Robin Van Persie is suffering from a groin strain, and has not traveled to Germany with the rest of the Manchester United squad.

Van Persie missed the weekend's match against Cardiff with a groin injury, not the toe injury that has been hampering him. He'll be a doubt for the trip to Spurs at the weekend.

Bojan looked like he'd be ready to start last weekend but Mark Hughes played it safe, will this be the week he gets his first start of the season for the Potters.

Who would have guessed that Stoke City would ever field a starting eleven that includes high profile flair-type players like Bojan and Xherdan Shaqiri but that's exactly what could happen this weekend as the two are likely to feature together for the first time. Former manager Tony Pulis will barely recognize the red and white striped squad that he used to lead with those sorts of skills on display. With the Baggies struggling so far and Stoke City restored to close to full strength the Potters seem likely to get the better of their old manager.

Chris Brunt injured his hamstring against Port Vale in the League Cup in mid-week and had to be substituted. He remains a significant doubt for Saturday's match against Stoke City.

Brunt, probably still somewhat angry after James Morrison bullied his way into taking a penalty against Chelsea and subsequently missing it, may have to wait for a more satisfying league outing. His hamstring complaint seems likely to force him out of this week's trip to the Britannia to face Stoke City. Brunt's absence would open up an opportunity for another Baggies player (McManaman?) to take kicks and corners and even a penalty if one were to be awarded. Let's hope it isn't Morrison who gets that spot if the need arises.

Adnan Januzaj has been ruled out of Manchester United's Week 4 trip to the Liberty Stadium with a hip injury.

Januzaj was only marginally effective in the playing time that he has received so far this season. With Marouane Fellaini eligible after serving his three match ban and Ander Herrera looming on the bench, it could be that Januzaj was going to be rotated anyway. His hip injury removes all doubt as the Belgium international will have to wait until at least after the international break before finding out where he stands in Louis Van Gaal's midfield pecking order.

Steve McClaren has indicated that Moussa Sissoko has "healed well" this week from the groin injury he suffered in Week 2, but cannot declare the midfielder fit quite yet.

In all leagues other than the official FPL.com game, given that the Magpies have the early Saturday kickoff, you should be able to get a look at team news in the morning and decide what to do with Sissoko if you own him. Even if he does lace the boots, it is a tough fixture and he may only be used for 45-60 minutes, so it would be recommended to go with another option if at all possible.

Dusan Tadic started out the season well in fantasy but not well enough to keep his place in the starting line-up as he sits on the bench again in Denmark.

Southampton have been leaking goals this season and Ronald Koeman's reaction has been moving to a five man defense with Targett, Caulker, Fonte, Yoshida and Martina starting against Midtjylland with Romeu in front of them. That has meant that Tadic has been left on the bench for a third consecutive match after being yanked at halftime against Everton in Week 2. It may be that Tadic returns to the line-up once Jordy Clasie is available but we may be back to the second half of last season where Tadic was not a reliable starter.

Rudy Gestede gets his easiest matchup of the season in week four, at home against Sunderland.

Sunderland have allowed teams to shoot 19 times per game against them, highest in the league by a margin. They've also allowed nine goals in their first three matches, which were against Leicester, Norwich, and Swansea. There hasn't been much to be optimistic about at Sunderland, and Aston Villa can take advantage this week when they face them. Gestede should be licking his lips at the opportunities he'll have on Saturday.

Aston Villa midfielder Aleksander Tonev has completed a permanent move to Seria A newcomers Frosinone.

Tonev never established a rotation spot at Aston Villa and was a huge disappointment for fans. Everyone expected him to replace Bulgarian legend Stilian Petrov at the club, but Tonev never became half the player Petrov was. He has made 17 appearances for Villa but his only note-worthy contribution was a seven-match ban for racial abuse. Villa should be happy they've able to recoup some of the money they spent on him.

John Terry will miss Chelsea's week four match due to being suspended.

Terry was sent off in the Blues' win in week three when he brought down Salomon Rondon in the 54th minute. He was sent off for denying a goal-scoring opportunity, which brings a one match ban. In his absence, the most likely starting duo for the Blues will be Gary Cahill and Kurt Zouma, who seems to be securing a starting spot in Jose Mourinho's rotation.

Jack Grealish started in place of Scott Sinclair in Aston Villa's week three match.

Grealish played the full 90 in Aston Villa's loss to Crystal Palace and despite looking a bit rusty, he seems to be the preferred choice for Tim Sherwood. It's important to note that both Sinclair and Jordan Ayew were on the bench for that match and both should be considered as very risky to own in fantasy leagues this season. The reasons are that they aren't guaranteed playing time and Aston Villa's attack lacks goals to bring them relevant fantasy value. Avoid Ayew and Sinclair for now.

Andros Townsend, who has yet to make the Spurs squad this season, may take part in their Week 4 match with Everton according to Maurico Pochettino.

With news coming in tandem that Christian Eriksen has been ruled out of Week 4, Spurs may have an extra midfield option in Townsend if he looks sharp in training the next couple of days. Erik Lamela didn't seem to take advantage of Eriksen's absence in Week 3 and Townsend is certainly more dangerous out wide than a Moussa Dembele. Still, it sounds like it will be a matchday decision for Poch to even include Townsend in the squad, so he cannot be looked at as a fantasy option.

Having seemingly given up on the pursuit of Saido Berahino, Tottenham have prepared a bid for the transfer of forward Son Heung-min from Bayer Leverkusen.

Time is running out on Daniel Levy to add a much-needed striker to the squad and after spending weeks trying to woo away Berahino, they are now scouring the globe for a competent striker. Son, a South Korean international, has had decent success in the Bundesliga, scoring 21 times in 63 appearances, and is still not fully mature at 23 years of age. He would need to exhibit the physicality necessary to thrive in the Premier League as a striker, but if signed, he will be a clear #2 to Kane as an option.
