Our last week’s Captain Picks went well with Tosun being the only one misfiring. The importance of choosing the right captain was seen last week with all the people NOT CAPTAINING Sergio Aguero paying heavily. We take a look at Captain Picks for the upcoming week, picks that can help you recover some valuable lost points of the previous 2 weeks.
Aubameyang (v/s West Ham Utd) (H)
Aubameyang is going through a poor run of form but we believe that his fortunes will change as Arsenal host West Ham at the Emirates. The Gabonese striker missed a sitter against Chelsea, failing to make an impact on the match. Making fine runs in the box, it’s just a matter of time that he would find the back of the net with the likes of Ozil and Mkhitaryan feeding him pinpoint through balls.
Priced at £11.0m Aubameyang would be hoping to come good for the FPL managers that have put their faith in him as the Arsenal striker is the 4th most transferred out player overall.
Mo Salah (v/s Brighton) (H)
The Egyptian King was at it again in GW2 for Liverpool, providing 2 FPL assists against Crystal Palace and picking up 9 points. Salah would love to be on the score sheet again as Brighton visit Liverpool at Anfield. The target man for the Reds, be it during open play or counters, Salah comes with an ownership of 54.6% and FPL managers would be counting on their main man to deliver for them again.
Troy Deeney (v/s Crystal Palace) (H)
The Watford Captain did the damage against the Clarets, scoring a goal & picking up an assist. His performance earned him 3 Bonus Points as well. Watford are high on confidence and they’d love to make it 3 wins out of 3 games with Deeney leading from the front and scoring goals for the Hornets.
Sergio Aguero (v/s Wolves) (A)
The Argentine forward scored a superb hat-trick against the Terriers as Manchester City ran riots at the Etihad, beating a hapless Huddersfield 6-1. Given City’s style of play Aguero is always a big goal scoring threat going forward with the midfield tirelessly feeding him balls to finish. Aguero & Co. visit the newly promoted Wolves and in the absence of star midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, City will be highly dependent on their all time top scorer Sergio Aguero to make the difference once again.
Eden Hazard (v/s Newcastle) (A)
Hazard made another substitute appearance and immediately had an impact on the game, assisting Marcos Alonso’s winner against the Gunners. In 10 appearances against Newcastle, the Belgian winger has scored 6 goals and assisted on 3 occasions, making him an instant captain contender.
