Trybull (ankle), winger Onel Hernandez (knee) and defenders Christoph Zimmermann (foot) and Timm Klose (knee) all continue their rehabilitation.
Aston Villa manager Dean Smith has no new injury problems. Defenders Tyrone Mings (shin) and Matt Targett (hamstring), who picked up issues in last weekends 2-2 draw with Burnley, have trained this week and now are available for choice, whereas midfielder Henri Lansbury is back in contention after recovering from an ankle injury.
The game will probably come very soon for striker Jonathan Kodjia (fractured cheekbone) and James Chester (hamstring) remains out.
Stat of the match: Aston Villa have fell several league-high eight points from winning positions from the Premier League so far this year. Truly, 50 per cent of this comeback victories in the contest that term have been against Villa. (2/4).
How to watch and follow: Follow the actions with our dedicated live blog. Highlights of this game will be released from 5.15pm on the Sky Sports website and app and the Sky Sports Football YouTube channel.
Charlie Nicholas prediction: Villas defence is trying to cope with the better players at the Premier League. They might not score goals, but I believe theres goals from the group. Its possible to flip John McGinn and Jack Grealish away from home and Wesley is a danger. Norwich are a good opinion as we all understand. Defensively theyll leak goals, but how far can Todd Cantwell and Teemu Pukki consider them, alongside Emiliano Buendia along with Marco Stiepermann? They give you all that they have, but the first three are the key to moving forward – Villa may make the most of that.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 1-2 (10/1 with Sky Bet)
Watford midfielder Will Hughes may be set for a comeback using sat his sides past two games with injury, although this battle will come too soon for captain Troy Deeney, with the striker still having not recovered by a knee problem.
Meanwhile, the manager Quique Sanchez Flores might opt to start Roberto Pereyra after the forwards came on at half-time to get Gerard Deulofeu within their 2-0 loss at Wolves out time.
Sheffield United will be without David McGoldrick (groin) once again but Billy Sharp is back from suspension. Wilder has no fresh injury concerns.

How to watch and follow: Follow the actions with our committed live website. Highlights of the game will be released out of 5.15pm on the Sky Sports website and app and also the Sky Sports Football YouTube channel.
Charlie Nicholas prediction: Quique Sanchez Flores captured the point against Arsenal, but it has been downhill since. Two points is nowhere near good enough and I liked him the first time, although I enjoy this particular director. Sheffield United will feel frustrated following their effect. They will fight that year, but their pace and commitment is there for everyone to view. Watford will know they need to have over the line – they will get their first win of the year, although it will be a challenging game with lots of reservations.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-1 (8/1 with Sky Bet)
West Ham are with no goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski. The Poland worldwide will likely be sidelined when shooting a free-kick against Bournemouth weekend after sustaining an injury.
Midfielder Jack Wilshere is back to full fitness, though he recently missed a single day of practice with a slight muscle twinge, while defender Winston Reid remains on the long-term harm list.

Clips can be watched by sky Sports customers in the live game blog on program and the Sky Sports website. Highlights will also be printed on the Sky Sports Football YouTube station and the Sky Sports electronic programs soon after the final whistle.
Charlie Nicholas forecast: This really is a London derby. Crystal Palace are better but it is tough to tell sometimes. Wilfried Zaha looks like he may be over the move scenario, although Mark Noble is currently playing much better than he has. It was a stage for West Ham at Bournemouth when theyd have folded. Here is the ideal West Ham side Ive seen in a while and I believe Sebastian Haller are the fans favorite, finding the internet again.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 3-1 (14/1 with Sky Bet)
Arsenal have no fresh injury concerns as head coach Unai Emery prepares to welcome a plethora of regulars for Sundays Premier League trip of Bournemouth back.

Follow and how to watch: Follow the actions with our committed live site. Highlights of the game will be published soon after full time on the Sky Sports website and program plus the Sky Sports Football YouTube channel.
Charlie Nicholas prediction: This is really a game that I expect Arsenal win and to go. Bournemouth are ticking along nicely and will play the counter-attack, but they do not tend to get results on the street away at the huge sides. But with the defence of Arsenal is still fragile, this is another game to the Gunners. They should just have enough to get the win, but if Arsenal are one thing, theyre surprising.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 3-1 (10/1 with Sky Bet)

Charlie Nicholas prediction: Wolves could be awkward, however, Manchester City ought to have a day. If Liverpool drop points over the Saturday before, then it is a possibility they must take. City are excellent to see, and theyre only just getting started. Wolves are a dangerous side and they have their first win last week, but at the time theyve come in Thursdays tough trip to Besiktas, it might be too far for Nuno Espirito Santos side.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 3-1 (10/1 with Sky Bet)

Abraham has made his first England call-up. Chelsea are currently sitting in seventh which is acceptable – . It will be a season full of ups and downs to the Blues and it might just take its toll.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 1-1 (6/1 with Sky Bet)
Newcastle midfielder Isaac Hayden is frozen for the clash with Manchester United. Hayden was dismissed for a battle on the Dennis Praet of Leicester throughout the weekends 5-0 drubbing at the King Power Stadium and begins a three-match ban.
Yet, head coach Steve Bruce might be encouraged by the return of striker Dwight Gayle (calf), wing-back Jetro Willems (knee) and midfielder Jonjo Shelvey (hamstring), while defender Florian Lejeune (knee) is creating up suit workout, leaving just winger Matt Ritchie (ankle) on the casualty list.

You need to give the fans something at home, theyre an amazing bunch of fans. Manchester United are currently residing with 2 wins in seven in 10th, scrambling for points at home. Theres a good deal of demands set up but Solskjaer has his strategy for the childhood and also the team.
