A topic for discussion as it could have some interesting fantasy ramifications: the concept of Wigan (or any other '2nd tier' team) resting players at Old Trafford (e.g. Anfield/Arsenal/Chelsea, etc.) which is an unusual one; the idea was road-tested by West Bromwich Albion at Chelsea. They lost 4-0, a precedent Paul Jewell's side emulated last night at OT.
Could this be the new 'in-fashion' thing to do? Roll-over and die when faced with playing a far better team and save your better players for matches with at least a hope of winning? As a fantasy manager, should you rotate your line up more often, and look to these match-ups in order to stock your fantasy team with visions of lots o'goals, shots and potential clean sheets?
Let's just hope the Prem doesn't suffer because of this.
