Everton is still waiting on the fitness of key starters Seamus Coleman and Gareth Barry ahead of the club's double gameweek.

Barry has missed the last two matches due to a knock while Coleman has been less fortunate in his recovery, missing much of the last three weeks with a hamstring injury. While Roberto Martinez said they might not be available to face Leicester City on Saturday, the manager is confident the duo will return at some point in the remaining three matches: "Gareth and Seamus have got an outside chance of being involved at the weekend but I feel quite confident they will be involved one way or another before the season ends."

Norwich City will wait until the last possible moment in order to check on the fitness of defender Ryan Bennett before Saturday's early match.

Norwich faces a critical double gameweek against Manchester United and Watford this week as the club sit just two points from leaving the relegation zone with a game in hand. With Bennett playing a major role in the club's season, manager Alex Neil said the club will wait to see if the defender can recover from an illness that kept him out of last weekend's match: "Ryan's still struggling at the moment so I'm not quite sure how he's going to be...It will be a real last-minute call, it will be determined by how Ryan is feeling and how he feels he can approach the game if he can."

Santi Cazorla may be ready to return to the pitch for Arsenal for the first time since his injury in November but fantasy managers shouldn't count on it.

With so many players having two matches and Cazorla not being a sure thing for even one (and very likely not to go the full ninety even if he does see the pitch), you'd have to have a lot of faith in the Spaniard to bring him into your line-up in any fantasy format for Week 37. Week 38 seems like a better bet with the Spaniard certainly interested in getting at least one competitive match in before the season comes to a close.

Per Mertesacker will miss Arsenal's final two matches with a hamstring injury.

The German center back only recently came back into the side after Gabriel was given a run of, largely unsuccessful, starts in the Premier League. Mertesacker was back for Arsenal's clean sheet win over Norwich City last weekend but will miss this weekend's big showdown with Manchester City that could lock up a guaranteed spot in the Champions League group stages. Presumably Gabriel will return to the starting line-up in Mertesacker's absence.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain re-injured his knee during his return from his previous knee injury and will miss both Arsenal's final two matches and the European Championships.

With so many players threatening his position for both Arsenal and England, it's hard to imagine that Oxlade-Chamberlain would have seen the light of day even if he'd been healthy but the new injury removes all doubt. With rumors swirling about a potential transfer over the summer one wonders whether there will be a market for the former Southampton trainee due to the long string of injuries that has set his progress back. Could he be Arsenal's "New Diaby"?

The 17-year-old forward/attacking midfielder played well enough in his Premier League debut to start again for the Baggies against the Cherries in Week 37 action.

With Saido Berahino likely on his way out of the club over the summer Leko is worth watching heading into next season. He isn't likely to be exceptional this coming weekend but managers, especially those managing draft teams, should look in to the match to try to get a sense of how likely Leko is to break through next season with Albion in desperate need of better attacking options that aren't in Tony Pulis' doghouse.

Marouane Fellaini will miss Manchester United's two Week 37 matches as part of his three match ban picked up in the 1-1 draw with Leicester City last weekend.

The suspension means that the Red Devils will be choosing between Michael Carrick, Morgan Schneiderlin and Ander Herrera in the two-man holding midfield. The record says that Schneiderlin SHOULD be a no-brainer given how United have performed with and without him in the starting eleven but Louis Van Gaal hasn't made Schneiderlin a permanent fixture despite that fact. Any combination of the three remains a distinct possibility as United continue to vie for a spot in the top four.

After accepting the charge of violent conduct, Mousa Dembele has been suspended by the FA for the next six games, ending the midfielder's season and carrying into the beginning of next season.

Dembele wanted to appeal for a lesser punishment but he gets a ban that is somewhat predicatable - one that is longer than the typical three match ban but one not as long as the ban Luis Suarez received for biting. So now we know where eye-gouging falls in the punishment spectrum. Dembele will miss Tottenham's final two matches this season and the first four next season. Depending on scheduling with league and cup play, he may only miss the first three league games of 2016/2017. Regardless, it is a major blow for Spurs as the Belgian has been an integral part of the club's success. Ryan Mason figures to fill in for the last two games this season against Southampton and Newcastle.
