Welcome to another Fantasy Premier League captaincy analysis article for the upcoming gameweek 25, where we try and give you the best FPL captaincy tips for the week. Before we get down to business we will look back on the FPL gameweek just gone.
1. Sergio Aguero – 5 points
2. Romelu Lukaku – 1 point
3. Dele Alli – 10 points
Differential – Dimitri Payet – 3 points
Gamble – Jamie Vardy – 13 points
So all in all it was a mixed bag for our recommendations but now it’s time to move on to the picks for the upcoming fixtures.
1. Harry Kane (WAT)
For those who captained him, I’d genuinely feel slightly unlucky as although he scored two, he could have scored four or five. He hit the post twice, had several one-on-one chances that he should have scored, and created several chances. Slightly risky captain choice as they take on Watford, who managed to keep an in-form Chelsea out of the goal on Wednesday, however the Dele Alli – Harry Kane combo is one of the best in the league at the minute, it looks like no one can stop them!
2. Ross Barkley (STK)
If you watched the game against Newcastle, you’d see that Barkley was magnificent. Every attack Everton had, Barkley was always involved in it. He’ll feel hard done by to only get two goals (One of which was a panenka penalty!) because he hit the post, he had so many chances, he created a ton for his team mates, it really was a class performance. They take on Stoke this Saturday who have been quite poor recently, so will he get on the scoresheet again?
3. Jamie Vardy (MCI)
The incredible season that Vardy is having just doesn’t want to end. Two goals against Liverpool meant he is on 17 for the season, and with an injury to Lukaku, Vardy looks like a decent pick for captaincy. There’s no point even mentioning who they play, because we all know by now that Vardy is fixture proof. Man City’s defence looked shaky against Sunderland, so on paper, he looks the perfect choice for captaincy!
Differential – Alexis Sanchez (BOU)
Bit of a disappointing display from Sanchez last week, however he has the chance to make up for it as they take on Bournemouth this week, and as we all know from the previous two seasons, Sanchez can return big, even on a ‘bad’ day! I’d definitely advise on captaining someone else if you have a good rank as his form is poor in the league, but if you feel risky, go for it!
Gamble – Sergio Aguero (LEI)
He’s only the gamble because they take on Leicester this weekend who have been fantastic in defence these past couple of weeks. The last time they played it was a 0-0 draw, so I would be cautious captaining him as Leicester will be wanting to keep them off the scoresheet. There’s no doubt that Aguero has the capability of beating the defence, and if you love a gamble, go for it!
We hope you have enjoyed this gameweek captaincy article, best of luck to all!
