Gameweek 13 has flown by, but before we look to the gameweek 13 captaincy analysis, we want to take a minute to revisit last week’s picks. Gameweek 12 was a low scoring week to say the least with almost all of the most picked attackers failing to score which means that most people were left disappointed with their captaincy choice.
Here is how our picks did:
1. Sergio Aguero – 2 points
2. Diego Costa – 6 points
Gamble – Graziano Pelle – 2 points
Differential – Alexis Sanchez – 2 points
So as we said, the picks were somewhat disappointing. Now though it’s time to put last week behind us and look forward to next week.
1. Diego Costa (SUN)
The Spaniard has been a revelation since his arrival at Stamford Bridge and looks to be free of a niggling hamstring injury and ready to add to his 11 premier league goals and 69 Fantasy Premier League points! Costa and his Chelsea side come up against a Sunderland side this week, who have been struggling for goals lately which means Chelsea should score goals and it would take a brave man to bet against Costa returning a big score.
2. Alexis Sanchez (WBA)
The Chilean front-man has been carrying Arsenal lately and surely will add to his 81 Fantasy Premier League points so far this year. Arsenal play West Brom away on Saturday, and after the Baggies have lost their last 2 games, surely Arsene Wenger will want to silence his critics with a big win. If Arsenal are going to perform well then this will be good viewing for anyone with Alexis in their teams.
Differential – Wayne Rooney (HUL)
United are at home to Hull who seemed to run out of steam against Spurs on Sunday and played poorly in a loss to Burnley before that. United have picked up some form lately and Rooney looks like United’s main striker with RVP off form and Falcao still on the sidelines. Rooney is in great form for both club and country, so you surely can’t look past the United captain to score big on Saturday.
Gamble – Romelu Lukaku (TOT)
The Belgian’s form has been quite hit and miss this season but he finally looks to be hitting his stride and he will come up against a Spurs side who also haven’t been firing lately, with the last 2 games needing a red card to turn the game in Tottenham’s favour. Everton on the other hand have been playing well of late so this could possibly result in some good points for the tank!
