Arsenal's Europa League successful campaign continued in Belgrade as the Gunners beat Red Star on a late, spectacular goal from Olivier Giroud.

The France international's chances have been few and far between in the Premier League but he showed in the late going that he still has some magic in his boots. It was no scorpion kick but it was an impressive quasi-bicycle with his left foot from a looping header from just wide of the net. The tally was important as the Gunners were on the verge of leaving the Serbian capital with only a point and at least giving Red Star some hope of topping the group. With the win, the Gunners open a five point lead in the Group H standings. The Gunners took advantage of a red card to Milan Rodic in the 80th minute. Without the dismissal it might have been an uncomfortable nil-nil draw. The win should give the Gunners freedom to play increasingly inexperienced line-ups as the group stage wraps up which will help with their Premier League efforts as the fixture schedule gets clogged up.

Southampton playmaker Dusan Tadic has claimed that his team are not mentally weak, though he admits that they are suffering from nerves in home games.

The Saints' home form is yet to show on upturn since Mauricio Pellegrino took charge, with just one win in five and few goals scored representing little change from the much-maligned reign of Claude Puel. The manager himself has called for extra aggression and speed against West Brom on Saturday to quieten the boo-boys at St. Mary's. "Sometimes we miss chances and then the opponents score the first goal and we become a bit nervous," explained Tadic. "This is may be one of the problems. I don't know really, but it's true when we're at home and away we need to be more aggressive and play much faster." The Serbian midfielder also spoke of his desire to give frustrated home fans something to cheer about from the first whistle as Southampton fans have continually criticised their side for pedestrian attempts to open opposition defences.

Brighton have made a decent start to life in the Premier League, remaining on target to survive with 8 points from their opening 8 games.

However, the Seagulls have just one point from a possible dozen on their travels and scored just one goal away from home, against Bournemouth. Club captain Bruno has publicly called on his teammates to improve on their paltry away returns on Friday when they travel to the London Stadium to meet West Ham: "We need to get some points away. That is so important. We’ve got a big chance on Friday. They (West Ham) have got a big squad and good players. It’s going to be another really tough game." Manager Chris Hughton was also keen to ensure that Bruno is not blamed for his foul which led to Everton's equalising penalty on Sunday insisting that those incidents happen all the time and that Bruno was unlucky not to get away with it. A win on Friday would see Brighton soar into the PL's top half.

Brighton midfielder Beram Kayal completed an hour for the U-23 team on Monday evening, heralding his return to action after 9 weeks on the sidelines.

The Israeli suffered a broken leg right at the end of the Seagulls' pre-season in a 3-2 defeat to Atletico Madrid at the AMEX. He subsequently had surgery to heal his fractured fibula. On Monday he scored from range in the 2-2 draw with Blackburn's reserves but Kayal is just relieved to be back in action: "I feel good and am happy to be back. It’s been a hard nine weeks, but I want to say thanks to the people that were there for me and supported me." Kayal also stated his intention to build up his fitness to force his way back into Chris Hughton's first team plans: "...I had two options - one, was to feel down, but the other was to fight back and be strong again. My choice was also going to be to fight and get back into the team."

Brighton centre-back Shane Duffy is surprisingly in with a chance of playing for his club against West Ham on Friday night.

Duffy limped off towards the end of The Seagulls' 1-1 draw with Everton on Sunday with a groin complaint. There were fears that the Republic of Ireland defender could miss a number of weeks with the injury. However, Chris Hughton gave a very positive update on Duffy's progress in his pre-match press conference on Thursday: "At the moment we think he'll be okay. He hasn't trained. We're hoping he'll train this morning." If Duffy comes through that session you can expect him to start against the Hammers.

As Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson continues to return to first team fitness after a knee injury, he looks forward to playing alongside Jermain Defoe.

Wilson, 25, scored a hat-trick in just 32 minutes for the reserves in a 4-2 win over Southend United in the Central League on Tuesday. Whilst he is yet to get back to the field for the first team, he has been training with the squad, including fellow forward Defoe. Wilson spoke of his admiration for Defoe and his career to date as well as the bond in the striker "department" at Bournemouth. Wilson added: "It would be good to play alongside him... You can learn a lot from him. He has been good in training, which is why the manager has been playing him and Kingy (Joshua King)." Wilson was also happy to report that he is "knocking on the door" and ready to get minutes for the first team once he's called upon.

Chelsea were dealt a triple injury blow on Wednesday evening although none are believed to be serious.

Speaking after his sides 3-3 draw with Roma in the Champions League, Antonio Conte responded to questions about David Luiz, who was enraged following his withdrawal on the hour mark. The Chelsea boss revealed his substitution was more of a precaution due to a calf complaint: "I think it was a good decision to try to protect him. Also, because, I repeat, in this moment it's very important to protect the players. Then I changed the system and I preferred to change." Tiemoue Bakayoko played the full 90 minutes, but Conte confirmed the midfielder has a minor groin issue while Gary Cahill finished the game with his head and chin wrapped in a bandage following a cut, although it’s "nothing serious" and the captain will be okay for Saturday. Victor Moses and N’Golo Kante [both hamstring] will miss the game against 4th placed London rivals Watford at Stamford Bridge.

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford will be assessed after he was forced off during the 1-0 win over Benfica in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

Jose Mourinho believed the 19-year-old was suffering from cramp when he went down in the 75th minute, but he later confirmed that Rashford was injured: "I thought it was muscular fatigue. But no, he told me he felt something in his knee. It didn't look to me like a big thing but we don't know." Phil Jones will also be checked ahead of the trip to Huddersfield as he continues to struggle due to an ongoing knee problem, although barring any further setbacks, the centre-back will be available. However, "it will be difficult" for Eric Bailly to make the trip while Saturday will come too soon for Paul Pogba [hamstring] and Marouane Fellaini [knee]. Marcos Rojo is said to be a "few weeks" away but his return is likely to be with the under-23s as he builds fitness.
