Andre Schurrle    M    Chelsea
Representatives from German side Wolfsburg have arrived in London to complete a deal for Schurrle, reports the Daily Mail.

Fantasy Analysis

The midfielder reportedly wants to leave Chelsea, and was left out of the side that lost in the FA Cup to Bradford. The German side's representatives met with Schurrle's father on Monday, and lodged a 23 million bid earlier for the player.
Adnan Januzaj    M    Manchester United
Manchester United rejected a new transfer bid for Januzaj from Paris Saint-Germain, reports the Daily Mail.

Fantasy Analysis

Januzaj has been linked to PSG multiple times, but Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has said that the young midfielder will not leave this winter. There was earlier speculation that Januzaj may leave for a loan, but even that move appears unlikely now.
Victor Valdes    G    Manchester United
Valdes started his first official match for Manchester United in a U21 win over Liverpool on Monday, reports Sky Sports.

Fantasy Analysis

Valdes helped the side win 2-1, failing to keep a clean sheet due to a shot by Jerome Sinclair. It was the keeper's first appearance since officially joining the team earlier this month.
Gylfi Sigurdsson    M    Swansea City
Sigurdsson has four goals and eight assists on 21 Premier League appearances this season.

Fantasy Analysis

Sigurdsson is currently tied for second-most assists in the Premier League. He and his teammates will resume the Premier League season this Sunday against Southampton, a team that is only allowing 0.73 goals per match.
Lukasz Fabianski    G    Swansea City
Fabianski has eight clean sheets and 74 saves over 21 Premier League appearances this season.

Fantasy Analysis

Fabianski is currently tied for second-most clean sheets this season. He'll continue starting in net Sunday against Southampton, a team that is scoring 1.68 goals per match.
Jefferson Montero    M    Swansea City
Montero (hamstring) returned to the pitch Saturday against Blackburn in FA Cup action.

Fantasy Analysis

Montero was subbed onto the pitch in the 62nd minute of Saturday's match after being relegated to the sidelines with a hamstring injury since Boxing Day. He seems to be in full health moving forward as Swansea picks up Premier League play against Southampton on Sunday.
Danny Ward    G    Liverpool
Ward has not been deployed in any matches for Liverpool this season.

Fantasy Analysis

With the current injury to Brad Jones (thigh), Ward is the main backup to Simon Mignolet. It's still unlikely that the 21-year-old Ward would be called into action this season, although he'll get thrown into the fire if Mignolet were to get bounced from any upcoming match.
Raheem Sterling    M    Liverpool
Sterling has four goals and five assists over 20 Premier League starts this season.

Fantasy Analysis

Sterling seems to be the favored striker at Liverpool when considering that he's taken 52 shots this season, 21 of which were on goal. He and his teammates will pick up the Premier League season against West Ham on Saturday, a team that is conceding 1.14 goals per match.
Simon Mignolet    G    Liverpool
Mignolet has six clean sheets and 47 saves over 20 Premier League matches this season.

Fantasy Analysis

Mignolet may be in danger of losing his job as the starting keeper when Brad Jones (thigh) returns to health, although Mignolet has seemingly upped his play of late, only giving up two goals in Liverpool's past five matches. He'll be the likely starter when Liverpool returns to Premier League play Saturday against West Ham, a team that is averaging 1.59 goals per match.
Rickie Lambert    F    Liverpool
Lambert has scored two goals over 17 Premier League appearances this season.

Fantasy Analysis

Lambert has only taken 13 shots on the season. Most importantly, he's been relegated to the bench of late and is seeing his value decrease as the season progresses.
