Rickie Lambert and Dani Osvaldo returned to scoring form in a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Dani Osvaldo scored from the edge of the box early in the second half and Rickie Lambert doubled the Saints' lead soon after from a 25 yard free kick. Southampton have created chances all season but struggled to score repeatedly but that changed today. This was a big win for them as they're now in fourth place with eleven points. The Saints' summer signings seem to be making the difference and they will be competing with the best teams this year.

Thibaut Courtois has kept 12 clean sheets in his first Premier League season.

Courtois was great in his first year at Chelsea, playing 32 matches and keeping 12 clean sheets in the process. He missed a few games through injury and due to Petr Cech pressuring him for playing time, but with Cech likely on his way out this summer, Courtois is looking at 38 matches next season. With Chelsea's defense bound to be in the top three again next season, Courtois will be a fantastic fantasy choice. He should be the first goalkeeper of the board.

Everton are interested in luring Jonny Evans away from Manchester United this summer, and they have a second player in mind should the Northern Irishman target fall through.

Rumor has it that should the Toffees fail to land Evans on a permanent deal, they will then target Tyler Blackett for a loan spell. Everton need to fill the void left by Sylvain Distin. John Stones will likely prefer the Evans plans to fall through if he remains with the club as Evans would surely be a bigger threat to his minutes than Blackett would.

Nigel Pearson wants Esteban Cambiasso to stay at Leicester next season.

Cambiasso was instrumental to Leicester staying up in the Premier League despite being 35 years of age. The Argentinian midfielder was the team's leader on the pitch and brought much needed experience to a squad not fully familiar with top flight football. He looked good towards the end of the season and seems to have another year left in the tank. If Cambiasso returns, he will be a risky late round pick next season due to a combination of age, lack of goal scoring, and lack of fitness at age 36.

Burnley striker Danny Ings will almost certainly be sold this summer and he has plenty of suitors, with Liverpool currently the favorites to land him.

With the Clarets having been relegated, it is only a matter of time before Ings exits Turf Moor. Liverpool will be shopping for a striker, especially if Mario Balotelli and Ricky Lambert are to leave this summer as expected. It is believed Burnley will command a fee between £3-£5million mark. Ings was red hot in the first half of this past season but hit a wall before finally finishing strong.

Diego Costa became just the fourth Chelsea player to score 20 years in a Premier League campaign, according to Sky Sports and Opta.

Costa was fantastic for Chelsea this season, playing the striker role he knows so well. Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas were both in the top five in chances created and Costa certainly benefit from that. There is very little reason to think Costa will slow down next season and he'll be a first round draft-pick in many fantasy formats. He is 26 years old, Chelsea are only getting better, and the Hazard/Fabregas duo isn't going anywhere. Draft him with upmost confidence.

James Milner is a target for Liverpool this summer, as his veteran leadership would be a welcome replacement for the departing Steven Gerrard.

Milner represents as close to a Gerrard replacement as one could conjure. A central midfielder, England international veteran with set piece skills in his locker, an engine-like stamina and the ability to be influential in both attack and defense. Jordan Henderson took a massive step forward last season to show that he can accomplish all this criteria but it doesn't hurt to have competition and both could wind up regulars in the XI should Milner join the club.

Aston Villa only scored 31 goals this season, which was their lowest ever in a league season, according to SkySports and Opta.

Aston Villa missed their two main strikers - Christian Benteke and Libor Kozak, for big parts of the season and that surely has to do with their low goal total. Benteke caught fire towards the end and was fantastic, but rumor has it he could leave Villa this summer. Kozak, on the other hand, didn't play a single match this year and has suffered numerous set-backs while recovering from injury. If Benteke leaves, there will be little attacking fantasy value here next season, but Kozak could provide some value in very late rounds of fantasy drafts.

Typist's nightmare Yevhen Konoplyanka appears to be headed to Stoke City on a £50,000 per week deal after tonight's Europa League final.

The Ukranian left wing has been linked to Spurs and Liverpool over the past few transfer windows but it will apparently be Mark Hughes and Stoke City who land the Dnipro man for next season. Konoplyanka's arrival leaves a doubt over the possibility of Victor Moses returning to the Britannia on a permanent deal over the summer. Moses played predominantly on the left side of midfield in his time at Stoke City. It is possible that Moses could be shifted to the right or play a more central role if he were to return but it may be that Mark Hughes is looking for a less injury-prone option than Moses proved to be.

If Arsenal are unable to secure an established big name like Karim Benzema over the summer they may be considering Villarreal's Gerard Moreno as a cheaper alternative with big upside.

Bringing in another young player with potential isn't exactly what Arsenal supporters are hoping for this summer but the club has to have a contingency plan in the event that they are unable to sign a big name. Today's rumor mill has unearthed the name of Gerard Moreno who, at age 23, scored 16 goals in La Liga for Villarreal last season. At 5'10" he isn't exactly a like-for-like replacement for Olivier Giroud but he is more substantial than the likes of Theo Walcott or Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain but shorter than Danny Welbeck. It certainly feels like a pre-Ozil Wenger move but it might be the tabloids failing to re-adjust their sites after the signings of Ozil and Sanchez over the past two summers.

Arsenal have been most frequently linked with a move for Karim Benzema but today comes word that Manchester United may be entering the fray for his signature as well.

Manchester United have things that Real Madrid and Benzema surely want if they become serious about acquiring the forward. United have cash, more cash than Arsenal, to pay a larger transfer fee and/or more wages than are likely on offer at the Emirates. As a trump card, United can also tie a Benzema deal to a potential move in the opposite direction for David De Gea. Any move for Benzema will surely signal an end to Robin van Persie's time as a starter for the Red Devils.

Vicente Del Bosque has confirmed Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas will be included in the squad for the upcoming internationals against Costa Rica and Belarus despite having surgery on his broken nose.

Fabregas was caught by a Charlie Adam elbow back in April and the midfielder played for the remainder of the campaign wearing a protective face mask. The operation means Fabregas will not be a part of the post-season Chelsea squad which travels to Thailand and Australia this week. Diego Costa is expected to face Thailand All Stars and Sydney FC after overcoming a recent hamstring problem although Del Bosque omitted the striker from the Spanish squad "He has played two games, but not 90 minutes. He has just overcome some muscular problems and we didn’t think he was in the best condition for a key game against Belarus, so we have preferred players whose fitness isn’t in doubt."
