Philippe Senderos    D    Aston Villa
Senderos (thigh) will have a late fitness test ahead of Monday's match against QPR, the Independent reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Senderos has been sidelined since Oct. 9 with a lingering thigh muscle strain that he can't seem to get rid of. If he's ultimately not able to play Monday, his next opportunity to get back on the pitch will be against Tottenham on Nov. 2.
Andy Carroll    F    West Ham United
Carroll has returned to first-team training after recovering from his ankle injury and should be ready for a return to action in two weeks, reports the Daily Mail.

Fantasy Analysis

Carroll tore ankle ligaments in July, and will spend the next two weeks playing with the U-18 and U-21 sides to regain match fitness.
Victor Moses    M    Stoke City
Moses is still dealing with lingering hip issues and will face a late fitness test ahead of Saturday's match against Southampton, FOX Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Moses was able to play 73 minutes during Sunday's match against Swansea City, although his recurring issues with his hip have flared up during the practice week and are currently posing problems for his availability Saturday.
Paul Dummett    D    Newcastle United
Dummett (hamstring) will have a late fitness test ahead of Sunday's match against Tottenham, Chronicle Live reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Dummett initially suffered a hamstring injury over the most recent international break but made a return against Leicester City that seemed to suggest he had gotten over the injury bug. Despite the return against Leicester, Dummett is still dealing with the lingering hamstring issue that now threatens to sideline him from Sunday's match.
Claudio Yacob    M    West Bromwich Albion
Yacob has yet to return from Argentina where he is dealing with a family emergency, manager Alan Irvine told the Express & Star.

Fantasy Analysis

Yacob returned home prior to Monday's game against Manchester United and won't be back for Saturday's fixture with Crystal Palace. “He's not going to be back before this game. We are in contact with him – as much as we can whilst being compassionate as well,” manager Alan Irvine said. Yacob has yet to start a game so far this campaign therefore the news won't have much impact for fantasy managers.
Jonas Olsson    D    West Bromwich Albion
Olsson (achilles) is expected to miss this Saturday's game against Crystal Palace, manager Alan Irvine told the Express & Star.

Fantasy Analysis

Olsson (achilles) has been troubled by the problem for a number of years and the latest flare up could mean time for surgery. “It's been something that has been bothering him for some considerable time," manager Alan Irvine said. “He has had an injection, and if you can imagine getting an injection in your Achilles, it's not nice. He's in a bit of discomfort still." Olsson has been displaced from the side by the central defensive duo of Joleon Lescott and Craig Dawson and would only make the bench if he was fit.
Ben Foster    G    West Bromwich Albion
Foster will return to the starting XI for Saturday's game against Crystal Palace, manager Alan Irvine told the Express & Star.

Fantasy Analysis

Foster missed Monday's draw against Manchester United due to a calf problem but is now ready to take his place between the sticks. “Ben trained today and he's fine," manager Alan Irvine said. A game against Crystal Palace represents a good chance for him to pick up a fourth clean sheet of the season.
Adrian Mariappa    D    Crystal Palace
Mariappa should make the starting XI for Saturday's trip to West Brom.

Fantasy Analysis

Mariappa will deputise for Damien Delaney (suspension) who misses one game after a red card last time out. The defender plays alongside Brede Hangeland for the first time ever due to the fact Scott Dann (knee) is still out of action. Mariappa has one clean sheet so far this season though fantasy managers shouldn't expect a second one this weekend.
Brede Hangeland    D    Crystal Palace
Hangeland is set to start his second match in a row on Saturday at West Brom.

Fantasy Analysis

Hangeland replaced injured Scott Dann (knee) in last week's 2-1 loss to Chelsea and will continue to deputise this time out. With Damien Delaney (suspension) also out, Hangeland is expected to lineup alongside Adrian Mariappa at the heart of the Palace defence. It's worth noting Hangeland hasn't kept a Premier League clean sheet in eight games.
Damien Delaney    D    Crystal Palace
Delaney (suspension) won't play this Saturday against West Brom.

Fantasy Analysis

Delaney (suspension) was given his marching orders in the first half of last week's 2-1 defeat against Chelsea after picking up two yellow cards. Delaney and central defensive partner Scott Dann (knee) are both out and it will be down to Brede Hangeland and Adrian Mariappa to fill the void.
