Never Captain Nicky Butt goes with: GK: Szczesny D: Kompany – Ivanovic – Gunter.

M: Mata – N’Zogbia – Taarabt – Michu

F: Torres – Aguero – Pogrebnyak

Subs: Federici – Joe Allen – K. Gibbs – Rafael

He also provides the most fantasy friendly match up and his studs and duds for game week 1.

Fantasy Football Scout has 14 picks for week 1.

(Fedrici, Kompany, Vermaelen, Ivanovic, Mata, Cazorla, Y. Toure, Hoilett, Toress, Aguero and Petric with subs of Pogrebnyak, Hangeland and N’Zogbia).

To see why these players are recommend continue reading the scouts picks for game week 1.

Fantasy Yirma has some interesting picks and insights to help you picking your team for game week 1. Again Chelsea players – Hazard, Mata, Torres are recommended as well as Frank Lampard. One big player they have mentioned is Manchester United’s Vidic who priced at just 7.0 looks like a real steal for a season long singing! Read the rest of their game week 1 picks.

Never Manage Alone goes with slightly different approach with as many as 5 players from the two teams that play twice in game week 1 (Chelsea and Reading).

Their team: Reina, Lescott, Coloccini, Cole, Ivanovic, Harte in goal and defence. Hazard, McAnuff (Reading), Taarbart, Michu and Joe Allen. While their striker recommendations are: Aguero, Podolski and Cisse.

They have some more recommendations as well and explain why they have selected each pick.

Also remember to check Physio Room for the latest update on injuries.

Overall the most common picks seem to be Ivanovic, Mata, Torres, Aguero and Pogrebnyak.

For the top 3 outside picks we would recommend Darren Bent (as does NCNB), Giroud (from Tom at Fantasy Yirma) and Fabio playing at QPR.

    Mata might not be starting. He could be rested as he took part in the Euros & Olympics.

      Bloody hell, I’ve got him too. Knew I should’ve gone with Hazard, at least he’s not a starting risk 😉
