Crystal Palace Sign Mutch, Ameobi

1

Former Cardiff City star man Jordon Mutch has put an end to his 6-month nightmare at QPR, signing for Crystal Palace today.

The Eagles also announced the signing of 33-year-old Newcastle striker Shola Ameobi, who will link back up with former manager Alan Pardew.

What do you think of the new arrivals? Will either be a regular starter and, if so, who will they replace in the starting lineup?

Gabriel Paulista Signs For Arsenal

The North London club have completed the signing of Villareal center back Gabriel Paulista, with Joel Cambpell heading the other way on loan for the remainder of the season.

The 24-year-old will face competition for a starting role from the likes of Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker, and it remains to be seen where he will slot into the Arsenal back line.

Do you think Paulista will earn a starting spot? If so, who do you think will drop out?

Tony Pulis has secured his first signing since arriving at West Bromwich Albion, with former Wigan Athleticmidfielder McManaman joining the club on a three-and-a-half year contract.

McManaman was a bright prospect when Wigan were last in the Premier League, and the 23-year-old could be a valuable player both in real life and in fantasy.

Injury Update: Sergio Aguero ruled out until January

40

We all feared it would be a long injury layoff when Manchester City's star striker went down in the early stages of Saturday's match against Everton, and today we have confirmation that the Argentine suffered ligament damage to his knee:

#MCFC confirm Sergio Aguero could be back for the FA Cup tie at the beginning of January or the Everton game in the EPL the following week

Who will you be bringing into your team in Aguero's place for week 16? Will you buy one expensive player or spread the funds throughout your starting lineup?

International Watch: Fabregas ruled out of Spain Qualifier

5

Chelsea and Spainish International Cesc Fabregas has been ruled out of Spain´s Euro 2016 Qualifier with Belarus with a hamstring complaint. Jose Mourinho even stated he had ¨gambled¨ when playing him 90 minutes against Liverpool and the CL midweek match respectively. However, Fabregas is being tipped to be fit for Chelsea´s next league match against West Bromwich Albion on Nov 22nd. Given that Chelsea have one of the stronger match ups in Week 12, Fabregas´s starting status will need to be monitored. I suggest having a viable backup bench option in case the Spanish midfielder fails to regain fitness.
