Tottenham have announced that they have reached agreement with FC Twente for the transfer of Nacer Chadli.

Spurs have agreed an undisclosed fee, thought to be about £7m, for the 23-year-old Belgium international, who has won 14 caps. Chadli is a pacey and skillful winger with an eye for goal (scoring 31 times in 106 games for Twente) and will add to Andre Villas-Boas' limited wide options, with Gareth Bale the only recognised left-sided attacker in the squad. He can play on either flank so will also offer an alternative to Aaron Lennon on the right wing.

Leicester forward Jamie Vardy is suspended for gameweek 19 due to accumulating five yellow cards.

Vardy has not been great to fantasy owners but the suspension rules him out of even the deepest leagues. Leo Ulloa played well in the Foxes' last might and should be considered in their trip to Hull City this weekend. He is not a great option but can be a differential play to the adventurous fantasy manager.

Ashley Young has been impressive in the past two weeks, returning double digit fantasy scores in both.

Manchester United's attack is picking up steam and Young is getting involved enough to return good fantasy value. He only costs £ 8.56M and should continue getting playing time until some of Manchester's injured players return. Our analyst Galin Dragiev has recommended him in his Week 19 Player Picks.

Jose Fonte returns from a one-match ban to face Chelsea in gameweek 19.

Fonte was suspended for week 18 due to an accumulation of yellow cards but will return in week 19 to face Chelsea. He is nailed on to start in Southampton's back line and is a decent fantasy choice despite having a low chance at a clean sheet. He can contribute through tackles and interceptions and can score the occasional goal, making him a low risk play this week. Florin Gardos or Maya Yoshida will drop from the starting lineup.

Gabby Agbonlahor is suspended for GW19 due to an accumulation of yellow cards.

The Aston Villa forward had his red card rescinded from week 17 but then picked up a yellow in week 18 and will now serve a one-match ban. Andreas Weimann will likely return to the starting lineup and Christian Benteke is expected to lead the line. Benteke is the one worth owning in fantasy if you want a Villa forward in their great week 19 matchup.

There is a low chance of Chelsea midfielder Oscar being rested on Sunday.

The attacking midfielder played 80 minutes on Friday and was rested last weekend. At the same time, Willian and Eden Hazard haven't seen a day of in a while, especially Hazard, who hasn't missed a minute of Premier League football since mid-October. We would consider Oscar safe to play in fantasy on Sunday.

Pablo Zabaleta is likely to earn a start against Burnley tomorrow, making him a very good choice for fantasy managers.

Zabaleta was rested in Manchester City's Boxing Day match and he will likely be utilized in their home encounter against Burnley. With how bad Burnley have been on the road, Manchester City's clean sheet chances are the best of any match tomorrow, making Zabaleta an excellent fantasy choice. Aleksandar Kolarov is another good option to get into the City defense.

Laurent Koscielny and Hector Bellerin have resumed full training and could be called upon for the Week 19 trip to West Ham United.

With Arsene Wenger forced to employ makeshift defensive line-ups for much of the past few months, he will be excited at the prospect of having Koscielny back to start and Bellerin back as a reserve right back who might be able to keep pace with some of the Premier League's faster left wingers. Koscielny's status as a starter for the Week 19 trip to Upton Park is uncertain but he seems likely to at least be on the bench with a start possible.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who missed the Boxing Day visit of QPR, will be assessed ahead of the Sunday trip to West Ham.

Tomas Rosicky played well and scored a goal in his first Premier League start of the season but the Czech international's injury history would lead you to believe starting him twice in two days isn't a great idea. Arsene Wenger will likely revert to Oxlade-Chamberlain in the same role if he is fit enough to go. Unfortunately, the news on the Ox isn't definitive enough to select him in any fantasy format that has a deadline that passes before line-ups are announced.

With Olivier Giroud suspended for Arsenal's next three matches Yaya Sanogo could get a start between Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck.

Arsene Wenger will have multiple options to replace Giroud. Danny Welbeck could revert to a more central role where, truth told, he was more effective than he has been in Theo Walcott's wide right role. Wenger could also choose Yaya Sanogo who has recently returned from a hamstring injury suffered against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League. Welbeck seems certain to start either way but where he plays will be very influential on his potential value.

Ryan Shawcross will be assessed for concussion issues to determine if he will be able to participate in the Potters' Week 19 match with West Brom.

Ryan Shawcross painted quite a picture in the Week 18 win over Everton after having his head bandaged after a clash with Romelu Lukaku. With Lukaku's old team West Brom arriving at the Britannia on Sunday, Shawcross will have to pass concussion protocols before being allowed to play. It is likely that the results of these protocols won't be known until after fantasy transfer deadlines for Yahoo.com and PL.com have passed.

It has been a frustrating season so far for Luke Shaw with injuries but he is close to a return and could make the squad for the Week 19 trip to Spurs.

Ashley Young has been playing well in Shaw's absence and it sounds like Shaw isn't QUITE ready but it seems plausible that Shaw will make the bench ahead of a potential New Year's Day return. With Young playing well in his absence and Shaw having yet to show the sort of form that led to a huge transfer fee over the summer, it will be interesting to see how Louis Van Gaal utilizes the two players once both are healthy.
