Game Week 2: What I've Learnt...

Well, from who played anyway. Other teams are involved in European fixtures this week.

Birmingham City
- Home form crucial to Premier League hopes.

Burnley - Brian Jensen will be just as important to their fortunes as the goals they score.

- Deco may prove integral in 4-4-2 diamond formation, Essien to play defensive.

Hull City
- Start with Geovanni, main creative threat.

- Have faith in youth, don't panic buy, i.e. Kyrgiakos.

Manchester United - Expect to delve into transfer market for big name player.

- Favourites for relegation.

Stoke City
- As before, Delap - throw - goal won't win you every game, especially away at Anfield.

- Bent important, don't take the foot off the gas when ahead against bigger teams. Cana and Cattermole would be missed.

Tottenham Hotspur - Defoe to have biggest season yet, with club and country.

Wigan Athletic
- Flying (too) high after result at Villa Park.

- Milijas just as important as Ebanks-Blake and Kightly, impressive first two games for the Serb.
