Doubtful: None

Unai Emery quotes: "Zaniolo broke his metatarsal and it is bad news. He was a doubt, but he did the effort to play on Monday because he had pain in his back after the match we played against Lille.

"He did the effort because we tried to use every players. He played 10 minutes and he broke his metatarsal and he will be out of the Euros. It is very sad for him. At the beginning of the season it will be difficult for him.

"Mings, Buendia, Kamara, Ramsey, Tielemans, Cash and Morgan are not available. We will play there being competitive."


BOURNEMOUTH

Gameweek 38 opponents: Chelsea (A)

Out: Ryan Fredericks (calf), Luis Sinisterra (thigh)

Doubtful: Romain Faivre (ankle), Chris Mepham (illness)

Andoni Iraola quotes: "It's difficult to say about injuries as we are two days away from the game, but I don't think a lot will change. I can probably try with Romain; he was out with just the ankle, and we will try to get him available.

"I don't know if [Mepham will] return, but we're finishing the season in a better place injury-wise.

"It has been difficult for Milos [Kerkez], he's very energetic so three weeks [out suspended] has been a lot for him! He was playing really well before the red card."

"He has a bone bruise, and he will be out for several weeks. He should be back for pre-season, but he is out for the last game."

"I'm always pleased if a player comes back from injury. It's good, but [Lerma] was out for four weeks now, and this was the first week of training, so he has to get back into the rhythm, but it's good to have him back."

Rob Edwards quotes: "Burkey and Ross will both be out, unfortunately. Burkey's Achilles is too sore; we'll take him out of it now. He's been playing through some pain, and Ross will be out for a number of weeks, three or four weeks, so he'll miss the final one, unfortunately.

"We'll pick a team best suited to win the game. We want to end the season on a high, we want to reward the fans for their unbelievable support with a win and three points.

"We want to finish as a high and as many points as we can. We want to find any kind of motivation and try and go into the next season as high as possible.

"We'll try and win 12-0 and see what happens. But the bottom line is, we want to give a good account of ourselves and reward the fans for the support they've given us over the past 37 games."

Doubtful: Victor Lindelof (thigh), Raphael Varane (muscle), Mason Mount (unspecified)

Erik ten Hag quotes: "I can't say in this moment [if anyone will return on Sunday] but we are working to bring players back.

"We have seen yesterday Licha Martinez [is back], he had a good session now as well. There were also others on the pitch like Rapha Varane, Victor Lindelof, they returned on the pitch. We have to see how far [off a return] they are on Sunday.

"Tomorrow we have off, Saturday we have training, and then we will see what we have. For England, I can't say, it's not up to me. But for the cup final, we're working on [it]. "I think Harry Maguire, I think it's a fair chance that he will be available. We plan [for] him.

"Luke is more complicated. In this moment, let's say it's a less chance that he will make it. But there is still a very small, reduced chance. He had a setback, now we have to find out how far [from a return] he is."

Gameweek 38 opponents: Burnley (A)

Out: Nicolas Dominguez (hernia), Neco Williams (hamstring)

Doubtful: None

Nuno Espirito Santo quotes: "Unfortunately [Williams] is not going to be available. It is disappointing.

"Also Nicolas Dominguez, we have taken the chance to solve some issues he has been carrying in this final part of the season. He went to surgery and will not be available. Some others are out, but we will keep it (quiet) for now.

"He was in a lot of pain and not able to produce force. He has been struggling a lot for the past two months. We have been trying to manage him as well as possible, but there was no other solution and he had to have surgery.

"We anticipate (he will be OK) in one week time, so he can hopefully start the next season in a better situation. Now I think it is important for him to take care of himself and have a rest."

"A few sore bodies, but nothing that I think will make any changes in terms of the personnel that played the other night. More than likely, it will be a similar squad."


WEST HAM UNITED

Gameweek 38 opponents: Liverpool (A)

Out: Craig Dawson (groin), Leon Chiwone (ankle)

Doubtful: Pedro Neto (hamstring), Pablo Sarabia (muscle)

Gary O'Neil quotes: "Pedro Neto will be in the squad. He's trained well and felt good this week, so he'll be travelling with us. Slight doubt around Pablo Sarabia, who has a minor injury that may rule him out. [Jean-Ricner] Bellegarde's feeling OK and doing well. [Craig] Dawson's out.

"I think that will be it, everybody else has managed to keep themselves fit this week and we're in a decent spot. We had some illness earlier in the week, but they're all back. Much better place for us.

"It's a tough test, so we'll need everyone available to us. Anfield's a tough place to go at the best of times, so the atmosphere and emotion around Sunday will be extremely tough. We're going to need everybody put in one hell of a performance to give us a chance."
