Robbie Brady had a difficult first season in the Premier League due to a hernia injury and his second season is off to a rocky start after he didn't feature in Hull City's Europa Cup first leg match.

With Robert Snodgrass and Tom Ince both added over the summer, it appears that Robbie Brady's place in the squad has suffered if Europa Cup playing time is any indicator. None of the three "flair" players started the match with David Myler, Tom Huddlestone, Jake Livermore and Gedo taking those honors. In the late-going it was Snodgrass and Ince who came off the bench while Brady watched on from the sidelines. It is only one match but those hoping for a reprise of his great start last season may be disappointed in his lack of playing time.

Everton kept up their solid home form with another win and clean sheet, their third straight in each department, today disposing of Burnley, 1-0.

It looked like a potential disaster for the Toffees in this one just 10 minutes in, when Aaron Lennon was brought down by David Jones and a penalty was awarded, though it appeared Lennon wasn't quite all the way in the area. For unknown reasons, Ross Barkley took the spot kick and it was saved rather easily by Tom Heaton, causing the Goodison Park crowd to understandably grown. Mirallas would help put that event past them though on the half hour mark. He collected a McCarthy cross that touched Arouna Kone on the way over and slotted home at the far post, though he scuffed his original kick. The Toffees couldn't seal the points with an additional goal but their ability to keep the Clarets out was aided by Ashley Barnes' sending off just before the break, giving Everton the man advantage for the final 45.

James Morrison scored two minutes into West Brom's Week 33 match-up with Crystal Palace and the Baggies didn't look back as they won 2-0 at Selhurst Park.

No one saw this coming. Crystal Palace had been red hot for weeks while West Brom had been struggling mightily for the past three weeks. Throw in that Palace were at home and it looked like an easy home win. James Morrison flipped the script within two minutes as he scored from a Chris Brunt corner. Morrison was entirely unmarked in the middle of the penalty area. Craig Gardner sealed the victory in the 53rd minute with a blast from 25 plus yards out and West Brom soaked up Palace's huge possession advantage for the 2-0 win.

Burnley have their backs against the relegation wall today after losing to Everton 1-0

The Claret ship is beginning to leak major water at just the wrong time, as Leicester City have hit a positive run of form while they themselves have gone four straight without scoring. They certainly played up for it and Kieran Trippier was his usual self, delivering plenty of balls to set up the likes of Danny Ings, but they were dealt a devastating blow just seconds before the halftime whistle when Ashley Barnes was booked for his second yellow, seeing him off the pitch. An anemic attack could ill-afford to lose one of their front line players and opportunities in the second half completely dries up as Toffee keeper Tim Howard was hardly bothered. It's not over yet for Sean Dyche's men, they have Sunderland and Leicester yet on the schedule, so they still have a say int their fate.

Tony Pulis won the battle with the club he saved from relegation last season as West Brom beat Crystal Palace 2-0 at Selhurst Park.

Yaya Sanogo had a goal called back and Yannick Bolasie had an audacious attempt denied as Crystal Palace couldn't convert 68% possession into even a single goal as West Brom beat them 2-0 at Selhurst Park. The Eagles had a major defensive breakdown early as James Morrison found himself all alone in the area for a headed goal in the second minute. Palace fought valiantly but despite their superior possession, they saw Craig Gardner score from long distance for the final 2-0 scoreline.

Loic Remy remains questionable for gameweek 33 with a calf injury.

Jose Mourinho stated today that he "doesn't know" if Remy will be fit for the derby against Manchester United this weekend but has a better than 50/50 chance. That tells us almost nothing about who will start against Manchester so we would recommend avoiding both Remy and Didier Drogba in leagues where the lineups lock at the first match. Hopefully Remy plays at least some part of this match and is then nailed on as a starter for the double gameweek coming up in week 34.

Marc Wilson is doubtful for Stoke City's match with Southampton as he recovers from a hip injury picked up against West Ham last weekend.

Marc Wilson has had a rough 2015 so far with injuries and it may well continue in Week 33 after he picked up a hip injury against West Ham last weekend. With Wilson potentially out, Erik Pieters is likely to return to the starting line-up. With Southampton a strong opponent neither Wilson nor Pieters has a ton of value and even less so given the uncertainty between the two.

Victor Moses has been ruled out for the balance of the season with a hamstring injury picked up in Week 32.

Stoke City's attack has been hit with another season-ending injury as Victor Moses has been ruled out for the season. The injury effectively ends a very successful loan spell for Moses at Stoke City. The club will likely make a big summer push to make the move permanent with the player also likely being willing as a push into the Chelsea first team seems highly unlikely regardless of how well the season at Stoke City went. For the rest of this season, it may open up more playing time for Marko Arnautovic.

Brown Ideye continues to suffer from a lingering knee injury and will be assessed ahead of Week 33's trip to Selhurst Park.

West Brom have been terrible for three matches running and Tony Pulis will look to any and all options as he looks to rebound against the club he saved from relegation a season ago. Pulis played Ideye last weekend in the loss to Leicester City but any and all positions in the starting line-up have to be considered up for grabs based on recent poor performance. With Ideye still not fully fit his might be the first position under scrutiny.

Radamel Falcao has struggled mightily this season but Louis Van Gaal might be forced to start him due to the injury crisis United is suffering.

Falcao has gone from world superstar to human victory cigar in what seems like record time since his arrival at Old Trafford. Week 33 could represent a chance at some small measure of redemption. With Wayne Rooney potentially forced back into midfield to cope with the absences of Carrick and Blind and RvP just returning to fitness, Falcao could start at forward for Manchester United at Stamford Bridge. It's certainly no guarantee but for those invested in the Colombian hitman at least there's a chance.

Scans have revealed a grade two hamstring strain for Swansea City striker Bafetimbi Gomis, giving him a three to four week timetable for recovery.

Gomis came off the pitch last weekend in the Swans match against Everton after seventeen minutes, with Marvin Emnes replacing him. Nelson Oliveira and Emnes are the two candidates to fill in for Gomis, as Oliveira has recovered from his own injury to give Garry Monk a selection decision. The uncertainty of who will be selected means any thought of investing in a budget forward option here too risky. Monk may use the situation to alternate starts between the two, as both have logged very few minutes in league play on the season. Whoever gets the start against Leicester though, has the opportunity to perform well enough to stay there for the next few matches.

Callum McManaman has been passed fit for action as West Brom travel to Selhurst Park in Week 33 Premier League action.

McManaman hasn't contributed much since his arrival from Wigan in January having missed significant time due to injuries. He has now recovered from a foot injury that seemed to drag on and on and is fit for action. It seems unlikely that he will be thrust right back into the starting line-up but with West Brom playing poorly, anything is possible as Tony Pulis looks to shake things up. Still, fantasy managers should view McManaman as a tertiary option at best.
