Week 36 Outs, Doubts, Ins and Wins

Hello everyone! I'm back from London and (mostly) over the jet-lag, so I'm eager to get back involved at NMA. I hope the latest injury and team news will help you all as you finalize your teams ahead of the Week 36 deadline. Let's get to it!

Liverpool has a new hero, but can he keep Sunderland in the league?

First things first, thank you to Mo, Simon and Zach for covering for me and allowing me to have one of the best vacations of my life. You guys are awesome.

Secondly, as much as it will get me into trouble with my girlfriend if she reads this, I have to say I couldn't have asked for a better result in the game we attended while we were on the other side of the Atlantic. Seeing an on-loan Liverpool player in Fabio Borini contribute with the match-winning goal against title rivals Chelsea (at Stamford Bridge, no less) is a memory I'll keep with me for years to come, especially if Liverpool can claim their first Premier League title this season.

Anyway, I could go on forever about my trip, but there's more important things to discuss, like team news! Here's the latest from around the league:

My current team is likely to change a bit before the deadline, but here's how it looks for the time being:

Hart, P. Jones, Kompany, Kolarov, Sterling, Ramsey, Holtby, Eriksen, Aguero, Suarez, Rooney

I'm thinking of dropping Hart and Kolarov to get some Arsenal coverage in my defense, but haven't decided if I want to go with Szczesny+Bardsley or De Gea+Koscielny. I'm also still up in the air with my captain decision. I'm torn between Ramsey and Rooney.

How is your team coming together? Any differential picks in your side? And finally, as is the case any time an option other than Suarez could be considered for the armband, I leave you with a poll:
