Bayern Munich reveal Jerome Boateng is not "unsellable" and the Bundesliga Champions are prepared to listen to "important" offers for the centre-back.

Manchester United have been monitoring the situation closely, and according to CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Boateng could leave at the right price. The 29-year-old is said to be one of several backline targets as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his defensive options. Victor Lindelof has struggled since arriving at the club while Eric Bailly is fast becoming an injury liability. Despite returning from a ruptured ACL in December, Marcos Rojo was unable to nail down regular game time. With Daley Blind and Matteo Darmian expected to leave, the United boss is considering other options and the Germany international appears to fit the bill. Boateng spent a season at local-rivals City back in 2011 before moving to Munich, but in a recent interview with Socrates magazine, he hinted that he might leave: "I've experienced everything at FC Bayern. Do I, time and time again, want to prove myself at the same club with the same pre-conditions?"

Club-captain Tommy Smith has been ruled out until January after a scan confirmed he suffered a hamstring tear at the Emirates.

The Terriers put up a spirited performance before their resolve was finally broken with last than ten minutes remaining. David Wagner praised his side’s fight and admitted he was: "More than excited about the next games that we have in front of us." However, Huddersfield could be without up-to four of his starters from week 16 following a bruising encounter. Following on swiftly from the news that play maker Aaron Mooy will not feature again until February due to a knee ligament injury - Philip Billing could return to the side after his ban – right back Smith looks set to miss between 4-6 weeks with a muscular strain. The injury could see Wagner switch to a 3-5-2 formation with Florent Hadergjonaj coming in as a wing-back. Terence Kongolo (knee) and Jonathan Hogg (groin) are also being monitored day-to-day after picking up knocks last time out.

Laurent Koscielny will make his first senior start in more than seven months following his recovery from a ruptured Achilles tendon.

The Frenchman’s timely return will be welcomed by boss Unai Emery after seeing his defensive options decimated in recent games. Rob Holding is expected to miss up-to 9 months after suffering a serious knee ligament injury at Old Trafford while Shkodran Mustafi is struggling to shake off a niggling hamstring complaint. The German defender must also serve a one-match after accumulating five yellow cards. Dinos Mavropanos (groin) has been sidelined since August, although it is hoped that he could be back before the end of December. Arsenal travel to Southampton this weekend and with Stefan Lichtsteiner and Nacho Monreal the only fully fit, and experienced central defenders, Koscielny needs game time to improve sharpness. "We are going to decide after tomorrow’s match," Emery said on selecting his side for Sunday. "As it’s [Koscielny’s] first match with us, we are going to look also if he can play 90 minutes or less."

Liverpool's progression to the knockout phase of the Champions League came at a cost on Tuesday following injuries key players.

Trent Alexander-Arnold is being assessed after suffering a foot injury and the club are waiting on the results of his scan. However, the news on defensive team-mate Joel Matip, who could miss up-to nine games, comes as a blow and leaves the Reds defence looking a little stretched heading into a busy fixture period. Only last week Joe Gomez (lower leg fracture) was ruled out until early 2019 and now Matip will join him in the treatment room after tests confirm he suffered a broken collarbone. The defender fell awkwardly during the closing stages of the win over Napoli although it was initially thought that the problem was not serious. "Nobody told me anything about [Joel’s] shoulder, so hopefully that’s a good sign," revealed Jurgen Klopp post-match. However, Matip was taken to hospital, and a further assessment deemed an operation is required. Early indications suggest the centre-back is facing a spell of up to six weeks out.

Liverpool will have to check on the status of Joel Matip and Trent Alexander-Arnold after leaving with injuries on Tuesday.

Liverpool put together a valiant effort in a 1-0 win against Napoli to advance to the Champions League knockout stages on Tuesday with Mohamed Salah scoring the winning goal. But Trent Alexander-Arnold left the game in the finals minutes with a knock while James Milner came off with a cramp. Meanwhile, manager Jurgen Klopp confirmed that defender Joel Matip is undergoing scans on a shoulder injury that could thin the club's defensive ranks even further. "Trent got a knock on his foot, we are not sure about what exactly it is. It is painful," Klopp said. "Millie [Milner] had cramps - I hope it was only cramp. That was it, I don't know anything else."

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola confirmed that Sergio Aguero has a chance to be fit for the coming weekend.

The star forward missed all three Premier League games last week due to a muscle injury as Gabirel Jesus filled in but failed to score a goal. While Aguero has been ruled out of the club's final Champions League group stage match on Wednesday with Hoffenheim, Aguero is pushing to be available to face Everton this weekend. "Silva not able, Kevin not able, Danilo not able, Sergio isn't ready," Guardiola said in the club's pre-match press conference. "[Silva will be out for] a few weeks. Last game he was substituted, not too big but he stops for a few weeks. Maybe he [Aguero] has a chance for the weekend."

Pep Guardiola confirms David Silva will be sidelined for a "few weeks" after tests confirm the Spanish star suffered a hamstring strain during the loss at Stamford Bridge.

The 32-year-old has been in exemplary form this season, but this setback threatens to keep him of the City line-up until the turn of the year. In a rare off day, Silva struggled to get to grips with the game on Saturday as Chelsea inflicted the Citizens first league defeat of the season. Silva was replaced on 68 minutes indicating a problem with his right hamstring, but speaking after the game, team-mate Phil Foden offered some hope by suggesting Silva had said that the muscle was "tight" and nothing too serious. However, subsequent tests have revealed the injury is a little worse than initially thought. "In the last game he was subbed," said Pep ahead of the Champions League. "It was a muscular problem but he'll be stopped for a few days, a few weeks."

Eddie Howe is hopeful of having Callum Wilson back amongst the ranks this weekend despite the Bournemouth boss admitting his top scorer has a "grade one hamstring injury."

The England international has proved to be this season’s go-to budget option in attack - over 39 per cent FPL ownership - and Wilson hasn’t disappointed, delivering a massive 92-pts for a measly £6m starting price. Of course, his 8-goals and eight assists from 15 appearances have resulted in a hefty hike, but £7m for an attacker who sits just behind Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang overall is an absolute steal. So, his absence in the early kick-off hit a lot of managers hard. There had been no indication prior and no mention during Fridays pre-match press conference. Rumours began to circulate around 30 minutes before the deadline, chatter which proved to be well-placed once the team news was confirmed. "I don't think his injury is going to be long-term. He's got a grade one hamstring injury, so we'll try to get him fit for Wolves," Howe confirmed post-match.

There are growing concerns in Australia that Huddersfield Town star Aaron Mooy could miss the Asian Cup after picking up a knee injury during the 1-0 loss at Arsenal.

Although there has been official update, reports from the southern hemisphere say that Mooy suffered a medial ligament injury at the Emirates which puts his involvement in the tournament, beginning on 6 January, in doubt. The availability of the 28-year-old could be pivotal to Huddersfield’s survival hopes and with an initial timeline of six weeks suggested, Mooy could miss up-to ten Premier League matches. David Wagner will also carry out assessments on three other players, two of whom – Tom Smith and Jonathan Hogg – were forced off with serious looking muscular injuries. The third, Terence Kongolo is hopefully just suffering from a knock. The Terriers welcome Philip Billing back into the squad for the game with Newcastle United on Saturday, but Steve Mounie [suspended] and Abdelhamid Sabiri [shoulder] will definitely miss the game.

Lucas Digne scored his first Everton goal in second half stoppage time to draw Everton level with Watford to close out Week 16.

It looked like Ben Foster's save of Gylfi Sigurdsson's penalty was going to prove to be the difference between Macro Silva's old side and his new one. One of Silva's summer signings came to the rescue though as former Barcelona man Lucas Digne scored on a set piece deep into stoppage time. The goal drew Everton even and that final scoreline flattered Everton slightly after they had been outplayed by the visitors for much of the match.

Abdoulaye Doucoure scored again but Watford couldn't quite close out a win against former manager Marco Silva and had to settle for a 2-2 draw.

After going his first fourteen Premier League matches of the season without scoring, it has been two in two matches for the Watford central midfielder. Last season was absent significant goal or goalless streaks as Doucoure took a massive leap forward from afterthought to certain starter. His slow start to the season likely had fantasy managers bailing out but his revival should have him in consideration as a bench player with only Chelsea on Boxing Day presenting daunting opposition for Javi Gracia's side over the next month and a half.
