Statistically, Crouch is far more valuable a Fantasy player than you might expect – Stoke are at home to Sunderland, take advantage of that.
Yup, he plays for Wigan, but Roberto Martinez’s side – despite what the table says – are a decent footballing side, and Kone is right at the heart of everything they do. Interesting fact: he has as many points this season as Lukas Podolski
He may not quite be ready to play consistently, but it’s a smart move to bring him in now on the cheap – will probably get some game time on Saturday at home to QPR.
In the middle of a rich vein of form, take advantage of that. Give him a couple of weeks, and he’ll be what Eden Hazard was at the beginning of the season.
Out for a month, dump.
Suspended this weekend, and by the time he returns the Everton bubble may have burst.
Hamstring twang aside, Roberto Mancini’s defensive philosophy is a fluid concept at the moment – City’s defenders aren’t the source of points that they once where.
Does this need to be justified – either he plays and concedes goals, or he doesn’t play and doesn’t score any points.
Given the monstrous performance that Arsenal turned in on Wednesday, expect a couple of members of the first-team to be sacrificed – Gervinho was particularly poor in midweek, and he’s a prime candidate to ‘have a rest’.
