Gameweek 24 Captain Picks :

2 min read
Gameweek 24 Captaincy – the beauty of a double ๐Ÿชขgameweek is that all of our captaincy ๐Ÿ‘จโ€โœˆ๏ธ picks last week (even differential Mahrez) hit double digits ๐ŸŽณpoints total, hopefully you all went with one! This week is the first โ€˜standardโ€™ gameweek in a while, and for our 3 ๐Ÿ•’ captaincy choices, we present to you Haaland, Rashford and our differential pick, Joao Felix
E Haaland ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ด ๐Ÿ‘‘ (Nottingham Forest ๐ŸŒณ (A) – 86% ownership)
An attacking return in each game last week, and could easily have had more were it not for the injury ๐Ÿค• and Mahrez taking a penalty ๐Ÿฅ… despite Pep confirming Haaland is first choice ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ. Remains as solid a captaincy pick as ever. Thereโ€™s been a little speculation ๐Ÿค” of his minutes being managed ahead of Leipzig – bear in mind Haalandโ€™s failed to start one PL game all season when fit, and in that one he came on as a sub and scored โšฝ๏ธ. City are still in a close title race, so while itโ€™s tough to be certain, I reckon heโ€™s likely to start ๐ŸŽฌ and will then come off if City are comfortable. Otherwise, itโ€™s the usual – 26 goals โšฝ๏ธin the league this season โœ…, one blank in 5 games โœ…, seven double digit returns this season โœ…. Will no doubt still be the most captained player
M Rashford ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ฅ๓ ฎ๓ ง๓ ฟ ๐Ÿค’ ๐Ÿš— (Leicester (H)) – 55% ownership
A very solid captaincy pick this week, and thereโ€™s certainly logic for going with him over Haaland ๐Ÿคจ. Incredible form ๐Ÿ”ฅsince the restart, with 72 points in 9 games, including 8 goals โšฝ๏ธ and 2 assists . Pretty much guaranteed to start. Comes up against a Leicester side with a dismal ๐Ÿ—‘๏ธxGC record – no clean sheet in 7 PL games and 13 goals conceded. Those who took the plunge with the triple ๐ŸŽผ captaincy ๐ŸŸin GW22 were certainly rewardedโ€ฆ
J Felix ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡น (Southampton (H)) – 3% ownership
A true punty pick ๐Ÿคžwith only 2 PL appearances, one of which he got a red card ๐Ÿ”ด in! Nevertheless, Felix has clearly been the linchpin of every Chelsea game heโ€™s played with, and was rewarded with a goal โšฝ๏ธ and 3 โ˜˜๏ธbonus points last time round. Incredibly since Felix made his Chelsea debut, heโ€™s second๐Ÿฅˆin their squad for shots in the box, big chances and expected goals – despite being suspended โŒfor 3/6 fixtures! If you own him, a captaincy pick against rock ๐Ÿชจ bottom southampton at home may not be as ludicrous as it sounds. If you donโ€™t own him, worth considering that Chelsea have less upcoming blanks than other teams too.
Our top ๐Ÿ”pick for this week is Haaland! Who will your #GW24 captain be? Good luck everyone!
