Rodriguez came off the bench to score a last-minute goal in the 3-0 Europa League win over Sparta Prague on Thursday evening, and manager Claude Puel reported him as a fitness concern.

Puel made seven changes for the European tie, so the likes of Charlie Austin, who scored twice, and midfielder James Ward-Prowse could be back on the bench.

Club-record signing Sofiane Boufal remains out with a knee injury, as does right-back Jeremy Pied.

Provisional squad: Forster, Soares, Van Dijk, Fonte, Bertrand, Davis, Romeu, Clasie, Tadic, Redmond, Rodriguez, McCarthy, Austin, Targett, Yoshida, Hojbjerg, Ward-Prowse, Long, Martina.
