Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata and last-chance-saloon Eden Hazard look set to be popular captaincy picks in Gameweek 21
Good evening Fantasy Premier League managers – I hope you’re all having a successful Gameweek 20 and are looking forward to having the hat-trick specialist Harry Kane on your bench this weekend. I know I’m not!
Saying that, it was interesting to see that some FPL bosses on Twitter this week have discussed the possibility of doing a one-week hop-on, hop-off with Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata, before drafting Kane back in again for Double Gameweek 22 against Swansea and West Ham.
Last weeks Gameweek 20 Captains Poll topper Harry Kane, dominated the poll with 45% of all votes and boy did he deliver the FPL goods – bagging a hat-trick and 3 bonus points which led to a colossal 34-point haul for those who stuck the armband on him.
Elsewhere, Salah (22%) delivered 18 points as captain, Morata (6%) returned 12 points and the man who we’re all losing our patience with, Hazard, produced just 6 points with the armband.
Gameweek 22 sees some favourable match-ups on offer, as Chelsea welcome a defence-less Stoke City to Stamford Bridge – could this be a last chance saloon Gameweek for Hazard owners, or will you play safe with Morata?
Should we follow the form of fantasy assets from Liverpool as they welcome The Foxes to Anfield on Saturday afternoon? If so, will it be Firmino, Coutinho or the King of FPL 2017, Mohamed Salah who takes your fancy?
An away trip down South to Selhurt Park for Pep and Co. in Gameweek 21 should also be seen as a golden opportunity for a captaincy selection – aside from the Kun vs Jesus uncertainty, Raheem Sterling has now bagged 3 consecutive double-digit point-hauls (12, 13 and 11) in his last 3 Premier League outings – hard to ignore such form.
Whatever your thoughts, plans or questions might be, please cast your captaincy pick to the poll below and reach out to me on Twitter via @FFPundits_Drew ahead of Saturday’s Gameweek 21 2pm deadline.
