Team Review: What's the Mata? (Dane Gade's side)

Dane's midfield looks the stuff of legend!

Goal Keepers
I've gone with the cookie cut combo of Mannone and Krul, as last season I learned the hard way that starting with one goal keeper that is 5.5 to 6 million does not necessarily equal clean sheets. Defenders
Debuchy is picked as a cheaper Arsenal defender. Kaboul has been selected for his scoring/assisting potential. He just needs to stay fit for once. Jones has been picked for Manchester United's favourable early draw. Felipe Luis is there as a Chelsea defender is always a good option. Midfielders
Ramsey has been selected as I don't think Sanchez is 100% fit, so Ramsey is picked as last year he just fired when he was not injured. Mata from Manchester United has been selected, for his obvious scoring potential. Fabregas ..... because it is Fabregas, duh! Eriksen as I believe he will fire this season.
Jovetic has been picked due to his stunning preseason form. He was dogged by injury in his debut campaign for Man City, so no one ever really got to see just how scary he is in front of goal. Now he is fit and firing, his preseason form shows that he has the potential to take the Premier League by storm. He is a bit risky, but could help me get a head start on other teams if he does get going early. Rooney has been picked due to his consistency, Man United's early draw and the fact Robin van Persie is out. Bench
Bojan from Stoke has been selected as I saw him score as a teenager for Barcelona. The guy is a jet. His preseason form for Stoke just shows the guy is a talent. Quite tempted to put him on the field. Chambers, at 4.5 and an Arsenal defender, with Mertesacker and Koscielny in doubt for GW1 should see game time. I might even take Jones off field and put Chambers in. Ince has been picked for my final bench position, due to him having a knack for scoring and assisting. Even though Snodgrass will take the set pieces for Hull, Ince will still ind the back of the net on some occasions. He is perfect as a final bench position filler.
