Ashley Williams has been ruled out of Swansea's Europa League tie against Kuban Krasnodar, and will be a major doubt for the visit of West Ham.

Williams still has pain in his ankle, and isn't expected back in training for a few days yet. He's even a doubt for the Swan's derby clash against Cardiff on 3 November. Jordi Amat will continue to partner Chico Flores in his absence.

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.

Joe Allen has been a great story after moving to Stoke City but his fantasy value hinges significantly on where he plays on the pitch.

Joe Allen is back from suspension and a date against Burnley at the Britannia looks tantalizing from a fantasy point of view given the Clarets' struggles on the road. That said, Allen's fantasy value has been very much dependent on where Mark Hughes has deployed him on the pitch. When deployed as a "number ten" Allen has been prolific while a role at the base of midfield has meant significantly less interesting production. With Glenn Whelan back in training and reportedly fit, Allen could move back up front. It is only the uncertainty that makes him less than a sure-fire fantasy pick for Week 14.

West Ham United defender Arthur Masuaku is prepared to step into the starting XI for Saturday's London derby with Arsenal.

Masuaku returned from a two-months injury spell in Wednesday's EFL Cup defeat by Manchester United, and is in line to deputize for the injured Aaron Cresswell against Arsenal. Masuaku, who started the first five league matches with Cresswell unavailable through injury, told West Ham's official website he is ready to once again step up. "We lost Michail Antonio and Cressy through injury [on Wednesday] and that makes things more difficult," said the 23-year-old defender, who debuted in the London derby at Chelsea in August. "I hope that we are going to beat Arsenal on Saturday and that is my only target."

Middlesbrough defender Dani Ayala could feature in Monday's fixture with Hull City, according to manager Aitor Karanka.

Ayala, who has missed the last four league matches through injury, could make his return this week. "Dani is training with the team and he is ready, it’s just my decision," manager Aitor Karanka said. "I have to take it all in and we will see." This is good news for Middlesbrough as they will most likely be without fullback George Friend for Monday's fixture with Hull.

Middlesbrough manager Aitor Karanka says defender George Friend is his only fitness concern ahead of Monday's match against Hull City at the Riverside Stadium.

George Friend has been ruled out of Monday's clash with Hull City but seems to progress well as he recovers from an ankle injury, according to manager Aitor Karanka. "As everybody expected, George is going really quick," Karanka said. "He’s doing really well but I think another week or two at least." With Friend unavailable for GW14, Fabio is expected to make his third start of the season.

Baars left Ajax in spite of being made captain of the B1 side this season.

Baars has already featured for the Red Devils' Under 16 team and will be eligible for Under 18 competition from January.

Hull City are set to give 19 year old striker Jarrod Bowen his first Premier League start on Monday night after injuries have ruled out most other options.

Bowen has been around the fringes of the first team squad of late having appeared in the league, EFL Cup and FA Cup for the club already. He has been consistently scoring for the Hull Development Squad scored a couple of goals for the senior squad in 331 minutes of preseason friendlies as the squad became short of numbers. Manager Mike Phelan has admitted he has been impressed by Bowen and may be forced to introduce the striker before a live TV audience against 'Boro as Mbokani is suspended while Hernandez, Keane and Maloney are injured.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has insisted that Bastian Schweinsteiger does not have to leave the club in the upcoming January transfer window.

The World Cup winning former German international had been ostracised from Mourinho's first team plans up until his reappearance as a substitute against West Ham in the ELF Cup on Wednesday - his first competitive minutes since the new manager arrived in the summer. Schweinsteiger had been training with the United reserves and Under 23s until October until he was brought back to first team training to make up the numbers. Mou also admitted that United did try to sell him in the summer. However, the midfielder has 18 months left to run on his contract and may suddenly be tempted to stay and fight for his place one last time at the highest level before a long-speculated move to the MLS. Mourinho did hint that any future role for Basti would be as a rotation option at best.
