Following back-to-back victories, Sam Allardyce is expected to keep faith in what has been a settled starting XI for the home encounter against Southampton. Nikola Vlasic was handed a recall against Huddersfield Town last weekend and could again be preferred to Yannick Bolasie out wide. Oumar Niasse provides a possible alternative to Cenk Tosun up front, but is unlikely to displace the Turkish striker. Meanwhile, Ramiro Funes Mori and Tom Davies provide cover at centre-back and in central midfield respectively. Mason Holgate and Gylfi Sigurdsson remain sidelined, while Eliaquim Mangala, James McCarthy and Dominic Calvert-Lewin are long-term absentees.
Coleman – Keane – Jagielka – Baines
Gueye – Schneiderlin
Walcott – Rooney – Vlasic
