Tottenham defender Younes Kaboul picked up a muscle injury on Thursday against Anzhi Makhachkala in the Europa League and will be absent against West Ham.

This is a blow for the player, but he was unlikely to start as Andre Villas-Boas continues to ease Kaboul back in after his long term injury. What it does mean is Jan Vertonghen and Michael Dawson are certain to start against West Ham.

Tottenham were peppering the Swansea City net all afternoon, as Christian Eriksen led the way to a dominant 5-0 win.

Outside of a cut to the face of Kyle Walker in the early stages of the match, everything went right for Spurs today. Harry Kane opened the scoring from the spot after Dele Alli had been fouled on the edge of the area. Heung-min Son then smashed a scissor volley just before halftime with Eriksen supplying the assist. Kane got his brace four minutes into the second frame, smashing home a ball that looked teed up for Son. Eriksen would go on to score the final two goals, heading one home that deflected off of the keeper from an Alli shot, then scoring from a Moussa Sissoko pass. It has been a struggle for Spurs in recent weeks, but perhaps they can build off of this very convincing win.

Crystal Palace confounded all expectations and form to end their six match losing streak in the PL with a 3-0 win over Southampton at Selhurst Park.

Southampton's over-reliance on Charlie Austin up top was evident as they lacked cutting edge again. At the other end, uncharacteristic mistakes in defence cost them. After no shots in the first 20 mins, Benteke went close with a header from a Zaha cross before converting an early Christmas gift from Fraser Forster who missed a clearance due to a bobble. Almost instantly, the Eagles soared 2 ahead. This time it was the Saints defence who misstepped, leaving James Tomkins totally unmarked to poke in a Ledley cross from point-blank range. Southampton dominated possession in the second half and went closest through a Van Dijk header which cannnoned off the crossbar but Palace got their third from a corner which the Saint failed to deal with. Puncheon pulled back to Benteke who made no mistake for his brace. Palace were deserving winners, they ironed out many of their defensive kinks which were the cause of so much of their trouble this term.

Chelsea have now run off eight straight wins after coming from behind on Manchester City's ground to win, 1-3.

A very entertaining match from start to finish, despite the fact that only one shot on target was managed between both sides in the first half. The Blues fell behind just before the break though, when Gary Cahill turned a Jesus Navas cross into an own goal. The Blues went into another gear in the second half though, with Diego Costa being the leader of the attack. He leveled the match on the hour mark, collecting a clever over the top pass from Cesc Fabregas and finished in clinical fashion. Costa then fed a through-ball to Willian ten minutes later and Willian finished with a powerful shot. Eden Hazard wrapped up the scoring in the 90th minute, finding space after collecting a pass from Marcos Alonso. It's early days but Chelsea are certainly looking like potential champions right now.

Manchester City were ahead at halftime but were outplayed in the second frame, as Chlesea would score three times unanswered and the Citizens made matters worse with two players sent off in the final minute of the match.

There is plenty to dissect from both teams in this one, but Manchester City's 90 minutes of effort will be overshadowed by a terrible high tackle by Sergio Aguero on David Luiz in the game's dying moments. Aguero and the rest of the club were frustrated by some non-calls by the referee during the course of the match, particularly an event where Aguero appeared to have a chance a breaking through alone on goal but Luiz made contact that brought Aguero down. City also had a sitter missed by Kevin de Bruyne and a goal disallowed from a free kick because Fernandinho was offside. Fernandinho was also sent off following the Aguero tackle for his antics in the following fray resulting from the foul. Expect to see a run of starts for Kelechi Iheanacho coming.

Nemanja Matic, a steady presence in Antonio Conte's XI, was a surprise absence today, missing out with a minor thigh muscle injury.

It is not clear if Matic picked up the injury in training yesterday or sometime this morning, but the central midfielder misses his first league match of the season, in which he has started every one. It may come to some as a surprise that he is second in the league in assists, totaling seven so far. Cesc Fabregas deputizes today, getting a rare chance to start. Given the "minor" tag of the injury, Matic probably will be in contention next weekend for Chelsea.

Chelsea will put their seven-match Premier League winning streak on the line when they travel to Manchester City on Saturday.

Chelsea have won seven consecutive matches and conceded just once since the change to a back three, while their success has also been linked to star midfielder Eden Hazard. Hazard has been directly involved on six of his club's 19 goals during their unbeaten streak, scoring five and adding one assist. Hazard has scored seven league goals from 18 shots on target this season, and enters Week 14 as the most fouled player in the Premier League (44). Hazard will have a vital role to play on Saturday at the Etihad Stadium, as Chelsea go in search of their eight consecutive win for the first time since 2010.

Jamie Vardy will look to end his nine-match goal draught when Leicester City travel to Sunderland on Saturday.

Vardy, who hasn't scored for Leicester since September, should have multiple chances to end his goal drought come Saturday's must-win away fixture. Vardy has struggled to find the net this season, as he's scored just two goals through 11 league matches this campaign--the striker had 11 goals at this point last season. The English international will look to bounce back against Sunderland after he failed to register a shot on target in a 2-2 draw with Middlesbrough last weekend.

Younes Kaboul faces a late fitness check ahead of Watford's Week 14 trip to the Hawthorns.

With Craig Cathcart already ruled out due to injury and Miguel Britos suspended after picking up a 90th minute red card last weekend, a potential Kaboul absence could leave the Hornets thin along the back line this weekend. Sebastian Prodl will certainly start but it could be a makeshift partnership if Kaboul isn't fit to join him. Christian Kabasele, heavily criticized for taking too long to come on to the pitch for Kaboul last weekend, isn't in the squad which could further complicate things. This could be an opportunity for West Brom to exploit a depleted defense.

Glenn Whelan has recovered from a hamstring injury and should be fit to start against Burnley in Week 14 action.

Whelan isn't much of a fantasy factor himself but his value in the fantasy world is that his presence might allow Joe Allen to move further up the pitch where he has been very effective. Assuming that Mark Hughes starts the match this way, expect a great match from Allen in what is expected to be a Potters win.

Salomon Rondon will miss West Brom's Week 14 match at home against Watford after being diagnosed with tonsillitis this week.

The target forward will miss the Week 14 match which will probably result in Nacer Chadli being moved into a forward role against the Hornets. With James Morrison and Matt Phillips both playing well in attacking midfield roles the return of Chadli was already going to cause Tony Pulis to make some hard decisions with Rondon entrenched as the center forward. For Week 14, the path seems fairly straight forward with Chadli robust enough to take on Rondon's role. Beyond Week 14, the path becomes less clear.

Nacer Chadli is back and, due to Salomon Rondon's absence, could be moved up to a forward role against Watford this weekend.

For those who have been frustrated by Chadli's injury, consider this potential compensation for your patience. With Salomon Rondon out with tonsillitis and Saido Berahino still depressed/out of shape/out of favor, Chadli is the logical candidate to slot into the center forward role. It could be a nice fantasy return for the Belgian international.
