With a deal of Alberto Moreno seemingly stalling, Liverpool are reportedly looking at Swiss international Ricardo Rodriguez as an alternative.

It isn't clear exactly how much cheaper Wolfsburg left back Ricardo Rodriguez would be than the £20m Sevilla are apparently asking for Moreno now but at least Liverpool are showing the Spanish side that they have some options. Quite why Wolfsburg, seemingly big spenders themselves this summer if the Alvaro Morata rumors are true, would sell isn't clear but who are we to question the always-reliable summer transfer rumor mill? Based on Switzerland's first group stage match, Rodriguez would be a good acquisition even if Liverpool would be paying a "successful World Cup player" premium.

Liverpool goalkeeper Brad Jones suffered an injury early in today's match and was replaced by Simon Mignolet.

Jones had won the starting job from Mignolet after subbing in for him earlier in the season due to an injury but it's now an injury to Jones that has forced him off the pitch. Mignolet will be an average fantasy option in the Reds' match against Swansea on Sunday.

American goalkeeper Tim Howard suffered an injury during the team's Boxing Day match against Stoke and was replaced at halftime.

Howard conceded from a questionable penalty earlier in the match and thus ends the day with a bad fantasy score. We don't know much about the injury other than he couldn't continue and we'll have to wait until the end of the match to hear more. Howard was replaced by backup Joel Robles, who could be a solid fantasy choice if the American misses time.

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.

Adrian made the most of a match in which he was constantly under fire by Chelsea's attack, making several saves, but the volume was too much to handle as the Blues would beat him twice and the Hammers would leave Stamford Bridge empty-handed in a 2-0 loss.

Adrian made seven official saves and most of them were of the acrobatic variety. A couple of them came in the game's opening half hour and it allowed West Ham to keep things level until Chelsea finally broke through. The Hammers meanwhile offered very little threat, with their best two chances being supplied by substitute Morgan Amalfitano late on when Chelsea were already sporting a two goal cushion. Though Adrian is bound to have an unappealing fantasy score from this match, he should be a solid buy in kinder fixtures ahead.

Eden Hazard had been deemed doubtful to play on Boxing Day due to a knock he picked up last week but was able to get fit in time and start against West Ham United.

Hazard not only started but shined in the Blues' 2-0 victory. He assisted the second goal of the match to Diego Costa and played the entire 90 minutes. He is still at risk to be rested and Sunday's match against Southampton could be the one. Make sure to have a backup available if you are playing him during this holiday season.

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.
