I'm away from midday today until Saturday as I'm taking a few days off for my birthday (29 tomorrow!) to spend time with Sarah, family & friends, so I didn't actually think I'd have time to write anything this week. However, I ended up with an hour spare this morning to run through the fixtures and players to produce a very quick post listing my recommendations for Week 10.
Apologies for the lack of analysis - Jeremy & Neal will be posting their views in much more detail within the next 48 hours and there will be an Injuries & Suspensions update post on Friday.
My predictions for the fixtures ...
Stand-Out Comfortable Wins
MAN CITY v Wolves
TOTTENHAM v Queens Park Rangers
CHELSEA v Arsenal
LIVERPOOL @ West Brom
SWANSEA v Bolton
NORWICH v Blackburn
Everton v Manchester United
Stoke City v Newcastle
Sunderland v Aston Villa
Wigan Athletic v Fulham
And the players I feel could do very well this week ...
Van Der Vaart
Please be aware that there are still Carling Cup matches to take place tonight so any players rested / injured / sent off could impact the lists above.
My current team is ...
De Gea, Boyata, Brown, Bassong, Moses, Gerrard, Silva, Van Der Vaart, Suarez, Adebayor, Aguero
... and I think that could be very close to my final team.
Have a good week, I'll be back on Saturday morning with the Week 10 Pre-Deadline Countdown Live chat.
