#CalledIt Differential Pick - GW13

Last week, Mr. #CalledIt for GW12 a.k.a. Yohan Cabaye delivered already in the opening minutes of the game, for which I thank him very much. Admittedly, I imagined he would upgrade that assist with a goal or two by the end of the game, but hey, not bad!

This week I can't look past Theo Walcott. Finally back. Finally healthy. He has been "eased back" in the past two games (League and Europe) and still managed to look dangerous in the limited time given. I hope he gets a start this week, but even if he doesn't, I recommend getting him early. He will start sooner or later and I imagine he will find himself on the receiving end of many brilliant passes from Ozil and Cazorla and favor him to score plenty of goals (or assists to Giroud for that matter). He has shown glimpses of greatness last year and if he wants to take his career to the next level THIS is the season he needs to do so. Want to go to the 2014 FIFA World Cup (NOT as a spectator), Theo? NOW is your chance. Theo Walcott, #CalledIt for GW13. Man with a mission.

Other options for this week, if you are looking for differentials, would have to be Alvaro Negredo as City look to continue their scorching home form and, if you are really inclined to taking changes, what about Shinji Kagawa against Tottenham? He seemed to be in top form against Bayer Leverkusen and Moyes hinted he might engage in a little bit of rotation. With a pretty solid run of fixtures after GW14, if he secures that midfield spot, he could be an interesting choice.
