Week 30 Yahoo Fantasy Football

Bale should be ready to start, VDV is fit & Gallas is ok after his hamstring scare. Defoe is tipped to start after his 2 goals vs Wolves, but King, Kaboul, Woodgate, Huddlestone & Palacios are all out.

Robbie Keane is ineligible while Demba Ba & Freddie Piquionne are slight doubts.

There's a bit of defensive crisis at Villa, as Dunne, Collins & Luke Young are all unavailable. Cueller and Delph could come in to cover. Makes me worried about Friedel, but he's cheap, so I'll probably risk him.

Michael Mancienne and Michael Kightly could feature after long-term knee injuries, but Edwards & Zubar & Hunt are still out.

Fergie is without 11 injured players including Vidic, Ferdinand, Rafael & O'Shea, but Jonny Evans and Park Ji-sung could return. Scholes starts a two-match ban after picking up 10 yellow cards. Hernandez & Rooney should continue upfront but frustratingly there's no news on whether Valencia starts or comes off the bench. My gut feeling is another cameo.

Midfielder Mark Davies looks set to miss the short trip to Old Trafford after injuring his ankle during the FA Cup win over Birmingham, but Gretar Steinsson is expected to be fit despite suffering from a bug.

Vela is ineligible, Dorran & Brunt are doubts but Mulumbu has a chance of starting.

Wenger's problems are well publicised as Djourou, Fabianski, Fabregas, Song, Szczesny, Walcott & Vermaelen are all missing, but Van Persie is now close to 100% sharpness & Bendtner is back from illness - great!

Captain Lee Cattermole is hoping to return after nearly three months out with a back injury and Steve Bruce could have Nedum Onuoha and Bolo Zenden back.

Carroll could be paired with Suarez from the start for the first time, but Gerrard is out and Daniel Agger is a doubt.

Alex is in line to make his long-awaited return from a knee injury against Manchester City, but it'll probably be on the bench as Luiz will start alongside Terry. Torres will be restored to the starting line-up in place of either Drogba or Anelka.

Roberto Mancini is threatening to leave out Mario Balotelli following the striker's stupid sending off against Dynamo Kiev, so Tevez & Dzeko are likely to start. Adam Johnson is available after recovering from an an ankle injury.

Phil Neville remains a doubt with a hamstring injury, Tim Cahill is struggling with a foot problem, while Mikel Arteta and Marouane Fellaini are definitely out.

Dixon Etuhu is a doubt but Senderos & Sidwell are out. Bobby Zamora will continue his comeback from the bench as Mark Hughes resists the temptation to throw him in too early.

Ryan Nelsen is back following a suspension, although Gael Givet now begins a two-match ban. David Dunn is e doubtful, but Phil Jones is fit and available after a long term injury.

Skipper Charlie Adam is free from suspension but DJ Campbell still has two games of his ban to serve.

John Carew is out, so Jones & Walters should start upfront. Pennant and Etherington are fit.

Boss Alan Pardew will make a late decision on midfielder Joey Barton, while Jose Enrique & Jonas Gutierrez are struggling. Stephen Ireland is definitely out.

The bottom club have a fully-fit squad, with Striker Hugo Rodallega the only slight doubt after a knock in the defeat at Manchester City a fortnight ago but the Colombian has resumed training.

My current line up :

Howard, David Luiz, Smalling, Kolarov, Walker, Hoilett, Nani, Nasri, Defoe, Suarez,Bent
