West Ham and Liverpool kick off Gameweek 35 on Saturday lunchtime, with the deadline to make changes falling 90 minutes before the start of the match. Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola’s pre-Nottingham Forest press conference took place straight after the Brighton game, meaning fans are none the wiser on whether Haaland will be fit for Sunday’s contest. Guardiola did, however, clarify that the Norwegian ‘feels better’.

FPL managers will be confronted with a gamble on Haaland, while Palmer’s situation seems more assured. Chelsea’s top scorer missed the 5-0 defeat at Arsenal earlier this week but Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed that he’s back in training and expected to take part in the trip to Aston Villa after recovering from illness.

Having missed the 5-2 thrashing against Crystal Palace with a back issue, West Ham boss David Moyes has revealed that the 27-year-old goal machine has a ‘good chance’ of being available to face Liverpool in the early kick-off. Ivan Toney has not featured for Brentford since coming off early in the 3-3 draw with Aston Villa three weeks ago.

Manager Thomas Frank claims that his star striker is ‘getting better’ and there is ‘hope’ he can be involved in the trip to Everton following a hip injury, although his words were hardly conclusive. Liverpool’s forward line faltered against Everton last time out, and Jurgen Klopp won’t have Diogo Jota (hip) to call on for the West Ham game as the Portuguese, along with his team-mate Conor Bradley, is yet to return to team training. The Tottenham forward Richarlison has been unavailable for almost a month due to a knee injury. However, Ange Postecoglou has now confirmed that his knee injury has subsided and he will be available, along with Pedro Porro, to face Arsenal on Sunday.

The Dutchman Cody Gakpo’s return is a routine one after missing the Everton defeat to attend the birth of his child. It remains to be seen whether Klopp looks to shake things up after poor performances from Mohamed Salah, Luis Diaz and Darwin Nunez at Goodison Park. Eberechi Eze is on fire with seven goal contributions in his last nine appearances. He would therefore be a big miss for the Fulham game on Saturday if a knee injury forces him to sit it out, with a late fitness test scheduled to determine whether Oliver Glasner can select the 25-year-old.
