Mohamed Elyounoussi is the only player at risk of missing out on Saturday's Premier League trip to Everton.

Speaking ahead of the game, Mark Hughes confirmed that the Norwegian international is unlikely to feature (hamstring) against the Toffees but delivered some positive news on fellow new signing Stuart Armstrong, who was forced off through injury during Sunday's opening day draw with Burnley.

"At the moment, apart from maybe Moi at the weekend, we’ve got everyone fit and available," he said. "Stuart Armstrong is okay after his knock.

"We have a 25-man squad and it’s there to last the whole season. We’ll lose players to injuries and suspensions at times but for the most part now everyone is ready to go.

"That’s a good thing on many levels but obviously you end up disappointing players who haven’t done anything wrong but would hope to be involved. It's a nice problem to have."
