Just one day after firing Frank de Boer, Crystal Palace has announced Roy Hodgson as the club's new manager.

The experienced manager most recently coached the England national team in the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Euros before leaving last summer. Hodgson arrives at the club on a two-year deal after previously managing Blackburn Rovers, Fulham, Liverpool and West Bromwich Albion in the top flight. Said Hodgson: "It is very rewarding to find myself here now, in different times, as the Palace manager at a club that I have always loved and admired with a huge potential. We are the club of south London, with an enormously large fan base. The ambitions here are realistic and there is an enormous potential for growth and I hope we can achieve our goals."

Tyrone Mings has been ruled out for "at least a month" due to an ongoing back issue.

Speaking ahead of this weekend’s trip to Goodison Park, the Cherries boss confirmed Mings would be out "for a period of time" after plans to manage his back problem with treatment had failed: "He'll see a specialist and it has been recommended that he has [at least] a month on the sidelines. It will be interesting to see how that rest affects his back, he has pain in one area so hopefully the rest should cure it." Fortunately, Bournemouth were able to welcome Steve Cook back into the ranks this week and the defender came through 90 minutes unscathed [against Brighton] in the Carabao Cup. Apart from Callum Wilson [ACL] and Adam Federici [knee surgery] who remain long-term absentees, the squad is okay. Junior Stanislas' return to action on Tuesday was a "big boost" and there are no other injury problems.

Stoke City are "struggling a little bit defensively" ahead of their clash with Chelsea after Mark Hughes revealed Kevin Wimmer is a "major doubt" because of injury.

The summer signing from Tottenham damaged his hamstring on Tuesday night and is considered a doubt for Saturday. "We will have to have a look and see how he is today [Friday]," revealed the Potters boss who is missing a several key players. Ryan Shawcross [back], Geoff Cameron [hamstring] and Kurt Zouma [ineligible] won't be available, and, as it stands "of the senior centre-halves that I've got, I've only got one. We are a little bit stretched to say the least. I'm keeping my fingers crossed [but] I am hoping [Wimmer] injury won't stop him playing - clearly at the moment he's a big risk." Mame Diouf is also managing a knee problem but the versatile Senegalese star is expected to feature.

Huddersfield Town could potentially be without all three of their top forward for Saturday's trip to Burnley.

Town will definitely be without leading scorer Steve Mounie, who remains sidelined after missing the last two matches with a heel problem, and long-term absentee Collin Quaner (knee) for this weekend's trip to Turf Moor. The absence of Mounie would normally result in a start for Laurent Depoitre, who scored on his full debut last weekend, but manager Steve Wagner revealed the Belgian is a doubt with a minor muscle strain. If Depoitre is ruled out, Elias Kachunga could move from his wide right position to fill the Number 9 role. Wagner's other alternatives would be Abdelhamid Sabiri, who started and assisted from the Number 10 role against Leicester City, or winger Ravij van La Parra.

Everton will have to wait a little bit longer than expected for the return of Seamus Coleman and Yannick Bolasie.

The duo has missed much of the past year recovering from long-term injuries, and while the club is reluctant to put a timeframe on their respective returns, manager Ronald Koeman confirmed that they are not expected back until November. "I think it will be November, instead of October. They are both working hard, going in the right direction but it's long-term injuries. Seamus is out a long time, but they are doing well, going well on their schedule to come back but it's not up to me, we expect them back in full training in November."

Watford will breath a temporary sigh of relief after news this week that Younes Kaboul doesn't require surgery.

The former Spurs and Sunderland defender missed last weekend's match with Manchester City after suffering a hamstring injury against Southampton in Gameweek 4. While initially thought to be serious, doctors revealed that Kaboul will not require surgery, said the club in a statement: "Younès has now had his follow-up ultrasound scan with a specialist that has determined that surgery is not required for his rehabilitation. His rehab work, which will be extensive, has already begun with us at the training ground."

Manchester City confirmed that midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has avoided another serious injury after Tuesday's scare.

Said the club in a statement: "It is too early at this stage to give an exact time-frame on his absence but he is expected to be back on the training field in the coming days."The German international was subbed off before the hour mark in his first start since last December in the club's League Cup win against West Brom. Gundogan has missed the last nine months with a knee injury before returning over the weekend, but concerns were alleviated after scans revealed he only suffered a minor sprain.

Pedro Obiang was rested for Tuesday's 3-0 Carabao Cup win over Bolton but won't be available for Saturday's Premier League clash against Tottenham.

Manager Slaven Bilic revealed in his pre-match press conference that Obiang picked up an injury at West Brom last weekend and won't be fit to face Spurs. However, Bilic insisted that the Spanish midfielder's injury wasn't serious and added he could be back in contention for the game against Swansea City next Saturday. The absence of Obiang should see Cheikhou Kouyate and skipper Mark Noble, who made his return from a knee knock in the midweek cup win, resume their partnership in central midfield for the crucial clash at the London Stadium. Meanwhile, Saturday will come too soon for the return of James Collins (ankle) and Manuel Lanzini (hamstring).

Chelsea have announced they have agreed terms with Atletico Madrid for the transfer of Diego Costa, who will complete the move in January when the La Liga club's transfer ban comes to an end.

The 28-year-old has finally gotten his move back to Atletico, where he spent four years before joining Chelsea in July 2014 after Chelsea activated his £32m buy-out clause. The Spain international scored 58 goals in 120 appearances during his stay at Stamford Bridge and played a integral role in two Premier League titles. But despite scoring 20 goals in 35 league appearances last season as Chelsea cruised to the Premier League title, Costa was deemed expendable by manager Antonio Conte in the summer following multiple spats during the campaign. A statement on Chelsea's website said: "Chelsea Football Club has today agreed terms with Atletico Madrid for the transfer of Diego Costa. The transfer will be subject to the agreement of personal terms and a medical."

Calum Chambers came off at halftime of Arsenal's Carabao Cup win over Doncaster Rovers with a recurrence of his hip injury. Arsene Wenger indicated that he would be out through the October international break.

Chambers was just breaking back into the line-up after sitting out the early season with a hip issue as well as associated fitness issues associated with the hip injury. Chambers looked solid against lower division opposition in the first half yesterday but will apparently have to wait until mid-October to continue his quest to reestablish himself in the first team where a center back role seems to be available next to Laurent Koscielny and Shkodran Mustafi.

Mesut Ozil was not used in either of Arsenal's past two matches due to a "minor knee inflammation" and Arsene Wenger moved to affirm his status as healthy and available for training and the West Brom match at the weekend.

Mesut Ozil has long been a polarizing figure at Arsenal. Two seasons ago his seeming lack of effort and grit were balanced by a near-record assist-making pace. Last season his production was down significantly but the effort/body language were no better leading many to call for a sale/replacement. This season has started even more poorly for the German international with things getting bad enough that Arsene Wenger hold out his most creative player with a "minor knee inflammation" for the club's match against defending champions Chelsea. It seems like something that most players would have fought through. It sounds like Ozil should be back for West Brom on Monday but there is at least a slight doubt that lingers.

Marcus Rashford (2), Jesse Lingard, and Anthony Martial all got their names on the scoresheet as Manchester United eased past Burton Albion in the Carabao Cup 3rd Round.

Only Rashford and Juan Mata remained from the team which started against Everton on Saturday, with Romero and Carrick making their season bows. Rashford put United ahead after Carrick's driven pass along the floor was spun into the path of Rashford by Jesse Lingard. The young England international provided a composed chipped finish to beat Ripley. He had his brace before the 20th minute, utilising the momentum created by spinning his marker to drive a shot in from 20 yards. United's third followed soon after on 36' when Lingard's heavily deflected effort found its way into the Burton net. Luke Shaw made his first appearance of the season off the bench in the second-half and he showed plenty of attacking intent. As did Anthony Martial who had been a thorn in Burton's side all evening. The Frenchman took his goal well in the second half but could have had three. Burton got a late consolation in injury time thanks to sub GK Pereira dropping the ball.
