Phil Jones recovered from his injuries to start as a holding midfielder for Manchester United against Liverpool in the Capital One Cup.

Jones' recovery may come just in time for him to become a victim of Manchester United's better health and new acquisitions. With Marouane Fellaini likely claiming a spot with Michael Carrick as the midfield wheelhouse, Jonny Evans and Chris Smalling rejoining Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic in the center back rotation and Rafael Da Silva is back to claim his right back spot. The combination of all of those players means that Jones probably reverts to being a reserve and spot starter which probably takes him out of being fantasy-relevant for the time being.

The Chelsea defense was dealt a major blow with the news that Kurt Zouma will undergo surgery to repair an ACL injury sustained in a 1-1 draw with Manchester United.

The club announced the French defender will miss the next six months with the injury, ruling him out for the rest of the season, this summer's European championships and putting the start of next season in jeopardy as well. Zouma was taken off the pitch on a stretcher in the 59th minute on Sunday after landing awkwardly after jumping for a header, hyperextending his knee as he fell to the pitch instantly. Without Zouma, who has started 21 of the club's 25 league matches, Chelsea will surely turn to Gary Cahill, who made his first appearance in the last six Premier League matches after coming on for Zouma.

Arsenal, looking to capture some of the magic of Leicester City's team-building magic, have recruited away top Foxes scout Ben Wrigglesworth.

Arsenal won't be the only club looking to duplicate what clubs like Leicester City and West Ham have done in the transfer market in recent seasons with captures like Riyad Mahrez, Ngolo Kante, and Dimitri Payet but the Gunners are taking a proactive step in that direction. The hiring of Ben Wrigglesworth will be seen as a move to bring new blood, and new blood with a successful recent track record, into the scouting mix.

Dejan Lovren was substituted early in Liverpool's draw with Sunderland on Saturday with a leg cramp, putting some doubt in the center back's availability for the Reds FA Cup replay against West Ham United on Wednesday.

Lovren lasted only eleven minutes against the Black Cats and it was revealed today by Jurgen Klopp that the Croatian felt cramping in the same area two or three times before being removed, labeling the substitution as precautionary. He was replaced by Kolo Toure and is likely to have the veteran fill in for the FA Cup tie with the Hammers. It sounds though that Lovren will be fit enough for Week 26 against Aston Villa barring a setback in training.

James Tomkins is likely to miss a "few weeks" following a calf injury at Southampton on Saturday.

The Hammers defender has struggled due to a number of minor problems recently - most notably a head wound which required thirteen stitches. However, this latest setback – a suspected calf strain - is likely to keep the 26-year-old sidelined for the longest period yet. A scan on Monday will confirm the extent of the damage suffered during the defeat at St Mary's. In his absence, Joey O’Brien could fill in at right-back for the FA Cup replay against Liverpool while Sam Byram – who is ineligible on Tuesday – is a candidate in the league. Speaking ahead of the match, Slaven Bilic revealed Dimitri Payet should be okay after he escaped relatively unscathed following a rash Victor Wanyama scissor challenge which resulted in his sending-off. Andy Carroll will face his former employers following his recovery from a hamstring strain.

Steve McClaren is hoping Daryl Janmaat will be available to take his place in United’s patched up defence when the Magpies travel to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea in game week twenty-six.

Janmaat picked up a knock during the open exchanges of Saturdays' encounter with West Brom but the Dutch full-back managed to complete ninety minutes. Post-match the Newcastle head coach revealed: "He got a kick and a dead leg but he should be okay." United managed to secure a crucial three-points as Fabricio Coloccini (knee) played through the pain-barrier to partner Steven Taylor who was making his first start since August. Rolando Aarons was used as a make-shift left-back with Massadio Haidara, Vernon Anita, Jack Colback and Kevin Mbabu all missing through injury to help the Geordies to a rare win and clean-sheet.

David Silva looks set for another extended spell on the sidelines with the Spanish playmaker all but ruled out of this weekends’ crucial clash with Tottenham.

Silva was replaced after 77 minutes on Saturday as champions-elect City were humbled at the Etihad by a Leicester City side who continue to defy the odds. The defeat leaves the Citizens six-points off top-spot but more worrying is the loss of Silva who has struggled throughout the campaign due to muscular and ligament problems. "He is playing with a lot of pain in his ankle. He twisted it again today, so we will see during the week," said the Chilean coach. This latest addition to the treatment room leaves Pellegrini with seven outfield players currently sidelined. But more importantly it means City are without four creative midfielders' with Kevin de Bruyne, Samir Nasri and Jesus Navas already ruled out plus Wilfried Bony who is struggling to shake off an ankle injury.

Alan Pardew played down any fears of an injury recurrence for Yohan Cabaye after the Frenchman was replaced with twenty-minutes still remaining at the Liberty on Saturday.

Cabaye passed a late test having limped away from Selhurst Park on crutches last weekend, but the Eagles boss was quick to confirm the midfielder had not suffered another injury: "He's fine," Pardew said. "He was struggling a little bit with his fitness because he hadn't worked ahead of the game. He's had a sore ankle as we know and was touch and go but he was terrific." Palace ended a run of five consecutive Premier League defeats at Swansea, but the draw still leaves them without a win in eight, a run which has saw them slide alarmingly into the bottom half. However, following the arrival Emmanuel Adebayor, Palace hope that a new attacking impetus will be enough to help the Eagles soar back-up the league table.

Guus Hiddink refused to speculate on the nature of the injury suffered by Kurt Zouma during the clash with Man United at Stamford Bridge. But admitted: "It was very bad," adding that he "hoped" the player would not miss the remainder of the season.

Zouma rose unchallenged on the hour mark to make a strong headed clearance, but landed awkwardly, and momentum caused his knee to hyperextend (bend backwards). Medics were quickly called onto the field and Zouma was stretchered off in obvious distress. "I am not a doctor, let's see tomorrow," Hiddink said on the final whistle but gave a little more insight during the post-match press conference. "It's very bad when you land with a hyper-extended knee. Hopefully he won't be out for rest of season. Let's touch wood and hope there is good news. " His absence will mean Gary Cahill is expected to partner John Terry in the heart of the Chelsea defence.

Eden Hazard was only deemed worthy of being a second half substitute as Chelsea came back to draw with Manchester United while he was on the pitch.

Eden Hazard's return from a hamstring injury has been more protracted than one might expect for last season's Premier League Player of the Year. Despite being fit enough for a spot on the bench over Chelsea's past two matches, the Belgium international hasn't been tapped to start either by Guus Hiddink. Rather he has been cast in the role of second half change of pace by the Dutch interim manager. With Chelsea's play improving and Hazard contributing little during that period of improved play, it is reasonable to wonder if the arrangement will stand despite Hazard being fully fit.

Jesse Lingard's ascendancy may have been somewhat accidental this season but he has taken the opportunity and continues to produce results.

The Manchester United midfielder has now scored in consecutive matches and has been part of what has at least been a mini-revival of United's attacking play featuring Lingard and Martial playing wide, Juan Mata playing centrally behind Wayne Rooney. Rooney's revival has been well documented but it has been the speed and skill of Martial and Lingard and the creativity of Mata that have created opportunity for Rooney and put some sting in the Red Devil attack. Lingard won't keep scoring a goal a match but continue to look for contributions from him.

Jesse Lingard fired in an excellent shot falling away from the goal to give Manchester United the lead but it was David De Gea who came to the rescue to ensure that the Red Devils left Stamford Bridge with at least one point.

David De Gea couldn't keep Diego Costa out after the Brazilian/Spaniard was put in on goal beautifully in stoppage time. It was hardly the Spanish goalkeeper's fault but it was the only thing that could possibly be held against him in what was an excellent display. His most notable save was from a Branislav Ivanovic drive that looked bound for the top corner. He also did well to save from a second half Costa shot that was aimed for the near post top corner. United owe the one point they did pick up at Stamford Bridge to the continued excellence of their number one.
