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.

Gylfi Sigurdsson has completed his move to Swansea from Tottenham.

Sigurdsson spent the 2011/12 season on loan at Swansea from Hoffenheim and had an extremely successful spell, scoring seven goals, but the resulting move to Spurs never really worked out. He returns to the Liberty Stadium on a permanent basis as part of the deal that saw Ben Davies and Michel Vorm move in the opposite direction. The move makes sense for both the clubs and the player, and would also be good news for fantasy managers, with Sigurdsson likely to be handed a first team role and set piece duty under Garry Monk's stewardship.

Record-signing Erik Lamela scored twice in the first half as Tottenham beat FC Toronto 3-2 in a pre-season friendly.

Is this the first sign of the "new lease of life" Lamela mentioned in an interview earlier in the week? The winger was excellent in the first half of this match, looking fit, sharp and showing a good understanding with team-mates Christian Eriksen, Aaron Lennon and Roberto Soldado. Lamela hit two good strikes with his left foot - both assisted by Soldado - with substitute Andros Townsend adding the winner late in the game after Toronto had fought back from two goals down. This was another good work out for Mauricio Pochettinho's squad, although five goals conceded in two games will be a slight concern, even at this early stage of pre-season.

Argentine club Newell's Old Boys have confirmed the signing of Sunderland striker Ignacio Scocco.

As we discussed yesterday, Scocco signed in January and was expected to provide competition for Steven Fletcher and Jozy Altidore, but the move has been a disaster. The 29-year-old striker failed to start a game or score a goal after his arrival, as Gus Poyet limited him to just six disappointing Premier League appearances from the bench, and Sunderland have decided to cut their losses. Scocco is returning for his third spell at the Argentine club.

Mauro Zarate scored his first goal for West Ham United in their 2-1 loss to Wellington Phoenix.

Zarate was acquired to support Andy Carroll in attack but with the big man getting injured again, Zarate could find himself leading the line for West Ham at the beginning of the season. He costs £5.50M in the Yahoo game and is listed as a midfielder, making him a bargain for fantasy managers. To make the deal sweeter, West Ham have a favorable schedule to start the season with games against Tottenham, Crystal Palace, Southampton, and Hull City. Enner Valencia also gets a big bump with Andy Carroll's injury struggles.

Ben Davies and Michel Vorm have both completely their moves from Swansea City to Tottenham Hotspur today according to the Spurs official Twitter feed.

Both moves have been in the press as being essentially done deals for over a week but today brings official word that Spurs have a new left back in Ben Davies and a new goalkeeper in Michel Vorm. Based on his form two seasons ago, the notion of Vorm accepting a back-up role to Hugo Lloris would be odd but after a disappointing season that was also marred by injury and the arrival of Lukasz Fabianski, he was surplus to requirements. Davies will be the presumed starter ahead of Danny Rose who has been rumored to be on the move himself. No word as to whether Gylfi Sigurdsson will be moving in the opposite direction.

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert has made it clear that defender Ron Vlaar is not for sale.

There has been interest for Vlaar after his impressive World Cup performance but the Aston Villa defender has been labeled not for sale. Paul Lambert is under pressure to improve his team's performance and the loss of Vlaar would be huge. Ron Vlaar has a year left on his contract but Lambert is determined to get Vlaar to agree to an extension soon. Vlaar's fantasy value can increase as Villa's defense improves with the return of Jores Okore.

Felipe Luis made his Chelsea debut in a friendly 1-1 draw against WAC RZ Pellets.

Luis Felipe started at left-back in a back line featuring Branislav Ivanovic, John Terry, and Kurt Zouma. He played the entire first half and part of the second and was replaced by Nathan Ake. Luis looks like he'll be a regular starter at Stamford Bridge this season. Jose Mourinho chose to play everyone in the squad in this match as he tries to bring his players to match fitness. Fernando Torres, Cesar Azpilicueta, Gary Cahill, Cesc Fabregas, and Diego Costa were absent as they were given time to recover from their World Cup participation earlier this summer.

Petr Cech started for the first time since suffering a shoulder injury at the end of the last year.

Cech started in Chelsea's friendly against Austrian side WAC RZ Pellets and appeared healthy. There is uncertainty at the position this year as Chelsea have brought back youngster Thibaut Courtois who was on loan for the past two seasons. Courtois has repeatedly stated he wants playing time but Petr Cech is still in his prime so it's unknown what Chelsea will do. The two most likely options are loaning out Courtois or selling Cech to a club outside of the Premier League. Whoever ends up with the job will be an immediate candidate for top fantasy goalkeeper this season.

Southampton are ready to make an improved bid for Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster as a replacement for Artur Boruc.

Artur Boruc had Southampton's starting job locked down when healthy last season but has been an average goalkeeper prone to mistakes. New Saints manager Ronald Koeman wants to improve the position by signing Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster. Forster has been extremely impressive for Celtic and even had a 13 match, 1256 minute streak without conceding a goal. The keeper is highly valued by his club and is expected to cost at least £10m, a price Southampton can afford after selling many of their prized players this summer. It's unknown if Boruc will play as a backup or leave the club if Southampton can sign Forster.

Chelsea defender Kenneth Omeruo will return to Middlesbrough on a season-long loan according to Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka.

The Nigerian defender spent the second half of last season at Middlesbrough and featured regularly. Omeruo has earned a lot of praise from Karanka and has developed into a solid player. If he continues growing at this rate, Omeruo can replace John Terry at Chelsea in the near future. The 20-year-old is a versatile defender who can play at center-back and left-back. Expect him to be a great fantasy option in the future.

Andy Carroll has been withdrawn from the West Ham United side touring New Zealand after sustaining an ankle injury in training.

While the club made sure to point out in the press release that this ankle injury has nothing to do with the ankle injury that kept him out for much of last season, there have to be mounting fears over Carroll's ability to stay fit. Having only made 15 Premier League appearances in 2013-14 and not having hit the 30 match mark since 2011-12 at Liverpool, there is a decided trend developing. Reports indicate that his absence from pre-season friendlies will be "precautionary" but cynical Hammers supporters would be justified in their concern about a spell on the sidelines.
