Welcome to another Fantasy Premier League Captaincy Analysis for gameweek 31, as we look at the top picks and tips for the FPL gameweek ahead.
Before we do consider this week, let’s take a look at how last week’s picks did:
1. Sergio Aguero – 2 points
2. Riyad Mahrez – 3 points
3. Harry Kane – 13 points
Differential – Gylfi Sigurdsson – 9 points
Gamble – Marko Arnautovic – 9 points
Now onto this week’s tips:
1. Harry Kane (BOU)
Kane’s form recently has been fantastic, with two goals last week against Villa and I thought he was unlucky not to get a hat-trick. He hit the post twice, Lescott cleared the ball off the line when the ball was inches away from Kane, and the keeper made several good saves to deny Kane. Spurs take on Bournemouth this weekend, and as Spurs need to catch up to Leicester, Kane will be more determined than ever to score. Bournemouth have been leaking goals all season, and I don’t see that changing this weekend. Definitely one to consider captaining!
2. Jamie Vardy (CRY)
Vardy, in terms of FPL, hasn’t been fantastic these last few weeks with only two assists in his last five games. However, they take on Palace this week and I think his form will change because I believe he is well overdue a good gameweek! As everyone knows by now, Vardy is certainly capable of pulling double digits in any gameweek, and I definitely think he’ll reach double digits this week!
3. Romelu Lukaku (ARS)
Lukaku this year has been fantastic. Although at times I think he is a bit lazy, at other times I think he plays like of the best strikers in the league and that goal against Chelsea in the FA cup summed it up! He’s in fantastic form at the minute and, not considering his penalty, I thought he was unlucky not to score more against West Ham. Arsenal are a hard fixture, but their defence looked poor against Watford and they look to be coming off the back of being knocked out of 2 competitions, so can Lukaku capitalise?
Differential – Gylfi Sigurrdsson (AVL)
He was the differential last week, and is definitely the differential this week when Swansea take on Aston Villa at home. Siggy has been class these last few weeks, so you should consider him when he plays the worst defensive line in the league for years. If he does well, which is almost guaranteed, then you’ll be laughing when you look at your FPL rank!
Gamble – Sergio Aguero (MUN)
Aguero this year has been way too hit and miss. He can be unplayable at times, but then he can be awful the next week. Norwich was an example of just that, I don’t think I saw him for much of the game! However, the Manchester derby always produces goals, and with Toure back in the team, you have to admit that Aguero looks like a tasty option this week.
