We’ve got three fixtures to enjoy on this Sunday of Premier League action. After league-leaders Manchester United narrowly took three points yesterday at Villa Park, it’s time for the other two title contenders to respond. The Dugout Discussion opens for the juicy encounter at the Etihad Stadium between hosts Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur. The team news is in, and is as follows…

Man City XI: Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany, Nastasic, Clichy, Yaya Toure, Barry, Kolarov, Silva, Tevez, Aguero.

Spurs XI: Friedel, Walker, Gallas, Caulker, Vertonghen, Sandro, Huddlestone, Lennon, Bale, Dempsey, Adebayor.

Roberto Mancini makes four changes from last weekends goalless draw against West Ham, which includes the return of David Silva after a month-long lay-off. As for the visitors, Jermain Defoe misses out despite a midweek hattrick in the Europa League, which means Emmanual Adebayor lines up against his former employers.

Following events in Manchester there will be another tasty battle, this time in the capital where Liverpool travel down to Chelsea. In and amongst, at 3p.m., Newcastle United welcome the visit West Ham United.

You can take in all the action in our Dugout Discussion chatroom, which is open and can be accessed right here.

  1. Breaking News: Chelsea have reported Howard Webb for the use of "inappropriate language". Apparently he called Fernando Torres a striker...

  2. Is Michu a real season keeper? I am little bit worried about him. He isn't producing lately. And I am talking about statistic point of view, not about FPL pts only

  3. Hazard to???

    Mata
    Nolan
    Silva
    Walcott

    1. tough call I'd go with Mata

      • 1 year, 9 months ago
  4. This got lost on the last page. What do you reckon I should do?
    A) Hazard to Nolan and Crouch to Suarez for a hit (I have Mata)
    B) Vorm to Ruddy and Crouch to Berbatov (other keeper is Begovic)
    C) Baines to O’Shea and Crouch to Suarez
    Thanks, any other suggestions appreciated too

  5. Tevez to Suarez definitely.......One last chance for Caz to avoid a 4pt hit. Also, not sure to change him to Silva, Walcott or Valencia

  6. 62 pre baps, pretty happy, should see me into top 2k. Bap for RVP? Gotta be close right between Benteke, Roopig and RVP for the 1bp

    • 1 year, 9 months ago
    1. not any chance for RVP, Rooney baps here SIR, lol

      • 1 year, 9 months ago
    2. The pig shd get negative BPs

      • 1 year, 9 months ago
  7. Breaking News: Chelsea have reported Howard Webb for the use of “inappropriate language”. Apparently he called Fernando Torres a striker…...

    • 1 year, 9 months ago
    1. he played well today

      • 1 year, 9 months ago
  8. Come on update it. I want to see that green finally. 100K climbing is what I am hoping for. Only if RVP didn't make that assist

  9. In the hospital with horribly jerked knee :-) Ivanovic has 2 points from last 4 games, Chelsea's CS record gone south and further. Hammers CS looks good. Not sure how long Luis will keep finding that net but got him back. Mirallas injury status not sure but could regret this the most. A from an for Pienaar seems to make sense.

    Out : Ivanovic, Pienaar, Mirallas. In, for 8 pt hit : Reid, Fellini, Suarez.

    Defence now looks skimpy on paper but they'll be playing on grass :-)

    1.5 m in the bank. Bale and Bad Santi on the way for Valencia and Silva.

    Surfer Rosa :

    Begovic
    Cuellar, Sagna, Reid
    Mata, Sterling, Fellaini, Bale, Cazorla
    Rooney, Suarez

    Foster, Long, Gorkss, Clark
