defender from Portugal Cancelo will serve his ban for the visit of Spain, but Dalot does not merit to be benched following his two-goal performance on matchday five, thus the Man City player could switch to his left-back position in this situation. In that situation, Nuno Mendes and Mario Rui would be relegated to the sidelines despite the fact that the former assisted on Fernandes' goal on Saturday and the latter saw blood trickling down Cristiano Ronaldo's face following a collision with Tomas Vaclik in Santos. The former Manchester United player survived the entire game, but Jota—who came off the bench to add the final goal against the Czech Republic—is more than qualified to fill in at number nine.
Dani Carvajal and Diego Llorente did not represent Spain in the defeat to Switzerland. According to Enrique, he left both defenders out of the team because they would have been suspended from the match against Portugal if they had received a booking at the weekend. As a result, a rested Carvajal can anticipate replacing Cesar Azpilicueta on the right side, and Enrique definitely needs to think about calling back Morata after Asensio was substituted on Saturday shortly after the hour mark. Given the rapid turnaround and Rodri and Koke's return to a revitalized Roja lineup, the Barcelona-themed midfield of Gavi, Pedri, and Sergio Busquets may also be divided.
Ivan Toney, Ben Chilwell, and Marc Guehi were all omitted by Southgate from his team for the trip to San Siro, but all three were included in this squad instead of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Fikayo Tomori, Jarrod Bowen, and James Ward-Prowse. While Jack Grealish is currently serving a suspension of his own, John Stones will also be eligible to play after serving a suspension for the victory over Italy. Southgate is also optimistic that Jordan Henderson, who is recovering from a hamstring injury, will be able to participate in some capacity on Monday. However, the Liverpool player might not be given a start. Bukayo Saka in particular found it difficult to adjust to his left-wing back duty at San Siro, and Southgate will undoubtedly consider many changes this week. Aaron Ramsdale, Kieran Trippier, Luke Shaw, and Mason Mount are just a few of the players available to provide new legs.
Prior to the defeat to Hungary, Germany lost mainstays Leon Goretzka and Manuel Neuer of Bayern Munich to COVID-19 infections, while Julian Brandt was also had to leave the camp due to a different sickness. Thilo Kehrer, Nico Schlotterbeck, or Matthias Ginter will fill in for Real Madrid center-back Antonio Rudiger, who will miss this match after receiving his second caution of the competition on Friday. Germany did not discover any new injury worries in Leipzig. Kai Havertz may expect to force his way into the starting XI today after the Bayern-based Mannschaft attack and Timo Werner failed to impress last time. Jamal Musiala will also be motivated to perform well after choosing to represent Germany at the senior level rather than England.
The absences of players like Paul Pogba, Presnel Kimpembe, Ibrahima Konate, Lucas Hernandez, N'Golo Kante, Anthony Martial, Kingsley Coman, and Benzema for France's games in September amount to nothing short of an injury crisis for manager Deschamps. Deschamps has also experienced the injury losses of Adrien Rabiot, Hugo Lloris, Theo Hernandez, and Boubacar Kamara since picking his team. Lucas Digne, Hernandez's substitute, withdrew due to an ankle injury and was replaced by Adrien Truffert. Given the abundance of seasoned stars now on the sidelines, players like Mike Maignan and William Saliba can push their claims for starting positions, and after returning to the French team this month, Ousmane Dembele and Olivier Giroud should each have a strong chance of starting.
The tall number nine of Austria, Sasa Kalajdzic, suffered a devastating ACL injury during his first 45 minutes of play with Wolverhampton Wanderers and would require at least six months to recuperate. France are not the only team lamenting their own physical issues. Austria is also without Valentino Lazaro, Florian Grillitsch, Stefan Ilsanker, and Martin Hinteregger, the latter of whom retired from football in the summer after links to a far-right extremist emerged. Konrad Laimer of RB Leipzig is another long-term injury concern for Austria. Rangnick has seen Bologna's Marko Arnautovic open the Serie A season with six goals in seven games despite Kalajdzic's absence, and the 33-year-old could start here. Meanwhile, Kevin Danso will not play because he has been suspended.
A number of top players, including Kevin De Bruyne, will return for Belgium since a depleted squad was chosen for the Poland encounter. Thibaut Courtois will start between the pipes, while Dedryck Boyata—who is still without a club—might play in the back three—will take his position. The left wing-back position is open to Yannick Carrasco, with Eden Hazard continuing to occupy the position further down that line.
Page must choose between starting Kieffer Moore or Johnson in the final third while Gareth Bale is anticipated to rejoin the Wales XI. Depending on whether Connor Roberts plays ahead of Rhys Norrington-Davies or Neco Williams, the wing-back positions could be used. Joe Morrell might partner Matt Smith, who started against the Netherlands, in the center of the field because Joe Allen and Aaron Ramsey are both out of the squad.
Despite the fact that Scotland's captain Andy Robertson will miss all three of their games this month due to injury, Kieran Tierney, a former Celtic full-back, has just returned to the Arsenal squad, which at least makes up for Andy Robertson's absence. Tierney should start. In the meanwhile, Jon McLaughlin, Grant Hanley, and Jacob Brown have all left the team. Robby McCrorie, a goalie for Rangers, has been called up to take Jon McLaughlin's place. Due to the absence of John Souttar and Liam Cooper, Hibernian center back Ryan Porteous has been called up for the first time. Ryan Jack and Kenny McLean, who play in the middle, are also back in the running after lengthy injuries. Billy Gilmour, Jack Hendry, and Anthony Ralston might also play despite their little playing time this semester.
Oleksandr Zinchenko of Arsenal, who recently had a calf injury in training and might not be able to play until next month, will be unavailable for Ukraine while Scotland will be without an equally significant left-footer in Robertson. Mykola Shaparenko of Dynamo Kyiv joined Zinchenko on the injured list earlier this month after rupturing his ACL during his team's Europa League match against Fenerbahce. Though the team appears to be familiar, Mykhaylo Mudryk of Shakhtar Donetsk and captain Andriy Yarmolenko both ought to start in support of Roman Yaremchuk or Artem Dovbyk up front.
Allan Saint-Maximin and Bruno Guimaraes will undoubtedly have a better chance of playing against Bournemouth thanks to the additional rest week; the two were "near" to starting versus Palace before ultimately being sidelined. Karl Darlow, Emil Krafth, and Jonjo Shelvey are unquestionably out for Newcastle, and Callum Wilson is questionable due to a thigh injury. As a result, Alexander Isak will once again start in the final third and attempt to score his first goal at St James' Park. In the final third, Ryan Fraser and Miguel Almiron will be fighting for position against Jacob Murphy and Elliot Anderson, while Saint-impending Maximin's comeback also poses a threat to the latter.
While Ben Pearson and Joe Rothwell are anticipated to be sidelined until after the international break, Bournemouth's Junior Stanislas resumed team training last week and has a good chance of playing on Saturday. David Brooks' recuperation has been hampered by the Welshman's hamstring pain, and O'Neil will likely use a very same lineup to the one that defeated Forest in this match. At the City Ground, Jordan Zemura was substituted by Ryan Fredericks at halftime; nevertheless, it is debatable whether or not Zemura should have remained on the field and might now be a member of the same Cherries starting lineup.
Chiquinho, a recent addition to Wolves, is also expected to miss a significant amount of time due to a knee injury he suffered earlier in the summer. Chiquinho is expected to miss many months of activity as a result. Jimenez was noticeably absent from the match against Southampton, and despite suggestions that he had a good chance of showing up for the rescheduled match against Liverpool, he is still not available. Although Hwang Hee-chan is ready to step in if Costa needs more time to adjust, Costa should be prepared to make his Liga debut for Lage's team against the defending champions.
Aymeric Laporte, who sustained his knee injury at Molineux last season, should return to duty after the international break after returning to training, giving the visitors some additional good news on the injury front. However, because of the short turnaround time and the absence of Laporte, it is unlikely that Kyle Walker will be available. Regardless, Guardiola should make the necessary substitutions. Phil Foden and Bernardo Silva are prepared to return to the attacking line for City, and Ruben Dias is anticipated to join them. Jack Grealish and Riyad Mahrez are likely to be sent to the sidelines.
Lucas Moura, who is expected to be out until after the international break due to a tendon problem, should be the only absentee for Tottenham manager Conte once more. Dejan Kulusevski was once again kept on the bench by the Lilywhites manager because he is still hesitant to remove Son Heung-min from the starting lineup. The Sweden international may have to accept a substitute role once more because Conte appears eager to boost Son's confidence before the international break. Son may have the best chance to break his goal drought against 20th-placed Leicester, but Conte may still make alterations to the starting lineup as Ryan Sessegnon and Yves Bissouma compete for the starting position.
For the trip to Tottenham, Rodgers should only be without long-term absentees Ricardo Pereira and Ryan Bertrand for the bottom-of-the-table team, but Dennis Praet will need to recover from a foot injury. Patson Daka and Kelechi Iheanacho are expected to keep their spots after both scoring at the Amex, but Jamie Vardy was benched against Brighton despite his propensity for scoring against the Big Six clubs. In order to counter Conte's system with a three-man backline, which Tottenham found difficult to penetrate against Sporting in midweek, Daniel Amartey's return to fitness may very well be necessary. However, it is unclear whether Caglar Soyuncu will push his way back into Rodgers's strategy.
