Ben Hamer made his first Premier League start in over three years and kept a clean sheet as Leicester City drew 0-0 with Southampton on Thursday.

Leicester boss Claude Puel made five changes to the side that were beaten by Burnley, including three in defense. Captain Wes Morgan was dropped for Aleksander Dragovic and midfielder Marc Albrighton came in for regular right-back Danny Simpson, while Hamer filled in for the injured Kasper Schmeichel. Southampton failed to truly test the Foxes defense, but the stand-in Hamer was on hand to stop both shots he faced. Speaking after the match, assistant manager Michael Appleton spoke on the wholesale changes. "From the manager’s point of view it is a good opportunity for him to freshen things up," he explained on LCFC radio. "He has given opportunities to some of the other players who have been waiting a while, so it was up to them to go and take it."

Marcos Alonso will miss the FA Cup semi-final against Southampton on Sunday after being handed a three-match retroactive ban for violent conduct.

The incident occurred in the first-half of Chelsea's 3-2 Premier League win at Southampton on Saturday when TV footage showed Alonso catching Shane Long with his studs up. The 27-year-old denied the charge and further said that if proven guilty the suspension would excessive, but his appeal was rejected following an independent commission hearing on Wednesday. In his absence against Burnley on Thursday, Emerson was handed his first PL start. Alonso will be eligible to return on May 6 against Liverpool, meaning he will miss Sunday's FA Cup semi-final clash with Southampton and trip to Swansea City next weekend.

Burnley's five-match winning run came to an end after a 2-1 home defeat by Chelsea on Thursday.

Burnley were put under pressure by Chelsea's two-man attack of Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud throughout the first-half, but it was Kevin Long's unfortunate own-goal that allowed the visitors to take the lead. Chelsea had a golden chance to double their advantage 10 minutes after the restart, but dodged a bullet when Morata fired wide in one-on-one with Nick Pope. The Clarets made the most of the miss when Gudmundsson let fly with a long-range effort on 64 minutes, which flicked off Barnes and found the bottom corner of the net. Chelsea quickly struck back to regain the lead and settle the match though, as Victor Moses drilled home from inside the area at the near post on 69 minutes.

Chelsea continued their push for a top-four finish with a crucial 2-1 win at Burnley on Thursday.

Antonio Conte made six changes from the side that beat Southampton at the weekend. Eden Hazard dropped to the bench, Emerson was brought in for Marcos Alonso, and Olivier Giroud paired with Alvaro Morata in a two-man attack. Chelsea took the lead on 20 minutes when Victor Moses' cross deflected off Burnley defender Kevin Long and over the line for an own-goal. After Alvaro Morata missed a one-on-one chance with Nick Pope earlier in the second-half, the Clarets equalized when Johan Berg Gudmunddson's shot took a deflection off Ashley Barnes and nestled into the bottom corner. However, the visitors got the decisive goal five minutes later. Emerson provided the cross for Moses, who collected the ball and smashed it home at the near post. Chelsea now trail fourth-placed Tottenham by five points with four matches remaining.

Southampton's fight for Premier League survival suffered another blow on Thursday as a poor performance away to Leicester resulted in a 0-0 draw.

Leicester dominated the first half and had better chances, the best of which fell to striker Kelechi Iheanacho but he failed to convert. Shane Long had a good chance for the Saints after the half-time interval but stand-in Ben Hamer was able to match his shot. Tadic and Soares were equally unsuccessful with the chances which fell to them. Jamie Vardy was unable to score to extend his recent purple patch either, as Alex McCarthy stopped his effort. A nil all draw makes little difference to Leicester, but for Mark Hughes' Saints it's another set of crucial points dropped.

Jack Wilshere faces a late fitness test after missing the 2-1 defeat at Newcastle last weekend because of injury.

Arsenal take on London rivals West Ham at the Emirates and Arsène Wenger will use this game as preparation for Thursday nights Europa League semi-final tie against Atletico Madrid. "I rested some players after the Moscow match, and they will need a game......" That should include the likes of Mesut Ozil, Laurent Koscielny and Hector Bellerin who were omitted from the matchday squad at St James' Park. Henrikh Mkhitaryan [knee] is running again and "he will be assessed over the next 4-5 days." David Ospina has fully recovered from his recent ankle problem but there is some uncertainty over Jack Wilshere who has an ankle injury. Even though Aaron Ramsey [shin laceration] is yet to train with the group, "he will be available" on Sunday. Santi Cazorla continues his rehab in Spain and there is still hope that he can return to the club before the end of the season, although he will not feature during the run-in.

Mark Hughes welcomes Steven Davis back into the fold after more than two months, but the Saints travel to Leicester City without Mario Lemina and Sofiane Boufal.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Mark Hughes confirmed Davis "is back in the group" although admittedly he hasn’t trained a great deal and lacks match-fitness. The Northern Ireland international sustained a hamstring strain back in February and was poised for a return in game week thirty-three at Arsenal, when he suffered a setback, injuring his Achilles. Following a couple of decent performances, but not results, Southampton need at least 3 wins from their last five games and can ill afford to lose at the King Power on Thursday with Manchester City still to play. However, they face Leicester without the services of Lemina who has "an issue with his back" affecting his hamstring, and Boufal, who is ill. Following the return of Sam McQueen to the matchday squad on Saturday, Southampton have no other injury concerns.

The Belgian forward was 9n the bench to start but came in to put away United's 2-0 win over Bournemouth.

With the World Cup looming Lukaku's form was of some concern as the second half of the season hasn't been particularly prolific by his or United's standards. Everyone from Jose Mourinho to Roberto Martinez will be happy to see Lukaku score as the season winds down.
