Captains

Vote in the Gameweek 16 captain poll

As the manic turnaround between Gameweeks continues we are back to picking our next captain already.

Our latest poll is now live so you can vote on who you believe the best option for the armband is in Gameweek 16.

There are plenty of candidates this time around with very few that leap out to us.

Arsenal’s home meeting with Huddersfield Town is perhaps the most eye-catching with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£11.2m) expected to be the favourite there although Alexandre Lacazette (£9.6m) is also considered.

Liverpool’s assets will be heading to a Bournemouth defence that has deteriorated statistically of late, meaning there could be returns for Mohamed Salah (£13.0m), Roberto Firmino (£9.2m), Xherdan Shaqiri (£7.0m) or Sadio Mané (£9.8m) if he is passed fit.

Fresh from his 12-point haul in Gameweek 15, Harry Kane (£12.5m) may also be a popular figure. He travels to King Power Stadium, to face a Leicester side he has scored seven goals against in his last four meetings with them.

Fantasy managers burned by Pep Guardiola’s rotation policy midweek may be reticent to make any of their Manchester City options their captain this weekend.

Raheem Sterling (£11.5m) will probably be the most backed among his colleagues. A start against Chelsea feels very likely given that he was rested against Watford and has four goals and five assists in his last five appearances.

Leroy Sané (£9.4m) and David Silva (£8.7m) seem the most likely alternatives unless Sergio Aguero (£11.3m) is declared fit between now and the weekend.

However, it will also be interesting to see how much their opponents Chelsea will temper interest in the Manchester City options.

    Bought Auba but now I am worried he will be rested this weekend? He played two full games since Sunday and next game is Saturday. What are your thoughts here?
    Cheers!

      My advice is to stop flapping mate (in the nicest possible way)

      Chill out mate.
      What are you going to do? sell him? He might be on the bench and he might not, not point fretting. Chances are, if he is, he'll come on against a tired defence and bag another brace!

    Unsure on what to do with this, I ideally wanted to do Salah & Arnautovic to Sterling & Lacazette for a -4 but I'm 0.2 short. Any help is appreciated, thanks!

    Fabianski - 4.0
    TAA - Vinagre - David Luiz - AWB - Bennett
    Sane - Salah - Hazard - Milner - Guendouzi
    Kane - Arnautovic - Jimenez

    Maybe Arnautovic -> Chicharito. But, I really want an Arsenal forward, especially against Huddersfield
