So the biggest news is of course with the player that was in every team and captain in most Wayne Rooney.  News that he has both a tight groin and a bug seems to have ruled him out of Saturday's game.  Although not great news for Utd it is good news for our game forcing us to think a little more and hopefully providing a few differing sides to the often too similar picks we end up with in a double week.  Dare you risk RVP?

The news that David Silva is back will tempt some and must improve the goal creation chances for the City attack.

So many of the star players Rooney, Rvp, Mata, KUn, Dzeko, Silva ETC may only get 120mins or less so should your thought should look towards the on paper 180 minute boys?  All in all perhaps one of the most interesting weeks of the season to play fantasy football.

It really will be a crucial week in your battles with leagues and if you are in the Rotoworld Cup final.  Who are you with?
