Arsenal vs Man United - Saturday 22nd Nov - KO 17:30

 

Big games and big injuries are a real theme for Manchester United at the moment and after averaging an injury every three days since Louis Van Gaal's arrival, it will be yet another cobbled together line-up that will take on Arsenal at the Emirates. It takes some doing to out-injury Arsenal, but United are managing it, and in some style. 

 

One of the big talking points in this game after his continued fine form for England will be ex-United boy Danny Welbeck, who will no doubt have the bit between his teeth for this one. That International goal scoring form hasn't quite replicated itself in the league as yet, but what better time for Welbz to get back on track than at home against the people who didn't think he was 'Dat Guy'.

 

In all honesty neither club have have started the season all that well and neither are in great form, so this could be an equally embarrassing fixture for two historic heavyweights of the Premier League who are really struggling to find their way. These games used to be titanic clashes showcasing the very best the league had to offer, and yet this weekend it will most likely be a story of who makes the most glaring errors; Monreal or Smalling? But for England in midweek Christopher looked fairly solid at the back, and I very much liked the look of The Ox against Scotland as well, and he would represent a beastly IF for TOTW 11. 

 

Score Prediction: Arsenal 3-3 Man United

 

In Form Predictions: The Ox / Christopher Smalling

Barcelona vs Sevilla - Saturday 22nd Nov - KO 19:00

 

A few ghosts could come back to haunt Barcelona this weekend as old boy Dennis Suarez and loanee Deulofeu travel to the Camp Nou, with a chance to leap-frog their opponents in the table. But the same of course could be said in reverse as Ivan Rakitic and his glorious locks will play against the club where he earned his move to Barca for the first time.

 

The timing of the International break has probably been more favourable to Sevilla who after a four match win streak then went on to stutter against Bilbao and Levante. Barcelona however did manage to pick up a bit of form just before the break beating Almeria and Ajax after their two straight league defeats. Sevilla will have been glad of the chance to re-group and re-focus leaving them in a slightly stronger position ahead of this tie. 

 

Barca are sweating on the fitness of midfield maestro Iniesta, Mathieu and Rafinha but will still field a very strong lineup here, where they'll be hoping their own Suarez can bag his first league goal for the club (Not playing him on the wing would be a start). I think he might just do that as well, joining Messi and Neymar in the FUT 15 In Form club. 

 

Score Prediction: Barcelona 3-1 Sevilla

AC Milan vs Inter Milan - Sunday 23rd Nov - KO 19:45

 

Ah the Milan derby, a game which conjures wonderful memories of years gone by. Maldini, Inzaghi, Zanetti and even the great R9 himself have all graced this fixture and yet on Sunday it will be a comparatively uninspiring 22 who take to the field in the San Siro. Both clubs also find themselves rooted in Serie A mid-table mire with no wins in four for AC and just two in their last seven for Inter. Uninspiring on all fronts then.

 

Both clubs do however possess glimmers of hope in this fixture due to the excellent form of a few key men. Inter's first eleven constants Mauro Icardi and Mateo Kovacic, are doing the business for them this season with the former netting seven goals and a FUT 15 in-form. Whereas AC Milan's hopes pin on their own pair of mainstays FUT 15 IF sporting Menez and Honda who have ten goals between them. Not a bad return at all.

 

So, who's going to edge it? Well based on their limited efforts so far this season it may be a case that the Milan rivals simply cancel each other out. But I'm hoping for an AC Milan win here and after a pretty drab start to life in Italy I'd dearly love Fernando Torres to pop up with a couple of goals. He deserves a break, and a win here could really kick-start AC's campaign. 

 

Score Prediction: AC Milan 2-0 Inter Milan
