So with game-week 9 gone in a flash, we are now looking to game-week 10 and specifically looking at how we can gain an advantage over those in many of our leagues! Captaincy choices are always crucial, and here is what we suggest.
Firstly, here’s how the picks from last week did:
Pick 1 – Graziano Pelle – 5 points
Pick 2 – Sergio Aguero – 2 points
The Differential – Romelu Lukaku – 6 points
The Gamble – Diego Costa – 0 points
So, considering the low point scoring nature of last week, there were some ok picks. Onto game-week 10 we go, and this week’s picks are:
1. Alexis Sanchez (BUR)
With 2 goals last week, it looks as though Alexis is starting to really find his feet in the Premier League and he will want this to continue and to keep the goal scoring form going. With the Gunners hosting Burnley this week, this could be the perfect fixture for the Chilean to stamp his mark on the Premier league.
2. Diego Costa (QPR)
Yes, Diego Costa. He has missed the past two games with an injury, but I’m sure the Spanaird will be raring to go again this week. Although many of you have lost your patience with him, if you still have him then it may be worth just holding onto him this game-week, because if he does play he could have a field day against QPR. He was in close contention to make the squad last week, but didn’t quite make it, so unless there is any confirmation I would just hold onto him for one last week.
Differential – Saido Berahino (LEI)
With 7 goals in 9 games, and at just over 15% ownership, Berahino could be a fantastic differential captaincy pick for this week. Saido is the highest scoring English striker, and he is also the 3rd highest goalscorer in the league! With a visit to Leicester City this game-week, this could be the perfect time for the youngster to boost his goal tally.
Gamble – Sergio Aguero (MUN)
Last week the Argentine had plenty of opportunities but struggled to find the back of the net against West Ham, which resulted in Manchester City losing 2-1 to the Hammers. This week Manchester City and Sergio Aguero face Manchester United at the Etihad, which should be a somewhat tougher fixture than that of West Ham (although this could be debatable). Therefore it can be seen as a bit of a risk to give Aguero the armband with the fact that he blanked last week and is up against the improving United this week. However, his goal scoring record is still extremely impressive and should not be overlooked.
