Jores Okore (cruciate ligament) and midfielder Charles N’Zogbia (Achilles) are long-term casualties.
Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon has recovered from a foot injury and is in contention. Left-back Danny Rose (toe) and midfielder Etienne Capoue (ankle) are out until next week, while defender Younes Kaboul is doubtful because of an adductor injury.
