Pompey are travelling to White Hart Lane to face Spurs on Sunday for our latest Barclays Premiership as we look to recover from the set back against Bolton at Fratton Park on Monday, what about the others...
Bolton v Liverpool, 12:45
Quinton Fortune hopes to overcome his Achilles problem; however should he miss out Bolton will name the side that ended Pompey's unbeaten run on Monday.
Not happy to name an unchanged side Rafa Benitez will again tinker with his starting line-up with Sami Hyypia, John Arne Riise and Mohamed Sissoko set to be recalled. It's pushing on for 100 consecutive games in which the Spaniard has made at least one change from his previous starting eleven.
Charlton v Arsenal, 15:00
Charlton's injury crisis is easing with Jerome Thomas, Souleymane Diawara and Omar Pouso poised to return to training shortly, with former Spurs winger Andy Reid set to return to face Arsenal however.
William Gallas (hamstring) will require a late fitness test, with Johan Djourou (foot) also a doubt. Justin Hoyte stands by should he be needed.
Chelsea v Aston Villa, 15:00
Having played in the midweek Champions League game John Obi Mikel could make his first Premiership start for the Champions. Claude Makelele, rested in that game could return. Joe Cole (knee) however is still not fit enough for his comeback.
Martin O'Neill is set to name an unchanged squad as Villa look to maintain their unbeaten start to the season. Martin Laursen is pressing for a recall, which would be at the expense of Olof Mellberg or Liam Ridgewell.
Everton v Man City, 15:00
Tony Hibbert is suspended following his red card last weekend. Other defensive absentees are Gary Naysmith (knee), Alan Stubbs, also knee and Alessandro Pistone (Achilles).
Ousmane Dabo returns from his own suspension but Hatem Trabelsi (groin) is struggling to be fit. After impressing last time out Ishmael Miller could continue in midfield.
Sheff Utd v Middlesbrough, 17:15
Having missed the opening exchanges of the season through injury Steve Kabba could play after recovering from his hamstring injury. Danny Webber, also hamstring will miss out but goalkeeper Paddy Kenny is over his thigh injury.
Stewart Downing is over his groin injury as is skipper George Boateng his knee problem, so both should be able to return. Malcolm Christie however has yet another injury to contend with, his ankle problem will rule him out.
Blackburn v Wigan, 15:00
Robbie Savage was substituted during Blackburn's UEFA Cup win but should be fit. Former Pompey loanee Jason Roberts, formerly with Wigan could return to the squad after his groin injury?
Lee McCulloch (thigh strain) is back in the Wigan squad, but will probably only make the bench. Ryan Taylor and Steve McMillan remain long-term injury absentees fro Paul Jewell.
Man Utd v Newcastle, 15:00
Mikael Silvestre will be out for six weeks with the dreaded broken metatarsal injury! Ryan Giggs (hamstring) is still out so it's a case of as you were from midweek for Sir Alex Ferguson with his squad this time out.
Titus Bramble and Celestine Babayaro are suspended and Giuseppe Rossi is ineligible as he is on loan from United so he`ll miss out also. Newcastle could include former Pompey goalkeeper Pavel Srnicek who returned to St James' Park once again on a short-term deal to act as cover for Steve Harper whilst Shay Given is injured.
West Ham v Reading, 14:00
Tyrone Mears and Anton Ferdinand are injury doubts for Alan Pardew, but Bobby Zamora and Yossi Benayoun should return after sitting out the heavy UEFA Cup defeat.
Skipper Graeme Murty (hamstring) is a doubt, so Ulises de la Cruz stands by if needed. Dave Kitson's knee injury will keep him out for another month. Peter Mate (knee) is also out of the squad.
Watford v Fulham, 20:00
Watford look set to name the same starting eleven that picked up a point at Wigan last week, although Lloyd Doyley and Darius Henderson will hope to get back into the team.
Mark Pembridge, Luis Boa Morte, Jimmy Bullard, Ahmad Elrich, Simon Elliott and Philippe Christanval are all still out, but having played whilst not fully match fit last week Papa Bouba Diop and Carlos Bocanegra should be so this time out.
