TEAM SHEET: GUIDE TO TODAY'S ACTION IN THE PREMIERSHIP
Sunday 28 November 1999
WITH EMMANUEL PETIT almost certain to miss the visit of the Rams with a stretched cruciate ligament, the suspensions of Patrick Vieira and Freddie Ljungberg leave Arsene Wenger with a midfield headache. Stefan Malz may be handed a debut. The loss of Martin Keown (also suspended) will offer Georgi Kinkladze plenty of encouragement to run at the Gunners on his long-awaited return to the English game.
CHELSEA V BRADFORD CITY
DENNIS WISE and Frank Leboeuf both miss out due to indiscretions earlier this season which may mean recalls to the starting line-up for Roberto Di Matteo and Jes Hogh. Graeme Le Saux is still injured.
Bradford will still be without the ankle-injury victim Dean Saunders, who was hurt in the 1-1 draw against Coventry three weeks ago. Paul Jewell will probably stick to the starting 11 which lost 2-1 to Leeds a week ago.
LEEDS UNITED V SOUTHAMPTON
CAPTAIN LUCAS RADEBE is making an 11th-hour dash back from South Africa. Radebe played against Sweden in a friendly in Pretoria yesterday afternoon, but even if he makes it, David O'Leary will not decide whether he plays until an hour before kick-off. Saints' top scorer Marian Pahars faces a late fitness test on a calf strain. Skipper Jason Dodd came through a reserve game on Thursday - two weeks after knee surgery - and could start.
NEWCASTLE UNITED V TOTTENHAM
DAVID GINOLA is one Newcastle old boy who will not be welcome at St James' Park today. His comments to the Oxford Union that Robbie Fowler is better than Alan Shearer may backfire on the Frenchman. Warren Barton and Gary Speed are suspended for the home side. Tottenham's Stephen Carr could be out until the new year which means Justin Edinburgh will continue at left-back with Mauricio Taricco switching to the right-back berth.
