Manchester City's Gael Clichy filled in at right-back against Newcastle on Sunday and put in a magnificent display to help his side to victory.
It was a surprise to see the Frenchman line-up on the right in place of Pablo Zabaleta, who hasn't quite recovered from his long summer, with Aleksandar Kolarov on the left. But Clichy didn't let anyone down as he won eight tackles, intercepted four passes and generally looked awesome. When you throw in clean sheet points it was a monster week in the Yahoo game, with a return of 18 points, and we'll be monitoring the full-back over the coming weeks to see if he can keep up this form.

Left back Gael Clichy has been ruled out of Manchester City's match against Stoke City, along with skipper Vincent Kompany, Micah Richards and new signing Martin Demichelis.

Clichy's absence is especially interesting to fantasy managers as it opens the door for Aleksandar Kolarov to start. While Kolarov in reality is not a highly rated defender, he does possess an arsenal of attacking ability, will be on plenty of set-pieces and delivers crosses and key passes that tend to turn into assists. Investment is recommended here.

Manchester City left-back Gael Clichy has signed a new four-year deal that commits him to the club until 2017.

Clichy was one of the more consistent City performers throughout the season and has been duly rewarded with a new and improved contract. The deal is likely to see Aleksandar Kolarov on the bench for much of the new campaign, although the Serbian may seek a move away from the Etihad after starting just 9 league games this term.
