Jarrod Bowen won’t play against Aston Villa

Having limped off at Liverpool last weekend, Jarrod Bowen has been ruled out of Sunday’s match by David Moyes.

“I have no idea at the moment [when Bowen will return]. We are still trying to clear up exactly the injury, in all the scans, it does not look too bad but his action coming off the pitch made it look more serious than we thought.”

Return expected for Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo missed the Manchester derby with a hip problem but “trained for the whole session” yesterday and should feature against Spurs.

Everton winger Demarai Gray is back

Still the Toffees’ top-scoring FPL player this season, Demarai Gray is back from illness in time to face Wolves and Newcastle in Double Gameweek 29.

Covid cases at Liverpool

With no names given, Jurgen Klopp announced that “Covid is not over” for players and staff at Anfield.

Bruno Lage explains Max Kilman’s benching

Finally, Max Kilman had played every minute of Wolves’ league season up to Gameweek 27. Yet he was an unused substitute for Bruno Lage on Thursday night.

“Sometimes it’s a moment for a player to recover a little bit. I trust a lot in Max. I like, sometimes, to change some players and he’s played more than 30 games in a row, so sometimes you need to step back, recover and relax the pressure on your shoulders. He’ll return to the team for sure.”
