Romelu Lukaku could make his 200th Premier League appearance in this match - he now has 93 goals.

Tom Cleverley and Will Hughes will again look to provide the invention from central midfield, while Richarlison - who has five goals and three assists in the league this season - should be given a free role once again. Only 10 players have scored more goals than this in their opening 200 appearances in the competition, with Alan Shearer (145) leading the way.
