“Kova will still be out, BenChilwell will be out, and Callum will still be out,” confirmed the boss.
“Toni Rudiger was in training yesterday, the same for Reece James. Hopefully, they can do the full training today and give us a green light. We have hopes they can be in the squad and play tomorrow.
“It’s the same for Andreas. We will need another examination because he felt sick. He will come back to the training ground today.
“Ross Barkley is sick as well and will not be in the squad.”
