I suppose we might as well call this article Suarez or Sturridge? Let’s take a look at the captaincy options going around this week…
Toure – I’ve had to swallow my pride and trade him in, but he’ll face a tough test against Arsenal’s midfield. Wouldn’t be surprised if he pops up for his customary goal, but I can’t see him pushing forward too much in such a vital game. Not for me.
Lukaku – I know a few will consider Lukaku, however I’d still be avoiding him. He’s had 3 double figure scores all season, compare that to Suarez’s 13 and he has a way to go yet.
1. Suarez – Ok, before we go any further I can confirm that I haven’t picked the highest scorer from SAS for 7 weeks. It’s honestly the toughest captaincy year I’ve faced playing fpl, how do you separate them?! However I’ve liked Suarez’s positioning since Rodgers has moved to 3 in midfield with Sterling on the bench. Let’s hope it stays this way, he looked much more dangerous than Sturridge last week and he should be your captain with Liverpool facing Spurs at Anfield. Let’s not forget what he did to them last time!!!
2. Rooney – He was brilliant against West ham, finally Moyes gave him run upfront!!! With RVP still out he will be United’s focal point against Villa at home and he should be in for another big week. Not a bad option if you’re a risk taker.
3. Sturridge – Don’t think Sturridge is worth the risk, he usually gets subbed in the second half and with Suarez coming back central he’s not been the focal point he was a few weeks ago. Still a very solid option.
Hazard – I’m always hesitant in captaining Hazard, however his added bonus of penalties are making him a viable option. Crystal Palace are a solid defensive outfit and Chelsea won’t have it their own way. Not for me this week, but he’s always one for the punters!
That’s it for the captains this week, if you have any last minute queries ask away in the comments! Cheers.
