Dugout Discussion

Sunday Dugout Discussion

Yet again both Manchester clubs in are involved in Sunday Premier League action. With most fantasy managers cheering on their captain today, the Dugout Discussion opens to follow all the action from the three games on show.

We start at Old Trafford as United look to open up an eight point gap with a victory against Everton. The team news from the match-up is in, and the sides line-up as follows…

Man United XI: De Gea, Rafael Da Silva, Ferdinand, Evans, Evra, Valencia, Scholes, Carrick, Nani, Rooney, Welbeck.

Everton XI: Howard, Hibbert, Jagielka, Distin, Neville, Osman, Heitinga, Gibson, Pienaar, Fellaini, Jelavic.

Nani returns to United’s starting eleven for the first time in eight games, with Ashley Young taking his place on the substitutes bench. Facing his former employer, Darron Gibson starts for Everton.

Then it’s over to bottom of the league Wolves, where City are in town needing three points regardless of the earlier result. Kicking off at the same time, Liverpool and West Brom are also in action, with Roy Hodgson back at Anfield for the first time since departing as Liverpool manager.

The Dugout Discussion chatroom is open and can be accessed right here.

    repost

    ok, so my Rooney to Tevez punt was a huge fail. But luckily rival only took 8 points out of me, so still have a 40 point cushion.

    Would love Rooney back for the Derby, but short of a 12 point hit, not gonna happen, so I will wait until 37 and shift Cisse.

    So, my DGW team should look like

    Mingolet

    Caulker, Cahill, Santon

    Bale, Dempsey, Pienaar, Siggy

    RvP, Jelavic, Cisse (c)

    De Gea, McClean, Verm, Evans

    (-8)
