Also, David Luiz and Kieran Tierney are definitely out of the Friday game as they continue to recover from knee problems.

David Luiz is “making very good progress and is hoping to integrate back into light training with the squad next week” while Martin Odegaard is “back in light training and will be assessed ahead of the Everton match regarding his availability.”

Kieran Tierney remains a long-term absentee after damaging his knee ligaments.
