goal­keeper Kasper Sch­me­ichel for Sun­day’s match against West Bromwich Al­bion after he broke his right hand dur­ing Wed­nes­day’s Cham­pi­ons League draw with FC Copen­hagen.

Lead­ers Manch­ester City host Mid­dles­brough on Satur­day

buoyed by a Cham­pi­ons League win over Barcelona.

Liver­pool, be­hind only City in third on goal dif­fer­ence, face Wat­ford, who are fly­ing high in sev­enth place. Wat­ford are reel­ing from the res­ig­na­tion of ex­ec­u­tive chair­man Raf­faele Riva amid in­ves­ti­ga­tions into the 2014 takeover by Ital­ian busi­ness­man Gino Pozzo, and Riva said he will “vig­or­ously” de­fend his in­tegrity.

Manch­ester United are be­hind Wat­ford in sev­enth and Mour­inho’s strug­gling side is away at Swansea on Sun­day after a lengthy trip to Tur­key for a Europa League game against Fener­bahce on Thurs­day. Swansea man­ager Bob Bradley is look­ing for his first win at his fourth at­tempt, hav­ing col­lected only one point since tak­ing charge of the south Wales club.

Swansea are three points ahead of win­less and last-place Sun­der­land, who are at Bournemouth to­mor­row.
