New, comments

LIverpool have Suarez but Arsenal have a GIANT, be afraid!

Now then, the early question of the morning is which Manchester United forward gets a spot in your Yahoo Fantasy Football side, Robin Van Persie, Wayne Rooney or Juan Mata? Perhaps all the Manchester United front line will be in the points in an old school 5 nil win. Perhaps Utd will flop worse than any game this season. What are your thoughts, who should be within our front line this week.

Had Chelsea v Newcastle been the early game I would have loaded up on the entire Chelsea side plus one Man Utd forward and Luis Suarez. That's how much a home banker I feel this game is. Newcastle have no Frabricio Coloccini, Loïc Rémy, Cheick Tioté and of course Yohan Cabaye. Bar Tim Krul that is the spine of their squad. The problem of course is who will Jose Mourinho pick and consider an away trip to West Bromwich Albion midweek it is so hard to risk too much.

We will get the Liverpool v Arsenal team news but as we are not expecting surprises you may have already committed to players from the game.

A few stats

Liverpool have only beat Arsenal once in the last 13. Meetings between these sides have produced more hat tricks than any other fixture SUAREZ alert RVP owners.

Aston Villa have lost 25 of their last 5 home games, wow!

Newcastle have failed to score in 5 of the last 6 games. Chelsea have never lost in the Premier League at home under Jose Mourinho.

Edin Džeko has scored 3 in his last 4 away games.

Stoke are on a 331 minute streak away from home without scoring.
