José Mourinho has confirmed that Diego Costa is a big doubt for tomorrow’s game against Everton. That changes my Fantasy Premier League strategy. I will be putting Howard back in goals.

"We played like a team of strangers" ~ Harry Redknapp on his team’s performance after Spurs wiped the floor with Queens Park Rangers.

I think part of the problem is this 3 at the back system. Manchester United is evidence of how it leaves the back exposed.

Everton were exposed for their lack of fitness today. Arsenal were losing to Everton 2-0 and came from behind to secure a 2-2 draw at Goodison Park. Late goals from Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud cancelled out earlier strikes from Seamus Coleman and Steven Naismith.

Ronald Koeman lost his first three league matches as coach of Feyenoord last season, but went on to finish runners-up in the Dutch league.

Southampton play against a West Brom team which has the worst form in 2014 in the Barclays Premier League. West Brom have won only four of their 20 league matches in 2014, the fewest of all teams that have played in the Premier League in 2013-14 and 2014-15.
