Aly Cissokho only last 10 minutes in his Liverpool debut against Notts County in the League Cup.

Cissokho was replaced by Daniel Agger, and it remains to be seen how severe of an injury he suffered. Jose Enrique will all but surely line up against Manchester United this weekend.

Victor Wanyama scored his first goal for Southampton to give the Saints an impressive three points away from home.

The assist came from Graziano Pelle, the striker who has been in hot form for the past few matches. Southampton and Swansea were matched well in the first half but after Wilfried Bony was sent off in the 39th minute, Saints took more and more control of the match and eventually got the winner they were looking for. Some soccer analytics guys now have Southampton at anywhere from 20-40% chance of finishing in the top four and that speaks a lot about the quality this team has brought this season.

Mesut Ozil and Danny Welbeck each had a goal and an assist in Arsenal's 3-0 win over Aston Villa on Saturday.

Ozil scored the first goal of the game off a great through ball from Danny Welbeck in the 33rd minute. Less than two minutes later Ozil returned the favor, assisting on Welbeck's first goal for the Gunners since joining the team earlier this month. An own goal in the 36th minute sealed the deal as Arsenal allowed Villa just 37 percent possession and two shots on goal. The Gunners will face Tottenham at home next weekend and Villa will play on the road at Chelsea.

Vito Mannone and Tom Heaton stopped six shots apiece to help their side earn a clean sheet on Saturday.

Each team found the target six times and hit the woodwork, but after 90-plus and 31 total shots neither side could get the job done. Sunderland and Burnley have now combined for seven draws through its first 10 fixtures to start the season. The two bottom table teams continue to hover just above the relegation zone due to draws. Sunderland will look to get their first win of the season at home next weekend in a tough test vs Swansea and Burnley will look to do the same as they travel to West Brom.

West Ham stunned Liverpool by scoring twice inside the first seven minutes of the match and it would prove to be enough as they went on to win 3-1.

As is often the case, Sam Allardyce entered today's match needing a positive result and this win over the Reds will certainly go far in the hearts and minds of Hammers supporters. As he was in the draw this past Monday against Hull, Stewart Downing was instrumental once again in spearheading the attack, whipping in one cross after the next. He showed some set piece magic by teeing up Winston Reid for a header that put the Hammers ahead for good just two minutes into the contest. Downing was an assist machine going back to his days at Aston Villa and may have found that form once again this season, making him a viable fantasy prospect most weeks.

Liverpool found themselves down by two goals and were forced to change tactics due to a key defensive injury early in their match with West Ham and they could not recover, losing their third match in four, 3-1.

The Reds were given a swift uppercut early and just could not get it right today after Javi Manquillo was forced off due to injury. It proved to be a perfect example however of how even when the Reds are struggling, Raheem Sterling has the special kind of flair that can create and score goals in any given match. Like last season, Pool look to have issues in defense and the signing of Dejan Lovren has yet to pay dividends, meaning their attack once again has to be leaned on, but in this post-Suarez team, those 4 and 5 goal games may be harder to come by

Queens Park Rangers trailed twice but managed to respond with goals to stay level with Stoke City, the final equalizer scored by way of a superb free kick from Niko Kranjcar as the two sides played to a 2-2 draw.

Rangers looked their typical disorganized selves but managed to keep pace with the Potters thanks to some key set piece conversions. The first came when Steven Caulker headed home a Jordon Mutch corner, though it could be argued that Stoke were responsible for an own goal. The second came with just a few moments remaining as Kranjcar skillfully curled a free kick over the Stoke wall and into the top corner. Expect to see plenty of Kranjcar in Redknapp's XI for the near future, not only has he been on of the few bright spots for Rangers in the early going, but injuries in this game to Mutch and Joey Barton may leave Redknapp with few options in midfield.

A back injury that kept Newcastle's newest forward, Facundo Ferreyra, out of the Magpies loss to Southampton last weekend will continue to keep him sidelined this weekend against Hull City.

There hasn't been much detail of Ferreyra's injury over the past week, but there are no reports saying he has returned to fitness. He is not a fantasy option until he can establish a regular spot in the XI, and still would be hard to consider if Newcastle continue their sinking ship.

He certainly ins't the biggest name out there but it wasn't long ago that Mulumbu had a huge phantom point week for the Baggies.

Having recovered from his hamstring issue that kept him out for West Brom's Week 4 capitulation to Everton Youssouf Mulumbu is available again. "Available" doesn't exactly fill you with confidence that he'll be ready to go and a trip to White Hart Lane doesn't scream "pick me" either. If you are in an auction/draft format then you might be very happy to see the Baggies' midfielder enforcer returning to the line-up.

Matt Taylor will not be available for Burnley this weekend as they get set to host Sunderland due to an Achilles issue.

Sean Dyche has bigger worries up top after losing Danny Ings to injury in last weekend's draw with Crystal Palace, but Taylor was brought in over the summer to add some top flight experience to the promoted side. The Clarets luckily have a natural option to replace Taylor as deadline day signing George Boyd can step into the wide left midfield role.

Ron Vlaar is a major doubt for Aston Villa's match against Arsenal this weekend.

Vlaar is struggling with a calf injury and likely won't be available when his team faces Arsenal. That's a big blow for Villa as they are a significantly better side with Vlaar involved. When healthy, he provides a level of experience and skill that's among the most consistent in the Premier League. We recommend him for fantasy in plus matchups, but of course he is not to be considered this week due to the injury.

In what was an interesting move by Jose Mourinho, Didier Drogba started Chelsea's 1-1 against Shalke in the Champions League.

The good news here is that Diego Costa came off the bench and all facts point to him starting against Manchester City this weekend. It's clear Jose Mourinho wants to win both the Premier League and Champions League and Costa being fresh for Manchester City is a great way to help your team. Diego Costa has the toughest matchup possible but he still remains a lethal choice for fantasy owners. Must start every week.
