For a few key players, here's what we're seeing heading into Gameweek 26:


Cardiff City vs. Aston Villa
Andrew Taylor is likely out for another week with his calf injury. Ron Vlaar looks likely to return from his hamstring injury, while Ryan Bertrand could miss out after hurting his ribs Saturday after colliding with a goal post.

Hull City vs. Southampton
Starting goalkeeper Allan McGregor remains out due to a red card suspension. Dejan Lovren and Gaston Ramirez are both out with ankle injury.

West Ham vs. Norwich City
Andy Carroll's appeal of his red card was denied, which means he'll be out until March. Kevin Nolan picked up a groin injury Saturday against Aston Villa, but it is not considered serious.

West Brom vs. Chelsea
Nicolas Anelka's knee injury will continue to keep him out, while Jonas Olsson is expected to return from a hamstring issue. Stephane Sessegnon continues to sit with a groin injury. Meanwhile, John Terry picked up a knock and was held out of Saturday's win over Newcastle, but Fernando Torres is expected to return from his knee injury.


Arsenal vs. Manchester United
Aaron Ramsey is still a few weeks away due to his thigh injury. Mathieu Flamini continues to serve his red card ban. Kim Kallstrom (back) is expected to make his Arsenal debut in March. Phil Jones was held out of Sunday's match against Fulham due to his concussion. Marouane Fellaini remains out with his wrist injury, although he's getting closer to a return. Jonny Evans has no public return date for his calf injury.

Everton vs. Crystal Palace
Romelu Lukaku is about two weeks away from returning from his ankle injury. Joel Ward picked up a knock in Saturday's match against West Brom, while Cameron Jerome was held out of that match with a knock of his own.

Manchester City vs. Sunderland
Samir Nasri (knee) and Javi Garcia are expected to return for City's FA Cup match against Chelsea on February 15. Fernandinho (leg) is hopeful to return for the match after that, while Sergio Aguero (hamstring) is out until March. Steven Fletcher doesn't have a specific return date from his calf injury, while Wes Brown could be out for awhile after picking up his third red card of the season Saturday (one was already rescinded).

Newcastle vs. Tottenham
Loic Remy's red card ban continues, while Yoan Gouffran (leg) and Papiss Cisse (back) are expected back. Mathieu Debuchy still doesn't have a timetable for return from his calf injury, but Fabricio Coloccini (knee) is expected to return at the beginning of March. Meanwhile, Spurs are expecting Sandro (calf) to return in two weeks. Vlad Chiricheș doesn't have a return date from his back injury.

Stoke City vs. Swansea City
Marko Arnautovic (ankle) and Marc Wilson (illness) are both due back. Michu (ankle) and Jonjo Shelvey (hamstring) were each expected to be back this past weekend, but it looks like they'll each need another week.

Fulham vs. Liverpool
Fulham are surprisingly healthy right now, while Liverpool's back four continues to fight injury. Daniel Agger (calf), Mamadou Sakho (hamstring), and Glen Johnson (ankle) are all expected back for next weekend's FA Cup match against Arsenal.
