Adel Taarabt is still working on his fitness, according to manager Martin Jol, but could play some role against Leicester today in Fulham's League Cup tie.

It's hard to believe that three months after coming to Fulham on loan he's still out of shape. Fulham could use Taarabt's guile and unpredictability on the pitch and hopefully today's Cup match is a big step towards his return to the first team.

A hip injury threatens to rule Daniel Sturridge out for the remainder of the season after Brendan Rodgers admitted he was "unsure" when the striker would return.

Sturridge has battled a number of injury related problems throughout this campaign [calf / thigh / hip] restricting the England international to just 7 league starts and his absence has been reflected in his sides indifferent season. Missing a striker to deliver at the "top level every week" Rodgers will need to consider his options if he hopes to challenge for the Premier League title. Mario Balotelli, Fabio Borini and Rickie Lambert look surplus to requirements while striking duties have fallen to Raheem Sterling with varying degrees of success. Divock Origi will of course return after his season long loan deal at Lille but the young striker has struggled in Ligue 1 and was recently voted the leagues most overrated player.

Peter Odemwingie is coming to the end of his recovery from an ACL injury and could be ready for the bench as soon as Week 34.

This is by no means a viable fantasy option for Week 34 but if Odemwingie plays even a bit part against Sunderland then he could be in line for a more significant role over the last couple of weeks of the season. With little to achieve over the final five matches, giving Odemwingie a little playing time to help push his recovering along before the summer could actually be pretty high on Mark Hughes' agenda. Odemwingie has had some big fantasy days so he could represent an interesting option in Weeks 37 and 38 as one of the few mid-table players with something to play for.

Roberto Martinez has stated that Everton midfielder Steven Pienaar is "very unlikely" to make the squad for their match against Manchester United on Sunday.

It looks like one more week for the South African international. Kevin Mirallas returned and scored for the Toffees last weekend, so Martinez has two in-form wide men to name to his XI with Aaron Lennon also playing well. Martinez also went on to confirm that Romelu Lukaku will be ready to go, much to the dismay of Red Devil fans.

Leon Osman's status for the weekend is still in the air but Roberto Martinez has revealed that the veteran has shown progress in his recovery.

Martinez will not make a determination on Osman's availability until matchday on Sunday, so for fantasy purposes, he needs to be ruled out. His absence increases the likelihood of a start for Ross Barkley. James McCarthy should be ready to partner Gareth Barry in midfield, with Aaron Lennon and Kevin Mirallas out wide. This could be a tough test for Manchester United.

When asked about the status of Daniel Sturridge, Brendan Rodgers admitted he was unsure when the striker would be ready, but has ruled him out for Liverpool's trip to The Hawthorns tomorrow.

Sturridge would have been in the majority of fantasy teams this weekend had he been healthy, but despite the Reds' double gameweek, there won't be any recommended plays at the forward position from their club. Those who play in leagues where you already own him, at least there is some hope that he could play a part in midweek when Liverpool face Hull. Mamadou Sakho and Lucas Leiva are unavailable the West Brom match as well.

Liverpool received a fitness boost this week with the return of Adam Lallana to training, though there is still a doubt as to whether he will make the squad for the trip to West Bromwich Albion tomorrow.

It has been an injury-plagued first season for Lallana at Anfield, but he appears to be on the verge of returning from his latest setback, a groin strain. He cannot be looked at from a fantasy perspective for the weekend but may offer something for investors in the final weeks of the season.

Out of action since last August, Siem De Jong has been deemed ready to make the squad by John Carver as Newcastle United get set to host Swansea City tomorrow.

De Jong's health has directly mirrored Newcastle's play this season - both are ready to be forgotten about as soon as possible. One of the key acquisitions by the Magpies last summer, he has played a total of 99 minutes on the season. He does have a level of pedigree though that should have fantasy managers paying attention. He just may provide the necessary variable to make Newcastle a competitive force again and of course, with an eight month layoff, his price is nice and cheap.

Mohamed Diame suffered a bit of a setback in his recovery this week with the club reporting that his knee was sore after training.

With relegation a real possibility, there is no room in Steve Bruce's starting eleven for a player who might have to be substituted early if his sore knee doesn't react well to playing. Diame hasn't been effective off the bench since his return to the squad and Bruce would have to be extremely desperate to accelerate the player's return given the renewed concerns. Fantasy managers should avoid Diame in all formats for Week 34 for sure and likely for the balance of the season.

Curtis Davies remains out of action for Hull City in Week 34 with a thigh muscle injury.

Hull City have a mini-crisis at the back with Curtis Davies definitely out for Week 34 and Alex Bruce doubtful as he struggles with a badly broken nose. Hull City already face a tough task in Week 34 as they travel to in-form Crystal Palace (last week's loss to West Brom not withstanding). Michael Dawson and James Chester are the likely starters but if Bruce isn't able to go then Hull City will be hard pressed to play with three central defenders as they frequently have this season. Given the match-up and Hull City's recent form, none of Hull City's central defenders is really worth starting this weekend if you can avoid it.

Alex Bruce has a severely broken nose that has him at risk of missing Hull City's trip to Selhurst Park in Week 34.

A nose that looks like it has been through a sausage grinder seems like something of a family birthright in the Bruce family and Alex is keeping up the family tradition after suffering a severely broken nose. The injury may keep him out of Hull City's Week 34 trip to Selhurst Park. The uncertainty makes Bruce even less desirable as a fantasy option and he wasn't going to be in strong demand anyway given the match-up and Hull City's recent form.

Andrew Robertson has been in and out of the starting line-up in 2015 but will miss Week 34 for sure with an injured ankle.

Andrew Robertson was a revelation in the early stages of the Premier League season. He was one of newcomers of the first half of the season outside of the biggest of foreign buys. His fortunes have fades somewhat as Robbie Brady and he have split time since Brady's return to health. Robertson has also seen his form dip when he has gotten chances to play. Robertson will miss out on Week 34 and may have to work on his fitness to play more consistently next season.
