The FPL Captains Poll - Gameweek 12

8:19am Nov 14 2016

As Chelsea’s Eden Hazard and Diego Costa have injury flags against their name, does this leave FPL managers with no option other than giving the FPL captains armband to Manchester City’s, Sergio Aguero…?

Hello and welcome back to all Fantasy Premier League managers around the world, as we, the Fantasy Football Pundits come out of our short spell of hibernation and look ahead to the Gameweek 12 schedule.

As always, the international breaks tend to throw a spanner in the works, as players pick up knocks and minor injuries whilst representing their clubs abroad – and this international break in particular has given us its fair share of headaches before Gameweek 12.

The in-form Arsenal striker limped out of a training session with Chile last Tuesday and did not feature in their World Cup qualifying game against Columbia. Arsene Wenger had expressed his concerns requested that Sanchez be left out of this weeks clash with Uruguay – Sanchez, however declared himself fit and played 84 minutes of the game vs Columbia, scoring twice in their 3-1 victory.

Belgium cruised to an 8-1 victory in sensational style against Estonia in their World Cup qualifier, Twitter went in to meltdown as Eden Hazard signalled to the bench that he wanted to be substituted, after Gert Kams appeared to stand on his foot. Roberto Martinez, soon after the game, allayed any serious injury fears and was quoted as saying “it’s just a knock on the calf”

So, with yellow injury flags against the names of Eden Hazard and Diego Costa, does this now leave the door wide open for a bombardment of Sergio Aguero captaincy picks for Gameweek 12, or are you able to unearth a hidden gem or differential?
