Tottenham forward Roberto Soldado says he is not totally happy with the performances he has produced since joining the London club in the summer.

Soldado has six goals so far, which isn't a disaster for a striker joining a new league in a different country, but when you break the statistics down he has scored just one goal from open play in the league. It's not just down to the Spaniard though; he's found himself isolated and Tottenham are having problems creating chances in general. Andre Villas-Boas has to work out how to get the best out of the attacking talent in the squad. Trying two strikers could be an option, with Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor both available, while Erik Lamela is due a league start.

Manuel Pellegrini is expecting to 'continue with the same situation' against West Brom, meaning he expects David Silva, Jesus Navas, Matija Nastasic and Yaya Toure to miss out through injury.

The absence of Yaya Toure and Nastasic is no surprise, but the loss of Silva and Navas for a second game in a row is a blow for Pellegrini, as both men had been tipped to return against West Brom. James Milner and Javi Garcia are therefore likely to continue in midfield, with Samir Nasri set for a key attacking role in support of Sergio Aguero and either Edin Dzeko or Alvaro Negrado.

Roberto Martinez will not rule out Phil Jageilka for Everton's clash with Manchester United on Sunday, but he did state the defender's chances were unlikely.

With the way John Stones has performed in his absence, there is no reason for Martinez to push Jagielka at all, so Stones owners should feel relatively safe in their asset. Everton picked up all 21 possible points in the seven games he missed prior to their defeat last weekend to Crystal Palace so it would be hard to justify making changes at the back. Even when Jags is declared fully fit, there's no guarantee he will slot right back in to the XI.

James McCarthy has been declared fit and available for Everton as they get set to host Manchester United on Sunday.

McCarthy made a half hour appearance in Everton's midweek loss to Crystal Palace and came through okay. He will likely return to partnering Gareth Barry in central midfield as the Toffees look to bounce back against a United side that should have Wayne Rooney available.

Chelsea are close to agreeing on a two year contract extension with John Terry.

Chelsea assistant Steve Holland reported that Chelsea are working on giving Terry a new contract and he hopes to have a deal soon within the next two weeks. Terry has had a phenomenal comeback season under Jose Mourinho and he's led Chelsea to 15 clean sheets in his 32 appearances. That is a phenomenal record and he continues to be a good fantasy choice. Age doesn't affect defenders as much as other positions and they can usually compensate for their lack of speed with intelligence and positioning. Expect Terry's form to continue.

Eden Hazard hasn't returned to training yet and has been ruled out for Chelsea's match against Sunderland on Saturday.

Hazard is expected to try and return against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday so continue monitoring his status going forward. If Hazard returns against Atletico in midweek, he is a good bet to play against Liverpool next weekend in what is shaping up to be the game that will decide the Premier League title. In his absence, feel free to use Mohamed Salah this weekend.

Lewis Holtby is ineligible to face Tottenham Hotspurs this weekend as the midfielder is on loan from Spurs.

Holtby has been in good form for Fulham as they look to escape from near certain relegation. Ashkan Dejagah will likely deputize for the German, despite being a different type of player. Fulham will miss Holtby's vision and ability to control a match's tempo.

Mousa Dembele is back fit for Spurs as they host Fulham this weekend.

Dembele came through a U21 match earlier in the week, and could feature against Fulham, where he made his name in English football. He may have to settle for a place on the bench, however, with Paulinho, Nabil Bentaleb, and surprisingly Nacer Chadli, ahead of him in the pecking order for the two spots in central midfield.

Spurs striker, Roberto Soldado, is back in training after a hamstring injury. However, this weekend's match against Fulham comes to soon for him to return to first team action.

Soldado's injury has given youngster, Harry Kane, a chance to stake his own claim and two goals in as many matches makes a statement. He'll get a chance to make it three straight against Fulham this weekend.
Apr 18 - 12:38 AM

Michael Dawson is back in training, but won't be considered for the weekend's match against Fulham. Kyle Walker and Jan Vertonghen also miss out again, meaning the Spurs backline almost picks itself.

Kyle Naughton and Younes Kaboul seem nailed on. Vlad Chiriches, and Danny Rose will likely line-up against Fulham, but Zeki Fryers is an option to replace either man.
Apr 18 - 12:47 AM

Davide Santon suffered a hamstring injury in training, and the fear is that it rules him out for the remainder of the season.

Santon is rumoured to be a target for Roma in the off-season, and it would be a shame for his Newcastle career to end this way.
Apr 18 - 1:08 AM

Midfielder Gaston Ramirez injured his ankle (the other ankle from the one that was already giving him problems) and has been ruled out of the weekend match against Aston Villa.

Ramirez has never settled at Southampton. With Jay Rodriguez's injury and the manager's desire to give all his players a chance as the season winds down, Ramirez would have had a chance to stake his claim at the club. As it stands, he's likely to leave in the off-season.
