West Ham continued to struggle in pre-season matches as they lost 2-0 to Malaga.

West Ham have been fairly solid defensively, especially when they have their first team on the pitch, but have struggled to score goals once again as Andy Carroll continues to be injured. To make things worse, new signing Enner Valencia will not be fit for the beginning of the season. Mauro Zarate will be relied on for goals once the season starts and could be a decent fantasy choice for adventurous fantasy managers, although the Hammers' poor pre-season form is making him a dangerous player to own.

Toby Alderweireld should be available for Southampton in week 28.

Alderweireld was out for seven weeks with a hamstring issue but is finally deemed fit and should be available for selection against Crystal Palace in midweek. It's a bit risky to use Alderweireld in fantasy due to the fact he might come off the bench since he hasn't played in such a long time, but he'll be a great choice starting next week.

Graziano Pelle could lose his starting job after a series of horrible performances.

Pelle has been absolutely horrific in recent weeks and just can't finish regardless of how good his chances have been. Ronald Koeman might choose to bench him in favor of Shane Long or another one of his winger/forward options. Regardless of whether he plays, we recommend not using Pelle in fantasy during this rough stretch.

Mile Jedinak has been charged by the FA for violent conduct for allegedly hitting Diafra Sakho last weekend.

The referee didn't see the incident but it was caught on camera and Jedinak was later charged by the FA. he has been given a four-match ban but he has the option to challenge the charge before 6 pm on Tuesday. Steer clear of Jedinak this week and be ready to find a replacement for four weeks if the charge stands. The ban is four matches instead of three because this would be his second red-card of the season.

Sunderland have both Wes Brown and John O'Shea available for the vital Week 28 clash at Hull, but are struggling with other absences.

Sunderland quite rightly won their appeal against the sending-off of Brown although his availability won’t guarantee any game time – the defender struggles to play consecutive games in quick succession. O’Shea will not face any retrospective action and he could partner Santiago Vergini or Seb Coates in the heart of defence if Gus Poyet decides the risk with Brown is too great. Will Buckley [knee] and Emanuele Giaccherini [ankle] are the only injury absentees but Adam Johnson has been suspended pending a further enquiry into his alleged relations with an underage girl. Billy Jones, Jack Rodwell and Ricky Alvarez are back in contention.

Crystal Palace are facing a striker shortage for Week 28 as they look to keep up their fine form at Southampton.

Palace will be full of confidence having comfortably brushed West Ham aside but the Eagles are suffering from a striker shortage as Glenn Murray serves a one game ban joining injured trio Marouane Chamakh, Yaya Sanogo and Fraizer Campbell [all hamstring] on the sidelines. Dwight Gayle is likely to be the lone frontman in a 4-5-1 with Wilfried Zaha and Yannick Bolasie supporting but Shola Ameobi is available should Pardew prefer a 4-4-2 formation. Jordan Mutch [thigh] will miss out after limping off at the Boleyn Ground while his replacement James McArthur should retain his place. Mile Jedinak has until 6pm [GMT] on Tuesday to respond to an FA charge of violent conduct following his alleged elbow on Diafra Sakho.

Queens Park Rangers will be missing two key midfielders for the London derby with Arsenal in Week 28.

QPR arrive back from a week of warm weather training in Dubai fully refreshed following their extended break and the Hoops will be looking to end Arsenal’s seven game winning streak. Joey Barton [suspended] is out for three matches and with Leroy Fer sidelined until April Chris Ramsey may be tempted to throw the fit-again Sandro straight back into the fray. Nedum Onuoha and Mauricio Isla are close to a return but Darnell Furlong should retain his place after making his debut at the KC Stadium in GW26.

Manuel Pellegrini is likely to freshen up his line-up after back to back defeats for Manchester City.

Pellegrini will be hoping to forget Sundays’ disappointment and get his title challenge back on track and realistically City can ill-afford any further slip-ups. Wilfried Bony is still waiting for his first start since joining from Swansea but with Edin Dzeko scoring in back-to-back game weeks the Bosnian looks to be the preferred strike partner of Sergio Aguero on current form. Other possible changes are likely to occur at full-back where Gael Clichy and Bacary Sagna could be swapped for Zabaleta and Kolarov while Eliaquim Mangala may step aside for Martin Demichelis. In midfield Jesus Navas, James Milner and Fernando all have a case but realistically only Fernandinho is at risk unless the Chilean coach reverts back to his preferred 4-5-1 formation.

Tottenham and QPR both have a double gameweek in week 28.

Tottenham and QPR were both out of action in week 27 due to Tottenham's Capital One Cup final against Chelsea so they are making up their game this week. This gives both teams' players two chances to earn fantasy points and it's generally a wise idea to stack up on double gameweeks whenever possible. Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen, Danny Rose, and Charlie Austin are some good options for the double week.

Ron Vlaar is questionable for Tuesday's match against West Brom with an injury.

Vlaar served a suspension in gameweek 27 and now is in danger of missing week 28 through an injury. Tim Sherwood has labeled him "touch and go", so it's not exactly clear whether he'll be able to play on Tuesday. Avoid him in fantasy for the week, especially with Villa not being able to keep any clean sheets lately. Kieran Richardson and Phillippe Senderos continue to be out while Alan Hutton and Aly Cissokho are doubts.

England and Sunderland footballer Adam Johnson has been arrested on suspicion of sex with a 15-year-old girl.

Durham Police said in a statement: "A 27-year-old man was arrested earlier today on suspicion of sexual activity with a girl under 16. He remains in police custody and is helping officers with their enquiries." Sunderland have since announced Johnson has been suspended by the club pending the outcome of the police investigation. You should avoid selecting the player for your fantasy team for the foreseeable future.

The Football Association has rescinded Sunderland defender Wes Brown's red card in his side's 2-0 defeat at Manchester United on Saturday.

In a case of mistaken identities, Wes Brown was sent off instead of teammate John O'Shea as Sunderland dropped a 2-0 decision at Old Trafford on Saturday. However, the decision has been overturned by the FA. "An independent regulatory commission has upheld a claim of wrongful dismissal," read an FA statement. "Therefore, his one-match ban has been withdrawn with immediate effect." The Black Cats have avoided a ban for either player as Brown's red card will not be transferred to O'Shea and both are available to boss Gus Poyet for the match at Hull on Tuesday.
