New, comments

We have a slightly limited field to choose from this weekend with only 16 teams in action. Let's take a look at who else will be joining Sunderland, West Brom and the Manchester clubs on the sidelines this week.

Don't look so distraught Mr. Cattermole, nobody was going to pick you this week anyway...

Hopefully this has shed some light on some of the players to avoid as you finalize your Week 28 team. I'm still debating my last few changes, but at the moment my saved team is as follows:

Howard, Ivanovic, Koscielny, Vertonghen, Agger, Sterling, Oscar, Ince, Giroud, Adebayor, Suarez (c)

Bench: Holtby, Bertrand, Nocerino, Guzan

I'm still trying to find a way to get Eriksen and Hazard in there somehow, so we'll see what shakes out come deadline. How is your team shaping up? Good luck this week!
