Per Mertesacker : The German has been in inspirational form for the Gunners whether it comes to keeping clean sheets or winning crucial headers and scoring from corners. As Arsenal line up against an inspiring Cardiff City side who held Manchester United last week, Mertesacker is worth the bet at 5 points for your team. You can also consider Koscielny if you want further variations.
Moreover, if you are on a shoe string budget, Newcastle United’s Mark Williamson, who will play at centre back against West Brom at the Sports Direct Arena is a great bet to have in your team. It is also a good time to transfer out Southampton defenders as Saints have back to back tough fixtures.
