Mauricio Pochettino cleared up rumors about Artur Boruc's health by saying Boruc is not injured and is fit for the game against Manchester United this weekend.

Boruc has been a good fantasy choice all season and has a good defense in front of him, but even with that, I wouldn't start him against Manchester United. United have too many players who can score from any situation(Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney), and despite them struggling, it's too risky to play Boruc.

Felipe Luis made his Chelsea debut in a friendly 1-1 draw against WAC RZ Pellets.

Luis Felipe started at left-back in a back line featuring Branislav Ivanovic, John Terry, and Kurt Zouma. He played the entire first half and part of the second and was replaced by Nathan Ake. Luis looks like he'll be a regular starter at Stamford Bridge this season. Jose Mourinho chose to play everyone in the squad in this match as he tries to bring his players to match fitness. Fernando Torres, Cesar Azpilicueta, Gary Cahill, Cesc Fabregas, and Diego Costa were absent as they were given time to recover from their World Cup participation earlier this summer.

Petr Cech started for the first time since suffering a shoulder injury at the end of the last year.

Cech started in Chelsea's friendly against Austrian side WAC RZ Pellets and appeared healthy. There is uncertainty at the position this year as Chelsea have brought back youngster Thibaut Courtois who was on loan for the past two seasons. Courtois has repeatedly stated he wants playing time but Petr Cech is still in his prime so it's unknown what Chelsea will do. The two most likely options are loaning out Courtois or selling Cech to a club outside of the Premier League. Whoever ends up with the job will be an immediate candidate for top fantasy goalkeeper this season.

Chelsea defender Kenneth Omeruo will return to Middlesbrough on a season-long loan according to Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka.

The Nigerian defender spent the second half of last season at Middlesbrough and featured regularly. Omeruo has earned a lot of praise from Karanka and has developed into a solid player. If he continues growing at this rate, Omeruo can replace John Terry at Chelsea in the near future. The 20-year-old is a versatile defender who can play at center-back and left-back. Expect him to be a great fantasy option in the future.

Andy Carroll has been withdrawn from the West Ham United side touring New Zealand after sustaining an ankle injury in training.

While the club made sure to point out in the press release that this ankle injury has nothing to do with the ankle injury that kept him out for much of last season, there have to be mounting fears over Carroll's ability to stay fit. Having only made 15 Premier League appearances in 2013-14 and not having hit the 30 match mark since 2011-12 at Liverpool, there is a decided trend developing. Reports indicate that his absence from pre-season friendlies will be "precautionary" but cynical Hammers supporters would be justified in their concern about a spell on the sidelines.

Mark Hughes continues to remake the Stoke City squad with the signing of former Barcelona rising star Bojan Krkic.

Krkic has seen his career stall in recent years after breaking Lionel Messi's record as the youngest Barcelona player ever to feature in a La Liga match. Tipped for great things, he has never lived up to the hype despite loan opportunities at Roma, AC Milan and Ajax in recent seasons. This is a high risk/high reward move for Stoke City on a player who is still only 23 years old and could easily still come good on his early promise with an extended run of matches under a less intense spotlight than his recent stops. He's definitely a new arrival to monitor over the first month of the season.

Looking to fill the Romelu Lukaku-sized hole in their front line, West Brom have broken their transfer record to sign Nigerian international Brown Ideye.

Ideye represents a big gamble for West Brom after a year of failed experiments at forward last season. At 6' tall and 155 lbs., the Nigerian will never be mistaken for Romelu Lukaku but he is capable of holding down the middle and letting West Brom's runners like Stephane Sessegnon and Saido Berahino play off of him. Never a huge goal scorer in either France (17 goals in 52 appearances) or Russia (33 in 74), he is coming into his prime at 25-years-old and could still have some upside for the Baggies in addition to providing the focal point that has been missing since Lukaku's loan spell ended. He would have to improve on his Dynamo Kiev goal-scoring rate while stepping up in competition to be a serious fantasy consideration.

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet is still hoping to sign Marcos Alonso but admits a deal is 'close, but not close enough'.

Alonso had a successful loan spell from January of last season, making 16 Premier League appearances including some key performances during Sunderland's remarkable run-in to avoid relegation. The defender returned to Fiorentina in May and the Italian club would like to keep him, but Alonso himself is reportedly keen to return to the Premier League. Gus Poyet is working on a permanent deal ahead of the new season, with the Black Cats desperate to add another full-back to their squad.

Cardiff City striker Fraizer Campbell is to have a medical at Crystal Palace later on Wednesday, according to Sky sources.

Sky had already reported that a fee had been agreed between Palace and Cardiff, before Premier League new-boys Leicester City tried to gazump the deal by meeting Campbell's release clause. However, Sky Sports claim talks with the Foxes have since collapsed, leaving the striker free to travel to London to finalise personal terms and complete a medical.

Newell's Old Boys are confident they can end Ignacio Scocco's Sunderland struggles and take him back to Argentina.

Scocco was signed in January and was expected to provide competition for Steven Fletcher and Jozy Altidore, but the move has been a disaster. The 29-year-old striker failed to start a game or score a goal after his arrival, as Gus Poyet limited him to just six disappointing appearances from the bench, and with Sunderland prepared to cut their losses, Newell's Old Boys expect to complete a deal within the next few days.

QPR have signed Cardiff City defender Steven Caulker for an undisclosed fee.

While the deal is undisclosed the majority of media outlets are reporting a four-year-deal and a fee in the region of £8.5million. The 22-year-old defender leaves relegated Cardiff to join up with his former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp, and instantly boosts the chances of Queens Park Rangers avoiding relegation this season. England international (with one cap so far) Caulker will form a new partnership alongside recently signed veteran Rio Ferdinand, and should provide value in the Yahoo fantasy game having been one of the most productive defensive point scorers last season.

Jose Campana has completed his transfer from Crystal Palace to Sampdoria for an undisclosed fee.

A lot was expected of Campana when he joined the Eagles from Sevilla last summer, but the truth is the young man never settled at Selhurst Park and was loaned out to Nuremberg of Germany in the January transfer window. The midfielder returned to the club in late May but was not in Tony Pulis' plans for the season ahead and so he has been allowed to leave for Sampdoria for a nominal fee.
