Robin Van Persie is not in the match-day 18 for Manchester United's Champions League match against Real Sociedad.

Van Persie was in training yesterday, so it remains to be seen if this is just a precaution after picking up niggling ijuries on international duty. Javier Hernandez will deputize. Elsewhere, the back four is unchanged after Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic were once again ruled out with injury.

Stephen Ireland will be held out of the Stoke City squad for Week 3 as he nurses a rib injury back to health.

Ireland wasn't likely to see a great deal of playing time with the arrivals of Steve Sidwell, Bojan Krkic, and Victor Moses to the midfield ranks but a rib injury will ensure that he doesn't figure in Week 3. It seems likely he'll be ready to return after the international break.

Jonny Evans returned to active duty against MK Dons this week and will likely eye a return to league action this weekend against Burnley

He isn't likely to put it on his resume given the embarrassing result but Jonny Evans is fit again and featured for Louis Van Gaal in the Capital One Cup this past week. With a central defense that featured little experience after Chris Smalling went out last weekend and Marcos Rojo still awaiting a work permit, Evans is likely to be welcomed back to the starting eleven this weekend as United search for a much-needed victory.

Sebastien Pocognoli has had a strong start to his West Brom career but he won't get to continue it in Week 3 with the right back out with a thigh injury.

He certainly isn't setting the world on fire but Sebastien Pocognoli has been a solid addition to a West Brom back line that needed a big renovation over the summer. As more of the projected starting group (Gareth McAuley and Cristian Gamboa) return to the line-up, Pocognoli will exit for at least one week.

A groin injury is set to keep US international Geoff Cameron out of the Stoke City squad for the Week 3 trip to Manchester City.

With transfer rumors and rumors of his falling down Mark Hughes' pecking order for playing time all swirling around him, Geoff Cameron will miss out on Week 3 with a groin injury. The American defender has been linked with multiple moves away from Stoke City in recent days so this weekend could be an interesting one for him but apparently nothing interesting will be happening on the pitch.

Brendan Rodgers has revealed that Adam Lallana will be in the squad for Liverpool when they travel to White Hart Lane to face Tottenham this weekend.

Rodgers went on further to say that the midfielder was still short of match fitness so you can rule out any chances of him starting. In fact, it is likely Lallana will not feature at all unless in an emergency situation as he is making a quicker-than-expected recovery from his knee injury.

Martin Skrtel joins a growing list of injured Liverpool defenders as he will need to be assessed over the next 48 hours before Brendan Rodgers can decide on his availability against Tottenham.

With a plethora of defenders heading into the season, Rodgers is finding himself quickly going from having a selection headache to now needing to piece together a healthy back line for Spurs. Should Skrtel miss out, Mamadou Sakho would most likely make his first start of the season and partner Dejan Lovren in the center of defense.

Tim Krul is worth considering for your goalkeeper position as Newcastle face Crystal Palace at home in Week 3.

The majority of you will own Thibaut Courtois at around £5million in the Yahoo game, and you certainly shouldn't be selling him at that price, but that doesn't mean the Chelsea keeper is a top pick in Week 3 with a tough away game at Everton. Newcastle are at home to a Crystal Palace side struggling to adapt to life after Tony Pulis, and the ever-reliable Krul can be picked up for a very reasonable £6million. A good alternative.

Alan Hutton should be high on the list of defenders you're considering for Week 3 of the Yahoo Fantasy Premier League game.

Many people had forgotten Hutton was still at Villa before his name showed up in the line-ups on opening day, but the Scotland defender has already started making up for lost time after rebuilding his relationship with Paul Lambert. He was excellent in the win at Stoke and followed that up with a man-of-the-match performance - and 16 fantasy points - against Newcastle, so should be considered for the home game against Hull.
Aug 29 - 4:29 AM

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany is another defender with a great fixture in Week 3.

The most affordable Manchester City defender guaranteed to start (until new signing Eliaquim Mangala becomes a regular), Kompany has had a quiet beginning to the season from a fantasy stand-point, but Stoke at home could bring a clean sheet and the captain is a danger in the opponent's box when going up for set-pieces.
Aug 29 - 4:31 AM

Arsenal's star midfielder Aaron Ramsey is the top premium midfield choice for Week 3.

Arsenal seemed destined for defeat at Everton before Ramsey popped up with yet another vital goal to trigger the fight-back, and the midfielder will be fresh after missing the exhausting Champions League victory in midweek due to suspension. Expect another inspired display against Leicester in a game the Gunners need to win to ensure they don't start dropping behind the early pace-setters.
Aug 29 - 4:32 AM

Nik Argiropoulos is tipping Yaya Toure to break out of his fantasy slump against Stoke in Week 3.

Do not adjust your screens; Yaya has scored two big fat zeroes in a row in the opening two weeks of the season after playing a slightly deeper role in comparison to last season. However, we expect him to get forward more often against Stoke and that usually brings fantasy points. The midfielder is well priced at around the £11million mark in the Yahoo game.
