Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby will not be risked for tomorrow's Barclays Premier League clash with Aston Villa.

Diaby has recovered from a hamstring injury, but boss Arsene Wenger will not name him in his squad until next week.

Wenger will use an unchanged squad against Villa from the group which won at Everton, with Per Mertesacker (ankle) and midfielder Jack Wilshere (ankle) still sidelined.

Aston Villa winger Charles N'Zogbia is battling to overcome a tweaked knee ligament in time to face Arsenal.

Alex McLeish's £9million summer signing from Wigan suffered the setback during training yesterday and his fitness will be assessed during the next 24 hours.

Striker Andreas Weimann is pushing for a start after scoring the winner against Fulham a fortnight ago. If N'Zogbia is ruled out, Weimann could play upfront with Gabriel Agbonlahor reverting to the wide role he has been employed in before this season.

Striker Darren Bent (ankle), defender Richard Dunne (shoulder) and midfielder Fabian Delph (ankle) remain long-term absentees while utility player Ciaran Clark is still recovering from a knee problem.

Arsenal squad: Szczesny, Sagna, Vermaelen, Koscielny, Gibbs, Walcott, Song, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Gervinho, Rosicky, Ramsey, Arteta, Van Persie, Fabianski, Djourou, Benayoun, Chamakh, Santos, Miquel.

Aston VIlla squad: Given, Guzan, Hutton, Lichaj, Collins, Cuellar, Warnock, Baker, Bannan, Petrov, Ireland, Albrighton, Agbonlahor, Heskey, N'Zogbia, Herd, Weimann, Marshall, Johnson, Gardner, Stevens, Delfouneso.


Bolton return to action against Blackburn at the Reebok Stadium a week after Fabrice Muamba's harrowing collapse at White Hart Lane.

Muamba remains in intensive care after suffering a cardiac arrest, but his family have given the green light for the game to go ahead as Owen Coyle's men looked to haul themselves out of the Barclays Premier League bottom three.

Coyle has told any player who does not feel up to taking part they should step aside, but it does not appear he has had any takers.

Defender Gael Givet is Blackburn's only doubt ahead of their trip to local rivals Bolton.

Givet aggravated a slight hamstring problem while warming up during Rovers' victory over Sunderland on Tuesday and is touch and go to make the squad.

Boss Steve Kean has named the same side for the previous two matches against Sunderland and Wolves, both of which resulted in 2-0 wins, and could well stick with that line-up again tomorrow.

Bolton squad: Bogdan, Jaaskelainen, Steinsson, Wheater, Boyata, Knight, Ream, Ricketts, Reo-Coker, Mark Davies, Pratley, Klasnic, Miyaichi, Ngog, Petrov, Eagles, Tuncay, Kevin Davies, Sordell

Blackburn squad: Robinson, Orr, Dann, Givet, Hanley, Lowe, Martin Olsson, Pedersen, Petrovic, Nzonzi, Hoilett, Dunn, Yakubu, Formica, Modeste, Goodwillie, Marcus Olsson, Rochina, Vukcevic, Henley, Bunn.


Defender Martin Kelly should be fit for the visit of Wigan despite having come off injured in Liverpool's last two matches.

The club are awaiting a full assessment of Charlie Adam's knee problem, sustained in Wednesday's defeat at QPR, but the midfielder could be doubtful.

Right-back Glen Johnson and forward Craig Bellamy are still missing with niggles while centre-half Daniel Agger (rib) is not yet ready.

Wigan forward Hugo Rodallega remains an injury doubt.

Rodallega missed last weekend's 1-1 draw with West Brom due to a knee problem and Latics boss Roberto Martinez says the trip to Anfield may come too soon for the Colombia international to make his return to action.

Midfielder David Jones and goalkeeper Mike Pollitt are not yet available for selection but are nearing the completion of their recoveries from a knee and shoulder complaint respectively.

Liverpool squad: Reina, Kelly, Carragher, Skrtel, Enrique, Spearing, Gerrard, Henderson, Downing, Carroll, Suarez, Doni, Flanagan, Aurelio, Coates, Shelvey, Rodriguez, Kuyt.

Wigan squad: Al Habsi, Figueroa, Watson, Boyce, Alcaraz, Diame, Caldwell, Moses, Gomez, McCarthy, Di Santo, Stam, McArthur, Lopez, Thomas, Sammon, Maloney, Crusat, Gohouri, McManaman, Beausejour, Kirkland.


Norwich midfielder Anthony Pilkington has recovered from the knock suffered at Newcastle last weekend and is available for the visit of bottom club Wolves to Carrow Road.

Marc Tierney and Daniel Ayala are back in training, but not yet ready, while James Vaughan is still missing with knee trouble.

Goalkeeper Declan Rudd, meanwhile, has resumed light training.

Wolves will be without suspended defender Ronald Zubar after his red card against Manchester United last weekend.

It could mean a recall in a reshuffled back four for skipper Roger Johnson who has been axed for the past four matches since caretaker boss Terry Connor took charge.

But Connor's biggest headache is in central midfield where David Davis (broken rib) has joined Karl Henry (hamstring) and Jamie O'Hara (groin) on the injury list.

The only positive team news for Connor is the return to training of midfielder Nenad Milijas after his calf problem.

Norwich squad: Ruddy, Naughton, Ward, Whitbread, Drury, Hoolahan, Elliott, Bennett, Pilkington, Martin, Howson, Holt, Fox, Surman, Morison, Steer, Johnson, Crofts, Jackson.

Wolves squad: Hennessey, De Vries, Foley, Stearman, Doherty, Johnson, Bassong, Berra, Ward, Elokobi, Kightly, Hammill, Hunt, Milijas, Edwards, Forde, Jarvis, Doyle, Ebanks-Blake, Fletcher, Jonsson.


Sunderland striker Stephane Sessegnon returns to the squad for his side's clash with QPR after suspension.

The Benin international is available after completing the three-match ban he incurred for his sending-off in the derby draw at Newcastle, but midfielder Lee Cattermole still has one game left to serve.

Central defender John O'Shea will undergo a late fitness check on his hamstring injury, but Kieran Richardson (calf) is still out, as are long-term absentees Wes Brown (knee) and Titus Bramble (Achilles/calf).

Armand Traore will miss QPR's trip to Sunderland. The Senegal international was brought off at half-time of Wednesday's 3-2 victory against Liverpool and is out for the next couple of weeks with a grade one hamstring injury.

Clint Hill will travel with the squad to the Stadium of Light but will have a back injury assessed, while long-term absentees DJ Campbell and Heidar Helguson are making good progress.

Sunderland squad: Mignolet, Gordon, Bardsley, Bridge, O'Shea, Turner, Kilgallon, Kyrgiakos, Lynch, Gardner, Larsson, Elmohamady, McClean, Vaughan, Meyler, Colback, Sessegnon, Bendtner, Wickham, Ji, Campbell.

QPR squad: Kenny, Cerny, Murphy, Young, Gabbidon, Onuoha, Ferdinand, Taiwo, Hall, Hill, Derry, Diakite, Barton, Buzsaky, Taarabt, Smith, Mackie, Wright-Phillips, Hulse, Bothroyd, Zamora, Cisse.


Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers is set to restore Ashley Williams to his starting XI for Saturday's meeting with Everton.

The defender missed last weekend's impressive win at Fulham due to illness, but is likely to take his place back from club captain Garry Monk against the Toffees.

Wayne Routledge will continue on the right wing as Nathan Dyer serves the final game of his three-match ban after his red card in the win at Wigan.

Everton could have Darron Gibson back for the trip to the Liberty Stadium.

The Republic of Ireland international has been out of action for four games due to a knee problem but Toffees manager David Moyes says Gibson's fitness is improving and has indicated he could feature against the Swans.

Fellow midfielder Jack Rodwell (hamstring) and wide man Seamus Coleman (thigh) remain sidelined.

Swansea squad: Vorm, Williams, Taylor, Caulker, Tate, Britton, Graham, Sinclair, Routledge, Monk, McEachran, Lita, Moore, Bessone, Rangel, Situ, Allen, Tremmel, Gower, Richards, Sigurdsson, Obeng.

Everton squad: Howard, Mucha, Neville, Hibbert, Distin, Jagielka, Heitinga, Baines, Cahill, Drenthe, Fellaini, Pienaar, Osman, Barkley, Gueye, Jelavic, Stracqualursi, Anichebe, Vellios, Gibson, McFadden.

Stoke winger Matthew Etherington (ankle) is fit to return for his side's clash against Manchester City after missing the midweek draw against Tottenham.

Midfielder Salif Diao (hamstring) is likely to miss out but defender Jonathan Woodgate, who has not played for a month, could come into contention for a place on the bench.

Striker Ricardo Fuller misses out as he completes a three-match suspension.

Manchester City hope to have captain Vincent Kompany back for the trip to Stoke.

The Belgium defender has an outside chance of returning after missing three games with a calf injury but centre-back partner Joleon Lescott (hip) is ruled out.

Striker Carlos Tevez is again expected to be on the bench after making his first appearance for six months in the midweek win over Chelsea.

Stoke squad: Begovic, Sorensen, Huth, Upson, Shotton, Shawcross, Wilkinson, Wilson, Woodgate, Whelan, Whitehead, Etherington, Pennant, Delap, Palacios, Jones, Jerome, Crouch, Walters.

Manchester City squad: Hart, Pantilimon, Richards, Zabaleta, Kompany, Savic, K Toure, Clichy, Kolarov, Johnson, Milner, De Jong, Y Toure, Barry, Pizarro, Nasri, Silva, Aguero, Balotelli, Dzeko, Tevez.

West Brom centre-back Jonas Olsson will return after a one-match suspension for the home clash with Newcastle on Sunday.

Olsson's probable recall alongside Gareth McAuley means Liam Ridgewell is likely to revert from central defence to left-back in place of Nicky Shorey.

Albion are hopeful striker Peter Odemwingie will be fit after missing the 1-1 draw at Wigan last weekend with a hamstring injury. Midfielder Zoltan Gera (knee) and right-back Steven Reid (foot) remain long-term absentees.

Newcastle midfielder Cheick Tiote is rated at 50-50 to return from injury at West Brom.

The Ivory Coast international missed last weekend's 1-0 win over Norwich with a hamstring problem and remains a doubt, although full-back Danny Simpson has a chance of returning from his adductor strain.

Utility man Ryan Taylor (calf) is still out, as are long-term casualties Peter Lovenkrands (thigh), Leon Best and Sammy Ameobi (both knee), Steven Taylor (Achilles) and Sylvain Marveaux (groin).

West Brom squad: Foster, Daniels, Jones, Olsson, McAuley, Tamas, Dawson, Ridgewell, Shorey, Mulumbu, Brunt, Scharner, Andrews, Morrison, Dorrans, Thomas, Tchoyi, Cox, Fortune, Long, Odemwingie.

Newcastle squad: Krul, Elliot, Harper, Simpson, Santon, Ferguson, Perch, Coloccini, Williamson, Tiote, Cabaye, Obertan, Ben Arfa, Gutierrez, Abeid, Gosling, Ba, Cisse, Shola Ameobi.

Alex Ferguson will be picking from strength when Manchester United face Fulham at Old Trafford on Monday.

Nani (ankle), Anders Lindegaard (ankle) and Michael Owen (thigh) are the only absentees, along with long-term casualties Nemanja Vidic and Darren Fletcher.

Chris Smalling, Tom Cleverley, Fabio, Paul Pogba and Phil Jones all came through a reserve outing on Thursday unscathed.

Fulham have no new major concerns heading into Monday's trip to Manchester United.

The Cottagers came through last week's defeat to Swansea unscathed, although they will be without third-choice goalkeeper Neil Etheridge for at least the next couple of weeks with a wrist problem.

Zdenek Grygera (knee), Steve Sidwell (hernia) and Orlando Sa (hamstring) are expected to be the only notable absentees.

Man United squad: De Gea, Amos, Rafael, Jones, Smalling, Ferdinand, Evans, Fabio, Evra, Valencia, Park, Scholes, Cleverley, Carrick, Pogba, Giggs, Young, Rooney, Welbeck, Hernandez, Berbatov.

Fulham squad: Schwarzer, Stockdale, Kelly, Riise, Hangeland, Senderos, Hughes, Baird, Murphy, Etuhu, Diarra, Gecov, Kasami, Frei, Dempsey, Ruiz, Davies, Duff, Dembele, Johnson, Pogrebnyak.
