Gerard Deulofeu is back to training this week but only by himself and won't be back to training with the team until next week meaning he won't feature in Week 6 against fellow newly promoted side Fulham at Craven Cottage.

The Hornets suffered their first defeat of the season to Manchester United last weekend and look to rebound at Craven Cottage against Fulham. They will do so without Gerard Deulofeu who continues to miss out with hip and groin injuries. The Hornets should still be favored given their performances from Weeks 1-4. The big difference is the likely future of Deulofeu who went from likely starter over the summer to looking more like an impact substitute once he returns given the club's success without him.

Josh Murphy, still recovering from a lingering hamstring injury, faces a late fitness test ahead of the Bluebirds match against champions Manchester City on Saturday.

Neil Warnock's side will be hard pressed to get a result no matter which of their players are healthy and which are not. Such is the power of Pep Guardiola's Manchester City, especially coming off of a frustrating mid-week Champions League result. Murphy, nor any of his teammates, are likely to be terribly productive regardless of health so probably best to ignore them for fantasy purposes even if you suspect that they'll be fully healthy.

Wolverhampton Wanderers are fully healthy ahead of their visit to Manchester United on Saturday.

The Red Devils dispatched one surprising side clad in yellow and black last weekend when they handed Watford their first defeat. Now "yellow" becomes "old gold" and Wolves are the club with the small reputation trying to topple one of the Premier League's giants. Nuno Espirito Santo has been blessed with strong health and the ability to run out the same starting line-up week after week with talented reserves waiting in the wings. This is a huge plus when trying to take advantage of the seeming weakness that could be exploited at Old Trafford as Manchester United continue to search for their best starting eleven. Look for an unchanged starting side.

Lucas Torreira looked great in his initial Arsenal start in mid-week but will have to be assessed ahead of Premier League Week 6 after taking two hits to the knee in Europa League action.

Supporters have been calling for new signing Lucas Torreira to start for the Gunners since the first week of the season. Until mid-week in Europa League action, Unai Emery has ignored their pleas. Torreira has looked excellent as a substitute in the minutes he has gotten in the Premier League and, if he recovers, should be in line to get his first league start in Week 6 against Everton at the Emirates.

Bernd Leno got his first Arsenal start in mid-week in Arsenal's 4-2 Europa League win but don't look for the trend to continue into the Premier League.

The trend among "big" clubs seems to be to have a league goalkeeper and a cup goalkeeper. The luxury version of this situation is Real Madrid having three-time defending Champions League winner Keylor Navas starting in La Liga and newly arrived Thibaut Courtois playing in Champions League and domestic cup competitions (presumably). At Arsenal, the rotation isn't quite as glamorous but it appears that Unai Emery will be deploying Petr Cech as his Premier League goalkeeper while Bernd Leno earns his stripes at the club in the Europa League and the FA and League cups.

Sead Kolasinac is probably about three weeks away from a return to active duty with Arsenal after a significant knee injury.

The left back went out in the pre-season scuppering his chance to claim the starting left back spot under new boss Unai Emery. Nacho Monreal was out for much of the pre-season while Kolasinac was healthy so it isn't clear who Unai Emery might prefer when both are healthy. For those who think highly of Kolasinac's chances of being a productive starter, next week will probably be the time to pick him up in draft fantasy leagues as the club awaits his return.

West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini has remained hopeful that Marko Arnautovic will be fit to face Chelsea on Sunday.

The Austrian international was taken off with a knee injury just after the hour mark after recording a goal and an assist against Everton last weekend. However, the winger is not expected to miss much time with West Ham even hoping to have their leading scorer back when they host Chelsea this weekend. "Marko finished with a problem behind his knee against Everton," Pellegrini said. "He’s having some treatment and we will see if he can be fit for Sunday. I think Marko played very well against Everton and we hope he will have recovered for the next game." If Arnautovic is unable to go, Lucas Perez could be handed his first West Ham start as Chicharito recovers from illness.

Dejan Lovren has resumed training after recovering from a pelvic injury that has kept him sidelined since this summer's World Cup.

Lovren was spotted participating in drills at Melwood in Liverpool's first training session since defeating PSG in Champions League action this week. After helping Croatia make it to the World Cup final, Lovren looked poised to partner Virgil van Dijk for the 2018/2019 season more often than not, but two factors are going to make things difficult. For one, Joe Gomez, who has been playing Lovren's spot, has been rock solid thus far, and it will be tough to supplant him. Then, Lovren has the distraction of being involved in a criminal investigation in which he and Croatian teammate Luka Modric allegedly provided a false statement - a perjury charge that carries anywhere from six months to five years in prison. Joel Matip, who has made three straight one-minute cameos in league play, remains the primary backup at center back.

Jamaal Lascelles faces a race against time to be fit for the trip to Selhurst Park.

The United skipper rolled his ankle in the warm-up, prior to last weekend's game against Arsenal, but managed to play through the pain barrier in the opening forty-five minutes before finally succumbing to the injury. If the centre-back does miss out, then his replacement on the day - Ciaran Clark – is favourite to come into the side following his late headed goal. Fabian Schär could be added to the matchday squad to provide back-up from the bench. Newcastle find themselves in the relegation zone, and unless results start to pick up quickly, Rafa Benitez’s men could find themselves cut adrift having only managed to secure a single point [0-0 at Cardiff] this season. Florian Lejeune [ACL knee injury] is the only definite absentee heading into game week six but Jonjo Shelvey will be checked again as he struggles to overcome the niggling muscular issue which has kept him off the pitch for over a month.

Erik Durm should be back in contention for Huddersfield Town on Saturday after injury ruled the German defender out of the clash with Crystal Palace.

David Wagner was speaking after his sides disappointing 1-0 home defeat by the Eagles in which he confirmed Durm had "unfortunately" picked up a back problem during the final training session ruling him out of the game. "It looks like it isn't serious. Hopefully he will be back at the beginning of the next week for training." Injury-wise the Terriers are looking pretty good, but Wagner will need to check on Terence Kongolo who, despite picking up an early knock last Saturday, came through 90 minutes. "I think he will be fine." Huddersfield travel to the King Power this weekend, and with no wins on the board, Wagner will be looking to avoid a repeat of the New Year’s Day defeat which saw Leicester cruise to a comfortable 3-0 win.

Antonio Valencia will not be risked in the Champions League on Wednesday evening, but Jose Mourinho confirms Luke Shaw is in line for a recall.

The United manager revealed that the club captain was the only player missing from the squad as he needed to be protected from the Young Boys’ Stade de Suisse surface because of his clinical situation. "His knee is not a knee that needs an artificial pitch." Despite being medically cleared to play at Watford, Luke Shaw did not travel with the squad to London last weekend, however, Mourinho has confirmed the full-back will feature tonight. Marcus Rashford, who is currently serving a domestic ban, is also pencilled in for a place in the XI while Romelu Lukaku, Juan Mata, Alexis Sanchez and Anthony Martial will compete to fill the remaining attacking places. Following 90 minutes for the development side on Friday, Diogo Dalot "has a chance" to play his first competitive game for the club having recently recovered from knee surgery.

Pascal Gross is likely to miss out again this weekend as his recovery from an ankle injury takes longer than initially anticipated.

The Brighton set-piece specialist was a surprise omission from the squad which arrived at Southampton on Monday after he failed to recover from the knock he suffered [vs Fulham] before the international break. "He got a kick in the last game which has ended up a little bit more troublesome than we thought," revealed Chris Hughton. "It’s certainly nothing that is going to be longer term. We’ll look at what progress he makes over the next week but certainly it’s not one that is going to keep him out for a number of games." The Seagulls made a single change at St Mary’s with Mali Bissouma replacing the German, and the Brighton boss may be tempted to stick with the same XI following a 2-2 draw. Florin Andone won’t be too far away after his run out for the under-23s while Jose Izquierdo has also returned to training following a recent knee problem.
