On the Forecast: Gameweek 5

Who's the best marksman?
Gameweek 5 Two-Liners (Ranking are based on the expected performance);

Top-Rank

BLA vs ARS

BLA - Managed to get their first point on away assignment, defense is improving thanks to Scott Dann and not short of attackers which are threatening especially at home;

ARS - VPersie may have Gervinho back into the side, the spine of the team is looking to get in shape but don't expect a big drubbing like last season;

Prediction - A tight Gunners win;

FUL vs MANC

FUL - Fluid and very tight at home, Dempsey's attacking quality may diminish if he plays too deep and Zamora is getting to his best;

MANC - No problem in scoring, defense extremely strong, Silva looks the best bet for all occasion and expect the striking dilemma to continue;

Prediction - Tougher resistance albeit another away win;


BOL vs NOR

BOL - Now famously known to attack but still three losses in the row, the consensus is don't too rely on the defenders even though free-scoring Cahill is there;

NOR - Record shows they are playing much better away regardless of results (2 losses, 2 draws), have to trim down the defensive error while improving the supply lines for the monstrous Holt;

Prediction - Trotters to win 3-2;

Dzeko could also play either role of getting subbed
MIddle-Rank


MANU vs CHE

MANU - Getting Roon is essential but not captaining him is looking to be more disastrous, goals and assists come from everywhere (beware of whoever playing the wingbacks) in the Theater of Dreams;

CHE - Mata, Sturridge, Meireles and even Torres are looking to impress AVB here, admirable team depth and they don't have Arsenal's early season problem mind you;

Prediction - A draw is the likely result but you may go for a home win if Rooney is your captain though;


TOT vs LIV

TOT - I hope Adebayor will be crisis-free to maintain his form, no issue on Parker marshaling the engine room while I'm still waiting Bale to come to life;

LIV - After two games we can say that Pool are too reliant on Suarez more than other signings, Carroll is nowhere to be seen and defensively they need to fill the gap seriously;

Prediction - End to end action which ended with a draw;


EVE vs WIG

EVE - They need to start scoring from anywhere other than Baines and likewise Baines need to be healthy for them but the upcoming fixtures are nightmarish scary I tell you;

WIG - They surely not getting relegated (Are they?) but with a respectable backline in store, all they need to do is to turn on the scoring mode, that's all;

Prediction - Wigan can only get a draw here;


WOL vs QPR

WOL - Unexpectedly, they look ordinary without Jarvis (or Spurs are too good), need to take full advantage of the home ground more seriously and complacency is intolerable;

QPR - Famous signings trying to play together and trying to get the first win (can they?) but unmistakably I do feel they are on the right track, Barton's as captain is a masterclass tactic by the manager;

Prediction - QPR to get something away;

Anticipating the fourth loss???
Low-Rank


AST vs NEW

AST - Agbonlahor is looking to produce more than Bent (but dont give up yet!) but fantasy-wise Nzog is looking more unappealing day by day, obviously they are exceptionally tight at home;

NEW - With the best start of the season, first their quality lies particularly in their defense and second is their unrecognisable/unproven set of striker who are waiting to explode, I bet you want to play Simpson this week!;

Prediction - Draw boring draw;


SUN vs STK

SUN - Time is not on Steve Bruce's side to get the things going, Bendtner has to do better for the real recognition, winless at home this season, for sure not another loss right?;

STK - A totally dark horse up to gameweek 4 with resolute defenders, defensive shielding by midfielders and a trio of beanpole head-bangers (beanpole may apply to Crouch only), that's compact man;

Prediction - Interesting matchup to slug it out, they maybe satisfied with one point;


SWA vs WBA

SWA - Maybe this weekend is the day they score the first goal of the season, the real value comes from the middle and wingbacks while the strikeforce still toothless but the home advantage still count though;

WBA - The Hodgson's ultra defensive mold is getting into completion, offensively balance upfront especially the introduction of Odemwingie but as I said before, their unpredictability is dangerous;

Prediction - Swans's first goal this weekend but Brums may left with full points;
