Sturridge to return in January
Daniel Sturridge is just two weeks away from returning to the Liverpool squad after injury. The 25-year-old has not featured for the Reds since August 31, having suffered an initial thigh injury whilst training with England. Sturridge has since suffered two setbacks in training, and has been recently sent to America to continue with his rehabilitation. The forward scored 22 Premier League goals last season.
Mason injury not as bad as feared
Tottenham Hotspur face an anxious wait to learn the damage sustained to Ryan Mason after the midfielder was replaced in the first half in the win over Burnley with an ankle injury. The 23-year-old was replaced by Benjamin Stambouli 43 minutes into Spurs' 2-1 victory at White Hart Lane, after appearing to twist his ankle following a first-half challenge. However, the British media reported Mason might even be in the frame for the Boxing Day fixture against Leicester City.
Tiote to miss Man United game
Newcastle United have been dealt a huge blow with the news that midfielder Cheick Tiote has been ruled out of the Boxing Day game with Manchester United due to suspension. Before the Tyne-Wear derby, Tiote was on four yellow cards and midway through the first half he was booked for an aerial challenge with Sunderland's Connor Wickham.
Saints will be without skipper Jose Fonte for the Boxing Day trip to Crystal Palace after the central defender was booked for the fifth time this season invoking a one match ban. However, Victor Wanyama and Morgan Schneiderlin will return from similar one match bans to give the squad a bit more experience, and they will be joined by Florin Gardos who has also served his one match ban for being sent off at Sheffield United.
M'Vila out due to flu
Inter midfielder Yann M'Vila missed the Lazio game due to a flu. He had to leave the hotel where the Inter players were ahead of the game and go home to rest.
Reveillere injured in warm-up
Sunderland defender Anthony Reveillere has been injured in the warn-up before today's game with Newcastle United. Sebastian Coates stepped in to replace the defender. It was a huge blow for coach Gus Poyet, who has had to change the back four and it left the Black cats with just six players on the bench.
Gervinho set for scans
Roma striker Gervinho is set to undergo scans to determine the seriousness of a right ankle knock suffered in a scoreless draw at home to Milan on Saturday. Gervinho hobbled off in the final minutes of the Stadio Olimpico clash. The 27-year-old striker is expected to be called up by Ivory Coast for the 2015 African Cup of Nations to be held January 17 to February 8.
Herrera confirms 'little injury'
Ander Herrera has confirmed he missed Manchester United's game against Aston Villa through injury. Louis van Gaal told reporters after the game that Herrera had suffered a new injury and although there is no confirmation on what type of injury it is, Herrera is confident it won't keep him out for a long time. Writing on his official Instagram account, Herrera said: "Well done mates! One more point to keep us in the top positions. I can't be with the team today due to a little injury, but I will be ready again soon. Cheers to everyone!"
QPR to assess Yun ankle injury
QPR will assess an injury picked up by Yun Suk-Young during their 3-2 win against West Brom. The South Korean left-back, 24, went off after hurting his ankle in the first half but Rangers are hopeful the problem will not prove to be serious. Yun has emerged as a key player for them this season - Saturday's game was his 10th Premier League appearance of the campaign.
Di Maria could play, Rojo out
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal confirmed Angel di Maria could play against Aston Villa but ruled out Marcos Rojo due to injury. United will travel to Villa on Saturday looking to extend their winning streak in the Premier League to seven matches but they will have to do without Argentinian defender Rojo, who is sidelined with a thigh injury. But in a boost for Van Gaal, Di Maria could be involved off the bench after completing a full week of training.
Manziel leaves game with hamstring injury
Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel left Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers after suffering a hamstring injury late in the first half. Manziel rolled to his left and dove for the sideline on the first play of Cleveland's fourth possession when he was hit hard by two Panthers defenders. He went to the locker room early and was ruled out of the game.
Niners place Borland on IR
San Francisco 49ers rookie linebacker Chris Borland will miss the final two games of the season because of an ankle injury. Borland, San Francisco's leading tackler, was hurt in last week's loss to Seattle. The third-round pick from Wisconsin didn't crack the starting lineup until Week 7, but still has a team-high 128 tackles with two interceptions, one sack and one fumble recovery. He was the NFL's top defensive rookie for November when he became the first player in 20 years to register 70 tackles and two interceptions in a calendar month.
Hansen collapses on bench
Vancouver Canucks forward Jannik Hansen collapsed on the bench during the second period of Saturday's game against the Calgary Flames. Coach Willie Desjardins said after the game that Hansen was evaluated at the hospital and appeared better.
Shortly after taking a hit from Calgary's Dennis Wideman, Hansen skated to the bench and remained hunched over. He appeared to go limp as his teammates helped and quickly banged their sticks on the boards for the officials to stop play. Medical personnel rushed to Hansen's aid and helped him into the locker room.
Kings put Regehr on IR
The Los Angeles Kings placed defenseman Robyn Regehr on injured reserve Friday with an upper-body injury. The 15-year NHL veteran was injured blocking a shot during Thursday's win over St. Louis.
The Kings recalled defenseman Jeff Schultz from the AHL's Manchester Monarchs to take Regehr's place on the roster. Schultz, a former first-round draft pick, appeared in 399 NHL games over seven seasons for the Washington Capitals between 2006-13.
Gallinari out indefinitely
Denver Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari has been diagnosed with a meniscus tear in his right knee and is out indefinitely. The news was unexpected, as Gallinari scored 19 points and helped lead the Nuggets to a win over the Pacers on Saturday. He had been limited this season with knee soreness. The sixth-year forward is averaging 7.8 points and 3.0 rebounds in 18.8 minutes per game, the lowest totals since his rookie year.
Rose and Gibson out against Grizzlies
Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose and forward Taj Gibson both missed a second consecutive game Friday night against the Memphis Grizzlies. Rose (illness) and Gibson (ankle) sat out Thursday's 103-97 win over New York and were held out of the lineup again because of the ailments. Rose missed his 10th game of the season, while Gibson sat out his ninth game due to injury.
