Claudio Ranieri is confident Kasper Schmeichel will be ready for action when play resumes in the Premier League on September 10.

Ranieri was speaking following his sides’ 2-0 victory over Swansea, their first win of the season, and a game which saw Schmeichel replaced after an hour due to injury. The 29-year-old reacted quickly to thwart Fernando Llorente and prevent the on-rushing Swansea forward from latching onto a through-ball, but hurt himself in doing so. "He has a little hernia [problem] and Monday he will have an operation," the Italian said post-match. "It will take four of five days and he will be ready for the next match. He wanted to play today, but he felt something and wanted to change." Summer recruit [from Hannover 96] Ron Robert Zieler came on for the final half-hour.

James McCarthy could require surgery to remedy an ongoing groin problem with Everton likely to make a decision this week.

McCarthy has had an indifferent start under the stewardship of Ronald Koeman. Having played in the opener against Tottenham, he was then restricted to just 38 minutes at the Hawthorns after the Toffees boss opted for a change of tactics following a poor start. Named in the starting XI for the midweek cup game versus Yeovil Town, McCarthy lasted an hour before he was forced off with what Koeman initially described as a minor knock. However, speaking the press on Saturday, the Dutchman revealed that McCarthy’s injury was a lot more serious than first thought: "He has a groin problem. We need to decide if it is operation, yes or no." The 25-year-old has struggled because of injury since late 2015, spending over three-months on the sidelines, but following his involvement at Euro 2016, McCarthy was believed he was over the niggling issues which have hampered his year.

Jose Mourinho is sweating on the fitness of Marouane Fellaini who has become an unlikely mainstay of the United midfield.

Fellaini has played a prominent role in this seasons’ opening fixtures, playing every minute in helping his side to take maximum points. "Special" is not how we would have imagined Mourinho to describe the Belgian, but his performances have changed his relationship with the Old Trafford faithful. "Maybe a simple phone call can make a difference," he said and now that Fellaini is feeling the love - his confidence is beginning to grow which is why this setback will be a concern: "He has an injury in his back. It's not good." Although Fellaini will join up with Belgium [to be assessed by the national team doctors] he is expected to miss the upcoming fixtures against Spain and Cyprus.

Substitute Marcus Rashford's first appearance of the season proved a huge point to Mourinho when he dug his team out with his late winner.

However, fantasy managers should not panic about Zlatan Ibrahimovic's blank display. United lacked creativity in the first half, struggling to break down Hull's organised defence, yet it was Ibra who came closest with a header from a Martial cross going marginally over. The introduction of Mkhitaryan brought real impetus to United's play and brought Zlatan more into the game.The Swede ended with no shots on target but had many efforts blocked. His service in the area was also good. Even the best have off days, don't panic!

Southampton have signed a back-up keeper for Fraser Forster and Alex McCarthy in the form of 35 year old veteran Stuart Taylor.

The former Arsenal, Man City and Reading man has arrived on a free transfer, having been released by his last club, Leeds United, in May of 2015. In spite of his age, Taylor is yet to make 100 senior appearances, having served as backup at every club he has played for. He is a Premier League winner from his time at Arsenal. He won a league winners' medal in 2001-02 having qualified for it with his 10th appearances as a sub in the 85th minute of the game. Taylor replaces Paolo Gazziniga who moved to Rayo Vallecano on loan, and Kelvin Davis who retired, at St. Mary's.

Michail Antonio scored for the second straight match but West Ham failed in their bid to comeback from a two goal deficit and eventually fell to Manchester City, 3-1.

Between the class of Manchester City and the lack of firepower for the Hammers due to injury it was a completely one-sided affair in the first half with the Citizens dominating in every way. They built an early two-goal lead and looked primed to run away with the match convincingly. However, City took the foot off of the gas during the second half and allowed West Ham to get back in the game in the 58th minute, when Antonio headed home from an Arthur Masuaku cross. City were able to hang on though, and added another goal in stoppage time to put the game to bed. The Hammers will look forward to the upcoming international break in the hopes that they can get some players healthy over the next two weeks.

It was touch and go for a stretch in the second half but Manchester City were able to make their early cushion stand and defeat West Ham United, 3-1, with a brace from Raheem Sterling.

City looked to pick up right where they left off last weekend when they put four past Stoke City by scoring twice in the opening eighteen minutes. In the 7th minute, David Silva picked out Nolito on the left who had time and space to feed Sterling a cross in the box for a one-time finish. Eleven minutes later, Kevin de Bruyne sent a free kick into the area and the ball was headed home by an unmarked Fernandinho. City were in cruise control but West Ham managed to pull one back just before the hour mark to make a game of it. Sterling would put the game to bed in stoppage time though, latching on to a Silva pass, worked his way around the keeper and tucked it home from a tight angle. After a forgettable first season for the Citizens, Sterling has found new life under Pep Guardiola, sitting on two goals and two assists through the first three league games.

According to Sky Sports sources, Tottenham's Nacer Chadli is set to join West Bromwich Albion on a season-long loan.

Spurs seem determined to move Chadli away permanently, as he has not been able to make the bench for any of their first three league matches, but with the transfer window nearing its close, they may be willing to settle on a loan move for now. West Brom are definitely keen on a wide attacking player, having shown interest earlier in the week on getting Southampton's Jay Rodriguez on loan. Chadli would certainly see playing time under Tony Pulis and could make for a potentially lucrative pickup in fantasy draft leagues for those looking for help in their midfield.

Palermo have made an offer to Liverpool for the transfer of Mario Balotelli and is giving the oft-maligned striker 24 hours to decide if he wants to join the club.

Palermo is Balotelli's birth city so, if he has any sentimentality in that regard, perhaps he will say "yes" to the arrangement. The sticking point for him would be a reduction in his weekly wages but that would seem to be the case wherever he winds up and the Reds are certainly going to do whatever it takes to offload him. Everton, West Brom and Crystal Palace have also been linked to Balotelli recently but it would seem a more ideal fit for the Italian to head back to Serie A to get his career back on track.

Real Madrid are looking to deal out playmaking midfielder Isco and reports indicate that Tottenham would be the likeliest destination for the Spanish international.

According to the Daily Mirror, Isco could be loaned out to Spurs for the current season with the option to make it a permanent move next summer. Madrid need to trim their squad and one of Isco or James Rodriguez are the candidates for an exit, but the club's president has let it be known to manager Zinedine Zidane that he would prefer the latter stays. Chelsea have interest in the 24-year-old as well but Tottenham are apparently leading the charge for Isco's services. It would be a major addition to their attack and would call into question what has been rather set attacking four. Isco would have to find playing time around current regulars Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela and Dele Alli. It is a problem Mauricio Pochettino would certainly like to have, especially ahead of a Champions League campaign,

A deal is in place and nearing completion that would see Chelsea striker Patrick Bamford join Burnley FC on a season-long loan deal.

According to manager Sean Dyche, "It's just a few i's getting dotted and t's getting crossed' before the deal for Bamford gets done. The Clarets would mark the third top flight club the Blues have loaned the young striker out to since last summer, and his spells at Crystal Palace and Norwich City did little for his development. He only made thirteen combined appearances for the Eagles and Canaries, failing to score a single goal. There is still belief in the 22-year-old though, who was fantastic for Middlesbrough in the Championship during the 2014-2015 season, scoring seventeen goals in 39 appearances. Dyche prefers to start two forwards and Andre Gray looks to have one of those spots nailed down. If Bamford is to challenge for starts, it would likely come at the expense of Sam Vokes. He will probably bump Lucas Jutkiewicz in the squad's depth chart.
