With the news that Yohan Cabaye is potentially on his way to Paris Saint-Germain, I'm back to tinkering after I had settled on a team I liked, but at the moment, here's where things stand:

Speroni, Baines, Koscielny, Terry, Eriksen, Oscar, Willian, Ki, Bony, Aguero, Suarez

I'm still considering Hazard instead of Aguero, keeping Cazorla rather than Oscar, and starting Gerhard Tremmel instead of Julian Speroni, but the rest of my team is likely to stay as is.

How is your team shaping up? What last-minute changes are you considering?
