Angel Rangel limped off near the end of Swansea City's match with Valencia, getting treatment on the sideline until the final whistle with an apparent calf injury.

The severity of Rangel's injury has yet to be determined, but he must be considered a doubt for the Swans' trip to Manchester City this weekend. Dwight Tiendalli would likely deputize at right back should Rangel miss out. Investment in Swansea defense is not recommended this weekend.

Thibaut Courtois will miss Belgium's friendly against Russia on Tuesday due to a minor hip problem but is not expected to miss anytime for Chelsea.

Courtois played the full 90 minutes but sustained a hip injury in the 1-1 World Cup qualifying draw with Greece in Brussels on Saturday. However, according to Belgian journalist Kristof Terreur, Courtois is expected to be fit for Chelsea's clash with Crystal Palace on Saturday. Terreur tweeted: "Thibaut Courtois won't play against Russia due to a minor hip problem. Expected to be fit against Crystal Palace, though." In the event Courtois is unable to recover in time for this weekend, Conte will likely hand Asmir Begovic his first league start of the season.

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy scored his sixth goal for England to help them to a 2-0 2018 World Cup qualifying win over Lithuania at Wembley Stadium on Sunday evening.

Vardy was introduced on the hour mark for Jermain Defoe and needed just six minutes to make mark his, as the Foxes No.9 tucked home a close-range in the 66th minute to wrap up all three points. The goal was Vardy's fourth in his last five matches across all competitions, having scored a brace against Liverpool on February 27 and the winner during Leicester's 3-2 victory over West Ham prior to the international break. Vardy, who has scored eight league goals this term, will look to extend his form when Leicester face Stoke City at home on Saturday.

Chelsea were left on tenterhooks yesterday when Diego Costa was sent for an X-ray after sustaining an ankle injury in training.

Fortunately, the Spanish Football Federation have confirmed that Costa did not suffer a serious injury and he will remain with the squad for the game with France tomorrow, although it remains unclear whether the in-from striker will be involved. Costa scored during Spain's 4-1 win over Israel to help maintain top spot in Group G, on goal difference from Italy, but there will be no point in taking any unnecessary risks for the friendly in Paris. Domestically, Chelsea face Crystal Palace this weekend, and despite the Blues sitting ten-points clear of their nearest rivals, Antonio Conte will be keen to ensure he has a full squad at his disposal. Chelsea have been boosted further by the news that Eden Hazard looks set to be available: "I have had a week of treatment with my club. I think I will be ready for the next match."

Manchester United are facing a potential midfield crisis when they take on West Brom at Old Trafford this weekend.

Marouane Fellaini becomes the latest addition to the United treatment room after he was released from the Belgium squad because of a "minor" toe complaint. The news follows quickly on the heels of Bastian Schweinsteiger who left for pastures new [MLS side Chicago Fire] last week, while Jose Mourinho’s men will definitely be without Ander Herrera due to suspension in game week 30. With Paul Pogba [hamstring] struggling, Wayne Rooney maybe called upon as a makeshift midfielder. The setback caps a miserable seven days for the club who lost Phil Jones and Chris Smalling to injury while Zlatan Ibrahimović is also serving a domestic ban. Fortunately, Jesse Lingard [ankle] and Henrikh Mkhitaryan [hamstring] appear to be over their recent problems with United facing a hectic month of Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League fixtures.

The future of Manchester United defender Luke Shaw at the club is thought to be intertwined with Man City's hunt for Spurs' Danny Rose

The former Southampton man has fallen out of favour at United this season under new manager Jose Mourinho and has been subject to much speculation of late. Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is understood to believe that he has a good chance of luring England international Danny Rose to the Etihad in a deal worth £50 million, with Spurs looking to draft in Luke Shaw to replace him.

Stoke City are rumoured to be lining up a bid for Hull full-back Andrew Robertson.

Robertson has been linked with moves away from the club for some time, with a variety of clubs apparently interested. However, Hull are preparing to try and hold onto the promising Scottish defender through another transfer window, having fended off a £10 million bid for his services in January from Burnley.

West Ham United are preparing a bid for Hull defender Josh Tymon according to media reports.

Tymon, 17, has caught the eye of a number of potential suitors with his performances for the senior team this season including the Hammers. It's unlikely that his name will stop circulating in the media until he signs his first professional contract, which has been under negotiation for a number of months.

Arsenal supporters will be boosted by talisman Alexis overcoming his ankle injury to take the field for Chile against Argentina in World Cup qualifying.

There are still massive questions about Sanchez's future at the Emirates but for the short term it seems likely he will be back for the stretch run. The Gunners will be hoping to overtake at least two of Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, and Spurs to return to the Champions League yet again under Arsene Wenger. Failure to do so could see the club start in on a series of changes in the squad and in management.

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil's month has only continued to get worse with the German picking up another injury.

The German playmaker is not expected to be available for Germany's World Cup qualifier with Azerbaijan on Sunday after sustaining a back injury, according to a statement from the German FA: "Mesut Ozil is suffering from back problems and sat out the final training session in Kamen this morning." Ozil already missed Wednesday's friendly against England due to a hamstring injury and has missed much of the month due to illness. Despite not even playing during the international break, Ozil could return to Arsenal in worse shape than he left.

Sunderland's relegation race just took on entirely new implications with the future of Jerman Defoe at stake.

The 34-year-old has been the club's clear standout player over the past two seasons and leads the Black Cats in scoring this season with 14 goals, which led to a recall into the England national team for the current international break. Despite his form, Sunderland currently sit bottom of the Premier League and, if relegated, Defoe said he will likely leave to save his international career: "You have to be realistic, to get into any squad is based on merit and to do that you have to be playing at the top level...So, yeah, I would say you would need to be playing in the Premier League but we'll see what happens"

Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser did not make his international debut as expected against Canada on Wednesday due to a swollen knee.

The Scotsman was called up for the first time by his country for this international break but could not take to the field against the Canadians after he suffered his injury on the day of the game. Scotland assistant manager Mark McGhee hopes that Fraser can be fit in time to face Slovenia on Sunday: " "Ryan will get a check... They will then make a decision on whether there is anything they can push Ryan towards, to try to get him fit."
