Eden Hazard scored from the penalty spot in the dying moments of the match to snatch a point from the jaws of defeat as Chelsea's battle with West Brom concluded in a 2-2 draw.

This game could have easily been 0-3 for West Brom, but Chelsea found a way to sneak a goal out of the final seconds of each half to get the draw. Hazard delivered a powerful shot on target late in the first half that Baggie keeper Boaz Myhill was able to deflect, but teammate Liam Ridgewell inexcusably failed to clear the ball and Samuel Eto'o was there to poach one. Hazard then scored the late equalizer from the penalty spot, an honor usually reserved for Frank Lampard, but the veteran had already been subbed off earlier. Hazard is a fantasy weapon hampered by his forward classification in the Yahoo game. However, if he hits a run of form, he may be worth consideration.

West Ham came through a bruising 120 minutes of football this week to guarantee their place in the fifth round of the FA Cup at the expense of Liverpool. However, the win came at a cost having picked up a number of injuries on the night.

Winston Reid and Joey O'Brien look set for a spell on the sidelines after the pair were forced off with hamstring related problems. A scan on Thursday will confirm the extent of the damage. Sam Byram is likely to come in at right-back while Angelo Ogbonna is poised for a recall. Slaven Bilic confirms James Tomkins (calf) "is out for five weeks" but Enner Valencia plus one / two others who suffered knocks "will be okay." Cheikhou Kouyate "is doing well" but because of the concussion guidelines the West Ham midfielder will not available for the trip to Carrow Road. Alex Song is back while Manuel Lanzini will re-join the group on Sunday. Diafra Sakho though, will be slightly longer "maybe five days after."

Roberto Martinez will make a late decision on Oumar Niasse who has been granted international clearance following his arrival from Russian side Lokomotiv Moscow on deadline day.

The attacking midfielder has been working on his fitness and Martinez remains hopeful that Niasse will start training with the team on Friday in order to make a decision on his involvement. The Toffees boss will also run the rule over Tim Howard (knee) and John Stones (hamstring) who have stepped up there rehab for past three-days. They "should" be with the first team from today. Saturday will be too early for Mo Besic though, however, the midfielder is close. He should be ready for the FA Cup next weekend.

Alan Pardew confirmed that this weekend's match will come too soo for Yannick Bolasie and Bakary Sako, but the duo is in line to return to training next week.

Bolasie has missed the past six weeks with a leg injury and the Crystal Palace attack has struggled mightily in his absence with only three goals and no wins since Boxing Day. Upon his return, Bolasie could be a shrewd fantasy pickup considering his stellar second-half to last season. Sako is set to join him in full training next week as he recovers from a hamstring injury that has kept him out for a month. The former Wolves forward aggravated the injury upon his initial return after missing a month and has only made one appearance in the past two months.

Joe Ledley will face a late fitness test but Jason Puncheon has been sidelined for a "long period" and the Palace winger will not be available until March at the earliest.

However, there was better news for the Eagles. Dwight Gayle has trained this week and Alan Pardew remains "hopeful" that the striker will be available for the visit of Watford. Connor Wickham has be added to the squad after completing his ban for elbowing Jan Vertonghen. Bakary Sako and Yannick Bolasie are running, both "should be back to face Tottenham in the FA Cup" next weekend. James McArthur "could" play again this season after a specialist consultation confirmed his ankle ligament injury would not require surgery: "It will heal itself," said the surgeon.

Ki Sung-Yueng is fit and available for selection according to Swansea City's official website, as the midfielder has successfully recovered from a concussion sustained last weekend.

Ki took a kick to the head two weekends ago from Stephane Sessegnon, causing him to miss the match against Palace this past weekend. Alberto Paloschi was given his starting debut against the Eagles, but did not have too much of an impact. It will be a bit of a guessing game to call what Francesco Guidolin plans to do this weekend against Southampton. He could put Ki back in place of Paloschi or someone else may drop out. Given the way the Saints defense are playing right now, no Swans are worth considering for fantasy purposes in attack outside of Gylfi Sigurdsson and Andre Ayew.

Liverpool may have lost their FA Cup replay against West Ham yesterday but they did welcome Daniel Sturridge back to the pitch after he came in for Philippe Coutinho in the 59th minute.

Sturridge didn't do a great deal in his return registering three shots but failing to hit the target with any of them. Still, with Roberto Firmino playing out of position as a target forward for much of the past two months, the return of Sturridge could signal a boost to the Liverpool attack that would look much better with a healthy Sturridge supported by Firmino and an also-returning Coutinho. Of course we must take any "Sturridge is back" talk with a massive grain of salt since his recent history tells us that he's more likely to be out again soon with another injury than making a protracted run of starts.

Phillipe Coutinho marked his return from a hamstring injury by getting a start in the FA Cup replay against West Ham United.

Coutinho had been out of action for just over a month with a hamstring injury but was handed a start straight away upon his return. Liverpool lost the match in the final moments against the Hammers, but it was the Brazilian playmaker who equalized the affair shortly after the second half commenced, driving a free kick under the West Ham wall and into the net. His return will be welcome news to fantasy owners in draft leagues and he may be available at a discount in weekly salary leagues due to his prolonged absence, but he is not a recommended pickup in the FPL game. For one, the Reds have a blank immediately following the Week 26 round this weekend, not to mention he can be frustratingly streaky. Take away the four goals he scored in a three week span from gameweeks 11-13, he has scored just once on the season and that was opening day.

Steven Caulker failed a late fitness test for Liverpool ahead of their FA Cup replay with West Ham United and was kept out of the squad on matchday with a back problem.

Brought in on loan last month from Queens Park Rangers, Caulker was thought to be able to assist Jurgen Klopp with the injuries he has at the center back position. Now Caulker joins the list with Martin Skrtel, who is certain to miss at least a couple more weeks, and Dejan Lovren, who is looking to return from a leg cramp that saw him leave just 11 minutes into the Reds draw against Sunderland in Week 25. Caulker has made just three appearances in league play that have totaled five minutes in pitch time in his return to Anfield, hardly making him any sort of fantasy prospect. It appears Kolo Toure is firmly ahead of him in the pecking order, so we may not even see Caulker make the bench very often when the likes of Skrtel, Lovren and Mamadou Sakho are all fit.

West Ham face an anxious wait to discover the extent of the injuries picked up by a number of their first team stars during Wednesday nights’ last-gasp FA Cup 4th round victory over Liverpool at the Boleyn Ground.

Winston Reid limped off on the hour mark clutching his hamstring while Cheikhou Kouyate followed ten minutes later with suspected concussion after a clash of heads with Liverpool full-back Jon Flanagan. Both are considered doubts for the trip to Carrow Road this weekend. Joey O’Brien picked up a knock and with James Tomkins (calf) already ruled out, Sam Byram is likely to start at right-back against Norwich. James Collins, Andy Carroll and Enner Valencia will also be checked although none are thought to be serious.

According to the London Evening Standard, Chelsea are unlikely to hand new recruit Matt Miazga his debut this season despite the absence of Kurt Zouma.

Many saw the timely arrival of Miazga as the perfect back-up following the loss of the 21-year-old French defender on Sunday to a serious knee injury. However, Chelsea are believed to be reluctant to thrust the former New York Red Bull into the limelight just yet. The US international – who is very much seen as a long term prospect by the club – is expected to ply his trade with the development side initially and won’t be thrown in at the Premier League deep end until next season. Gary Cahill will rekindle his central defensive partnership with John Terry while Branislav Ivanovic could fill in as and when required.

James McArthur is expected to miss the remainder of the season after the Crystal Palace midfielder sustained ankle ligament damage against AFC Bournemouth in game week twenty-four.

Alan Pardew provided an update ahead of last weekends’ trip to Swansea: "I have some disappointing news. McArthur is out for a long time." Before the player himself wrote on Twitter: "Looks like season is over for me with ankle ligaments torn. Just another challenge in my career to make sure I work hard and come back stronger." To compound matters further, the Eagles will also be without Jason Puncheon for around a month after the winger pulled up with a hamstring problem during the same game. On a brighter note, Connor Wickham is available for the visit of Watford this weekend having served his three match ban.
