The second most potent attack comes up against the second stingiest defence in the game of the weekend. Last week City against Chelsea produced one goal and a victory for the Chelsea defenders, with none of City’s attacking flair players picking up any worthwhile scores. If this Liverpool v Arsenal game follows a similar pattern, it’ll be the Arsenal defenders adding to your score over the Suarez and Sturridge partnership.

Whipping boys Fulham play champions Manchester United. How will the best front three in the country (Moyes’ words, not mine) cope with the worst defence in the league – any league. You’d expect better than they did against Stoke last weekend. Surely Mata, Van Persie and Rooney will be among the contenders for player of the week this week against a side who were dumped out of the FA Cup by a League two relegation candidate on Tuesday. Even with the likely inclusion of their big money deadline day singing, Konstantinos Mitroglou.

For clean sheet action, look to the North East again. Sunderland face a Hull side who haven’t scored an away goal for nearly two months. Not only are Sunderland keeping clean sheets, but they’re obviously having to work to do so. Vito Mannone is picking up plenty of save points, and their defenders are weighing in with plenty of bonuses too. And Chelsea should keep a blank against a demoralised looking Newcastle, who are still without Loic Remy. It’s six clean sheets in eight for Chelsea. Azpilicueta and Cahill both come in at under £6 million and are getting plenty of game time. Cahill, in particular, in recent weeks, has also contributed five bonus points and a couple of assists.
