What’s the team news?

The postponements and international hiatus may have done Patrick Vieira some favors, as the Eagles boss could see long-term absentees Jack Butland and James McArthur return to action.

However, Nathan Ferguson’s ankle injury will keep him out for a while longer.

There has been no clear return date for James Tomkins, and young Chris Richards suffered a minor hit on his international duty with the USA.

Elsewhere, Graham Potter will be hopeful that he can reintroduce N’Golo Kante and Edouard Mendy to the starting lineups, as both returned to training camp this week.
