NEW YEAR’S DAY’S GAME

EVERTON VS. MAN UNITED

EVERTON: Sam Allardyce will monitor James McCarthy and Yannick Bolasie before deciding whether to start the duo. McCarthy lasted just half of Saturday’s 2-1 loss to Bournemouth at Dean Court. Idrissa Gueye should feature again after recovering from hamstring trouble, with Leighton Baines and Ross Barkley still sidelined.
Provisional squad: Pickford, Kenny, Williams, Keane, Holgate, Martina, Schneiderlin, Davies, Sigurdsson, Bolasie, Calvert-Lewin, Robles, Jagielka, Baningime, McCarthy, Besic, Lookman, Lennon, Vlasic, Mirallas, Klaassen, Niasse, Sandro, Rooney.

MAN UNITED: Romelu Lukaku will miss at least two games after suffering a head injury against Southampton, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic faces a month out with a recurrence of his knee problems. Wing-back Ashley Young is suspended for three games after accepting a violent conduct charge after elbowing Southampton’s Dusan Tadic. Michael Carrick, Marouane Fellaini and Eric Bailly remain sidelined, with question marks over Chris Smalling, Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian.
Provisional squad: De Gea, Romero, Pereira, Tuanzebe, Darmian, Jones, Smalling, Valencia, Lindelof, Rojo, Shaw, Blind, McTominay, Pogba, Herrera, Matic, Lingard, Martial, Rashford, Mata, Mkhitaryan.

TUESDAY’S GAMES

SOUTHAMPTON VS. CRYSTAL PALACE

SOUTHAMPTON: Alex McCarthy could keep his place in goal after his clean sheet against Manchester United. Saints are still without striker Charlie Austin, who is both suspended and affected by a hamstring injury. Left-back Ryan Bertrand (hamstring) could be back in contention.
Provisional squad: McCarthy, Forster, Taylor, Hoedt, Stephens, Yoshida, Gardos, Pied, McQueen, Romeu, Bednarek, Bertrand, Lemina, Hojbjerg, Ward-Prowse, Davis, Boufal, Tadic, Redmond, Long, Gabbiadini.

CRYSTAL PALACE: Roy Hodgson hopes to have Ruben Loftus-Cheek, James McArthur and Jeffrey Schlupp available after knocks. Jason Puncheon and Scott Dann also suffered injuries against Man City, meaning that with Mamadou Sakho and Joel Ward also injured, Martin Kelly and Damien Delaney will vie for selection in central defence.
Provisional squad: Speroni, Hennessey, Kelly, Tomkins, Riedewald, Delaney, Schlupp, Van Aanholt, Souare, Townsend, Loftus-Cheek, Cabaye, Milivojevic, McArthur, Mutch, Ladapo, Sako, Kaikai, Zaha, Benteke.

SWANSEA VS. TOTTENHAM

SWANSEA: Carlos Carvalhal will be without full-back Kyle Naughton after accepting a Football Association violent conduct charge for a stamp on Watford’s Stefano Okaka during Saturday’s 2-1 win at Vicarage Road. Tammy Abraham is a doubt with a niggling stomach injury and fellow striker Wilfried Bony is battling a hamstring problem, while Ki Sung-yueng (calf) and Kyle Bartley (knee ligaments) are likely to miss out again.
Provisional squad: Fabianski, Fernandez, Mawson, Olsson, Mesa, Carroll, Fer, Ayew, Narsingh, Abraham, Bony, Nordfeldt, Rangel, Van der Hoorn, Clucas, Sanches, Fulton, Dyer, Routledge, McBurnie.

TOTTENHAM: Harry Kane missed training on Friday due to a cold but has continued to be assessed, with boss Mauricio Pochettino hopeful he could be ready. Victor Wanyama could make his first appearance since August as he steps up his return after long-term knee trouble.
Provisional squad: Lloris, Vorm, Gazzaniga, Rose, Davies, Walker-Peters, Vertonghen, Sanchez, Dier, Foyth, Trippier, Aurier, Winks, Amos, Wanyama, Sissoko, Dembele, Alli, Eriksen, Son, Lamela, Llorente, Sterling, Kane.

WEST HAM VS. WEST BROM

WEST HAM: Mark Noble is battling to shake off a hamstring injury and Michail Antonio has yet to resume training after a groin problem. Reece Oxford is back from a loan spell at Borussia Monchengladbach, but Sam Byram (hamstring), Jose Fonte and Edimilson Fernandes (both ankle) are still out.
Provisional squad: Adrian, Hart, Masuaku, Zabaleta, Collins, Ogbonna, Reid, Cresswell, Kouyate, Oxford, Rice, Obiang, Quina, Lanzini, Ayew, Arnautovic, Carroll, Sakho, Hernandez.

WEST BROM: With just 48 hours between games Alan Pardew could recall James McClean, Oliver Burke, Grzegorz Krychowiak and Allan Nyom. Salomon Rondon (hamstring) is still struggling while Nacer Chadli (hip) and James Morrison (Achilles) are out for Albion.
Provisional squad: Foster, Myhill, Palmer, Hegazi, McAuley, Evans, Nyom, Dawson, Gibbs, Brunt, Field, Livermore, Phillips, Krychowiak, Barry, Burke, Yacob, McClean, Robson-Kanu, Rondon, Rodriguez.

MAN CITY VS. WATFORD

MAN CITY: Gabriel Jesus is out, most probably along with Kevin De Bruyne, after they suffered injuries in Sunday’s 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace.
