SUNDAY 19 AUGUST
WIGAN ATHLETIC v CHELSEA, 1.30
New signing Ivan Ramis is Wigan's leading fitness doubt ahead of their season-opener with Chelsea on Sunday.
The Spanish centre-half, a £4million summer arrival from Real Mallorca, has a hamstring strain and heads two concerns for manager Roberto Martinez, with the other being James McCarthy (back).
Striker Victor Moses is in the squad despite interest from Chelsea, while Fraser Fyvie, Arouna Kone and Ryo Miyaichi are all in line for debuts.
Eden Hazard and Oscar may make their league bows for the visitors while Marko Marin has a hamstring injury.
Wigan squad: Al Habsi, Alcaraz, Caldwell, Crusat, Watson, Di Santo, Maloney, Moses, Pollitt, Gomez, McManaman, McArthur, McCarthy, Boyce, Sammon, Jones, Boselli, Fyvie, Ramis, Beausejour, Stam, Lopez, Golobart, Kiernan, Dicko, Miyaichi.
MANCHESTER CITY v SOUTHAMPTON, 4.00
Jack Cork is Southampton's only injury concern heading into tomorrow's tough Premier League opener at champions Manchester City.
The 23-year-old, who represented Great Britain at the Olympics, is out for the next few weeks after picking up an ankle knock in the pre-season friendly at Bristol City.
Danny Fox and Steven Davis returned safely from midweek international duty and should be included in the squad, although manager Nigel Adkins kept quiet on whether Tadanari Lee would be included after a foot injury.
Southampton squad: Davis, Gazzaniga, Richardson, Butterfield, Clyne, Fox, Shaw, Hooiveld, Fonte, Seaborne, Stephens, Chambers, Ward-Prowse, Do Prado, Cork, Chaplow, De Ridder, Lallana, Schneiderlin, Puncheon, Hammond, Davis, Lambert, Lee, Rodriguez, Sharp.
City manager Roberto Mancini will run the rule over Jack Rodwell in training before deciding the extent of the midfielder's potential iagainst Southampton at the Etihad Stadium.
Rodwell, troubled by hamstring problems in recent times, could make his City debut in the clash with the Saints, a week on from the confirmation of his move from Everton.
Mancini will also assess the fitness of goalkeeper Joe Hart, who could return after missing the 3-2 Community Shield victory over Chelsea due to a back complaint, while defender Micah Richards (ankle) and midfielder Gareth Barry (abdominal problem) are definitely ruled out.
Manchester City squad: Hart, Pantilimon, Zabaleta, Kompany, K Toure, Lescott, Savic, Clichy, Kolarov, Milner, De Jong, Johnson, Nasri, Y Toure, Silva, Dzeko, Aguero, Tevez, Balotelli, Rodwell
MONDAY 20 AUGUST
