West Bromwich Albion have broken their transfer record to sign Stephane Sessegnon on a three-year contract from Premier League rivals Sunderland.

Sessegnon had been linked to a move away from Sunderland all summer and with the club having purchased fourteen players this summer (including a variety of attacking midfielders and forwards) he was deemed surplus to requirements at the Stadium of Light. West Brom have got themselves a player who can be a match-winner on his day, but Steve Clarke will need him to settle in quickly, as they sit bottom of the table and remain the only Premier League side without a goal so far this season.

Craig Shakespeare has revealed that Wes Morgan is "touch and go" to be fit for Leicester City’s trip to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

Morgan's return would be a nice boost to Leicester City's backline, although Yohan Benalouane has proved a reliable stand-in alongside Robert Huth in central defense the last six Premier League matches. The City skipper missed the trip to Arsenal on Wednesday but trained this week and will be assessed on Saturday morning ahead of the clash at The Hawthorns. "He’ll be touch and go," Shakespeare told the media on Friday morning. "He has trained outside but not fully with the squad yet. I’m hoping, if he trains today, he’ll be in with a late shout tomorrow. I won’t put him at risk but, knowing his character, he’ll want to play when he’s 100 per cent." If Morgan is fit chances are he'll start, but an omission would see Benalouane continue in the starting XI.

Jon Walters has not trained since missing out against Swansea last weekend and is a doubt to participate against West Ham at the Britannia on Saturday.

Mark Hughes will likely try to continue to get Saido Berahino back to the form that saw him rise to stardom at West Brom. He also doesn't have a great deal of choice with Jon Walters, the only other reliable "small" forward option, looking like he won't make it back from a knee complaint in time for Saturday's match against West Ham. If Walters does make the squad the fact that he hasn't trained this week probably means that he won't do more than make a reserve appearance.

Jack Butland returned last weekend against Swansea and looks to be the starter for the remainder of the season as he returns from his long-term ankle injury.

It wasn't the greatest of returns as the Potters dropped the decision to struggling Swansea City but, in the long run, Mark Hughes will be happy to have his first choice goalkeeper back to full health. With safety assured this season, it is nice for Hughes to have the luxury of giving Butland a run of matches heading into the summer. Butland will be the starter heading in to next season with Lee Grant an excellent option off the bench.

Matt Phillips had barely returned from his last bout with hamstring issues when he went down on Tuesday with a recurrence that will keep him out for Week 35 and likely Week 36 as well.

It has been a frustrating second half of the season for Phillips due to nagging hamstring issues. What was initially ruled a minor hamstring issue in early March saw Phillips miss over a month of action. After a couple weeks back in the squad Phillips is right back where he was spending time with the trainers trying to get healthy again. James Morrison is Phillips' likely replacement with James McClean also a possibility if Tony Pulis is looking for more width and speed than Morrison brings.

Hal Robson-Kanu, a starter recently due to Salomon Rondon's poor form, will miss Week 34 after injuring his hamstring early this week in training.

It was a week for hamstring injuries in the Midlands as West Brom lost both Matt Phillips and Hal Robson-Kanu in training on Tuesday, both to hamstring issues. While Robson-Kanu hasn't been prolific since coming in on a free transfer over the summer, he has been starting recently. Salomon Rondon, whose own poor form led to his benching, will return to the starting line-up for Robson-Kanu and will hope he can reclaim his place as the starter heading into the summer with strong work down the stretch.

Manchester City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo was taken off on a stretcher in Thursday's draw with Manchester United.

Bravo didn't have much to occupy him with Manchester United only recording one shot on goal, but the Chilean had to be replaced by Willy Caballero in the second half after sustaining a calf injury while defending a corner kick. Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said he expects Bravo to miss the next couple of matches as the Sky Blues fight for a Champions League spot: "I haven't spoken to the doctor but it looks like the calf. We will know more tomorrow. He has an injury and it looks like it could be a few games, but we will have to see."

Swansea City manager Paul Clement said he hopes to have veteran Wayne Roultedge back for the end of the season.

The winger underwent groin surgery to repair a hernia that has affected him over the past month of the season, causing him to miss the last three matches for the club. "Wayne could play again this season, he has had an operation on his hernia. He his resting and will be back shortly. It does not keep you out long and hopefully he is back training in 10 days." Clement also said that defender Angel Rangel is also pushing for a return before the end of the season as he recovers from a broken foot.

Swansea City is starting to come healthy again just in time for the final run-in in its desperate chase to avoid relegation.

The Swans currently sit two points behind Hull City in the final relegation place. Ahead of the weekend clash with Manchester United, manager Paul Clement confirmed that Martin Olsson, Jack Cork and Leroy Fer are all participating in training as of Friday: "Martin Olsson has made good progress and he should join training tomorrow. Leroy got a dead leg and it has kept him out of training but he is also back tomorrow. Jack Cork has had a full week. So they are all in contention, we have to make an assessment of the physical work they have put in as to whether they start or are on the bench. We are almost at full strength."

Marouane Fellaini was sent off in the 84th minute as Manchester United saw off an inspired Manchester City to draw 0-0 in an eventful Manchester derby.

Manchester City were the better club at the Etihad but Manchester United held firm, as Jose Mourinho's defensive game plan proved too much for the Citizen break. City twice hit the post in the first half, with Sergio Aguero hitting the right post from close-range before David de Gea touched an Aleksandar Kolarov strike against the left. While United came close to opening the scoring just before the break when Ander Herrera headed a Marcus Rashford free-kick wide, it was the closest the visitors would get to finding a goal. City dominated the second-half and seemed to be on the verge of a victory after Fellaini was sent off for a rash headbutt on Aguero. Gabriel Jesus then appeared to have headed home the winner injury-time, but a good eye by the linesman saw him rightfully signal that the striker was in an offside position. All things consider, United will be happy with a share of the points.

Substitute Gabriel Jesus had a late header correctly ruled offside as Manchester City and Manchester United fought out a goalless draw at the Etihad.

Manchester City lacked the killer touch on Thursday, dominating possession and the attacking chances throughout an eventful derby clash. Sergio Aguero, who piled up a season-high number of shots (8), came closest for City when he hit the post early on before Aleksandar Kolarov saw his strong effort denied by David De Gea. Pep Guardiola's side continued their offensive assault in the second-half with both Raheem Sterling and Aguero forcing De Gea again into action. The match tilted even further in the home side's favor when Marouane Fellaini was dismissed after headbutting Aguero, while Jesus had his close-range header disallowed for offside in stoppage time. The result means City remain fourth in the table, one point and place above United.

After a delay of several weeks, the FA have punished Joey Barton with an 18-month ban for his decade-long gambling offenses.

The FA initially charged Barton back in early March, but the disciplinary hearing was delayed for several weeks because a chief investigator on the case fell ill. This allowed Barton to make a few more appearances for Burnley but, with a 34-year-old banned from football for a year and a half, one has to speculate whether Barton may have kicked the last ball of his professional career, a career with no shortage of controversy. While his temperament led to trouble both on and off the pitch, he has been able to succeed at a high level as a midfield enforcer, most recently helping Burnley to the top flight last season. Whether or not this is the end of the line for Barton, it is hard to imagine him fading quietly into the sunset. For the handful of fantasy managers who had been using Barton in draft leagues, it is now safe to drop him.
