Higuain signed on loan from Juventus until the end of the season, with further options, on Wednesday, but was ineligible for Thursday’s Carabao Cup semi-final success over Tottenham.

Changes are likely, while Ruben Loftus-Cheek could be available following a back problem, but Victor Moses has joined Fenerbahce and Alvaro Morata, also expected to leave, is not likely to be considered.

Sheffield Wednesday striker Fernando Forestieri is back in contention and could make his first appearance since early December.

Forestieri has been sidelined due to a hamstring issue, while interim boss Steve Agnew has no new injury problems.

Centre-half Michael Hector is ineligible to face his parent club so Jordan Thorniley is expected to step in, while Agnew must decide whether to retain Keiren Westwood in goal or recall Cameron Dawson.

Midfielder Sam Hutchinson completed the full 90 minutes in last week’s home win against Wigan and is expected to start against his former club.
