So a few hits and misses.. hope my predictions fare better this GW… The technique remains the same: i’ll recommend players across the various positions (G’keeper/Defender/Midfielder/Forward) from three price bands – Low/Medium/High.

Here are the top choices for this weekend:

  • Goalkeepers:
  1. Joe Hart (High) – After 2 erratic defensive performances, expect Mancini to crack the whip and the City to defense to sort their act – which will ensure Hart is rarely troubled in goal.
  2. Michel Vorm (Medium) – Expect the Dutchman to be in control once again. The rampant Swans host Sunderland at home. Another clean sheet seems almost obligatory.
  3. Vito Mannone (Low) – Wojciech Szczesny’s absence means the Italian will take his place once again. With Arsenal’s defense looking confident, Don Vito might just earn their third clean sheet in a row.
  • Defenders:
  1. Vincent Kompany (High) – City will have to start imposing their authority over their opponents. It has been missing this season, and expect their Captain to put in a match winning performance.
  2. Sylvain Distin (Medium) – The Toffees’ central defender is performing exceptionally well, defying age and marshaling the Blues with rock solid defending. Expect an encore!
  3. Danny Simpson (Low) – Newcastle would love nothing better than to bounce back from the defeat last week. They host Aston Villa, who are woefully short in the attacking department.
  • Midfielders:
  1. Gylfi Sigurdsson (High) – With Rafael Van der Vaat’s departure, the Icelandic midfielder’s attacking responsibilities are heightened. Expect him to deliver.
  2. Yao Gervinho (Medium) – “Le Forehead” has dazzled in Arsenal’s opening matches, but hasn’t delivered. Liverpool’s shaky defense represents his best chance to finally realize his true potential.
  3. Shaun Maloney (Low) – Maloney has been one of Wigan’s better performers this season. Expect him to up the ante, now that Victor Moses has left for blue-r pastures.
  • Forwards:
  1. Robin van Persie (High) – The Dutchman will enjoy being the lone striker to complement the Red Devils’ attack. Rooney’s month long absence will mean he becomes indispensable. For some people, when it rains….
  2. Nikica Jelavic (Medium) – The Croatian will threaten to run riot against the West Bromwich defenders. Excellent movement on – and off the ball – means that Nikica will be a constant threat can simply not be ignored!
  3. Danny Graham (Low) – The Englishman finally opened his goal scoring account last week. Against Sunderland at home, don’t be surprised if he adds to the tally.

Hope this exhaustive compilation helps! Here’s to a great Gameweek ahead…

And here’s Stewart Downing continues his “fine” run against the Gunners!

After his successful loan move to West Ham United, here’s hoping Andy Carroll features on this list soon….
