Last few friendlies to report before we must stop procrastinating and pick our sides!
Man City 3 Chelsea 2
Chelsea Starting 11: Cech, Ivanovic, Luiz, Terry, Cole; Mikel, Lampard; Ramires, Mata (Sturridge 74), Hazard (Bertrand 70), Torres
Man City Starting 11: Pantilimon, Savic (Clichy 45) Kompany, Zabaleta; Milner, Y Toure, De Jong, Kolarov; Nasri (Silva 76); Tevez (Dzeko 88), Aguero
As reported by Matty a good win to city here, Tevez looking a good option on some free kicks and maybe pens. If the formation continues Yaya and Kolarov also look the goods.
Cologne 0 Arsenal 4
Arsenal First Half: Mannone; Yennaris, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Gibbs; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Coquelin, Cazorla; Walcott, Giroud, Podolksi
Arsenal Second Half: Szczesny; Jenkinson, Koscielny, Djourou, Santos; Diaby, Song, Gnabry; Gervinho, Chamakh, Podolski (Van Persie 69)
Arsenal on fire here Podolski the only one to play both halves, scoring twice. Cazorla was on set pieces.
Celta Vigo 1 Wigan 0
Wigan Starting XI: Al Habsi; Lopez, Ramis (Mustoe), Figueroa; Boyce, Watson, Fyvie (Gomez), Jones (McArthur); Di Santo (McManaman), Boselli, Crusat (Sammon)
An understrength side here so not much to glean.
Liverpool 3 Leverkusen 1
Liverpool Starting XI: Reina; Kelly, Carragher, Coates, Enrique; Lucas (Spearing 46), Shelvey (Henderson 46), Gerrard (Adam 46); Downing (Robinson 46), Suarez (Carroll 46), Sterling
Goals here to Carroll, Lucas and Sterling but there was high rotation.
So that’s about it for the pre-season friendlies my friends! I hope you found these helpful over the past months and your FPL side benefits, good luck!
