Let’s quickly look back at last week’s picks. Eric Dier was on his way to a handy clean sheet before bandwagon troll Riyad Mahrez stepped in and ruined everything. Aleksander Kolarov was sensational though, netting a crucial goal and clean sheet as well as maximum BP’s for a beautiful 15-pointer. Just for good measure, Gael Clichy didn’t even make the bench.
Firstly, let’s look back at last week’s picks. Scott Sinclair was worryingly ineffective against Manchester United and just to rub it in, Tim Sherwood went to Troll Level 1000 by subbing him off on exactly 59 minutes. It raises some concerns about his job security going forward but I’d hold firm for now with some decent fixtures coming up for Villa. Ashley Young was a surprise omission from the United line-up, especially as he lost his place to the forgotten boy-wonder Adnan Januzai. One diving bastard for another I suppose. Young was only supposed to be a short-term punt but now he has to be quickly discarded.

So without further ado, let’s jump into it… Continue reading
