Atletico confirm Costa injury
Atletico Madrid have confirmed that Diego Costa sustained a hamstring injury in Saturday's 1-1 draw against Girona and will continue to be monitored. The Spain striker was substituted just after the hour for Kevin Gameiro. Simeone said after the match that Costa had asked to come off due to injury, and the former Chelsea striker underwent further medical examinations on Sunday.
Neymar ruled out with pain in thigh
Neymar will miss Paris Saint-Germain's trip to Lyon on Sunday. According to a statement on PSG's Twitter account, the reason for Neymar's absence is pain in his right thigh, which comes after treatment for costal cartilage pain also ruled him out of the 1-0 win away at Nantes last weekend. The Brazil international played against Dijon between Nantes and Lyon, scoring four goals and assisting two more but the Ligue 1 leaders are taking no chances.
Emery also remains without Thiago Motta, who is yet to return to training after picking up an injury away at Rennes earlier this month. Hatem Ben Arfa has been ruled out with a left leg injury. However, the French capital outfit welcome Javier Pastore back for the first time since his late return from South America over the winter break.
Lanzini injury a concern for Moyes
David Moyes admits he is 'worried' about the extent of Manuel Lanzini's injury he picked up in the 1-1 draw with Bournemouth. Speaking after the game, the Scot said: "Lanzini is a worry. Because I'm worried that, it looks like a hamstring. We'll get it scanned tomorrow." West Ham have lost just once in their last six and are unbeaten in five in the Premier League, leaving them 11th in the table. Much of that is down to the partnership formed by Lanzini and his new strike partner Marko Arnautovic.
Umtiti set to return
Barcelona defender Samuel Umtiti has been cleared to play after recovering from a leg injury that sidelined him for seven weeks. Umtiti hasn't played since damaging a muscle in his right thigh during a 2-2 draw with Celta Vigo on Dec. 2. Thomas Vermaelen has played well in his place, helping the team to maintain its commanding lead of the Spanish league.
Man United sign Alexis Sanchez
Manchester United have completed the deal to sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal. Terms on the swap deal involving Henrikh Mkhitaryan were finalised on Saturday morning and Sanchez has travelled north to Manchester ahead of completing a medical on Sunday and agreeing terms on a lucrative four-and-a-half-year contract worth around £450,000 a week. United will pay a £20m transfer fee to Arsenal and £15m to the player's agent.
McCarthy suffers double leg break
Everton midfielder James McCarthy suffered a double leg break against West Brom on Saturday afternoon. The 27-year-old Republic of Ireland international had broken his tibia and fibula after Salomon Rondon's follow-through from a shot connected with his right leg. Medics rushed onto the field to treat McCarthy, with Rondon in tears having seen the after-effects close up.
"We'll do the operation as quick as we can," said manager Sam Allardyce. "He's paid a heavy price for his commitment there. A big blow for him and us. This will keep him out until next season at some stage."
Vallejo suffers hamstring injury
Real Madrid have confirmed that Jesus Vallejo is set for a spell on the sidelines after sustaining a hamstring injury. The defender picked up the problem during the first half of Thursday's 1-0 Copa del Rey quarter-final first-leg win at Leganes.
"Following the tests carried out today on our player Jesus Vallejo at the Sanitas La Moraleja University Hospital, he has been diagnosed with a muscular injury to his right hamstring," read a brief Madrid statement. "His recovery will continue to be assessed."
Suk out for several weeks
Troyes striker Suk Hyun-Jun is out for several weeks after suffering an ankle injury in the midweek loss at Angers. Just after coming on as a substitute the South Korean forward had to be stretchered off. The absence of their five-goal hitman means Troyes are considering dipping into the transfer market to boost their bid to stay in Ligue 1.
Coach Jean-Louis Garcia said: "We're in perpetual reflection but Suk's fairly serious injury has changed the situation. We won't sign a player for the sake of signing someone. The player will need to bring real added value and adhere to the economic and moral criteria at the club."
Courtois suffers ankle injury
Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has picked up an ankle injury and could miss Saturday's game at Brighton. The Belgian's injury is a further blow for the Blues, who are already without the sidelined Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas and the suspended Pedro and Alvaro Morata. Pedro and Morata must serve bans after both being sent off during Wednesday's FA Cup win against Norwich.
Filipe Luis suffers heel injury
Atletico Madrid full-back Filipe Luis is set for an extended spell on the sidelines after sustaining a heel injury in training. The Brazil international had only returned to full training after three weeks out with a hamstring problem picked up in the 1-0 La Liga defeat at Espanyol on Dec. 22. However, scans have shown that the 32-year-old has tendinitis in his left heel and will undergo treatment on the issue, but no timescale has been put on his recovery.
Van Persie to re-join Feyenoord
Robin van Persie will be returning to boyhood club Feyenoord from Turkish side Fenerbahce next week, the Dutch champions confirmed on Friday. The 34-year-old, who has scored 36 goals in all competitions since moving to Turkey in 2015, will sign a contract with Feyenoord on Monday to seal his return to the club where he began his professional career in 2002.
Carroll may require surgery
Andy Carroll faces another lengthy spell on the sidelines after West Ham manager David Moyes confirmed he may require surgery. The 29-year-old striker, linked with a move to Chelsea during the transfer window, has been absent from West Ham's recent fixtures with an ankle issue. This latest injury could force Carroll to undergo surgery, a procedure which would take him up to four months to recover from.
Shattenkirk to have knee surgery
Rangers defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk will have surgery on his left knee and is expected to be out indefinitely. The prized free-agent acquisition, who signed a four-year, $26.6 million deal to come to his hometown team, said Friday he has a meniscus tear in the knee that he has been playing through all season. The 28-year-old said he had a cortisone shot before the season that helped for a while, and then a platelet-rich plasma injection during the team's bye week earlier last week, but the knee didn't respond to the latter the way he hoped. He will have surgery on Monday and expects to be back before the end of the season.
Predators place Arvidsson on IR
The Nashville Predators have placed forward Viktor Arvidsson on injured reserve with a lower-body injury. The forward, who was injured during practice, ranks third on the team with 13 goals and fourth with 27 points. The Predators already have Filip Forsberg on injured reserve with an upper-body injury.
injuriesNBA : Minnesota Timberwolves : 21.1.18
Butler out with sore right knee
Jimmy Butler sat out Minnesota's game Saturday night against Toronto with a sore right knee. Butler is averaging 21.7 points per game for the revamped Timberwolves, who entered with the fourth-best record in the Western Conference. Butler missed two games earlier this season - his first with the Timberwolves - due to injury, and Minnesota lost them both by a combined 44 points. Jamal Crawford was also ruled out for Saturday night's game with a left big toe sprain.
Dunn in concussion protocol
Point guard Kris Dunn was re-evaluated for concussion symptoms and has been placed in the NBA concussion protocol, the Chicago Bulls announced Thursday. Dunn will be out indefinitely and will not travel with the Bulls to Atlanta for their Saturday game. Dunn took a hard fall late in Wednesday's 119-112 loss to the Golden State Warriors, landing face first after a dunk.
injuriesNFL : Tennessee Titans : 21.1.18
Titans hire Mike Vrabel as new coach
The Tennessee Titans hired Houston defensive coordinator Mike Vrabel as their new coach just five days after firing Mike Mularkey. This will be Vrabel's first head coaching job after 18 years in the NFL - 14 as a player and four as a coach. The Titans became the seventh NFL team to change coaches since the start of the season, and now they are the third to hire their replacement, joining Oakland and Chicago.
Sendejo limited in practice
Minnesota Vikings safety Andrew Sendejo is working his way back from a concussion that forced him out of the previous game. Sendejo took part in a limited portion of practice Thursday for the second straight day, after a hit to the head from New Orleans wide receiver Michael Thomas knocked him to the turf and out of the game. The Vikings beat the Saints to advance to the NFC championship game at Philadelphia.
