Erik Lamela    M    Tottenham Hotspur
Lamela (groin) played 35 minutes off the bench in the crucial 0-0 London derby versus Chelsea on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

The Argentine returned to the team early second half but was unable to make a decisive impact in the tight game, recording merely two key passes and a dribble. He may be much better suited for the visit to the Baggies on Saturday, with a week of full training under his hat.
Kyle Lafferty    F    Norwich City
Lafferty is set to make another strong bid for first-team football in the Norwich U21's game.

Fantasy Analysis

The Northern Irish has struggled mightily to even get a crack at the 18-man squads for the Canaries this year. He's only had 27 total minutes of play in two games across all competitions. He scored last week for Norwich U21's versus Man Utd U21's and he's gonna have another chance to prove his worth with the youngsters Monday.
Russell Martin    D    Norwich City
Martin was available off the bench but remained unused sub in the home 1-1 draw with Arsenal on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Surprisingly, the starter was left on the bench. He missed a couple of games due to suspension and personal issues and hasn't played even a minute in November. Ryan Bennet has been starting in Martin's absence and probably his good run of form kept him on the field for the clash with the Gunners too. You can probably expect the Canaries to continue riding the hotter, and younger, legs of Bennet for the time being.
Philippe Coutinho    M    Liverpool
Coutinho (hamstring) is in contention to play Wednesday against Southampton in the Capital One Cup.

Fantasy Analysis

Coutinho missed this weekend's match due to the ailment, but he was never expected to miss significant time.
Santi Cazorla    M    Arsenal
Cazorla suffered a knee injury during Sunday's match against Norwich City.

Fantasy Analysis

Cazorla has been a rock in the Arsenal midfield this season, and while Mesut Ozil has been a huge fantasy contributor, Cazorla has still been able to produce in leagues that use peripheral stats. He will likely undergo scans to help determine the severity of the ailment, but it looks like he could definitely miss some time.
Daniel Sturridge    F    Liverpool
Sturridge was a 71st-minute substitute for Liverpool in the team's 1-0 win over Swansea on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

The striker has been plagued with injury troubles, and the appearances was his first under manager Jurgen Klopp. The appearance also came after Sturridge complained of another knock during the week, though. The manager has since criticized the player's ability to asses the difference between pain and injury.
Jamie Vardy    F    Leicester City
Vardy said that he is getting some kind of injury every week, but said he would not allow the niggles to force him to miss any game time, reports Sky Sports.

Fantasy Analysis

Vardy scored his 11th consecutive goal Saturday against Manchester United, and has dealt with a broken wrist and a hip issue while tallying the record-breaking total. He now has an opportunity to match an 83-year-ol scoring record by scoring in 12 games when he faces Swansea this Saturday.
Winston Reid    D    West Ham United
Reid had an unfortunate day on Sunday, as he let in an own goal in a 1-1 draw to West Brom.

Fantasy Analysis

Reid hasn't contributed a goal or an assist all season and this own goal adds to his poor season. What's even worse is that this Hammers team simply can't get a clean sheet right now. It was an unfortunate own goal, but if you were using Reid in fantasy, you had it coming.
Adrian    G    West Ham United
Adrian made three saves and conceded one goal to West Brom in a 1-1 draw on Sunday.

Fantasy Analysis

Adrian should have had a lean sheet here if it weren't for a silly own goal. This was one of the better defensive performances of the season for West Ham and hopefully its a sign of good things to come. The defense will have a tough time picking up a clean sheet in their next match as well, as they'll take on Manchester United next Saturday.
