M Albrighton Metatarsal Fracture 30th Sep 12
S Petrov Acute Leukaemia no return date

Lineup 4-4-1-1

Guzan – Lowton Clark Vlaar Lichaj –  Bannan El Ahmadi Holman Ireland -Benteke Bent

Impossible to predict but here goes anyway.  Weiman Out Benteke in   im predicting only 1 change.  i think lambert would have a nervous breakdown if he only made 1 change.   Vlaar and Bent are the only players even remotely safe.

best performers: Bent

value:  Ireland £5.3m

Cheapie:  El Ahmadi midfield £4.5m

Defence:  Wouldn’t touch it but if you have to Clark for attacking returns

7th best next 6 fixtures.

CHELSEA (Stoke H)

Last week

  • 01 Cech
  • 02 Ivanovic
  • 03 Cole
  • 04 David Luiz
  • 26 Terry
  • 34 Bertrand Booked (Moses – 58′ )
  • 07 Ramires Booked
  • 08 Lampard
  • 12 Mikel

OUT

E Oscar Ankle/Foot Injury 22nd Sep 12 Late Fit Test
D Sturridge Hamstring Injury 29th Sep 12

Lineup 4-2-3-1

Cech – Ivanovich Terry Luiz Cole – Mikel  Lampard – Hazard Bertrand Ramires –  Torres

I’m predicting Mata will play instead of Bertrand for this home game.  Cant see Oscar playing against Stoke.  Cahill may rotate for Luiz.

19th next best 6 fixtures

best performers Ivanovic, Hazard

value:  No one stands out maybe Ramires at £6.5m

Best value route in to defence:  Ivanovic £6.9m

cheapie:  Mikel at £4.5m

EVERTON (Swansea A)

last week

  • 24 Howard
  • 02 Hibbert
  • 03 Baines
  • 06 Jagielka
  • 15 Distin
  • 18 Neville Booked
  • 21 Osman
  • 22 Pienaar Booked
  • 25 Fellaini Booked
  • 07 Jelavic (Anichebe – 44′ )

Substitutes

  • 01 Mucha
  • 05 Heitinga

  • 28 Anichebe

OUT

T Hibbert Knock 22nd Sep 12 Late Fit Test
N Jelavic Knee Injury 29th Sep 12
D Gibson Thigh Muscle Strain 21st Oct 12

Lneup  4-4-1-1

Howard – Hibbert Baines Jagielka Distin –  Naismith Neville Osman Pienaar- Fellaini Mirallas

I’m banking on  Hibbert passing a late test otherwise we’ll probably see Neville at RB and Heitinga come in to midfield.  I just cant see Fellaini moving away from the most advanced mid position behind the striker.  I think Mirallas will start up front after an impressive performance and Naismith will go to RM with Anichebe the unlucky one left on the bench

best performers:  Fellaini Pienaar  and Baines

Best route in to defence. Hibbert is the cheapest route. Baines is the Rolls Royce

4thth best next 6 fixtures.

FULHAM (Wigan A)

M Diarra ACL Knee Injury Mar 13
K Richardson Hip/Thigh Injury no return date
B Ruiz Hamstring Injury 22nd Sep 12
P Senderos Ankle/Foot Injury 7th Oct 12

Lineup 4-4-1-1

Schwarzer – Reither Hangeland Hughes Riise – Duff  Sidwell Baird  Kacaniklic – Rodallega Berbatov

Richardson out so cheapie favourite  Kacaniklic will start.  Berba and Rodellaga are virtually guaranteed to start.  I’ve pu fantasy premier league defender Baird to come in to midfield for in for Diarra.

best performers:  Berba, Duff

value: Hughes £4.5m  Kacaniklic £4.7m  Baird £4.4m

1st  next best 6 fixtures

Best route in to defence:  Hughes is the cheapest route in to the defence but Hangeland represents great value if you’ve got the spare cash

cheapie:  Kacaniklic £4.7m

LIVERPOOL (Man Utd H)

Last week

  • 25 Reina
  • 02 Johnson
  • 05 Agger
  • 34 Kelly

OUT

L Leiva Hip/Thigh Injury Nov 12
J Cole Hamstring Injury 23rd Sep 12

Lineup 4-3-3

Reina – Kelly Johnson Skrtel Agger – Allen Gerrard Shelvey – Suarez Borini Sterling

Im going for the same team as last week.  I cant see Rodgers starting Sahin in what will be such a full blooded match and Enrique seems persona non grata.

best performers to date:  Suarez,  Johnson

value: Sterling  £4.6m

Cheapie: Sterling £4.5m

best route in to the defence:  Skrtel £6.0m or Kelly at £5.4m if you’re willing to take some game time risk

13th best next 6 fixtures

MAN CITY (Arsenal H)

Last week

  • 01 Hart
  • 03 Maicon
  • 04 Kompany
  • 06 Lescott
  • 22 Clichy
  • 08 Nasri
  • 11 Sinclair (Silva – 74′ )

  • 18 Barry
  • 21 Silva
  • 10 Dzeko

OUT

S Nasri Hamstring Injury 23rd Sep 12 Late Fit Test
M Richards Ankle/Foot Injury no return date

Lineup 4-4-2

Hart –  Zabaleta Kompany Lescott Clichy – YYT  Silva  Garcia Milner-  Tevez Dzeko

After a selection in Madrid that made Paul Lambert look sane who knows what team or what formation will start.  I’ve followed the most likely formation being 4-4-2 and I just cant see Nasri starting a game so shortly after an injury. Ive gone for Zabaleta after Maicon had such a nightmare and Lescott over Nastasic although who knows perhaps someone f’rom the City under 12 team will be rolled out.  Aguero is fit but I think he’ll start from the bench with Dzeko being in such good form

Best performers:  YYT  Tevez

value: Zabaleta £6.0m

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

cheapies:  none

6thth next best 6 fixtures

MAN UTD ( Liverpool A)

last week

  • 13 Lindegaard
  • 02 Rafael
  • 05 Ferdinand
  • 15 Vidic (Evans – 77′ )

OUT

P Jones Cartilage Knee Injury 20th Oct 12
A Young Knee Injury 20th Oct 12
W Rooney Deep Leg Laceration 29th Sep 12
C Smalling Metatarsal Fracture 7th Oct 12

Lineup 4-2-3-1

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

Take your pick on the GK front.  I’m going for de Gea to hold his place after a fine game in the champs league.  Young and Rooneys injury make the rest of the selection predictable apart from whether Scholes or Cleverley will start.

best performers   Rafael, Kagawa, RVP

cheapies:  none

value:  Rafael

Best route in to defence:  Value in defence only Rafael at £5.6m.    Vidic is Rolls Royce option

20th next best 6 fixtures

NEWCASTLE UTD (Norwich H)

Last week

F Coloccini Hamstring Injury 29th Sep 12
D Simpson Hamstring Injury 29th Sep 12
R Taylor ACL Knee Injury Mar 13
C Tiote Calf/Shin Injury 23rd Sep 12 Late Fit Test

Lineup  4-4-2

Harper –  Perch Santon S Taylor Williamson – Gutierrez  Anita Cabaye Ben Arfa – P Cisse Ba

Ive gone for the same team as last week except with cheapie Marveaux being left out for Demba Ba.  Anita and Perch could be interchangeable at RB and CM.  I’m assuming Tiote doesn’t line up

Best performers.   Ba Ben Arfa

Value:  Ba £7.7m

Cheapies:  None

Best Route in to defence:  No one stands out as value in the longer term.  I would probably go with Steven Taylor or Santon for attacking value

value:

cheapies:  Barnett £4.0m Def, seems to be holding his place

cheapies;  Nelsen £3.9m

J Kebe Hamstring Injury 26th Sep 12

Line up 4-5-1

McCarthy- Gunter Gorkss Pearce Harte – Leigerwoot Guthrie McAnuff McLeary Karacan – Pogrebnyak

Despite the abject display i expect the team to line up as they did last week.

cheapies: Gunter Gorkss at £4.0m and £3.9m  Guthrie at £4.4m is the best in midfield  bet over Karacan at £4.3m whos place is not certain

best performers:  Guthrie

value:  Guthrie at £4.4m Harte at £4.4m for attacking prospects  Pogrebnyak at £4.9m compared to other cheap  strikers

  • 24 Mayuka

OUT

J Hooiveld Calf/Shin Injury 22nd Sep 12 Late Fit Test
S De Ridder Knock 22nd Sep 12

Lineup 4-3-3

Davis – Clyne Fonte Hooiveld Fox  – Schniederlin Davis Lallana –  Puncheon Ramirez Lambert 

I’m assuming Hooiveld  makes his fitness teast otherwise its Yoshida to start.  You have to think Adkins attacking instincts will see Ramirez on the bench.  Difficult to predict who will be left out but I’m going for cheapie WP to  be the unlucky one.

Cheapies:  Defence Clyne and Fonte at £4.0m midfield Schniederlin and WP at £4.5m.  Puncheon at £4.4m looks like holding the spot

best performers: Lambert Lallana

Best value:  Lambert looks good value at £6.0m especially the fixtures have now improved

best route in to defence:  as above

fixtures: 3rd best next 6

A Wilkinson  banned 3 games from GW5
J Ness Groin Strain 22nd Sep 12

Lineup 4-4-2

Begovic – Cameron Wilson Huth Shawcross – Kightly NZonzi Adam Whelan – Walters Crouch

Either Shotton or Cameron will go to RB I suspect.  After that Im going for the same team as last week

Lineup 4-4-1-1

Mignolet –  Oshea Bramble  Gardner Rose – Larsson Cattermole Colback McLean – Sessegnon Fletcher

cheapies:  Cattermole £4.5m.  Dont select as YC magnet

Best performers : Fletcher

value:  none

best route in to defence: none.  make sure bramble plays at £4.4m and ten short term for a month
