Shocking news from The Mirror who are reporting that NYCFC will loan Frank Lampard to parent club Manchester City.

With the expansion MLS not set to start play until March 2015, there have been questions about what Lampard will do in the meantime. The Mirror are reporting that the Chelsea legend will be loaned to the defending champions. The move brings up all sorts of potential concerns with City's ownership of multiple clubs and how they could all be used strategically to skirt league rules in all countries they operate in.

Huddersfield Town could potentially be without all three of their top forward for Saturday's trip to Burnley.

Town will definitely be without leading scorer Steve Mounie, who remains sidelined after missing the last two matches with a heel problem, and long-term absentee Collin Quaner (knee) for this weekend's trip to Turf Moor. The absence of Mounie would normally result in a start for Laurent Depoitre, who scored on his full debut last weekend, but manager Steve Wagner revealed the Belgian is a doubt with a minor muscle strain. If Depoitre is ruled out, Elias Kachunga could move from his wide right position to fill the Number 9 role. Wagner's other alternatives would be Abdelhamid Sabiri, who started and assisted from the Number 10 role against Leicester City, or winger Ravij van La Parra.

Everton will have to wait a little bit longer than expected for the return of Seamus Coleman and Yannick Bolasie.

The duo has missed much of the past year recovering from long-term injuries, and while the club is reluctant to put a timeframe on their respective returns, manager Ronald Koeman confirmed that they are not expected back until November. "I think it will be November, instead of October. They are both working hard, going in the right direction but it's long-term injuries. Seamus is out a long time, but they are doing well, going well on their schedule to come back but it's not up to me, we expect them back in full training in November."

Watford will breath a temporary sigh of relief after news this week that Younes Kaboul doesn't require surgery.

The former Spurs and Sunderland defender missed last weekend's match with Manchester City after suffering a hamstring injury against Southampton in Gameweek 4. While initially thought to be serious, doctors revealed that Kaboul will not require surgery, said the club in a statement: "Younès has now had his follow-up ultrasound scan with a specialist that has determined that surgery is not required for his rehabilitation. His rehab work, which will be extensive, has already begun with us at the training ground."

Manchester City confirmed that midfielder Ilkay Gundogan has avoided another serious injury after Tuesday's scare.

Said the club in a statement: "It is too early at this stage to give an exact time-frame on his absence but he is expected to be back on the training field in the coming days."The German international was subbed off before the hour mark in his first start since last December in the club's League Cup win against West Brom. Gundogan has missed the last nine months with a knee injury before returning over the weekend, but concerns were alleviated after scans revealed he only suffered a minor sprain.

Pedro Obiang was rested for Tuesday's 3-0 Carabao Cup win over Bolton but won't be available for Saturday's Premier League clash against Tottenham.

Manager Slaven Bilic revealed in his pre-match press conference that Obiang picked up an injury at West Brom last weekend and won't be fit to face Spurs. However, Bilic insisted that the Spanish midfielder's injury wasn't serious and added he could be back in contention for the game against Swansea City next Saturday. The absence of Obiang should see Cheikhou Kouyate and skipper Mark Noble, who made his return from a knee knock in the midweek cup win, resume their partnership in central midfield for the crucial clash at the London Stadium. Meanwhile, Saturday will come too soon for the return of James Collins (ankle) and Manuel Lanzini (hamstring).

Chelsea have announced they have agreed terms with Atletico Madrid for the transfer of Diego Costa, who will complete the move in January when the La Liga club's transfer ban comes to an end.

The 28-year-old has finally gotten his move back to Atletico, where he spent four years before joining Chelsea in July 2014 after Chelsea activated his £32m buy-out clause. The Spain international scored 58 goals in 120 appearances during his stay at Stamford Bridge and played a integral role in two Premier League titles. But despite scoring 20 goals in 35 league appearances last season as Chelsea cruised to the Premier League title, Costa was deemed expendable by manager Antonio Conte in the summer following multiple spats during the campaign. A statement on Chelsea's website said: "Chelsea Football Club has today agreed terms with Atletico Madrid for the transfer of Diego Costa. The transfer will be subject to the agreement of personal terms and a medical."

Calum Chambers came off at halftime of Arsenal's Carabao Cup win over Doncaster Rovers with a recurrence of his hip injury. Arsene Wenger indicated that he would be out through the October international break.

Chambers was just breaking back into the line-up after sitting out the early season with a hip issue as well as associated fitness issues associated with the hip injury. Chambers looked solid against lower division opposition in the first half yesterday but will apparently have to wait until mid-October to continue his quest to reestablish himself in the first team where a center back role seems to be available next to Laurent Koscielny and Shkodran Mustafi.

Mesut Ozil was not used in either of Arsenal's past two matches due to a "minor knee inflammation" and Arsene Wenger moved to affirm his status as healthy and available for training and the West Brom match at the weekend.

Mesut Ozil has long been a polarizing figure at Arsenal. Two seasons ago his seeming lack of effort and grit were balanced by a near-record assist-making pace. Last season his production was down significantly but the effort/body language were no better leading many to call for a sale/replacement. This season has started even more poorly for the German international with things getting bad enough that Arsene Wenger hold out his most creative player with a "minor knee inflammation" for the club's match against defending champions Chelsea. It seems like something that most players would have fought through. It sounds like Ozil should be back for West Brom on Monday but there is at least a slight doubt that lingers.

Marcus Rashford (2), Jesse Lingard, and Anthony Martial all got their names on the scoresheet as Manchester United eased past Burton Albion in the Carabao Cup 3rd Round.

Only Rashford and Juan Mata remained from the team which started against Everton on Saturday, with Romero and Carrick making their season bows. Rashford put United ahead after Carrick's driven pass along the floor was spun into the path of Rashford by Jesse Lingard. The young England international provided a composed chipped finish to beat Ripley. He had his brace before the 20th minute, utilising the momentum created by spinning his marker to drive a shot in from 20 yards. United's third followed soon after on 36' when Lingard's heavily deflected effort found its way into the Burton net. Luke Shaw made his first appearance of the season off the bench in the second-half and he showed plenty of attacking intent. As did Anthony Martial who had been a thorn in Burton's side all evening. The Frenchman took his goal well in the second half but could have had three. Burton got a late consolation in injury time thanks to sub GK Pereira dropping the ball.

Burnley have signed free agent goalkeeper Anders Lindergaard to a contract that will last until the end of this season.

Lindegaard was once a part of the final seasons at Manchester United with Sir Alex Ferguson in charge, but since has been fading farther and farther away from top flight action. He joined West Brom in 2015 but was loaned out to Preston North End, where he last saw action. Nick Pope has done an adequate job thus far in place of the injured Tom Heaton, so one would assume Pope will have to have a bad game for Lindegaard to get a shot at run in the side. He is not worth a roster spot in any fantasy format at this point, even owners of Heaton in draft leagues.

Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan sustained yet another knee injury in Wednesday's League Cup win.

The German international crumpled to the ground after a tackle from Claudio Yacob in the 58th minute of a 2-1 win. It was Gundogan's first start since last December, when he suffered a torn ACL, after he returned to action over the weekend against Watford. "(Gundogan) has a small issue with his knee but not like before and I don’t think it will be anything serious," Guardiola told the media after the match.
