Mata starts despite his summer exertions. Hart is injured. We'll have to follow-up on that one. No Lescott, no Balotelli. No new boy, Jack Rodwell. But it's probably too soon for him.

Anyone watching? Anyone already tweaking their line-ups? I'm thinking Aguero to Tevez to afford another Chelsea defender.

Let's chat.
