Captaincy Analysis – Game-week 5

Game-week 4 has drifted by with some people claiming their highest points tally of the season.

Firstly, last weeks picks. Two did really well, and two not so (notably Raheem Sterling). Here’s how they did:
Pick 1 – Raheem Sterling – 1 points
Pick 2 – Wayne Rooney – 10 points
The Differential – Eric Lamela – 2 points
The Gamble – Diego Costa – 17 points

So they didn’t do too bad.

Anyway, onto the next week. Here is our analysis of the potential Game-week 5 captaincies.

1. Angel Di Maria (LEI)

The Manchester United new boy looked extremely impressive against QPR, seeing him pick up a goal and an assist. We can see this only improving as he bonds more with his new team-mates. Leicester should give United a run for their money though after impressive displays for a promoted side in difficult fixtures.

2. Diego Costa (MCI)

With 7 goals in his first 4 Premier League games, and it has to be said the first player to ever do that, the Spaniard looks like he is a Fantasy Football must have. Although Chelsea face Manchester City this week we wouldn’t bet against him finding the back of the net, especially if he picks up an “injury” in training. As his fixture is of this difficulty, this is why he is our number 2 captaincy pick.

Differential – Remy Cabella (HUL)

With Newcastle sitting bottom of the table with just 2 points, this game is a must win game, and what a better game to find their form than against Hull City. Newcastle will look to their newbies, especially Cabella who has looked impressive in parts of his first few games, and this week could see him reignite the better performances such as the one against Manchester City.

Gamble – Mario Balotelli (WHU)

Balotelli has looked somewhat lacklustre since his move from AC Milan to Anfield. This game against West Ham could be the perfect opportunity for him to find the back of the net.
