Arsenal are still fifth in the Injury League table while Liverpool have dropped to fourth.

Sunderland have climbed to third with Sebastian Larsson (knee), Vito Mannone (arm/elbow)
Fabio Borini (groin), Jan Kirchhoff (thigh), Adnan Januzaj (ankle), Steven Pienaar (thigh), Lee Cattermole (back), Victor Anichebe (groin) and Jordan Pickford (thigh) all out.

Although Arsenal still have Danny Welbeck (knee), Per Mertesacker (knee), Aaron Ramsey (hamstring), Olivier Giroud (toe) and Lucas (knee) out, the latter is expected to return after the international break with the other two not too far away either.

Meanwhile, Hull and West Ham both sit joint top on 59 points and Swansea move off the bottom above West Brom.

Liverpool also have players returning to action.

At least we’re not at the top!
