Last weeks we saw a master class from Manchester City and we did tip a Manchester City striker, just the wrong one! Just our luck. Kane also continued to frustrate managers with another blank, but before we look onto this weeks Captaincy Analysis, here’s how last weeks picks did:
1. Harry Kane – 2 points
2. Gabriel Jesus – 6 points
3. Romelu Lukaku – 12 points
Differential – Jamie Vardy – 9 points
Gamble – Alvaro Morata – 1 point
Now onto this weeks Captaincy Analysis:
1. Sergio Aguero (CRY)
With 4 goals and 2 assists in the past two games, Aguero is definitely is our number one pick for captaincy, because as we all know, when Aguero is in form, it’s very hard to stop him. This week, City take on Palace, a team yet to score, or even pick up a point from their opening 5 games. Manchester City have scored 11 in their last two fixtures and this could be a cricket score if Aguero is on his ‘A-Game’! His ownership is now 20%, which is quite low for the striker with the highest amount of points!
2. Alvaro Morata (STK)
Morata has also started off the season quite well, scoring 3 goals and assisting twice. With Hazard returning back to the team, this could see Morata with more opportunities to find the back of the net and with an away game against Stoke this week, it’s a perfect chance to show the league how devastating this partnership could be. Morata’s ownership is slightly less than Aguero’s at 17%, but this is expected to rise come Sunday due to his good form!
3. Alexis Sanchez (WBA)
After a summer of confusion, many are surprised to see that Sanchez is still wearing an Arsenal shirt, however it’s likely he’ll be starting from now onwards. Sanchez scored 24 goals last season as well as picking up 11 assists. There’s no doubting Sanchez’s quality, but it’s the amount of minutes he’ll play that has many worried. With Welbeck and Ozil out for this game, Sanchez will surely now step into the starting line-up and he’s surely getting on the scoresheet against West Brom.
Differential – Pascal Gross (NEW)
Pascal Gross was one of the leading footballers in the Bundesliga due to his ability to create chances. Groß has certainly shown glimpses of this from in the early gameweeks and if he can replicate this against Newcastle, then Brighton will surely be able to carve through Benitez’ men. Newcastle’s defence looked shaky last gameweek, so can Gross capitalise on that? His ownership is only 8%, so if he does perform well, then he’ll certainly be able to boost your ranking, especially for those who have had a poor start to the FPL campaign.
Gamble – Harry Kane (WHU)
Kane has never been a good starter to the Premier League season and this season has been no exception. 4 out of 5 of the gameweek’s have seen blanks for Kane, but that could be down to the “Wembley Factor”. This week, Spurs take on West Ham away from home and for Spurs, away games are probably a better option for them. Kane is a gamble due to his poor start, but we all know how good Kane can be in front of goal.
