  • But he will not be in a canoe today after having tested positive for Covid himself.
  • The Premier League clash will take place at 5.30 p.m.
  • The shock will be live exclusively on talkSPORT Sunday evening with coverage starting at 5pm.
  • Comments will come from Nigel Adderley and former England winger Trevor Sinclair.
