Samir Nasri scored twice for Manchester City and the Sky Blues were able to dispose of a depleted Swansea City side rather easily in a 3-0 win.

Nasri almost got a hat trick but his brace is enough to raise the eyebrow of many a fantasy manager. With David Silva out and Sergio Aguero having an off day, Nasri capitalized on the opportunity to showcase his talents. He was setup beautifully by Yaya Toure and Pablo Zabaleta for the two scores, but it still required a nimble touch to finish properly and he did just that. Expect a price rise for Nasri, if you wish to roster him, bring him in now. City travel to West Brom next.

Leroy Fer collected his fourth goal of the season but Swansea City squandered an early lead and would eventually fall at the hands of Liverpool in a 1-2 loss.

With a game that many think would decide the fate of manager Francesco Guidolin, his players did him no favors by missing a few big chances to score and allowing a match-winner via a penalty. They took the lead early, when Leroy Fer poached a goal that started from a corner, was headed by Borja, then touched by Mike van der Hoorn before Fer cleaned up. Borja had two good chances at headed goals on either side of the Fer goal but was off target. The Reds then found the fluid attack they've been accustomed to in the second half and scored the go-ahead goal on the 84th minute. Still, the Swans had a chance at the last minute to equalize, but van der Hoorn scuffed a shot from point blank range.

Liverpool found themselves a goal down heading into the second half but they got their attack going again, with Roberto Firmino scoring and drawing a penalty that provided the match-winner as the Reds edged Swansea City, 1-2.

After being kept out of the scoring fun when the Reds put up five goals last week, Firmino grabbed the spotlight today. The Reds defense were questionable once again, conceding the opener inside of 8 minutes and continuing their season without collecting a clean sheet. Things took a turn for the worse when Adam Lallana left on 20 minutes with a groin injury. The Reds attack finally started to click in the second frame though and Firmino leveled the score with a header from a Jordan Henderson free kick. Then, in the 84th minute, Firmino drew a foul in the box, allowing James Milner to score the winner from the spot. Milner has four shots on the season, all from penalties, and has scored them all, including three in the last two games. A big match against Manchester United awaits the Reds next after the international break.

Adam Lallana had to leave the match against Swansea City after only 20 minutes due to a groin injury.

Lallana has been in fantastic form, having as much to do with the success of the Reds high-flying attack as anyone, so to see him make his way down the tunnel after 20 minutes is a major blow to the club. He went to ground once before, picked himself to continue on, but collapsed again a few minutes later. Hopefully, that attempt to play on hasn't further damaged the injury. It would seem he will certainly miss out of international duty for England over the break but we will need to wait for an assessment on his groin before determining if how much, if any, more time he may be out.

Fernando Llorente has been kept out of the squad for Swansea's match against Liverpool as the striker is dealing with a minor rib injury.

There was no mention of Llorente's injury up until team news was released an hour before kickoff, but reports indicate it is a minor problem, so with the international break coming up, he should likely come back into contention for Week 8 against Arsenal. Borja makes his second consecutive start as the lead striker while youngster Oliver McBurnie makes the bench as a secondary option.

Jefferson Montero has been kept out of the matchday squad for Swansea City's tilt with Liverpool as the winger is dealing with an ankle injury.

Montero is one of three Swans who were not injury flagged heading into the day, only to have the information released after the club submitted their team sheet. The Ecuadorian international has yet to make a start for Swansea in league play this season but has made a few appearances in the final half hour of matches as a substitute. He had just signed a new contract last week that will see him committed to the club until 2020 but, for today, Francesco Guidolin will not be able to call on him. On the bright side, the international break will give Montero time to recover before the Jacks Week 8 clash with Arsenal.

Federico Fernandez is one of three late scratches for Swansea City today, as he misses out the contest with Liverpool with a minor groin injury.

Fernandez was dropped a week ago in the match against Manchester City for Mike van der Hoorn and the Dutchman steps in once again to partner Jordi Amat against the Reds. Alfie Mawson, who was brought in late during the summer window serves as the backup center back on the bench today. Interestingly, Stephen Kingsley has been kept out of the squad for the second week running, with no report of injury. Angel Rangel and Kyle Naughton are the fullbacks of choice with Neil Taylor taking his place on the bench.

Romelu Lukaku and Christian Benteke scored each of their club's goals as Everton and Crystal Palace drew 1-1 at Goodison Park on Friday.

Everton began the match looking the better side as their offensive pressure saw them control the majority of the early chances. The Toffees eventually found their break through when they were award a free-kick after Phil Jagielka was fouled just outside the area. Romelu Lukaku made the most of the opportunity as his curling effort flew over the stationary wall and in, leaving goalkeeper Steve Mandanda helpless. Crystal Palace responded just five minutes when Christian Benteke converted a difficult header in the 50th minute. The Eagles then appeared to have grabbed the lead 15 minutes later as Delaney headed in, but the assistant's flag was up. Lukaku's goal, his fifh this season, would go on to prove enough for Everton to end Palace's two-match Premier League unbeaten streak.

Christian Benteke scored a goal (one shot on target) in Crystal Palace's entertaining and controversial 1-1 draw with Everton at Goodison Park on Friday.

Benteke was the hero for Crystal Palace for the second match in a row. The Belgian international leveled the score when he headed in a cross from Joel Ward in the 50th minute, which was his third goal in five appearances since moving to Palace. The Eagles continued to press Everton and looked to have went ahead when Damien Delaney converted a header in the 75th minute. However, following a discussion between the two officials, it was decided the effort should not stand as the assistant's flag went up on the goal. The result of the match pushed Palace to 7th in the table and saw Benteke score his fifth goal in six career matches against the Toffees.

After missing last weekend with a hamstring complaint, Younes Kaboul could return to Walter Mazzarri's starting eleven with Craig Cathcart and Miguel Britos both uncertain.

Given that the Cherries have struggled to score all season, any news related to defenders potentially starting against them is important. This is even more true given that the Hornets are hosting Eddie Howe's men improving the chances of a clean sheet further. Kaboul, who tends to do well on peripheral statistics like aerial duels won and tackles won when he plays, could be a solid low end/emergency starter in draft/auction formats and even worthy of consideration for salary cap formats based on a potentially low price and the chance of a clean sheet.

Craig Cathcart's starting status against Bournemouth in Week 7 is questionable due to a groin injury.

If Cathcart can't go then Younes Kaboul is likely to return to the starting eleven for Walter Mazzarri's side. Cathcart hasn't been a great fantasy performer thus far but the arrival of the Cherries and their attacking woes provides some hope for a clean sheet at Vicarage Road. Kaboul is now the odds on favorite to benefit from a good match-up.

Joe Allen faces a race against the clock to be ready for Stoke City's trip to Old Trafford in Week 7.

Tightness in his hamstring has meant that the Wales international has yet to train since his goal-scoring turn against West Brom last weekend. With the Potters languishing in 19th place, Mark Hughes may err on the side of bringing his summer acquisition back sooner rather than later. Hughes' job may well be in danger if the Potters don't pick up their first win of the season soon.
