Wilfried Zaha has been impressive in Manchester United's pre-season matches thus far and he added to that with his first goal today against Cerezo Osaka.

To say that United's wingers were a disappointment last season would be an understatement. Between Ashley Young, Nani, Antonio Valencia and Ryan Giggs production plummeted dramatically due to aging, injury, fall outs with the manager and unexplained drops in effectiveness. Despite the perceived numbers in front of him it isn't out of the question that Zaha could make an impact this season. His pre-season performances certainly aren't hurting his cause any.

Jack Colback has been training all week according to Steve McClaren and is available for selection when Newcastle United travel this weekend to take on Chelsea.

McClaren announced that Emmanuel Riviere is available as well, but the French striker is far behind the pecking order at Newcastle with Aleksandar Mitrovic, Seydou Doumbia and Ayoze Perez all ahead of him, though Perez can play elsewhere. The boost comes from Colback's return. While normally deployed in central defensive midfield, he may line up at left back, where he has experience. Rolando Aarons was the latest emergency fill-in at the position and to be fair the Magpies kept a clean sheet in the process. But that was West Brom without a true striker and this is Chelsea up next, so expect Colback to find himself in the back four this weekend.

Max Gradel has returned to the club and is beginning the early stages of training as he looks to regain his fitness after a lengthy layoff following knee surgery.

Gradel was the big summer signing for the Cherries in their promotional season and was highly influential straight away, notching three assists in the first four matches of the season. It was in the fourth match that his knee was damaged though and has been sidelined ever since. Bournemouth have done well to stay above the relegation zone after losing Gradel and Callum Wilson so early in the season and now with Benik Afobe leading the line, having Gradel back could really improve the attack enough to stave off the drop. It will be a while before we see him starting again, but once he has match fitness, it is likely that he will jump ahead of Junior Stanislas and Marc Pugh in the pecking order.

Jurgen Klopp revealed that Dejan Lovren will be left out of action this weekend when Liverpool travel to play Aston Villa.

Earlier in the week, Lovren's chances of being fit against Aston Villa were looking favorable, as Klopp had indicated that the center back was taken out of last weekend's match against Sunderland as a precaution. Unfortunately, the manager indicated that Lovren "has a strange feeling in his muscle" but hopes to have the Croatian available for the Reds next game. It looks like it will be a Mamadou Sakho and Kolo Toure partnership at center back once again on Sunday.

Joe Allen will be "out for a while" according to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, as the midfielder has to recover from a hamstring injury picked up last weekend.

Allen, along with Dejan Lovren, were removed early during the eventual draw with Sunderland in Week 25. The prognosis for both looked as though the injuries were minor and both would be available in a week's time. However, Lovren has been ruled out for at least the weekend clash with Aston Villa while it sounds as though Allen will be sidelined for even longer. The Reds will likely line up with Jordan Henderson, Emre Can and James Milner playing between the back four and the attacking three.

Sunderland have terminated the contract of Adam Johnson after he plead guilty to two charges related to sexual activity with a 15-year-old girl.

Johnson has been at the center of a controversy surrounding this incident for some time. The club gave him ample time to exonerate himself but with news that he had plead guilty, they have moved to terminate his contract with immediate effect. Johnson scored the first goal in the Black Cats' late comeback against Liverpool on Saturday but that will apparently be his last contribution at the club.

Despite on-field frustrations, Bojan Krkic has signed a contract extension at Stoke City that will take him through the 2020 season.

Despite his name having been around at big clubs seemingly forever, Krkic is still only 25-years-old. From that point of view, the contract extension certainly makes sense for Stoke City. What is less clear is why they are doing it now given that Mark Hughes has left Bojan out of his starting line-up twice in Stoke City's past three Premier League matches. With the two parties married for the foreseeable future, we have to assume Bojan will get back to starting soon.

West Ham came through a bruising 120 minutes of football this week to guarantee their place in the fifth round of the FA Cup at the expense of Liverpool. However, the win came at a cost having picked up a number of injuries on the night.

Winston Reid and Joey O'Brien look set for a spell on the sidelines after the pair were forced off with hamstring related problems. A scan on Thursday will confirm the extent of the damage. Sam Byram is likely to come in at right-back while Angelo Ogbonna is poised for a recall. Slaven Bilic confirms James Tomkins (calf) "is out for five weeks" but Enner Valencia plus one / two others who suffered knocks "will be okay." Cheikhou Kouyate "is doing well" but because of the concussion guidelines the West Ham midfielder will not available for the trip to Carrow Road. Alex Song is back while Manuel Lanzini will re-join the group on Sunday. Diafra Sakho though, will be slightly longer "maybe five days after."

Roberto Martinez will make a late decision on Oumar Niasse who has been granted international clearance following his arrival from Russian side Lokomotiv Moscow on deadline day.

The attacking midfielder has been working on his fitness and Martinez remains hopeful that Niasse will start training with the team on Friday in order to make a decision on his involvement. The Toffees boss will also run the rule over Tim Howard (knee) and John Stones (hamstring) who have stepped up there rehab for past three-days. They "should" be with the first team from today. Saturday will be too early for Mo Besic though, however, the midfielder is close. He should be ready for the FA Cup next weekend.

Alan Pardew confirmed that this weekend's match will come too soo for Yannick Bolasie and Bakary Sako, but the duo is in line to return to training next week.

Bolasie has missed the past six weeks with a leg injury and the Crystal Palace attack has struggled mightily in his absence with only three goals and no wins since Boxing Day. Upon his return, Bolasie could be a shrewd fantasy pickup considering his stellar second-half to last season. Sako is set to join him in full training next week as he recovers from a hamstring injury that has kept him out for a month. The former Wolves forward aggravated the injury upon his initial return after missing a month and has only made one appearance in the past two months.

Joe Ledley will face a late fitness test but Jason Puncheon has been sidelined for a "long period" and the Palace winger will not be available until March at the earliest.

However, there was better news for the Eagles. Dwight Gayle has trained this week and Alan Pardew remains "hopeful" that the striker will be available for the visit of Watford. Connor Wickham has be added to the squad after completing his ban for elbowing Jan Vertonghen. Bakary Sako and Yannick Bolasie are running, both "should be back to face Tottenham in the FA Cup" next weekend. James McArthur "could" play again this season after a specialist consultation confirmed his ankle ligament injury would not require surgery: "It will heal itself," said the surgeon.

Arsene Wenger has indicated that Danny Welbeck's recovery is continuing and that he could be ready for the club's FA Cup date with Hull City next weekend.

With Olivier Giroud, Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Joel Campbell all fit, the next question becomes how likely it is that Danny Welbeck will get significant minutes for Arsenal this season or at any time in the near future. Theo Walcott has proven effective at least occasionally in a central forward role and Joel Campbell has asserted himself in the race for minutes as a wide attacker. It leaves Welbeck's spot in serious question and makes a summer move seem like a real possibility if he can remain fit for the final few months of the season.
