Apologies for not getting this out sooner. I hope no bad decisions were based on a lack of decent information. Injury roundup from around the league:
Gerrard and Torres are both confirmed to be out (Football 365). For weekly replacements I still like the Arsenal pair of Fabregas and Van Persie. I also really like Adebayor's matchup against Wigan and he is a long term buy so might be a good fir for Torres owners.
Rooney is confirmed as being out (Football365). With his upcoming fixtures, Rooney is a sell rather than bench player and as with Torres I'd go with Van Persie or Adebayor to replace him.
Van der Sar is definitely back which spells the end of Ben Foster (Football365). I considered replacements earlier in the week here.
Michael Ballack will miss the Villa game after a tackle from teammate Yuri Zhirkov while on international duty (BBC). Is there anyone I tipped this week and haven't cursed!
Eduardo is out for the Gunners (BBC)
Lescott, Toure, Bellamy and De Jong all have knocks though reports suggest they could play (BBC)
None of these really effect my clean sheet picks though obviously Rooney is out of my captaincy picks.
Jamie O'Hara (ineligible)
