The midfielder was taken off as a precaution just before half-time after taking a whack in a challenge against Monaco in the Europa League on Thursday night.
Eric is ready but Clinton Njie and Mousa Dembele are ruled out as we return to Premier League action.
Clinton picked up a knee problem against Monaco while Mousa misses out with a foot injury. They join Ryan Mason (ankle) and Alex Pritchard (ankle) on the sidelines.
