Deadline day arrival Harry Arter will not feature for Cardiff City on Saturday as the return to the Premier League.

Arter could see a lot of usage over the course of the season as one of the Bluebirds' few experienced Premier League campaigners. He won't get a chance to show off what he can bring in Week 1 due to the lateness of his arrival but he will be one to watch beyond that as Neil Warnock will have to find some attacking impetus somewhere and Arter could be leaned on more heavily than he has been in previous Premier League seasons.

Huddersfield Town will be without Mathias 'Zanka' Jorgensen for Sunday's clash with Manchester City after the ever-present centre-back picked up a muscular injury in training.

Huddersfield boss David Wagner confirmed that the injury is "not very serious" and hopes Zanka will be able to return for GW3. But with the Dane unavailable for the trip to Manchester, Wagner must set up his defence without one of his mainstays. Jon Gorenc Stankovic could slot in alongside Christopher Schindler and Terence Kongolo if Wagner uses a five-at-the-back system. Alternatively, we could see the return of a traditional back four. Defensive midfielder Jonathan Hogg is also dealing with a hip problem and faces a late fitness test. Put simply; fantasy managers should avoid the Town defence this weekend.

Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas will miss Saturday's match against his former club Arsenal.

The Spanish midfielder has not featured since the Community Shield and remains unavailable for the weekend visit of Arsenal to Stamford Bridge. However, Maurizio Sarri hopes Fabregas will be able to return to training next week despite describing the problem as a minor, but strange, injury. "[It's] nothing serious, but he has a very unusual injury," said Sarri. "He has a pain, not in the knee, [but] near the knee." The Blues boss also noted that Real Madrid loanee Mateo Kovacic is unlikely to start but could feature off the bench. Ross Barkley got the nod against Huddersfield Town on Saturday and should continue starting until Fabregas and Kovacic are fully fit. Jorginho and N'Golo Kante will round out the midfield trio.

Adama Traore sat out the Week 1 draw with Everton but will be available to participate as Nuno Espirito Santo sees fit in Week 2 against Leicester City.

The recent arrival from Middlesbrough wasn't ready to take part in Wolves' return to the Premier League last weekend but will be ready to participate this time around. It will be fascinating to see who he displaces as Diogo Jota, Raul Jiminez, and Helder Costa are all strong options. Costa seems the most likely to give way since both players typically play on the right side of a three-man attack. Costa does have some versatility, though, and Espirito Santo could elect to move him to the left at the expense of Jota.

Leander Dendoncker is still not ready to make his Wolves debut after arriving on deadline day.

The Belgian center back/holding midfielder is not yet ready to take part for Wolves according to Nuno Espirito Santo in his press conference ahead of the club's Week 2 match at the King Power Stadium. Not much was provided by way of detail on his progress toward featuring with his new side so it isn't clear whether Dendoncker will participate as soon as Week 3 or whether we will have to wait a while to see him.

Harry Arter is likely to make his Cardiff City debut against Newcastle United this Saturday after being ineligible to play against his parent club Bournemouth in Week 1.

The Bluebirds need an injection going forward if they have any hope of surviving the drop. Yes, it is early to make season-long predictions but a quick look at the squad reveals a decided lack of goals even at the Championship level, let alone the Premier League. Harry Arter is certainly not a star but every little bit of Premier League experience will help the cause.

José Mourinho is bidding to sweep a summer of turmoil and negative messages from Paul Pogba under the carpet, claiming that he "couldn't be happier" with the World Cup winner.

The 25 year-old's relationship with his manager has never seemed right, with Pogba hinting at his dissatisfaction at the club in the wake of the 2-1 win over Leicester last Friday. Mourinho said: "He's playing well, he does for the fans, he does for the team and that's what I want. I cannot demand more from him, I cannot ask more from him." That's why Mou gave him a surprise start on Friday and the captain's armband. He will lead United out at the AMEX in GW2 too. It's clear that all is not well at Old Trafford, but if Pogba can keep performing in spite of the clouds surrounding him, then it will be a huge aid to Man Utd's cause.

Romelu Lukaku is in with a chance of starting for Man Utd on Sunday afternoon after coming off the bench in the season opener at Old Trafford last Friday.

Jesse Lingard, Nemanja Matic and Antonio Valencia are all back in training following rest and injuries, though none of the trio will be ready to take to the field this weekend. Paul Pogba will captain the side again in Valencia's absence.

Manchester United captain Antonio Valencia is back in training after overcoming a calf injury sustained in preseason.

However, Valencia will not feature for United in Gameweek 2 against Brighton at the AMEX. Paul Pogba will captain United again in the Ecuadorian's absence, with Matteo Darmian presumably deputising at right-back again for the Red Devils. Valencia could regain his place in the starting XI in GW3. Incidentally, José Mourinho has confirmed that Darmian will not be leaving the club this summer. United left the door open for a move, but ultimately the player is staying put. Mourinho expressed his satisfaction at retaining the Italian's services.

Brighton captain Bruno Saltor will miss Sunday's visit of Manchester United to the AMEX owing to a hamstring injury suffered in the 2-0 loss to Watford in GW1.

However, Chris Hughton has confirmed that the injury is nowhere near as bad as was initially feared. He may return to training before GW3. Florin Andone and Jose Izquierdo are also close to a recovery but will not be ready in time for Sunday. Summer signing Martin Montoya should make his debut for the Seagulls at right-back against the Red Devils. After a very disappointing first game of the season, it wouldn't be a shock to see Yves Bissouma and Alireza Jahanbakhsh, both summer signings who debuted off the bench in GW1, make the starting 11 too.

Southampton's summer signing Mohamed Elyounoussi is unlikely to feature for the club at Goodison Park this weekend.

After coming off the bench in the 0-0 draw with Burnley on the opening day of the season, he felt a tightness in his hamstring. The niggle may be enough to rule him out. Fellow new-arrival Stuart Armstrong has received better news after limping off at St. Mary's with Mark Hughes declaring that "he looks OK and has trained today so [Hughes] don’t anticipate [Armstrong] missing out."

After missing a penalty against Cardiff in Gameweek 1, Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson is adamant that he won't be afraid to take one next time the Cherries earn one.

Many Fantasy Football managers may have presumed that the Englishman would be stripped of penalty duties after Etheridge denied him, but Wilson's language seems to suggest that he hopes to remain in situ as Bournemouth's main man for spot-kicks. He told the Daily Echo: "I will be putting up my hand and will be the first one there. I never shy away. The sort of person I am, I love scoring goals and making sure I can affect things. I am a confident person so there is no way I will be stepping back next time."
