John Terry turned in a brilliant shift for Chelsea, leading his club to a 1-0 win over Everton and keeping them top of the league table.

Terry came ever so close to getting a touch on the ball that would deflect off of Tim Howard for the only goal of the game. Had he done that, fantasy owners would be dancing in the streets right now. Unfortunately, Terry had come back from injury and considering the opponent and the doubt to his starting meant most active managers probably avoided him. He won every tackle, he won every challenge in the air, and he completed 95 of 96 passes in his efforts. The Chelsea defense continues to dominate, and having one representative on a weekly basis regardless of opponent is looking like a legitimate strategy. They travel to Fulham next.

Chelsea legend and captain John Terry scored the opening and eventual game-winning goal for the second straight match as the Blues continue to pace the league at the top of the table with a tidy 2-0 win over West Ham United.

Chelsea were in complete control in this one but they did not get their first payoff until a half hour in, when a Cesc Fabregas corner was headed by Diego Costa to the foot of Terry who tapped it in. Costa would have yet another big day himself, scoring the second goal in the second half. West Ham turned the ball over, Eden Hazard threaded a pass to Costa, and the Spaniard shook off three defenders to fire a patented missile past the Hammer keeper. Hazard was a doubt to make this match and went to ground just two minutes in, but he shook off the knock and played the full 90 minutes.

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.
Dec 25 - 1:02 PM

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.
