EPL Matches and Players To Watch For

Taking a look at the exciting matches of the week and some of the not-so-exciting ones...

Lars Baron

Chelsea vs Manchester City

The match of the week! Manchester City will be spread thin on defense with their captain and star central defender, Vincent Kompany, out injured. Javi Garcia will once again, be forced to play out of position and cover at center back for City. This is great news for Chelsea as Javi Garcia has already been exposed this season as a man without a clue playing in defense. It's of no fault of his own, as he is naturally a midfielder, being forced to play a position he is not accustomed to. Look for Chelsea's attacking wunderkids to make his life miserable. City's makeshift defense along with the terrible form of Joe Hart should give Chelsea the edge in this match. However, City still have a dangerous attack, especially with the red-hot Sergio Aguero banging in goals for fun lately. Luckily for Chelsea, Ashley Cole has been declared fit and should take the field.

Players to stay away from: Joe Hart, Javi Garcia, any City defender

Players to target: Eden Hazard, Oscar, Willian, Schurrle, Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure, David Silva

Manchester United vs Stoke City

This game is about to start in 30 minutes and Man United will be looking to get back on track with a win here. They are currently sitting in 8th place and fans are getting worried. Moyes will be starting the game with Fellaini on the bench as well as the young Adnan Januzaj, who has been very impressive lately. We'll see if Kagawa, Rooney and Van Persie can get United three points or if they will need to bring on the reinforcements. With Alex Ferguson in attendance, I think we'll see United score a couple goals and come away with the win.

Players to stay away from: All Stoke players

Players to target: RVP, Rooney, De Gea

Everton vs Aston Villa

Lukaku. That is all.

Liverpool vs West Bromwich Albion

Suarez and Sturridge. That is all.

Norwich vs Cardiff

Ugh. This would fall under the "not-so-exciting" category. Stay away from this one.

Southampton vs Fulham

Southampton are on freaking fire and Fulham are fresh off a great victory over Crystal Palace which saw STEVE SIDWELL! score a screamer. STEVE SIDWELL! Yeah, don't start him.

Players to stay away from: Steve Sidwell

Players to target: Artur Boruc, Dejan Lovren, Dani Osvaldo, Ricky Lambert

Sunderland vs Loic Remy Newcastle United

Sunderland can't be trusted, I'd stay away from everyone on that team. Ben Arfa, Cabaye and especially Loic Remy are who you want from Newcastle.

Tottenham vs Hull City

STAY AWAY FROM ALL HULL CITY PLAYERS.

Andros Townsend, Roberto Soldado, Hugo Lloris and all Tottenham defenders are worth a look.

Swansea vs West Ham

Michu and Bony for Swansea.

Noble, Nolan, Winston Reid for West Ham.

Arsenal vs Crystal Palace

Game is over but you should have had Aaron Ramsey on your team because we've been telling you this for a while now. He had an assist. Arteta scored a penalty then got sent off. Giroud latched on to Ramsey's assist for his goal. Arsenal won 2-0 and you should have never entertained the idea of starting any Palace player.

Apologies for the lateness and shortness. Enjoy the games!
