All of those players could return on Friday however, though Yerry Mina, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Bernard and Fabian Delph are still sidelined.Jean-Philippe Gbamin’s awful luck on the injury front has continued, meanwhile, with the Ivorian midfielder set to miss the rest of the season with medial ligament damage suffered in training earlier this week.He had only just returned from 20 months out with an 11-minute cameo off the bench against Crystal Palace.
