Mario Balotelli (Liverpool) / Forward / £10.83m - Why always him? Well, injury reports are suggesting Daniel Sturridge is struggling to be fit for the match against Aston Villa after picking up an injury on England duty, which means Mario Balotelli would lead the line, and we know how much he loves being the main man. The Italian striker's movement caused Tottenham all sorts of problems in Week Three and
Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City dominate the thoughts of Adebayo Akinfenwa as ‘The Beast’ makes five changes to his Yahoo Fantasy Premier League team ahead of game week three.

Many of you picked up on the fact we had some issues with player prices again last Saturday, and we want to be open and honest with you and try and explain why and what we’ve done to resolve this problem. As many of you know, in previous years we have introduced new players into the game at ‘base' average price, and let our player pricing algorithm grow price based on performance. Due to popular demand, we wanted to change that this year and introduce players at a more realistic price.

Antonio Mirante at Parma (€7.37) kept 13 clean sheets while Andrea Consigli at Atalanta (€7.97) performs slightly less well than the others but he saved 2 penalties.
