Steve Clarke has officially added another attacking option in the form of Udinese forward Matej Vydra.

With Salmon Kalou apparently not coming and Scott Sinclair still not on the books adding the man who scored 20 goals for Watford in the Championship last season appears to be a good move for the Baggies. It remains to be seen if the 21 year-old can rise to the level of his new league but the potential is certainly there. If Sinclair is eventually added and Nicholas Anelka's sizzling summer form continues then West Brom may have a very potent attack this season.

Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen were the stars again as Tottenham sealed an impressive 3-0 victory over West Brom at the Hawthorns.

Another good away result for Spurs moves them up to fifth in the table after they dispatched Tony Pulis' West Brom side with ease. Eriksen opened the scoring after just six minutes with yet another brilliant free-kick, before Kane doubled the lead ten minutes later, with Mousa Dembele playing a key role in both goals to give Maurico Pochettino's men a comfortable lead going in at half time. The Baggies had chances with Hugo Lloris making two good saves and Craig Dawson heading against the crossbar, but Kane sealed the points with his second goal from the penalty spot - his 20th in all competitions this season. West Brom will be disappointed with their performance and they remain just three points above the drop zone.

Liverpool enjoyed a productive afternoon as they won 2-0 over West Ham United with both goals set up by Phillipe Coutinho.

It looked like a frustrating day for the Reds after one half of play, as they dominated possession, and created several chances without cashing in, with a sitter from Lazar Markovic just before the half summing up their frustration. They never kept off the front foot though, and the chances began to come good in the second frame. A cross to Raheem Sterling allowed the speedster to play a 1-2 with Coutinho and Sterling chipped in his fifth league goal of the season. Then just 12 minutes into his substitution appearance, Daniel Sturridge scored after following Coutinho up the pitch on the break. The Brazilian dribbled nimbly toward the area then picked out Sturridge who finished with confidence. Add in another clean sheet and we are looking at the best form of the season right now for Liverpool. All of their fantasy stock is ticking up.

John Carver claimed victory in his first game since being confirmed as Newcastle head coach as Hull's losing run continued.

This was just about as easy as a Premier League away game can get, as Newcastle ran out 3-0 winners over Hull at the KC Stadium. The outstanding Remy Cabella's 20-yard strike gave the Magpies the lead before Sammy Ameobi's long-range goal gave the away side a firm grip on the game just after half time. Newcastle sealed an excellent win with 12 minutes to go courtesy of a deflected finish from substitute Yoan Gouffran so move up to 11th, while Hull remain in deep trouble down in the relegation zone.

Crystal Palace have completed the signing of Lille left-back Pape Souare.

The Senegal international flew straight to London to complete the deal after his nation's early exit from the African Nations Cup this week. Souare becomes Alan Pardew's third signing of the week after the arrivals of Jordon Mutch and Shola Amoebi. Mutch has signed a four-and-a-half-year contract and Ameobi has joined until the end of the campaign after ending a brief stay in Turkey.

Swansea City captain Ashley Williams has spent the two weeks between league matches to recover from a shoulder injury he picked up against Chelsea and has been declared fit for selection on Sunday.

Excellent news for Garry Monk and Swansea fans as the club have a tough task of finding a positive result against Southampton at St. Mary's Stadium. With Wilfried Bony long gone and Gylfi Sigurdsson serving the first of a three-match ban, it may take a tight defense to steal a road point and that feat would be next to impossible without Williams. A true soldier, he has yet to miss a minute of pitch time this season and it appears that impressive trend will continue on Sunday.

The controversial choice by Kevin Mirallas to take spot kick duties away from Leighton Baines in Everton's previous league match against West Brom and subsequent removal later in the match apparently has been settled in the locker room and Mirallas should be available for selection when the Toffees face Palace tomorrow.

One thing is for sure, you will not be seeing anyone taking penalties for the Toffees when Leighton Baines is on the pitch except for Leighton Baines. His record there is solid and everyone except Mirallas was aware of that before the incident two weekends ago. Now the word on the street is that Mirallas is angling for a move away from Goodison Park, with Spurs already being rumored as a potential new home, but Everton will probably wait to unload him in the summer. It would be in Mirallas' best interest to swallow some pride, chalk up the mistake and play hard for Roberto Martinez. The irony is that his sizzling form is what probably led to the incident to begin with. If he doesn't start tomorrow, Everton can say it is due to nothing more than a hamstring issue, but realistically it would imply that he is firmly in the doghouse, not the physio room.

Tony Pulis indicated that Callum Mcmanaman will go straight into the squad for Week 23.

Pulis is hoping McManaman will provide a wide attacking presence that has been mostly missing for Albion this season. Fantasy managers will have to worry about the possibility that McManaman will start on the bench but given that he is in form there is every reason to expect that he will get his first start.

Mame Biram Diouf is available to Mark Hughes after returning from the African Cup of Nations.

With Bojan out for the rest of the season with a knee injury Mark Hughes will be happy to have Diouf back in the line-up for the visit of Queens Park Rangers on Saturday. Diouf may not play the entire match due to travel-related fatigue but he is likely to figure in some way.

Louis Van Gaal will be missing Michael Carrick for a month with a muscle injury.

Manchester United's revival corresponded with Carrick's return to the line-up. Their ability to win without him will be tested with the midfielder likely out until early March. With Darren Fletcher rumored to be departing Marouane Fellaini and Daley Blind are likely to get more playing time.

Maya Yoshida and Florin Gardos are in a battle to earn a start in Southampton's match against Swansea this weekend.

Yoshida just returned from international duty and will be challenging Gardos for a start. Gardos was benched earlier this month for playing poorly, but he looked much better once Yoshida was out for international duty. This will likely be a mystery up until lineups are announced and we don't feel good with either defender in formats where you can't change the lineup up until kickoff.

Sadio Mane could be fit to face Swansea on Sunday.

The Southampton was injured while on international duty but is now back and could challenge Eljero Elia and James Ward-Prowse for a starting spot. Elia played well during Mane's absence but wasn't as exceptional as he's hyped up to be and Mane will certainly challenge him for a starting spot. It's hard to trust either one in fantasy at the moment as they're likely to be rotated as the season goes on.
