With his days seemingly numbered at Manchester City there is word that Arsenal are discussing a move for Gareth Barry.

Barry isn't a bad player but he was never THAT great and he is certainly past the point where he should be starting regularly for a top four team. That said, if Arsenal are looking at Barry as a squad player they could do a lot worse than the versatile midfielder. Barry could deputize behind Arteta as well as potentially turning back the clock and playing on the left side of defense and midfield as he did in his Aston Villa days. In that role, he'd be a valuable addition.

Andre Wisdom and Timm Klose will not play any part in the Canaries relegation run-in after suffering serious knee injuries.

Wisdom has ended his loan spell at the club after the defender suffered a knee ligament injury during the dying moments of the game against Sunderland. "Andre is out for the remainder of the season," the Canaries boss told Norwich's YouTube channel. "He is away back to Liverpool now. He was a loan player, so there is no point in him hanging about here, he needs to go start his rehab there." Alex Neil also confirmed Swiss defender Timm Klose won't play again in 2015/16: "He isn't going to be right between now and the end of the season. We need to come to terms with that and move on. It's going to be a slow process for him."

Andros Townsend delivered a cracking free kick goal and Karl Darlow stopped a Crystal Palace penalty chance as Newcastle United move out of the relegation zone with a 1-0 win over the Eagles.

Palace looked the likelier side to score in the opening 45 minutes, as the Magpies had a couple of opportunities come up empty. Jack Colback sent a dangerous ball into the area but Moussa Sissoko could not get a clean foot on it. Colback then missed a curling effort inside the area. It was Townsend who finally broke through in the 58th minute, drawing a foul a few yards outside the box then sent a sizzling free kick that popped the far corner of the net. Newcastle tried to park the bus but Sissoko was adjudged to have committed handball and former Magpie Yohan Cabaye had a chance to equalize from the spot. His kick was not wide enough and Darlow made the huge save that could mean the difference in the club's season. Sunderland still have a game in hand and a better goal difference record but their crosstown rivals have the benefit of facing lowly Aston Villa next weekend.

Mark Noble led West Ham to a huge win over West Brom by a score of 3-0.

Noble scored twice to give West Ham a very comfortable lead. He remains a solid midfielder but fantasy managers shouldn't expect to see this type of performance more than once a season. The other goal came from Cheikhou Kouyate, who is worth playing in very deep leagues only.

Guus Hiddink confirms Gary Cahill and John Terry will return to Mondays' match day squad when the Blues take on London rivals Tottenham at Stamford Bridge.

The Dutchman revealed Terry has recovered from the Achilles problem which kept him side-lined for the last month while Cahill missed the win at Bournemouth due to illness. In their absence, Hiddink opted for John Obi Mikel to partner Branislav Ivanovic in the heart of the Chelsea defence leaving youngster Matt Miazga on the bench, however, it’s a combination we’ll not be seeing again any time soon. With the skipper not ready to play 90 minutes just yet, Cahill should return to the line-up. Eden Hazard is also expected to be named in the starting XI following his brace in the 4-1 victory at the Vitality.

Luke Shaw is confident he can return from injury before the end of the season after stepping up his recovery from a double leg fracture in recent weeks.

Speaking to MUTV the 20-year-old revealed: "At the moment, my leg feels really great every time I go outside. There was a bit of aching at the start but now they are all gone." Louis van Gaal had always maintained that Shaw would come into contention if United were able to reach the Europa League final on May 18. However, winning last weekends’ semi-final in the FA Cup keeps Luke Shaw’s hopes of playing again in 2015/16 alive. Following months of gym and pool work, his rehabilitation is "going really well" although the club will err on the side of caution and Shaw won’t be rushed. "I am just going to keep pushing now until the end of the season and see what happens."

Manchester City will once again have to do without midfield maestro David Silva, possibly for the remainder of the season, due to a hamstring injury.

The midfielder was taken off in the 40th minute against Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League semifinal first leg after feeling his hamstring and signaling to be taken off immediately. The injury came just after manager Manuel Pellegrini professed his hope that Silva had overcome a persistent ankle injury that he struggled with throughout the season. But now Pellegrini said he will miss the next two to three weeks and may not even return this season unless the club advances to the Champions League final at the end of next month.

Tim Howard will officially get the sending off Everton fans were hoping for despite not being listed as the club's No. 1 goalkeeper.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez confirmed that Howard will start in the club's two remaining home games to allow the Goodison Park faithful to give him a proper sendoff before his move to the Colorado Rapids this summer after more than nine years at the club. That means the American international, who hasn't started a league match in two months, will be the starting keeper at home against Bournemouth this weekend as well as the season finale against Norwich City in Week 38. Meanwhile, Joel Robles will start both away fixtures in Week 37 against Leicester City and Sunderland.

Odion Ighalo looks likely to feature for Watford against Aston Villa this weekend despite the passing of his father last weekend.

Odion Ighalo was mourning the passing of his father as the Hornets were eliminated from the FA Cup last weekend but it appears that he will play out the season or at least Week 36 against Aston Villa. Ighalo has seen his fortunes tail off over the second half of the season after an exceptional first half where he and Troy Deeney willed Watford to enough points for another season in the top flight. Ighalo is one of the tougher fantasy calls going into the last two weeks. He has three matches over Weeks 36 and 37 including home to Aston Villa this weekend. That sounds like value but his performances over the past few weeks would indicate otherwise.

Saido Berahino and Ben Foster face late fitness tests ahead of West Brom's match with West Ham at the Hawthorns.

The Baggies had their say on the title race on Monday when they held Spurs to a draw. The outcome was a big deal in the grander scheme of the title race but it might have taken it's toll on a couple of West Brom players. Saido Berahino and Ben Foster both came away nursing ankle injuries and neither are sufficiently recovered to be definite participants against West Ham on Saturday. Check both as close to kick-off as you can before making any line-up decisions.

Santi Cazorla has been ruled fit enough to participate against Norwich in Week 36 but his role isn't certain.

Arsene Wenger has stated that he will definitely not "risk" both Santi Cazorla and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as both players return from injuries. With a long line of players - Iwobi, Walcott, and Campbell - fit and able to play in Oxlade-Chamberlain's spot, it seems most likely that Cazorla will be the one risked if either are to start. If I were in a format or situation where I had to decide on Friday night whether to start Cazorla, I'd wait another week.

Stoke City left back Erik Pieters will be available again for the Potters in Week 36 after serving his two match suspension.

Bad news for Sunderland as Stoke City will have at least one of their recently-absent defenders back for the visit of the Black Cats. Pieters served a two match suspension for the accumulation of ten yellow cards and the Black Cats were poor while he was out dropping consecutive 4-0 decisions to Spurs and Manchester City. Pieters absence wasn't the only issue as they lost 4-1 to Liverpool in the match he picked up his 10th yellow so his return is certainly no panacea.
