The shoulder injury sustained by Phillipe Coutinho in Liverpool's 2-2 draw with Swansea City Monday night will require surgery and will leave the midfielder out of action until late October according to Liverpool's official website.

This is a tough injury blow to a Reds side that has started well out of the gates, with the young Brazilian a significant part of the mix. His real life contributions on the pitch haven't translated to fantasy success as well as expected in the early going, but the creative midfielder played a key role in the Liverpool attack. Currently the most owned midfielder in the Yahoo game, managers need to find a replacement immediately.

Southampton defender Toby Alderweireld continued his hot fantasy form with a goal in the Saints' win over Crystal Palace.

Alderweireld makes it two consecutive weeks with double digit points despite not getting a clean sheet today. He is nailed on as a starter in Southampton and only costs £ 8.16M, making him an attractive options for fantasy managers in various formats. He can be used with confidence. Ryan Bertrand also scored today and is an even better fantasy option, but the price difference makes Bertrand hard to own unless you have him at a discount.

Leonardo Ulloa returned to Leicester's starting lineup with a goal.

Ulloa was impressive today and created danger in front of Tottenham's goal. He scored the Foxes' only goal of the day and did enough to warrant being started again in Leicester's next match. Ulloa has shown he can be streaky, but he just finished a long drought and a match away at Hull City is probably not the best matchup for a striker. Stay away for now but consider him if he earns another start and plays well at Hull.

Southampton got on the board early in the 17th minute and kept their foot on the gas, cruising to victory over Crystal Palace 3-1 on Boxing Day.

Sadio Mane got the Saints off to a great start, finishing a breakaway produced by a brilliant through ball from James Ward-Prowse. Mane and Ward-Prowse each assisted on the second and third goals. Palace finally got one back in the 86th minute off a set-piece header from Scott Dann, bringing some life to the home crowd, but that's about it. Saints were in control for most of the day. Palace play on the road vs QPR in two days and Southampton take on the league leaders (Chelsea) at home.

Diego Costa was back in top form today with a goal and an assist against West Ham United.

The Chelsea striker was a force from the start and was taken off with about ten minutes left to be presumably saved for Sunday's match against Southampton. Jose Mourinho stated earlier this week that no player will play in all three games over the holidays but with Costa being regularly pulled early, he may be risked for all matches. Check lineups before using him.

Sam Vokes was brought on as a substitute in the final stages in an effort to find a equalizer against Liverpool, but the Clarets were kept quiet in a 0-1 loss.

It is positive news on an otherwise dreary day for the Clarets, who could not take advantage of a struggling Liverpool attack and showed their own inability to finish today. Burnley actually were the better side in the first half and were at least equal to Liverpool over the course of 90 minutes, but it appears only an in-form Danny Ings can provide their attack any semblance of consistency. Hopefully, for their cause, Vokes can add another dimension that helps them out of the drop zone.

Adam Johnson got the opener for Sunderland, but Hull City clawed their way back to win 3-1 at the Stadium of light.

Hull conceded 29 seconds into the match on a sloppy giveaway at the back, but Gaston Ramirez equalized in the 33rd minute, James Chester got the winner in the 51st and Nikica Jelavic put the nail in the coffin in stoppage time to put Hull within striking distance of escaping relegation. Ramirez finished with a goal and an assist, giving manager Steve Bruce plenty to consider when Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore return from suspension. Hull are at home vs Leicester in a couple days while Sunderland travel to Aston Villa.

Bojan was at the center of a major turning point in the match between Stoke City and Everton when the referee awarded a penalty after he was brought down, and it would be Bojan himself that converted the penalty which led to the controversial 0-1 final.

Stoke played the Grinch today and really stole the presents away from Everton fans at Goodison Park. Their lone goal was awarded via a penalty chance that looked rather soft, especially when just moments earlier, Jonathan Walters appeared to have committed a much more egregious foul that many would say deserved a red card. Otherwise, the Toffees dominated the stat sheet in just about every way and should have come away with something. Instead, Stoke rise to a more comfortable mid-table position, one point ahead of Everton.

Brad Guzan earned his 100th appearance today when Aston Villa faced Swansea.

He becomes the 10th American to get 100 Premier League matches under his belt. Brad Friedel leads all Americans with 450. Guzan made a crucial error in the match when he failed to challenge Gylfi Sigurdsson's free-kick for the only goal of the match. Despite the error, Guzan remains Villa's number one option between the posts. He is also challenging Tim Howard for Team USA's starting goalkeeper spot for upcoming competitions.

Gylfi Sigurdsson scored a brilliant free-kick to give Swansea a 1-0 win over Aston Villa.

The goal came in the 13th minute after Jores Okore fouled Jefferson Montero on the edge of the box. It was the only goal of the game but it was a beautiful one. American goalkeeper Brad Guzan should probably have done better but Sigurdsson deserves credit for the curling strike. Villa pushed late to try and earn an equalizer but Lukasz Fabianski made two huge saves to keep them out. Swansea have been great in recent weeks and earned another win here in impressive fashion. They sit in seventh place and are keeping their European dreams alive.

Goodison Park is not a fun place to be right now following Everton's frustrating 0-1 loss to Stoke City.

The Toffees had been sputtering and this fixture looked to be ripe for a turnaround. Instead, one terrible scenario after another unfolded. Leighton Baines looked to be breaking away for a clear chance on goal when he was brought down from behind by Jonathan Walters but the referee would only issue a yellow card. Then just moments later, Bojan was brought down in what looked like a soft foul by James McCarthy and Stoke were awarded a penalty which Bojan converted. Then, just before halftime, Tim Howard came up limping and had to be replaced to begin the second frame. Meanwhile Everton were creating more than their share of chances, dominated possession, had more shots on targets, took more corners, but just could not for the life of them find the net. Roberto Martinez is a respected manager and Everton had big dreams entering this season having locked up Romelu Lukaku permanently, but something has gone wrong for the Toffees and their fans want things to change post haste.

There wasn't much to like for West Brom on Boxing Day but at least they have a goal from Ideye Brown to show for the visit of the Champions.

Things went downhill quickly for the Baggies who conceded goals in the 8th and 13th minutes against Manchester City. They conceded again in the 34th minute which effectively ended the match as a competitive fixture. Ideye Brown was introduced in the 67th minute for Silvestre Varela and scored 20 minutes after his introduction so at least there was something that Albion could salvage as good news from the day
