Diego Costa    F    Chelsea
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said after Tuesday's Champions League win over Maribor that he does not expect Costa (hamstring) to play Sunday against Manchester United.

Fantasy Analysis

Loic Remy, who has started the last two games in place of Costa, suffered a muscle injury during Tuesday's match after scoring a goal, leaving Didier Drogba as the likely starter against United on Sunday.
Loic Remy    F    Chelsea
Remy is not expected to play in Chelsea's Premier League match at Manchester United on Sunday after picking up a muscle injury in Tuesday's Champions League match against Maribor.

Fantasy Analysis

Remy injured himself on the opening goal of Chelsea's 6-0 rout and figured to be in line for another start with Diego Costa (hamstring) still sidelined. With both out, Didier Drogba, who replaced Remy after he suffered the injury Tuesday, could get the start, though he just returned from an ankle injury.
Loic Remy    F    Chelsea
Remy scored in the 13th minute of Chelsea's Champions League match against Maribor on Tuesday, but came off immediately after due to an adductor injury, according to Henry Winter of the Daily Telegraph.

Fantasy Analysis

Remy got the start in place of the injured Diego Costa (hamstring) but will be replaced by Didier Drogba, who has been battling an ankle injury of late.
David Ospina    G    Arsenal
Ospina has been ruled out for up to three months due to a thigh injury, the Mirror reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Ospina re-aggravated a thigh injury during Arsenal's most recent Champions League match, which will likely prevent his from being available until 2015. His absence adds to the Gunners' countless injury woes and leaves Emiliano Martinez as No. 1 goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny's understudy.
Andre Wisdom    D    West Bromwich Albion
Wisdom posted an assist in Monday's 2-2 draw against Manchester United.

Fantasy Analysis

Wisdom passed to Stephane Sessegnon for the attacking midfielder to slam the ball home in the 8th minute. The youngster has been an almost ever present in the West Brom defence and any assists are an added bonus on top of the expected healthy number of clean sheets.
Stephane Sessegnon    M    West Bromwich Albion
Sessegnon scored the opening goal in Monday's 2-2 draw with Manchester United.

Fantasy Analysis

Sessegnon scored from the edge of the area in the 8th minute after a pass from right back Andre Wisdom. Sessegnon has started the last four games and has made the number 10 role just behind the striker his own. Expect the Benin international to grab as many as half a dozen goals if he is kept in the side by manager Alan Irvine.
Chris Brunt    M    West Bromwich Albion
Brunt overcame a groin injury to grab an assist in Monday's 2-2 draw with Manchester United.

Fantasy Analysis

Brunt played in striker Saido Berahino in the 66th minute who made no mistake with the finish. Brunt returned home early from international duty and only resumed training over the weekend. The winger now has three assists on the season and the weekend's clash with Crystal Palace presents a good chance to embellish that number.
Saido Berahino    F    West Bromwich Albion
Berahino scored in the 66th minute of Monday's 2-2 draw against Manchester United.

Fantasy Analysis

Berahino was put through by captain Chris Brunt and slid the ball past United 'keeper David De Gea to give the home side a second half lead. The striker remains the top English goalscorer in the Premier League with six and should make it seven in this Saturday's game against Crystal Palace.
Daley Blind    M    Manchester United
Blind scored the equalizer in the 87th minute of Manchester United's 2-2 draw with West Brom on Monday.

Fantasy Analysis

Blind finally opened his account for United with the crowd-silencing finish, though it's unlikely a plethora of goals are on the horizon, as he plays a much more defensive role.
Marouane Fellaini    M    Manchester United
Fellaini came on for Ander Herrera at halftime and scored his first Premier League goal for Manchester United in their 2-2 draw with West Brom on Monday.

Fantasy Analysis

Fellaini has been a huge dud since joining United in the summer of 2013, and he seemed to be on his way out during this summer's transfer window until an ankle injury scuppered any move. It's still possible that he could move in January, but if he can keep up his good play, he may be able to play his way into a role on Louis van Gaal's side.
