Injury-hit squad needed reshuffle

Sitting proudly at the top of my local league again, I'm not in the comfort zone yet.

The injury to Benteke forced me to seek a replacement and that was duly found in the shape of Martial. It was a big decision to drop the in-form Vardy for the new arrival, but it's a risk I'm prepared to take. As a team, Man Utd seem to be on a roll, so I'm fielding Martial, De Gea and Smalling as they take on Arsenal.

Meanwhile, I can't afford any more injuries this week, as Yaya Toure and Koscielny are fitness doubts ahead of the weekend. Consequently, I've dropped them out of the team, with Barkley and Kolarov deputising.

In fact, the team has picked itself by default, apart from Cech. The Arsenal keeper may well play against Man Utd at the weekend, but Wenger said he's nursing an injury, so I'm not taking a risk on him.
