Cardiff have signed England international defender Steven Caulker from Tottenham for a club record fee, understood to be in excess of £8m.

Having begun last season as first choice after Younes Kaboul's long-term injury, Caulker had fallen behind Jan Vertonghen and Michael Dawson, so with Kaboul back in training he was understandably concerned about his first team opportunities. However, it seems very surprising that Spurs have allowed him to leave on a permanent transfer when a loan deal was a viable option. One thing is for sure - Cardiff have got themselves a fantastic defender, and Andre Villas-Boas will need to sign a replacement.

James Tomkins is likely to miss a "few weeks" following a calf injury at Southampton on Saturday.

The Hammers defender has struggled due to a number of minor problems recently - most notably a head wound which required thirteen stitches. However, this latest setback – a suspected calf strain - is likely to keep the 26-year-old sidelined for the longest period yet. A scan on Monday will confirm the extent of the damage suffered during the defeat at St Mary's. In his absence, Joey O’Brien could fill in at right-back for the FA Cup replay against Liverpool while Sam Byram – who is ineligible on Tuesday – is a candidate in the league. Speaking ahead of the match, Slaven Bilic revealed Dimitri Payet should be okay after he escaped relatively unscathed following a rash Victor Wanyama scissor challenge which resulted in his sending-off. Andy Carroll will face his former employers following his recovery from a hamstring strain.

Steve McClaren is hoping Daryl Janmaat will be available to take his place in United’s patched up defence when the Magpies travel to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea in game week twenty-six.

Janmaat picked up a knock during the open exchanges of Saturdays' encounter with West Brom but the Dutch full-back managed to complete ninety minutes. Post-match the Newcastle head coach revealed: "He got a kick and a dead leg but he should be okay." United managed to secure a crucial three-points as Fabricio Coloccini (knee) played through the pain-barrier to partner Steven Taylor who was making his first start since August. Rolando Aarons was used as a make-shift left-back with Massadio Haidara, Vernon Anita, Jack Colback and Kevin Mbabu all missing through injury to help the Geordies to a rare win and clean-sheet.

David Silva looks set for another extended spell on the sidelines with the Spanish playmaker all but ruled out of this weekends’ crucial clash with Tottenham.

Silva was replaced after 77 minutes on Saturday as champions-elect City were humbled at the Etihad by a Leicester City side who continue to defy the odds. The defeat leaves the Citizens six-points off top-spot but more worrying is the loss of Silva who has struggled throughout the campaign due to muscular and ligament problems. "He is playing with a lot of pain in his ankle. He twisted it again today, so we will see during the week," said the Chilean coach. This latest addition to the treatment room leaves Pellegrini with seven outfield players currently sidelined. But more importantly it means City are without four creative midfielders' with Kevin de Bruyne, Samir Nasri and Jesus Navas already ruled out plus Wilfried Bony who is struggling to shake off an ankle injury.

Alan Pardew played down any fears of an injury recurrence for Yohan Cabaye after the Frenchman was replaced with twenty-minutes still remaining at the Liberty on Saturday.

Cabaye passed a late test having limped away from Selhurst Park on crutches last weekend, but the Eagles boss was quick to confirm the midfielder had not suffered another injury: "He's fine," Pardew said. "He was struggling a little bit with his fitness because he hadn't worked ahead of the game. He's had a sore ankle as we know and was touch and go but he was terrific." Palace ended a run of five consecutive Premier League defeats at Swansea, but the draw still leaves them without a win in eight, a run which has saw them slide alarmingly into the bottom half. However, following the arrival Emmanuel Adebayor, Palace hope that a new attacking impetus will be enough to help the Eagles soar back-up the league table.

Guus Hiddink refused to speculate on the nature of the injury suffered by Kurt Zouma during the clash with Man United at Stamford Bridge. But admitted: "It was very bad," adding that he "hoped" the player would not miss the remainder of the season.

Zouma rose unchallenged on the hour mark to make a strong headed clearance, but landed awkwardly, and momentum caused his knee to hyperextend (bend backwards). Medics were quickly called onto the field and Zouma was stretchered off in obvious distress. "I am not a doctor, let's see tomorrow," Hiddink said on the final whistle but gave a little more insight during the post-match press conference. "It's very bad when you land with a hyper-extended knee. Hopefully he won't be out for rest of season. Let's touch wood and hope there is good news. " His absence will mean Gary Cahill is expected to partner John Terry in the heart of the Chelsea defence.

Eden Hazard was only deemed worthy of being a second half substitute as Chelsea came back to draw with Manchester United while he was on the pitch.

Eden Hazard's return from a hamstring injury has been more protracted than one might expect for last season's Premier League Player of the Year. Despite being fit enough for a spot on the bench over Chelsea's past two matches, the Belgium international hasn't been tapped to start either by Guus Hiddink. Rather he has been cast in the role of second half change of pace by the Dutch interim manager. With Chelsea's play improving and Hazard contributing little during that period of improved play, it is reasonable to wonder if the arrangement will stand despite Hazard being fully fit.

Jesse Lingard's ascendancy may have been somewhat accidental this season but he has taken the opportunity and continues to produce results.

The Manchester United midfielder has now scored in consecutive matches and has been part of what has at least been a mini-revival of United's attacking play featuring Lingard and Martial playing wide, Juan Mata playing centrally behind Wayne Rooney. Rooney's revival has been well documented but it has been the speed and skill of Martial and Lingard and the creativity of Mata that have created opportunity for Rooney and put some sting in the Red Devil attack. Lingard won't keep scoring a goal a match but continue to look for contributions from him.

Jesse Lingard fired in an excellent shot falling away from the goal to give Manchester United the lead but it was David De Gea who came to the rescue to ensure that the Red Devils left Stamford Bridge with at least one point.

David De Gea couldn't keep Diego Costa out after the Brazilian/Spaniard was put in on goal beautifully in stoppage time. It was hardly the Spanish goalkeeper's fault but it was the only thing that could possibly be held against him in what was an excellent display. His most notable save was from a Branislav Ivanovic drive that looked bound for the top corner. He also did well to save from a second half Costa shot that was aimed for the near post top corner. United owe the one point they did pick up at Stamford Bridge to the continued excellence of their number one.

The "good" Diego Costa, the incredibly skilled one, was on display against Manchester United as Chelsea came back from a goal down in stoppage time to draw 1-1 against Louis Van Gaal's Manchester United.

Diego Costa can impress and frustrate neutrals in equal measure between his great skill and his agitating style that often crosses the line into dirty play. It was the Spain international's positive qualities that shone through at Stamford Bridge as he took a beautiful through ball and rounded David De Gea for the tying goal in stoppage time. If Costa played like this every week without the yellow cards and histrionics then he'd clearly be among the best at his position in the Premier League. As it stands, he's improved his play immeasurably since Guus Hiddink replaced Jose Mourinho and Chelsea's fortunes have turned around accordingly.

Mesut Ozil and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored 88 seconds apart to account for the only two scores of the day as Arsenal secured a tidy 0-2 against AFC Bournemouth.

There was no Fraser Forster today to spoil Arsenal's attacking clout. In the 23rd minute, Olivier Giroud headed an Aaron Ramsey cross into the path of Mesut Ozil and the German midfield struck the back of the net. 88 seconds later, Ramsey was key in the second goal, feeding "the Ox" with a pass and Oxlade-Chamberlain fired low and in off the far post. The Gunners threatened more in the first half but their possession and chances began to dry up in the second frame. It made no difference, as the Cherries were kept mostly in check by Petr Cech and some shots off target. The win sees the Gunners jump above Manchester City in the table and will take on the Cinderella Foxes at The Emirates next weekend.

AFC Bournemouth conceded two goals in quick concession and could not get back in the match as Arsenal kept a tidy defense and defeated the Cherries, 0-2.

The Cherries had come into the day in good form, bagging seven points from their previous three matches, all of them in which Benik Afobe scored. Afobe did not carry much threat on the day, leaving what chances they had to the midfield. Harry Arter came closest with a shot in the 27 minute, but Petr Cech did well to extend and push the effort over the bar. Matt Ritchie had a frustrating time of it. He had three decent looks but all the shot he took sailed high over the target. Meanwhile, the defense got burned twice in less than 90 seconds to give the Gunners a comfortable advantage for most of the match. Bournemouth will look to get back to securing points with another match at home next week against a sputtering Stoke City side.
