Fabricio Coloccini, who had already ruled out of the weekend's Tyne-Wear derby, is now expected to be out through Christmas.

Coloccini injured his groin on international duty and Newcastle is now discovering the true extent of the injury. The Magpies' defensive lynchpin will miss around ten matches and it will be up to Steven Taylor, and increasingly less likely, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa to fill the void.

By all accounts, Diego Costa will make the start for Chelsea this weekend but Jose Mourinho made a point to say that his star striker will require "special care" going forward.

Perhaps on a day like Halloween, one can bust out the Ouija board and try to hold a seance to figure out exactly what "special care" means, but from a fantasy perspective, it will likely mean cutting into his minutes with a substitution most weeks. The previous two league starts he made before his injury marked the first time this season that he completed 90 minutes in consecutive matches. Regardless, he will still be a fantasy giant as long as he is on the pitch and by all accounts, he will lace his boots up for QPR tomorrow.

Garry Monk confirmed that Gylfi Sigurdsson has been training this week and by all accounts should be fit for Swansea's weekend trip to Everton.

Vital to Swansea's attack and a popular fantasy darling in the opening months of the season, it is big news to know that Siggy appears to have avoided any serious issues with his groin. Though to be fair, any issue with the groin should be considered a serious one. Unfortunately, the Swans have a three game stretch where they play Everton away, Arsenal at home, and then Manchester City away. Even a healthy, in-form Sigurdsson may find it difficult to produce in those fixtures.

Brendan Rodgers has announced that Jose Enrique will not be available for selection this weekend as Liverpool travel to face Newcastle United.

With just one start in the Reds' first 9 gameweeks, it is safe to say that Enrique is a fantasy ghost these days, Rodgers has shown thus far this season that he will not turn to the Spaniard unless absolutely necessary. Daniel Sturridge and Mamadou Sakho remain out, and peripheral figures Suso and Jon Flanagan round out the unavailable for Liverpool heading into Week 10.

Swansea City have won their appeal of a three-match ban handed to Federico Fernandez after his midweek red card in the Capital One Cup, and is available for selection this weekend against Everton.

To the eye of a neutral fan the foul was extremely soft, if a foul at all, and the decision to lift the suspension was just. Unfortunately for Swansea fans, the man advantage Liverpool enjoyed in those last moments set up a game-winning goal, knocking the Swans out of the Cup, something they cannot appeal. Expect Fernandez to go right back into Garry Monk's XI v Everton in a not-too-appealing fantasy matchup.

Thibaut Courtois is the top keeper pick for Week 10.

Given the fact Chelsea have a home game against Queens Park Rangers and Courtois is so well priced at £7million in the Yahoo fantasy game, I'm not sure you need to consider anybody else for your goalkeeper spot. A certain victory and an excellent opportunity for a clean sheet for the Belgian stopper.

Filipe Luis will continue at left back for Chelsea's home match with QPR, making him an excellent defensive option for your fantasy team.

With Cesar Azpilicueta serving the final match of his ban after the red card picked up against the Palace in Week Eight, we can be certain that Filipe Luis will take the left-back spot for his side's home match against Queens Park Rangers. The Brazilian defender is the most affordable way to cover the potential Chelsea clean sheet, available at a shade over £7million, and will be desperate to impress Jose Mourinho in an effort to keep his place for Week Eleven.

Crystal Palace midfielder Mile Jedinak can continue his fine form as his side face Sunderland at home in Week 10.

Jedinak has officially taken over penalty duty from Jason Puncheon, so when you combine that with his already-excellent fantasy productivity from a variety of defensive contributions, the Crystal Palace captain really has become one of the most effective midfielders in the Yahoo fantasy game. A home match against struggling Sunderland will provide the Australian with the opportunity of another double-digit return,

Santi Cazorla is Nik's pick of the Arsenal midfielders for the winnable home clash with Burnley.

Cazorla has never regained the form he showed in his debut season in England, but the midfielder still performs a valuable job for Arsenal and is having a decent campaign so far. When looking at Cazorla's stats it's surprising to see that he has picked up the majority of his fantasy points for defensive work, winning eleven tackles and making nine interceptions in eight matches, but the Spaniard should be able to focus his efforts on attacking this week as Burnley visit the Emirates.
Oct 31 - 5:24 AM

With Chelsea hosting QPR we are recommending Eden Hazard as the pick of the premium midfielders.

Wing-wizard Hazard was a top midfield pick in this column last week, but unfortunately he didn't perform well enough against Manchester United to justify his expensive price, returning a disappointing eight fantasy points. However, a home game against QPR is a different proposition altogether and we're backing Hazard to repay the faith shown in him by fantasy managers by delivering a match-winning display in Week Ten.
Oct 31 - 5:26 AM

Alexis Sanchez is the top forward pick of Week 10 with Burnley visiting the Emirates.

Sanchez is on fire now he's fully settled in to the Premier League, bagging three goals in his last two matches to make it five Premier League goals in eight appearances. Arsenal face bottom side Burnley at home in Week 10, so it would be dangerous to leave the Chilean out of your fantasy side.

Second-half goals from Erik Lamela and Harry Kane sent Tottenham into the quarter-finals of the League Cup at the expense of Championship side Brighton.

For the second mid-week running we have Kane and Lamela scoring the goals to give Tottenham a victory. Lamela was introduced at half-time and bagged the opener within 10 minutes after some neat interplay with Roberto Soldado, before Kane sealed the win by stabbing the ball home after Soldado's shot was saved. Kane is the club's top scorer in all competitions this season with six goals and may have done enough to earn a start against Aston Villa on Sunday.
