N'Golo Kante had an absolutely incredible display against Arsenal earlier today.

Kante is a fantastic tackler and excels and regaining possession for his team. Rio Ferdinand tweeted during the match earlier that Kante is the best "tackler/retriever of the ball on the planet", and even though that might be a stretch, it shows just how good Kante has been. The Leicester midfielder doesn't do enough to be a fantasy star, but his on-pitch performance will keep him in the lineup going forward.

Jamie Vardy seems to have been promoted to be Leicester City's penalty kick taker.

Riyah Mahrez has had his struggled from the penalty spot so far this season and in today's match against Arsenal, Vardy was the one given the spot kick. Penalty duty increases Vardy's fantasy appeal, which is already high as one of the best strikers in the Premier League this season. He is a good target at the moment after a few slow weeks.

Danny Simpson was sent off in the 54th minute in Leicester's match against Arsenal today.

Simpson was sent off for a second yellow and after Leicester City were up 1-0 on Arsenal, but with only ten men, the Foxes couldn't hold on to their lead. Arsenal ended up scoring twice late in the game to take all three points. Simpson will miss the next match with a suspension but is not a fantasy option even when he returns.

Victor Moses impressed Slaven Bilic in his bench role in Saturday's 2-2 draw against Norwich City.

West Ham were losing 2-0 but it was Victor Moses that created the first goal in their comeback. The winger made a great run into the opposition box and placed a shot on target, which was then deflected into Dimitri Payet for an easy tap-in. Payet later assisted for the second goal to complete the comeback, but Moses was an integral part of the match. He has a good shot to start next gameweek.

Arsenal are waiting to learn the extent of the injuries suffered by defensive duo Laurent Koscielny and Gabriel Paulista.

Gabriel was a notable absentee from the Arsenal starting line-up which took on Leicester City at the Emirates on Sunday. The Brazilian had started the last three games grabbing his chance in place of the suspended Per Mertesacker after the German was given a red card for a professional foul on Diego Costa in game week twenty-three. However, it was the 31-year-old who was back to partner Koscielny in the early kick-off – the club later confirmed Gabriel had suffered a minor hamstring strain. But the partnership only lasted for forty-five minutes as Koscielny was forced off at the break having sustained a dead leg. Fortunately, neither seems too serious and Arsene Wenger remains hopeful that he will have at least one of those available for the FA Cup 5th round match with Hull City. If not, the crucial Champions league first leg tie against Barcelona three days later is the target.

Stoke City have been plunged into a defensive crisis following the loss of Glen Johnson and Marc Muniesa to injury on Saturday.

Muniesa failed to appear for the second half after tweaking his hamstring during the opening forty-five. Although the Spaniard will need a scan, Mark Hughes didn’t appear overly concerned post-match, revealing that Muniesa could return within 10-12 days. Fortunately, the Potters have a two week break after Crystal Palace dumped Stoke out of the FA Cup 4th round in January. However, the loss of Johnson will be a worry. Teammate Philipp Wollscheid accidentally landed on the full-back following a penalty box clearance and Johnson limped off with suspected knee ligament damage: "It looks like a long time out," Hughes said. The pair join Marc Wilson, Ryan Shawcross and Geoff Cameron in the treatment room and the Welsh boss will be hoping the break in Premier League proceedings will allow some of his walked wounded to recover before game week twenty-seven.

Raheem Sterling will have plenty of reason to complain about the penalty that gifted Spurs their first goal in Manchester City's 2-1 loss to title rivals Tottenham.

While it is technically true that the ball hit Raheem Sterling's elbow in or at least near the penalty area, the awarding of a penalty on the play was exceptionally harsh. The ball glanced off Sterling's back first and his arm was hardly in the proverbial "unnatural" position that usually dictates a penalty in such situations. Spurs took a 1-0 advantage on a well taken Harry Kane penalty and went on to win by a single goal. City will certainly not look kindly on a call that was, at best, questionable going against them in a title race that got that much tighter on Sunday with Leicester City, Spurs and Arsenal separated by two points.

Christen Eriksen broke a 1-1 deadlock late in the match and Spurs made North London two for two in Showdown Sunday clashes as Tottenham beat Manchester City 2-1 at the Etihad.

Spurs' first goal was as controversial as they come with Raheem Sterling questionably called for a penalty that may or may not have hit his arm at the very edge of the box. Harry Kane dispatched the penalty right down the middle of Joe Hart's goal for a 1-0 lead. City equalized through Kelechi Iheanacho's blast. It was down to Christen Eriksen, put in on Joe Hart's goal by an Erik Lamela through ball, to finish things off and he did so with style. Hugo Lloris was required to make one big save from Nicolas Otamendi in stoppage time but Spurs took all three points back to London.

Aston Villa may very well have taken the final nail today in their relegation coffin, as they were demolished in front of their home crowd with a 0-6 loss to Liverpool.

There were many empty seats at Villa Park today and the stadium's attendance only dwindled as the match wore on. The Reds attack, revitalized with the return of Daniel Sturridge, broke through the Swiss cheese defense of the Villans with ease. Mark Bunn was the unfortunate soul who watches six balls pass him by. He had done fairly well since replacing Brad Guzan, keeping three clean sheets in their previous five matches where they had conceded only three goals in total. Just when Villa looked like they might have a bit of fight in them to challenge to stay up this season, today's result pretty much books their ticket to the Championship.

Daniel Sturridge returned to the starting XI and scored the opening goal as Liverpool would go on to trounce Aston Villa on their ground, 0-6.

Sturridge grabbed the opener in the 16th minute, heading in a cross from Philippe Coutinho. James Milner would score from a free kick nine minutes later. It stayed that way until the 58th minute, and then the Villa defense went to complete shambles, as the Reds would score four times over the next 13 minutes. Goals came courtesy of Emre Can, Divock Origi, Nathaniel Clyne and Kolo Toure. Jordan Henderson and Roberto Firmino each had and assist while Coutinho collected three. In all, nine of ten outfield players had a part in the six goals, something you don't see every day. No need to rush out and invest in Liverpool however, they have a blank in Week 27.

Leicester City, especially Kasper Schmeichel, played well enough to win but mistakes from Danny Simpson and Marcin Wasilewski spelled doom for the Foxes at the Emirates as Arsenal staged a late comeback to win 2-1.

The Premier League leaders had a chance to put real distance between themselves and Arsenal and going into halftime, it looked like they would do just that. Jamie Vardy earned and then scored a penalty in the 45th minute for a 1-0 lead that sucked the life out of the Emirates. Danny Simpson gave the Gunners new life when he was sent off in the 54th minute. It took 16 minutes before Theo Walcott took advantage of the mistake. To heap on additional misery, Marcin Wasilewski committed a needless foul on Nacho Monreal in the dying seconds of stoppage time to gift Arsenal one last chance on goal. Mesut Ozil put in an exceptional cross and Danny Welbeck got the slightest of touches to win the game with virtually the final play of the match.

Danny Welbeck returned to the Arsenal squad with the decisive goal deep in stoppage time to see off top-of-the-table Leicester City.

It was billed as a must-win for Arsenal if they wanted to stay in the title race and win they did, but just barely. After going down a goal in the first half to a questionable penalty, the Gunners got a break when Danny Simpson was sent off for a second yellow card early in the second half. Olivier Giroud set up Theo Walcott to level out the Jamie Vardy penalty goal. It looked like the match would end 1-1 until an ill-advised Marcin Wasilewski foul on Nacho Monreal in the fourth minute of stoppage time gave Arsenal a free kick in a dangerous spot. Danny Welbeck got the faintest of touches on Mesut Ozil's cross but it was enough for an Arsenal win on the last kick of the match.

John Terry suffered a muscular injury in Chelsea's huge win over Newcastle today and is questionable for the upcoming match against Paris Saint-Germain.

Terry suffered the injury early in the match but played through it for a period of time before signaling to be subbed off. The fact he was able to continue for several minutes makes us think this may not be a serious injury, but we won't know until later in the week. Chelsea face PSG on Tuesday and if Terry can't go, Branislav Ivanovic is likely to move to center-back once again.

Graziano Pelle started ahead of Charlie Austin today but did not score in his 74 minutes on the pitch.

Pelle and Austin are battling for the starting job at the moment and it seems like Pelle is currently in the lead. The Southampton strikers haven't been great fantasy contributors as of late, but there is potential for them as they face Bournemouth, Sunderland, and Stoke City in three of their next four matches. Both strikers are worth holding onto in season long leagues.

Sadio Mane and Dusan Tadic have been relegated to bench roles as Southampton continue playing well.

Tadic and Mane were the stars for Southampton early in the season but both have dropped in form and were on the bench today. It's hard to trust either in fantasy right now, but both possess enough quality to be kept in season-long leagues. In daily leagues, a great target at the moment is James Ward-Prowse, who is on corner kick duty.
