Alexis Sanchez repaid the majority of his transfer fee when he scored the lone goal of the home and away Champions League qualifying fixture against Besiktas on Wednesday.

It was a nervy time as, for the second time in the two match fixture, Arsenal went down to 10 men as Mathieu Debuchy was sent off for seeing two yellow cards. Before the French international was sent off his fellow new arrival Sanchez scored in first half stoppage time. Sanchez and Debuchy both had chances in the second half to double the lead but neither could convert. After that it was edge-of-seats time as Arsenal defended desperately and eventually saw out a 1-0 win. The theme of the season so far has been "ugly but effective" for Arsenal and that continued today.

Jurgen Klopp revealed in his press conference ahead of Liverpool's trip to Swansea City that Divock Origi may not make the squad as the forward copes with a minor foot injury.

It would not put much of a dent in Liverpool's attacking plans should Origi miss out, as the trident of Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane are fit and locked into the XI, while Klopp is still finding ways to get minutes to Daniel Sturridge before he looks to Origi. We have seen the Reds face an injury crisis a couple of times during Klopp's tenure though, so Origi could be an important piece in the future. The good news is, the foot issue is a minor one, so the Belgian should be back to 100% after the international break.

Francesco Guidolin pulled no punches when asked about his future with Swansea City ahead of their match with Liverpool, accepting the fact that, if he fails to win, he could be out of a job.

Swansea are just one point clear of the relegation zone and have not won since opening day, but to be fair, they have had a very rough run of fixtures since Week 3 and it will continue through Week 8, as they travel to Arsenal after playing the high-flying Reds this weekend. Another factor to consider is just how well the brass at Swansea expected the club to perform when they sold away two of their three key players, Ashley Williams and Andre Ayew, without finding replacements who are anywhere near adequate. Add to that, they broke their signing record with the acquisition of Borja and he has only played a total of 21 minutes on the season. The odds seem grim for Guidolin to find a win against the Reds but perhaps his players will step up for him and pull off the upset.

John Terry has returned to training and will be ready to play on Saturday when Chelsea play Hull City.

Terry had missed the Blues' last three matches with an ankle ligament injury, but is set to make his return in GW7. The 34-year-old will be welcomed back to the starting XI after Chelsea conceded five goals over the course of their last two league matches, which saw them suffer a pair of defeats to Liverpool and Arsenal. The skippers' return will allow Antonio Conte to use either a back three or, pair Terry with Gary Cahill, in a back four.

Fabio Da Silva and James Husband have returned to training for Middlesbrough while skipper Grant Leadbitter is also progressing well in his bid to return to fitness, according to manager Aitor Karanka.

Fabio, signed from Cardiff City last month, has been sidelined since he sustained a knee injury in his debut at Fulham in the EFL Cup in August. There was also good news provided on fellow defender Husband, who returned to training after rehabbing from a dislocated shoulder, and the club's captain Grant Leadbitter. Karanka said: "Grant is improving a lot, which is good news. It’s all very positive and he could be back sooner than we thought."

Manchester United is close to arriving at full strength following the return of Anthony Martial with Henrikh Mkhitaryan close as well.

Manager Jose Mourinho confirmed Marital has recovered from an ankle injury that caused him to miss the club's last two matches last weeks to be fit to face Ukrainian side Zorya Luhansk on Thursday in the Europa League group stage: "He has now recovered from the contusion in his calf and in his ankle. He has recovered and is ready for tomorrow." Meanwhile, Martial could have some competition soon with Mkhitaryan close to a return from a thigh injury. The summer signing could possibly return this weekend, but will surely be available after the international break, barring an injury setback.

Bournemouth will be happy to see the return of forward Joshua King this weekend against Watford, barring any injury setbacks.

The forward has missed the past week, including a League Cup match and the 1-0 win against Everton this weekend, with a knock, but manager Eddie Howe confirmed he is back in training ahead of the weekend trip to Watford. The Cherries have only scored four goals this season in six matches, without scoring more than one goal in a single game. Meanwhile, winger Marc Pugh is still recovering from a knock that will keep him out until after the international break. Said Howe: "Joshua King has done some light training this week. It's not too bad, while Marc Pugh is improving, but is still a couple of weeks away. Other than that we don't have many concerns."

Bournemouth is already making their hopes to sign Jack Wilshere to a permanent deal known at the end of his season-long loan.

Bournemouth chairman Jeff Mostyn said he wouldn't rule anything out at the end of the season after the former Arsenal prodigy arrived on Deadline Day. He has gone on to play in five of the club's Premier League matches to start the season. "The best we can do is integrate Jack into the team and help him fulfill what he wants. Whether or not we will go beyond a season, I think everything is possible. You have to be realistic and Jack may well consider his home to be back at Arsenal...But if there is a possibility and Eddie Howe decides that he's somebody he wants to keep it will be up to him."

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola confirmed that defender Vincent Kompany has not suffered a massive injury setback.

The Manchester City captain sustained a groin injury in the late stages of the club's win against Swansea City, minutes after he asked to stay on instead of being subbed off. But the club expects Kompany to return for the next Champions League match with Barcelona after the international break. "They are injured, unfortunately they are not here but we are going to do our best to recover them as soon as possible," manager Pep Guardiola said. "It's not a big, big injury, so I think in a short time -- two, three, three-and-a-half weeks -- both will be ready to be with us."

The Theo Walcott redemption tour continued with a first half brace against Basel in the Champions League group stage.

Arsenal scored twice in the first half through Theo Walcott and then cruised to a 2-0 victory at the Emirates. With PSG also winning the result put the two clubs even atop Group A with four points and a two goal differential each. The only significant changes Arsene Wenger made was continuing with Granit Xhaka due to the injury to Francis Coquelin and bringing in David Ospina as has been his habit in the Champions League.

Arsene Wenger has indicated that Aaron Ramsey will definitely miss out on matches with Burnley and Basel before the international break.

Ramsey's hamstring injury suffered in Week 1 against Liverpool has lingered longer than expected and the Arsenal manager has indicated that the player won't make it back before the international break. With an extra week to recover, Ramsey should be available when the Gunners return to action against Swansea at the Emirates on October 15th. Given the strength and health of the current squad expect Arsene Wenger to be conservative in bringing Ramsey back from his injury.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has signalled his intention to play Zlatan Ibrahimovic twice this week.

The Swede will start Thursday's must-win Europa League clash with Zorya Luhansk as well as the Stoke game in Gameweek 7. Even though Zlatan is turning 35 on Monday, Mourinho believes that his body is able for the intensity since he will not be playing during the international break immediately after. Some FPL managers will fear that fatigue will affect the big man in this weekend's game - they had better hope the Red Devils are out of sight quickly tomorrow night so that their precious Zlatan is ready to inflic more misery on the Potters.
