DEFENCE: Kieran Gibbs – £5.3m (Away v Sunderland)

Fresh from the confidence boost of getting a nice goal in the Champions League, Arsenal defender Kieran Gibbs should be backed to have a good game as the Gunners go to a Sunderland side still reeling from their hammering at Southampton.

Of course they’ll be desperate to recover following such a high-profile defeat but the Gunners should be good enough to get the better of them, and given that Gibbs is in my team it’s a surprise to me that his ownership rate is so low.


MIDFIELD: Gylfi Sigurdsson – £6.8m (Home v Leicester)

These are the sort of games in which the Icelander has been cleaning up all season, and although he hasn’t managed a goal since the opening day of the season you get the feeling that he’ll get a few chances against Leicester, a match in which Garry Monk will be desperate to win.

He could also add to six assists this season, too.


FORWARD: Romelu Lukaku – £9.0 (Away v Everton)

Burnley continue to struggle, and they won’t be looking forward to the visit of a player who got back in the groove with a goal against Aston Villa last week.

Romelu Lukaku hasn’t been at his best for the majority of this season but when he’s on his game there are few better strikers in the division, and he’ll be ready to trouble the Clarets at Turf Moor.


THE OUTSIDER (a player with less than 5% ownership): Wilfried Bony – £8.2m (Home  v Leicester)

As you might be able to tell, I quite fancy Swansea to beat Leicester on Saturday, and after a slow start to his season I think it’s about time Wilfried Bony got going and showed his importance to the Swans side.

The Ivorian scored a penalty against Stoke last time out and he’ll fancy his chances against the Foxes.


THE CAPTAIN: Sergio Aguero – £12.4m (Away v West Ham)

There’s no Diego Costa, but the smart ones amongst you would have picked Sergio Aguero as skipper for the Spurs clash last week and should follow suit for City’s trip to West Ham.

The Argentinean is, on his day, the best player in the Premier League and he can prove that again at Upton Park.

The #FY Top 5 for GW8, including Santiago Vergini and, hang on, Marouane Fellaini does play for Man Utd?!

Vergini’s Vision

What was it Martin Tyler said when another Argentinean, Sergio Aguero, scored another pretty famous Premier League goal?

“Just watch it, drink it in! You’ll never seen anything like this ever again!” Quite.


Tweet of the Week

This cannot possibly backfire.



Nope. Not going to backfire at all.

Three minutes later… By the way, seeing the words ‘Fellaini Blind’ next to each other on a scoresheet might explain a few things since he’s joined United.



Mad Mario

Balotelli isn’t even bothered here. It’s Lallana who I feel sorry for.


Oscar Worthy

Who needs Diego Costa? Well, all of us, clearly, but still. This was nice.

Gameweek 8


DEFENCE: Daryl Janmaat – £5.0m (Home v Leicester)

What’s this? A Newcastle defender? Newcastle?!

Correct, Newcastle. Summer signing Daryl Janmaat has looked okay since he arrived at St James’s Park from Dutch football, even managing a goal against Crystal Palace. As he faces a Leicester side who drew a blank at Crystal Palace last time out he’ll be looking to keep things tight from right-back whilst also getting forward, too. Could be worth a punt at a cheap price.

MIDFIELD: Raheem Sterling – £8.9m (Away v QPR)

Some things are just meant to be, and following the week he’s had (which included, let’s not forget, coming off the bench to win the free-kick from which England won the game in Estonia) then it seems likely that Raheem Sterling will have a huge say in proceedings back at his former club QPR on Sunday.

Liverpool’s well-rested teenager is likely to be teamed up with Daniel Sturridge again as his club and country teammate returns from injury, and that combination could help the Reds to a victory at a club who continue to struggle this season.


FORWARD: Saido Berahino – £5.6m (Home v Man Utd)

The prolific young Baggie Saido Berahino netted a penalty at Anfield before the international break, during which he impressed for the England under-21s.

The forward will fancy his chances against Manchester United’s dodgy defence on Monday night, when Louis van Gaal’s side will expect to win at The Hawthorns, but could do so whilst conceding goals at the other end to this lively youngster.



THE OUTSIDER: Gabriel Agbonlahor – £5.4m (Away v Everton)

The last time Aston Villa were on Merseyside they emerged from Anfield as 1-0 victors thanks to a winner from Gabriel Agbonlahor, and the Villa stalwart will be important again as they return to the area to take on an Everton side who have specialised in conceding goals this season.

Paul Lambert’s men sorely missed Agbonlahor during the 2-0 loss at home to Manchester City just before the internationals when he pulled out just before kick-off through illness, but now he’s back up and running he’ll be vital if the Villans are to take anything from Goodison Park. He could be worth a gamble.


THE CAPTAIN: Diego Costa – £11.1m (Away v Crystal Palace)

Yep, it’s him again.

As the evidence grows that Diego Costa’s ‘injury’ is just an elaborate wind-up from Jose Mourinho (as if he’d dream of doing such a thing!) then it really does make sense just to keep sticking with the Chelsea forward.

Costa finally managed his first Spain goal in seven appearances on Sunday, and now he’s got Palace in his sights.
