Martin Skrtel joins a growing list of injured Liverpool defenders as he will need to be assessed over the next 48 hours before Brendan Rodgers can decide on his availability against Tottenham.
With a plethora of defenders heading into the season, Rodgers is finding himself quickly going from having a selection headache to now needing to piece together a healthy back line for Spurs. Should Skrtel miss out, Mamadou Sakho would most likely make his first start of the season and partner Dejan Lovren in the center of defense.
Brendan Rodgers has revealed that Adam Lallana will be in the squad for Liverpool when they travel to White Hart Lane to face Tottenham this weekend.
Rodgers went on further to say that the midfielder was still short of match fitness so you can rule out any chances of him starting. In fact, it is likely Lallana will not feature at all unless in an emergency situation as he is making a quicker-than-expected recovery from his knee injury.
Mauricio Pochettino's winning start as Tottenham manager continued as they thrashed AEL Limassol to clinch their place in the Europa League group stage.
That's four wins out of four games for Pochettino, and this victory was achieved while giving many key players a rest ahead of the match with Liverpool on Sunday. Harry Kane missed an early penalty but scored the opening goal on the stroke of half-time, before a Paulinho goal and Andros Townsend penalty made it 3-0 for a comfortable 5-1 aggregate win.
Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez can be picked up for a bargain price for the match against Leicester.
Withdrawn at half-time against Everton in Week 2, but Sanchez was much improved playing as the main striker in the Champions League victory over Besiktas as he grabbed the goal that took Arsenal through to the group stage. In the absence of the injured Olivier Giroud the Chilean may lead the line again at Leicester and he can be picked up for less than £5million in the Yahoo game.
Manchester United's Robin van Persie can open his goal account for the season against Burnley in Week 3.
The return to fitness of van Persie is likely to have a negative impact on Wayne Rooney's fantasy returns as the two men share attacking points, but you cannot ignore RvP at £12million when he has a match against Burnley. Especially when you remember the Dutchman will take penalty duty back from Rooney.
Nik Argiropoulos believes Stevan Jovetic will continue his excellent start to the season against Stoke in Week 3.
The striker displayed his class against Liverpool in Week 2, grabbing a brace to back-up the superb performance put in throughout pre-season. In this form Jovetic will be a starter for the foreseeable future and he can be added to your Yahoo team for almost half the cost of Sergio Aguero.
West Ham's Cheikhou Kouyate is showing signs of being a solid points scorer in the Yahoo fantasy format
West Ham boss Sam Allardyce reckons Kouyaté reminds him of Patrick Vieira, and the new man at Upton Park has put in two powerful midfield performances already. He's intercepting passes, winning tackles and has registered an assist and two shots on target in his first two games, suggesting he could prove a very handy fantasy option as the season progresses.
Dusan Tadic can continue his good fantasy form as Southampton travel to Upton Park to face West Ham in Week 3.
The summer signing from FC Twente is already showing signs of promise with a 12 point haul against West Brom in Week 2, containing a smattering of successful crosses and a couple of shots on target. Tadic is classed as a midfielder but had an excellent goal-scoring record in Holland and is lining up as a left-sided forward in Ronald Koeman's current system, so he's well worth a look for the Saints' trip to West Ham.
