Diame, who missed last Sunday's loss to Tottenham because of a knee injury, is expected to play this Saturday against Manchester United, the Hull Daily Mail reports.

Diame has been an excellent source of fantasy production this season and will get to face a Manchester United defense that has struggled this season, though they have played better of late.

Diame had scans on his injured knee come back negative and will be assessed in the days leading up to Hull City's match against Manchester United on Saturday.

The fact that there was no serious damage to Diame's knee is great news for Hull City as well as Diame fantasy owners. However, a matchup at Manchester United could limit his fantasy value if his playing time does not do it already.

Diame will undergo a scan on his knee after sitting out Sunday's match against Tottenham. Diame picked up the injury in training during the week and was unable to play against Spurs.

Diame had been a good fantasy option since transferring to Hull City this summer. While it is uncertain how much time he will miss, if any, his fantasy value would be low the next two weeks with matches at Manchester United and at Everton.

For a third consecutive league match, Diame led Hull City in shot attempts. The Tiger midfielder attempt two shots but was unable to put either on target during Saturday's 0-1 loss to Southampton.

The Hull City attack has been very anemic the past two weeks, but both matches have come against top competition (Liverpool and Southampton). Since Nikica Jelavic went down with an injury, Diame has led Hull City in shot attempts. With Jelavic out for the team's next match against Burnley, Diame will have a very good opportunity to get the Tigers into the back of the net.

Diame led Hull City with two shot attempts during Saturday's 0-0 draw against Liverpool. Unfortunately, neither attempt was on target as Diame was unable to take advantage of the limited number of opportunities the Tigers were able to generate in the draw.

Diame continues to be one of the better Hull City options to score each week, but it was a difficult task to score at Anfield. The Tigers' next match comes against a Southampton team that has allowed the fewest goals all season.

Diame showed excellent control as he dribbled through the Arsenal defense and chipped a shot into goal during the Tigers 2-2 draw with Arsenal on Saturday. The goal was Diame's only shot attempt as the Tigers were limited to just four shot attempts for the match.

Diame has been impressive since being inserted into the Hull City Starting XI. He has now scored four goals in his last five matches and is third on the team in shot attempts during that span. Four of Hull City's next five matches come against teams in the top-half of the table, but Diame remains one of the Tigers' best options to score each week.

Diame will be assessed by Hull City before Saturday's match against Arsenal after travelling from Tunisia for a Senegal match earlier in the week, reports Sky Sports. The check is just to assess his fitness as he is not dealing with any injuries.

Hull City will certainly need their star midfielder if they hope to avenge their FA Cup final loss from a year ago. Despite playing 87 minutes Wednesday for Senegal, he should be fit to play Saturday against the Gunners.

Diame headed home Andy Robertson's cross in the 60th minute of Hull City's 2-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

It was a clinical finish for Diame, who has now scored three goals in his last four games. Hull City are clicking right now, though they have a tough match at Arsenal after the international break.
