Sunday Dugout Discussion

Filed under: Dugout Discussion - Posted by: Mark

Sunday delivers a double header of lip-smacking ties, as old rivals United and Liverpool clash at Old Trafford, whilst Arsenal host City in the four o’clock kick-off. With a host of big Fantasy assets on show, our Dugout Discussion chatroom is now open to catch the real-time yelps and cries as events unfold.

The team news for the lunchtime kick-off finds Sir Alex Ferguson opting for the experienced pairing of Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand at the back, with Jonny Evans reportedly missing out with a hamstring problem. Elsewhere in the United lineup, Danny Welbeck is drafted in, along with Shinji Kagawa as Antonio Valencia and the rather unfortunate Javier Hernandez drop to the bench.

Visitors Liverpool make just one change: Joe Allen comes into the midfield with Jordan Henderson dropping out. Andre Wisdom again occupies the right-back role, then, with Glen Johnson deployed at left-back. Both Daniel Sturridge and the returning Fabio Borini find places on the bench.
