Latest Premiership Team News as Andy Carroll could start for West Ham against Arsenal

There is a busy weekend of Premier League action this weekend and as ever, the latest team news is being released all the time.

For Premier League Champions Manchester City, Javier Garcia is likely to miss out on their home clash with Sunderland due to a hamstring injury. For the Black Cats, Lee Cattermole is the main absentee due to suspension.

Chelsea are hoping to welcome back Frank Lampard to their starting line-up at home to Norwich, although Daniel Sturridge is a doubt. Norwich are hopeful that Sebastian Bassong will return to fitness after missing the 5-2 defeat to Liverpool.

Reading have no fresh injury concerns as they search for their first win of the season when they travel to Swansea. The Welsh side could be unchanged as Michael Laudrup keeps faith in the team that started the season so well.

The team news for West Brom is positive as Peter Odemwingie returns from suspension, while Queens Park Rangers head to the Hawthorns with plenty of defensive worries as Anton Ferdinand, Jose Bosingwa and Fabio all look set to miss out.

Wigan can be grateful to a successful appeal as Jordi Gomez is available to take on Everton, while the Toffees are likely to stick to a winning formula. They go into this weekend 2nd in the Premier League table.

The late kick-off on Saturday sees West Ham – who will assess the fitness of Andy Carroll prior to kick-off – take on an Arsenal side that is waiting to see how their players recover from the midweek trip to France in the Champions League.

For Sunday’s fixtures, the most significant team news at the moment is that Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie are likely to start together in the Premier League for the first time when the Red Devils travel to Newcastle.

It is then a case of assessing squads after Europe for Liverpool, Tottenham and Newcastle.
