Player Picks


Forwards

Luis Suarez (12.2), Sergio Aguero (12.1) and Wayne Rooney (11.1) - The gifts that keep on giving. A booking at Cardiff took Rooney to four yellow cards, however, so a booking in any of the next 8 league games will see him serve a one-match ban.

Olivier Giroud, Arsenal striker
"Victoire est mienne!"

Olivier Giroud (9.1) - Delivered the goods against a highly-rated Southampton team after blanking against Liverpool and Man United. Could start a scoring run as he looks at a trip to Cardiff and a home game against Hull

Loic Remy (8.1) - Is in sublime form having netted 8 times in the last 8 gameweeks, and should keep delivering.

Midfielders

Philippe Coutinho (8.5) - Comes cheaper than Gerrard, and with good underlying stats and a goal in the Merseyside derby, looks set to finally start delivering consistently.

Eden Hazard (9.4) - Registered two assists against West Ham to keep his run going, and should keep delivering the goods till well into December along with Oscar.

Samir Nasri, Manchester City midfielder

Samir Nasri (8.1) - City have performed phenomenally of late. Backed by a good performance last night and the continued absence of Silva, the Frenchman could prove his worth in the weeks to come.

Ravel Morrison (4.9) - He and his team have had better gameweeks than the last, but the upcoming schedule looks good for the lad. He, like Rooney, is on 4 yellows though.

Robbie Brady (5.2) - Hull's firecracker winger has finally recovered from his hernia troubles.

Defenders

James Collins (4.3) - Playing without a striker has not gone well for the Hammers, but hosting Fulham and Sunderland and travelling to Palace over the next four games promises good defensive returns. Collins is the most budget-friendly pick.

Glen Johnson, Liverpool defender

Glen Johnson (5.7) - A series of three great fixtures should see the Liverpool right back gather some serious points.

Danny Gabbidon (4.0) - Crystal Palace have registered back-to-back clean sheets, and now have Tony Pulis in charge. They host Cardiff and toothless West Ham and travel to Norwich in the next three weeks. Gabbidon would be a more than handy fifth defender to have around.

Martin Olsson (4.2) - Palace don't possess the most potent attack, particularly away from home. There's also the added chance that Olsson could take up a berth in left midfield in light of Pilkington's hamstring injury.

Ron Vlaar (4.4) - Sunderland have the worst attacking road away from home this season. Villa have kept two clean sheets in their last three games and look likely to register another one this gameweek.

Goalkeepers

Simon Mignolet (5,7) - The schedule makes him a must-have.

Jussi Jaaskelainen, West Ham goalkeeper
Finnish the job

Jussi Jaaskelainen (5.5) - Competes with Mignolet for schedule strength and a trip to Anfield aside, should deliver over the next four weeks.

Midfield and defence still far from the best, but it'll more than do
