Manchester City will be missing Yaya Toure for up to two weeks due to the groin injury picked up against Liverpool.

This is obviously bad news for City, but Yaya was initially ruled out of playing again this season, so it could've been worse. The midfielder will miss the second part of this double-week against Sunderland, as well as the clash against West Brom in Week 35, but Manuel Pellegrini will be hoping he could be ready to return against Crystal Palace at the end of April. In other news, Vincent Kompany and Sergio Aguero both came through the Liverpool game without problems and will be expected to start on Wednesday.

Week 26 will come too soon for Ryan Shawcross in his recovery from a significant back injury but he should be available for Week 27 in two weeks time.

Shawcross is close to a return but he won't quite be ready in time to feature for Mark Hughes as the Potters travel to Bournemouth for Week 26. The Potters have been slumping badly at both ends of the pitch having given up nine goals and scored none in their past three Premier League matches corresponding with Shawcross' absence. The Cherries should be favored in this one with Benik Afobe and Junior Stanislas both tipped for significant production.

Jon Walters was a late scratch with a virus last weekend but he should be available again for Week 26.

Mark Hughes will have to decide who he wants to start against the Cherries as he looks to break a four match goalless streak in the Premier League. The Potters last scored on January 13 in their 3-1 win against Norwich. Since then it has been nothing but goalless performances against Arsenal, Leicester City, Manchester United and Everton in the league and against Crystal Palace in the FA Cup. Bojan has been benched twice in that span but after the Barcelona product signed a new contract this week, he seems likely to get the start over Walters.

Gareth McAuley is definitely out for Week 26 with a hamstring injury and Jonny Evans, Craig Dawson and Chris Brunt are all doubtful as well.

That's pretty much Tony Pulis' entire starting defense that's unlikely to feature this weekend against high scoring Everton at Goodison Park. If you're looking for a team that's likely to have goals then the Toffees are probably as good a bet as you can find with West Brom struggling even when healthy and now injured on top of that. This one could get ugly so probably not the week to feature Ben Foster or anyone from the Albion defense.

Troy Deeney was given a rest last weekend over concerns about his fitness but he should be ready for a quick return to the starting eleven at Selhurst Park.

The pairing of Troy Deeney and Odion Ighalo has carried the Watford attack all season. Ighalo has been the headliner tied for 4th in the Premier League with 14 goals on the season. Deeney hasn't been nearly as flashy or garnered nearly as many headlines but his hard work leading the line, knocking down long balls and setting up his high scoring teammate has been just as important. Deeney has scored six of his own goals and assisted on eight more. Looking deeper, he is tied for second among forwards with 37 chances created, one behind leader Romelu Lukaku. This is a long way of saying that his return to the Hornets starting line-up is important.

While there weren't many details, Louis Van Gaal said that there was a "light at the end of the tunnel" for long term absentees Antonio Valencia and Marcos Rojo.

As soon as it looks like Antonio Valencia might be back for the Red Devils, Matteo Darmian has been playing some of his best football of the year. He was one of United's best players last weekend against Chelsea. The return of Valencia will, at a minimum, create much-needed depth. Valencia's return to the starting line-up, which looked like a certainty as recently as a few weeks ago, is looking less likely with every successive strong outing from Darmian.

Phil Jones suffered a setback in his recovery from an ankle injury during Manchester United's 7-0 U21 league victory of Norwich on Monday.

The Red Devils remain perilously thin at the back and were counting on the return of Phil Jones to boost depth even if he wasn't likely to dislodge either Chris Smalling or Daley Blind in the starting eleven. Jones, who hasn't played much at all this season and only once in 2016, shouldn't be out too much longer according to Louis Van Gaal's assessment but the trend for Jones is certainly a worrying one with only 10 Premier League matches to his credit this season and only six starts.

Jack Colback has been training all week according to Steve McClaren and is available for selection when Newcastle United travel this weekend to take on Chelsea.

McClaren announced that Emmanuel Riviere is available as well, but the French striker is far behind the pecking order at Newcastle with Aleksandar Mitrovic, Seydou Doumbia and Ayoze Perez all ahead of him, though Perez can play elsewhere. The boost comes from Colback's return. While normally deployed in central defensive midfield, he may line up at left back, where he has experience. Rolando Aarons was the latest emergency fill-in at the position and to be fair the Magpies kept a clean sheet in the process. But that was West Brom without a true striker and this is Chelsea up next, so expect Colback to find himself in the back four this weekend.

Max Gradel has returned to the club and is beginning the early stages of training as he looks to regain his fitness after a lengthy layoff following knee surgery.

Gradel was the big summer signing for the Cherries in their promotional season and was highly influential straight away, notching three assists in the first four matches of the season. It was in the fourth match that his knee was damaged though and has been sidelined ever since. Bournemouth have done well to stay above the relegation zone after losing Gradel and Callum Wilson so early in the season and now with Benik Afobe leading the line, having Gradel back could really improve the attack enough to stave off the drop. It will be a while before we see him starting again, but once he has match fitness, it is likely that he will jump ahead of Junior Stanislas and Marc Pugh in the pecking order.

Jurgen Klopp revealed that Dejan Lovren will be left out of action this weekend when Liverpool travel to play Aston Villa.

Earlier in the week, Lovren's chances of being fit against Aston Villa were looking favorable, as Klopp had indicated that the center back was taken out of last weekend's match against Sunderland as a precaution. Unfortunately, the manager indicated that Lovren "has a strange feeling in his muscle" but hopes to have the Croatian available for the Reds next game. It looks like it will be a Mamadou Sakho and Kolo Toure partnership at center back once again on Sunday.

Joe Allen will be "out for a while" according to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, as the midfielder has to recover from a hamstring injury picked up last weekend.

Allen, along with Dejan Lovren, were removed early during the eventual draw with Sunderland in Week 25. The prognosis for both looked as though the injuries were minor and both would be available in a week's time. However, Lovren has been ruled out for at least the weekend clash with Aston Villa while it sounds as though Allen will be sidelined for even longer. The Reds will likely line up with Jordan Henderson, Emre Can and James Milner playing between the back four and the attacking three.

Manchester City will finally see the return of its captain after Vincent Kompany was cleared to make his first appearance of 2016 after a persistent calf injury.

Kompany has only made one appearance since the end of November, which lasted only nine minutes before suffering a setback in his recovery from injury. But with Kompany's return comes another injury on the back-line as Bacary Sagna has been ruled out due to a knee injury, said Manuel Pellegrini: "Vincent has worked for three weeks with no problems. He played 45 minutes in a friendly game against the under-21s and I think he’s ready to play. Bacary had last week a problem in his knee - some liquid in his knee. He needs an injection and one week at least to return to work." It may not be time just yet to add Kompany back to the lineup. Even if he starts, City will be going up against a streaking Spurs attack, meaning it might be best to wait until Week 27 following Champions League and FA Cup action.
