Jonjo Shelvey was held out of Swansea City's Europa loss to Napoli last night because of a hamstring injury, but manager Garry Monk stated he expects the midfielder to be available Sunday when the Swans host Crystal Palace.

Shelvey has had a pretty successful first season as a Swan but he appears to have an ongoing hamstring problem which makes it difficult to trust him in fantasy. While he has the green light to start this weekend (he will be needed as Michu continues to work his way back) there is no guarantee he will, and if he does, there's always a chance he could pull up limp just minutes into the game.

Marko Arnautovic has been given the all clear ahead of Friday's match with Leicester City after suffering a wrist injury during last weekend's defeat at Watford.

Arnautovic was substituted in the second half of last weekend's match with Watford, but manager David Moyes has revealed the knock was not as serious as initially feared and the No.7 will be fit to face the Foxes. "It was badly swollen – it was a bit like a boxer’s hand when we saw it the next day," said Moyes. "But he’s fine. He has trained with a good plaster on it. He’s okay." Andre Ayew, who missed Moyes's first match due to illness, will also be available for Friday's match. With Chicharito and Michail Antonio both ruled out, Arnautovic and Ayew could make the starting XI. Andy Carroll, who started against Watford, is another option upfront, while Diafra Sakho could see minutes off the bench.

Victor Moses is set to make his return from injury when Chelsea travel to Liverpool on Saturday.

The Nigeria international has not featured since suffering a hamstring injury in October, but manager Antonio Conte has revealed Moses will be included in the matchday squad at Anfield. However, given his length of absence, it's unlikely he will make the starting XI. Conte, speaking at his pre-match press conference, said: "Tomorrow Moses is in our squad. I think I want to put him on the bench, and then to decide if there is the necessity to put him on or not." Davide Zappacosta is expected to start at right wing-back, while Moses will challenge to regain his place once fully fit.

Javier Hernandez and Michail Antonio will miss Friday's match against Leicester City.

Chicharito (hamstring) will miss his second straight match while Antonio (leg) will miss his third, but the pair could return for next Wednesday's match against Everton. Manager David Moyes confirmed Antonio was back in full training this week but, like defender James Collins, would not be risked versus the Foxes with a busy festive run of fixtures on the horizon. With Chicharito and Antonio unavailable, Andre Ayew and Marko Arnautovic, who overcome a wrist injury suffered at the weekend, could lead the attack.

James Morrison has been missing in recent weeks with an Achilles issue and while he's close he won't be ready for the trip tok Spurs

One wonders if West Brom's attacking plasyers like Morrison will get more of a chance with new management in place. It won't happen in Week 13 with Morrison and Nacer Chadli both still out but all should be aware that playing time assumptions will have to be reevaluated at the Hawthorns going forward.

Xherdan Shaqiri is questionable for Stoke City's Week 13 trip to Selhurst Park.

The Swiss international picked up another assist in Week 12. His play has finally started to live up to his reputation. Now, if only he could stay healthy. His participation in Week 13 against Crystal Palace is in doubt after his hamstring tightened up on Monday. If he plays, expectations should be high. If not, the Potters may well struggle to score.

Week 13 will come too soon for Nacer Chadli as he recovers from his hip injury.

Interim manager Gary Megson confirmed that Nacer Chadli will miss Albion's Week 13 match on Saturday at Wembley. It's hard to know what to expect from the Baggies after Tony Pulis' dismissal but a result aga inst Spurs seems unlikely.

Arsene Wenger has declared Danny Welbeck fit for Week 13 against Burnley after holding him out an extra week as a precaution.

Danny Welbeck came back from his last injury and didn't last a full match before coming off with a hamstring injury. With Welbeck recovering Arsene Wenger decided to exercise caution and kept him out against Spurs. After the exceptional performances from Sanchez and Ozil against their North London rivals, expect Welbeck to start out on the bench against the Clarets on Sunday.

Manchester United has revealed detailed team news ahead of Brighton's visit to Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

First choice centre-back pairing Phil Jones and Eric Bailly have been ruled out but Mourinho is not concerned as he still has Chris Smalling, Victor Lindelof, and the fit-again Marcos Rojo at his disposal. Mourinho also confirmed that Zlatan Ibrahimovic will feature at some point in the tie as he continues his comeback from injury: "I prefer him on the pitch than off the pitch... We managed to give him 15/20 minutes in both matches, he needs more of that, so hopefully, tomorrow, we play him again." Paul Pogba is a confirmed starter for Saturday but he is unlikely to play the full 90 as Mourinho tries to protect his star man from fatigue.

Theo Walcott has fallen ill and will miss Arsenal's Week 13 match against Burnley.

The Arsenal forward has not been starting regularly so there isn't a great deal of impact with him missing what should be only a single match. Danny Welbeck is available again so Welbeck will likely be the first attacker off the bench on Sunday.

Kiko Femenia went off in week 12 but will be back in week 13 against Newcastle.

Marco Silva indicated in his press conference that Femenia is ok to play against Newcastle. He has come in and exceeded expectations and taken a spot from Dutch international Daryl Janmaat. Look for a strong performance from Femenia against Newcastle.

Newcastle won't have starters Jamaal Lascelles and Christian Atsu available to face Watford this weekend.

The Newcastle duo have missed the last few weeks due to injury with Lascelles suffering an ankle problem against Bournemouth in Week 11. The captain looks more likely to be ready for Gameweek 15 than the midweek fixtures next week. However, there is good news on the defensive front with Paul Dummett in full training. Said manager Rafa Benitez: "Lascelles is getting better, but still he will need some time, and Atsu is the same. It’s too early to say (when they will be back). "But Merino’s been doing part of the training session, and Dummett has done the full training session, so that’s positive news for us."
