Gameweek 24 Captaincy – the beauty of a double 🪢gameweek is that all of our captaincy 👨✈️ picks last week (even differential Mahrez) hit double digits 🎳points total, hopefully you all went with one! This week is the first ‘standard’ gameweek in a while, and for our 3 🕒 captaincy choices, we present to you Haaland, Rashford and our differential pick, Joao Felix
E Haaland 🇳🇴 👑 (Nottingham Forest 🌳 (A) – 86% ownership)
An attacking return in each game last week, and could easily have had more were it not for the injury 🤕 and Mahrez taking a penalty 🥅 despite Pep confirming Haaland is first choice 🤷♂️. Remains as solid a captaincy pick as ever. There’s been a little speculation 🤔 of his minutes being managed ahead of Leipzig – bear in mind Haaland’s failed to start one PL game all season when fit, and in that one he came on as a sub and scored ⚽️. City are still in a close title race, so while it’s tough to be certain, I reckon he’s likely to start 🎬 and will then come off if City are comfortable. Otherwise, it’s the usual – 26 goals ⚽️in the league this season ✅, one blank in 5 games ✅, seven double digit returns this season ✅. Will no doubt still be the most captained player
M Rashford 🏴 🤒 🚗 (Leicester (H)) – 55% ownership
A very solid captaincy pick this week, and there’s certainly logic for going with him over Haaland 🤨. Incredible form 🔥since the restart, with 72 points in 9 games, including 8 goals ⚽️ and 2 assists . Pretty much guaranteed to start. Comes up against a Leicester side with a dismal 🗑️xGC record – no clean sheet in 7 PL games and 13 goals conceded. Those who took the plunge with the triple 🎼 captaincy 🍟in GW22 were certainly rewarded…
J Felix 🇵🇹 (Southampton (H)) – 3% ownership
A true punty pick 🤞with only 2 PL appearances, one of which he got a red card 🔴 in! Nevertheless, Felix has clearly been the linchpin of every Chelsea game he’s played with, and was rewarded with a goal ⚽️ and 3 ☘️bonus points last time round. Incredibly since Felix made his Chelsea debut, he’s second🥈in their squad for shots in the box, big chances and expected goals – despite being suspended ❌for 3/6 fixtures! If you own him, a captaincy pick against rock 🪨 bottom southampton at home may not be as ludicrous as it sounds. If you don’t own him, worth considering that Chelsea have less upcoming blanks than other teams too.
Our top 🔝pick for this week is Haaland! Who will your #GW24 captain be? Good luck everyone!
