James Chester scored the winner for Hull City last weekend but this weekend he saw red early forcing his club to play a man down for most of the match.

Hull City will be happy to have gotten a point after playing a man down from the 14th minute on. The Tigers even managed to go up a goal when Nikica Jelavic beat the Stoke City defense to a Tom Huddlestone rebound just before halftime. Hull City fought valiantly to maintain their lead and will be disappointed at the series of events that led to the Ryan Shawcross equalizer in the 83rd minute. Hull City had clearly won a throw in their defensive end but the linesman called it for Stoke who proceeded to put the ball into the box where Shawcross toe-poked it home.

Alan Pardew could be forced into stepping up his search for a new striker after Fraizer Campbell limped out of the friendly win over AFC Wimbledon with a suspected hamstring strain.

Palace are short on numbers in attack after Emmanuel Adebayor and Marouane Chamakh were released at the beginning of the summer. Also, factor the loss of Dwight Gayle, who moved to Newcastle for £10m and Pardew has been left with only one fully fit striker – Connor Wickham – with a Premier League start to his name. The full extent of Campbell’s injury is not yet known, but with a little over two weeks until the season opener against West Brom, the search for a new striker looks set to intensify. Palace have been linked with Christian Benteke, while they continue to monitor the situation with Saido Berahino very closely.

Injuries continue to mount for West Ham after summer signing Gokhan Tore suffered a knee injury in training on Monday.

The Turkish winger, who joined as part of a season long loan deal, missed the Europa League loss to Slovenian side Domzale on Thursday due to injury. Speaking after the match, assistant manager Nikola Jurcevic told the club website that the Besiktas player requires a scan to determine the extent of his problem: "Tore has hurt his knee, but we are not sure how serious. It was a very easy training, but after five minutes he felt some pain in his knee. He will have a scan on Friday and we hope it will not be serious." With Manuel Lanzini and Aaron Cresswell both sidelined and ruled out "for a long time," the Hammers could look to bolster their squad with a little over two-weeks until the start of the new Premier League campaign.

Leicester city has officially announced the signing of left-back Ben Chilwell to a new five-year contract through 2021.

The 19-year-old was expected to go to Liverpool this summer after the club made multiple bids, including a deal potentially woth £7 million after add-ons. Arsenal was also linked with a move for the left-back but Chilwell opted to fight for a first-team spot with the Premier League champions despite not seeing much time last season. Said manager Claudio Ranieri: It’s fantastic news for us. Ben is a player with a big future and I am very happy that future will be with Leicester City. Ever since I arrived in Leicester, Ben has been a young player that has shown a lot of promise. He has all the attributes you would want in a defender and shows a lot of maturity for a player of just 19."

Watford has confirmed the sale of both defender Daniel Pudil and winger Almen Abdi to Sheffield Wednesday.

The move makes sense for Pudil after the Czech Republic international spent much of last season on loan at the Championship side. The center-back made 108 appearances in all competitions during his time at Vicarage Road before last year's loan. But Abdi leaves the club after scoring 25 goals in 130 appearances in all competitions over the course of four years. Last season the Swiss international was a regular starter in the Premier League but looks to have fallen out of favor under new coach Walter Mazzarri.

Sunderland made it four wins on the spin against Dijon on Wednesday, but the victory came at a cost after a muscular problem forced Patrick van Aanholt off early in the second half.

Robbie Stockdale confirmed van Aanholt "felt some groin tightness" although based on initial reports, his withdrawal appears to be precautionary: "There is absolutely no major issues," revealed the first team coach. "Whether we risk him on Saturday will depend on how he settles down over the next couple of days." Jermain Defoe is certain to miss out though, with the striker a doubt for the remainder of the preseason programme after suffering a thigh strain in training. However, and despite ongoing tests, the club remain confident he will be ready to face Manchester City in game week one. "At the moment it’s probably too early to say and we don’t think it’s anything serious, but obviously with a player like Jermain you don’t to take any risks."

Gary Cahill grabbed the only goal in a hard fought International Champions Cup game in Pasadena as Chelsea beat Liverpool 1-0 at the Rose Bowl.

However, speaking post-match, Jürgen Klopp revealed his "biggest problem" was the loss of young Serbian midfielder Marko Grujic following a sickening clash of heads with Chelsea’s Bertrand Traore. "He is in hospital, because he can't remember anything. That's not too cool. Hopefully it's not too serious but of course a young boy in this situation is not too cool." Daniel Sturridge missed the defeat, instead, club physios decided to provide additional fitness work at the clubs’ training camp in Palo Alto while Nathaniel Clyne was not risked because of a minor hamstring problem. Both players could face Milan on Sunday but Belgium international strikers Divock Origi and Christian Benteke are not yet ready following their summer exertions at Euro 2016.

After a few actions by Mamadou Sakho that Jurgen Klopp deemed to show a "lack of respect", the Liverpool manager sent the defender home early from the club's preseason tour of the United States.

It has been a series of unfortunate events for Sakho in recent months, but while he was cleared from a doping violation and cannot be blamed for injuring his heel, there is no one to fault but the Frenchman for his behavior since the club embarked on their preseason tour. First, he missed the flight to the US, then he was AWOL from a training session and then was late for a meal with his teammates. Klopp was quoted as saying that the situation was "not that serious" and that he hasn't given up on Sakho. However, one has to think this only takes a serious hit to his status in the center back depth chart. Had the summer been free of incident, despite the additions of Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan, Sakho looked poised to be the Week 1 starter in partnership with Dejan Lovren. Now, it could easily be one of Matip or Klavan to take the spot away.

Bournemouth has completed the signing of yet another Liverpool player this summer in defender Brad Smith.

The 22-year-old left-back joins the Cherries on a four-year contract in a move reported to be in the £6 million range. The Australian international had one year left on his contract but had previously fallen out of favor at the club following the appointment of Jurgen Klopp. Smith follows fellow academy product Jordon Ibe to to south coast after the winger competed a £15 million move. Said chief executive Neill Blake said, "I am delighted to confirm that we have completed a deal to bring Brad to the football club. "Brad broke through at Anfield last season and impressed whenever he was called upon."

Harry Maguire is being pursued by Middlesbrough, who have made a £4m bid.

Maguire is a young prospect who plays for the England U21 team and started 25 games for Hull City last season. He is likely going to make it to the Premier League sooner rather than later even if the move to Middlesbrough doesn't work. He would be a likely started if he made the move now.

Virgil Van Dijk played well and scored in Southampton's 2-1 win over FC Twente.

There were rumors sending Van Dijk to other Premier League clubs but he is currently still on Southampton's roster and playing well. He is guaranteed to start, and he will contribute random goals throughout the season like the one he scored today. The other Southampton goal came from Sam Gallagher, who will likely earn a bigger role as a backup for the Saints this season.

Swansea have inquired about Leicester City striker Leonardo Ulloa.

Ulloa played backup for Jamie Vardy but was very effective off the bench and as a replacement for Vardy when injuries struck late in the season. There are multiple teams inquiring about him, and Swansea need a striker after selling Alberto Paloschi and parting ways with Bafetimbi Gomis. This would be a great fit and Ulloa would be a good late-round pick if he ends up with Swansea.
