Seb Larsson Availability- An Update

This afternoon we bring you a quick update on the availability of Seb Larsson ahead of tomorrow’s game with Bolton.

Larsson has been attributed with 4 yellow cards in the Fantasy Premier League (FPL) game and, having picked up a booking in the Carling Cup game against Brighton, it was assumed he had reached the automatic 5 yellows which instantly result in a one-match ban.

However, having spoken to the FA in the past twenty minutes, it turns out that a yellow card attributed to Larsson in the 4-0 win over Stoke on 18th September was, in fact, for Craig Gardner.

Despite many press sources –including the Press Association, who provide data to the FPL game- reporting Larsson as the recipient, it turns out the Swede was the victim of mistaken identity.

As a result, he will be free to play in tomorrow’s game against Bolton.

      I think so. McLeish's pet project and Villa didn't do too well last game when he didn't start so I reckon he'll play.

      Always feels bad benching a higher value but in this case it's justified. I have Krul and Simpson and I'm doubling up.

      No love for NZog ? Or is Bannon the AV midfield cover I need ?

      I have Sturridge, Suarez & Adebayor up front so don't want to shift them.

      Am either going to go:
      Barton > NZog / Bannon then Suarez > Rooney following week
      or
      Barton > Gerrard then Sturridge > Agbon following week.

      Any obvious mistakes there ? Thnx

        Barton > Gerrard then Sturridge > Agbon could work out great. Not sure about Gerard but you have to get them before they are on fire.

    I’m thinking of bringing in VDV but it would mean selling either Nani or Silva. Any thoughts?

    Silva is such a great player to watch and has performed in nearly every gameweek. However, I’m just a little worried that the bonus points system rewards goalscorers first and foremost..and while Silva plays well and has 5 assists in the last 4 matches he’s started, its not getting recognised by the BPs. Van Der Vaart on the other hand isnt playing as well or for as long but is scoring goals and racking up the BPs.

    Is it flawed logic to bring VDV in for Silva?

    Is Barry Bannan the best option for midfield (price under 5.5) for the next three gameweeks? I wanna get Suarez in for Balotelli and need to transfer Brunt to someone under 5.5 to free up funds.

    Great responses on keepers, lads. Cheers!

    So my team for this week without any transfers looks like this:

    Schwarzer

    S Taylor, N Taylor, Bosingwa
    Mata, Arteta, Silva, Murphy
    Agbonlahor, Adebayor, Rooney

    Subs: Vorm, N Dyer, P Jones, Lescott

    Think I'm ok without the transfer so might as well save it. Any thoughts on that?
