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.

Victor Moses continues to set the fantasy world alight with his performances for Stoke City and it continued in the Potters' Week 6 win over Newcastle.

Victor Moses has played four matches for Stoke City thus far and in the Yahoo format, he has averaged just a shade under 15 points per outing. And it isn't just the fantasy numbers, all you have to do is watch a Stoke match briefly to see that Moses is at the center of just about everything they do. For a player who has struggled to make an impact at bigger clubs, he may have found both his level and a home. The Week 6 performance was full of Moses' now-typical all-around goodness with an assist, a shot on target, two successful crosses, two interceptions, and two tackles. Amazing stuff from a wide player.

Coming off of a brace in League Cup action, Marc Muniesa was given a start against Newcastle and didn't disappoint.

The former Barcelona trainee stepped in for Erik Pieters against Newcastle and neither the club nor the player skipped a beat as they kept a clean sheet with Muniesa providing solid cover. It was a far cry from his brace against Sunderland in the League Cup but a blocked shot, three interceptions and a tackle on top of the clean sheet were enough for a 13 point performance in the Yahoo format. It seems unlikely that he has moved permanently ahead of Pieters but he has served notice that he can be a strong option if Pieters is absent for an extended period.

After starting the season as a sub for the first two matches and producing little in his first two starts, Peter Crouch has come on with two goals and an assist in his last two PL matches.

Mark Hughes had a lot of new faces to integrate in the early part of the season with Mame Biram Diouf, Bojan, Victor Moses, and Oussama Assaidi all arriving to join the existing team. It has taken a while but Hughes seems to have settled on Crouch and Diouf as his preferred forwards with Moses firing in crosses at a prolific rate. The results have been strong for the lanky Crouch who has scored from two and knocked another to Diouf for a goal. With Diouf now injured it will be interesting to see how the dynamics change.

After his midweek goal in the English League Cup, Jozy Altidore called on the rest of his teammates to be a little "nastier". He also spoke about rejoining the first team.

Jozy Altidore scored his first goal of 2014-15 for Sunderland during a 2-1 home loss to Stoke City in the third round of the English League Cup, his first since December 4, 2013 (vs Chelsea). After the game he told reporters that his teammates need to be "tougher" and that his focus is on making it back into the first team. Unfortunately, his goal (plus the pep talk) didn't turn into minutes vs Swansea. With just 57 minutes played in the PL this season, Jozy will need a lot to fall his way in order for him to have any chance of rejoining the first team. For now, he's got a long ways to go before earning a spot in Gus Poyet's starting XI.

After conceding at least one goal in each of the first four games, Vito Mannone and Sunderland hold Swansea goalless to earn their second consecutive shutout.

Sunderland have been one of the weakest offensive teams in the PL after six games. Good thing for them, they've also been one of the stingiest when it comes to conceding. Thru six games Sunderland have given up just 6 goals, good for third-best in the league. Their schedule has been favorable to start the year so look for them to start conceding in the near future. Over the next eight games they'll face the top four, plus a few middle-of-the-pack teams. Hold onto Vito this week, but look for a replacement when they travel to Southampton in two weeks.

Frazier Campbell helps Crystal Palace improve to 2-0-2 under new boss Neil Warnock.

Second-half goals from Campbell and captain Mile Jedinak were enough for Palace to clinch all three points Saturday, as it won at home for the first time this season. It looks like Campbell has cemented himself in the starting XI for the time being. You can't expect him to produce like this week-in-week-out at this point, but it's good to see him getting goals in consecutive matches against quality opponents. Palace will play Hull on the road this week before facing off against the Premier League leaders - Chelsea - at home.

Senegalese striker Mime Biram Diouf has been ruled out of this weekend’s trip to Wearside after failing to recover from the hamstring injury he suffered against Newcastle on Monday night. The Potters meet Sunderland for the second time in less than two weeks following their League Cup win in September.

Diouf has started the season impressively with two goals from five starts – most notably against Manchester City – when the forward ran fully 70 yards to coolly slot the ball home past England goalkeeper Joe Hart to take all three points from the Etihad. His absence – although a blow – will provide Marco Arnautovic with an opportunity to shine following his stop / start beginning to the campaign after a foot injury while Oussama Assaidi and Stephen Ireland will be pushing for a place amongst the eleven as they gradually return to full fitness. Victor Moses has been superb and will be hoping to continue his fine form with Mark Hughes also expecting to have Jon Walters [calf] at his disposal.

West Brom could welcome back a quartet of players this weekend but Baggies boss Alan Irvine is unlikely to make wholesale changes after the emphatic victory over Burnley at the Hawthorns in game week six.

Chris Baird [illness] missed out last Sunday but has returned to training while Brown Ideye [ankle], Sylvestre Varela and Victor Anichebe [both groin] face late fitness tests; full-back Sebastien Pocognoli who limped to the sidelines after picking up a minor knock should be fine. However West Brom will be forced into at least one alteration as Andre Wisdom is unable to face his parent club under the terms of his loan agreement – Christian Gamboa is in line for his first league start since his summer move from Rosenborg. Saido Berahino will look to add to his four goals already this term and will be buoyed by the news of his England Under-21 call up on Thursday.

According to teammate Bobby Zamora, Vargas is "still finding his seat since coming to the Premier League" from Serie A.

Vargas played limited minutes in QPR's 4-0 loss to Man United, but since then has started the last two consecutive matches, notching an assist in the team's 2-1 loss to Southampton this past weekend. "He’s come all the way over here and he doesn’t speak any English so it takes time," said Zamora. Hopefully the 24 year-old can give a boost to the club's attack from here on out because with the way things look right now, QPR will need everything they can get to escape relegation at the end of the season.

Chelsea striker Diego Costa will not skip international duty with Spain next week despite his nagging muscle injuries.

Costa has played through all of his injuries and has been on a prolific goal scoring spree in the past month, but Jose Mourinho was certainly hoping his star striker would take the international week off. This is both good and bad news for fantasy managers. Good news is that Costa feels healthy enough to play for Spain but the bad news is that he is putting himself at a high risk of injury. Follow Costa's status before Premier League matches but as of now we don't think he is in danger of missing time.

Sadio Mane played very well in his Southampton debut and should have a cemented starting spot going ahead.

Mane is a very fast attacking midfielder/winger who can create danger for any Premier League opposition. He was active the entire match and created chances for his teammates, ending the match with an assist, two shots on target, and three fouls won among a series of other stats. What was impressive was that he finished with 12 fantasy points despite receiving a yellow card. He is a fantastic player to own in fantasy and at £ 7.51 M, he gives you a great differential option.
