Kurt Zouma suffered a knee injury, just before the EFL Cup win over Arsenal, and likely won’t feature in the Premier League home fixture against Nottingham Forest on Sunday. The French central defender was only able to train indoors this week, so it is almost certain that manager David Moyes won’t have him at his disposal this weekend.
Zouma is the only absence that Moyes will have to contend with when the Scotsman leads his side against the Tricky Trees.

When it comes to the visitors, it’s an entirely different story. Former Chelsea man Callum Hudson-Odoi (hamstring), ex-Liverpool forward Divock Origi (hip), Gonzalo Montiel (calf) and Chris Wood (thigh) are all sidelined for this one. However, Felipe (knee) could be in contention here.
Or he may be rested not risked, given how this is the final match before the next international break.
