Nottingham Forest will be the most affected as they could lose a league-high seven players who, so far, have played a significant amount of minutes this season.

Manchester United will lose three players including first- choice goalkeeper Andre Onana, while Liverpool are set to lose starman Mohamed Salah.

Just two teams are likely to be unaffected, with defending champions Manchester City and Newcastle having no players involved at all as things stand.
