The Numbers Game – The Promoted Assets

Chelsea and Villa’s assets feature prominently in the top 10 of our ICT Index after Gameweek 1, with the two teams supplying five players between them after opening the season with a pair of fixtures apiece. While many of the usual suspects have made an instant impact, we turn our attentions to the newly-promoted sides and attempt to look for the positives after all three tasted defeat in their opening fixture of the 2013/14 campaign.

      Morrison or Sinclair for West Brom?

      Also is Mirallas worth having?

        Mirallas is definitely worth having

        Sinclair could be a really good option, especially in Anelka's abscence. Playing on the front left of a 4-3-3 with Long and Vydra could work well for WBA. Morrison likely playing furthest forward in the middle.

        Wait and see for me on WBA, but Sinclair is firmly on my radar.

                    Pick two from three - Collins, Toure or Turner

                        Turner & Toure for me.

                        I'm basing this on the idea that WHM we shocking away from home last year.

                        Although, you're probably looking at the lot of'em netting you 2pts, right?

                                                                        Could you say that any other side outside the top 8 would've done better in similar circumstances..?
