Double gameweek. The Dirtsheet. Need I say more?


The Twenty-one – (3-4-3) – DOUBLE GAMEWEEK EDITION 😀

David DeGea (MUN) – It’s hard to look past the United stopper although Fabianski is certainly a good option too. United will look to wrap up the title and I expect at least 1 clean sheet vs Stoke and West Ham.

Leighton Baines (EVE) – A home tie vs a hapless QPR is enough reason to justify Baines’ lofty price tag and his attacking threat will certainly test the Arsenal backline. With Fellaini returning to the side, Baines will have a superb target for his set piece deliveries.

Patrice Evra (MUN) – It was a close call between Rafael and Evra this week, but I feel Evra is more likely to start both games and has posed more attacking threat than the young Brazilian this season.

Bacary Sagna (ARS) – Having regained his starting position after a layoff due to injury, Sagna provides a cheap and secure route into Arsenal’s double fixture. With doubts over whether Monreal or Gibbs will start in the other fullback position, Sagna provides much-needed security.

Marouane Fellaini (EVE) – Fellaini has an incredible knack of scoring highly following a return to the first team and he must fancy his chances of scoring vs QPR at the weekend. I also fancy Fellaini to do well against the Arsenal centrebacks.

Theo Walcott (ARS) – Wenger has confirmed that Walcott “is back” and we have to think that he will start both games for the double gameweek. He should start in an attacking role vs Norwich which is reason enough to play him.

Steven Pienaar (EVE) – Like Fellaini, Pienaar will face QPR after a 2-week rest and should be raring to make an immediate impact.

Santi Cazorla (ARS) – The premium choice in the Arsenal ranks for the double gameweek, Cazorla has two home fixtures against Norwich and Everton. Norwich can capitualte to strong teams and Cazorla will be at the heart of Arsenal’s attack.

Dimitar Berbatov (FUL) – A double against Aston Villa and a Chelsea side with their minds firmly on two cup competitions sees the mercurial Bulgarian earn him a place in The Eleven with his usual aplomb. He is on superb form and I expect a double digit haul for the gameweek.

Robin Van Persie (MUN) – It might be a little controversial to choose RVP over Rooney but the title needs to be wrapped up and Rooney’s fitness is an issue. I back Van Persie to start both games and to end his drought.

Luis Suarez (LIV) – No double fixture for Suarez, but it’s hard not to play him away to Reading. A rare blank last week at home to West Ham will only drive him to get amongst the goals.

The Captain

Santi  Cazorla (ARS) – He’s the jewel in Arsenal crown for this DGW with 2 favourable fixtures. He should play 180 minutes and I would be stunned if he didn’t score into double figures.

The Clean Sheets

I think Manchester United are a good bet for a double clean sheet vs a goal shy Stoke and West Ham. Liverpool, Arsenal, Everton, Manchester City, Southampton and Chelsea should all keep 1 clean sheet.

The UNusual Suspects

DF: Sascha Riether (FUL) 
MD: Damien Duff (FUL) 
FW: Sergio Aguero (MCI) 
Differential Captain: Marouane Fellaini (EVE)

    Who the fuck can afford that shit?

    • Hi Tony,
      Firstly, the idea of the dirtsheet is not to buy the entire eleven. The idea is to list who I feel will do well in each of the positions.

      Secondly, I can afford that team and my team value is about 2m off many players.
