Tottenham have confirmed they have reached agreement with AS Roma for the transfer of Erik Lamela.

The deal for the highly-rated 21-year-old is estimated at £26million and the purchase should finally enable Gareth Bale's move to Real Madrid to go ahead for a world record fee of £86million. Lamela was outstanding in Serie A last season, scoring 15 goals from midfield, with pace and close control his main assets, and is capable of playing on either wing or as a number 10 behind the main striker. He is available to play in the North London derby this weekend.

Manchester City has received a major boost ahead of a massive FA Cup showdown with Gabriel Jesus in the traveling squad.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola confirmed that Gabriel Jesus has returned to training two weeks ahead of schedule from a broken foot sustained in February and will head to London with the team ahead of Sunday's FA Cup semifinal with Arsenal, giving him a chance of being involved in the 18-man squad: "(He's) much, much better, today he made part of training with us. He’s is coming back with his happiness, and we are so happy. We are going to travel, all the group, to Wembley, he will be part of that and after that we’ll see." However, the Sky Blues will be without John Stones in central defense due to a muscular injury.

Antonio Conte will have to adjust his defensive tactics ahead of Saturday's FA Cup semifinal with Gary Cahill ruled out due to illness.

Cahill has been a consistent piece of a stalwart defense that has become a bit leaky in recent weeks, among seeing the club's lead atop the table cut to four points by Saturday's opponent at Wembley. Against Spurs, Conte could revert to a four-man back-line or bring John Terry into a three-man central defense. Said the manager: "This period is not a lucky period for us. When we started training on Tuesday he arrived at the training ground with a bit of a fever, and our doctor preferred to bring him to the hospital and check his condition. It’s not a serious problem. Now Gary is getting better and is improving a lot. If you ask me for tomorrow my answer is it’s very difficult, yes."

Crystal Palace will face its toughest stretch of the season yet, but a crop of injury returnees are sure to help the cause.

The Eagles have three games in the six days, starting on Sunday against Liverpool and followed by Spurs in midweek. Those two clubs happen to be the only two sides that have recorded more points than Crystal Palace's 13 in the past month. And now it looks like the club will have James Tomkins and Loic Remy back from injury after seeing the return of James McArthur and Patrick van Aanholt last week. Said manager Sam Allardyce: "We have a few back out there training with us that haven’t been available in recent weeks which is ideal with a congested fixture period coming up...The full squad will be used over that period, obviously Mamadou cannot play on Sunday so that makes it important us having James Tomkins back available and Loic gives us another option on the front line."

Everton manager Ronald Koeman is resigned to losing James McCarthy for the rest of the season following an injury setback.

The midfielder has missed the last month with a hamstring injury that worsened while on international duty with the Republic of Ireland. And with only four weeks left in the season, Koeman said he doesn't believe there is enough time for McCarthy to regain full fitness: "James McCarthy is still separate from the group," said the Toffees boss. "I don’t know if he will be available until the end of the season. We have four weeks to go and I don’t know if we will reach a good level physically to play. We will wait because it's not the first time he is out. We need to wait to see at what time in the season he will be back available."

Arsenal will have to do without one of its most consistent performers this season in Shkodran Mustafi for the FA Cup semifinals this weekend.

The Gunners last hope of a trophy this season will be tested on Sunday against Manchester City at Wembley, where the club will also be without David Ospina and Lucas Perez due to injury. Meanwhile, Danny Welbeck is also a doubt for Arsenal as he will face a fitness test ahead of the weekend. The latest team news from last weekend is that everybody should be available. We have an uncertainty about Danny Welbeck, and Shkodran Mustafi is out. That’s it," Arsene Wenger said. "[Welbeck] is a doubt for the semi-final, he will have tests today and tomorrow to see if he will be available. Ospina is out and Lucas is still out. They are longer-term injuries. Ospina could be back in 10 days."

Danny Rose ha returned to training and word out of White Hart Lane is that the left-back could make the squad as soon as a week from Sunday, when Spurs take on rivals Arsenal in Week 35.

Spurs have been without England's first choice left-back since January but his absence has shown how strong of a squad they have, with Mauricio Pochettino tinkering with formation and Ben Davies offering very effective depth. That said, if Rose can make it back in time for the North London derby, even if only in a bench role, it would be a boost for the club's morale as they keep their sights focused on chasing the title.

Wayne Routledge and Jack Cork have been ruled out for Swansea City's match against Stoke City this weekend.

Cork, who missed out last weekend, is still nursing an ankle injury, but it sounds as though he could come back into contention as early as next week. Routledge's status is far more unclear. An unused substitute last weekend, he has since picked up a hernia injury. Hernias are the one of the more unpredictable injuries it terms of recovery time, so there is a chance that Routledge has already kicked his last ball this season. There is not much impact from a fantasy perspective with the news, except that Routledge's unavailability merely increases potential pitch time for the likes of Luciano Narsingh and Jordan Ayew, both whom are iffy fantasy prospects for the run-in.

Jurgen Klopp delivered some potentially bad news in his presser ahead of Liverpool's match against Crystal Palace this weekend, as Joel Matip, Ragnar Klavan and Lucas have all popped up on the injury report.

At the center-back positions this weekend, it looks like it will be Dejan Lovren partnering...someone. Matip is carrying a knock, minor enough for one to think, given the current state of the roster, the defender is prepared to play through. Klavan, on the other hand, has been dealing with a ligament issue on and off in recent weeks, so his status is quite unclear. Lucas, meanwhile, normally provides cover in central defense when Liverpool have an injury crisis, but he, too, has a knock. Whatever the partnership this weekend, the news should give a bump to Crystal Palace attacking players, who are being heavily invested in for their double gameweek.

Manchester United just about overcame Anderlecht 2-1 (3-2 on aggregate) in their Europa League quarter-final second leg clash at Old Trafford.

United opened the scoring early on through Henrikh Mkhitaryan. Pogba had sent Rashford loose on the left with an exquisite ball along the floor. The youngster tried to set Zlatan in on goal but that was blocked. He instantly recovered and gave the ball inside to his Armenian teammate who scored with a low shot. United failed to capitalise on their early first half momentum and lost Marcos Rojo to injury before Sofiane Hanni. United's midfield were absent as Anderlecht broke into the box and scored seconds after hitting the bar with a powerful strike beyond Romero. Shaw and Rashford were particularly dangerous as United, especially Ibra, wasted many chances before the Swede had to be stretchered off as the final whistle blew due to a seemingly nasty knee injury. Rashford was composed in extra time to give his side the lead and United were again wasteful and rode their luck to the end.

For once this season, Zlatan Ibrahimovic didn't grab the headlines as Manchester United dramatically won a game.

Ibrahimovic started United's Europa League quarter final against Anderlecht up top, and delivered a particularly impotent performance before suffering a potentially season ending injury in the dying seconds of normal time. Ibrahimovic rose to try and head a last ditch long-ball from Michael Carrick but landed awkwardly on his knee. Michael Owen termed the unnatural bending of his knee as a "hyper extension", which elicits fears of an ACL injury. Zlatan waved away calls for a stretcher and did manage to walk off the pitch, but uncertainty now hangs over whether or not he will appear again for the Red Devils this season.

Manchester United overcame Anderlecht 2-1 (3-2 on aggregate) to secure their place in the semi-finals of the Europa League but it came at a cost.

United lost Zlatan Ibrahimovic to a jarring looking knee-injury as the final whistle blew on Thursday night, but the encounter had already turned sour when their Argentinian centre-back Marcos Rojo had to be stretchered off during the first half. Rojo twisted his knee going into a tackle, which he tried to brush off after some treatment on the sidelines. However, he couldn't continue minutes later when he was involved in another challenge. He looked to be in pain as he was stretchered off and it will add further to Jose Mourinho's selection headache. He has just Eric Bailly, Daley Blind, and Timothy Fosu-Mensah left as option in the crucial central role as United's season reaches its climax on two fronts.
