Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City dominate the thoughts of Adebayo Akinfenwa as ‘The Beast’ makes five changes to his Yahoo Fantasy Premier League team ahead of game week three.

Out go Dejan Lovren, Cesc Fabregas, Wayne Routledge, Saido Berahino and sub Matty Phillips to be replaced by Calum Chambers, Yaya Toure, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Romelu Lukaku and super-sub Erik Lamela.

Retaining Vincent Kompany and adding in Yaya Toure is consistant with ‘Bayo’s view that “City are in good shape, beating Liverpool last week and Toure looks like he is coming into form nicely". He added: "Stoke’s new-look strike force of Mame Biram Diouf and Bojan haven’t looked dangerous yet so I’m going for a City clean sheet and a decisive contribution from Toure.”

Arsenal face Leicester on Sunday at the King Power Stadium and ‘The Beast’ can only see one result. “I can see Arsenal scoring a few here. Alexis Sanchez got off the mark in midweek against Besiktas and him and Oxlade-Chamberlain could get me a great points haul this week.

Chelsea away at Everton is the other game that captured Adebayo’s imagination.

“I can see Chelsea winning this by the odd goal, but Lukaku has got something to prove against Chelsea so I’m adding him to the mix. I’m keeping Courtois because he was such great value and Cahill is always liable to pop up with a goal from a set play.

“I have kept Diego Costa even though he is an injury doubt because I got him at a good price. I’ve saved in other areas so I can have Erik Lamela on the bench to come in if Costa is ruled out. Lamela is flying at the moment and with Glen Johnson and Alberto Moreno doubtful, he could have a field day against Liverpool’s back-up full backs. ”
