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.

Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil both started and scored for Arsenal in their 3-2 FA Cup fourth round win over Brighton but it was Tomas Rosicky that stole the show.

Tomas Rosicky has experienced something of a resurrection over the past month at Arsenal. He has enjoyed both good health and great form, a combination that has eluded him for most of his lengthy tenure at Arsenal. In the FA Cup fourth round tie at the AmEx stadium in Brighton, the Czech creator pulled the strings for Arsenal's attack as well as scoring a goal the likes of which we haven't seen from him since the 2006 World Cup against the United States. If Rosicky can stay healthy he will be a great piece to the Arsenal rotation as they fight to retain their FA Cup and finish in a Champions League spot in the league.

Ben Foster was hoping for an easy day on Saturday as Tony Pulis confirmed back-up stopper Boaz Myhill would get the nod for the fourth round away tie at Birmingham in the FA Cup.

However a collision with Blues centre-forward Lloyd Dyer left the reserve goalkeeper with a split finger and suspected dislocation which required stitches and an X-ray. Although minor the injury could potentially keep Myhill out for a few weeks and with Ben Foster as the only other experienced first team keeper his absence will be a concern. Pulis will wait for further assessments / test results before deciding his next steps but with a week of the transfer window still to go the Baggies boss could yet bring in a fresh face.

Liam Moore has had limited first team opportunities in the Premier League recently having failed to start a game since early December but Nigel Pearson does like to use his defender in the FA Cup.

Moore was starting his second domestic cup tie this month although it maybe his lack of sharpness which brought about the opening goal in yesterdays’ fourth round tie at White Hart Lane – the Foxes defender was drawn into a clumsy challenge by Roberto Soldado giving the referee no other option than to award a penalty. His misery was further compounded five minutes later after he was booked before an ankle injury ended his afternoon on 26 minutes – Marcin Wasilewski his replacement. Moore will be assessed but Pearson does have a number of defensive options and with Matthew Upson close to a return his availability will add some valuable experience and cover during the season run in.

Garry Monk cut a forlorn figure at Ewood Park on Saturday as his Swansea side crashed out of the FA Cup but the home side were helped by a contentious refereeing decision early in the game.

Kyle Bartley was adjudged to have committed a professional foul on opposition striker Josh King after just six minutes and his sending-off effectively levelled the game as a contest for the Championship team. Despite a thunderous Gylfi Sigurdsson strike to put the Jacks ahead Swansea were unable to maintain their lead and as fatigue began to play its part Rovers were able to step up and progress through to the fifth round. Swansea ended the match with just nine men as the frustrated Sigurdsson lunged with no intention of playing the ball in injury time. The referee awarded a straight red card for serious foul play – an offence which carries an automatic three game ban.

Chelsea were stunned by League One Bradford City at Stamford Bridge as the allowed the Bantams to come from two goals down to win 4-2 in the Fourth Round of the FA Cup

No Premier League team has taken points from Chelsea at Stamford Bridge this season but League One club Bradford City responded to Gary Cahill and Ramires goals in the first half by scoring four unanswered to win at the Bridge. Chelsea Manager said it would be a "disgrace" if his side were to exit the competition early to lower division opposition and disgraced they were. Jon Stead, former Chelsea trainee Filipe Morais, Andy Halliday, and Mark Yeates scored for the Bantams. The magic of the FA Cup lives.

Middlesbrough produce shock as they beat Manchester City 2-0 at the Etihad Stadium.

Patrick Bamford’s goal in the early stages of the second half put Boro ahead and substitute Kike doubled the lead in stoppage time to take the Championship side into the last 16. Although there were opportunities for Willy Caballero and Dedryck Boyata, City boss Manuel Pellegrini named a strong side that included the likes of Vincent Kompany, David Silva and Sergio Aguero. Pellegrini turned to Fernandinho and Frank Lampard in an attempt to salvage something, but this time the woodwork came to Boro’s rescue instead. City, Chelsea, Tottenham and Southampton have all been eliminated from the FA Cup.

Villarreal have reached agreement with Arsenal for the sale of center-back Gabriel Paulista, with the Gunners forward Joel Campbell heading to the Spanish club on loan for the rest of the season.

The deal was agreed on Saturday evening, shortly before Villarreal's Primera Division match against Levante kicked off at El Madrigal. It comes at a good time for Campbell who has made just four appearances for the club this season, totaling 41 minutes in all.

West Ham’s Ravel Morrison has agreed to join Italian side Lazio on a free transfer at the end of the Premier League season.

Morrison’s deal expires in the summer and he has agreed to a contract with the Serie A side, although he has not formally signed yet. He was signed by the Hammers on a three-and-a-half year deal in January 2012, but his career has stalled a little since his arrival and he has been sent to three different clubs on loan. Several teams in Europe have reportedly expressed an interest in signing Morrison during the current transfer window, but it looks like he has opted to let his contract expire before departing Upton Park.

Shane Long left Southampton's FA Cup match earlier today with suspected broken ribs.

This is another big blow for a Southampton team already thin at the forward position. If Long has indeed broken his ribs, you can expect to see a lot more of James Ward-Prowse and Eljero Elia in the coming weeks, both of them proving to be fantastic fantasy options when on the pitch. Check back later for a timeline on Long's absense.

Andre Schurrle missed Chelsea's FA Cup match with a back problem.

Jose Mourinho confirmed that Schurrle felt a little pain in his back today and that's the reason he missed out on the FA Cup match. Schurrle hasn't been able to crack Chelsea's rotation this season and his fantasy value is practically zero at the moment. There are rumors sending him back to Germany during the January transfer window, so you shouldn't hurry to add him in any fantasy league right now. If he somehow ends up on a different Premier League team, he should be added in fantasy immediately.

Chelsea loanee Patrick Bamford scored early in the second half from a scramble in front of net and Kike settled it late as Middlesbrough stunned Manchester City at the Etihad.

City are truly struggling as they went from dropping points in consecutive Premier League matches to losing to Championship Middlesbrough in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Saturday. The loss is disappointing but not nearly as disappointing as how poorly City played. One potential goal from a deflected Kolarov shot hit the post late and the referee missed a hand ball in the box from a Boro defender but beyond those two incidents there wasn't much from City who started a number of first team players including Sergio Aguero and David Silva.
