Olivier Giroud was the subject of injury concerns after Arsenal's win over Sunderland but he started and played the full 90 against Marseille.

Olivier Giroud's name is no longer on the "injury risk" list as he started for Arsenal against Marseille on Wednesday and played the full match. Giroud didn't score against the French side but after four goals in four matches in the Premier League he has to be high on your list of potential starters in Week 5 against Stoke at the Emirates on Sunday. With Manchester United and Manchester City's forwards locked in a battle against each other Giroud is that much more attractive an option now that he's proven himself fit.

Norwich City have made room on their roster for new forward signings by loaning under-performing Ricky van Wolfswinkle to Real Betis for a season.

It hasn't gone well for van Wolfswinkle since his debut goal in the Premier League in the 2013-14 season. He was loaned out to St. Etienne last season and didn't fare much better there. He will now try his luck in Spain with Real Betis. You have to think that Alex Neil and company have pretty much given up on the player given their need for a forward.

Mesut Ozil failed to travel to Tyneside last weekend for the third time in his Arsenal career after picking up an injury in training.

Ozil is yet to play at St James’ Park in the PL having missed the Gunners previous visit – March 2015 – due to illness and the match before because of a shoulder complaint. On each occasion Ozil was only ruled out for a matter of days and this latest setback appears to be just that. Wenger confirmed the German had picked up a "minor" knee injury and should be back in training within a week. In his absence Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was afforded a rare start - on the right - [as Aaron Ramsey moved to a more central role] and it was the England internationals deflected shot which secured his sides’ eighth successive win against the Magpies.

Tottenham expect to know the full extent of the foot injury suffered by Mousa Dembele within 24 hours after the midfielder was taken off against Everton at White Hart Lane.

The exact nature of how the injury occurred still remains unclear although there did appear to be contact on his standing foot after the 28 year-old played a routine pass. On Sunday Dembele tweeted "Let’s hope the injury is not too bad" although his departure – on a stretcher – did not look good. Dembele has started all four PL games this season but his [potential] absence could hand former MK Dons player of the year Dele Alli his opportunity especially given that Erik Lamela is expected to leave within the window. French side Marseille are believed to have secured the services of the Argentine.

Real Madrid and Manchester United have reportedly agreed on a deal for goalkeeper David de Gea.

This one has been running in the rumor mill for over a month now and it seems it's finally coming to a close. The deal will reportedly send David de Gea to Real Madrid in exchange for £29m and Keylor Navas. Manchester United should be happy with the deal as it's close to the record paid for a player with just one year left on his deal. Sergio Romero seems set to be Manchester's goalkeeper for the rest of the season and he is a top-three fantasy choice at the position.

Southampton forward Emmanuel Mayuka leaves the club after disappointing three years.

Mayuka joined the Saints in 2012 but has failed to score a league goal in his time at the club. The striker is now headed to Metz on a three-year-deal and he can safely be dropped in all fantasy leagues.

Jack Grealish missed Aston Villa's week four match with an ankle injury.

Our own Galin Dragiev had recommended Grealish last week but the midfielder picked up an ankle injury in training on Friday and was forced to miss out. Scott Sinclair got the start in his place and ended up scoring a brace to go along with his hat-trick in midweek last week. It's uncertain who will start for Aston Villa in week five, but we are assuming Sinclair gets the nod after his two impressive performances last week.

Amid rumors of a potential move to Norwich City, Jon Walters has reportedly asked out at the Britannia.

The rumor mill indicated last week that Stoke City knocked back two bids from Norwich City for forward Jon Walters. One of last season's pleasant surprises, Walters hasn't seen a lot of action so far this season. He started the first two matches but was withdrawn after 58 minutes in the second and hasn't seen the pitch since. With depth improving at the Britannia, it seems sensible for Mark Hughes to cash in on what little value is out there for a journeyman forward who will turn 32-years-old in September. Walters' value to fantasy managers immediately increases if he does get a move to the Carrow Road where Cameron Jerome doesn't offer particularly stout competition for playing time.

Tim Sherwood has remained hopeful that Adama Traore and Jack Grealish will be available for week five.

Traore missed week four with an ankle injury that doesn't sound to be too serious and he has a good chance at recovering for week five, especially with the extended rest he'll be awarded due to the international break. Jack Grealish also suffered an ankle injury and he is also questionable for week five. There is a lot of time left until then, so check back in the days before the match to confirm their status.

West Brom have signed goalkeeper Anders Lindegaards on a two-year-old.

The Manchester United goalkeeper never had a chance at winning the Red Devils' starting goalkeeper job and he will join West Brom, where he'll battle with Boaz Myhill and Ben Foster for the starting job. Foster is currently out with an injury and Myhill hasn't impressed enough to be guaranteed the job, so Lindegaard certainly has a chance to start as soon as week five. Keep an eye on the situation before you add him in fantasy.

Bologna have signed Sunderland midfielder Emmanuele Giaccherini.

Giaccherini joins Bologna on a season-long loan after being out of favor at Sunderland. He had four goals and four assists in 1356 minutes last season and didn't do enough to warrant consistent fantasy consideration. At Bologna, he might get more consistent playing time, but his fantasy value will likely remain low in the Serie A as he isn't a constant goal threat.

Disappointing forward Brown Ideye has departed West Brom a year after he arrived having provided very little in-between.

Consider this a panic buy last season as the club struggled to replace Romelu Lukaku for the second straight summer. They over-spent on the Russian League refugee and everyone, except the Baggies' braintrust, thought it was a bad idea at the time and thought no better of it after he arrived. Ideye had a brief positive spell that coincided with the arrival of Tony Pulis but that was about all the highlights. He departs the Premier League for Greece likely netting the Baggies a significant loss in the process.
