Christian Benteke is ready to start against Everton this weekend after coming off the bench in Aston Villa's last game.

Villa boss Paul Lambert explained that Benteke was left on the bench because he wasn't fit for 90 minutes of action but after a full week of practice, we can expect Benteke to start for Villa this weekend. The striker is lethal and it will never be a mistake to play him in fantasy, regardless of opposition. In the meantime, rumors have resurfaced about Benteke moving to a bigger club in January and Aston Villa will have an important decision to make this winter.

Manchester United continued their strong start to the season with a convincing 0-4 win over Swansea City in which Paul Pogba provided a goal and two assists.

The opening half of the game was a possession battle which the Red Devils won, but outside a header off the bar on 10 minutes by Phil Jones, the Swans defense looked up to the task, keeping Romelu Lukaky quiet. Right on the 45th minute though, a corner kick was headed powerfully by Pogba on toward goal and Eric Bailly was there to poach the ball in on the line. It would remain 0-1 until the 80th minute and that's when the explosion happened. First, a Swansea turnover allowed Henrikh Mkhitaryan to pick out an open Lukaku who slotted home for his 3rd goal of the young campaign. Mkhi then fed Pogba a clever ball and the latter looped one over the Swans keeper for the third goal. Substitute Anthony Martial joined in the fun moments after that, with Pogba again playing provider. The defense was solid but were not tested too much. There is fantasy gold all over this side right now.

Swansea City's home opener was one to forget as they ran up against a blossoming Manchester United attack and were beaten soundly, 0-4.

It was always going to be a tough assignment for Paul Clement to get a positive result here, but his gameplan at least kept his side in the match right up until the 45th minute. Their best chance to score came very early on when Jordan Ayew found himself in loads of space, took it into the area and tried to lob one into the far corner but it hit the woodwork. The defense, meanwhile, did its best to stave off United's possession advantage as Roque Mesa made his first PL start in central midfield. They would concede just before halftime though from a corner and United were in control for the entire second half, eventually pounding the Swans with three goals in the space of four minutes. It is rather clear Swansea need to do some shopping for impact players before this transfer window closes.

Slaven Bilic may be forced back into the transfer market after Winston Reid suffered what looked to be a serious calf injury when warming up at St Marys’ on Saturday.

The West Ham centre-back, who has just signed a new six-year contract, only returned to the squad 3 weeks ago following knee surgery in May, but at first glance, Reid could be set for another extended spell out after being carried off on a stretcher. Slaven Bilic made four changes from the side well-beaten at Old Trafford, and it was one of those players – Angelo Ogbonna - who was recalled to the starting line-up to partner Jose Fonte. James Collins is capable of playing centrally while Cheikhou Kouyate had a spell as makeshift defender last season, but neither is ideal. Bilic may consider a move for Eliaquim Mangala, who was on the West Ham radar, before they dropped their interest in favour of William Carvalho.

Hal Robson-Kanu was the hero and almost a goat as his goal provided the difference before he was sent off late.

The Wales international contributed a second unlikely scorer for Tony Pulis for the second consecutive weekend. Albion completed their second consecutive 1-0 win of the season in fine Pulls fashion. The one downside was Robson-Kanu being sent off late after his elbow came in too high fighting for a ball in the air.

Warford upset the odds to secure an impressive away win over Bournemouth.

The Hornets went ahead thanks to the contributions of two new signings. Andre Gray crossed for Brazilian Richarlison to prod home the first for Marco Silva's men. The second was a throwback to twelve months ago though, as Etienne Capoue struck from range to double the lead. Bournemouth started with afobe up front, but he saw his best chance sved while Josh King also headed an opportunity over the bar.

Liverpool needed the comforts of home to secure its first win of the season in a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace.

After a hectic, yet disappointing 3-3 draw with Watford on the opening weekend, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp made some defensive changes–in came Andrew Robertson, Joe Gomez and Ragnar Klaven– to secure a clean sheet in a hard-fought match with visiting Palace. It was Saido Mane who scored the lone goal and match-winner, thanks to summer signing Dominic Solanke's effort. Solanke dispossessed Palace midfielder Luka Milivojevic near the penalty area and the ball fell fortuitously to Mane inside the box in the 73rd minute as the Senegalese hit the back of the net for the second straight match.

Crystal Palace threw its whole team back, but was undone by one mental mistake in a 1-0 loss to Liverpool.

In the 73rd minute, Luka Milivojevic failed to get the ball out of the area quick enough, allowing Dominic Solanke to knock the ball loose for Sadio Mane's match-winner. Despite the loss, Palace moved in the right direction with a solid defensive performance following the season-opening 3-0 loss to Huddersfield Town last weekend. Wayne Hennessey was masterful with 12 saves as Liverpool easily could have come away with three or four on the afternoon. But the Eagles only managed one shot on goal with star attacker Wilfried Zaha.

Crystal Palace will receive a major boost in midfield with Yohan Cabaye and James McArthur both returning from injury.

The central midfield pairing missed the club's opening match against Huddersfield Town as they recovered from injuries that hampered them in the preseason. However, the Eagles will have to cope without star winger Wilfried Zaha for about the next four weeks due to a knee injury. Said manager Frank de Boer: "Apart from him we do have most of the squad ready although some may not be fit for 90 minutes for example Yohan Cabaye and James McArthur are ready to be available to play some minutes for us."

Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy has a chance to make his debut against Everton on Monday.

The 23-year-old missed the club's opening match with Brighton as he recovers from a thigh injury, but has a chance to make his debut against Everton as he is in the final stages of his recovery. Danilo filled in for the Frenchman, who became the most expensive defender in the world with a £52 million move from Monaco in July. Said manager Pep Guardiola: "Mendy is at last part of his rehabilitation – still not 100 percent but he’s almost done. And Fabian Delph, too, is the same position as Mendy, so we have all the players fit."

Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner revealed striker Nahki Wells is expected to miss five to seven weeks following an ankle operation.

Wells was not expected to feature against Newcastle United, as the former club record £1.3m signing underwent surgery early this month to have a screw removed from his ankle. Speaking on Wells' status ahead of Sunday's clash at the John Smiths' Stadium, Wagner confirmed the striker had his stitches out on Thursday and won't likely be ready until sometime around the second international break (October 2-10). With first-choice striker Steve Mounie coming off a brace against Crystal Palace and Collin Quaner having faired well off the substitute's bench, the absence of the Bermuda international is nothing more than a slight knock to the frontline depth. When Wells does return, he will face big competition from Quaner and Laurent Depoitre for a place in the first team.
