Kasper Schmeichel returned from injury in Leicester City's UEFA Champions League victory over FC Porto on Tuesday night.

Schmeichel regained his spot in the starting XI after he missed the Foxes' last three matches, due to a muscle injury. The Danish international recorded his second consecutive clean sheet in UEFA Champions League play in a match that saw him stop all three shots he faced. The 29-year-old will be in contention to make his Premier League return this Sunday when Leicester play Southampton at the King Power Stadium.

Islam Slimani's solo strike propelled Leicester City a 1-0 win over FC Porto in their first-ever UEFA Champions League home victory on Tuesday night.

Slimani continued his hot start for Leicester when he headed in Riyad Mahrez's cross in the 26th minute on their home UEFA Champions League debut. Slimani's goal was his third in four appearances for the Foxes' and his seventh in nine, across all competitions, against FC Porto. The Foxes' victory sits them top of Group G and two points clear of second-placed FC Copenhagen, who Leicester will face in their next Champions League fixture on October 18.

Fabio Da Silva and James Husband have returned to training for Middlesbrough while skipper Grant Leadbitter is also progressing well in his bid to return to fitness, according to manager Aitor Karanka.

Fabio, signed from Cardiff City last month, has been sidelined since he sustained a knee injury in his debut at Fulham in the EFL Cup in August. There was also good news provided on fellow defender Husband, who returned to training after rehabbing from a dislocated shoulder, and the club's captain Grant Leadbitter. Karanka said: "Grant is improving a lot, which is good news. It’s all very positive and he could be back sooner than we thought."

John Terry has returned to training and will be ready to play on Saturday when Chelsea play Hull City.

Terry had missed the Blues' last three matches with an ankle ligament injury, but is set to make his return in GW7. The 34-year-old will be welcomed back to the starting XI after Chelsea conceded five goals over the course of their last two league matches, which saw them suffer a pair of defeats to Liverpool and Arsenal. The skippers' return will allow Antonio Conte to use either a back three or, pair Terry with Gary Cahill, in a back four.

West Ham's defensive injury crisis has only gotten worse with the news that Havard Nordtveit won't be available this weekend.

While Aaron Cresswell and his replacement Arthur Masuaku recover from knee injuries, Nordtveit has been ruled out just for the week after undergoing an unspecified operation, meaning he will miss the club's weekend match with Middlesbrough. Nordtveit has started the last two matches at right-back, but Sam Byram is expected to return to the lineup while James Collins is also waiting in the wings with Alvaro Arbeloa having received his first start for the club at left-back last week.

Bournemouth will be happy to see the return of forward Joshua King this weekend against Watford, barring any injury setbacks.

The forward has missed the past week, including a League Cup match and the 1-0 win against Everton this weekend, with a knock, but manager Eddie Howe confirmed he is back in training ahead of the weekend trip to Watford. The Cherries have only scored four goals this season in six matches, without scoring more than one goal in a single game. Meanwhile, winger Marc Pugh is still recovering from a knock that will keep him out until after the international break. Said Howe: "Joshua King has done some light training this week. It's not too bad, while Marc Pugh is improving, but is still a couple of weeks away. Other than that we don't have many concerns."

Manchester United is close to arriving at full strength following the return of Anthony Martial with Henrikh Mkhitaryan close as well.

Manager Jose Mourinho confirmed Marital has recovered from an ankle injury that caused him to miss the club's last two matches last weeks to be fit to face Ukrainian side Zorya Luhansk on Thursday in the Europa League group stage: "He has now recovered from the contusion in his calf and in his ankle. He has recovered and is ready for tomorrow." Meanwhile, Martial could have some competition soon with Mkhitaryan close to a return from a thigh injury. The summer signing could possibly return this weekend, but will surely be available after the international break, barring an injury setback.

Bournemouth is already making their hopes to sign Jack Wilshere to a permanent deal known at the end of his season-long loan.

Bournemouth chairman Jeff Mostyn said he wouldn't rule anything out at the end of the season after the former Arsenal prodigy arrived on Deadline Day. He has gone on to play in five of the club's Premier League matches to start the season. "The best we can do is integrate Jack into the team and help him fulfill what he wants. Whether or not we will go beyond a season, I think everything is possible. You have to be realistic and Jack may well consider his home to be back at Arsenal...But if there is a possibility and Eddie Howe decides that he's somebody he wants to keep it will be up to him."

Hull City expects defender Michael Dawson to make his long-awaited return from injury after the international break.

The former Tottenham veteran suffered ligament damage in a preseason friendly in July, but he is working to be back for the club's Week 8 fixture against Bournemouth, which would likely move Jake Livermore back to midfield. "Although Michael missed a lot of last week with a virus, the plan remains for him to start training with the rest of the team next week and then hopefully, with some sessions under his belt, he’ll be available from the Bournemouth game after the international break onwards," Head of Medical Services Rob Price said. "He’s done really well in his recovery from this injury."

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola confirmed that defender Vincent Kompany has not suffered a massive injury setback.

The Manchester City captain sustained a groin injury in the late stages of the club's win against Swansea City, minutes after he asked to stay on instead of being subbed off. But the club expects Kompany to return for the next Champions League match with Barcelona after the international break. "They are injured, unfortunately they are not here but we are going to do our best to recover them as soon as possible," manager Pep Guardiola said. "It's not a big, big injury, so I think in a short time -- two, three, three-and-a-half weeks -- both will be ready to be with us."

The Theo Walcott redemption tour continued with a first half brace against Basel in the Champions League group stage.

Arsenal scored twice in the first half through Theo Walcott and then cruised to a 2-0 victory at the Emirates. With PSG also winning the result put the two clubs even atop Group A with four points and a two goal differential each. The only significant changes Arsene Wenger made was continuing with Granit Xhaka due to the injury to Francis Coquelin and bringing in David Ospina as has been his habit in the Champions League.

Arsene Wenger has indicated that Aaron Ramsey will definitely miss out on matches with Burnley and Basel before the international break.

Ramsey's hamstring injury suffered in Week 1 against Liverpool has lingered longer than expected and the Arsenal manager has indicated that the player won't make it back before the international break. With an extra week to recover, Ramsey should be available when the Gunners return to action against Swansea at the Emirates on October 15th. Given the strength and health of the current squad expect Arsene Wenger to be conservative in bringing Ramsey back from his injury.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has signalled his intention to play Zlatan Ibrahimovic twice this week.

The Swede will start Thursday's must-win Europa League clash with Zorya Luhansk as well as the Stoke game in Gameweek 7. Even though Zlatan is turning 35 on Monday, Mourinho believes that his body is able for the intensity since he will not be playing during the international break immediately after. Some FPL managers will fear that fatigue will affect the big man in this weekend's game - they had better hope the Red Devils are out of sight quickly tomorrow night so that their precious Zlatan is ready to inflic more misery on the Potters.

Jose Mourinho has revealed a few players who will not be able (by choice and necessity) to play in the Europa League against Zorya Luhansk this Thursday.

Luke Shaw was deemed unwell by the Man Utd club doctor and sent home from training today, this does not appear to be a serious setback for the young Englishman. Having confirmed that Wayne Rooney would play against Zorya earlier in the week, Mourinho has cast doubt on this as he has a back issue, which prevented him training yesterday. Mkhitaryan will not be in action in spite of training in the last few days. Anthony Martial has recovered from the calf injury which meant he didn't even make the squad for last weekend's Leicester victory.

Mike Phelan is not ruling out a defensive future for Jake Livermore who has made the successful transition from midfield maestro to ball-playing centre-back following a number of injuries at the start of the new campaign.

Livermore stepped in for the season opener against champions Leicester City and he hasn’t looked back since. Losing Michael Dawson and Harry Maguire [both ankle] in pre-season, and with limited options in a threadbare Tigers squad, Livermore slotted into the back-four to partner Curtis Davies and the 26-year-old has started every Premier League game even though Maguire is now fit. "I've never really had the conversation with Jake as to where he sees his future, whether that's in midfield or the position he's in at the moment," said Phelan. "He's taken to it really, really well. When we look at the games and we analyse, he's very comfortable there. He's added a certain amount of calmness to proceedings."
