SWP back

Just two weeks after what was going to be a four/five week injury. With Robinho back too, and Sturridge rather than Caicedo it's a much stronger side than I thought it was going to be.

We've also selected five defenders - Bridge, Dunne, Onuoha, Richards and Zabaleta - so barring some unlikely tactical rejig one of them will move into midfield. Richards played in midfield in Midtjylland in August and was dire, so I guess it will be Zabaleta. He's played there before apparently.

PS Vladi Weiss makes the bench for the first time in the Premier League.
