Captain Sensible

Who is the best FPL captain for Double Gameweek 25?

Fantasy Premier League are largely between Southampton and Leeds United assets for the Double Gameweek 25 captaincy.

Patrick Bamford (£6.9), Raphinha (£5.4m) and Danny Ings (£8.4m) have replaced the usual suspects as the front-runners considering they each face two fixtures in the next week.

Despite Leeds and Southampton sitting 11th and 13th in the Premier League respectively, they offer plenty of entertainment value for neutral fans thanks to Marcelo Bielsa and Ralph Hasenhüttl’s offensive approaches to the game.

Still, some Fantasy managers might be tempted by some of the single Gameweek options, especially with Bruno Fernandes (£11.5m) facing an out-of-form Newcastle defence.

As ever, the Captain Sensible article is here to help with your Double Gameweek 25 captaincy decision. As this uses extensive data from the Fantasy Football Scout Premium Members Area, only those with a valid subscription can access it in full.

CAPTAIN POLL

Bamford is the runaway leader in this week’s Captaincy Poll, nearly 60.0% of our voters willing to hand the armband to Leeds’ leading goal-scorer.


Behind him in the second place is team-mate Raphinha, just short of 14.0% of total votes. The former Rennes player has now delivered Fantasy returns in each of his last five Premier League appearances and, of course, as a midfielder, stands to be better rewarded for clean sheets and goals than Bamford.

Fernandes and Ings are tied in third, gaining 7.8% of votes each.

Understandably, Fantasy managers are willing to back Leeds assets given their attacking potential and high ceiling but are Fernandes and Ings capable of delivering bigger scores as this week’s differential captaincy picks? Is there perhaps an overlooked player, for example the Goals Imminent table king Nathan Redmond (£6.4m), worth our consideration

    Any news on the Cavani injury? Will he be fit to start on GW25?

    Odegaard is player beyond his years.

    By which I mean that he plays like he has ability that he's yet to master.

      He really is. I’d say he plays so far beyond his years he’s at around 72.

    The Review: GW 24

    Hi everyone, welcome to the latest edition of “The Review” where I answer all your pertinent questions ahead of the upcoming double GWs:

    Q: Which Leeds assets should FPL managers own for the double GW?

    Patrick Bamford is the obvious one. No player has a higher non penalty xG nor more shots inside the box than Bamford this season. Now, I compare Harrison and Raphinha as this seemed to be a very popular question this GW:

    Harrison v Raphinha past six matches

    Mins per big chance created: None created v 515
    Mins per shot in the box: 55 v 57
    Mins per big chance: 492 v 258
    Mins per expected involvement: 385 v 187

    Harrison v Raphinha over the season

    Mins per big chance created: 592 v 322
    Mins per shot in the box: 62 v 48
    Mins per big chance: 197 v 430
    Mins per expected involvement: 248 v 210

    Raphinha’s numbers are much better over the past six matches, even though over the season their numbers are close. I would go with Raphinha, given the fact that his numbers are better and because of late he has been playing in advanced positions closer to Bamford.

    Dallas is a tricky one. I personally don’t think Leeds will keep a clean sheet either in double GW 25 or 26 so whether or not to pick him for attacking potential alone is what makes it trickier. It makes more sense for FPL managers without a Free Hit to pick him, as Dallas has a playable fixture in GW 29 too. With a Free Hit intact, I don’t think I would. Struijk is another one who has accumulated two big chances over the past four matches and offers a cheap route into the Leeds defence, but I don’t think it warrants investment.

    Q: Who is the best captaincy option this GW?

    Southampton have a tough-ish fixture against Chelsea so I’m backing a Leeds asset here as I expect them to score in both games. I run a few comparisons to help me pick one out of “Bam-phinha”:

    Bamford v Raphinha past six matches

    Mins per big chance created: 117 v 515
    Mins per shot in the box: 39 v 57
    Mins per big chance: 195 v 258
    Mins per expected involvement: 148 v 187

    Bamford v Raphinha over the season

    Mins per big chance created: 324 v 322
    Mins per shot in the box: 29 v 48
    Mins per big chance: 108 v 430
    Mins per expected involvement: 159 v 210

    The fact that Bamford’s numbers over long sustained periods are better and that he is FPL-aware (probably likely to captain himself this double GW so will have extra motivation!) makes me lean towards Bamford (c) this week.

    Q: In this section, I speak about Southampton.

    No team has conceded more big chances per game than Southampton over the past nine GWs (∼2.63 now v 1.8 over the season). Southampton's defensive numbers have been poor for a while now – even if the Man United game isn't included, they are still conceding nearly two big chances per game which somewhat puts me off their defence. If they have three back-to-back doubles though, I might be inclined to pick McCarthy as my keeper who was backed by Hassenhutl publicly before the Wolves fixture. There are growing calls among fans asking him to be dropped though – make of that what you will.

    Ings’ numbers to be fair have been poor over the season and not been reflective of his FPL price tag that he has been carrying. However, he has registered five shots inside the box and three big chances over the past two games which even though is a small sample size, might indicate that he is getting into some kind of form. Leeds are only second to West Brom for expected goals conceded (xGc) this season so that fixture alone has cemented Ings in my wildcard team.

    Q: In this section, I talk about Luke Shaw.

    Shaw’s numbers are so incredible that here I decide to dedicate a whole section to him alone. Shaw at the moment looks to be the standout pick among defenders. In the past six games, he has 16 chances created which is top among defenders and he is second for big chances created during this period too. These numbers make him top for expected goal involvement among defenders (xGi) as well. Manchester United have accumulated the second highest number of big chances at home this season which indicates that Shaw is not only a good option for the double GW26, but also for GW25 when he comes up against a toothless Newcastle attack with potential to deliver at both ends of the field.

    What stands out about Shaw is that his numbers are great over a sustained period. Over the past eight game weeks, Shaw is second for chances created for all players in the league and has created more chances than even the likes of Bruno and Grealish. He has accumulated the most assists during this spell too. What makes him an even more explosive option is that he has the best mins per BPS ratio of all Man United defenders too so he can haul big through accumulation of bonus whenever Man United keep a clean sheet.

    Q: In this section, I discuss all things Chelsea related.

    Just four players (Kovacic, Jorginho, Azpilicueta, Rudiger) have started in all four of Tuchel's Premier League games so far. Considering no European commitments, that amount of rotation we have witnessed is a bit startling. All Chelsea assets seem to be at risk of rotation in the upcoming doubles. I look at some of their key performers though, and I expect these should be first choice for at least the short term:

    Marcos Alonso has recorded the highest numbers of shots inside the box (8) and penalty area touches (18) across all defenders over the last four GWs – bear in mind that he started just three of these four games which highlights the upside that he possesses. Chelsea since Tuchel has taken over are best for expected goals conceded so the potential for clean sheets is clearly there. Risk averse FPL managers should look at Rüdiger who is more affordable and presents a safer route into the Chelsea defence. What’s worth noting for wildcarders is that even though Chelsea’s fixtures in the double GW itself are difficult (LIV mun), their fixtures either side of the double (sou EVE lee) look promising which is very important as wildcarders should not be looking to pigeon hole themselves into just a GW 26 team.

    Timo Werner is top for big chances and non-penalty xG since Tuchel has taken over while Mason Mount is top of all players in the league for chances created over the past eight GWs, but for me the value still lies in the Chelsea defence for those FPL managers looking to invest in Chelsea assets.

    Q: In this section, I highlight some trends I have noticed with Villa’s attack.

    Villa season averages v Villa last four games: (league position for relevant stat in brackets)

    Shots in the box per game: 11 (2nd) v 5.8 (14th)
    Big chances per game: 3 (2nd) v 0.8 (20th)
    Average xG per game: 1.8 (3rd) v 0.7 (20th)

    These numbers are suggesting that Villa have started grinding out results. Villa's xG of 0.1 this GW was the lowest they recorded in a match this season which was in line with Brighton's stellar home defensive numbers this term. I now consider the impact this had on some of their FPL assets. Grealish's numbers over the past 9 matches have witnessed an alarming decline and are following a similar trend to those of Villa's:

    Grealish 20/21 v Grealish's past 9 matches

    Mins per big chance created: 117 v 202
    Mins per shot in the box: 39 v 135
    Mins per big chance: 195 v 807
    Mins per expected involvement: 148 v 290

    This trend however does not apply to Watkins who is in the top four for xG and shots inside the box for all players in the league over the same period. Villa’s defensive numbers have dropped too, but Villa are lucky to have in goal the FPL legend that is Emi Martínez. Brighton had a xG of over two this GW, and were denied time and again by Martínez. Martínez now ranks in the top three for goalkeepers for xG prevented over the course of the season.

    Q: In this section, I speak about Manchester City.

    First, I highlight the improvement they have made in attack over the recent weeks:

    Man City first 11 matches (GW 2-12) v Man City past 13 matches (GW 13-24): (league position for relevant stat in brackets)

    Shots in the box per game: 9.54 (2nd) v 10.53 (1st)
    Big chances per game: 2.45 (4th) v 3.30 (1st)
    Average xG per game: 1.51 (5th) v 2.08 (1st)

    While City were middling for attacking numbers earlier on in the season given their high standards, it’s finally good to see them back with fluidity in full form. Gündoğan has already registered as many big chances since GW13 than he did in his previous two seasons combined. Since GW13, he is top of big chances for all players in the league and has converted 60% of the big chances that have fallen his way during this run. At the moment, he is offering incredible value and should be a lock in your teams even if he was producing 60% of the output that he is at the moment.

    De Bruyne’s re-emergence is unlikely to have an impact on the FPL climate, in my opinion. Pep has already seen his team do really well without him so has no apparent reason to play him for extended periods in the league as yet. Gündoğan’s numbers even with De Bruyne in the team were decent, so he should continue to offer good value.

    Pep’s comments about rotation make it a tough call on who to pick in defence though. Ruben Dias seems safest but I think even his appeal has taken a hit given the extended run Laporte is being given in the first team. Cancelo has the highest upside but carries a risk of rotation too – I think I might still risk going with him on wildcard though.

    Q: In this section, I discuss Liverpool.

    First, I talk about Mohamed Salah. Liverpool's slump has led to a lot of FPL managers, particularly those on wildcard, reconsidering his place in the wildcard team. This post serves as a convenient reminder that Salah is still top for big chances in total and big chances scored among midfielders this season. Recent form is on his side too. He scored a goal in the Champions League this week as well and in the past four game weeks Salah is in the top three for big chances, shots in the box and non-penalty xG. With these stats, there is no reason for FPL managers to sell him. He now comes up against an Everton side who are in the bottom three for xG non penalty conceded over the past four matches. It’s also worth noting that even during the most recent GW, Fulham's xG of ∼2.5 v Everton was not only the highest of the GW but also the highest xG Fulham have recorded in a Premier League game this season.

    Now I talk about the Liverpool defence. No team in the league has made more direct errors leading to goals this season than Liverpool. Their direct errors leading to goals this season are already 40% more than in the entirety of 2019/20. No team has conceded more big chances than Liverpool over the past two games and their defensive numbers are a shadow of what we have seen in the past. Only five teams have conceded more big chances than Liverpool this season while even the likes of Burnley and Newcastle have conceded fewer big chances till date.

    What is interesting though is that their fixtures on paper (EVE shu/CHE FUL wol) look like good ones for their defence so whether or not to invest in the likes of Trent or even go cheaper with Kabak is a tough call. Trent is still top for defenders for penalty area touches and touches in the final third over the past six GWs so the attacking potential is still there.

    Q: In this section, I cover Leicester.

    Leicester’s fixtures look great for GW 26 and beyond (ARS/bur bha SHU). Vardy is an evergreen FPL asset and his numbers are still right up there. He has played considerably fewer minutes than some of the other players yet he is by far and away topping the charts for xG and big chances in the league over the season. I believe funds will be an issue for most managers, so for those looking to invest in the Leicester midfielders, I use fpltipsindia’s (on Twitter) comparison:

    Maddison vs Barnes (last six GW's)

    Mins per big chance 603 vs 205.3
    Mins per shot inside box 100.5 vs 51.3
    Mins per expected involvement 262.2 vs 182.8

    Barnes as expected is out-stating Maddison for goal threat. Maddison’s creativity has improved though –until a few weeks ago Maddison had just created the one big chance over the course of the season. However, he has already created three big chances over the past four matches so his creativity numbers are on the rise. He tends to do better for bonus than Barnes because of his chance creation too.

    Q: Should I wildcard this week if I have all chips available?

    This is a team-specific question which should be dependent on what your team looks like. For FPL managers heavily loaded on West Ham and Burnley assets having very few Leeds and Southampton assets at their disposal, I think the wildcard presents a good opportunity. A lot of FPL managers have loaded up on West Ham defence, Souček and Antonio but given the upcoming fixtures for West Ham (TOT mci LEE mun ARS) and the lack of a double, wildcarding away from these assets presents a golden chance for FPL managers to gain ground. The same applies for Burnley defence as well which was high owned because of double GW 24 and now have tough fixtures after GW 25 (WBA tot,LEI ARS eve).

    I would like to thank @urboihamza (on Twitter) whose hard work behind the scenes often goes unnoticed but without his help this article wouldn’t be possible. It would be great if you could offer him some encouragement (follows/feedback appreciated!).

      I got 11 Players possible playing DGW 26 and 2 FT will make 13 (still enough to use my BB), but i have to be wary of the BGW 29...
      So far only 4 players (leeds and west ham), but there could be spurs vs villa add to that BGW which will give me 7 players available. still waiting for update before playing any of my chips...
      and will leave my TC for late GW fixture.

    Repost.

    Antonio / DCL >> Ings? 1FT. 8.5m Itb.

    McCarthy
    Dias, Dallas, Cancelo, Tarko
    Son, Bruno, Gündo*, Raphina
    Bamford, Antonio*
    (Pope, DCL*, Coufal, Soucek)

    1. Kuzser

      Antonio for me. Dcl will have multiple dgw

  5. fantasywizard

    Need one Leeds defender for GW25 and also as a long term plan for GW29. Can't afford Dallas. Who should I go for?

    1. HMC
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Don’t know why you’d want any Leeds defender not named Dallas

      1. fantasywizard
        • 8 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        For the DGW25 and as a plan for GW29 to have 9 playing players.

        1. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          It could easily be 2pts x2 games then costing transfer out
          Not sure it’s worth it personally. If you can’t afford Dallas for this goal threat I would look elsewhere
          Eg: Brighton play gw29 and could just as easily outperform Leeds defender

  6. BENOIT
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    3 months, 28 days ago

    Is Struijk a safe pick?

    1. fantasywizard
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      I'm wondering the same as well. Surely Ayling most nailed therefore after Dallas should be the best bet...

    2. Rupert The Horse
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years

      Yes fairly. Poor mans Dallas though.

    3. Pukki Party
      • 3 Years

            We are in the same boat. All chips intact, want to BB in 26, but don't want to go in blindly. If the fixtures drop tomorrow we should have enough time to WC, I hope!

        Won’t use WC until fixtures are announced, was planning to WC this week then BB in 26. Not sure what to do now

      Which one to drop from my WC team?
      A) Dallas
      B) Dunk
      C) Targett

      Thanks

        C if you have Martinez

    • Kuzser
      • 4 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      At the moment not planning to WC in 26, but this may change.
      Will appreciate your help on 2 questions guys:
      Is anything worth a hit here?
      1) Sterling-> Salah
      2) Sterling-> Gundo
      3) Antonio-> Ings

      Which 2 to bench?
      A) Barnes
      B) Stones
      C) Antonio
      D) Mee

      Team is:
      Martinez
      Mee - Dallas - Cancelo
      Son - Bruno - Sterling - Barnes - Raphinha
      Bamford - Cavani

      Antonio, Stones, Coufal

        I'm considering Sterling to Salah myself.. it seems like a sensible move

        1. Kuzser
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          Would you do it for a bit though? I’m worried that Sterling will be benched this week

      Auba doesnt look like someone who's fresh off a hattrick.

        Yeah looks really tense ..that first half miss probably haunting still

      So looking at Ben Crellin SS. Either Fulham or Southampton miss out as only one of those can play Spurs.

      And I'd say both WBA and Sheff United will miss out as Villa will play Everton.

      Assuming DGW26 happens as "planned"

      Is a bench boost of Martinez, Bamford, Raphina and Dallas worth it? Or would you take a -4 or -8 to remove one or two of the above?

      1. Atwood
        • 11 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Definitely worth it. I plan on doing similar.

      2. WE GO FOR IT
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        I'm probably gonna take a -4 to remove Bamford and Raph.

        I’d just go ahead and play it I think

        Problem is you'll want them back for 29 if you don't have a WC.

        If Leeds looking good in next few then probably as good a time as any to do it

    • Apwilkin
      • 1 Year
      3 months, 28 days ago

      McCarthy (Johnston)
      Maguire-Cancelo-Mee
      Son-Fernandes-Salah-Raph
      Bamford(C)-Ings-DCL

      Gundo-Stones-Coufal

      GTG?

      1. luk46
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Gündogan and Stones over Maguire and DCL surely?

        1. Apwilkin
          • 1 Year
          3 months, 28 days ago

          Thats where I’m stuck as well. I am definitely flipping between DCL and Gundo. But do you figure Stones vs Arsenal is better than Maguire vs Newcastle?

      Who's your second keeper for the double?

      1. luk46
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        probably pope, as I had him for last gw anyway

        Martinez

    • fantasywizard
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Has Ole spoke about Cavani in the post match presser? Any news about his injury? Are we thinking that he will play in GW25?

    • luk46
      • 2 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      if you could only pick one:

      A - KWP > Dallas (Son for dgw26)
      B - Son > Raphinha (Kane for dgw26)

      1. Apwilkin
        • 1 Year
        3 months, 28 days ago

        A

        1. luk46
          • 2 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          wanna have Kane for dgw26 really, but not worth it for couple hits then?

          1. Apwilkin
            • 1 Year
            3 months, 28 days ago

            Can you get both with a couple hits? Also I guess I should have asked. What is your back line if you keep KWP?

            1. luk46
              • 2 Years
              3 months, 28 days ago

              would be Cancelo Stones Shaw Coufal KWP for now

    • fantasywizard
      • 8 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Choose one for GW25 and 29:
      A) Struijk
      B) Ayling
      C) Aliosky

      Can't afford Dallas.

        B. Others might lose their place by 29

      Did Pep mention Gundogan injury? Is he likely still out?

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        He’s fine

    • GoonerSteve
      • 11 Years
      3 months, 28 days ago

      Current squad

      McCarthy, Pope
      Stones, Cancelo, Coufal, Justin, Mitchell
      Gundogan, Grealish, Son, Fernandes, Salah
      Bamford, Antonio, DCL

      2ft, 0.9itb.

      Thinking of doing Justin, Grealish, Antonio to Dallas, Raphina, Ings.

      Good moves?

    • Freddiemac123
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Ings in this week for DCL or Cavani? No hit..

      • Rash
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Will there be any team news before the deadline?

        Currently have Gundog, Antonio, cavani, DCL all flagged!

        Was pretty set on bringing in Ricardo Pereira into my WC team for the DGW26, but with Rodgers saying he has to manage his starts this worries me and now unsure if he starts both in the double. Would Soyuncu be a better choice with this in mind?

        1. Ohh1454
          • 3 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          im thinking of getting evans

          Me too but I think their defence is something to avoid atm.

          1. FPL_WILDCARD
            • 3 Years
            3 months, 28 days ago

            How come? Thought they looked alright against Liverpool and took a special goal to take their clean sheet

      • KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Man City double in 26 and 27 as well as Southampton’s in 27 are marked as yellow on Crellin’s SS.

        Are those 100% confirmed to happen in those gameweeks? Since not showing on the main website yet.

        1. Alisson WondHaaland
          • 5 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          I think it was hinted by Pep

        2. dogtanion
          • 11 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          Can you imagine the rotation though with champions league also ongoing

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            3 months, 28 days ago

            Yeah, makes KdB feel much more tempting than Salah though

      • Werner Bremen
        • 2 Years
        3 months, 28 days ago

        Would you rather have Foden or Stones for the next DGW?

        1. Konstaapeli
          • 4 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          Foden

        2. Jambot
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          3 months, 28 days ago

          Foden and who v stones and who?

          It depends who you replace the missing one with for a balanced answer. Unless you are playing 4-4-2 or 3-5-2 in which case I’d go Foden
