U.S. men's national team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann is thrilled to see his captain, Clint Dempsey, playing (on loan) for Fulham in a World Cup year.

"Obviously, we are pleased with Clint Dempsey, our captain, making the jump for two months to Fulham to get games in now," Klinsmann said. "He had a very difficult couple of months because of injury and the transition back into MLS. I think it's a great decision from Clint to start off the year in the right way going on loan for two months to Fulham, his old team. They need him to get them back up in the table of the league, and he will come already in good shape back into MLS. That is great! Hopefully now he gets games with Fulham and then he comes in completely different shape back to MLS and continues that path towards the World Cup."

Fantasy managers should keep the expectations for Andy Carroll rather low for the time being.

Carroll has played well in the past few matches but has to face Chelsea and Arsenal in his next two matches. That is no easy task even for an in form striker and Carroll is still regaining his form after being out for so long. The Hammers' schedule eases up after that and Carroll could be a great buy early in the New Year.

Leicester midfielder Andrew King believes Tottenham are beatable despite being a top squad.

King had a lot of praises for Tottenham but ended on a high note, saying he believes Spurs are beatable and it's up to the Foxes to find a weekend on Boxing Day. Despite his confidence, King is averaging only four fantasy points per match is not worth owning in any league.

Arsenal forward Lukas Podolski has agreed to personal terms with Inter Milan.

The forward has been an outcast this season and has played only 106 minutes in the Premier League. He wasn't even able to get playing time when Arsenal forward Olivier Giroud suffered an injury. Despite him agreeing to personal terms with Inter, there hasn't been any news of the two teams agreeing on a fee for Podolski. Stay tuned as the story develops.

Dusan Tadic trained with the main group starting on Monday and is expected to be fine for gameweek 18.

The midfielder has been in a huge scoring slump and missed the match against Everton through a minor knock. Although he should be fine to play on Friday, we don't recommend using him in daily leagues or season-long formats where you have other options. Only keep Tadic if you have him at a big discount, as he's bound to regain some of his old form back at some point in time.

Gabby Agbonlahor has won his red card appeal and will not have to serve a three-match ban.

The forward was sent off during Aston Villa's last match but he has won his appeal and that has been overturned. Gabby has never been sent off in his Premier League career and that remains true. He has not been a great fantasy option this season and despite playing tomorrow, it's hard to consider him in anything other than the deepest of formats.

Alexis Sanchez is expected to be rested at some point in time during the congested holiday period.

Sanchez has been deemed fatigued in recent weeks and that likely won't see him playing all three games over the next week. The Arsenal forward has been in hot form in the past few months and will be missed when he rests but the return Olivier Giroud will make everything a bit easier for the Gunners. We would recommend checking the starting lineups here on Rotoworld before firing up Sanchez in leagues where you can make changes up until kickoff.

Sam Vokes is on track to return to the first team squad any day now, with tomorrow's match against Liverpool a possible top flight debut for the Burnley striker.

Vokes was instrumental in Burnley's rise out of the Championship a season ago, and with the Clarets usually struggling to find that extra oomph in their attack, his return has been highly anticipated. By not having played a minute this season, his price is low in any format of the game but there is no need to run out and get him yet. Burnley are still a one man team when it comes to fantasy, and his name is Kieran Trippier. Regardless, we should see some improvement when Vokes eventually partners Danny Ings up top.

Making his first start since Week 6 last weekend and Brendan Rodgers apparently pleased with what he saw with a shakeup in formation, Lazar Markovic could be poised for a run in the side which puts him on the fantasy radar.

Rodgers liked what he saw when deploying three center backs and using wingers with Markovic having played on the right last weekend. He didn't score or assist but still managed a respectable 8 points in the Yahoo game, having been subbed off on 73 minutes. Still under 21, there is plenty of room for the prospect to grow and make his mark in the Premier League. At 5.66m in the Yahoo game, it is a situation worth monitoring closely.

Neil Taylor began the season as one of the better budget options available in defense and he has consistently produced all season while still at a bargain value.

Taylor has only missed one match this season as he has been a rock at left back, making the departure of Ben Davies look like a good business move. There's no rumor that Garry Monk is shopping for anyone that may challenge Taylor for his spot during January's transfer window, so Taylor looks to be nailed on through season's end. At 7.1m and hosting a Villa side that have struggled for goals, he is a solid buy for Boxing Day.

West Ham midfielder Mark Noble is expected to be fit for GW18 after missing games through a calf problem.

Noble is averaging seven points per match and his injuries have prevented him from having another solid season. Noble might not even earn the start as West Ham have a number of players who are capable of filling in. He is not a great option in fantasy leagues right now but may be a solid bench stash in season-long leagues.
Dec 24 - 6:33 PM

James Tomkins is dealing with a hamstring injury and will be assessed before West Ham's match against Chelsea on Friday.

Tomkins is doubtful for the contest and all signs point toward James Collins filling in for the center-back. West Ham have a very tough trip to Stamford Bridge and neither of their center-backs make for a very good option in fantasy leagues this weekend. If Tomkins continues to miss time, Collins could be an option in later weeks.
