Out: Mikel Arteta, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Doubt: Kieran Gibbs (rotation), Mathieu Debuchy (match fitness)

In: Gabriel Paulisita, Nacho Monreal

Win: Alexis Sanchez

The Gunners injuries seems to have gone and the form continues.  They were unable to break Chelsea's league best defence and with Champions League almost done there is a danger they could start looking ahead to the cup final.  Likely that mindset is a week or two away whilst the club try and secure the comfort of no Champions league qualifier next season.

Sanchez is the obvious pick in this one.  Showing no signs of tired legs or mind I wonder if he may finish a fantastic season with a flourish.


Aston Villa

Out: Nathan Baker, Ciaran Clark, Gabbriel Agbonlahor

Doubt: Alan Hutton,

In: Jores Okore, Jack Grealish

Win: Christian Benteke

Time Sherwood has got him Villa playing a better tune than recent managers.  Now becoming a fun team to watch I'm not sure how to predict their future under him.  Bib Ben though has been the league's best forward in terms of goals over the last few weeks.




Doubt: Sam Vokes


Win: Kieran Trippier

Burnley are starting to look gone.  Perhaps the size of squad has caught up with them.  They need something from this game and Burnley's clear best fantasy option is Trippier.  Certain to be in the league next year he can rack up the points with or without a clean sheet.




Doubt: Diego Costa,

In: Ramires, Oscar, Loic Remy,

Win: Eden Hazard

The league is on the verge on being won and somewhere there will be a relaxed and more attack minded win.  Palace have gone from white hot to vey not, typical Alan Pardew team you could say.  As always Hazard is the top pick.


Crystal Palace

Out: Frazier Campbell, Marouane Chamakh, Barry Bannan

Doubt: Joel Ward

In: Pape Souare (maybe)

Win: Mikes Jedinak

The Jedi will likely rack up the phantoms in this one as the Eagles look to end a losing run.



Out: Darron Gibson, Bryan Oviedo

Doubt: James McCarthy, Stephen Pienaar, Leon Osman

In: Kevin Mirallas

Win: Romelu Lukaku

I trip the Troll King with caution.  Like most of you I miss the boat when he does well and pick him when he, well, trolls us.


Hull City

Out: Curtis Davies, Robert Snodgrass

Doubt: Gaston Ramirez,


Win: Robbie Brady

Brady was excellent in the double and he was the one we all missed.  Picking on form is never a bad idea.


Leicester City

Out: Chris Wood

Doubt: David Nugent, Jeffrey Schlupp, Robert Huth


Win: Jamie Vardy

Talking of in form, Vardy has been a big part of Leicester's run out of the bottom three.



Out: Daniel Sturridge, Lucas Leiva, Mamadou Sakho

Doubt: Mario Ballotelli, Alberto Moreno

In: Jordon Ibe, Steven Gerrard, Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert

Win: Philippe Coutinho

The young Brazilian has been the shining light in a side that has suddenly collapsed.


Manchester City

Out: Gael Clichy, Samir Nasri, Vincent Kompany, Stevan Jovetic

Doubt: Yaya Toure


Win: Sergio Aguero

Always pick Kun.


Manchester United

Out: Rafael da Silva, Luke Shaw

Doubt: Marcos Rojo, Michael Carrick

In: Phil Jones

Win: Ashely Young

Young has been a surprise at times and may have done enough to keep a squad place for next season.



Out: Papiss Cisse, Moussa Sissoko (both suspended), Cheikh Tiote, Massadio Haidara

Doubt: Paul Dummett


Win: Ryan Taylor

Taylor has been one of the few decent performers in the magpies run.


Queens Park Rangers

Out: Eduardo Vargas, Rio Ferdinand

Doubt: Adel Taarabt,


Win: Charlie Austin

Austin may be on a downer missing the penalty last week but he is the ranger's best option.



Out: Fraser Forster, Filip Djuricic, Morgan Schneiderlin, Dusan Tadic

Doubt: Shane Long (selection)

In: James Ward-Prowse, Maya Yoshida

Win: Saido Mane

Mane has let me down more than done the business this season.  He does though have the look of a player due a big game and boy are Sunderland welcoming on their own patch recently.


Stoke City

Out: Victor Moses, Bojan Krkic, Marc Muniesa

Doubt: Stephen Ireland, Charlie Adam


Win: Charlie Adam

He may need a face mask but his form is strong.  Having spent most of the season on the bench he now may be the first name in midfield on the Stoke team sheet.



Out: Ricky Alvarez, Steven Fletcher

Doubt: Liam Bridcutt (rotation)

In: Sebastian Larsson

Win: Jemain Defoe

They spent plenty of money for Defoe to shoot the Black Cats to safety.  He did the business against Newcastle, now he needs to do it again.


Swansea City

Out: Bafetimbi Gomis, Kyle Naughton

Doubt: Jonjo Shelvey (rotation)

In: Neil Taylor

Win: Siggy

Always Siggy.  Only concern is he may have used up his goals/assists last week.


Tottenham Hotspur

Out: Kyle Walker

Doubt: Ben Davies (rotation), Danny Rose

In: Hugo Lloris, Danny Rose

Win: Harry Kane

Kane has shown signs of being a big game player and he doesn't face a decent pair of centre backs in this one.


West Bromwich Albion

Out: Graham Dorrans, Andre Wisdom


In: Youssouf Mulumbu

Win: Saido Berahino

Scored at OT last season and may find the space to do so again.


West Ham United

Out: Andy Carroll, Guy Demel, Diafra Sakho, James Tomkins

Doubt: N/A

In: N/A

Win: Aaron Cresswell

At 1m a no brainer
