Terry to miss Everton
John Terry will not play against Everton on Sunday after failing to recover from the ankle injury that kept him out of Wednesday's Europa League final. Eden Hazard and Ryan Bertrand are also sidelined with hamstring and knee problems respectively. A Chelsea victory would ensure third place and direct entry to the Champions League.
Mikel Arteta doubtful
Arsenal have a major doubt over midfielder Mikel Arteta (calf) for Sunday's final Premier League game at Newcastle. Jack Wilshere, set to have an operation on his troublesome ankle next week, is on stand-by should he deemed fit enough to start and play on painkillers. Striker Olivier Giroud returned from a three-match suspension. Midfielder Abou Diaby (knee) is a long-term absentee.
Kieran Richardson ruled out
Kieran Richardson has played his last game for Fulham this season after being ruled out of Sunday's Premier League finale at Swansea. Richardson picked up a hamstring injury in the weekend defeat to Liverpool and limped out of the clash at Craven Cottage after just 15 minutes. He was replaced by Urby Emanuelson and the Dutchman could deputise again as the Whites make the long trip to Wales.
Hazard out of Europa League final
Chelsea manager Rafael Benitez has confirmed that midfielder Eden Hazard will miss Wednesday's UEFA Europa League final, but hope remains that John Terry will be fit to face Benfica at the Amsterdam Arena. The pair were injured in Saturday's Premier League win at Aston Villa. Hazard suffered a hamstring injury, while Terry is a doubt with an ankle complaint. Chelsea also have concern over midfielder Jon Mikel Obi, who has a hip problem, meaning Frank Lampard is included and should take over the captains role if Terry is ruled out.
Chelsea duo to undergo scans
John Terry looks like being unavailable for the Europa League final after suffering an ankle injury during Chelsea's 2-1 win at Aston Villa. Eden Hazard could also be a doubt for the clash with Benfica in Amsterdam after picking up a hamstring strain during the same game. Terry, who was out for more than two months with a knee problem earlier in the season, was stretchered off with 15 minutes remaining a Villa Park. Manager Rafael Benitez said: "John Terry twisted his ankle so we are waiting for a scan. We don't know how serious it could be. Hazard also felt something in his hamstring and again we are waiting for a scan. It's a pity before the final but at least we won."
Sissoko and Ameobi ruled out
Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has confirmed Moussa Sissoko and Shola Ameobi will play no part in the final two matches of the season due to injury. Sissoko missed the 0-0 draw at West Ham with a knee complaint while Ameobi limped away from Upton Park after being hurt in the closing stages. However, midfielder Sylvain Marveaux and defender Davide Santon are back in training after recovering from hamstring problems.
Dembele fit for Stoke
Midfielder Mousa Dembele is fit for Tottenham's game against Stoke on Sunday after recovering from a hamstring injury. Aaron Lennon (hamstring) came off against Chelsea in midweek but is fit to play, according to manager Andre Villas-Boas. Midfielder Sandro (knee) and defensive duo Younes Kaboul (thigh) and William Gallas (calf) are unavailable.
Gerrard to have shoulder surgery
Captain Steven Gerrard and defender Daniel Agger will miss Liverpool's final two matches of the season. Gerrard is scheduled to have an operation on a shoulder problem this weekend while the Denmark centre-back will undergo a series of injections in his back as part of a long-planned rehabilitation programme.
Craig Gardner suspended
Craig Gardner will miss Sunderland's final home game of the season against Saints on Sunday through suspension. The midfielder will not play again this term after being sent off for a challenge on Charlie Adam during Monday night's with Stoke.
He joins the suspended Stephane Sessegnon and injured strikers Steven Fletcher (ankle) and Connor Wickham (calf), as well as midfielder Lee Cattermole (knee), on the sidelines, while on-loan full-back Danny Rose will play his final game for the club before returning to Tottenham, who host the Black Cats on the final day of the season.
Sissoko doubful for Newcastle
Newcastle United are concerned that midfielder Moussa Sissoko will miss the club's final two games of the season. The France international missed last weekend's 0-0 draw at West Ham United with a knee injury. Sissoko is now considered a major doubt for the club's trip to Queens Park Rangers at the weekend and the home visit of Arsenal on the final day of the season.
Agger to sit out final two games
Daniel Agger will join Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard in missing the final two matches of the season. The 28-year-old defender will sit out the games against Fulham and Queens Park Rangers to undertake a series of injections to enhance the stability of his back. The Danish centre-back has enjoyed his best season at Anfield, starting 35 of Liverpool's 36 leagues matches.
Gerrard to have shoulder surgery
Steven Gerrard will undergo surgery on his left shoulder this week, ruling him out of Liverpool's final two Premier League games of the season, against Fulham and Queens Park Rangers. The operation also means the Liverpool captain will miss England's friendlies against the Republic of Ireland and Brazil on 29 May and 2 June respectively. Gerrard has started all 36 of his team's Premiersip games this campaign. The midfielder, 32, is expected to be fit for pre-season.
