Captains

Man City options to headline Gameweek 37 captaincy

Manchester City and Chelsea are likely to be the teams at the forefront of the Gameweek 37 captaincy debate.

Both teams have appealing home fixtures this weekend, with Leicester City coming to the Etihad Stadium and Watford visiting Stamford Bridge.

Sergio Aguero (£11.9m) has more goals at home than any other forward this season, while the Foxes have not kept a clean sheet on the road since Gameweek 21 – before Brendan Rodgers took charge from Claude Puel.

The fact that the Argentinian found the net for the first time since Gameweek 32 on Sunday afternoon, he will certainly be in the minds of our voters.

The latest captain poll is now open and users can cast their choices either embedded in the article below or in the sidebar of our website.

Raheem Sterling (£11.6m) is likely to be another go-to option, despite registering just an assist in his last three Premier League outings.

He still has a 66.9% ownership among the top 10,000 managers, just 6% shy of Aguero.

A potential differential for Gameweek 37 could be Eden Hazard (£10.9m), and it will be interesting to see how much traction his cause becomes in the next few days.

The meeting with Watford on Sunday afternoon could conceivably be the Belgian’s last in a Chelsea shirt at Stamford Bridge, which might bring the best out of him.

However, Hazard has home form to back that sentiment up, with 47 points in his last four in front of his own fans.

That averages out at 11.75 points per game in that time, while Watford are without a clean sheet on the road since Gameweek 25.

Despite scoring five times on Huddersfield at Anfield on Friday, it is possible that a trip to Newcastle might put some managers off Liverpool options for Gameweek 37.

However, the Magpies have just one clean sheet at home since Gameweek 28, and with Premier League safety now secured the stakes are not quite as high for Rafa Benitez’s side.

Sadio Mané‘s (£10.1m) goal threat has largely been limited to Anfield matches this season, but Mohamed Salah (£13.3m) has more away goals than any other midfielder this season.

Manchester United’s visit to Huddersfield could present an opportunity for some differential captains.

The Terriers have now conceded 15 goals in their last four matches, at an average of 3.75 per game.

They are the perfect opponents for the Red Devils to face as they hope to book a finishing place in the division’s top four and claim Champions League football.

Paul Pogba (£8.5m) and Romelu Lukaku (£10.7m) will probably the ones that are looked at, although Marcus Rashford (£7.3m) is sure to be considered if he is passed fit.

Meanwhile, the form player in the league is Jamie Vardy (£9.0m) with the same number of goals in eight matches under Brendan Rodgers than in the 28 before that.

Such incredible form could see him act as a differential captain once again, even if Leicester travel to face Manchester City in Gameweek 37.

Raúl Jiménez (£6.9m) might also be looked at with Fulham coming to Molineux although the Cottagers have now recorded three clean sheets in a row.

    Trippier to Laporte worth a -4?

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 26 days ago

      Probably not, unless you have no bench defenders fit

    2 great CL ties this week. 🙂

    1. Salah'd n Sauce
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 26 days ago

      Really looking forward to tomorrow night.
      I think spurs have a decent chance against Ajax but they'll need to raise their game a bit.

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 3 Years

      Yeah going be great

    3. HamezMace
      • 5 Years

      Indeed.
      Especially tomorrow night, should be a classic.

      1. Berbinho's Forehead
        • 9 Years
        9 months, 26 days ago

        I think the winner of the competition comes from tomorrow's tie.

        1. HamezMace
          • 5 Years
          9 months, 26 days ago

          You'll have to think so.
          Although if Spurs go through, I'd say Spurs v Liverpool would be 50-50 on the night.

    Locked in a bit of a battle in my Main ML. Didn't do enough to close the gap on my rival last week and so he has a 10 point lead going into the final hurrah. ... No chips for either of us. Both teams are below.

    My Team :-
    Ryan/Foster
    Laporte / Robbo / Doherty (Valery/Duffy)
    Erkisen / Sterling / Son / mane / Redmond
    Jiminez / Firmino (Gray)

    His Team :-
    Ryan/Foster
    Laporte/Robbo/Duffy (vertonghen/Valery)
    Mane/ Jota / Son / Sterling (JWP)
    Gray / Jimi / Aguero

    When you strip it down you have doherty / Eriksen / Redmond / Firmino VS Vertonghen / Jota / JWP / Kun

    Now, there are a few differences in there. Having watched the last few spurs games though doubling up any further is a no go as they have been woeful (cue a haul). To push the differential a bit I was considering Son > Pogba as an all or nothing punt.
    A lot of people seem to be aiming at shifting Eriksen but I can't see any real reason why either would be rested with only a few games in their season left.

    Thoughts / advice? Would love to bridge that gap. I know it's all gna boil down to a final day frenzy but Id like to set up as best I can this week and next.

      I think your team is better than his and kun is a strong differential this week. Don't overthink too much. 🙂

      1. Salah'd n Sauce
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 26 days ago

        Unfortunately HE has Kun rather than me...... 😐

          Oops sorry. Better get kun then!

            • 3 Years

            😀

    2. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 26 days ago

      He could sink you with Kun Captain this week. Also, I couldn’t drop Son. Eriksen to Pogba perhaps and Captain Sterling and pray 🙂 good luck mate

      1. Salah'd n Sauce
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 26 days ago

        Cheers. It's been a good battle. I'd like to sneak it at the finish line though.

    3. Klein
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 26 days ago

      For me its tired eriksen vs rested son. Erik also gives a few change to get hazard. But on a good day both can smash.
      Pogba's heat map has been pretty bad. Rashford if fit would be better imo.

      1. Salah'd n Sauce
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 26 days ago

        Ta. Will not be making any early changes this week. Keeping a good eye on the CL fixtures etc.

    My plan is to ditch the awful kolasinac for laporte this week. Rivals have him and city seem to be taking defending seriously right now!

    Better to sell Lloris to Guaita or Eriksen to Bernardo Silva to fund it?

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 26 days ago

      Guaita

  5. Lord Tachanka
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 26 days ago

    Doherty + Eriksen to PVA + ......

    A) Pogba
    B) Bilva
    C) Siggy

    1. Toblerone52 - Hung like a H…
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      B if any

    2. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years

      C

  6. RAFA THE GAFFA

    9 months, 26 days ago

    Morning all. Thoughts on these moves?.... Foster+Eriksen+Gray >> Guaita+Pogba+Zaha (-4)

    Ryan
    Laporte. TAA. Doherty
    Sterling. Mané. Eriksen. Son
    Agüero. Jiménez. Gray
    (Foster, Duffy, Højbjerg, Bednarek)

    1. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 26 days ago

      Get Hazard.

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 26 days ago

        How? 🙂

        1. Berbinho's Forehead
          • 9 Years
          9 months, 26 days ago

          Eriksen & Son -> Hazard & Jota possible? Then you can do Jota -> Redmond in GW38.

          1. RAFA THE GAFFA
            • 3 Years
            9 months, 26 days ago

            Possible I guess. No Son could massively backfire though and I’m trying to consolidate a few leagues

        2. B.D.
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 1 Year
          9 months, 26 days ago

          You can sell Gray, Duffy and Eriksen to get Hazard?

    2. Warby84
      • 4 Years
      9 months, 26 days ago

      Think hit on Gkp is pointless, palace could easily concede

      1. RAFA THE GAFFA
        • 3 Years
        9 months, 26 days ago

        It was to find the other two moves

        1. RAFA THE GAFFA
          • 3 Years
          9 months, 26 days ago

          Fund*

  7. Hansel
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    9 months, 26 days ago

    A) Trippier + Eriksen -> Diop (only for this week, SOU) + Hazard

    B) Trippier + Foster -> TAA + Pickford

    C) Trippier + Ryan -> TAA + Guaita

    1. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 26 days ago

      A, no brainer.

    2. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 26 days ago

      D) Trippier + Eriksen -> Robertson + Pogba

  8. simong1
    • 1 Year
    9 months, 26 days ago

    12 points behind the leader in my ML. He has Hazard but no City cover. Looking to change Eriksen. Should I bring in Sterling or Hazard for him considering my rival’s team?

    1. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 26 days ago

      Hazard.

    2. Hansel
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 26 days ago

      Sterling

    3. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 26 days ago

      12 is still close. I’d go hazard this week

      1. tm370
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        9 months, 26 days ago

        Sterling - most points per game on the game and he wont be rested. Better fixtures as well

  9. BarrowAFC
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 4 Years
    9 months, 26 days ago

    What to do with this team? 3 points behind in mini league

    Gunn
    Vertonghen - TAA - Doherty
    Salah - Mane - Martial - Deulofeu
    Ings - Aguero - Vardy

    Foster - Valery - Duffy - Elliott

    1FT £1.1m ITB

    I'm thinking... Ings + Martial > Jimenez + Jota/Fraser (-4) ?

    1. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 26 days ago

      With Lukaku and Rashford supposedly injured, Martial probably starts the remaining 2 games.

      Hold fire till Friday imo and then decide what to do.

      1. Christina.
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        9 months, 26 days ago

        Martial had a fall out with OGS

        1. Berbinho's Forehead
          • 9 Years
          9 months, 26 days ago

          Yeah, wouldn't be surprised. If that's the case then BarrowAFC should probably get Jota for this week.

          1. BarrowAFC
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            9 months, 26 days ago

            Cheers. Yeah according to reports Martial is being made the scapegoat for all United problems (probably to take the pressure away from De Gea) so I can't see him being ahead of Sanchez and Lingard in the pecking order so should probably get rid. Jota/Jimi double up v Fulham is very tempting

            1. K_UN_DE_BRU_YNE
              • 2 Years
              9 months, 26 days ago

              Yes but not over confident myself with double wolves attacker coz Fulham can limit them with only one GOAL or possible blank..m done against Fulham while captaining inform siggurdson against them !!!

  10. Miguel Sanchez
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 26 days ago

    17 points isn't too much of a gap when I should have the following players as differentials to the mini-league leader:

    Me: Robertson, Salah, Hazard, Sterling, Pogba, Wilson

    Them: Ederson, Trippier, Son, Eriksen, Jota, Aguero (TC)

    1. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 26 days ago

      If Aguero blanks, I favour your players.

    Afternoon all

    Depending on Firmino injury news, which move would you prefer to see out the last 2 GWs?

    A) Save this week, 2FT for GW38
    B) Son, Firmino > Sterling, Wilson (-4)
    C) Son, Firmino > Haz, Wilson/ Rash/ Zaha (-4)
    D) Firmino > Wilson/ Rash/ Zaha (FT)
    E) Something else

    1FT 0.4itb
    Lloris
    Robbo, Laporte, Doherty
    Salah, Son*, Jota, Mili
    Kun, Jimi, Firmino*
    (Foster) (JWP, Valery, Yoshida)

    In my cash ML 2 of the 3 above me have Sterling and 2 also have both Son/ Eriksen so I expect them to maybe go for Haz or Pog

    Leaning towards getting in Haz but not having Sterling is scaring me a little now

    Advice appreciated. Thanks!

    1. Berbinho's Forehead
      • 9 Years
      9 months, 26 days ago

      If Firmino is out then C with the Hazard/Wilson duo.

        Cheers BF

        Do you reckon if we don’t have definitive info he’s worth holding? He was meant to be my differential pick!

        What’s your feeling re. tomorrow night?! I’m hoping we can frustrate or surprise them enough this leg and then bring them to Anfield and finish the job.... YNWA

  12. The Head-Ake
    • 3 Years
    9 months, 26 days ago

    Vardy + Son + Eriksen out (-4) for :

    1) Haz + Rash + Pogba
    2) Haz + Sterling + Long

    1. The Head-Ake
      • 3 Years

      2 FT and 0.3 ITB? * means bench-warmers.

      Lloris, Ryan*
      Robertson, Cathcart*, Doherty, Valery*, Laporte

        You still fancy Rashford? I love the fixtures but he has been nursing an injury for a while and it shows in his form.

            • 3 Years

            It's between Wilson and Zaha as alternatives for me.

              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              9 months, 26 days ago

              Zaha doesn't take enough shots for me. Not sure what he does in the box since his touches are sky high.

              1. Holmes (specialist in failu…

                And feels like he has such a low ceiling. Might go Wilson and hope for one of his away day braces at Selhurst Park.

        Pogba
        Shaw
        Zaha

    What do you think about this move Son & Vardy to Pogba & Lacazette? on 2 free transfers

    1. Men in green tights
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    1. Miguel Sanchez
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      9 months, 26 days ago

      As long as they don't bring in Hazard it looks your best bet.

      1. Murder On Zidanesfloor
        • 1 Year
        9 months, 26 days ago

        Chasing 40 points as well, Hazard TC really does look like the only thing that can work

  17. Hazz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 2 Years
    9 months, 26 days ago

    Of course I'll watch tonight but, thoughts on Son > Bernado Silva?

    Lloris
    Robertson / Laporte / Valery
    Salah / Mané / Son / Jota
    Aguero / Vardy / Jimenez

    Foster // Yoshida / Hojbjerg / Masina

    Even if I don't do it this week, I may do it alongside Hojberg > Redmond with exact change, and without a hit.

    1. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      B.Silva plays a bit deeper with KDB out. But if it is the only way to get Redmond, who I might captain in final GW then go for it.

    A) Shaw (hud) + Shaw (CAR) + Ederson (bha)

    OR

    B) Keane (BUR) + Redmond (HUD) + Lloris (EVE)
