So gameweek 32 has been and gone, and now we are looking towards gameweek 33. With the amount of remaining gameweeks reducing and the amount of time to climb those ranks becoming less, it is of paramount importance that you get your captaincy choices correct! Before we have a look at this weeks picks, here is how last weeks picks did:
1. Harry Kane – 2 points
2. Eden Hazard – 6 points
3. Olivier Giroud – 2 points
Differential – Wayne Rooney – 5 points
Gamble – Saido Berahino – 2 points
So not the greatest of weeks, but there were a lot of poor performances this week. Anyway, onwards and upwards:
1. Sergio Aguero (WHU) Manchester City are seemingly out of form, yet this Argentine still managed to find the back of the net twice last week. Aguero has struggled to find the back of the net of late but with two last week, City will look to this man for a source of goals to help them out of the rut they are in. With a game against West Ham this week, we could see some goals as West Ham have dipped in form a little and it could be argued that they don’t have much to play for.
2. Harry Kane (NEW)
Since the young Englishman has taken the Spurs captaincy he has really struggled somewhat to find the net. Maybe his eyes aren’t fully concentrating on the goal with this added pressure? Either way we don’t expect it will be long before he re-finds his shooting boots and chalks up a few more goals for th season. With a game this week against Newcastle, it could a perfect game for him to score big like he is used too.
3. Eden Hazard (MUN)
Hazard has arguably been the stand out midfielder of the season and with Chelsea riding high at the top of the league, they have a lot of this success due to their Belgian wizard’s form. With 12 goals and 9 assists throughout the season so far, he will surely play a big part in this weeks fixture against Manchester United if Chelsea are going to come out with 3 points.
Differential – Yannick Bolasie (WBA)
Do we need to say much here after his recent performance? Last week Bolasie and Palace took Sunderland apart beating them 1-4 with Bolasie grabbing a hat-trick! With bags of pace and flare, Yannick is a threat to any team and with them going up against West Brom, Lescott and Dawson should be afraid.
Gamble – Graziano Pelle (STK)
Last week Pelle FINALLY found the goal again, with his first goal in 14 Premier League games, it was one that was definitely needed! Before this, Pelle was in good goalscoring form, with 6 goals in 6 gameweeks (gameweek 2-8). This boost in confidence could really help the Italian striker and he may be one to watch out for as Southampton go to face Stoke City this week.
