Despite Mirralas’ performance in the week I’ve kept with Fellaini behind Jelavic

LINEUP 4-4-1-1

Schwarzer – Reither Hangeland Hughes Riise – Duff  Sidwell Diarra  kacaniklic – Ruiz Petric

Only questions are whether Richardson starts instead of cheapie favourite  Kacaniklic and whether Berba starts.  I’ve assumed both wont tomorrow.

best performers:  Duff, Ruiz Petric

value: None stands out

3rdnext best 6 fixtures

Petric Ruiz and kacaniklic were the star perforers last time out

L Leiva Hip/Thigh Injury Nov 12
J Cole Hamstring Injury no return date

LINEUP4-3-3

Reina – Johnson Enrique Skrtel agger – Allen Gerrard Shelvey – Suarez Borini Sterling

Strange team last time out.  Ive gone for Enrique coming back in, Sterling holding his place after Assaidi and shelvey in for Lucas

best performers to date:  Suarez Gerrard Johnson

value: Sterling  but maybe short term

Cheapie: Sterling £4.5m

best route in to the defence:  Skrtel and Enrique at £6.0m and £5.9

G Barry Inguinal Hernia 15th Sep 12

LINEUP4 -4- 2

Hart – Zabaleta Kompany Lescott Clichy – YYT Rodwell Nasri  Silva-  Tevez Ballotelli

Ive gone for 4-4-2 with 3-5-2 being the defensive away formation.  I dont see Maicon starting straight away or Garcia.  i don’t see Sinclair starting full stop.

Best performers:  YYT Nasri Tevez

value: Zabaleta

best route in to defence:  Zabaleta subject to Maicon risk. Kompany is the Rolls Royce option

cheapies:  none

OUT

A Young Knee Injury 15th Sep 12
W Rooney Deep Leg Laceration 23rd Sep 12
R Ferdinand Hamstring Injury no return date

C Smalling Metatarsal Fracture 7th Oct 12

LINEUP 4-2-3-1

De Gea – Rafael Evra  Vidic Carrick –  Scholes Cleverley  – Nani Valencia Kagawa  –  RVP 

Tricky one to pick but Nani in for Young and with RVP no competition will start.  Ive gone for Scholes over Anderson.  Cant see Welbeck starting away.  Youngs injury will prevent the Valencia RB option which is good news for Rafael fantasy premier league managers

best performers stats wise was Rafael, Valencia, Kagawa, RVP

cheapies:  none

value: Cleverley Rafael

Best route in to defence:  value in defence only Rafael for those willing to gamble on selection.  Vidic is Rolls Royce option
