Etienne Capoue rediscovered his scoring touch as a second half goal proved to be the only tally as the Hornets beat La Liga side Eibar 1-0 in Austria.

Etienne Capoue certainly showed that he loves the early season last year when he started off the Premier League campaign scoring goals like a center forward. While his prolific scoring pace didn't last a season ago he seems to be warming up again with the weather as he netted for Marco Silva's side. Of interest for those tracking potential early-season starters, Silva has been going with Stefano Okaka in Troy Deeney's injury-enforced absence and Steven Berghuis has been playing in a supporting role from the start in the pre-season. Could be nothing but there could be some way under-the-radar value there.

Jay Rodriguez was one of a number of West Brom attackers to narrowly miss scoring as Albion fell 2-0 to a pair of deflected Crystal Palace goals in the Premier League Asia Cup pre-season tournament.

Hopes are high that Jay Rodriguez can shake off a couple of seasons lost to injury and be the prolific forward that West Brom have lacked since Romelu Lukaku left and Saido Berahino failed to capitalize on his early promise. There were some positive signs for both Rodriguez and Albion overall despite the 2-0 loss. Matt Phillips once again played without injuring himself. Rodriguez and Rondon were both dangerous and Nacer Chadli started despite rumblings of discontent earlier in the summer.

Mame Biram Diouf has been off to a hot start with two goals in his past two pre-season friendlies. His latest was the only goal in the Potters' victory over Ligue 1 newcomers Amiens.

The Potters should have been the favorites against a newly promoted Ligue 1 side and they were the dominant side on the afternoon. In addition to Diouf's goal, Bojan and Xherdan Shaqiri both had solid chances to add to the tally for Mark Hughes side. While pre-season isn't always indicative of much, Stoke City have some openings in attack with Jon Walters and Marko Arnautovic both having departed so far this summer. Given Crouch's age and Berahino's lack of goals last season, Diouf could finally be the man at Stoke City.

West Ham officially announced a move for Stoke City winger Marko Arnautovic for a club-record £24 million fee.

The Austrian international joins on a five-year deal after the Hammers saw their third bid accepted following his transfer request and becomes the third signing of the summer after Pablo Zabaleta and Joe Hart. The 28-year-old recorded six goals and five assists last season after his breakout 2015/16 season where he scored 11 goals. Said Arnautovic: "Everyone knows that West Ham is a big club, with a big history and I'm happy to be a part of it now. I can't wait to get started...I can only say it is a massive club with a lot of fans. They are crazy for football and this is what I like. The club is still growing, getting better and better and that's why I'm here."

Manchester City is wasting no time or money this summer when it comes to reshaping an aging back-line.

Just one week after breaking the world record fee for a defender in a £50 million move for Tottenham right-back Kyle Walker, Manchester City has seen its £52 million bid for Monaco left-back Benjamin Mendy accepted with the 23-year-old set to take a medical at the club. And that's not all: Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane confirmed that right-back Danilo has left the club's preseason training camp in Los Angeles to take a medical at Manchester City after agreeing to a £26.5 million move, which will take the Sky Blues' spending beyond the £200 million mark this summer. The moves cement Aleksandar Kolarov's exit from the club as the left-back has travelled to Boston to complete a move to AS Roma.

Arsenal were well beaten by Chelsea 3-0 at the Bird's Nest Stadium as they concluded their tour of Australia and China on Saturday.

There really weren't many positives to take from the match other than that the club seemed to be largely recovered from the digestive issues that struck them earlier on tour. The attack never really got going as the defending Premier League champions pressed from the kickoff. The defense was let off on a couple of botched Chelsea breaks in the early going but their luck didn't hold as first Willian and then Batshuayi scored within minutes at the end of the first half. The second half didn't start any better as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain slipped trying to defend Marcos Alonso allowing the Spaniard a clear run at goal that saw him center for Batshuayi who scored his second from distance for the final 3-0 scoreline.

Marko Arnautovic has passed his medical ahead of his club-record move to West Ham, which is expected to be finalized on Saturday.

Sky Sports News is reporting that Arnautovic has agreed a five-year-deal, worth £26m, and will become West Ham's highest-paid player once his move is completed. Having failed with two previous bids for the winger, the Hammers were able to reach an agreement with Stoke City on their third approach, which could rise to a fee as high as £25m. Arnie, who handed in a transfer request in order to force through a move, will join Javier "Chicarito" Hernandez as the newest players to seal a move to the London Stadium. Arnautovic and Chicarito are expected to compete for spots in Slaven Bilic's starting XI, with the former likely to operate on the wing and the latter partner up front alongside Andy Carroll.

Chelsea confirmed on Friday Alvaro Morata has completed his move from Real Madrid and signed a five-year contract with the Premier League champions.

The 24-year-old Spain international joins The Blues on a deal reportedly worth an initial £58 million to become the club's third major signing of the summer, following the addition of Antonio Rudgier and Tiemoue Bakayoko. Morata arrives at Chelsea after scoring 20 goals in all competitions and winning both La Liga and the Champions League with Real last season, following two successful years at Juventus. Brought in as a direct replacement for his international team-mate Diego Costa, who has been told he no longer has a future at Stamford Bridge, Morata is expected be Antonio Conte's primary striker when the season kicks-off next month. Given his previous displays at the highest level, he will be a coveted options in all formats of fantasy.
