Captain Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and defender Yan Valery have also completed their respective suspensions when sitting out the midweek FA Cup replay defeat against Derby.

Defender Maya Yoshida is on international duty with Japan at the Asian Cup while left-back Ryan Bertrand (back), midfielder Mario Lemina (abdominal) and striker Michael Obafemi (hamstring) are all still unavailable.
