The most recent Premier League fantasy news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisOxlade-Chamberlain had an injection in his groin earlier this week in order to aid in his recovery. If he's cleared to play, he could be inserted into the starting XI, as the Gunners are missing a number of attacking midfield options.
Fantasy AnalysisBalotelli is currently recovering from a groin injury and had a chance to return this weekend, but with Liverpool unlikely to appeal the charge, he will sit out and try to be available to face Burnley on Boxing Day.
Fantasy AnalysisThe 18-year-old midfielder was injured on debut in Saints' 1-0 loss to Burnley last weekend. With Southampton's squad decimated by injuries and suspensions, Hesketh could have been set to pick up more Premier League minutes had he not also suffered an injury.
Fantasy AnalysisWanyama was booked against Sheffield United on Tuesday evening. The Kenyan midfielder will be sorely missed in the Saints' midfield, especially as many others are missing through injury. He has scored three Premier League goals this season and is key to preventing other teams from playing.
Fantasy AnalysisTadic has featured in every Premier League game this season for the Saints and will be a big miss. The Serbian midfielder has contributed eight assists but has looked jaded recently and fatigue has clearly caught up with him.
Fantasy AnalysisPelle is Southampton's main attacking threat and leads the goalscoring chart with seven Premier League goals so far this season. The Italian striker missed Saints' 1-0 loss to Sheffield United in the League Cup on Tuesday and will be assessed before prior to the game.
Fantasy AnalysisDavis missed Southampton's midweek League Cup defeat to Sheffield United and will face a fitness test to judge availability. The Saints' squad is stretched and Koeman admitted that this injury was a result of fatigue caused by the fixture list.
Fantasy AnalysisBrunt (hamstring) is expected to be among the substitutes for the trip to the capital. “Brunty trained yesterday...I would expect him back for the weekend," Albion manager Alan Irvine said. The club captain has been hampered by injuries this season yet has still managed to tally four assists.
Fantasy AnalysisNaismith will now be at the club until the summer of 2019. He joined the team in 2012, and has six goals to his credit this season including one on his return to action Monday against Queens Park Rangers.
