Aston Villa have been relatively quiet in the transfer market but appear close to signing former Liverpool loanee Aly Cissokho to replace Ryan Bertrand after his loan spell expired.

Aston Villa need to strengthen significantly if they hope to avoid a relegation scrape this season. The club did not play well after Christian Benteke's injury and have done little to inspire hope so far this summer. Anyone who saw Aly Cissokho last season will be hard pressed to improve their opinion of Villa's transfer activities if the Valencia man is the next big move.

Crystal Palace will have to do without attacking midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek for the next couple weeks, the club confirmed.

The Chelsea loanee has missed the last three Premier League matches due to a knock and will need more time to recover, according to manager Roy Hodgson. However, Hodgson confirmed that defender Joel Ward is back fit after a month out with a groin injury while Yohan Cabaye has also regained full fitness. Said the manager: "Joel Ward has been back in training for ten days so he is available but Ruben Loftus-Cheek is facing another 2-3 weeks on the sidelines and then will be reassessed and that could be a negative assessment for him so that is a major concern."

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said he is hoping to offer Jack Wilshere a new contract after his recent performances.

Wilshere is entering the final months of his contract and rumors have swirled about his next move. But Wenger confirmed his intention to keep the 26-year-old at the club if the right deal can be reached: "We know what we want," said Wenger. "We want him to stay and extend after that. We have to find out if he wants to stay and then after that we have to find satisfying financial agreement with Jack that is good for him. That's what we're trying to do."

Arsene Wenger has admitted that want-away Alexis Sanchez's proposed move to Manchester United is "likely to happen".

Wenger spoke about a number of transfer issues at a press conference on Thursday including the deal for the Chilean. He added that the inclusion of a swap for Henrikh Mkhitaryan within the deal was "possible". However the Arsenal boss was still wary of the deal breaking down, explaining that he knows you can never be sure from his past experiences. The Frenchman also spoke about his own move's to beef up his own squad. He would not go so far as to say a deal for Dortmund striker Aubameyang was close to completion but he was happy to say that the Gabonese would "fit in" to the side. Wenger also suggested a deal for Bordeaux's Malcom is not close and admitted an interest in West Brom's Jonny Evans.

Swansea won at home for just the third time in 2017/18 with a 2-1 victory over Championship high-flyers Wolves.

A largely drab affair was lit up by one moment of quality from Jordan Ayew which led to the Swans taking an early lead. He managed to navigate a course through five Wolves defenders from outside the box, over to the left, and then across to the centre near the penalty spot before finishing calmly. He now has four goals in seven games and has shown a marked improvement since moving to the second striker role away from the left wing where he was stationed for much of the season. The Championship side came out strong after the interval and grabbed an equaliser through Diogo Jota but Bony won the battle to strike a loose ball in the box to regain the Welsh club's lead. Swansea advance to face Notts County in the next round of the FA Cup, though their priority remains securing PL survival.

Bournemouth were humiliated by League One club Wigan Athletic as they were eliminated from the FA Cup on a 3-0 scoreline in their Third Round replay.

Bournemouth had fought hard to secure a replay after going two goals down at home in the previous fixture, although they could offer no such heroics this time. Morsy put the hosts ahead after 9 minutes and the Premier League side could not muster a response as Burn and Elder extended that lead. Ryan Fraser went closest in the second half but Wigan's 'keeper was equal to his effort. Eddie Howe was angry in the aftermath of crashing out of the cup to League One opposition for the second consecutive season, knowing well that making eight changes from the side that beat Arsenal at the weekend was not an excuse for such a poor performance: "We underperformed. "Right now it feels tough. When you lose any game, you want your players to feel hurt." The Cherries have now not won an away game since November 4th.

Brighton and Hove Albion skipper Bruno Saltor is optimistic in spite of the mounting pressure as the south coast side slip towards the drop zone.

Last weekend's 2-0 loss to West Brom sent the Seagulls tumbling down the PL table from 12th to 16th, and they are now just three points outside the relegation zone. They will need to turn around their form quickly as they have won just once in their last twelve games. Speaking to The Argus, Bruno said: "We knew it wasn’t going to be easy to be in the Premier League... We have been fighting for the last few seasons and we keep fighting." Albion face Chelsea this weekend in another tough test, though their chances have been boosted after Morata and Pedro were both sent off in The Blues' midweek cup game and the pair are now suspended for the visit to the AMEX.

Big news out of Burnley FC as the club has announced that Tom Heaton has returned to training following a shoulder injury that has kept him out since September.

The return of the club captain will be a welcome one, though Heaton's absence allowed another keeper, Nick Pope, to emerge as a top flight-level net-minder. Because Pope has fared so well, one would expect the club to not rush Heaton back to competitive action. That said, Heaton is the clear #1, even pushing to be England's #1 before injury, so the countdown clock on Pope's fantasy relevance is on. Heaton is definitely worth a stash now if you have room to do so in draft leagues.

Chelsea advanced into the fourth round of the FA Cup with penalty shootout victory over Norwich after Pedro and substitute Alvaro Morata were sent off in a frenetic extra time period.

Michy Batshuayi had given Chelsea the lead in the 55th minute, but Norwich leveled deep into injury-time when 19-year-old Jamal Lewis headed home from Timm Klose's cross. With the match in extra time, Pedro was first to go after picking up his second yellow card of the night having already been booked for a dive. The Blues were then reduced to nine men shortly thereafter when Morata was sent to stands for a bad protest to being booked for diving himself. Chelsea did survive penalties to secure a fourth-round tie against Newcastle, however, Pedro and Morata will be suspended with the club already stretched. Without the pair this weekend, Batshuayi and Willian are in line to start against Brighton.

Chelsea defeated Norwich 5-3 on penalties to reach the fourth round of the FA Cup after a 1-1 draw in Wednesday's third-round replay at Stamford Bridge.

Michy Batshuayi snapped Chelsea's three-match goal drought in the 55th minute when he converted Kenedy's cross from close. However, home side's night was forced into extra time just before the death. Norwich youngster Jamal Lewis stepped into the spotlight and headed home a cross deep into injury to force an extra 30 minutes. Chelsea would however prevail despite the dismissal of Pedro and substitute Alvaro Morata in extra time, as Willy Caballero saved the Canaries' first penalty effort to send Chelsea them into the fourth round.
