Long set to miss City trip
Southampton are waiting to learn the extent of the hamstring injury suffered by striker Shane Long against Inter Milan on Thursday. The Republic of Ireland international pulled up three minutes into the second half of Saints' 1-0 defeat at the San Siro. Manager Claude Puel has yet to discover how serious the problem is, but he confirmed Long will not be available for Sunday's trip to face Manchester City in the Premier League. A prolonged absence for Long could lead to a run of games for Jay Rodriguez.
Success could miss Swansea game
Isaac Success is a major doubt for Watford's trip to Swansea City on Saturday after missing training this week with a muscle injury. The Nigerian striker made his first start for the club in Sunday's 1-0 win at Middlesbrough. Miguel Britos is fit for this weekend's trip but Craig Cathcart remains sidelined with a groin injury. Daryl Janmaat started training but the Swansea game will come too soon for him while striker Stefano Okaka is close to returning to training.
Cazorla faces fitness test
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Santi Cazorla is a doubt to face Middlesbrough on Saturday after picking up a knock in midweek. The 31-year-old was forced off in the 57th minute of the Gunners 6-0 thumping of Ludogorets on Wednesday which raised doubts over his fitness. Cazorla was seen watching from the sidelines at the Emirates with an ice pack held against his Achilles and Wenger confirmed that the midfielder will face a late fitness test ahead of the Middlesbrough match.

Smalling suffered a muscular injury
Chris Smalling is a doubt for Manchester United's trip to Stamford Bridge on Sunday after Jose Mourinho confirmed the defender had suffered a muscular injury during the Red Devils' 4-1 win over Fenerbahce. The 26-year-old has played every minute of the last four league games, and his absence will be a big blow ahead of a crucial clash against Chelsea.

Odubajo out for six months
Hull City are expected to be without Moses Odubajo for six months after the full-back fractured his patella. Odubajo suffered the serious knee injury during a non-contact incident in training, Hull confirmed in a statement. While Odubajo's knee ligaments remain intact, the 23-year-old will undergo surgery next week to stabilise the fracture. It is another blow for Odubajo, who was on the comeback trail after dislocating his patella during the off-season.
Terry suffers injury setback
John Terry is reportedly set to miss Jose Mourinho's return to Stamford Bridge on Sunday. Chelsea's skipper has suffered recently with an ankle injury which has kept him out of action since mid-September.
However, the 35-year-old made a comeback to the Blues' bench last weekend and he was expected to be fully fit for the crunch clash against Manchester United. But according to The Times, the experienced centre-half has sustained another ankle problem which is likely to rule him out of contention. Terry's condition will reportedly be assessed today.
Defour ruled out
Sean Dyche has confirmed that midfielder Steven Defour will miss Saturday's visit of Everton as Burnley look for their third home league win of the season. But the Clarets' boss hopes the Belgium international will not be a long-term absentee with the hamstring injury that forced his early substitution in last Sunday's 3-1 defeat at Southampton. Defour has made an instant impression at Turf Moor since his club record signing from Anderlecht in the summer, starting the last seven Premier League games.
Wenger expresses injury concerns over Cazorla
Arsene Wenger has suggested that Santi Cazorla could be an injury concern after the Spaniard was brought off during Arsenal's 6-0 demolition of Ludogorets. "He got a kick on the back of his Achilles tendon and I took him off as quick as possible," Wenger said. "In my view he was limping a little bit so I didn't want to take a gamble.

Hull City lose Mbokani
Hull City striker Dieumerci Mbokani has been ruled out of action for up to a month due to injury. The Dynamo Kiev loanee played for Congo before returning with a hamstring problem. Following a scan this week it has been determined that Mbokani has a grade two tear. Mbokani has played just twice since his arrival in England and now it seems Hull fans will have to wait a while longer to see the striker score his first goal for the club.
Milner to be assessed after head knock
Liverpool will assess the head injury James Milner suffered against Manchester United ahead of the West Brom clash, according to a report. The 30-year-old was substituted late on during the Reds' 0-0 draw with Manchester United on Monday. Prior to his withdrawal he clashed heads with Marcus Rashford as the pair contested a high ball. It is reported that the injury is not believed to be serious and Milner should at least be in contention to face Tony Pulis' side on Saturday at Anfield.
Alderweireld scan shows no lasting damage
Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld will avoid a lengthy spell on the sidelines after a scan revealed no major injury. The Belgium international missed Spurs' goalless draw with Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League after being carried off on a stretcher with a nasty-looking knee injury against West Bromwich Albion last Saturday. Alderweireld is unlikely to return for Saturday's match away at Bournemouth or the EFL Cup tie with Liverpool next Tuesday, but could feature in the home game against Leicester on October 29.
Hull City 18.10.16
Robertson facing spell out
Hull City have suffered a blow with the news that left-back Andy Robertson faces two months on the sidelines with a calf problem. The 22-year-old limped off in the 63rd minute of his team's 6-1 Premier League defeat at Bournemouth on Saturday and tests revealed bad news. Robertson will now also miss Scotland's World Cup qualifier against England at Wembley on November 11.
