A few things pop out at me, looking at the lineups for today's FA Cup games.
Man City: Given, Richards, Garrido, Sylvinho, Kompany, Zabaleta, Petrov, Weiss, De Jong, Mwaruwari, Boyata.Mancini looks to have named six defenders in his side. Garrido starts after his free kick goal in midweek. If he's at left back, then perhaps Sylvinho is at left midfield and Kompany is in midfield. Why Mancini thinks he can play MPet on the right is beyond me. But if Sylvinho doesn't have to actually defend, he could be a really nice fantasy option. Though likely that spot goes to Bellamy in a league game.
Subs: Taylor, Barry, Tevez, Vidal, Bellamy, Trippier, Tutte.
Stoke: Sorensen, Huth, Cort, Higginbotham, Collins, Lawrence, Delap, Whitehead, Etherington, Beattie, Fuller.Tuncay finds himself back on the bench as Pulis goes looking for goals. I don't know if he's being rested, but I'm guessing that if Beattie/Fuller works today we'll see that pairing again against Fulham.
Subs: Simonsen, Whelan, Sidibe, Pugh, Sanli, Tonge, Wilkinson.
Sunderland: Fulop, Bardsley, Cana, Da Silva, McCartney, Malbranque, Meyler, Henderson, Murphy, Campbell, Bent.No Reid. No Zenden. No Jones.
Subs: Carson, Healy, O'Donovan, Reed, Anderson, Noble, Liddle.
Everton: Howard, Hibbert, Heitinga, Neill, Baines, Pienaar, Neville, Cahill, Fellaini, Bilyaletdinov, Vaughan.As we expected, Vaughan the lone striker. In more ways than one.
Subs: Nash, Coleman, Duffy, Forshaw, Agard, Baxter, Mustafi.
Tottenham: Gomes, Hutton, Dawson, Bassong, Bale, Kranjcar, Huddlestone, Palacios, Modric, Keane, Defoe.Bale the starting left back in BA-E's absence. Modric is 'arry's "answer" on the right of midfield, sans Lennon.
Subs: Alnwick, Pavlyuchenko, Crouch, Naughton, Giovani, Corluka, Rose.
