Emmanuel Adebayor is in line for his first Tottenham appearance of the season in the Europa League meeting with Sheriff Tiraspol in Moldova.

The Togo international had been training with the reserves so it is slightly surprising to read that he could be set for a first team return. There is no doubt that a fully fit and firing Adebayor could still be a useful option for Andre Villas-Boas, but he's likely to find himself behind Roberto Soldado and Jermain Defoe for Premier League matches and a January move is still entirely possible.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Dusan Tadic can continue his good fantasy form as Southampton travel to Upton Park to face West Ham in Week 3.

The summer signing from FC Twente is already showing signs of promise with a 12 point haul against West Brom in Week 2, containing a smattering of successful crosses and a couple of shots on target. Tadic is classed as a midfielder but had an excellent goal-scoring record in Holland and is lining up as a left-sided forward in Ronald Koeman's current system, so he's well worth a look for the Saints' trip to West Ham.

West Ham's Cheikhou Kouyate is showing signs of being a solid points scorer in the Yahoo fantasy format

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce reckons Kouyaté reminds him of Patrick Vieira, and the new man at Upton Park has put in two powerful midfield performances already. He's intercepting passes, winning tackles and has registered an assist and two shots on target in his first two games, suggesting he could prove a very handy fantasy option as the season progresses.

Nik Argiropoulos believes Stevan Jovetic will continue his excellent start to the season against Stoke in Week 3.

The striker displayed his class against Liverpool in Week 2, grabbing a brace to back-up the superb performance put in throughout pre-season. In this form Jovetic will be a starter for the foreseeable future and he can be added to your Yahoo team for almost half the cost of Sergio Aguero.
Aug 29 - 4:41 AM

Manchester United's Robin van Persie can open his goal account for the season against Burnley in Week 3.

The return to fitness of van Persie is likely to have a negative impact on Wayne Rooney's fantasy returns as the two men share attacking points, but you cannot ignore RvP at £12million when he has a match against Burnley. Especially when you remember the Dutchman will take penalty duty back from Rooney.
