Tottenham confirm the signing of Roberto Soldado from Valencia after the player successfully completed his medical.

So Spurs will hope they finally have the striker the squad has been crying out for. Soldado netted 80 times in 146 appearances during his time at the Mestalla and is considered one the best finishers in Europe. The Spanish international has a better than '1 goal in every 2 games' record across his career and will vastly improve the limited striking options available to Andre Villas-Boas. The deal could see Adebayor leave White Hart Lane, with Besiktas interested.

After picking up a foot injury in Argentina's match against Portugal, Angel Di Maria will likely start against Arsenal in Week 12.

The circumstances surrounding Angel Di Maria's injury were odd indeed. The rash tackle was committed by another player who is on the United books (Nani) and it happened at Old Trafford. Not exactly "friendly", huh? Despite the worry, the post-match assessment indicated nothing more severe than a laceration that should be fine for the Week 12 trip to the Emirates.

Marc Wilson's recovery from a hamstring issue picked up against Spurs has not healed sufficiently for Mark Hughes to declare him likely to play against Burnley in Week 12.

With Burnley offering up light opposition at the Brittania in Week 12, there isn't a great deal of cause for Mark Hughes to try to rush Marc Wilson back from his injury. With Erik Pieters and Phil Bardsley both back to fitness, the Potters should be able to cover Wilson's spot comfortably. Some combination of Pieters, Bardsley, Cameron and Muniesa will join Ryan Shawcross in front of Asmir Begovic to face the Clarets.

Craig Gardner returns to the Baggies squad for Week 12 at Stamford Bridge after missing Week 11 through suspension.

Craig Gardner has been a significant presence for Alan Irvine this season and he is likely to return to the starting line-up for the sternest of Premier League tests in Week 12. The Baggies will need every bit of defensive fortitude available to them to withstand the team with the highest goal total in the league playing at home. He will be available but he shouldn't be on your "start" list unless you want to bet that Chelsea will have so much of the ball he'll get points from tackles and passes intercepted as West Brom try to park the bus.

Theo Walcott's injury issues continue with news that the attacking player is doubtful for Arsenal's Week 12 match against Manchester United.

Having just come back from a long layoff, it isn't surprising that some niggling injuries might crop up as the player's body gets used to playing competitive matches again. It is even less surprising when that player a) plays for Arsenal and b) is Theo Walcott. The speedy England man is a frequent visitor to the training room and supporters and fantasy managers shouldn't count on him for the weekend's marquee match-up.

Danny Welbeck (hamstring) and Alexis Sanchez (travel) will be assessed ahead of Arsenal's match with Manchester United with neither being 100% certain of starting.

Given the critical nature of the match-up, it seems likely that Arsene Wenger will start both players unless one or the other will either be significantly less than their best or at risk of making a small injury worse. Welbeck was withdrawn from England's friendly against Scotland on Tuesday and could be rested for United if Olivier Giroud is deemed fit enough and match-ready enough to start in his place. Alexis Sanchez would have to be in pretty rough shape from his international travels not to start given his form.

Radamel Falcao's injury concerns continue as Louis Van Gaal indicated in his weekly press conference that the Colombian forward would be out for the Week 12 match at the Emirates.

Manchester United's injury list for the match at bitter rival Arsenal is impressive indeed with Radamel Falcao joining Phil Jones, Jonny Evans, Marcos Rojo, Rafael, and Daley Blind as definitely out. Luke Shaw is a doubt after coming off against Scotland with a groin issue. David De Gea, Michael Carrick and Angel Di Maria all picked up injuries over the international break but are at least in contention if not probable to play. The starting line-up will be a source of major curiosity when it comes out tomorrow.

Facing a massive injury crisis, Manchester United get a lift from the potential availability of Michael Carrick after an injury kept him from suiting up for England.

Michael Carrick's groin issue that kept him out of England matches against Slovenia and Scotland left Louis Van Gaal unsure of whether his holding midfielder would be available for this weekend's trip to the Emirates. While he likely won't be 100%, the United team news lists Carrick as available and likely to start given the injury to Daley Blind.

Manchester City midfielder Fernando believes Premier League leaders Chelsea will eventually slip.

Chelsea have been unstoppable in the Premier League this season with the additions of this past summer, Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas, leading the way. Fernando believes that despite the improvements, Chelsea will eventually slip, opening the door for Manchester City to make a run at the title. The problem is less with Chelsea slipping and more with City, who have not been as good this year as they were last season. They will need Yaya Toure to return to form and Sergio Aguero to stay healthy if they're to make a run at the title.

Jay Rodriguez has suffered a small setback in his recovery from an ACL tear and had to undergo a second operation.

The Southampton forward went through a fairly routine second operation to aid his rehab following ACL reconstruction. He had initially hoped to return in December but the operation now delays his return to the new year, likely sometime in January. This is concerning for Southampton fans but ACL surgeries have gone a long ways and Rodriguez has a great chance of recovery. He has been out since April 5th.

Liverpool are rumored to be interested in Southampton defender Nathaniel Clyne.

Liverpool bought half of Southampton's roster last summer but apparently it wasn't enough. The club are now interested in Nathaniel Clyne, who recently made his England debut and has been simply fantastic this whole season. If history is any indication, Southampton will likely be willing to sell Clyne for the right fee. We would assume his value decreases in the case of a transfer as Liverpool's defense doesn't seem anywhere close to Southampton's at the moment.

Leicester defender Matt Upson is nearing full fitness and could return to action next week.

The defender has been sidelined with an ankle injury for an extended period of time but is finally training with the Foxes. We are not yet sure who Upson will replace in Leicester's defense but he will likely be given a go considering how leaky the defense has been lately. We don't consider him a good fantasy option for the time being.
