Trending: Diego Costa back for Chelsea, Memphis Depay leaves United

FC's Stewart Robson and Paul Mariner have differing opinions on how Diego Costa's teammates will view him after his absence.
Alison Bender and Gab Marcotti discuss whether moving to the Chinese Super League would be the right move for Diego Costa.
Ian Darke thinks it's probable that Chelsea will relieve tensions with Diego Costa and continue unscathed.

CHELSEA: Antonio Conte has confirmed Diego Costa will be available for Chelsea's Premier League game against Hull City on Sunday.

MAN UNITEDLyon have signed Memphis Depay from Manchester United and presented the Netherlands international on Friday after he signed a four-and-a-half-year contract, the club confirmed in a statement.

Tarkowski providing Sean Dyche with a dilemma ahead of Arsenal clash

Young James Tarkowski has been impressive of late and is knocking on the door of a starting spot for Burnley.

Sean Dyche does not like changing his defence unless he is forced into a switch, but James Tarkowski is doing everything he can to get into the Burnley starting backline.

Tarkowski was virtually faultless in two FA Cup games against Sunderland, in which the team picked up a pair of clean sheets, with young goalkeeper Nick Pope protected so well he hardly got his gloves dirty.

It is more than a year since Dyche made any unforced changes to his regular back four and goalkeeper, with a 3-0 Boxing...

Don't dismiss Arsenal from title race just yet with crunch clashes looming

Paul Mariner and Ross Dyer make their predictions for which teams will grab the top four spots in the Premier League.
A stoppage time winner from Laurent Koscielny sealed a dramatic 1-0 win over Burnley in their last meeting.
Arsene Wenger has confirmed Per Mertesacker has signed a one-year contract extension with Arsenal.
Stewart Robson joins the FC boys to discuss Alexis Sanchez's mood swings at Arsenal and why he'll be leaving the Gunners.

The idea that, for some, Arsenal are not in the title race is a strange one when you look at the league table. The gap to Chelsea is obvious, and with a crunch game coming up against the leaders in February, there's a chance to close the difference.

In the meantime, though, pundits have written this season off as more of the same from Arsene Wenger's team, which is slightly unfair at this stage.

Firstly, nobody expected Chelsea to go on a 13-game win streak after losing 3-0 to the Gunners back in...

Man City and Spurs to draw, Chelsea to ease past Hull, Stoke upset United?

Steve Nicol and Alexis Nunes pick the winners of the best Premier League match ups this weekend.
The Exploding Heads preview the huge game between Man City and Tottenham, and the Dembele-go-around.

Another weekend of top Premier League action is upon us, and it's a big one for Pep Guardiola as his Manchester City side take on Tottenham. City have struggled in recent months, while Tottenham are on the rise, but who will come out on top at the Etihad?

Meanwhile, Chelsea have Diego Costa back in the squad but don't seem to need him that much as they take on lowly Hull City seven points clear at the top of the table.

Liverpool host Swansea, while Manchester United travel to Stoke and Arsenal will...

Juventus planning audacious Alexis Sanchez-Miralem Pjanic swap

Gab Marcotti argues that while it might look good on paper, an Alexis Sanchez and Miralem Pjanic swap is wishful thinking.

The winter transfer window is now in full swing! As usual, Transfer Talk has its finger on the pulse when it comes to which rumours are picking up steam. Check out all the latest deals here.

TOP STORY: Juventus dream of Sanchez-Pjanic swap

One of this window's more outlandish rumours has surfaced in Italy.

Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez is reportedly the subject of an audacious swap proposal from Juventus, with Tuttosport saying Miralem Pjanic will be offered as the player to go in the opposite...

Sanchez's expressions about passion and competitiveness not discontent

Janusz Michallik believes Alexis Sanchez's competitiveness combined with contract uncertainties play into his frustrations.
Stewart Robson joins the FC boys to discuss Alexis Sanchez's mood swings at Arsenal and why he'll be leaving the Gunners.
Alexis Sanchez looked visibily upset after being subbed out ten minutes from time against Swansea.

There is a curious tendency in sport to see an outward show of emotion as some kind of transgression which is not to be tolerated; any expression of character an unwelcome diversion from the clean, clear lines along which our experience of the game should run.

Alexis Sanchez's "sulk" against Swansea City was one such moment, but there are many. You can see it in the attempt to make a unique individual like Lewis Hamilton conform to convention or the rush to vilify Nick Kyrgios when he shows his...
