Queens Park Rangers ran into a buzzsaw at White Hart Lane today as they were thoroughly beaten by Tottenham in a 4-0 final.

Well, Leroy Fer made his debut. That much can be said. Nevermind that he managed to pick up a caution and was subbed off rather early. It was just an awful day for QPR. Harry Redknapp's tactics were completely ineffective as his players were leaving Spurs wide open and providing little pressure on them. They had one decent attacking chance from Matt Phillips, but it sailed over the bar. Outside of Steven Caulker, who just racks up fantasy points regardless of how poor the team he plays for is, there is nothing attractive about their prospects right now. They need a guy like Mutch to start making some noise.

The controversial choice by Kevin Mirallas to take spot kick duties away from Leighton Baines in Everton's previous league match against West Brom and subsequent removal later in the match apparently has been settled in the locker room and Mirallas should be available for selection when the Toffees face Palace tomorrow.

One thing is for sure, you will not be seeing anyone taking penalties for the Toffees when Leighton Baines is on the pitch except for Leighton Baines. His record there is solid and everyone except Mirallas was aware of that before the incident two weekends ago. Now the word on the street is that Mirallas is angling for a move away from Goodison Park, with Spurs already being rumored as a potential new home, but Everton will probably wait to unload him in the summer. It would be in Mirallas' best interest to swallow some pride, chalk up the mistake and play hard for Roberto Martinez. The irony is that his sizzling form is what probably led to the incident to begin with. If he doesn't start tomorrow, Everton can say it is due to nothing more than a hamstring issue, but realistically it would imply that he is firmly in the doghouse, not the physio room.

Tony Pulis indicated that Callum Mcmanaman will go straight into the squad for Week 23.

Pulis is hoping McManaman will provide a wide attacking presence that has been mostly missing for Albion this season. Fantasy managers will have to worry about the possibility that McManaman will start on the bench but given that he is in form there is every reason to expect that he will get his first start.

Mame Biram Diouf is available to Mark Hughes after returning from the African Cup of Nations.

With Bojan out for the rest of the season with a knee injury Mark Hughes will be happy to have Diouf back in the line-up for the visit of Queens Park Rangers on Saturday. Diouf may not play the entire match due to travel-related fatigue but he is likely to figure in some way.

Louis Van Gaal will be missing Michael Carrick for a month with a muscle injury.

Manchester United's revival corresponded with Carrick's return to the line-up. Their ability to win without him will be tested with the midfielder likely out until early March. With Darren Fletcher rumored to be departing Marouane Fellaini and Daley Blind are likely to get more playing time.

Maya Yoshida and Florin Gardos are in a battle to earn a start in Southampton's match against Swansea this weekend.

Yoshida just returned from international duty and will be challenging Gardos for a start. Gardos was benched earlier this month for playing poorly, but he looked much better once Yoshida was out for international duty. This will likely be a mystery up until lineups are announced and we don't feel good with either defender in formats where you can't change the lineup up until kickoff.

Sadio Mane could be fit to face Swansea on Sunday.

The Southampton was injured while on international duty but is now back and could challenge Eljero Elia and James Ward-Prowse for a starting spot. Elia played well during Mane's absence but wasn't as exceptional as he's hyped up to be and Mane will certainly challenge him for a starting spot. It's hard to trust either one in fantasy at the moment as they're likely to be rotated as the season goes on.

Chelsea striker Diego Costa has been banned for three matches after stamping on Liverpool's Emre Can.

No big surprise here after the FA were able to confirm what we all knew would happen to Chelsea's appeal. Costa will miss Saturday's Premier League meeting with title rivals Manchester City at Stamford Bridge as well as matches away at Aston Villa and home to Everton. Didier Drogba is being tipped to step in this weekend, although Loic Remy is another option.

James Ward-Prowse has signed a new contract that has him staying at Southampton until 2020.

The youngster has 17 appearances this season despite sitting out several weeks through injury and has appeared every bit as advertised. He rose through the ranks of Southampton's system and has been fantastic this season. This is a great sign for Southampton, who have a good piece for the future in the 20 year old and someone they could potentially sell for a big profit. Ward-Prowse is a good fantasy option as he will likely start again if Morgan Schneiderlin and Victor Wanyama continue missing time.

The Press Association is reporting that Scott Sinclair's long-rumored loan move to Aston Villa is on and will be completed in the next 24 hours.

The move has been the definition of on-again-off-again but it appears that good sense will prevail in the form of a move that appears to benefit all parties. Sinclair hasn't played much since his move the Manchester City and Aston Villa need somebody, anybody, who can help them score a few more goals. Sounds like a match made in heaven to us. Maybe Villa's matches will be something closer to watchable as a result. It certainly takes Sinclair's value from zero to at least something in the same way that Joleon Lescott's move from City to West Brom did for Lescott.

Steve Bruce's striker crisis could be easing a little earlier than expected with the news that both Nikica Jelavic and Abel Hernandez could return earlier than expected this week.

Both Nikica Jelavic and Abel Hernandez were ruled out for 4 to 6 weeks in early January but today comes news that both are close to being fit enough and could participate in Hull City's Week 23 match against Newcastle at the KC Stadium. Hull City have been in rotten form but the visit of struggling Newcastle represents an opportunity to climb out of the relegation zone. Bruce will probably push as hard as he can to get both forwards cleared for action.

Steve Bruce has indicated that Abel Hernandez may be fit to play a role against Newcastle in Saturday's early kick-off.

Hernandez had initially been ruled out for four to six weeks taking his lay-off well into February but apparently he has recovered faster than expected and might be fit enough to play a part on Saturday. Hull City certainly need the goals if Hernandez can get fit but it is no sure thing. For fantasy managers trying to figure out your strategy, you may have time to add Hernandez in salary cap leagues before the transfer deadline expires because this is the first match of the weekend. Regardless, he is only a fringe starter to be considered if he is particularly cheap and playing weak opposition.
