As the 2020/2021 Premier League season comes to an end, fantasy football managers across the globe are entering the final weeks of the game and will be constantly pondering their lines ups and captain selections.
If you have somehow managed to make it this far through the season without using your triple captain, it might be your last chance to take the top spot in your leagues. However, you’re likely now left with a tough decision to make. With only three Premier League gameweeks left, the choices are limited, and you’ll want to make the right call with who you decide to triple captain.
Getting Involved with Fantasy Football
Are you new to FPL? With the season coming to a close shortly, it’s likely too late to get involved with any competitive leagues. However, joining in now can give you good practice for next season and get you used to how the game works. To summarise how FPL works, it’s a free-to-play game in which your team of players earn points weekly based on how they perform in real-life fixtures.
Despite being free to play, many players choose to enter leagues with friends and others and bet on weekly or season outcomes. Betting on fantasy football is another example of how virtual gaming is becoming a more popular choice of wagering for people across the globe. As seen through the games listed at asiabet.org, mobile gaming and esports have boomed in popularity in recent years and their audience continues to grow.
It’s also become common for punters to bet on games such as League of Legends, Fortnite and Overwatch. As fantasy football continues to grow, it’s possible we could see the betting market for FPL expand even more, similarly to popular esports.
Triple Captain Tips for the Final Three Gameweeks
Returning to the matter at hand, we’ve picked out some of the most promising options which might be able to earn you the points you need to leapfrog your opponents in the league table.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin – Everton vs Sheffield United – Gameweek 36
After originally starting his career at Sheffield United, Dominic Calvert-Lewin has blossomed at Everton, especially over the past two seasons. With 16 Premier League goals in 20/21, Calvert-Lewin has already broken his highest-scoring season record and is in a rich reign of form.
Everton are still in the hunt for a European place and will fancy their chances against a woeful Sheffield United side whose confidence could not be any lower, having already had their relegation confirmed weeks ago. If Everton are at their best, Dominic Calvert-Lewin could be in for a field day and would make for a wise triple captain choice.
Bruno Fernandes – Manchester United vs Fulham – Gameweek 37
Even though their rivals have all but sealed the title, Manchester United aren’t giving up until it’s mathematically impossible for them to snatch the title from City’s hands. If, by some miracle, United are still in the running come gameweek 37, they have an ideal matchup against the already relegated Fulham.
Bruno Fernandes has been an absolute revelation for the Red Devils and has been a common choice of captain for FPL managers following fantasyfootballpundits.com, having often been voted amongst the top three players in the polls. With 17 goals and 11 assists to his name, Fernandes is currently the highest-scoring player in the game and his goal contributions don’t look like drying up against a very out of sorts Fulham side. If you still have your triple captain option by gameweek 37, Fernandes vs Fulham could be the ideal matchup.
Mohammed Salah – Liverpool vs Crystal Palace – Gameweek 38
After a challenging season, Liverpool are starting to show signs of the form that led them to the title last year. Although it may be a case of too little too late, The Reds are still in with a shout of finishing in the top four and securing Champions League football. On the final day of the season, they face a Crystal Palace side who have very little to play for. After hammering Palace 7-0 in the reverse fixture this season, Liverpool may well fancy their chances of a key victory.
Liverpool have a strong record against Palace, and they have won their last seven premier league games against the Eagles. Mo Salah has especially loved playing against the London side, with six goals and four assists in his past six Premier League appearances against them.
