4th Round - Week 16 - Top 600 teams based on weekly scores from the remaining 900 teams go through to 5th round. 300 teams go out.
"Ashley has been ill, which is not good on top of the ankle injury," said the Swansea manager.
"He wants to be fit — he wants to play and he wants to be 100 per cent.
"But for the last couple of weeks or more he hasn’t trained at 100 per cent because of his ankle, and he is the big question mark for us ahead of Reading."
Swansea will assess Williams in the lead-up to the weekend, with club skipper Garry Monk in line for a possible recall should he not make it.
From the League Office
"We have had some user feedback regarding Chelsea's Hazard scoring zero points since the start of the season. Please note, there are 2 Hazards that play for Chelsea: E. Hazard and T. Hazard.
T. Hazard is currently on loan outside of the Premier League and will be removed from the fantasy game next week. The reason for this is to give users the chance to replace him in their starting 11."
I'd hate to be one of those managers. Think of the number of points they could have missed out on (Hazard points + entry-priced midfielder a la Michu/Cazorla). Ouch.
"I think if you look at the squad - Gaston [Ramirez] came on and looked the part and he's only going to get better once he starts to learn English.
It didn't take long for the Chelsea locker room to discover that there's some fun to be had translating Spanish names into English; shortly after his arrival from Valencia, Juan Mata was dubbed Johnny Kill by his team-mates.
Pretty amazing. Can he reach 100 in a year?:
"59 goals in 2012 was the tally Lionel Messi reached on Friday, meaning that he has already equalled his 2011 haul – in 25 fewer matches. The Barcelona star needed 70 appearances for club and country to reach this total last year, whereas it has taken him just 45 this time, making for an average of 1.3 goals per game. Messi now needs just one more goal to emulate his best-ever performance in a calendar year: 60 goals over the course of 2010. The 25-year-old would have dearly loved to reach that landmark in Peru last night, but he failed to score for the first time in seven appearances for Argentina. He had gone into the match having scored ten times in his previous six outings, becoming the first Albiceleste star since Hernan Crespo 11 years before to find the net in six successive internationals."
Manchester United's Shinji Kagawa pulled out of Japan's home World Cup qualifier against Iraq an hour before kick-off.
The Japan Football Association revealed that the playmaker felt a twinge in his lower back during training for the Group B qualifier in Saitama.
"[Esteban Granero] has got great energy and is technically very gifted, as you would expect from a Real Madrid player. He is very comfortable on the ball and is an all-round excellent midfielder, which we will benefit from."
