I may be beating the Barn Door metaphor to death (a dead horse?) with the headline, but I'm in the dentist's waiting room so forgive me. Anyway, here's the team I came up with over the course of the last few days (4-3-3).

Mignolet

Djourou Santos Evans Kilgallon

Sessegnon Sigurdsson McLean

van Persie Tevez Weimann

The hardest decision to make was whether or not to sell Papiss Cisse at 13. In the end I decided to gamble with the cheap forwards, especially Weimann who will have three matches to Cisse's one over the next two weeks. Neal is likely holding Cisse so I'm gambling. Cisse is likely to out-point Weimann even with fewer matches, but I'm the chaser so I have to take the risks.

UPDATE: I am newly considering Graham Dorrans for the weekend, as explained in this post.
