The manager told journalists at his weekly press conference that he wants to give new signing Ryan Nelsen a chance to play, but that Rafa Van der Vaart and William Gallas remain sidelined.

'I've got one or two I'd like to play. Ryan Nelsen has come in, the lads have said that he's trained great this week. I've always been a big fan of his, I think he's a great competitor," said Harry.

"It'll be a very strong team. Rafa's still injured, we'll have to see how he is next week (for the Arsenal match. William is a week or two away, Younes will train today and we'll see how he is, he's had problems with his knee. Unfortunately, Tom Huddlestone is out for the season and we wish him well."
