Following their run to the Europa League quarter-finals, boss Nuno Espirito Santo gave his players three weeks off. That ended just before the international break so few of his regulars have been at the club's Compton Park training base over the past fortnight.

Essentially, Nuno has had four days with his full squad to prepare for what is likely to be a tough game. When he spoke of "issues and problems" the other day, he was probably understating.

One man Nuno won't have seen, at least on the field, is left-back Jonny, due to injury. Ruben Vinagre looks set to play instead - it would appear unlikely that new signing from Lyon, Marcal, will be pitched straight in given the lack of prep.
