Ainsley Maitland-Niles will almost certainly start for Arsenal as they kick off their Premier League season against defending champions Manchester City on Sunday.

With Sead Kolasinac and Nacho Monreal both out injured, Maitland-Niles will draw the assignment to attempt to slow down whichever of Manchester City's prolific wingers start for Pep Guardiola's men. Maitland-Niles' athleticism is probably a solid match for the speed of Sterling, Sane, and Mahrez but not being a natural left back his technique and positioning could provide City with a massive opportunity. Look for Pep's men to attack down their right side and test the Arsenal youngster early and often on Sunday.

At least for the day, Manchester City will be back atop the Premier League table after a 3-1 win over Everton.

It was Gabriel Jesus who stole the show with two goals on either side of half-time, breaking his dubious goalless streak with the opener in the 22nd minute when he coolly finished from a difficult angle for his first Premier League goal since August. Leroy Sane drew up quite a connection with the Brazilian forward by assisting on both goals, including a brilliant chipped pass in the 50th minute that led to a powerful header from Gabriel Jesus. After Everton brought one back in the 65th, Raheem Sterling came off the bench for Sane and recorded only his second-career headed goal in the Premier League just minutes later for a 69th-minute winner. And there's more good news for City as Kevin De Bruyne returned from injury to feature as a second-half sub while Sergio Aguero also made the bench.

Despite looking up to the challenge, Everton were left to struggle at the Etihad in a 3-1 loss to Manchester City.

The Toffees kept up with the reigning Premier League champions with nine shots to their 13, but were far too wasteful to take points off the leaders with only two shots on goal. Even with Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling on the bench, Manchester City pulled away with a 2-0 lead by the 50th minute thanks to two goals from Gabriel Jesus where the Brazilian found himself wide open inside the penalty area. But Everton had a few minutes of hope in the 65th when Lucas Digne launched a cross that found Dominic Calvert-Lewin for a header that cut the lead in half. But in the 66th minute Sterling entered and scored the dagger just three minutes later to leave Everton behind.

Stephan Lichtsteiner has proven a valuable reserve for Arsenal and could feature in a third position on Sunday with Arsenal facing a defensive crisis.

The Gunners brought Stephan Lichtsteiner in with the idea that Hector Bellerin could use an experienced deputy/tutor. Lichtsteiner fit the bill coming over from perennial winners Juventus. Unai Emery has gotten more out of his summer signing than expected with the Swiss international deputizing at right back when all three of Nacho Monreal, Sead Kolasinac, and Ainsley Maitland-Niles have been unavailable. With a similar issue at center back, Lichtsteiner seems like the odds-on favorite to get a spot start opposite Laurent Koscielny.

Andre Gray will miss the visit of Cardiff City on Saturday with a calf injury leaving Isaac Success and Troy Deeney the burden of scoring the goals.

Gray has been a significant disappointment since arriving at Vicarage Road and looks to have solidified his status as a high end Championship forward who isn't quite good enough to do the business regularly in the Premier League. Gray hasn't started a match in the Premier League since October 6th so his absence shouldn't be too much of a problem for Javi Gracia. Given the upcoming fixture schedule, he will hope to be back soon to help fill in the minutes as the matches come fast and furious.

Jonny has returned to training for Wolves and could be set to feature in Week 17 against Bournemouth.

This is certainly no guarantee that the Spain international is ready to return but it is worth noting because it puts both Jonny and his deputy, Ruben Vinagre, in question for Week 17. Given the extent to which Wolves, with or without Jonny, have conceded fantasy points to opposing midfielders and the excellent record for scoring fantasy points that we've seen from Bournemouth's midfield this season, this probably isn't the weekend to take a risk on a Wolves defender.

Johann Berg Gudmundsson, along with teammate Steven Defour, has been quoted by Sean Dyche as "touch and go" for the weekend trip to Tottenham.

Gudmundsson was forced off just after 70 minutes last weekend while Defour has missed the last two matches entirely. Defour had missed the first eight games of the season through injury, and given comparable options on hand for Dyche in central midfield, would figure to be an outside chance of starting. Gudmundsson, on the other hand, has been vital to the cause so Dyche may be more inclined to play the Icelandic international in a 50/50 call. It is not a matchup that has much fantasy promise for any of the Clarets.

Leicester City forward Jamie Vardy is set to return this weekend when the Foxes head to Selhurst Park.

The Leicester City talisman has not featured in the club's last two matches due to a groin injury, although he was enjoying great form with a goal in each of his previous two prior to the injury. But Claude Puel's side could only manage one goal without Vardy, who has been linked to a winter move to Chelsea. Meanwhile, Puel said that Ben Chilwell looks to be a doubt due to a knee injury. "We will see tomorrow about Ben Chilwell," the manager said. "He felt a pain in his knee, so we will see this week whether he can play. Jamie Vardy came back with the squad this morning (Thursday) and I think he will be in the squad this weekend. Harry Maguire was in the squad for the last game [against Tottenham Hotspur]."

Manchester City defender John Stones will be assessed after coming away with a knee injury on Wednesday.

The versatile defender started three games in the course of the last week but was taken off at half-time in the club's Champions League group stage finale against Hoffenheim. While manager Pep Guardiola said he doesn't expect the injury to be serious, the defending champions' injury list grows bigger with Fernandinho, Danilo and David Silva sustaining injuries this week. "John can play [at right back] because he did it against Shakhtar. He can do it but he didn't feel comfortable with his knee. It is not a big issue but he didn't feel comfortable so Kyle started to warm up immediately and we made the change at half-time. John Stones is not a full-back but I admire and appreciate the effort to try to do that."

Mesut Ozil and Laurent Koscielny have both returned to the starting line-up for Arsenal in their final group stage match in the Europa League on Thursday.

Unai Emery started what appeared to be a for more potent line-up than needed for a relatively meaningless Europa League match. Ozil is returning from back spasms and Koscielny is returning from an Achilles tear. With the Gunners already through to the knock-out stages, the inclusion of the duo is probably best described as adding sharpness ahead of the trip to Southampton on Sunday. Koscielny's ongoing health will be particularly important as Arsenal's center back situation is critical with Rob Holding definitely out, Shkodran Mustafi struggling with a hamstring injury, and Sokratis suspended.

Manchester City have committed fully to Academy product Phil Foden by rewarding him with a five-and-a-half-year contract.

With already three trophies under his belt, Foden is not committed to the Sky Blues through the summer of 2024. The 18-year-old has already made eight Premier League appearances this season, all off the bench, become a Pep Guardiola favorite in no time. Said sporting director Txiki Begiristain: "We are delighted to have secured Phil for the next five-and-a-half years. He is an outstanding talent and he is Manchester City born and bred, so this is where he wants to play his football. Under Pep and with the players we have here around him, he is in the best place possible to develop as a player."

Mesut Ozil has returned to training and is in contention to face Southampton on Sunday.

Rumors of the Arsenal creative midfielder's video gaming habits have grown to the extent of blaming his injury or at least aggravation of it on the game Fortnight. Ozil's account has been credited with thousands of hours of play and a physio has said it could lead to back issues. Consider Ozil questionable for the weekend.
