With Bacary Sagna recovering faster than expected from a hamstring issue, it isn't clear which right back will start for Arsenal in Week 8.

Fantasy managers will be frustrated at the news that Bacary Sagna may play a part when Saturday comes but exactly what that part is isn't clear. The result of the uncertainty is that both Sagna and Jenkinson have little fantasy value. What does seem clear is that, barring a set-back, Sagna will return to the starting line-up for Week 9 and beyond.

Manchester United delivered a classic José Mourinho era performance as they overcame Burnley 1-0 at Turf Moor.

For a few hours at least, the gap to league leaders Manchester City is down to nine points. The first half was uneventful, as Burnley forced just two saves out of David De Gea whilst United never managed to make superior possession translate into a single shot on target, highlighting where the guile of Alexis Sanchez would help them. United's best movement in the first half came down the left where Young and Martial were having some success, and it was the latter who opened the scoring with a great finish off the crossbar with United's first shot on target. Burnley almost hit back immediately as Gudmundsson struck the cross bar from a free-kick. United stepped back and left Burnley attack them, and the hosts created a number of half-chances they ultimately couldn't finish whilst United spurned a few good opportunities on the counter.

Thanks to Oumar Niasse's equalizer, Everton secured a point at home in a 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion.

Sporting a new-look side with Cenk Tosun flanked by Theo Walcott up top, the Toffees struggled to mesh. Things were compounded when Jay Rodriguez put the Baggies ahead in the seventh minute after a Grzegorz Krychowiak pass found a breach in the Everton defense. But in the final 30 minutes of the match, Sam Allardyce sent Wayne Rooney and Oumar Niasse on to change the match, and within 56 seconds of entering, Niasse played the star. Following a scramble in the box, Rooney played the ball across to Walcott, who flicked on to Niasse for the equalizer. But the point comes at a cost as James McCarthy was stretchered off in the 57th minute with a gruesome injury.

Two second half goals shared equally between West Ham and Bournemouth mean that both sides continue their moves away from the relegation zone.

Bournemouth grabbed the lead against the run of play in the 71st minute with their first shot on target of the game. Junior Stanislas delivered a through ball to Ryan Fraser who slammed it past Adrián. However the Cherries' lead did last very long as substitute Javier Hernandez reminded David Moyes why he deserves a starting place in the team. The Mexico striker reacted fastest to finish after Begovic had saved a shot from the in-form Marko Arnautovic. Stanislas went closest to scoring the winner but Adrian was equal to his effort.

Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez both scored as Leicester City moved up to seventh in the table with a 2-0 win over Watford at King Power Stadium.

Both sides traded chances before Leicester took a deserved lead in the 39th minute. Having seen two major chances in the early stages, Vardy latched onto a through-ball and drew a penalty from Watford center-back Molla Wague. The England international took the honors and made no mistake, firing the home side in front with his 10th league goal of the season. Wilfred Ndidi was lively throughout and had a pair of powerful efforts blocked in the second half, but it was Mahrez who sealed the match in stoppage time. The Algerian made sure of all three points with moment of individual brilliance, as he dribbled past Christian Kabasele and finished into the bottom corner from a tight angle.

Nacho Monreal scored and provided two assists inside of 13 minutes as Arsenal battered Crystal Palace 4-1.

It was a route from the outset as Arsenal scored all four of their goals inside of 22 minutes as Monreal, Iwobi, Koscielny, and Lacazette all helped the Gunners start to move on from their soon to be former talisman Alexis Sanchez. The only downside was Nacho Monreal going off in the first half after laying waste to Palace for just over 30 minutes.

Watford have now lost eight of their last 11 league matches following a 2-0 defeat at Leicester City.

Watford have struggled since their hot start to the season and won just once since November. Marco Silva deployed an attack-minded lineup at King Power Stadium but the trio of Richarlison, Andre Carrillo and Troy Deeney were unable to impact truly put Leicester under pressure. The Hornets went behind on 39 minutes when Molla Wague brought down Jamie Vardy and the striker converted from the spot mark. Wague was then forced off in the second-half with what appeared to be a hamstring problem, while Riyad Mahrez capped off the match with strike in the stoppage-time. The fitness of Wague will be a concern for Silva as his side are already without a handful of defenders.

New Stoke City manager Paul Lambert won his first match in charge as the Potters topped Huddersfield Town 2-0 at the Bet365 Stadium.

Lambert, who succeeded Mark Hughes on Monday, began his spell at Stoke in fine fashion. Boosted by the return of defensive anchor and captain Ryan Shawcross, the Potters kept their first clean sheet since mid-December. After a goalless first-half, Joe Allen broke the deadlock when he steered home a cross from Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting in the 53rd minute. The home side took control of the match following Allen's goal and then doubled their advantage with a nifty team goal. Choupo-Moting was again the catalyst, as Xherdan Shaqiri and Mame Biram Diouf then combined on the edge of the area before the latter finished past Town goalkeeper Jonas Lossl. The Potters move out of the relegation zone with the victory.

Huddersfield Town have now lost three straight matches following a 2-0 defeat at Stoke City.

Town boss David Wagner handed Alex Pritchard his full debut and brought in Steve Mounie for Laurent Depoitre up front. However, the attacking changes weren't enough to get his side past Stoke. The Terriers did manage three shots on target, including a Mounie strike from distance late on, though none were enough to put Jack Butland under pressure. Joe Allen struck early in the second-half and Mame Biram Diouf added a second with 20 minutes remaining, securing all three points for the Potters. The defeat leaves Huddersfield three points about the relegation zone and winless in their last six matches.

James McCarthy has been ruled out for the rest of the season after suffering an "awful injury" at Goodison Park on Saturday.

The Everton midfielder was stretchered off following a challenge on West Brom attacker Salomon Rondon on the hour mark, a tackle which left McCarthy lying in agony and the Venezuelan visibly shaken. "It's a tibular and fibular [double leg] fracture compounded. A very nasty injury," Sam Allardyce told BBC Sport. "We’ll do the operation as quick as we can." Average recovery time is around nine months, although teammate Seamus Coleman has already spent over 300 days on the sidelines. McCarthy has endured a stop / start season due to a persistent hamstring problem but having returned to the fore in December, the 27-year-old was hoping to push on in 2018 following an injury plagued couple of years. Idrissa Gueye is the player most likely to come in to sit alongside Morgan Schneiderlin.

Brighton fell behind by two goals early and could not find a way past Chelsea's backup keeper as the Seagulls were thrashed, 0-4.

Chris Hughton went with a five man defense instead of the usual four, but it would seem a 10-man defense would not have made a difference today as Brighton would concede twice inside the first six minutes. To their credit, the home side and their supporters did not lose their competitive spirit and came close on several occasions to cutting the deficit in half and making a game of it. Many of those occasions involved Ezequiel Schelotto, who was delivering balls in from his wingback role as well as cutting into the area himself, nearly drawing a penalty twice. Tomer Hemed had a header from two yards out stopped and the post was hit a couple of times. Schelotto did show promise from a fantasy perspective if he can get an extended run in the side.
