Heurelho Gomes is the main doubt ahead of our season's finale at Burnley on Sunday.

The goalkeeper shrugged off a thigh problem in time to play a key role in our Champions League-clinching win against City on Wednesday night.

Gomes made two fine saves with the scoreline goalless in the first half but was clearly struggling again after the 1-0 win at Eastlands.

"He has a thigh strain but if he's okay, he'll play," reported boss Harry Redknapp this morning (Friday, May 7). "We'll have to wait and see."

The manager admitted it looks unlikely that Ledley King will play a third game in a week at Turf Moor on Sunday.

Ledley was outstanding in the wins against Bolton and City. "It's been fantastic to get two games out of him this week, but I don't know if he'll be fit for Sunday," added Harry.

Vedran Corluka (ankle) remains out alongside longer-term injuries Niko Kranjcar (ankle), Carlo Cudicini (pelvis, wrist) and Jonathan Woodgate (groin).
