|"You'r our man now...for now"|
Anyway onto this weeks matches.
Things are quite defined this week as the Manchester clubs will look to dominate inferior opposition, Totenham and Newcastle will both try and get back to winning ways with highly potent winnable home matches and rest can be swept out of the equation to some extent for this week.
The Starting XI:
1. Krul: He's is so well priced for his value that it gets hard to pick all else that are above him. Playing behind a great combination of Colo and Taylor with Tiote expected back I see no reason why he cant give a great return back. Aston Villa are not really an attacking threat and should be a comfortable win for the maggpies.
Options: Hart playing home on the back of NO clean sheets, no clean sheets for City...well that needs to change, and probably will.
2. Vertonghen: He's another great value play and showed enough that you realize that he could be a good fantasy producer in the future. For the present he's well worth.
3. Santon: Seems to have settled in well since last season and a primary part of the Newcastle back four. Although his forward insurgence does leave you wanting more, it might be just around the corner that he starts producing consistently on the other end.
4. Zabaleta: Of the ample premium defenders he seems to be one that could easily be overlooked but has alot more potential than others. With Richards out for a while he has the RB spot to himself and should be a menace.
Options: Riether is playing away to WestHam and after facing United at Old Trafford this should be a breeze for him and boost his fantasy credentials. Walker is a good play this week as he along with the Totenham defence are due a good return and Norwich home sounds a wonderful opportunity.
5. Cazorla: Lived upto my call of a 10+ performance with just being the catalyst to almost all arsenal attacks, although all were unfruitful. You can expect a similar performance from him inspite of the opposition he faces as he loves to be on the ball.
6. Michu: The solitary goal was all the points scored by Michu, which isn't bad for his price, though at the current price its hard to even consider anyone else instead, hoping his phantom fantasy production also goes up.
7. Bale: He looks to be playing primarily on the left for the spurs but does tend to drift in quite a lot for the odd pop at goal. His price is up and nothing less than a 15+ production can justify it, but he has all the credentials to provide it too.
8. Kagawa: He did what was expected of him and could have even scored a brace had it not been couple of inches inside the left post. Moves a lot behind the front lone striker and another good fantasy outing is on the cards.
Options: Ben Arfa's a magician with his feet and his feints are quite deceiving, creates space in tightest of situations and has a deadly left foot, all should help in giving Aston Villa a hard time and fantasy managers a decent total. Fellaini is surprisingly still under 10 and given 2 great performances in his new position playing behind the strike.....opportunity doesn't knock twice.
9. Tevez: He is quite clearly the best option to go with out there looking at price, form and matchup. No questions asked, has to be in your lineups.
10. Adebayor: Once he entered the foray last week he was clearly the better option to go with for Spurs. Controlled the ball well, long enough to have the midfield catchup and play with him and definitely should more consistent than Defoe.
11. Petric: He seems to be in for some good run of matches and Fulham have a decent team around him. I'm not sure how much creativity a Dembele less Fulham would miss but he should be still amongst the goals.
So, Please do the most to enjoy this fantasy weekend to the maximum as it is the last one before the dreaded international disruptions. Things would start rolling again on 15 september.
Side note: Fifa 13 demo...11 september!...if anyones interested.
